Jeffrey Epstein 'kept a diary of his under-aged victims'

The Duke of York’s billionaire paedophile friend kept a secret journal, described as “The Holy Grail” by lawyers, which listed his alleged under-aged victims and the celebrity guests he entertained at his Florida mansion.

Jeffrey Epstein used the “black book” to log contact details of the girls that gave massages to him and his friends and those of his powerful and famous associates, such as Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
A servant at the £4 million manor in Palm Beach, where Prince Andrew enjoyed daily massages during several stays, stole the journal and initially kept it secret from investigators. He is now in prison after attempting to sell it for $50,000 (£31,000).
Epstein, 58, was accused of sex offences by more than 20 under-aged girls. They alleged that after being recruited as masseuses by aides including Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late tycoon Robert, they were seriously assaulted and then paid hundreds of dollars.
The billionaire financier, who attended The Queen's birthday party in 2000, was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008, having secured a plea bargain that prevented full criminal trials. He later settled more than a dozen multi-million dollar civil lawsuits from his alleged victims out of court.
The previously undisclosed journal, however, “detailed the full scope and the extent of Epstein's involvement with underage girls”, according to lawyers for several alleged victims.
It contained the names of girls that Epstein allegedly abused in “Michigan, California, West Palm Beach, New York, New Mexico, and Paris”, according to court papers.

It also listed extensive contact details for Epstein’s house guests, who had “no connection whatsoever” with alleged offences, including Mr Clinton, the former US President, and Mr Trump, the famous businessman.

It could not be confirmed last night whether the book contained contact details for the Duke. One lawyer for Epstein’s alleged victims said: “I would bet he is, because he is that good a friend”.

There is no suggestion that the Duke did anything wrong. However he has this week faced a string of questions about his judgment due to his association with a convicted child sex offender.

Epstein kept 21 different phone numbers for Mr Clinton, including some for his assistant and also “Clinton’s personal numbers”, the court papers state.

Alfredo Rodriguez, a servant who “saw numerous underage girls coming into Epstein’s mansion for purported ‘massages’,” took the journal and did not mention it to investigators.

“Because of the importance of the information in the journal to the civil cases, Mr Rodriguez called it ‘The Holy Grail’,” the court documents state.

He attempted to sell the book to lawyers for $50,000 (£31,000) in August 2009 - by which time Epstein had already been sentenced and released from jail.

The lawyers contacted the FBI, who sent an undercover agent to buy the book from Rodriguez. He was then arrested and charged with obstruction of justice.

Rodriguez, who said in sworn testimony that he was terrified of Miss Maxwell, also said he took the book as an “insurance policy” to prevent Epstein making him “disappear”.

He was sentenced to 18 months in prison – the same punishment Epstein received for his sex offences – in June last year. His wife, Patricia Dunn, told The Daily Telegraph that he was “sorry” for his error.

Dave Lee Brannon, an Assistant Public Defender who represented Rodriguez, said: “If this book had been produced when requested, Mr Epstein’s sentence may have been significantly different.”

Details of the journal emerged in a lawsuit brought in Florida by Epstein against Brad Edwards, a lawyer representing several alleged victims.

Epstein alleges Edwards was linked to a "Ponzi scheme" run by a colleague, which lured investors by falsely claiming Epstein had agreed to settle sex-offence lawsuits for hundreds of millions of dollars.

Edwards rejects the allegation, which has already been dismissed by the Florida Bar.




Commentary by the Ottawa Mens Centre

Absolute Power corrupts absolutely and its often those like Judges who are in absolute Power who abuse their power and abuse victims of abuse the most.


While the allegations concerning Prince Andrew at first appeared to be uncorroborated, it appears that the evidence we read is only the tip of the ice-berg and has all the hallmarks of a story that could and most probably will, have more evidence of similar allegations coming to light in the future.

The danger is that when it looks this bad, and probably is, that there becomes a trial by media and he could and probably will be found guilty in the court of public opinion.

The odds of these allegations reaching trial may well make the court of public opinion the only means of deterrent to similar cases of abuses by those with absolute Power.


The allegations while extremely serious, and disturbing, also reveal that there is a large amount of evidence to disprove the allegations. That is, Prince Andrew will probably have a large amount of evidence that for example might show that he was NOT at the places and times alleged.

What will be difficult for Prince Andrew and the public to avoid considering are the photographs which will have some explaining to do which of course applies that reverse onus if Prince Andrew is to be able to beat this story in the medial trial.

When it comes to Abusers of Absolute Power, spare a thought for the Victims of Ottawa CAS Lawyer Marguerite Lewis who personally fabricates allegations of admissions of being a pedophile before judges who were former CAS lawyers like the DisHonorable Timothy Minnema who turns a blind eye to flagrant fabrications of evidence and then Rubber Stamps Child Abuse by the CAS which makes Timothy Minnema one of the worlds greatest child abusers.

This is the sort of creep who will never ever face a court for his criminal deeds and he will do the world a favour if he "retires" as did the Corrupt DisHonourable Monique Metivier who "retired" to avoid a Judicial council investigation.
