Thousands of pages of documents related to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking of young girls were released Friday, opening the floodgates on one of the biggest scandals of 2019.
“Excellent,” tweeted producer Andy Lassner. “Shine that light as bright as possible on all of it.”
The documents (x3 below), which were still being published at press time, detail years of abuse from Epstein and an alleged wide-ranging conspiracy spanning multiple countries and state, involving powerful people around the globe.
The order came from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in July, as Courthouse News reporter Adam Klasfeld reported at the time. The ruling written by Circuit Judge Jose Cabranes, determined that the release of the documents was in the public interest.
