Epstein Files Reveal Disturbing Photos from Private Island

(RepublicanNews.org) – As the unredacted documents from a lawsuit related to financier and child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein continue to roll out, the latest disclosure included photographs from 2006 depicting young women and girls on his infamous private island. The photos also included Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s most well-known accomplice, who claimed not to have been present on the island at that time.

On Monday, Jan. 8, the file containing the photos was then ordered to be stricken from the docket by the judge overseeing the case and to be resubmitted without them. The photos showed various young girls or women on Epstein’s notorious island, Little Saint James, which is part of the US Virgin Islands. The photos also depicted Maxwell lounging, Epstein, and his friend Jean-Luc Brunel. Like Epstein in 2019, Brunel was found dead in his jail cell in 2022. The photos also allegedly show at least one of Epstein’s victims and accusers.

Judge Loretta Presak stated on Monday evening in the order that the docket will be struck due to “inadvertently disclosed images” which she said “should have been redacted.” Counsel was ordered to re-file the document at their most “practicable” convenience. Previously sealed during a 2015 lawsuit filed against Maxwell and Epstein by one of their victims, Virginia Giuffre, the photographs will now remain redacted. Giuffre’s attorneys maintain that the images are unequivocal proof that Maxwell was present on the island during a period that she swore under oath to have “hardly” been around.

The photos originated in a filing about Sarah Ransome, another Epstein accuser. Ransome was not part of the trial proceedings but provided separate testimony about the ins and outs of the “massage network.” She also testified about Maxwell, who Ransome claims was often referred to as “Mamma Bear” by victims.

The descriptions of the re-sealed photographs are the latest development in a story involving some of the most powerful people in the world, including former President Bill Clinton, whose name appears multiple times in the documented testimonies. Another recognizable is Prince Andrew, with whom Giuffre settled in 2022.

Although Epstein met his end in 2019, his accomplice Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison in June 2022.
