“A judge has ruled that dozens more documents about Ghislaine Maxwell’s personal affairs should be made public, including some that could reveal more about her finances and her relationship to the Clintons.
Judge Loretta Preska said that unsealing the documents would not impact Maxwell’s right to a fair trial in November as her lawyers have claimed.
Among the documents which will be made public in two weeks’ time will be Maxwell’s efforts to quash requests from Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who sued Maxwell for defamation, to obtain her financial records.
Giuffre’s lawyers demanded a vast array of documents from Maxwell including ‘funding received from the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation,’ according to court filings.
The judge also ruled that documents relating to a request from Giuffre for email accounts that Maxwell allegedly kept secret from the court should also be made public.
They could give an insight into powerful men who Maxwell knew, such and Prince Andrew of the British royal family.
(…) Giuffre’s lawyers sought Maxwell’s tax returns, balance sheets for companies Maxwell controlled and financial statements for companies she controlled among other materials.
One section reads: ‘From January 2012 to the present, produce all documents concerning any source of funding for the TarraMar Project (Maxwell’s nonprofit) or any other not-for-profit entities with which you are associated, including but not limited to, funding received from the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Foundation (a/k/a William J. Clinton Foundation, a/k/a/ the Bill, Hilary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation),and the Clinton Foundation Climate Change Initiative’.
While it is unclear if the Clintons will come up in the documents which will be made public, there is considerable back and forth and dozens of documents on this subject that will be unsealed.
Bill Clinton’s relationship with Epstein and Maxwell came under intense scrutiny when the financier was arrested in July 2019.
Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane dozens of times and photographs have shown him receiving a neck massage from Chauntae Davies, one of Epstein’s victims who worked as a flight attendant on his private jet, known as the ‘Lolita Express’.
The book ‘A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein’, by journalists Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper even claimed that Clinton and Maxwell had a secret affair.
Other documents that will be unsealed relate to a request for information from Maxwell regarding what Giuffre’s lawyers called an ‘undisclosed email account’ that she kept secret from the court in breach of an order to hand it over. (Read more: The Daily Mail, 7/01/2021) (Archive)
