The story of Jeffrey Epstein unfolds even more.
Epstein was an American financier, worth around $1 billion, who had a high profile social circle, with big-name celebrities and politicians like Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. He’s also a convicted sex offender.
Epstein was arrested last July 2019 for charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking. He pled not guilty was denied bail and the next month was found dead by suicide.
A woman named Virginia Giuffre, who publicly accused Epstein of sex trafficking, also claims she once saw former President Bill Clinton on Epstein’s island with “two young girls” from New York, according to Newsweek. Giuffre was questioned by lawyer Jack Scarola. Giuffre told Scarola that Epstein told her that Clinton “owes him favors” (but never said exactly what they were), and that there were orgies on the regular at Epstein’s island.
A spokesperson for Clinton denied the allegation in a statement to Newsweek. The statement claims that Clinton has never been to Epstein’s private island, which is called Little St. James Island.

Back in 2008, Epstein pled guilty to a felony charge of solicitation of prostitution involving a minor. He was sentenced to 18-months in prison, served 13, and was granted work release where he was allowed to work outside of the jail six days a week. He also registered as a sex offender.
Epstein’s alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is currently behind bars for charges related to Epstein’s. Some of the victims in the case refer to Maxwell as the “recruiter,” as she was the one who allegedly got underaged girls for Epstein and “trained them.”
Maxwell was denied bail and her trial is expected to take place in summer 2021.
