Former president Donald Trump allegedly engaged in sexual relations with a woman at the Manhattan mansion of Jeffrey Epstein.
The financier allegedly recorded Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and Richard Branson on a sex recording, according to a victim who subsequently recanted the allegations.
Sarah Ransome allegedly made the allegations to a journalist; on Monday, unsealed court documents revealed the details.
The documents were included in a filing where attorneys for law professor Alan Dershowitz attempted to depict Ransome as a fraud who made irrational claims and contradicted herself.
Ransome later testified in federal court as a victim impact statement during the sentencing of Epstein co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, in which she detailed her experience of being trafficked by the two individuals.
According to court documents, Ransome stated in an undated email published on Monday that a friend had described Trump’s sexual tendencies and claimed the woman had regular intercourse with the former president at Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse.
Ransome claimed in another undated email that her acquaintance had sexual relations with billionaire Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew, and that Epstein had videotaped the encounters at his mansion.
The records indicate that Ransome subsequently retracted the accusation in an email to journalist Maureen Callahan.
Ransome informed The New Yorker in 2019 that the recordings were fabricated.
