(Read some of Virginia’s statements from Miami Herald’s 2018 article below.)
*From Miami Herald Article in 2018
*”I was young, I was scared, I knew these people were powerful,” Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was 16 when Epstein’s ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly recruited and groomed her for sexual slavery, told the Miami Herald in 2018 as part of the newspaper’s massive investigation of Epstein’s misconduct. “I didn’t know what would happen if I said ‘no.’ I didn’t know what would happen if I reported them. That 16-year-old girl just let it happen.” . . . . .. . . . .* Giuffre had been working at Mar-a-Lago when Maxwell recruited her to be a masseuse for Epstein, and claims she was forced to have sex with his prominent associates, including attorney Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, Duke of York. (Dershowitz and Prince Andrew have both denied Giuffre’s allegations.) She said she was sent to Little Saint James, Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she alleges she participated in orgies with older men while underage.
*”Before you know it, I’m being lent out to politicians and to academics and…royalty and people that you just, you would never think, ‘How did you get into that position of power in the first place?'” Giuffre said. Read More! *(Fair Use)
Other men who she alleges abused her include former U.S. Senator George Mitchell (D-ME) who once served as Bill Clinton’s Special Envoy for Northern Ireland, Prince Andrew of Great Britain, the late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, influential financier Glenn Dubin, and modeling agency founder Jean-Luc Brunel. She also listed “another prince,” a “foreign president,” a “well-known prime minister,” and the French owner of a “large hotel chain” as unnamed men who preyed upon her. . . . .
. . . . She (Virginia) told Menninger about how she was sent as a part of Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation to Richardson, who served in the Clinton administration as energy secretary and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
“They instructed me to go to George Mitchell, Jean Luc Brunel, Bill Richardson, another prince that I don’t know his name. A guy that owns a hotel, a really large hotel chain, I can’t remember which hotel it was. Marvin Minksy,” she said.
Giuffre claims she was victimized by so many men that she could not possibly remember who they all were.
. . . Richardson was forced to return $50,000 in campaign donations from Epstein after he was convicted of sex crimes in 2007. Richardson has also been accused of illegally giving a woman $250,000 to keep quiet after being accused of sexual harassment, although a federal investigation ultimately found no wrongdoing. . . .
