A new Netflix documentary about Jeffrey Epstein called “Filthy Rich” has two people in it confirming that former President Bill Clinton was on the notorious “Orgy Island” owned by Epstein. The island, actually called Little St. James, earned the nickname because of Epstein’s reported sex parties with young girls held there.

In the documentary, one of Epstein’s victims, Virginia Giuffre, explained what happened there and said that Clinton had been there.

From the Daily Beast:

“It really is orgy island, because that’s what happened there. That is what that island meant to me,” says Giuffre, while Sarah Ransome, another Epstein victim, alleges that she was raped multiple times by Epstein on the island, including three times in one day.

“Bill Clinton has been on that island,” says Steve Scully, who managed telecommunications for Epstein on Little Saint James from 1999-2005. “I saw Bill Clinton sitting with Jeffrey on the living room porch.”

Giuffre remembers seeing Clinton there as well. “I remember having a dinner with Clinton. He was there, and I never saw him do anything improper,” she explains. “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.’”

Giuffre has said this before but Scully’s claim is new.

But Clinton has continued to deny that he was on the island and when contacted, repeated that denial. “This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn’t true today, no matter how many times it’s repeated,” a Clinton spokesperson, Angel Urena, told the New York Post.

Clinton has denied being at any of Epstein’s out of state residences, but has admitted to being on his plane claiming he took “four trips.” Flight logs show he took at least 26 flights on the plane, nicknamed the ‘Lolita Express.’ Part of the discrepancy might be multiple flights within a “trip” such as to multiple places in Africa on a “trip.” But it shows an attempt to minimize the time on the plane which was more involved than “four trips” might suggest. The logs do not confirm whether he ever went to the island. On the plane, there are no logs showing that.

Epstein was found hanging in his cell last August and it’s not clear where the status of the case against anyone else involved may stand at this point, such as Ghislaine Maxwell, alleged by some to be something of a procurer for Epstein.
