Prince Andrew's name is missing from redacted Ghislaine Maxwell sex files

Ghislaine Maxwell attends BOBBI BROWN

Ghislaine Maxwell's deposition about a sex-trafficking operation she allegedly ran with the late Jeffrey Epstein was made public Thursday morning, as a federal court released her 2016 deposition over objections.

The bombshell document will contain a wealth of sordid details about her relationship with the late billionaire, and the young women she is accused of luring into his web.

The Maxwell deposition document is more than 400 pages.

Giuffre has said she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with his friends, including the British prince when she was 17 years old.

Lawyers for Maxwell had argued that making the deposition public could imperil her ability to get a fair trial, because jurors might hold its contents against her.

The document could be made public in a matter of days. She has pleaded not guilty.

Transcripts of the deposition were released on Thursday under the orders of US District Judge Loretta Preska.

Prosecutors allege that between 1994 and 1997, Ms Maxwell helped Epstein groom girls as young as 14.


Maxwell was asked in the interview: 'Did he tell you that he didn't have sex with her.' And she replied: 'It would be hard to have sex with someone you don't know'.

The transcript reflects hours of interviews conducted with Maxwell after Giuffre brought a 2015 defamation suit against her. Maxwell had accused Giuffre of lying when she alleged Epstein and Maxwell sexually abused and exploited her. Maxwell's attorneys have cited her ongoing criminal case as a chief reason to suppress the transcript of her deposition.

Andrew (second left) has said he became friends with Jeffrey Epstein (right) in 1999, after being introduced to him through Ghislaine Maxwell. Andrew has denied the allegations.

Epstein once counted U.S. President Donald Trump, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Britain's Prince Andrew as friends.

"I can not tell you what Jeffrey's story is", she said when asked whether "Jeffrey Epstein had a sexual preference for minors". Her trial is due to begin in July, and Maxwell faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted. They have said that they expect "one or more victims" to testify.

In an interview broadcast in December 2019, Giuffre told BBC Panorama she had been brought to London in 2001 by Epstein and taken to meet the prince, one of three occasions when she claimed to have sex with Andrew.

Maxwell has been charged with recruiting three underage girls in the 1990s for Epstein to sexually abuse and committing perjury in the depositions, though the charges don't relate to the prince.

Epstein killed himself at age 66 in August 2019 at a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges announced the previous month.
