GHISLAINE Maxwell denies she was ever on Jeffrey Epstein's island with Bill Clinton – but says the former president did fly on the pedo's jet.
In the bombshell documents from Maxwell’s deposition in 2016 that were made public on Thursday, an attorney for Virginia Giuffre asked Maxwell about Epstein’s plane.
Maxwell, 58, was asked about Clinton’s alleged time flying on Epstein’s planes and if he ever visited Little St James Island, in the Virgin Islands – the private island owned by Epstein.
The former British socialite slammed Giuffre in response to the questioning from Giuffre’s attorney, Sigrid McCawley, saying: "Again, Virginia is absolutely totally lying.”
"This is the subject of defamation about Virginia and the lies she has told and one of lies she told was that President Clinton was on the island where I was present.
“Absolutely 1000 percent that is a flat out total fabrication and lie,” Maxwell said.
McCawley then asked about Clinton flying on Epstein’s planes.
“You did fly on planes, Jeffrey Epstein’s planes with President Clinton, is that correct?” McCawley asked Maxwell.
Maxwell, the alleged “pimp” to Epstein, replied: “I have flown, yes.”
McCawley asked: "Would it be fair to say that President Clinton and Jeffrey are friends?"
"I wouldn't be able to characterize it like that, no,” Maxwell went on to say.
In a deposition that was unsealed in July, Giuffre testified that she saw Clinton on Little St James Island.
She said: “I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me a favor.”
“He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”
Clinton has denied ever visited Epstein’s private island – and over the summer, a spokesperson said: "He'd not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade. Well before his terrible crimes came to light."
The unsealed deposition reveals Giuffre said that Clinton had stayed in Epstein’s home.
"Ghislaine, Emmy, and there was two young girls that I could identify. I never really knew them well anyways. It was just two girls from New York," Guiffre said.
She alleged that Clinton stayed in Epstein’s home with other women, and said she recalls Epstein telling her that the former president “owes me favors.”
Giuffre said she wasn’t sure if this was a joke.
Maxwell was arrested in July for her alleged involvement in “delivering young girls” to Epstein for years.
Her arrest came almost a year after Epstein was arrested and then killed himself in prison in mysterious circumstances.
Reacting to the release of the documents on Thursday, Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies said: "This is a long-time coming and a welcome step towards revealing the evidence of the scope and scale of the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking ring.
"The public should know today's unsealing is only a small part of the total evidence.
"As the evidence comes out, it will be clear why Ms. Maxwell and others who enabled Jeffrey Epstein are fighting so hard to keep it concealed.
"As our client Virginia Giuffre bravely asserts, they did not act alone."
Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to helping Epstein recruit and groom underage girls as young as 14 to engage in illegal sexual acts in the mid-1990s, and not guilty to perjury for having denied involvement in any such scheme when she gave her deposition under oath.
The April 2016 deposition came from a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, who has said Epstein kept her as a "sex slave" with Maxwell's assistance.
Maxwell, daughter of the late British publisher Robert Maxwell, was asked questions about her relationship with Epstein, who employed her to help run his properties, and allegations by Giuffre.
