Court documents unsealed Thursday, reveal that former President Bill Clinton was a guest on Jeffrey Epstein’s private island, according to a testimony from an Epstein accuser.
Virginia Giuffre alleges that she was 15 years old and working at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort when she was recruited by Epstein’s former girlfriend and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell. The information comes from a 2015 civil defamation lawsuit against Maxwell by Giuffre ordered released by a Manhattan judge last week. Giuffre has also accused Maxwell of abusing her and told her lawyers in a 2011 meeting that Clinton visited Epstein’s Island, along with Maxwell and “two young girls” from New York.
When asked by her lawyer Jack Scarcola if she recalled Epstein telling her than Clinton owed him “favors,” she responded, “Yes, I do.” Then continued, “It was a laugh, though. He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey [a] ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?’ kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes me a favor.’ He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”
She also added that Clinton stayed in one of Epstein’s private residences on the island, where “orgies” constantly took place. Giuffre also said that Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private plane and as well as other notable people, including Clinton’s VP Al Gore, Naomi Campbell, and Heidi Klum, who she says were all aboard with her, Epstein and Maxwell at one point or another. She said the “orgies” also frequently took place aboard the plane. “There would be sexual conduct, there would be foreplay, there was a bed in there, so we could basically reenact exactly what was happening in the house,” Giuffre said. “It would start off with massaging, or we would start off with foreplay, sometimes it would lead to, you know, orgies.”
In the Netflix documentary ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,’ an island tech worker also claims to have seen Clinton at the villa, accompanied by only Epstein. Giuffre has never alleged that Clinton engaged in any illegal sexual activity, nor have any other Epstein accusers. A spokesperson for Clinton denies that the former president ever traveled to the island.
Maxwell is currently facing six counts of sex trafficking involving minors between 1994 and 1997, which she has pleaded not guilty to. Her trial is set to begin in July 2021. Maxwell’s lawyers had filed an emergency motion Friday to stop the release of additional documents, claiming they would eliminate any chances their client has at a fair trial.
