Bombshell new Jeffrey Epstein documents claim Bill Clinton ‘likes them young,’ as the former president and other big names once again find themselves embroiled in the appalling sex scandal. 

One May 2016 document released Wednesday night – a request for permission from the judge to take more depositions – includes detail of testimony already taken by Johanna Sjoberg, who was recruited at the age of 20 to work as a massage therapist. 

Sjoberg was recruited on a college campus, had no massage training, and said she was forced to perform sex acts on Epstein.

Sjoberg told the lawyers in 2016 that Epstein told her ‘Clinton likes them young, referring to girls.’ 

Clinton has long sought to play down his association with Epstein, but admitted traveling on his private plane. He is mentioned 50 times in the newly-released documents, according to an analysis by Axios

On Wednesday, a spokesperson for Clinton told CNN that he knew nothing of Epstein’s ‘terrible crimes’ during their friendship, adding that it has ‘been nearly 20 years since Clinton last had contact with Epstein.’

Wednesday’s documents trove saw Ghislaine Maxwell deny Clinton had ever visited Epstein’s Little St James private island in the Caribbean – although she conceded he had traveled on Epstein’s plane. 

Maxwell, who is currently serving a 20 year prison sentence for sex trafficking, was questioned under oath about her relationship with Epstein and his associates. The testimony was part of a 2015 defamation case filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre.

Other details in the trove of documents include how Epstein emailed Maxwell to insist that Stephen Hawking did not participate in an underage orgy on his Caribbean Island in 2006.

Hawking, the celebrated wheelchair-bound physicist who died in March 2018 aged 76, was among the guests at a barbecue during a conference on the island sponsored by Epstein.

Another of the documents, arguing that Maxwell should be forced to sit for further testimony, reveals that Maxwell under oath said she ‘did not recall’ being in London with Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew – despite photographs showing the three together. 

The documents also show Maxwell confirming that Bill Clinton dined on Epstein’s private jet, while traveling around the world, and denying that the former president ever visited Epstein’s Caribbean Island, Little St James. 

Maxwell, in the April 2016 deposition, is asked about her travels with Epstein and Bill Clinton – who Epstein is known to have visited several times at the White House.

‘The allegation that Clinton had a meal on Jeffrey’s island is 100 percent false,’ Maxwell said.

‘I’m sure he had a meal on Jeffrey’s plane.’

She said she did not know how many times Clinton had flown on Epstein’s plane. 

Maxwell was also asked about her relationship with Doug Band – a lawyer, who helped rebuild Clinton’s image in his post presidency following the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Band worked in Clinton’s White House Counsel’s office and served as Deputy Assistant to the President before becoming his chief advisor from 2002 to 2011.

With Band’s help, Clinton fashioned a new role for his post presidency with his Clinton Global Initiative which donated millions to good causes.

Yet Band was also with Clinton during some of his encounters with Epstein and was on the infamous 2002 trip to Africa about the pedophile’s private jet where the passengers included Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker.

Photos from the trip show Clinton getting a massage from Chauntae Davies, an Epstein victim who worked as a flight attendant on the jet, nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express’.

Afterwards Clinton called Epstein a ‘highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist with a keen sense of global markets and an in-depth knowledge of twenty-first-century science’.

Maxwell is asked if she knows Band, and replies: ‘I do’ – adding that she knew him thanks to his work with Clinton.

Asked if she ever had a relationship with Band, she replies: ‘We are talking about adult consensual relationships, it’s off the record.’

When pressed on the relationship, Maxwell says the lawyer must define the term ‘relationship’.

‘What do you mean by romantic?’ Maxwell asks. ‘I was friends with Doug but you are suggesting something more so I want to be clear what you are actually asking me.’

The lawyer, Sigrid McCawley, replies: ‘You defined it. You said you were friends with him. If that’s what you were that’s all I need to know.’ 

The long-anticipated ‘list’ of 187 previously unknown Jeffrey Epstein associates was finally revealed on Wednesday. 

The files were made public by the Southern District of New York after the deadline for appeals passed, around 6:30pm Wednesday night.

Investor Glenn Dubin is the first name to appear, in a transcript of a taped depostion with Ghislaine Maxwell where Maxwell was asked if Epstein accuser Johanna Sjoberg had ever been asked to massage Dubin.

Maxwell answered: ‘I don’t believe, I have no recollection of it.’  

Many were already linked to Epstein and some are the names of previously identified victims.  

Three people filed appeals and one has been granted – that of Jane Doe 107. Another – filed by John Doe 110 – is under review.

For years, many have speculated over who else could have been involved in Epstein and Maxwell group. While he took his secrets to the grave, she maintains she has never been involved in any sex trafficking

Doe 110 is said to have been widely associated with Epstein in the past, but filed a last minute request to stay anonymous. 

They are described in court documents as an ‘alleged Epstein affiliate’.  

The names were all redacted in a 2015 lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre against Ghislaine Maxwell. 

The case was settled in 2017 but the names remained secret until now. 

Judge Loretta Preska finally agreed to unseal the documents in December last year, ruling there was no longer a legal need to keep the names hidden. 

Some have been calling for their release for months. 

Among them is Alan Dershowitz, a former Epstein associate who says releasing the documents puts all the information into the public forum and ‘proves’ he did nothing wrong. 

Ghislaine Maxwell, who in June 2022 was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for her role in the sex trafficking ring, has ‘nothing to say’ about the files, according to her attorney, Arthur Aidala. 

Aidala however said the papers may disappoint many, who think they will reveal a conspiracy or previously-unknown names.
