Ghislaine Maxwell’s deposition about a sex-trafficking operation she allegedly ran with the late Jeffrey Epstein was made public Thursday morning, as a federal court released her 2016 deposition over objections.
The transcript is more than 450 pages long, but was redacted to protect the privacy of some people it mentions.
Epstein maintained friendships with many prominent people, including former President Bill Clinton, President Donald Trump and Britain’s Prince Andrew.
The deposition was first published online by National Public Radio.
Before Maxwell pleaded not guilty to charges of aiding Epstein this year, she was sued by an Epstein accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, for defamation in 2015, after Maxwell denied Giuffre’s claims of abuse. The case was later settled.
Maxwell’s legal team had argued the deposition contains “intimate” information about her sex life and other personal matters. However, federal prosecutors claimed Maxwell may have perjured herself during the testimony.
