Court documents related to the case against Jeffrey Epstein that were unsealed on August 9 revealed depositions saying that locals called Epstein’s private island “pedophile island” and that former President Bill Clinton was taken to the island in a black helicopter while underage girls were present, Law and Crime reported.
The documents came from Virginia Giuffre‘s defamation lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell an associate of Epstein who Giuffre says enabled him. Maxwell has said that she barely knew Giuffre.
Giuffre said she was 17 when she was flown to the island at the request of Epstein and was told to “entertain” a friend of his. Guiffre did not say that she had any sexual contact with Clinton in the deposition, and Maxwell has denied being there with Clinton or Giuffre.
Giuffre’s testimony does contradict Clinton’s statements that he was never on Epstein’s island. Giuffre said that she met Epstein between age 15 and 17 at Mar-a-Lago where her father worked at the time.
Only parts of the deposition were released. The next day, Epstein was found dead in his cell in New York. Attorney General William Barr said that the investigation into Epstein would continue and that anyone who was involved “should not rest easy.”
