One of the most intriguing, and frankly disturbing, modern political mysteries may have just been rocked by an incredibly salacious new revelation.
For decades, there have been whispers about Jeffrey Epstein, the now-deceased financier who seemed to be awfully chummy with some awfully powerful people. Those who lived near his private island in the Bahamas nicknamed the place “pedophile island”, lending some credence to the rumors that Epstein had created an influence racket by catering to the depraved and powerful via blackmail and child sex slaves.
This all sounded very crazy…at least for a while. Then, the more the world got to know about Epstein, the more believable the story became.
Now, months after Epstein allegedly killed himself in a highly secure prison in Manhattan, one of his right hand associates has spilled some fairly potent beans.

Ghislaine Maxwell appeared to admit Jeffrey Epstein was taping his famous friends, including Donald Trump and the Clintons, during a 2016 meeting with former CBS producer Ira Rosen, a new book reveals.
The British socialite, who is accused of procuring underage girls for the billionaire pedophile, reportedly told Rosen she didn’t ‘know where’ such recordings were after the Emmy-winning producer asked her to hand over footage of Trump.
The conversation took place ahead of the 2016 US presidential election and Maxwell, who supported Hillary at the time, refused to help, saying: ‘If you get the tapes on Trump you have to do [Bill] Clinton’.
The admission was stark.
In his memoir, Rosen reveals he arranged a meeting with Maxwell in early 2016, and acting on ‘hunch’ that the tapes existed, tricked her into confirming they did.
‘I want the tapes. I know he [Epstein] was videotaping everyone and I want the tapes of Trump with the girls,’ Rosen told her.
Maxwell replied: ‘I don’t know where they are.’
Maxwell remains in custody pending her own trial.
