Giuffre didn't believe that any of the girls allegedly sexually abused by Maxwell were "truly willing participants".

Giuffre then said that "orgies were a constant thing that took place" on the island, but did not say specifically whether Clinton was involved.

Prosecutors had asked Nathan to block Maxwell's lawyers from publicly identifying the women unless they identified themselves as participants in the criminal case.

The document was released with others as part of unsealing in the case against Epstein's former girlfriend and alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, who has pled not guilty to charges that she recruited and groomed girls for the dead financier to sexually abuse.

Prince Andrew allegedly lobbied the USA government on Jeffrey Epstein's behalf so he would receive a "favourable" plea deal for an underage prostitution case in 2008, according to newly-released court documents.

Maxwell, a 58-year-old British socialite, pleaded not guilty earlier in July to charges stemming from her alleged role in Epstein's so-called sex trafficking ring.

The transcript shows Giuffre speaking to her lawyer Brad Edwards and a third attorney Jack Scarola, detailing her allegations of how Maxwell and Epstein had her recruit other girls to pimp out to rich and powerful men.

Another document, containing questioning of Giuffre by lawyer Jack Scarola, states that Giuffre says she once saw Clinton on Epstein's island with "two young girls" from NY.

One email, sent from Epstein's email address but written in Maxwell's voice, appeared to be a draft statement or set of talking points for Maxwell to use in defending herself. It said she had been the target of "false allegations of impropriety and offensive behaviour that I abhor and have never ever been party to".

"Ok with me. You have done nothing wrong and I woudl (sic) urge you to start acting like it". He suggested she go outside and hold her head high, "not as an (escaping) convict".

Maxwell is now awaiting trial in NY, charged earlier this month with sex trafficking of underaged girls with Epstein and perjury.

"I would appreciate it if shelley would come out and say she was your g'friend - I think she was from end 99 to 2002", Maxwell wrote to Epstein.

Maxwell is jailed awaiting trial in NY.

Though numerous documents released Thursday night contain claims that have already been reported in the shocking, years-long case, the 2011 transcript has never been published before.

Virginia Giuffre, an alleged victim of Jeffrey Epstein, described the psychological toll of his abuse in portions of a newly-released deposition from May 3, 2016.

They show that the pair corresponded in 2015, despite Maxwell's lawyers claiming in a bail appeal this month that she had no contact with her former partner in more than a decade.

"I believe we were all there for one objective, and that was to keep Jeffrey and Ghislaine happy and to do our jobs, which was giving them erotic massages and keeping them pleased sexually", she said, adding that their wealthy masters issued "indirect threats" to make sure the girls complied.
