The late financier Jeffrey Epstein was the subject of a long-running lawsuit, and late Wednesday, the court released dozens of documents about the case that had been sealed.

The judge explained in a December letter that she was releasing the records because many of the details contained within are already known to the public. A large portion of the first 40 documents—out of an anticipated 250—mention individuals whose identities were previously known, such as prominent friends of Epstein’s and victims who have made public statements.

The papers contain numerous mentions of prominent figures, such as Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, Alan Dershowitz, and Bill Clinton.

Having said that, it seems like the sole mention of Trump throughout the papers exonerates him of any wrongdoing.

To begin, the documents do not support the idea that Trump ever paid a visit to Epstein’s house or island. The witness also denies ever giving a “massage” to Trump:

While this appears to be good news for Trump, the same can’t be said for former President Bill Clinton.

According to the court documents, Epstein allegedly said that Bill Clinton “likes them young.”

They were submitted as part of a defamation suit that Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who accused Epstein of numerous crimes and abuses, had filed against Ghislaine Maxwell, the madam of the late sicko, in 2015. The case has since been resolved.

At the 2001 Epstein townhouse in Manhattan, another victim Johanna Sjoberg testified in a deposition taken in 2016 that the Duke of York placed his hand on her breast while she sat on his lap.

Sjoberg was also asked about Epstein’s comments on Clinton in the same deposition.

“[Epstein] said one time that Clinton likes them young, referring to girls,” she testified.

Reports surfaced in the days preceding the unsealing claiming that “John Doe 36” appeared more than fifty times in the redacted documents mentioning Clinton.

According to reports, Giuffre’s early efforts to get Clinton to testify against Maxwell and Epstein were the thought to be the source of many of the Clinton references, even though they did not intend to implicate him in any wrongdoing.

The ex-chief executive, who was seen in photos with Epstein and who often used his private plane, has maintained his innocence for a long time.

A representative for the ex-president responded by telling CNN that the former president was unaware of Epstein’s “terrible crimes” when they met, adding that “it has been nearly 20 years since Clinton last had contact with Epstein.”

Documents released on Wednesday did reveal, however, that Ghislaine Maxwell, an associate of Epstein’s, denied ever having Bill Clinton stay on Epstein’s Caribbean island.

According to what she said, the ex-president did fly on the “Lolita Express,” Epstein’s notorious private plane.

“The allegation that Clinton had a meal on Jeffrey’s island is 100 percent false,’ Maxwell said in the 2016 deposition. “I’m sure he had a meal on Jeffrey’s plane.”
