A trove of court documents unsealed Thursday night reveal a high profile list of people that allegedly visited the private island of now deceased and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The infamous island and Epstein’s private plane that shuffled billionaires and world famous leaders was known as the “Lolita Express,” for the allegations that underage children were abused on the island by friends of Epstein.
In the documents, Epstein’s co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now in federal custody, revealed during questioning the names of alleged participants in Epstein’s sordid sex island. She made the accusations years ago and is now awaiting trial after federal law enforcement officials apprehended her in New Hampshire, after months of evading arrest.
She allegedly would groom and select the underage girls for Epstein.
Virginia Giuffre was one of those victims, and has accused Prince Andrew of England of abusing her and raping her when she was only 17 years old after being recruited by Maxwell.
Other victims have also spoken out against Maxwell and Epstein. Those victims stories and some of the names of their abusers were disclosed in Thursday’s document dump. Maxwell faces six counts of sex trafficking minors. Her trial is scheduled for July 2021.
Many prominent figures may have visited that island and those who have been named in the documents deny the allegations. That list of famous figures includes former President Bill Clinton, former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz among many others, most of whose names have been redacted from the documents, according to victims’ allegations and interviews with Maxwell.
Dershowitz, however, has staunchly denied any such allegations, saying he did not take part in the abuse. He spoke out on Twitter Friday regarding the accusations.
“They were false then and now, as shown by her emails and manuscript that prove I never met her,” adding “He lawyers admit she was ‘wrong’ about me and others such as Al and Tipper Gore.”
The documents revealed the details of a 2011 meeting in which victim Virginia Giuffre revealed individuals who allegedly flew on Epstein’s jet and visited his private island.

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind
As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.
On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was “a display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing army” writes CNN.
The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.
The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, “The exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.”
Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.
As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.
American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports “Taliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.”
