Alleged Trafficking Victim Names Two Democrats in Jeffrey Epstein Case

Britain's monarch smiled beside her 59-year-old son as they were driven to church in Scotland, with the prince grinning widely despite being newly accused of groping a woman's breast at Epstein's mansion.

On Friday a federal appeals court unsealed almost 2,000 pages of records related to a civil case against a victim and the woman who allegedly procurred teens for Epstein.

"She's still here. Ghislaine Maxwell knows everything Epstein", actress Mia Farrow tweeted on Saturday.

In 2015, Ms Maxwell was sued by Virginia Giuffre, an alleged victim of Epstein who also alleged she was forced into a sexual encounter with Andrew when she was 17.

In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to procuring for prostitution girls aged under 18 and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

The Duke and Duchess of York - who divorced in 1996 - were staying together at the Queen's residence in Scotland when it emerged yesterday the disgraced wealthy financier was found unresponsive in his NY jail cell while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking.

A number of allegations were released in the cache of legal papers hours before reports said Epstein killed himself on Saturday.

She claims, as the then 21-Year old, together with Giuffre, 2001 in Epstein's apartment in NY of Prince Andrew " groped been: "there are also several eye-witnesses".

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "This relates to proceedings in the United States, to which The Duke Of York is not a party". Buckingham Palace strongly denied the allegation in 2015, saying in a statement that "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors" by the prince was "categorically untrue".

Crusius's relatives have decried "the destruction Patrick did" and condemned the ideas described in the online statement. The suspected gunman has reportedly waived his right to an attorney and is freely sharing his confession with police.

"There's a whole bunch of them - it's just hard for me to remember", Giuffre said, according to the documents. "And so Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put (a) puppet, the puppet on her lap".

In her testimony, she said Andrew and Virginia Giuffre were sat on a couch with a puppet resembling Prince Andrew on Giuffre's lap.

She said she was reading a book on massage therapy one day when she was approached by Maxwell, who noticed the book and told her she knew someone seeking a traveling masseuse.

The Duke of York's eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, also joined them in what is being taken as a show of solidarity for the scandal-hit royal. Giuffre claimed Epstein and Maxwell kept her as a "sex slave" in the early 2000s, whilst she was underage.

The legal papers also contain denials from other parties who have been caught up in the case, including Donald Trump, who was in a photograph with Epstein in the 1990s.

"But I can say, without hesitation, that I am deeply pleased that federal prosecutors in NY have arrested Jeffrey Epstein and are on the case in a serious way".

"I've known Jeff for 15 years", Trump told NY magazine in 2002. "He'd laugh and tell Jeffrey, 'You've got the life'". Deposition records often remain in the custody of the lawyers, and the media do not have a right of access until a judge decides otherwise.

A partial transcript of a September 2016 deposition in a lawsuit was included in hundreds of pages of documents placed in a public file by a federal appeals court in NY.
