Trailer for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich

A second person has claimed Bill Clinton visited the late Jeffrey Epstein’s island in a new Netflix documentary, but the former president again denied these allegations.

Netflix’s Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, a four-part docuseries released on Wednesday, includes an interview from a longtime tech worker on the Caribbean island who claimed he once saw Clinton at Epstein’s villa home.

There was no one else with the pair, the worker Steve Scully, 70, said about the sighting.

Mr Scully told the docuseries he also saw other “important people” coming and going from the villa at different points.

The villa is where Epstein, a convicted sex offender, allegedly held sex parties with others that included underage girls, according to The Sun. The location is also the centre of where people say they saw Mr Clinton while he was friends with Epstein.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who has claimed she became Epstein’s “sex slave” at the age of 17, previously said she also saw Mr Clinton on the island, but said he never behaved inappropriately.

She accused Epstein and Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth II’s second son, of forcing her into an orgy with nine underage girls, according to 2015 court documents.

A Clinton spokesperson said this week that any stories connecting the former president with Epstein’s island, nicknamed “orgy island”, are untrue.

“This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn’t true today, no matter how many times it’s repeated,” spokesman Angel Urena told the New York Post.

After Epstein was busted in July 2019, Mr Clinton insisted he knew nothing about the crimes against his former friend, but he did confess to riding on the financier’s private jet four times.

In a statement, a Clinton spokesperson previously said that “he has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”

Prince Andrew has also denied claims he knew about or participated in Epstein’s paedophile behaviour.

Epstein faced federal charges of sexual trafficking of minors from Florida to New York. He died by suicide in federal prison while awaiting trial, the coroner’s office determined.

A federal judge dropped the charges against Epstein as his death eliminated the possibility of pursuing criminal charges.
