We finally know the names of some of the most important John Does referenced during litigation in Virginia Giuffre v. Ghislaine Maxwell – those who are accused of being alleged perpetrators and witnesses to Jeffrey Epstein’s criminal conductus documents were unredacted or otherwise unsealed in the Giuffre case, marking the beginning of the end of a long battle for documents and information – and really, accountability – that started with Mike Cernovich’s efforts back in 2017.
Early this evening, numerous documents were unredacted or otherwise unsealed in the Giuffre case, marking the beginning of the end of a long battle for documents and information – and really, accountability – that started with Mike Cernovich’s efforts back in 2017.
Tonight’s batch of documents (made available for download by Seamus Bruner) is just part of the records that will be unsealed from the Giuffre case. There are numerous other records, including witness depositions, motions, and other filings, which are yet to be published on the Court’s docket. We anticipate more salacious materials, and more damning allegations against John Doe perpetrators, to be released tomorrow.
Here are the most scandalous allegations from tonight’s documents – including the names of John Does and the details of the allegations they face.
Bill Clinton’s connection to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell is no secret. Epstein and Clinton had a suspiciously close friendship over the years, and Clinton even invited Ghislaine Maxwell to his daughter’s wedding.
Yet mysteries still remain about Clinton’s activities with Epstein and Maxwell. The documents released tonight are only part of what will be unsealed with respect to Clinton. Some are interesting but not altogether scandalous, such as the fact that attorneys for Virginia Giuffre sought to depose Clinton as a witness.
Then there’s the testimony of Johanna Sjoberg, a witness who was hired as a “masseuse” by Epstein when she was in her early twenties. She accompanied Epstein on trips, performed massages on him and his friends (non-sexual), and had frequent interactions with Ghislaine Maxwell – one of which involved Maxwell chastising her for not “finishing” her massage with Epstein.
She testified that she knew Bill Clinton was a friend of Epstein’s, and that Epstein commented on Clinton’s preference for “young” girls:
New details on the allegations against Prince Andrew have also surfaced. Ms. Sjoberg also testified that she met Prince Andrew with Virginia Giuffre (when Virginia was 17 years-old) in New York City, along with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Here is her testimony:
Q: And do you recall who, if anybody, was at Jeffrey’s home when you arrived?
A: Yes. When I first walked in the door, it was just myself, and Ghislaine headed for the staircase and said – told me to come up to the living room.
Q: And what happened at that point, when you came up to the living room?
A: I came up and saw Virginia, Jeffrey, Prince Andrew, Ghislaine in the room.
Q: And did you meet Prince Andrew at that time?
At Epstein’s New York home was a Prince Andrew puppet – apparently from a BBC production. Maxwell brought it down for Prince Andrew, and either Maxwell or Epstein took a scandalous photo of Prince Andrew with the girls.
A: The put the puppet on Virginia’s lap, and I sat on Andrew’s lap, and they put the puppet’s hand on Virginia’s breast, and Andrew put his hand on my breast, and they took a photo.
The more disturbing allegations against Prince Andrew came directly from Virginia Giuffre.
Q: Please name a person that Ghislaine Maxwell directed you to go have sex with?
A: Prince Andrew.
Giuffre also alleged that she was directed to have sex with Epstein friend and billionaire and then-hedge fund manager, Glenn Dubin.
Dubin’s ties to Epstein have been previously reported. Back in 2009, after Epstein was given his sweetheart plea deal from the Department of Justice, the Dubins hosted Epstein for Thanksgiving dinner, “telling his probation officer they were ‘100 percent comfortable’ with his being around their teenage daughter.
Tom Pritzker is a billionaire businessman, serving as Executive Chairman of Hyatt Hotels and as Chairman and CEO of The Pritzker Organization. He’s also a member of the Aspen Institute. Giuffre alleged she slept with him once:
Q: If I were to ask you the question how many times have you had sex with Tom Pritzker, do you know what that question means?
A: I believe so.
Q: All right. And what is the answer to that question?
A: I believe I was with Tom once.
Magician David Copperfield has also emerged in the latest Epstein release. While there are no sex-related allegations against Copperfield at this time, it’s clear from witness testimony that he was friends with Epstein and had at least some knowledge of what was going on at Epstein’s home. Perhaps he had been informed by Epstein or Maxwell that they had a recruiting process where girls were paid to find other girls. According to Johanna Sjoberg:
Michael Jackson and Hollywood
Even Michael Jackson, the King of Pop himself, was friendly with Epstein. He was at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion at least once, as explained in Johanna Sjoberg’s deposition:
Sjoberg would also testify that Epstein would speak on the phone with other celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett:
Frederkick Fekkai is a French celebrity hairstylist and beauty entrepreneur. Sjoberg would testify that Epstein tried to “find some girls for him” while Fekkai was in Hawaii.
Q: Did you ever hear or observe Jeffrey talking on the phone about Frederic Fekkai?
Q: What did you hear?
A: I heard him call someone, and say, Fekkai is in Hawaii. Can we find some girls for him?
Many of the documents that were released today were previously released in the course of the Giuffre v. Maxwell litigation – albeit in a more redacted form. For example, one document from today details allegations that Ghislaine Maxwell took the passport of a 15 year-old girl. We reported on that document back in 2022.
Also, as we discussed on December 19, 2023, not all the “John Does” are alleged to have committed wrongdoing. Today’s documents included “John Does” who were doctors to the victims, friends of the victims, and family members of the victims. It’s been unfortunate – and rather sad – to see the media and various morons with large platforms on social media (the list is long and distinguished) lump those innocent people in with the predatory John Does, as if all the names to be released were part of “Epstein’s List.” (If there is a positive to all of that, we guess it’s that you can really tell who doesn’t do the reading.)
Anyway, the list of unknown John Does (as opposed to the known John Does, such as Sarah Kellen) who are alleged to have committed abuse is rather small. Today’s release doesn’t include all of the perpetrator John Does. There are more names set to be released in the coming days. This includes John Doe 113, a purported Epstein affiliate and witness witness who “is alleged to have engaged in serious wrongdoing.”
And we’ll be here to report on the latest developments.
