A woman testified that Jeffrey Epstein sent her to have sex while she was underage with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D) and former Sen. George Mitchell (D-Maine), allegations the two men deny.

According to court documents made public Friday, Virginia Giuffre testified in 2016 she was also sent to have sex with asset manager Glenn Dubin, modeling executive Jean Luc Brunel and the late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, expanding on past claims that she was used as a “sex slave” for Epstein from 2000 to 2002.

Though none of the men named in the documents released Friday have been charged, they are additions to a growing list of high-profile figures with alleged associations with Epstein.

In separate statements to Bloomberg, Richardson said he’d never met Giuffre, calling her allegations “completely false” and saying he’d never seen Epstein with underage girls, and Mitchell said he’d never had any contact with Giuffre and was also unaware of Epstein’s accused illicit activities.

“Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations against them in the unsealed court records and categorically reject them,” a Dubin spokesperson added in a statement to The Hill.

Giuffre first filed a suit in 2015 that Epstein began abusing her in 2000 when she was 16 years old and that she was recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell, his friend.

A judge sealed about 2,000 pages of documents when the case was settled, but an appeals court upheld its earlier ruling to unseal the pages Friday.
