Accuser of blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein cited prominent Americans One largely unasked question surrounding the Jeffrey Epstein affair is whether any current or former U.S. political figures were videoed frolicking with the financier’s alleged ring of underage “sex slaves.” There is evidence Epstein kept cameras hidden in the bedrooms of his various homes.
