Americans demanded answers about Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

Now they may finally get the truth.

And it’s all because a judge unsealed documents from a sex scandal that Bill Clinton wanted to see buried forever.

As Black Eye Politics reports:

Former President Bill Clinton, who was impeached for lying under oath about his affair with a White House intern, has faced great scrutiny for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein was facing charges of sex trafficking of underage girls when he died, allegedly from suicide.

Clinton has admitted that he took trips on Epstein’s so-called “Lolita Express” private jet but has denied going to his private Caribbean island, Little St. James, despite multiple witnesses alleging that they saw him there.

A New York federal judge ruled on Thursday to unseal court documents from Ghislaine Maxwell, an associate of Epstein, who is accused of child sex trafficking.

The documents show a further alleged connection to the Clintons.

Judge Loretta Preska ruled that releasing documents would not impact Maxwell’s having a fair trial.

“It is not the job of the Court to police press coverage,” Preska said. “Tabloid fodder doesn’t diminish the importance of materials that could reasonably affect the court’s decision on a motion.”

“The judge also ruled that documents relating to a request from [Virginia Roberts] Giuffre for email accounts that Maxwell allegedly kept secret from the court should also be made public,” the Daily Mail reported. “The documents are part of a tranche of material gradually being released by Judge Preska from the defamation case [Virginia Roberts Giuffre] filed against Maxwell in 2016 for calling her a liar.”

The documents would also show funding that Maxwell could have received from the Clinton Foundation and other Clinton charities.

“From January 2012 to the present, produce all documents concerning any source of funding for the TerraMar Project (Maxwell’s nonprofit) or any other not-for-profit entities with which you are associated, including but not limited to, funding received from the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Foundation (a/k/a William J. Clinton Foundation, a/k/a/ the Bill, Hilary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation), and the Clinton Foundation Climate Change Initiative,” the ruling notes.

Maxwell is now arguing through her legal team that because Bill Cosby was released, Maxwell too should be freed.

“The Pennsylvania Supreme Court did the right thing when it threw out Bill Cosby’s convictions because prosecutors cheated: They promised Cosby that they would not prosecute him if he would testify in the civil cases against him; based on that promise, Cosby testified and did not invoke his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. Prosecutors then broke their promise and used Cosby’s statements in those depositions to win a conviction against him,” Maxwell’s appellate lawyer, David Oscar Markus, wrote in a New York Daily News op-ed published Wednesday. “The state Supreme Court not only acquitted him but barred the prosecutors from retrying him.”
