Netflix is promoting a new four-part special titled “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich” which premieres tomorrow. The producers of the special interviewed Steve Scully, an IT guy who worked for Epstein on his private island Little St. James, and he has some interesting things to say about his time on the island. For one thing, he claims to have seen Bill Clinton there with Epstein.
Steve Scully, now 70, who maintained the phones and internet on the island, claims in the Netflix show that he saw Mr Clinton with Epstein sitting in the porch area of the island’s villa.
There were no other guests around at the time, he claims.
He also alleges he once saw another male guest of Epstein on the island completely naked surrounded by three topless girls, and he recalls seeing other “important people” coming and going from Little Saint James.
Mr Scully said: “You tell yourself that you didn’t know for sure and you never really saw anything, but that’s all just rationalization.
“Jeffrey Epstein, he was a guy who concealed his deviance very well—but he didn’t conceal it that well.”
Clinton has admitted to flying on Epstein’s private plane on four occasions but said he was never on Little St. James and that he had no idea about Epstein’s “terrible crimes.” He released a statement about this last year:

It’s worth noting that this new special seems to be based on the book by novelist James Patterson which is also titled “Filthy Rich.” Patterson also previously co-wrote a thriller with Bill Clinton and the two appeared friendly on their book tour. I mention that because it’s a little surprising to me that allegations involving Clinton wound up in this production. I wonder if Patterson and Clinton are still on speaking terms.
Clinton’s secret service detail has claimed he never went anywhere without them (and hence couldn’t have flown solo to Little St. James), so it seems someone in this scenario must be lying. I’m long past giving Bill Clinton the benefit of the doubt. Why would anyone believe the denials of a man who lost his law license over similar lies?
And speaking of odious liars, Prince Andrew was allegedly also spotted on Epstein’s island by Scully. He was seen making out with a woman whom Scully later identified as a very young Virginia Roberts.
Speaking as part of the documentary, he said: “It was probably around 2004, I saw Prince Andrew. He was at the pool. He was with at that time an unknown girl to me.
“She was young, She didn’t have any top on. They were engaged in foreplay. He was grabbing her, and grinding against her.”
Scully claims he later bumped into the two of them in a hallway and briefly spoke with the Prince:
He said, ‘All right, Steve the phone guy. I saw you earlier . . . it’s certainly a lovely place to work isn’t it.’
“This is where it struck me as how young the girl was, because she stood like a kid would stand behind a parent…
“I thought she looked particularly young. It bothered me. I thought that it wasn’t appropriate.”
It’s not clear if Roberts has verified the specific claims made by Scully, i.e. that she was the girl with Prince Andrew on this occasion, but Roberts has previously claimed that she slept with Prince Andrew on three occasions at Epstein’s behest. The first time was in London (when she was 17), the second time in New York and the third time was on Little St. James.
Hopefully this special will renew some interest in pursuing some of the people who aided and abetted Epstein’s crimes against women. Here’s a CBS This Morning segment about the new show including a portion of the interview with Scully.
