The "black book" of Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier and now-accused child sex trafficker, is a smorgasbord of high-profile, powerful people, including Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, Britain's Prince Andrew and former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and convicted sex assailant and comedian Bill Cosby, Epstein's former neighbor.
Then there's supermarket mogul Ron Burkle, Clinton's daughter Chelsea Clinton, former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and John Kerry, late Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, media titan Rupert Murdoch, and movie director Woody Allen, New York magazine notes in a new article detailing the contents of Epstein's private phone book and private plane's flight logs.
The article contains summaries of Epstein's relationships with various well-heeled people whose names appear in those documents including President Donald Trump, who once called Epstein a "terrific guy" in an interview with New York, and Bill Clinton, who traveled multiple times on Epstein's plane.
Trump's first wife, Ivana, is in the book, as is his third wife, Melania, and his daughter, Ivanka, currently senior advisor to the president.
"Along with the logs of Epstein's private plane, released in 2015, the book paints a picture of a man deeply enmeshed in the highest social circles," New York says in its article.
New York notes that a woman whose name appears on flight manifests of Epstein's jet — "including Bill Clinton's trip across Africa, and who wound up working at the Clinton Foundation" — is one of five women whom Epstein recommended as an assistant for Charlie Rose, the then host of a PBS talk show.
Rose ended up hiring three of Epstein's recommendations, the magazine reported.
One of those women, who later was among more than two dozen who accused Rose of sexual misconduct, was quoted by New York as saying, "I was being offered up for abuse" by Epstein.
Epstein, a registered sex offender, was arrested in early July on federal charges that he trafficked dozens of underage girls, who traveled to his huge New York City townhouse and Palm Beach, Florida, mansion, where he alleged sexually abused them during purported "massage" sessions from 2002 through 2005.
The 66-year-old, who pleaded guilty to prostitution-related charges in 2008 in Florida, has pleaded not guilty in the current case, for which he remains held without bond in a federal jail in Manhattan.
Trump and Clinton have distanced themselves from Epstein since his latest arrest.
Trump has said "I was not a fan" of Epstein.
Clinton's spokesman has said he has not spoken with Epstein in "well over a decade," and that "President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York."
Rose's spokesman told New York that Rose only learned about Epstein's abuse years after the recommendations of assistants, when Epstein pleaded guilty in the Florida case.
