Though convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is dead, his sordid past is very much alive. And if a report Wednesday in the U.K. Daily Mail is accurate, a lurid new detail has emerged that’s stranger than anything reported so far.
The Daily Mail reported Wednesday that a visitor to Epstein’s luxurious Manhattan mansion saw what appeared to be a painting of former President Bill Clinton — dressed as a woman — hanging in a room in the palatial townhouse.
Epstein’s visitor, a woman who said she was meeting with the financier in 2012 to discuss a business proposal, spotted a grotesque image of America’s 42nd president through an open door, according to the Daily Mail.
“It was absolutely Bill Clinton. It was shocking – it was definitely a painting of him. It was a very provocative, sexual picture. He was wearing heels, a blue dress and his hand was in a weird position,” the woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Daily Mail.
The woman said her business partner was able to snap a photo of the bizarre sight, according to the Daily Mail — a photo that the woman provided the Daily Mail.
The photo appears to depict a painting of Clinton against a dark wall. In the image, Clinton is seated with his legs crossed and draped over the arm of his chair.
The color of the dress in the image, the Daily Mail notes, is an apparent reference to the infamous blue dress that Clinton’s former intern, Monica Lewinsky, wore during a sexual encounter with the president that helped lead to his impeachment.
The Daily Mail described specific details that were even more revolting: “The shoulder of the blue dress hangs off to the side as ‘Clinton’ seems to raise a ‘come hither’ finger towards the viewer,” the outlet reported.

The woman who noticed the painting told the Daily Mail that she was “stunned” by the painting and “mortified” that her business partner would dare take a picture of the monstrosity.
But the painting was not the only unsettling sight the anonymous source took in at the accused sex trafficker’s mansion.
According to the Daily Mail, the guest saw outside Epstein’s office a “young Hispanic girl there, all hunched up over her phone, waiting to see [Epstein] next.”
“She was really young – she looked about 14,” the source added.
If those two scenes aren’t worrying enough, the Daily Mail reported another telling detail: That “Epstein’s alleged procurer, Ghislaine Maxwell, was one of the guests at Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding to Marc Mezvinsky.”
The outlet added a seemingly innocuous photo of the former president walking his daughter down the aisle. But the Daily Mail called attention to Maxwell, who appears to stand with other wedding guests on the right side of the picture.
Maxwell’s presence, the Daily Mail observed, is significant for one reason: Maxwell was known to be exceedingly close to Epstein, yet Chelsea Clinton’s wedding happened “at least a year after the former president says he last spoke to the pervert financier,” the newspaper reported.
While The Western Journal has no confirmation of the story’s accuracy from other news outlets, the Daily Mail’s reporting — and its disturbing embedded images — are an ominous new twist in an already provocative tale of vice.
