Resurfaced video from a 2005 police raid on Jeffrey Epstein’s Florida mansion shows a mysterious photo that appears to be of him and Ghislaine Maxwell in the White House.
The video was shot by officers from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office inside Epstein’s $US16 million Palm Beach mansion on October 10, 2005. It was republished by the Daily Mail this week.
A photo collage in the footage includes a photo of a grey-haired man resembling Epstein and a dark-haired woman resembling Maxwell, who’s been accused of acting as his madam, standing in front of a White House logo, a backdrop that appears to match the White House press briefing room.
Insider has not been able to verify the photo. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Epstein was known to be close with former US President Bill Clinton, who rode on Epstein’s plane on several occasions in the months after leaving the White House in January 2001.
A framed picture that appears to be of a naked Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, can also be seen hanging on the wall of his home in the footage, alongside shots of numerous other young women who are either naked or wearing bikinis.
One picture on the wall that appears to show a very young child exposing her behind was blurred in the footage, which began circulating in 2016, the Daily Mail said.
Several women who have accused Epstein of sexual misconduct have said Maxwell recruited them and other girls as young as 15 to have sex with the financier. Virginia Roberts Giuffre accused Maxwell of grooming her to become Epstein’s “sex slave.”
Maxwell has not been charged with a crime and has denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
At a hearing in New York on Tuesday featuring testimony from 16 of Epstein’s accusers, Giuffre said, “I am a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and the dark and cruel criminal acts they committed against me.”
The arrest was made over a decade after Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution and served 13 months in jail.
On August 10, he was found dead in a Manhattan jail cell. His death was ruled a suicide.
Legal experts have speculated that Maxwell might have taken Epstein’s place as the “kingpin” whom US prosecutors want to take down.
