A JEFFREY Epstein whistleblower speculates that Virginia Giuffre only settled out of “fear” from his lawyer Alan Dershowitz after “mistakenly” claiming he sexually abused her.
Maria Farmer, 52, was Epstein’s receptionist in the nineties and the first to contact the FBI about his pedophilia.

Giuffre sensationally admitted last Tuesday that she “may have made a mistake” in claiming she was forced to have sex with Dershowitz when she was underage.
She said Dershowitz was among the high-profile men she was “loaned out” to at Epstein’s command. The lawyer has repeatedly and strongly denied her allegation.
This led to suggestions that everything Giuffre says should be “questioned” and that “Prince Andrew was a fool” to pay her a reported $12million after she claimed Epstein forced her to have sex with the royal.
But Farmer claims that fellow victims know that Giuffre isn’t a liar.
She alleges that “Alan Dershowitz has done everything in his power since 2006 to defend all of his friends.
“Since 2006, we have been dealing with the wrath of that man.
“I’m deeply worried about Virginia’s safety at this time. She is an incredible woman who has faced demons.
“Dershowitz thinks he can paint his image lily white while hiding the truth in his back pocket in my opinion.
“Anyone who knows this case knows Dershowitz has been a major player the entire time. From helping Epstein get a sweetheart deal, he has been busy.
“Now I believe she is being pressured. I wasn’t at the negotiating table, yet I know Virginia has never lied!”
Dershowitz debunked pressuring Giuffre into a settlement, citing that an “experienced team of attorneys represented her”.
“Giuffre was represented by an experienced team of attorneys,” Dershowitz told The U.S Sun, adding: “She was not pressured into acknowledging that she may have made a mistake about identifying me.”
He also questioned Farmer’s knowledge of the settlement, claiming she “terminated all contact with Epstein in mid-1996” before he and Giuffre met the disgraced financier.
Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The U.S. Sun.
Farmer was recruited as Epstein’s New York receptionist in 1995 at 25 years old and claims she was taken up to Epstein’s benefactor, Victoria’s Secret founder Les Wexner’s property, in New Albany, Ohio, to be the resident live-in artist.
Whilst there, she was held hostage for three months, guarded by “sharpshooters and packs of Doberman,” before being sexually abused by Epstein and accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell when they came to visit.
Her sister Annie, 42, was also sexually abused by the vile pair at his ranch in New Mexico and was one of the four accusers against Maxwell, who was sentenced to 20 years for sex trafficking.
Farmer says that the victims of Epstein and Maxwell are abused and harassed constantly online by trolls, which has led to Farmer living as a recluse for the last 25 years.
Farmer adds: “He has done everything in his power to discredit all of the Epstein survivors since day one.
“Dershowitz is a control freak. He has called me anti-Semitic, even though I’m partially Jewish.
“Annie and I just hope Virginia is having a nice vacation with her beautiful family. We hope she doesn’t live in fear.”
