Ghislaine Maxwell loses bid to keep Jeffrey Epstein testimony secret

Ghislaine Maxwell loses bid to keep Jeffrey Epstein testimony secret”

Jeffery Epstein's former girlfriend and alleged accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell, has lost a court battle to keep a 2016 deposition sealed.

Epstein, 66, was in a lone cell in the special housing unit of the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY when he was found dead in August 2019.

Epstein, a registered sex offender, killed himself at age 66 in August 2019 at a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

Ghislaine Maxwell, pictured in 2013, was charged by federal prosecutors in early July for allegedly helping recruit, groom and ultimately sexually abuse minors.

Geoffrey Berman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of NY, points to a photograph of Jeffrey Epstein as he announces the financier's charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors, in NY, U.S., July 8, 2019.

Epstein is reported to have said: "The girl I was with because she was French asked me, 'What does white trash mean?'"

Ties to Epstein have always been a source of embarrassment for Trump. Trump and his then-girlfriend, Melania Knauss, were also photographed with Epstein and his occasional girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now in prison for her participation in sex trafficking during her time with Epstein.

A USA federal appeals court rejected an attempt by Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, to block the release of a massive deposition she gave for a 2016 civil suit filed by one of Epstein's accusers.

There's no indication that Epstein was ever inappropriate with Ivanka Trump, but seeing her in close proximity to someone her father knew shared his preference for young girls is unsettling.

The judges wrote the lower court "did not abuse its discretion in rejecting Maxwell's meritless arguments that her interests superseded the presumption of access".

Jeffrey Epstein's longtime girlfriend and alleged co-conspirator unsuccessfully attempted to block the publication of her deposition from a 2015 lawsuit in which Virginia Roberts Giuffre accused the couple of sex trafficking her during the early 2000s.

But Ms Maxwell's lawyers said bad publicity from disclosing "intimate, sensitive, and personal details" from the deposition could undermine her ability to defend herself against criminal charges that she enabled Epstein's sexual abuses. The judge had concluded that there was a presumption of public access to deposition materials.

Audrey Strauss, the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announces charges against Ghislaine Maxwell during a July 2, 2020, press conference in New York City.
