Jeffrey Epstein had a number of rich and powerful friends in his life thanks to his business dealings and years of networking, before he was outed as a paedophile in 2006.
One of which was President Bill Clinton, who has been seen in several photos with the business heavyweight over the years as they interacted at dinners, fundraisers and events.
New documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, claims Clinton even spent time at Epstein’s island, Little Saint James – something the politician has always furiously denied.
Clinton has always denied any and all knowledge of Epstein’s secret sex trafficking ring, which was finally fully brought out to the open in 2019 – months before Epstein supposedly died by suicide in prison.
Here’s everything that we currently know about Clinton’s friendship with Epstein.

What does Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich claim about Bill Clinton?
In the new Netflix documentary, a maintenance worker at Little Saint James – Epstein’s private island – claimed Bill Clinton was one of the many guests he saw on the island.
Steve Scully, who dealt with the internet and phone lines of Epstein’s main residence, reeled off a list of names and famous guests.
‘Sometimes there were other people on the island that were important people. I saw Alan Dershowitz [Epstein’s attorney] on the island, that was more of a business meeting.
‘Another time I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch area, which was Jeffrey’s favourite spot.’
‘I saw no other guests there at that time at all,’ he added. ‘I just thought “hey, wow. Jeffrey’s sitting with Bill Clinton.’

What has Bill Clinton said about being on Epstein Island?
Bill Clinton has always adamantly denied ever going to Epstein’s Virgin Island’s residence.
Angel Ureña, a spokesman for Clinton, said of the new documentary claims: ‘This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn’t true today, no matter how many times it’s repeated.’
However, it has been acknowledged that he has been aboard Epstein’s private plane – nicknamed the Lolita Express – on a number of occasions.
On one occasion, Clinton, Epstein, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker flew to Africa together on the plane in 2002 as part of an AIDS fundraising campaign.
Chauntae Davies, one of Epstein’s alleged victims, spoke about the trip as she travelled with them as the millionaire’s ‘personal masseuse’ – and stated nothing at all happened on the trip.
In fact, she believed the treatment she got on the trip was ‘the best time of her life’ and believed her abuse at the hands of Epstein had stopped.

In the documentary she stated her abuse only continued once they’re returned home.
In a previous interview, Davies said Epstein would use his jet and the humanitarian trips to get his foot in the door and gain influence, but would go to lengths to hide his illegal activity.
