Accountability? Epstein Associates To Be Named In Coming Weeks

More than 170 names of associates of deceased and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein are now expected to be released after the new year. This after a federal judge ordered documents containing dozens of identities to be made public.

The fiery materials are from the 2017 civil trial involving victim Virginia Giuffre. She accused Epstein’s former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, of grooming her and others for indecent activities on his private island.

New York Judge Loretta Preska granted the individuals named in the materials 14 days to object to their identities becoming public knowledge. 

Preska explained her reasoning for unsealing the court documents. Several of the persons named in the case have granted media interviews and others have not raised objections to being identified.

There are numerous calls to reveal the names of those around Epstein, and many prominent individuals are rumored to have been frequent guests on his island. He died in a Manhattan prison cell in 2019 while waiting to be tried on federal trafficking charges.

The names in the settled suit are listed as “Jane Does” or “John Does.”

The ruling did not name specific individuals. However, it referenced multiple persons as being “public figures” and noted previous news articles where both victims and Epstein employees were identified. 

There are reportedly several persons who were underage at the time of their involvement with Epstein who will remain anonymous. Judge Preska ruled they were victims and will not be identified.

She also said that others will be protected because revealing their identities would “disclose sensitive information regarding an alleged minor victim.”

The defamation suit brought against Maxwell was settled in 2017 for an undisclosed sum. The accuser said Epstein’s former madame defamed her by accusing her of lying about her treatment by the financier when she was underage.

The transcript of a seven-hour interview with Maxwell concerning the suit was released in 2020.

It included numerous denials by the British socialite that she was involved with Epstein’s schemes. She confessed that on multiple occasions she flew on Epstein’s aircraft with former President Bill Clinton, though she stopped short of calling he and her former boyfriend “friends.”
