Breaking: Ghislaine Maxwell fights to keep her documents sealed as former friend says he’s seen videos of high-ranking elites have sex with minors
The former friend – who uses the pseudonym William Steel – says Ghislaine Maxwell ‘has tapes of two prominent US politicians having sex with minors’ and boasted of ‘owning’ powerful people.
Steel said they ‘forced’ him to watch the footage as they wanted to convince him of their ‘power’.
And now Maxwell has attempted a last-ditch effort to have court documents kept closed after they were ordered to be unsealed by the presiding judges on her case.
The upcoming release of the unsealed documents could include details about Maxwell’s sex life that her lawyers have previously tried to stop from being released, relating to a seven-hour, 418-page deposition Maxwell gave, which her legal team said was ‘extremely personal, confidential’.
Rumours have been circulating on whether these sealed documents have the names or even the videos and images of politicians with minors.
They will also include communications between Maxwell and Epstein from January 2015 when Roberts made explosive allegations about them in court papers.
In the papers Roberts claimed she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was just 17 at Epstein’s command.
The case ruled on last Thursday was originally brought by Roberts, now a 36-year-old mother-of-three who lives in Australia and goes by her married name Virginia Giuffre.
Maxwell’s lawyers had fought to keep the documents under seal, calling the depositions a ‘series of (efforts) to compel Maxwell to answer intrusive questions about her sex life’.
A cache of documents that are likely to expose explosive details about Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex life during her time as Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged madam are set to be made public.
58 year old Maxwell, is on trial in the coming weeks for her part in the Epstein scandal and has pleaded not guilty to charges that she recruited three teenage girls for him to abuse in the Nineties and early millenia.
She was found and arrested last month hiding in New Hampshire and was denied bail incase she fled back to France where she is a passport holder.
If convicted she faces up to 35 years in prison.
