People have long speculated about what kind of leverage Epstein & Co. had against powerful people to get away with such flagrant sexual criminality. We’re one step closer to knowing.
Epstein came out of nowhere. His income streams were… murky at best. And yet he had no trouble meeting and hobnobbing with the elitist of the elite. Billionaires, royalty, you name it, he was in the mix.
He was very well-connected politically, too. Bill Clinton’s name showed up on the passenger manifest for Epstein’s infamous ‘Lolita Express’ at least 26 times.
Ghislaine Maxwell ‘has tapes of two prominent US politicians having sex with minors’ and boasted of ‘owning’ powerful people, according to a former friend.
The ex-jewel robber, who used the pseudonym William Steel, said they ‘forced’ him to watch the footage as they wanted to convince him of their ‘power’.
He also claimed to have seen clips of ‘celebrities’ and ‘world figures’ having ‘threesomes, even orgies’ with minors.
It follows Maxwell, 58, being arrested last Thursday on charges she helped lure at least three girls – one as young as 14 – to be sexually abused by Epstein, who was accused of victimising dozens of girls and women over many years.
Steel told The Sun: ‘They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip. They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people.’
He added: ‘I saw videos of very powerful people – celebrities, world figures – in those videos having sex, threesomes, even orgies with minors.’
The former friend also referred to two ‘high-profile’ American politicians who were in videos with minors.

It’s going to be really interesting to see what happens if she turns State’s witness to save her own bacon, don’t you think?
I couldn’t care less what the party affiliations are. Anyone who abused kids should have the book thrown at them.
