Ever since he was found dead in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Complex in New York, there have been rumors that the late convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein — who had a fondness for underage girls — may have left behind some damning evidence implicating some of his more famous friends in many of the same crimes he was convicted for committing.
“Ghislaine Maxwell admitted that Jeffrey Epstein had secret recordings of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, a CBS News producer has claimed in a new book.
“The British socialite, who is awaiting trial on charges of procuring girls for Epstein to abuse in the mid-1990s, was reportedly duped by journalist Ira Rosen into confirming that the sex offender had taped his famous friends.
“Reports that Epstein had planted secret recording devices in his homes and – it was rumoured – had potentially incriminating tapes of his many powerful associates have circulated for years but have never been verified.”
Rosen said he spoke with Maxwell prior to the 2016 election and managed to get her to admit the existence of such tapes:
“In his memoir, Mr. Rosen writes that he told Ms. Maxwell: ‘I want the tapes. I know he [Epstein] was videotaping everyone.’
“Mr. Rosen claims that Ms. Maxwell ‘gave me a stern look and pointed a finger in my face. She said: ‘I am the daughter of a press baron. I know the way you people think. If you do one side, you must do the other. If you get the tapes on Trump you have to do Clinton.'”
So there are tapes of Bill Clinton, too? That’s certainly what Rosen claims he was told by Maxwell when he interviewed her.
Maxwell is currently incarcerated at the very same Manhattan jail facility where Epstein allegedly committed suicide, though there remains doubt as to whether or not he actually killed himself or was murdered while in federal custody.
None of Epstein’s supposed tapes have ever seen the light of day, leading some to speculate that they might have been confiscated and destroyed to protect powerful members of the financial and political elite such as Clinton, Trump, and Prince Andrew of the British royal family.
