After Jeffrey Epstein's death, prosecutors examine his inner circle


Donald Trump and his then-girlfriend Melania Knauss Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier accused of sex trafficking, was found unresponsive in his jail cell by an apparent suicide at approximately 6:30 a.m. Saturday, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.

A woman who accused Jeffrey Epstein of keeping her as a sex slave said one of the financier's associates had instructed her to have sex with at least six prominent men, according to a court filing unsealed on Friday in a civil lawsuit.

Ms Roberts claims to have had sex with Andrew on two more occasions - at Epstein's NY home and at an "orgy" on his private island in the Caribbean.

During the same deposition, Giuffre claims the paid massages often involved sex and led to a more permanent role travelling with Epstein, who had homes on a private island in the US Virgin Islands, New Mexico and NY. She has been described in court documents (pdf) a "madam" for Epstein and "procurer of underage girls".

In the manuscript, Giuffre says British socialite and heiress - and former girlfriend of Epstein's - Ghislaine Maxwell boasted about having performed a sex act on Clooney in a toilet.

Maxwell denied any misconduct in her deposition, "A very small part of my job was, from time to time, to find adult professional massage therapists for Jeffrey".

They also claim that the photograph of Andrew, Giuffre and Maxwell, included in the documents, corroborates their claims.

Epstein was taken off suicide watch at the end of July, the person said.

He previously avoided federal criminal charges in 2008 after prosecutors brokered a widely criticized deal that allowed him to plea to solicitation of prostitution from a minor and serve 13 months in jail.

Giuffre said she was sent to have sex with former US Senator George Mitchell, an allegation he has strenuously denied.

The scandal-prone Clinton, who flew on Epstein's "Lolita Express" airplane more than two dozen times-and is believed to have visited his Florida mansion and private island retreat-has been linked in the past to a number of suspicious deaths, with many online sites documenting the names. "I was told to do something by these people constantly", she testifies, explaining, "my whole life revolved around just pleasing these men".

The manuscript by Virginia Giuffre is among 2,000 items.

Attorney General William Barr warned co-conspirators in the sex trafficking case involving convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that they "should not rest easy" because the case is not over despite Epstein's death over the weekend. She later said it was a "gigantic error of judgment".

Cameron Lindsay, a former warden who ran three federal lockups, said the death represents "an unfortunate and shocking failure, if proven to be a suicide".

According to a transcript of a video deposition Giuffre gave in 2016, she disputed aspects of a 2011 story in the Daily Mail that was based on a series of interviews Giuffre had given to one of the reporters, Sharon Churcher.

President Donald Trump came under fire after he retweeted a conspiracy theory linking the Clintons and Epstein's death. A Buckingham Palace spokesperson stated: "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue", reported The Washington Post.

Two days after the wealthy financier's death in the NY jail where he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, Attorney General William Barr warned on Monday that "any co-conspirators should not rest easy".
