A deposition detailing the seamy relationship between Ghislaine Maxwell and the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was released Thursday just before a court-imposed deadline, after months of wrangling by her defense lawyers to keep the sordid documents from the public eye.
The newly unsealed transcript is from Maxwell’s seven-hour deposition in April 2016 and includes hundreds of denials from the British socialite, who said she knew nothing of Epstein’s alleged abuse of underage girls.
It also includes pointed questions from Giuffre’s lawyer about her sex life, as well as her ties to former President Bill Clinton, who was pals with Epstein.
Maxwell, who has her pilot’s license, admitted that she’s flown on Epstein’s planes with Clinton before — but refused to characterize the ex-commander in chief’s relationship with the convicted pedophile as “friends.”
Many other names in the document are redacted.
At one point, Maxwell also denies keeping a “laundry basket of sex toys” at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.
The deposition was part of a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre.
