Claim that Prince Andrew campaigned for Epstein's plea to be a "direct falsehood."


The allegation that Prince Andrew campaigned with the US government for a pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein, who had been imprisoned for just 18 months in 2008, to get a treasure plea deal is a "direct falsehood," emphasizes a royal Insider.

The allegation is contained in newly unsealed court documents, including a motion by lawyers for two anonymous Epstein accusers who attempted to obtain documents that they alleged showed the Duke's lobbying.

The application is part of a 2015 defamation case against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's alleged woman, which has been kept under lock and key until released after being arrested for sex trafficking.

However, an unnamed prince's friend today described the allegation as "a direct falsehood, no if, no but" and added that the US Court of Appeals last year said the allegation should be handled with "extreme caution".

Prince Andrew "pleaded with the US government for a favorable plea for pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein, with whom he was only detained for 13 months in 2009," new documents say (Andrew and Epstein prosecutors Virginia Roberts and Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001).

The couple's lawyers, Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, wrote: “They are looking for documents on Epstein's lobbying to convince the government to make a favorable objection, including the efforts of Prince Andrew and the former Harvard law on his behalf Professor Alan Dershowitz.

"They have claimed that these materials are needed to substantiate their claims that Epstein delayed his performance after signing the non-law enforcement agreement while using his significant social and political connections to plead with the Justice Department for a more favorable plea to deploy. "

The newly published documents also include a transcript of a deposit from Epstein's main suspect, Virginia Roberts, in which she also talks about the Prince's involvement in Epstein's activities.

When asked by her own lawyers in 2011 whether Andrew had “relevant information” in the case, she replied, “Yes, he would know a lot about the truth.

"I don't know how much he can help you, but since he himself is in a lot of trouble these days, I think he could, so I think he could be valuable."

Prince Andrew claims he distanced himself from Epstein's conviction and met with him once in New York in 2010 to formally end the relationship.

Roberts separately claims that she has had sex with Prince Andrew three times, including one in a Caribbean jurisdiction where she was a minor after being traded by Epstein and Maxwell.

The documents are part of a 2015 defamation lawsuit that Epstein's main suspect Virginia Roberts (pictured against Maxwell) was sealed after it was settled out of court

She was pictured next to Andrew in Maxwell's London townhouse in 2001, hours after she claims to have met Andrew for the first time at the Tramp nightclub in Mayfair.

"MAXWELL undressed me and took part in continuous orgies."

Ghislaine Maxwell undressed Virginia Roberts and asked her to lick Jeffrey Epstein's nipples when she first met when she was 15. This has resulted in newly sealed court documents.

Roberts explained the torture in a testimony she gave to lawyers in 2011. This was part of a 2015 libel case against Maxwell that has so far been kept secret.

Roberts said Maxwell also stripped naked, instructed her to have oral sex with Epstein while he stroked her, and then told her to "sexually sit on him".

In a separate testimony, Roberts also reported “continuous” orgies in which Maxwell was involved with underage girls on Epstein's private Caribbean island.

Roberts said that girls were routinely flown in on a private jet to take part in sex sessions that took place across the island.

When asked about women with whom Maxwell had personal sexual contact, she replied, "There are so many, I don't know where to start."

There were blondes, there were brunettes, there were redheads. They were all beautiful girls. I would say the age was between 15 and 21 years, ”she added.

Roberts claims the couple had sex that night too – an act that made them feel so dirty and ashamed that they showered right after.

Andrew, once a close friend of Epstein and Maxwell, has vigorously denied any wrongdoing.

Prince Andrew is also under pressure to speak to the FBI to aid the investigation into Epstein and his inner circle, including Maxwell.

Attorney General Bill Barr earlier this year said Andrew needed to speak to the FBI and his team was "definitely" going to interview him.

He said: “The department wants to speak to Prince Andrew. That is why the southern district has made efforts to communicate with it. We have made it clear that we want to communicate with him. & # 39;

A source near Prince Andrew previously told DailyMail.com that he was "confused" by the ongoing claims that he had not cooperated and that his team had tried to contact prosecutors several times.

Andrew's team of lawyers claims they have become "spooky" despite repeated offers of help from US prosecutors.

Elsewhere in Robert's testimony, she claims that Maxwell undressed her and tshe old to lick Jeffrey Epstein's nipples during her first meeting when she was 15.

Maxwell took part in sex sessions with them at a pool near the beach, in small huts, and in Epstein's cabana, she claimed.

"There is an opportunity," she said. "Models were flown in – I think they were models. Orgies took place outside by the pool."

CLINTON, GORE, CAMPBELL, KLUM: EPSTEINS & # 39; GUESTS & # 39; DISCOVERED

According to Virginia Roberts, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum were among the high profile guests entertained by Jeffrey Epstein.

Clinton visited Little St James after his presidency ended because he "owed Epstein a favor," Roberts told investigators in newly unsealed statements. Clinton has denied ever visiting the island.

"He never told me what kind of favor you are. I never knew. I didn't know if he was serious, ”she said.

The former president lived in Epstein's private villa, where "orgies were a constant thing," she claims.

Vice President Gore was also a guest on Epstein's plane, the Lolita Express, as did models Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum, Roberts said.

Orgies also took place in a jet, she claims. There is no indication that the persons mentioned were involved in orgies.

"There would be sexual behavior, there would be foreplay, there would be a bed in it, so we could basically re-enact what was happening in the house," she said.

