VT: As expected, our Russian report of this story is, itself, quite redacted. The primary issue with “privacy” involves a third party and his family. That third party is Donald Trump and his family means his wife, former Slovenian model and close confidant of Jeffrey and Ghislaine, Melania Knauss.

Trump tells a different story but the New York Times reported that Epstein introduced Melania to Trump, and this was after his conviction for pedophilia. Epstein didn’t do jail time for child rape, the prosecutor was Trump associate Alexander Acosta.
One VT staffer dated Trump during his Epstein years and tells us that this was more a “one on one” relationship between Trump and Epstein and had little to do with women who were “window dressing.”
At the same time, Epstein was in a relationship with a famous Jewish billionaire from Columbus, Ohio who gave Epstein his plane, much of his money and his massive home in New York. A VT source, a lifelong associate of the Columbus billionaire, was privy to this relationship. The Columbus Jewish billionaire had a home built for Epstein next to his own, even when he married a woman.
When Epstein’s “very good friend” got married, Epstein phoned VT’s source (member of another powerful Jewish family) and cried on the phone…claiming “betrayal.”
…but there was always Donald.
“Epstein, Trump and Trump’s good friend Tom Barrack were ‘a set of nightlife Musketeers,’ author Michael Wolff wrote in his book ‘Fire and Fury.'”
“In those days, if you didn’t know Trump and you didn’t know Epstein, you were a nobody,” Harvard University Law School professor Alan Dershowitz told the Times. Dershowitz served on Epstein’s defense team when he was charged in 2006 with unlawful sex with minors.
The New York Times report recounts “an exclusive” 1992 party that took place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club. Other than the two dozen or so women flown in to provide the entertainment, the only guests were Trump and Epstein, according to George Houraney, a Florida-based businessman who arranged the party at Trump’s request.
RT: A federal judge in New York has ruled on requests for redactions filed by the US government and Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged madam of late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Some parts of her private life will now not be made public.
The portions that “concern privacy interests,” the disclosure of which “would merely serve to cater to a ‘craving for that which is sensational and impure,’” shall not be divulged to the public, she wrote in the ruling. The judge cited a similar decision in a separate civil case involving Maxwell and her alleged victims, which was taken by Judge Loretta Preska in January.
While Nathan’s ruling does not describe the content that she decided to shield, Preska said she had agreed to keep details of Maxwell’s consensual sexual relationships with adults out of public view.
The new ruling also granted several government requests to redact the parts of transcripts that may undermine the ongoing criminal investigation if made public, and those referring to third parties. In some instances this was done against the defense’s objections, as they posited that the same details were already known publicly through other means. Maxwell’s side “furnishes no evidence to that effect,” the ruling said, explaining the decision.
Maxwell, 59, is accused of recruiting and grooming girls as young as 14 to be sexually abused by Epstein. She was taken into custody last July and repeatedly denied bail on the grounds she was a flight risk. Epstein, a wealthy and well-connected financier convicted of sex offenses, died in 2019 through what was ruled a suicide in his prison cell, where he was awaiting a new trial for his alleged crimes against minors.
