Ureña also told Newsweek: “He'd not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade. Well before his terrible crimes came to light." He also referred to a statement Clinton gave in July 2019. "He's not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida," the statement said.
The statement from the 73-year-old’s representative came after a federal court judge unsealed thousands of documents as the case against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s “madam”, continues. Maxwell was arrested on July 2 after being charged with a series of child grooming charges. The documents were part of a lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s victims, against Maxwell.
In one of the documents, the 36-year-old accuser has claimed that once Clinton visited the American financier’s private estate in the US Virgin Islands soon after leaving the White House. Giuffre, who was a teenager when the former leader allegedly visited the island, also accused Clinton of staying at the estate with “two young girls” from New York. “I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well he owes me a favor,” Giuffre told lawyers.
She added: “He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke... He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They’re all in each other’s pockets.” Giuffre also mentioned that Clinton’s visit stood out at the island because the estate was known as a locale where “orgies were a constant thing that took place.”
Although Clinton has denied paying any visit, court documents have shown that Epstein donated to both of the ex commander-in-chief's presidential bids.
Meanwhile, another report stated how Giuffre provided intimate details about Maxwell in newly-released court documents. When the woman was asked if she remembers “any distinguishing physical features” about Maxwell, she said: “I can tell you that she had very large natural breasts. I can tell you that her pubic hair was dark brown, nearly black. I don’t remember any specific birthmarks or moles that I could point out that would be relevant.” The Epstein accuser also said that she could not remember whether the 58-year-old British socialite has any scars on her body while adding that she did not see any tattoos on her.
Other documents released this week also mentioned that Giuffre accused Maxwell of having sex with underage girls during orgies with the disgraced billionaire on his “Pedo Island”. She provided details of the trysts in which she also participated along with Maxwell and other young girls in New York, New Mexico, Florida, and France.
In addition, Giuffre has also accused Maxwell of trafficking her to Prince Andrew. The royal allegedly slept with her three times when the accuser was a teenager. The papers stated, “Maxwell’s communications with Prince Andrew, for the entire relevant period, are relevant to this litigation. Maxwell is alleged to have trafficked Ms Giuffre to Prince Andrew when Ms Giuffre was a minor. Indeed, there is photographic evidence of Prince Andrew with his arm around Virginia’s waist, standing next to Maxwell, in Maxwell’s London residence, when Virginia was a minor child."
