This afternoon.

Documents set to be unsealed today relate to a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against [Ghislaine] Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, who has accused Epstein of keeping her as a “sex slave” with Maxwell’s assistance.

US District Judge Loretta Preska yesterday ordered that a transcript of Maxwell’s testimony and other documents relating to her close relationship with Epstein be released by 1pm GMT today.

The judge ignored claims by Maxwell’s lawyers that releasing the documents would violate Maxwell’s constitutional right against self-incrimination.

More as we get it.

Former US president Bill Clinton in Dublin in 2018

Last night/this morning.

Documents about dealings between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein were publicly released.

Virginia Giuffre, who  accused Epstein of sex trafficking, said that she once saw former US President Bill Clinton on Epstein’s island with “two young girls” from New York.

Via Newsweek:

In the questioning by lawyer Jack Scarola, Guiffre was asked, “Do you have any recollection of Jeffrey Epstein’s specifically telling you that ‘Bill Clinton owes me favors?'”

“Yes, I do,” Guiffre answered. “It was a laugh though. He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here [on Epstein’s island] kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me favors.”

“He never told me what favors they were,” Guiffre continued. “I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke… He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They’re all in each other’s pockets.”

Shortly thereafter, Scarola asked her “Were sexual orgies a regular occurrence on the island at Jeffrey’s house?” Guiffre responded, “Yes.”

Scarola then asked if she was ever present with Epstein and Clinton on the island.

“Ghislane, Emmy [another girl who was allegedly a regular at Epstein’s house], and there was 2 young girls that I could identify. I never really knew them well anyways. It was just 2 girls from New York,” Guiffre answered, and said they were all staying in Epstein’s house on the island.

Oh.

Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Boom!

This afternoon.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and heiress who became a confidante of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and was later accused of involvement in his alleged sexual crimes, has been arrested by the FBI, two senior law enforcement sources tell News 4 New York.

She was arrested in New Hampshire on Epstein-related charges and is expected to appear in a federal court later today, the sources say.

Spokespeople for the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan declined to comment.

Although it aired afterwards, Giuffre was interviewed for Panorama before Prince Andrew’s Newsnight episode was recorded. Perhaps that’s for the best; now she must be taken seriously.

The lasting impression of Giuffre was her immense bravery in facing such towering institutions alone. The sheer strength she possesses is incredible. Forget Prince Andrew; when the dust settles on this, she’s the one who deserves to be remembered.

Jeffrey Epstein

Jonathan L. Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, has questioned the broken hyoid bone and circumstances around Epstein’s death.

Mr Arden told The Washington Post: “If, hypothetically, the hyoid bone is broken, that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not exclude suicidal hanging.”

He added the broken bone could lead to pathologists conducted a more extensive investigation.

Meanwhile…

Numerous studies were also cited by the paper that found hyoid bone breaks were detected in a minority of suicidal hangings. One such study conducted from 2010 to 2013 that looked at suicidal hangings in India found that hyoid damage was present in just 16 of 264 cases, or 6 percent…

CBS News has learned that the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell. Guards attempted to revive him while saying “breathe, Epstein, breathe.”

Congress is the latest to start investigating Epstein’s apparent suicide over the weekend, with new reports raising questions about the federal jail where he was being held. One of Epstein’s guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center on the night he died was reportedly not a regular corrections officer.

Jeffrey Epstein kept “meticulously detailed” diaries of his friendships which could come back to haunt his powerful pals, reports claim.

The billionaire paedo, who died from an apparent suicide on Saturday, was once friends with Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

He is understood to have kept a secret diary detailing his friendships with the rich and famous as an “insurance policy”.

Meanwhile….

Meanwhile, as this tumultuous news cycle began for Andrew, he was tucked safely away at Balmoral, Queen Elizabeth’s residence in the Scottish Highlands, according to reports from The Sun, The Daily Mail and the Express. He and Ferguson presumably got word of Epstein’s suicide while at Balmoral, The Daily Mail said.

The Queen chose to sit beside the Duke of York in a car, accompanied by his daughter Princess Beatrice, on the way to church at Balmoral, Scotland, on Sunday morning. All three could be seen smiling inside the vehicle.
