Epstein staffer invoked 5th Amendment dozens of times, including on Bill Clinton questions

 January 7, 2024

During a 2010 deposition, Nadia Marcinkova, an alleged accomplice and former employee of Jeffrey Epstein, invoked her Fifth Amendment rights at least 42 times, including when questioned about her potential interactions with the late financier and former President Bill Clinton.

The court documents, released by a federal court, revealed that on April 13, 2010, Marcinkova declined to answer whether she knew Clinton or Doug Band, Clinton's close associate.

The situation

When asked about witnessing improper sexual activity between Epstein and minors in the presence of Bill Clinton, Marcinkova again invoked her Fifth Amendment rights.

The deposition also included questions about other individuals such as Jean Luc Brunel, Glenn Dubin, and Alan Dershowitz, to which Marcinkova similarly pleaded the Fifth.

The documents indicated that Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre implicated Marcinkova and another former employee, Sarah Kellen, in the sex trafficking of minor girls.

Kellen, in her March 24, 2010 deposition, also utilized her Fifth Amendment rights when questioned about Dershowitz and Epstein's association with magician David Copperfield.

The documents

A separate document released on the same day contained an email from Epstein instructing someone referred to as "G Maxwell" to prompt the news media to investigate whether Clinton had ever been present and to challenge the press.

Both Clinton and Dershowitz have consistently denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's sexual crimes.

More documents, anticipated to release the names of over 150 individuals associated with or referenced in legal proceedings linked to Jeffrey Epstein and his network, are being disclosed.

Other issues

The documents, which have started to emerge, offer insight into the workings of the sex-trafficking operation. Attorney Sigrid McCawley, representing Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, highlighted the revelations showcasing the operation's mechanics and the experiences of those involved.

Giuffre's defamation lawsuit against Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell in 2015 yielded numerous documents, but privacy concerns led to some records being sealed or redacted. U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska recently ordered the release of additional materials, emphasizing the privacy of alleged minor victims.

The unsealed names include well-known figures like former presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, both mentioned in depositions with no allegations of wrongdoing against them. Clinton's spokesperson referred to a 2019 statement, affirming no contact with Epstein for over a decade.

The documents offer more information but also lead to additional questions about the relationship between Epstein and Clinton, along with various other celebrities.
