THE EPSTEIN CASE AUG. 9, 2019 More Disturbing Details of Epstein’s Alleged Encounters With Underage Girls Emerge By Amanda Arnold@aMandolinz
I’m on this story – like “stink on shit”! Stay tuned.. there is much more to come..
At long last, explosive documents pertaining to billionaire and accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged madam, 57-year-old British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, have been made public.
Though the documents come from a 2015 defamation case against Maxwell, what instigated the drawn-out legal battle goes back much further. In 2009, a woman named Virginia Giuffre alleged in a lawsuit that Maxwell had recruited her into Epstein’s sex ring when Giuffre was just 16 years old — a claim Maxwell repeatedly called “entirely false,” compelling Giuffre to file the defamation lawsuit against Maxwell six years later. The case never went to trial: The parties settled out of court, then a U.S. District Court judge ordered that more than 2,000 pages of documents pertaining to it be sealed. Over the years, courts have challenged this decision while Maxwell has sought to keep the documents private. But today Maxwell lost her battle. A federal appeals court unsealed some of the documents, and they’re as disturbing as anticipated.
Between allegations that Epstein and Maxwell held a 15-year-old girl hostage on the billionaire’s private island and receipts for books Epstein bought about sadomasochism, the details in the documents shed a damning light into the child-sex-trafficking ring Epstein allegedly operated with Maxwell’s help. (Though Epstein was charged with federal sex trafficking in early July, Maxwell has yet to faces any charges for her alleged involvement, and she has repeatedly denied facilitating or participating in any abuse.)
Below, here’s what we’ve learned.
Rinaldo Rizzo, the house manager for one of Maxwell’s close friends, testified that Maxwell once brought a “distraught” 15-year-old Swedish girl into his employer’s home. (In a statement, a spokesperson for his former employer called these allegations “demonstrably false and defamatory.”) Per his testimony, the girl explained to Rizzo and his wife that Maxwell had attempted to force her to have sex with Epstein on his private island (nicknamed Pedophile Island by locals) by taking away her passport and threatening her. When asked to describe her demeanor in more detail, Rizzo said, “Shaking, I mean literally quivering.”
