In a startling revelation, newly unsealed court documents suggest that former President Bill Clinton entered the Vanity Fair newsroom and allegedly “threatened” staff to prevent the publication of sex trafficking allegations against his associate, Jeffrey Epstein. The claim surfaced in an email exchange from 2011 between Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre and Daily Mail journalist Sharon Churcher.
Giuffre expressed concerns in the email, stating, “It does concern me what they could want to write about me considering that B. Clinton walked into VF and threatened them not to write sex-trafficking articles about his good friend J.E.” This accusation adds a new layer to the ongoing scrutiny surrounding the Epstein case.
However, former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter vehemently denied the incident, stating, “This categorically did not happen,” raising questions about the authenticity of the claim.
The released documents also name Clinton as someone who “traveled with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and may have information about Ghislane Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual trafficking conduct.” A spokesperson for Clinton referred to a 2019 statement, asserting that the former president “knows nothing about the terrible crimes” Epstein pleaded guilty to and hadn’t spoken to him “in well over a decade.”
These revelations emerged alongside the second batch of court documents related to Epstein, following the initial release of more than 40 papers on Wednesday, featuring a list of prominent names linked to the late pedophile. Clinton is just one among the high-profile figures mentioned, including Prince Andrew and the late scientist Stephen Hawking.
Sources anticipate more documents to be filed, possibly on Monday, totaling 240 and naming over 170 Epstein associates, ex-employees, and victims. The documents, part of a defamation lawsuit brought by Giuffre against Epstein’s madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, in 2015, were ordered for release by Manhattan federal Judge Loretta Preska last month.
Among the shocking claims in the documents are allegations against Prince Andrew, accused of participating in an “underage orgy.” Additionally, the files include testimonies from Epstein victims, such as Johanna Sjoberg, who worked as a masseuse for the financier. Sjoberg revealed that Clinton “likes them young,” and Epstein once suggested stopping at former President Donald Trump’s Atlantic City casino.
As the details from these court documents continue to unravel, the Epstein case remains a focal point of public attention, shedding light on a network of alleged misconduct involving influential figures.
