Judge orders release of explosive sex papers Ghislaine Maxwell wanted hidden

Explosive documents detailing Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex life and Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs will be unsealed within days, thanks to a judge’s ruling. The 80 sets of papers, which Maxwell, 58, had sought to keep secret, include 2016 testimony from Maxwell which she complained involved ‘intrusive’ questions about her sex life.

The papers, which are set to run to hundreds of pages in length, were ordered released by Judge Loretta Preska in New York Thursday after the judge said the public’s right to know outweighed Maxwell’s desire for privacy.

They will expose who traveled on convicted pedophile Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the Lolita Express. Former President Bill Clinton made multiple trips on the Boeing 727, although he has denied any wrongdoing.

The unsealed documents will also include 2015 communications between Maxwell and Epstein after their alleged sex slave Virginia Roberts Giuffre accused them of trafficking her. Giuffre claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew in 2001 when she was 17. Andrew has denied any wrongdoing.

Roberts Giuffre says she and other girls were trafficked by Epstein and Maxwell – his former girlfriend – so ‘politically connected and financially powerful people’ could abuse them. The soon-to-be-released papers have raised the specter of other famous names facing extremely serious allegations as a result of their contents.

And the documents will also detail police call-outs to Epstein’s home in Palm Beach, Florida. Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger told MailOnline she plans to appeal their release over ‘grave concerns about our client’s ability to receive a fair trial.’

Maxwell was arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire on July 2 and charged with child sex trafficking, as well as perjury. She is said to have groomed girls as young as 14 for Epstein to abuse, watched him do so, and joined in with the abuse on at least one occasion.

Maxwell – a French-born British socialite – denies the alleged offenses, said to have taken place in the UK and US between 1994 and 1997. She was last week ordered held at Brooklyn’s grim Metropolitan Detention Center until her trial next July.

Maxwell also faces a charge of perjury over claims she lied at the 2016 court hearing which forms the basis of the documents set to be unsealed. Roberts Giuffre sued Maxwell for defamation after her alleged groomer issued a furious denial of allegations made against her.

That led to a court hearing which saw depositions (sworn evidence) given by Maxwell, Roberts Giuffre and other alleged Epstein victims.

Epstein, a convicted pedophile, killed himself in a Manhattan jail last August while awaiting trial on further child sex trafficking offenses.
