George Mitchell, the US politician widely credited with leading the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, has been named in court papers as being as a confederate of Jeffrey Epstein, and engaging in sex with an underage, 16-year old girl provided to him by Epstein.
The assault is alleged to have happened some three years after Mitchell helped broker the historic 1998 peace settlement in Northern Ireland. He was later asked by President Obama to help settle the Middle East conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
Mitchell, a former majority leader in the US Senate, was named alongside Prince Andrew and a host of well known American figures, as having been provided with the 16-year old girl by Epstein, who committed suicide yesterday in a Manhattan federal holding centre.
Epstein’s girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the late, disgraced millionaire British businessman, Robert Maxwell is alleged to have procured the girl for his sex ring.
The then teenager, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who is now in her 30’s, is currently involved in a sensational legal action seeking damages for abuse during her four year ordeal as Epstein’s sex slave. Late last week the first tranche of 2,ooo court documents filed by Giuffre were made public by a US court.
The documents implicate Mitchell and other personalities, including Prince Andrew, in the abuse of Giuffre when she was a sixteen year old working in Donald Trump’s Mar A Lago club in Florida.
She was recruited, allegedly by Ghislaine Maxwell, and spent four years sexually servicing Epstein and his powerful circle of friends before fleeing and hiding out. Mitchell was also named as an Epstein associate by another Epstein employee.
Fox News reported:
In another deposition, Giuffre also reveals that she was “trafficked” to Mitchell, a former Senate Majority leader who represented Maine from 1980-95 and was later named special envoy to the Middle East by President Obama. A sworn affidavit by a former Epstein employee, Juan Alessi, also alleges Mitchell, 85, of having associated with Epstein.
