New documents show Jeffrey Epstein contacts with Ghislaine Maxwell

New York City

New York City

Giuffre spoke to "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King in July, and told her "you couldn't say no" to Epstein and Maxwell from her position because "you're afraid for your life". Otherwise, prosecutors said, the women may be harassed or intimidated and become reluctant to cooperate with the government.

Giuffre's testimony during the lawsuit was the centerpiece of the released documents, with Dershowitz one of multiple names mentioned accused of being tied to Maxwell and Epstein's activities.

Numerous documents unsealed by the court Thursday had been available publicly before.

Much of what appears in the documents unsealed late Thursday in NY has previously been reported, including Giuffre's claim that Epstein and Maxwell turned her into a "sex slave" and trafficked her to a long line of wealthy and powerful men.

A US appeals court on Friday temporarily delayed the release of a 2016 deposition about Ghislaine Maxwell's sex life, after she argued it could destroy her ability to get a fair trial against criminal charges she aided the late financier Jeffrey Epstein's sexual abuse of girls.

Prince Andrew lobbied the U.S. government to help get a sweetheart plead-deal for pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein that saw him jailed for just 13 months in 2009, newly unsealed court documents claim.

Maxwell, and all of the accused men, have denied those allegations for years.

They show that the pair corresponded in 2015, despite Maxwell's lawyers claiming in a bail appeal this month that she had no contact with her former partner in more than a decade.

‘Alarming’ that Ghislaine Maxwell may publicize Jeffrey Epstein victims: prosecutors
Lawyers for the British socialite, 58, have filed eleventh-hour paperwork in NY to prevent the files from being made public. Maxwell and all the men accused by Giuffre, including the prince, have denied the allegations.

In an email on January 24, 2015, Maxwell appears to try to distance herself from any romantic relationship she had with Epstein, who befriended countless celebrities over the years. Maxwell is now awaiting trial in NY, charged earlier this month with sex trafficking of underaged girls with Epstein and perjury. Maxwell was recently arrested on federal charges that she recruited at least three girls, including one as young as 14, for Epstein to sexually abuse in the 1990s.

"I demanded release of all documents because they contain emails and manuscripts proving in Guiffre's own words that she never met me", Dershowitz said. She's the one who abused me on a regular basis.

Responding to a Maxwell email a few days later, Epstein wrote: "You have done nothing wrong and I (would) urge you to start acting like it".

Of all Epstein's victims, it's the allegations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre that has had the most fall out around the world. She is now awaiting trial in a NY prison.

Maxwell's attorneys tried to stop the documents from surfacing and asked a USA district court judge to intervene with a phone call.

The release of Maxwell's deposition had been scheduled for Monday, pending the outcome of the appeal.

They said Ms Maxwell had been promised confidentiality before being forced to answer many "personal, sensitive, and allegedly incriminatory questions", only to be sandbagged when prosecutors quoted from the deposition in her indictment.
