Netflix’s new docuseries Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich explores the late pedophile and intercourse trafficker’s ties to a few of his well-known associates, together with President Donald Trump and Prince Andrew. But as The Daily Beast factors out, the doc additionally consists of allegations that former President Bill Clinton visited Epstein’s non-public island within the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Clinton has admitted to flying on Epstein’s non-public jet, however he denies ever spending time at any of Epstein’s out-of-state properties. “He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little Saint James island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida,” Clinton’s press secretary mentioned in a press release.
However, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich options individuals who keep in mind seeing the previous president at Little Saint James, dubbed “Pedophile Island.” “Bill Clinton has been on that island,” says Steve Scully, who managed telecommunications for Epstein on Little Saint James from 1999 to 2005. “I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch.”
Epstein sufferer Virginia Giuffre remembers seeing Clinton on the island as nicely, however she clarifies that she by no means noticed him doing something scandalous. “I remember having a dinner with Clinton. He was there, and I never saw him do anything improper,” she says. “I wish, you know, he would just come clean about, like, ‘Yeah, I was there. So what? Who cares? I didn’t see anything going on.’”
It’s value noting that some individuals are taking the docuseries with a grain of salt, given the truth that it was co-produced by James Patterson, who co-authored the 2016 e-book model of Filthy Rich with John Connolly and Tim Malloy. Patterson and Clinton have labored collectively previously (they co-wrote The President Is Missing in 2018), and so they have a brand new novel that they wrote collectively — The President’s Daughter — scheduled to be launched in June of 2021.
so maintain on, this documentary, based mostly on a e-book authored by James Patterson, has revelations about considered one of his co-authors (with whom he’s “writing” one other e-book to be printed subsequent 12 months.) Just need to get that straight. OK. https://t.co/uFFhnvnJWT
