When Jeffrey Epstein died under mysterious circumstances in a Manhattan jail cell, the public thought they would never learn the extent of his crimes.
But now all hell is about to break loose.
And this secret everyone thought Jeffrey Epstein took to the grave is about to be exposed.
A jury convicted Ghislaine Maxwell on five counts of sex trafficking underage girls on behalf of Jeffrey Epstein.
Now that Maxwell is headed to prison for the rest of her life, her attorney, Laura Menninger, wrote to the Court that Maxwell no longer objects to revealing the names of eight “Johns” who engaged in sexual acts with the girls who Epstein and Maxwell trafficked.
“After careful review of the detailed objections submitted by Non-Party Does 17, 53, 54, 55, 73, 93 and 151, counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections,” Menninger wrote. “Each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights. Ms. Maxwell therefore leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review.”
It’s now up to the Court to determine if the names remain under seal.
The names are part of a 2015 defamation case filed by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims Epstein and Prince Andrew of the British Royal Family sexually abused her when she was underage.
Giuffre wrote that in the name of public disclosure and transparency, the court should release the names.
“[G]eneralized aversion to embarrassment and negativity that may come from being associated with Epstein and Maxwell is not enough to warrant continued sealing of information. This is especially true with respect to this case of great public interest, involving serious allegations of the sex trafficking of minors,” Guiffre’s attorney Sigrid McCawley argued.
“Now that Maxwell’s criminal trial has come and gone, there is little reason to retain protection over the vast swaths of information about Epstein and Maxwell’s sex-trafficking operation that were originally filed under seal in this case,” McCawley added.
The names of the men who partook in Epstein and Maxwell’s sex-trafficking operation was information that everyone thought went to the grave with Epstein.
Maxwell’s trial and subsequent conviction provided a second chance for the public to learn the true extent of Epstein’s crimes as well as who was involved.
And there are eight men out in the world who partook in Epstein’s operation who now should be very nervous.
