House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s daughter warned Democrats to be wary of the case files of Jeffrey Epstein.
And as one of the first prominent figures have been outed in the files it appears that her concerns were well founded.
Former Democrat New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Democrat Maine Sen. George Mitchell have been credibly accused of having sex with underage girls in the files, Fox News reported.
A woman who has long claimed disgraced money man Jeffrey Epstein forced her to have sex with powerful men named two prominent Democratic politicians – former Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson – in documents unsealed Friday by federal prosecutors in New York.
Friday’s revelations came from more than 2,000 documents that were unsealed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
The papers included affidavits and depositions of key witnesses in a lawsuit the now-33-year-old woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, filed against Epstein and his associate, Ghislane Maxwell in 2015. Giuffre accused the duo of keeping her as a “sex slave” in the early 2000s when she was underage.
Giuffre claimed in a May 2016 deposition to have been trafficked to have sex with and provide erotic massages to powerful politicians, foreign leaders and well-heeled businessmen.
In ordering the documents released, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit also warned that the allegations contained within them are not necessarily proven.
Giuffre alleged in her own deposition that she was allegedly forced to have sex with Richardson, 71, Britain’s Prince Andrew, Hedge Fund manager Glenn Dubin, American scientist Marvin Minsky, “another prince,” “a large hotel chain owner,” Stephen Kauffman, and model scout Jean Luc Brunell.
In another deposition, Giuffre also reveals that she was “trafficked” to Mitchell, a former Senate Majority leader who represented Maine from 1980-95 and was later named special envoy to the Middle East by President Obama. A sworn affidavit by a former Epstein employee, Juan Alessi, also alleges Mitchell, 85, of having associated with Epstein.
“The allegation contained in the released documents is false,” Mitchells said. “I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre.”
“In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls.
“I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact,” he said.
“Governor Richardson has never even been contacted by any party regarding this lawsuit,” a spokesperson for Richardson said.
“To be clear, in Governor Richardson’s limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never saw him in the presence of young or underage girls.
“Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein’s residence in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre.”
We will see what happens but it’s a freaking mess.
