Former President Bill Clinton visited with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein on his so-called pedophile island in the Caribbean, according to an accusers account in court documents unsealed Thursday night.

The documents contain the testimony of Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who told an attorney that the former president visited Epstein’s private island, Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Daily Beast reports.

Giuffre does not describe Clinton committing any crimes, but she notes that orgies were routine activities on the island, the Daily Beast reports. Clinton did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here [on the island],” Giuffre said, the court documents show. Giuffre said Epstein laughed at her question and said, “Well, he owes me a favor.”

“He never told me what favors they were,” Giuffre said. “I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”

The Epstein accuser said that while Clinton was on Epstein’s private island, Epstein’s cohort and ex-lover, Ghislaine Maxwell, someone named Emmy, and two “young girls” from New York were also present, the court documents show. The Daily Beast notes that the name Emmy may be referring to Emmy Tayler, Maxwell’s former assistant.

According to Giuffre, Clinton and other visitors to the island did not stay in the main house but stayed in villas on the island. (RELATED: Epstein’s Ponzi Scheme Partner Says Ghislaine Maxwell Will ‘Crack In Two Seconds’ And Cooperate With Feds)

Flight logs show that Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s “Lolita Express,” a jet that reportedly includes a bed where passengers could have group sex with girls, Fox News reported in May 2016. The former president left his Secret Service detail behind on a least five of these flights, according to Fox News.

News of the unsealed documents comes after Maxwell was arrested by the FBI at 8:30 a.m. on July 2 in Bradford, New Hampshire. A grand jury for the U.S. District Court of Southern New York indicted Maxwell on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors to these illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury.

U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan denied bail to Maxwell during a virtual hearing in July, saying “the risks are simply too great” to allow Maxwell to be released on bail.
