Ghislaine Maxwell’s Former Friend Says Tapes of 2 U.S. Lawmakers Engaged In Sex With Minors Exists

The former partner of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has some major information that could ruin two United States politicians.

A former friend of Ghislaine Maxwell said that she “’has tapes of two prominent US politicians having sex with minors,” The Sun reported.

The former jewel thief, who used the name William Steel, said that Epstein and Maxwell made him watch the footage to show them their power.

He said he has seen videos of “celebrities” and “world figures” engaging in “threesomes, even orgies” with minors.

“I was forced to watch their videos because they were trying to impress me,” Steel said. “They wanted to convince me of their power and who they held in their grip.

“They boasted about ‘owning’ powerful people,” he said. “Ghislaine was more into showing me those than Jeff. When you’re in a situation like that, you have to pretend to be non- judgmental. But it was shocking.

“I saw videos of very powerful people — celebrities, world figures — in those videos having sex, threesomes, even orgies with minors,” he said.

Steel published a book in 2018 about his relationship with millionaire, and suspected serial killer, Robert Durst titled “Sex And The Serial Killer.”

He said that he had pages in the book about things that happened on Epstein’s private island but those pages had to be removed for legal reasons.

“I saw videos and photos of people having sex with various young girls and with Jeff,” Steel said in the interview.

“There was footage of two very high-profile society figures and an under-age girl together,” he said. “Two high-profile American politicians were also in different videos with minors.

“They showed me black-and-white footage of a woman they told me was internationally known, a well-known rock star and another man having sex. “It looked like it was taken in the 1960s and without their knowledge,” he said.

“They wanted to impress me and intimidate me. They were so powerful because of who they knew worldwide,” he said.

Steel said he stole millions of dollars worth of jewels and art across the United States and said that Epstein and Maxwell had purchased some from him.

“It was mostly tennis bracelets, charm bracelets, women’s Piaget watches,” the former thief said.“I remember pearls were a popular thing.

“None of it was for them. They didn’t need to buy stolen jewelry,” Steel said. “They didn’t even need to buy stolen jewelry for the girls, but they did.

“They would buy it as gifts for girls they were trying to impress or groom,” he said.

He described to The Sun how he met the convicted pedophile and alleged child sex trafficker too.

“We were in the upstairs room at a very high-end diamond dealer, the kind of place where only a few people are allowed in at a time,” he said.

“I was there doing what I do. I was meeting my fence,” Steel said. “I saw Jeff with a young girl who looked only about 13 or 14 and he had his hand in the back of her shorts.

“That’s what first got my attention,” he said. “She was so young and he was much older. That’s when I knew that he was dirty.

“I had about 200,000 dollars worth of jewellery that I was getting rid of and later I struck up a conversation with him.

“He later said the girl he was with was his niece but I called bulls**t on that, telling him I saw what he was doing with her,” he said.
