Newly released documents relating to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring revealed that former President Bill Clinton threatened a prominent magazine about reporting on his association with the notorious pedophile.
In the email, Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre was discussing the sale of an infamous photo of her and British royal Prince Andrew. The disgraced royal previously settled a lawsuit with Giuffre and has been photographed with underage girls who were trafficked by Epstein.
In the email, Giuffre was discussing the sale of the now infamous photo of Prince Andrew with his hand around her waist, though she seemed apprehensive given the wide-reaching influence of Epstein and former President Clinton. The accuser went on to claim that Clinton walked into the office of Vanity Fair magazine and demanded that they stop covering the story.
“When i was doing some research into VF yesterday, it does concern me what they could want to write about me considering that B.Clinton walked into VF and threatened them not to write sex-trafficing articles about his good friend J.E,” Giuffre wrote. “Should I be asking what is this story their writing pertaining to?”

Former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has denied the claims in a statement to The Telegraph. “This categorically did not happen,” he said.
Questions have previously been raised regarding a seeming lack of interest by the magazine in allegations against Epstein in 2003. The reporter who wrote the piece, Vicky Ward, has claimed that Epstein convinced Carter not to publish the story, which included claims by two accusers.
Carter disputed the allegations in a 2022 interview with the New Yorker, stating that the magazine “did not feel she had “credible evidence that would stand up in court.”
A spokesman for Clinton did not comment on the latest release, instead pointing The Telegraph to a previous statement in which the ex-president claimed he was unaware of Epstein’s crimes. He has also denied claims made by Giuffre that he visited the sex trafficker’s infamous Caribbean island.
Clinton was also named in another batch of documents released yesterday, with one accuser stating that “Clinton likes them young, the girls.”
