Netflix just unveiled a trailer for its upcoming documentary series on Jeffrey Epstein, but not everyone is convinced about the veracity of the show after some glaring omissions were noticed in the teaser. While the trailer features shots of Donald Trump and attorney Alan Dershowitz, it does not have any reference to Bill Clinton, who has been photographed aboard the "Lolita Express," the billionaire pedophile's infamous private jet, and allegedly flown on it a number of times.

'Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich', which is set to debut May 27 on the streaming platform, is reportedly based on James Patterson’s bestseller 'Filthy Rich', which was co-written with John Connolly and Tim Malloy. Patterson is also responsible for bestsellers like 'Along Came a Spider', 'Alex Cross' and 'The President Is Missing', the latter of which was co-written with Clinton. Clinton and Patterson made a number of press rounds together during the book's release in 2018, which lead to a somewhat awkward exchange on NBC tied to the Monica Lewinsky scandal. That said, the official synopsis of the four-part Netflix series says it uses stories from survivors to revisit “how convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein used his wealth and power to carry out his abuses.”

The hedge fund honcho and convicted pedophile was connected to a number of powerful and elite personalities before he died in prison last year under mysterious circumstances. Clinton was pictured with Epstein’s friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, aboard the “Lolita Express”, as seen in photos published by the New York Post. The billionaire pedophile's life has continued to draw public attention even after his death last year. It was recently admitted by Harvard University that they let Epstein keep a private office at the school for years despite his 2008 conviction for sex crimes.

It is worth noting that Netflix has strong ties to the Obama administration. Susan Rice, former Obama national security advisor, currently sits on the streaming giant's board of directors. What's more? Netflix also has a deal with Higher Ground, Michelle and Barack Obama's production company, which recently produced a documentary celebrating the life of the former first lady. Last month, Donald Trump Jr. suggested to his Twitter followers that Hillary Clinton was behind the death of the disgraced financier and pedophile. The comment came in response to Clinton's jab at his father for his 'sarcastic' suggestion that coronavirus could be treated with disinfectant. Clinton had shared, "Please don’t poison yourself because Donald Trump thinks it could be a good idea." In response to this, Donald Trump Jr. shared, "We know, we know … poison is reserved for a long list of people like Jeffrey Epstein … and servers. Am I right?” alongside a wink emoji. 
Epstein was mysteriously found dead in his cell at the Manhattan Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) on August 10 last year. The 66-year-old had escaped significant jail time following his initial conviction in 2008 after a plea deal he struck with then-Florida US Attorney Alex Acosta, but was once again arrested in July 2019 on federal charges of sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. Epstein was found unconscious in his prison cell with injuries to his neck. The guards who were supposed to be conducting regular checks on Epstein's well-being fell asleep on the job and security camera footage from outside Epstein's cell was surprisingly also not usable.
