Jeffrey Epstein said Bill Clinton owed him ‘favours’ after president’s ‘Pedo Island’ trips with young girls, docs claim

JEFFREY Epstein said Bill Clinton owed him “favours” following trips to his Caribbean island with two young girls, court documents claim.

Prince Andrew’s sex accuser Virginia Roberts made the claim about the ex-US President while talking to her lawyers in 2011.

In the questioning by her attorney Jack Scarola, she was asked: “Do you have any recollection of Jeffrey Epstein's specifically telling you that 'Bill Clinton owes me favours?”

She said: “Yes, I do. It was a laugh though…he laughed it off and said well he owes me favours.”

“He never told me what favours they were. I never knew. He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favours. They're all in each other's pockets."

Scarola then asked if she was ever present with Epstein and Clinton on the island.

Virginia said: "Ghislaine, Emmy and there was two young girls that I could identify. It was just two girls from New York.”

Mr Clinton has always denied any wrongdoing over his relationship with Epstein, recently blasting allegations as "lies".

Hundreds of pages of documents have been released as a New York judge unsealed them as the case continues against Epstein's alleged "madam" Ghislaine Maxwell.

US District Judge Loretta Preska last week ordered the release of large sections of over 80 documents from a 2015 civil defamation lawsuit against Maxwell by Roberts, now Giuffre.

She alleges that Epstein kept her as a sex slave with help from Maxwell and they trafficked her around the world to sleep with their pals, including the Duke of York.

Prince Andrew also strongly denies any allegations against him, and claims he had no suspicions about Maxwell and Epstein during his friendship with them.


Mr Clinton has fiercely denied any ill conduct during his relationship with Epstein, and denies ever going to the so-called "Pedo Island".

His office has previously said the former President knew "nothing about the terrible crimes" committed by Epstein.

Epstein's private island Little Saint James is suspected to have been the location of much of the sexual abuse – being raided last August by the FBI.

The location became known as "pedophile island", "orgy island", or the "island of sin".

It was a high-security private oasis, claimed to have a ten person shower, underground structures, massage rooms, false doors and a mysterious temple.

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest Mr Clinton is in anyway linked to the underage sex investigation.


Steve Scully, now 70, who maintained the phones and internet on the island, claimed in Netflix documentary Filthy Rich that he saw Mr Clinton with Epstein on Little Saint James.

He alleges the two men were sitting in the porch area of the island's villa – there were no other guests around at the time.

Mr Scully said: "You tell yourself that you didn't know for sure and you never really saw anything, but that's all just rationalization.

"Jeffrey Epstein, he was a guy who concealed his deviance very well—but he didn't conceal it that well."

The unsealing of the bombshell court documents came as:

  • Epstein's former mentor estimated the late financier had a worth of around $100bn
  • Maxwell's legal team tried and failed to delay the release of the court docs
  • The trove of files revealed startling allegations, including that Epstein tried to guide Maxwell in how to respond to sordid claims

Clinton's office have previously said he never went to Little Saint James, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.

They have said Clinton had not spoken to Epstein for "well over a decade" at the time of his suicide last August.

President Donald Trump – who also has links to Epstein, but is not suggested of any wrongdoing – has previously cast doubt over his predecessor's claims he hadn't visited Little Saint James.

Speaking in August 2019, the President said: "The question you have to ask is, did Bill Clinton go to the island?"

Mr Clinton's office have admitted he took four trips on Epstein’s private plane – dubbed the Lolita Express – as he took one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa.

However, logs obtained by Fox News appear to show Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein's Boeing 727 from 2001 to 2003.

His office has not directly responded to this claim.

Mr Clinton was also pictured posing side-by-side with Maxwell as the pair boarded the notorious private jet in a never-before-seen picture revealed by The Sun.

Other images show him with his arm around Epstein's personal masseuse and sex slave Chauntae Davies, while in another he is seen playing cards and chomping on a cigar aboard the jet.

Speaking in January, Ms Davies, now 40, said: "It’s clear that Epstein was using this private jet and his wealth to get close to rich and powerful people.

“Looking back at these images now it raises a lot of questions about why Bill Clinton was using the plane and what perhaps Jeffrey may have been trying to accomplish by having him around.”

Earlier this year, Mr Clinton's spokeswoman Angel Urena responded the claims that the former President had been to "Pedo Island".

She said: "This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn't true today, no matter how many times it's repeated."

Elsewhere in the new trove of unsealed docs, Giuffre claims she saw Maxwell engaging in "sexual relations" with girls as young as 15.

It also includes an email sent by Epstein to Maxwell in 2015, urging her to "go to parties" as she has done "nothing wrong".

Maxwell faces almost a year in prison as she was denied bail while facing trial over he links to Epstein.

She has pleaded not guilty, and her lawyers have accused the victims of trying to turn her into a scapegoat since the death of Epstein.

Maxwell is accused of being Epstein's "pimp" or "madam" who would procure girls for him to abuse – with victims claiming they would be duped as she claimed she was recruiting models of masseurs.

Both were regulars  in high society – being pictured with numerous celebrities at parties and functions – as they rubbed shoulders with the world's elite.

The Sun Online has contacted Bill Clinton's reps for further comment.
