Former President Bill Clinton was among those who visited the private island of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and was there along with "two young girls," according to court documents released late Thursday.
The data include records of a 2011 meeting between Virginia Giuffre, who accused Epstein of abusing her, and her lawyers. In the meeting, Giuffre talked about people in Epstein's circles, including those who she said either flew on his private Boeing 727 or stayed on his island.
Jack Scarola, one of Giuffre's lawyers, asked her if she remembered Epstein telling her that Clinton owed him "favors."
"Yes I do," she responded, according to the documents. "It was a laugh, though. He would laugh it off. You know, I remember asking Jeffrey [a] 'What's Bill Clinton doing here?' kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes me a favor.' He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn't know if he was serious. It was just a joke."
Giuffre also said that the former president stayed at the island, although she never saw Clinton behave inappropriately.
A spokesperson for Clinton denied similar claims made in the Netflix documentary "Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich." Clinton's office last year issued a statement saying that the former president had traveled on Epstein's private plane and briefly visited his New York City apartment, but was always accompanied by Secret Service and staff.
