Jeffrey Epstein documents: Witness alleged sex tapes filmed involving Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Sir Richard Branson

  • 09/01/2024

Prince Andrew and former US President Bill Clinton's names are again emerging in court documents related to Jeffrey Epstein - this time describing a witness allegation they were involved in explicit videos. 

A fourth batch of the documents were made public on Tuesday (NZ time), detailing how former associates of notorious paedophile Epstein - including Prince Andrew, Clinton and billionaire Sir Richard Branson, "were in fact filmed on each separate occasion by Jeffrey" when "my friend had sexual intercourse" with them, witness Sarah Ransome alleged. 

Ransome said her friend "managed to get a hold of some footage of the filmed sex tapes, which clearly identify the faces of Clinton, Prince Andrew and Branson having sexual intercourse with her", according to the documents, as reported by The Guardian.  

She also alleged former US President Donald Trump had "sexual relations" with her friend at Epstein's New York mansion "on regular occasions", the newspaper reported.

According to the report, Epstein's lawyers argued Ransome's testimony was "fabricated from whole cloth" - given she went on to retract the allegations and didn't provide proof of the tapes' existence. 

Earlier allegations against Prince Andrew in the initial document release last week claimed the Duke of York groped a woman's breast in Epstein's apartment - an accusation reported in 2020 by the Mirror newspaper and denied by Buckingham Palace. 

Prince Andrew has firmly denied any wrongdoing. 

And a spokesperson for Sir Richard's Virgin Group said, per The Guardian: "In a New Yorker report published in 2019, Ransome admitted that she had 'invented' the tapes. We can confirm that Sarah Ransome's claims are baseless and unfounded." 

A spokesman for Clinton also released a statement last week, saying it had now "been nearly 20 years since President Clinton last had contact with Epstein". He reiterated Clinton didn't know anything about Epstein's "terrible crimes". 

Clinton, Trump and Sir Richard have never been accused of any wrongdoing relating to Epstein, while UK police have said no new probe would be launched into allegations against Prince Andrew following the release of the documents.