"It started with massaging or we started with foreplay, sometimes it led to orgies."

The women – "beautiful, tall, some blonde, some sand brown" – did not speak English and spoke in a European language that Roberts suspected was Russia or Czech.

She described the sex session and added, "Ghislaine, myself, Jeffrey, another girl in this blue outdoors – I don't know what you want to call it. Cabana that … only one bed could fit. & # 39;

Roberts also claims that she was dragged to Europe during the removal to have sex with powerful men, including British Prince Andrew and lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

She said Maxwell and Epstein kept reminding her how powerful their friends were so that she wouldn't betray them.

“Jeffrey did a lot more of it than she did. But she definitely pointed out that we shouldn't cross borders with them, ”she said.

When describing her first meeting with Epstein, she said: “In the first hour it was actually a real massage, maybe not an hour, maybe 40 minutes or so.

Then he turned on the other side to expose himself completely.

Then Ghislaine told me that she wanted me to take off my clothes and started taking off my shirt and skirt, my white Mar-A-Lago uniform. She also took off her shirt and undressed, so I was only wearing my underwear and she was completely naked …

"During all of this I'm like," What's going on, how do I behave, what do I say. "I was so afraid, not afraid or afraid for my life, but I wasn't sure how it all started and wanted to get a job. I was so afraid to think about it, upset and disappoint it …

I was expected to lick (Epstein's) nipples, be instructed by (Epstein) how to do it, and give him oral sex while he wanted to stroke me, and in the end Ghislaine told me to take care of her Put a tip and spread me sexually …

"When we were done, we went into the room and showered and Jeffrey told me to wash him up and down …"

Also included in the tranche of unsealed documents are flight logs from Epstein's private jets, police logs in Palm Beach, Florida, where Epstein was at home, and the email exchange between Maxwell and Epstein himself.

At such an exchange in January 2015, Maxwell Epstein asks if & # 39; Shelley & # 39; – probably one of Epstein's accusers – could publicly declare that she was his girlfriend.

Court files relating to a 2015 civil law libel case against Maxwell included an email from Epstein to Maxwell in January 2015, insisting she "did nothing wrong".

In response, Epstein writes: “You have not done anything wrong, and I would urge you to do so.

& # 39; Go outside, head up, not as an esacping (sic) convict. go to parties. deal with it, ”he added.

"YOU ARE INNOCENT, ACT LIKE IT," said EPSTEIN MAXWELL

Newly unsealed court documents reveal that Jeffrey Epstein told Ghislaine Maxwell that she had "done nothing wrong" and "acted this way" after being sued by Virginia Roberts in 2015.

Dozens of documents related to the Maxwell civil defamation lawsuit were released publicly on Thursday hours after a district judge refused her last attempt to keep her sealed.

Among the court files, in January 2015, there was an email exchange between the two, where Epstein advised her to continue as normal, and insisted that she didn't have to worry.

"You have done nothing wrong and I would urge you to do this," wrote the billionaire pedophile.

& # 39; go out, head up, not as an esacping (sic) convict. go to parties. deal with it, ”he added.

The email exchange seems to confirm that Maxwell lied on bail during a trial that she said she hadn't spoken to Epstein in over a decade.

Days earlier, Epstein had sent Maxwell an email that appeared to be a legal declaration of her innocence, as if it had been written by her.

“Ever since JE was charged with attracting a prostitute in 2007, I've been the target of downright lies, innuendo, defamation, defamation, and violent gossip and harassment. Headlines that consist of quotations that I never gave, statements that I never made, ”it says.

"I've never been involved in criminal activities related to JE."

The statement also alleged that Maxwell was "in a very long-term relationship with another man" when Epstein was sentenced.

"While I was friends with him until his request, I have had limited contact since then," it continues.

Roberts testified to the investigators after filing a lawsuit against Maxwell in 2015 and accused the British celebrity of defamation after branding her as a "liar."

Maxwell eventually closed the lawsuit out of court for an undisclosed sum, even though there were millions, and the documents were sealed so that they could not be published.

But judge Loretta Preska ordered parts of the papers to be unsealed after Maxwell's arrest earlier this month for sex crimes.

She is also charged with perjury for allegedly taking an oath during a seven-hour deposit she made during the lawsuit.

On Thursday, Maxwell filed an emergency application with the Federal Appeals Court in Manhattan to block the release of this deposit along with another document.

Maxwell lawyers said that posting their deposit could make it "difficult if not impossible" to find an impartial jury for their criminal case.

It was expected that the two statements and materials citing or disclosing the information contained therein would remain sealed at least until Monday, depending on the decision of the court of appeal.

Materials included in Preska's July 23 order include flight logs from Epstein's private jets; and police reports from Palm Beach, Florida, where Epstein had a home, among other things.

58-year-old Maxwell pleaded not guilty of helping Epstein from 1994 to 1997 to recruit and ultimately abuse three girls, and of perjuring himself by denying their participation under oath.

She was arrested on July 2 and put in a Brooklyn prison after a judge called her flight risk. Maxwell's trial is scheduled for next July.

Epstein was found hanged in a Manhattan prison last August at the age of 66 while waiting for the sex trafficking trial in Manhattan and Florida from 2002 to 2005 to abuse women and girls. Nor had he pleaded guilty.

Maxwell has denied the allegations against her. Prince Andrew has contested earlier claims against him. His representatives were asked to comment on the new allegations.
