Former Formula One race car driver Eddie Irvine revealed he once partied with Bill Clinton at one of Jeffrey Epstein's lavish parties.
Irvine, 54, said he didn't think anything of seeing the former president at the disgraced financer's parties, that were also filled with stars and influential guests.
'I remember him being around - I saw all these people around,' Irvine, who is from Northern Ireland, said to the Belfast Telegraph.
The athlete said it wasn't uncommon for famous faces to turn up at Epstein's parties, which were always packed with models.
Irvine said he also saw Epstein and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, the woman who has accused the two of making her a 'sex slave' and abusing her for years.
'I had no idea about that, the providing of underage girls,' Ivine said to the Belfast Telegraph.
'I remember seeing her (Virginia) around a few times, but I would have said she was 20 by that stage. I never saw young girls,' he added.
In late July the racer admitted he partied with the pedophile financier and his alleged fixer Maxwell in New York and Miami.
'If the charges are true, it ain’t good,' he said.
Now Epstein and his high-flying friends are under scrutiny in newly released court papers in the case of Ghislane Maxwell, who allegedly helped procure young girls to abuse.
Giuffre claims Epstein and Maxwell forced her to have sex with Prince Andrew.
Clinton was named in those court papers that reported he jetted off to Epstein’s private island Little St. James where young women and girls were sexually abused by Epstein.
Clinton has not been accused of any wrongdoing and has denied ever visiting the island.
Epstein died on August 10, 2019 in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
The New York City medical examiner ruled Epstein’s death as a suicide by hanging after he was found with sheets wrapped around his neck. He died two weeks after he was placed on suicide watch at the jail.
The disgraced financier’s death was a huge blow in the investigation into his child trafficking charges, where he was accused of procuring underage girls for his rich and powerful friends and himself.
Maxwell was arrested on July 2 in New Hampshire on six charges of sex trafficking and perjury in connection to the alleged trafficking ring.
She previously denied all wrongdoing and faces 35 years in jail if convicted. She's denied the charges. She's being held at the Metro Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York.
