The 2017 deposition from Epstein victim Sarah Ransome was released recently and it reveals that Ransome claims to have some of Epstein’s blackmail videos of his wealthy clients and the young girls having sex. She claimed to have made copies and spread them about and a thumb drive was given to someone to release in case something happened to her. Those videos could prove embarrassing to the rich and powerful. It could mean prison to at least some of them.
Ransome said that shortly after meeting Epstein she traveled with him to Orgy Island. She met Epstein in late 2006 after one of his female associates approached her and introduced the two of them. She also visited his apartment in New York City. Ransome claimed that she started receiving treatment from his psychiatrist.
“Jeffrey’s psychiatrist prescribed me lithium, Ritalin, and there’s a bipolar description drug that was also prescribed to me by Jeffrey Epstein’s psychiatrist. I can’t remember the exact name of that bipolar drug. But I was started off with lithium and Ritalin.”
She said a side effect of the lithium was weight gain, which was an issue for both Epstein and Giselle Maxwell. She says that Maxwell told her to keep her weight down to 115 pounds on her 5’8″ frame.
“Weight was a massive issue for Ghislaine and Jeffrey, so the lithium just didn’t work for me. I mean, I put on weight quite quickly.”
The weight gain issue came to a head while at Epstein’s Little St. James island.
“I can’t remember the specific conversation, how it went. We got into an argument about my weight, quite a heated argument. I recall it getting overheated and that I ran off and tried to swim off the island. I wanted to get as far away from Jeffrey and Ghislaine as possible.”
Epstein sent out a search party and they found her and returned her to Epstein. Ransome said that Epstein was manic over how his girls and omen looked and that he picked out and bought their clothes and makeup.
“All of the outfits — there were clothes provided on the island by Jeffrey Epstein, which were all Victoria’s Secret clothing: bikinis, nightgowns.”
During her six months with Epstein, Ransome claimed that the convicted pedophile would record videos of his associates having sex with his stable of women. She asserted that Epstein recorded the tapes as “blackmail.”
In newly unsealed emails, Ransome wrote, “When my friend had sexual intercourse with [redacted] and [redacted], sex tapes were in fact filmed on each occasion by Jeffrey.”
“Thank God she managed to get ahold of some footage of the filmed sex tapes which clearly identify the faces of [redacted] and [redacted] having sexual intercourse with her,” the email claimed. “Frustratingly enough Epstein was not seen in any of the footage but he was clever like that.”
Ransome alleged in the email that her friend sent her footage of the threesome sex act. She also alleged that she backed up copies of the tapes on USB sticks and kept them hidden in multiple European locations. Ransome asserted that she told a single individual when the secret videos were located “in case anything happens to me before the footage is released.”
“I will be more than willing to swear under oath and testify in court over these sex tapes.”
