Epstein Case: 200 Names Finally Revealed

Nearly 200 previously redacted names have been disclosed from court documents in a lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein’s associate, Ghislaine Maxwell. This release was ordered by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in New York, who allowed a two-week period for any appeals by the individuals involved.

The unsealing revealed a list of high-profile individuals, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton’s aide Doug Band, Prince Andrew, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, and French modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, who, like Epstein, died while awaiting trial. Epstein had connections with many prominent figures, including U.S. presidents, foreign prime ministers, members of British royalty, Hollywood stars, and others in the public eye. Some of these names were already known through various sources despite being withheld in the lawsuit.

Notably, many of the revealed names, such as Bill Clinton, have not been accused of any wrongdoing. A spokesperson for Clinton also refuted claims of a close personal relationship with Epstein.

Other names made public include billionaire Glenn Dubin, his former private chef Rinaldo Rizzo, and several of Epstein’s accusers like Johanna Sjoberg and Annie Farmer. New revelations include magician David Copperfield, who faced his own accusations and was described as a friend of Epstein.

Sjoberg’s deposition mentioned notable figures like Clinton, Copperfield, and Trump, recalling conversations and incidents involving Epstein. She also clarified not having given massages to Trump, filmmaker George Lucas, or computer scientist Marvin Minsky.

An email from Epstein to Maxwell accused accuser Virginia Giuffre of lying, mentioning “stven hawking” and an “underage orgy.” Another email showed Maxwell’s publicist discussing media leaks.

Some names were still withheld for reasons such as protecting underage victims and incorrectly identified individuals. Dubin and his wife Eva Andersson Dubin, a former girlfriend of Epstein, have denied knowledge of Epstein’s actions.

The names were part of a lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre, an Epstein accuser, who settled with both Maxwell and Prince Andrew. Maxwell was later sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking Epstein’s victims.

Amidst a push in Congress to reveal more about Epstein’s clients and jet passengers, Tennessee Republicans Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Rep. Tim Burchett have accused Democrats of obstructing the release of these documents. Giuffre has publicly supported these efforts, hinting at the nervousness of some of Epstein’s previously unnamed associates.
