Since his controversial death in August 2019, financial mogul and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has been the subject of many rumors and speculation.
Those questions are likely to grow after The Sun published photographs showing Epstein in the Clinton White House.
The pictures were released by the British tabloid on Saturday night, and they depict Epstein along with socialite and accused human trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell meeting with former President Bill Clinton in the White House.

The paper stated that both Epstein and Maxwell “toured Clinton’s residence and the East Room during a reception after Epstein gave £7,280 to the refurbishment of the Oval Office.”
“The White House reception — hosted by both Clinton and wife Hillary — was for people who contributed towards the £290,000 renovation via the White House Historical Association,” the paper continued.

This is not the first time that Clinton has been linked to Epstein, who pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting and procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution.
In 2016, Fox News reported that records from the Federal Aviation Administration showed Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express.” What’s more, the former president appears to have left his Secret Service security detail behind for at five of those flights.
Fox reported that one of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Roberts, claims to have seen Clinton on Epstein’s private Caribbean island in 2002, a place that has been referred to as “Pedophile Island.”
Conchita Sarnoff, the author of a book about Epstein called TrafficKing, said that the flight logs raise disturbing implications.
“Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” she said. “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?”
Last year, former Clinton confidant Doug Band told Vanity Fair that Clinton was a guest on the island in 2003. Band went on to liken Epstein and Clinton’s social circle to a cult, saying, “It’s hard to get yourself out and difficult to see outside of it. And it’s even harder to understand that when you’re inside.”
