After some Jeffrey Epstein-related documents were unsealed on Wednesday, a new batch of documents was unsealed on Thursday, including an email — which appears to be from Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre — that seems to claim former President Bill Clinton “threatened” Vanity Fair not to do sex-trafficking pieces regarding Epstein.
“When i was doing some research into VF yesterday, 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-trafficing articles about his good friend J.E.,” the email reads. While the email’s “From” line indicates that it is from “Virginia Giuffre,” the note appears to be signed “xoxoxoxo Jenna.”
Former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter told the Telegraph, “This categorically did not happen.”
The unsealed documents stem from a 2015 lawsuit lodged by Giuffre, which Giuffre and Ghislaine Maxwell settled in 2017, according to CNN. The outlet noted that Maxwell was found guilty of sex trafficking in 2021 but that her attorneys had said in a statement, “She has consistently and vehemently maintained her innocence.”
Epstein died in jail in 2019 in what was ruled a suicide. He had been facing sex-trafficking charges.
Among the materials unsealed on Wednesday was a 2016 deposition in which Epstein accuser Johanna Sjoberg had been asked whether Epstein ever spoke to her about Bill Clinton. “He said one time that Clinton likes them young, referring to girls,” Sjoberg responded.
A Clinton spokesperson claimed in a 2019 statement that the former president “knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York.”
