He can can’t sweat, but Prince Andrew won’t be the only one feeling a little warm under the collar after Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest.
The socialite controlled almost every aspect of Jeffrey Epstein’s shady existence, from his homes and private jet to his colorful social calendar, in which he shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the most famous people in the world.
Here are some of the figures who had connections to the deceased pedophile financier and may be afraid of being dragged into the case as witnesses …
He may not be able to sweat, but Prince Andrew won’t be the only one feeling a little warm under the collar after Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest
Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein first met in the early 1990s, when the financier made large donations to both his presidential campaign and the White House refurbishment after his election.
Flight logs from Epstein’s private jet, known as the ‘Lolita Express’, suggest that the former U.S. President traveled with it at least ten times after his departure.

One was a trip to Africa when he was accompanied on board by actor Kevin Spacey, who, like Mr. Clinton, has gone through a series of allegations of sexual misconduct.
A book called A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise Of Jeffrey Epstein claims that during this period Clinton and Ghislaine Maxwell had an affair.
The book also claims that Epstein once took Mr. Clinton to an orgy on an overseas trip. The ex-president would have walked in, but immediately said “No, no, no, this is not my thing” before he left.
Even after Epstein’s arrest, Clinton continued to give and receive hospitality. The financier made a $ 25,000 donation to his foundation in 2006, and in 2010 Maxwell was invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Clinton (whose 21 appearances in Maxwell’s ‘little black book’ of contacts) has described claims of an affair as ‘a total lie’ and a spokesperson insisted that he ‘know nothing about the horrible crimes’.
The most powerful man in the world was ever proud to call himself a best friend of Epstein.
“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Great guy, ”he told a New York journalist in 2002.
“He’s a lot of fun … It is even said that he loves beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

More insight into the relationship of the couple comes from a video of the duo that was taken in Mar-a-Lago in 1992 and in which young women beckon on the dance floor.
The future president (then recently divorced) is seen grabbing the back of a female guest and saying, “Look at her, back there … She’s hot!”
Epstein responds with a smile and a nod. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Trump has recently changed his tune about his old wingman, saying last year, “I haven’t spoken to him for 15 years. I wasn’t a fan of him, I can tell you that. ‘
One of America’s most famous attorneys, who represented Trump during his recent impeachment process, led the legal “ dream team ” that negotiated an extraordinary plea for 2008, with Epstein spending 13 months in an open prison after being charged with dozens of child crimes.
The former lawyer for everyone, from OJ Simpson to Harvey Weinstein, was once again swept up in the Epstein affair in 2014 by Virginia Giuffre (formerly Roberts) – arguably the financier’s most talked-about victim.
In court cases, Giuffre claimed she was routinely “made available for sex to politically affiliated and financially powerful people,” saying that Dershowitz had abused her as a minor “not only in Florida, but also on private planes, in New York, New Mexico and the US Virgin Islands’.

At a 2018 hearing, a second alleged victim, Sarah Ransome, claimed to have been told by Maxwell to have ‘sex with third parties, including Alan Dershowitz.’
Dershowitz strongly denies any claims of impropriety. He admits to getting a massage at Epstein’s home, but says it came from an “old woman.”
The filmmaker didn’t seem to have much in common with Jeffrey Epstein, apart from the wrong end of allegations of abuse, when he agreed to attend dinner at the convicted child criminal’s home in Manhattan shortly before Christmas 2010.
His invitation to dinner was extended by Maxwell, who brought together many wonderful guests.
The main draw, however, was Prince Andrew, who, according to New York gossip columns, became lyrical about Prince William’s upcoming wedding.
“Everyone at the table, including Woody Allen, jokingly asked him for an invitation,” a report read. “But he just smiled.”
The relationship between Allen and Epstein flourished. In 2013, the duo were spotted strolling through the city’s Upper East Side, with an American newspaper reporting, “The former hedge association” hugged (Allen) and talked close to his ear “on Sunday.”

The French modeling agent made a name for itself in the 1980s, claiming to have launched the careers of Jerry Hall and Sharon Stone.
He became a buddy with Epstein in the late 1990s, grew into his best male friend, and is widely accused of using a Florida agency they co-founded called MC2 to bring dozens of young girls with model visas to America. fly.
Court documents claim that the women were “outsourced” to have sex with the pedophile and his associates.
The short-tempered supermodel – – was dragged into the Epstein affair in 2010, when court documents revealed that she had once flown in the pedophile’s private jet.
More controversy broke out in January when Virginia Giuffre used Twitter to share pictures of herself standing alongside Maxwell and Campbell at the supermodel’s 31st birthday party in St Tropez in the early 2000s.

The one-time Israeli prime minister featured prominently in Epstein’s address book.
Epstein was found to have invested in one of Barak’s business ventures in 2015. It was then revealed by the U.S. tax authorities that he had received $ 2 million in grants from a foundation that counted the disgraced financier as a trustee.
The dispute went stratospheric in July when the Mail published photos from 2016 in which Barak wore a huge coat and hat to enter the New York child criminal home. Around the same time, several young women were photographed entering the property.
Barak later confessed to meeting Epstein at least ten times, but denied ever seeing him “in the company of women or young girls.”
