Bill Clinton identified as ‘John Doe 36’ among 170 names to be revealed in Jeffrey Epstein files

0

Hundreds of documents related to late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are expected to be released this week, and among the names on the list is former President Bill Clinton.

​Mr. Clinton was one of the wealthy and powerful men in Epstein‘s orbit before the New York-based financier was busted for sex trafficking minors and died in jail. Others linked to Epstein include: Britain’s Prince Andrew, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, actor Kevin Spacey, comedian Chris Tucker and former President Donald Trump.

Mr. Clinton is identified as “John Doe 36” and is mentioned more than 50 times in the redacted filings. His name is mostly found in filings from the lawyers of Virginia Giuffre — an alleged victim of Epstein‘s sex trafficking ring — who were trying to subpoena the former president for deposition testimony about his relationship with Epstein, according to ABC News.



The former president’s name is also expected to be seen in filings related to attempts from Ms. Giuffre and Epstein‘s co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell, to get Epstein to answer questions in 2016 after he used his Fifth Amendment right to not self-incriminate during the deposition in the lawsuit.

There is no indication that the sealed documents incriminate Mr. Clinton, who was photographed several times with the disgraced financier and flew on his private jet, the “Lolita Express.” Mr. Clinton and Maxwell have insisted the ex-president never visited Epstein‘s Caribbean island, Little St. James.

U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska ruled last month that the records would be unsealed in the new year. More than 170 names are expected to be revealed after being disguised with pseudonyms John and Jane Doe.

Most of the names are already associated with Epstein in one way or another, including those who allegedly committed acts of wrongdoing, victims, those who worked with him, visited his home and used his planes. One prominent name that will be seen in the documents is Prince Andrew.

Ms. Giuffre alleged that Maxwell and Epstein forced her to have sex with multiple times with Prince Andrew. In one of the instances, Ms. Giuffre, then 17, said she was told to have sex with him at a 2001 party at Epstein‘s townhouse in Manhattan.

The British prince has denied those allegations and settled a lawsuit brought by Ms. Giuffre.

There are still some records that will remain confidential, including the names of those who were children when they were sexually abused in Epstein‘s ring, the judge ruled.

Epstein, while in prison in 2019, died while jailed and waiting for a trial on his sex trafficking charges. His death was ruled a suicide, though conspiracy theories persist that he was killed.

Maxwell is currently serving a 20-year sentence for helping Epstein recruit and sexually abuse minors.
