The Gateway Pundit has petitioned a New York federal court to unseal the suspected client list for the alleged child sex trafficking ring run by Jeffrey Epstein and associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
Seeking to report on what the lawsuit called the “Epstein Client List,” The Gateway Pundit, a conservative news outlet, filed a motion on July 27 via lawyers to intervene in the Giuffre v. Maxwell case in the U.S. District Court for the District of New York.
In court documents, attorneys for the outlet said that 23 women testified that they were trafficked and abused by Epstein when they were under age.
Four of those women also testified that they were abused by Epstein’s one-time girlfriend Maxwell, who herself was convicted and sentenced for sex trafficking.
The names of the alleged “clients” the women were allegedly trafficked to when they were minors have never been made public, nor have any of the alleged high-profile clients been charged.
The women have testified that the alleged clients include “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders,” according to court documents.
“Yet, despite all these charges and allegations, the government has not revealed to whom, other than Epstein himself, these women (minors at the time) were trafficked.
“The world is clamoring for information as to who these world-renowned abusers are (hereinafter the ‘Epstein Client List’),” the lawyers continued.
“Perhaps Epstein and Maxwell were well-organized and kept a client list; perhaps one has been compiled by the Department of Justice or another third-party; or perhaps it may be susceptible to compilation from an inspection of extant records.”
The website’s lawyers asked the court to immediately unseal any “documents or portions of documents” that names an alleged client of Epstein who had a minor sex trafficked to them.
“The public has a right to know,” the lawyers said.
The names of prominent guests at Epstein’s island were documented in the flight logs of his private plane dubbed “Lolita Express.” A separate list of high-profile names appear in Epstein’s infamous black book, which was first published in Gawker by investigative journalist Nick Bryant.
“It is a mosaic of Epstein’s social contacts,” Bryant told Vanity Fair not long after Epstein was arrested in 2019.
The black book contains the names, phone numbers, and addresses of Hollywood celebrities, U.S. politicians, British royalty, and powerful business people who have all flown on Lolita Express.
