We know that Epstein, who allegedly hung himself in jail awaiting trial, had a penchant for underage girls. We also know that because of his billionaire status, he attracted the attention of a lot of elites, including England's Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton. We know that his 'fixer,' Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently serving decades in prison for her role in facilitating Epstein's sexual desires, hasn't spoken publicly about their 'clients.' And we also know that many of Epstein's secrets followed him to the grave.
But now, thanks to U.S. District Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Loretta Preska, a George H. W. Bush appointee, we may be set to learn a lot more about who frequented Epstein's "Pedo Island," who some of his other high-powered clients were, and to what extent Clinton -- who traveled with Epstein a lot and was often photographed with him -- was really involved in the whole scheme.
Judge Loretta Preska on Friday ruled that the material concerning eight people should be unsealed despite one subject claiming it could ‘wrongfully harm (his) privacy and reputation.’
Among those whose names are mentioned in the documents are a British woman, Ghislaine Maxwell’s former personal assistant, who was accused of taking part in the sexual abuse of minors.
Judge Preska overrode objections from Tom Pritzker, the billionaire executive chairman of the Hyatt Hotels, and ordered material related to him be made public.
The documents are part of a defamation case brought against Maxwell by accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2016 that was later settled.
The trove of material has been released on a rolling basis after with the first set coming in 2019, two days before Epstein killed himself, after numerous requests from media organizations.
Without making any accusations, there can really only be a couple of reasons why someone who was associated with a known pedophile would want to keep records associated with said scumbag private.
According to the Daily Mail, 16 "Non-Party Does" also objected to the release of the files being made public. The first eight have already been dealt with by the New York federal court. Therefore, the latest batch is in reference to the remaining eight, who are referred to as Does 12, 28, 97, 107, 144, 147, 171, and 183.
Preska noted in her ruling that much of the "purportedly sensitive information" was made public already last year during Maxwell's trial for trafficking underage girls to Epstein. She was convicted and sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
The judge also went through dozens of documents she had ordered unsealed. While Doe 183's documents were ordered unsealed, Preska stayed their release until Nov. 28 to give time for an appeal, which is surely coming.
But while Doe 107 argued that their materials could "connect" them to Epstein and "unnecessarily invade (their) privacy," Preska disputed that and ordered those documents unsealed anyway, writing that the public's right to see them outweighed any "generalized concerns" about privacy, adding the material was "not particularly salacious."
“Certain details contained within certain documents that are not public…objecting Does have set forth a sufficient interest to preserve sealing,” the judge said.
In October, a report noted that Maxwell may be getting ready to talk in order to have her sentence reduced, which led reporter Kari Donavan to note: "Bill Clinton should be sweating bullets."
“It has long been suspected by court watchers that a notorious list of clientele for Epstein, allegedly including Clinton, would eventually emerge, and they may be right, according to investigators and lawyers who have followed the complex case," Republic Brief reported.
