A US court disclosed additional documents on Monday concerning Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire and jet-setting financier who committed suicide in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex trafficking accusations.
According to the newly released documents, a woman who accused Epstein of sexual abuse claimed she had copies of tapes he made of some of his high-profile friends, including ex-US President Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and British business tycoon Richard Branson, allegedly having sex with an unnamed woman.
The woman reportedly alleged that ex-US President Donald Trump had “sexual relations” with one of her anonymous pals “on a regular basis” at Epstein’s New York residence.
“She confided in me about her casual ‘friendship’ with Donald Trump, who definitely seemed to have a thing for her, and she told me how he kept going on about how he liked her ‘pert nipples,'” the lady was quoted as saying in a New York Post report using the leaked documents.
“I also know she had sexual relations with Trump at Jeffery’s New York (NY) mansion on regular occasions,” according to the report.

According to the web portal article, the woman wrote an email in October 2016 recanting the charges, stating that going public would result in “only bad things” and “pain for my family.”
Later that year, in a post, she revealed in a New Yorker piece that she “invented the tapes to draw attention to Epstein’s behavior.”
“These baseless accusations have been fully retracted because they are simply false and have no merit,” Donald Trump’s advisor, Cheung, said in response to the allegations.
Angel Urena, Clinton’s representative, declined to comment.
