READ: Ghislaine Maxwell's unsealed deposition

Depositions with Ghislaine Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend and alleged accomplice of the late Jeffrey Epstein, were unsealed on Thursday.

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered that the transcripts of interviews with Maxwell be released to the public.

The first transcript released is more than 400 pages long and contains some redactions. The interview with Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer took place in 2016.
