A detailed account and personal information of individuals associated with Epstein, who was found guilty of sexual offenses involving minors, have been disclosed by request of the Miami Herald newspaper.

The name of former U.S. President Bill Clinton surfaces several times in the comprehensive compilation of documents. Johanna Sjoberg, one of the women who accused Epstein, said that while she didn't witness any direct interaction between Epstein and Clinton, Epstein boasted that "Clinton prefers the younger ones".

Former U.S. President Donald Trump's name is also featured in the documents. Years ago, Trump publicly acknowledged his acquaintance with Epstein, describing him as a "great guy" who "likes beautiful women just like I do, and many of them are younger". An employee of Epstein confirmed that Epstein and Trump were acquainted and had phone conversations.

The published documents feature a long list of renowned individuals potentially acquainted with Epstein. This includes model Naomi Campbell, illusionist David Copperfield, and esteemed British physicist and University of Cambridge professor, Stephen Hawking.

Hawking was a guest on Epstein's private island in 2006 during a conference arranged by Epstein.

"Did Stephen Hawking visit the island for pleasure? Yes, Jeffrey revelled in having intellectuals visit his island, as an appreciation of their service to humanity and, darkly, for other reasons. Did Jeffrey ever mention anything regarding Hawking's tendencies? Yes, he enjoyed watching undressed dwarfs solve complex equations on a board placed too high," the published document states.

In one email, Epstein suggests his partner should offer compensation to the family of the victims to "disprove her allegations".

"The most compelling evidence is a dinner with Clinton and a new narrative from the Virgin Islands, that Stephen Hawking participated in an orgy with minors," Epstein wrote.

Jeffrey Epstein was sentenced for sexually exploiting underage women and served 13 months in prison. He died on August 10, 2019; the official cause of death was suicide in jail. His associate Ghislaine Maxwell is currently serving a 20-year sentence for her involvement in Epstein's crimes.
