United States court unseals Maxwell-Epstein emails

United States court unseals Maxwell-Epstein emails

Lawyers for Ms Maxwell or Ms Giuffre did not immediately respond to requests for comment after the documents were unsealed.

While Maxwell sat in a Brooklyn federal jail without bail on charges of grooming underage girls for Epstein's abuse, her legal team filed a flurry of documents arguing publication of the papers would damage her right to a fair trial.

The documents, ordered to be released on Thursday by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska, were from a now-settled defamation lawsuit filed by one of Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claimed in the suit and other litigation that Maxwell recruited her in 2000 to be a sexual servant to Epstein. The stakes are much higher now.

"The government has indicted Ghislaine Maxwell".

"Deciding to participate in or contribute to a criminal investigation or prosecution is a far different matter than simply making a public statement "relating to" Ms. Maxwell or Jeffrey Epstein, particularly since such a statement might have occurred decades ago and have no relevance to the charges in this case".

The accused madam succeeded in winning a brief delay until Monday of publication of her depositions, which are cited in her indictment. Her trial is scheduled for next July.

Shortly before the email, Virginia Roberts Giuffre had accused Maxwell of procuring young girls to have sex with Epstein.

Among the newly released documents were emails Ms Maxwell and Epstein exchanged in January 2015, when Ms Giuffre's allegations were getting a new round of media attention.

Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and eventually abuse at least three girls, one as young as 14, from 1994 to 1997, and committing perjury by denying her involvement under oath.

During the coronavirus pandemic, many countries have recorded significantly more deaths than expected this year. The Health Secretary told Sky News this morning: "This is a decision that's clinically led".

Maxwell pleaded not guilty at her arraignment and has previously denied all allegations of any improper sexual contact.

Other documents released Thursday include flight logs from Epstein's private jets, police reports from Palm Beach, Florida, where Epstein had a home, among other documents.

The emails show that Epstein also sent a statement for Maxwell created to help her distance herself from his crimes and accusations.

Among the materials released on Thursday were January 2015 emails between Epstein and Maxwell, who were identified respectively as "jeffrey E" and either "Gmax" or "G Maxwell".

Unsealed documents contain a July 25, 2015, email from Epstein to Maxwell saying, "You have done nothing wrong and i woudl [sic] urge you to start acting like it".

"Ms. Maxwell's two deposition transcripts were designated "Confidential" and subject to the protection of the protective order", Gee said in his filing.

Maxwell's attorneys tried to stop the documents from surfacing and asked a USA district court judge to intervene with a phone call.

"Go to parties, deal with it", added Epstein, a convicted sex offender who killed himself in prison a year ago while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
