Ghislaine Maxwell “has tapes of two prominent American politicians having sex with minors” and boasted that she “owns” powerful people, “said a former friend.
The ex-jewel robber, using the pseudonym William Steel, said they “forced” him to view the images because they wanted to convince him of their “power.”
He also claimed to have seen clips of “celebrities” and “world figures” with “threesomes, even orgies” with minors.
It follows 58-year-old Maxwell who was arrested last Thursday on charges of helping at least three girls – one of 14 – be sexually assaulted by Epstein, who was accused of victimizing dozens of girls and women for many years have made.

Steel said The sun: “They wanted to convince me of their strength and who they held in their grip. They bragged about “possessing” powerful people. ‘
He added, “I saw videos of very powerful people – celebrities, world figures – in those videos with sex, threesomes, even orgies with minors.”
The former friend also referred to two “high-profile” American politicians who were in videos involving minors.
Maxwell, daughter of the late British publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, is the ex-girlfriend and longtime close associate of Epstein.
She has been accused of facilitating his crimes and has joined him on some occasions to sexually abuse the girls, according to charges against her.
Several of Epstein’s victims have described Maxwell as his primary enabler, recruiting and nursing young girls for abuse. She has denied wrongdoing and called claims against her “absolute bullshit.”
Maxwell was arrested last week by a team of federal agents on a $ 1 million estate she bought in New Hampshire. The detectives had been watching Maxwell and knew she was hiding in various locations in New England.
She had changed her email address, ordered packages under someone else’s name, and registered at least one new phone number under an alias ‘G Max,’ prosecutors have said.

The British socialite will appear in New York’s Southern Court on July 14 at 1 p.m. and the hearing will take place via a video link due to the corona virus.
She is from the “hellish” prison where she is being held and only the judge, Alison Nathan, will be present, along with one prosecutor and one lawyer.
Maxwell – a friend of billionaires, celebrities, presidents and royalty before she was arrested – faces a six-count federal charge that could earn her 35 years of imprisonment.
She is accused in four seconds of acting as Mrs. van Epstein, chasing and ‘training’ young girls for abuse in the late 1990s.
Two more counts accuse her of lying about the abuse in court when she was charged in 2015 by one of the victims – Virginia Roberts.
However, observers and experts believe that she is not the primary target of the state and that she will likely be offered a plea deal to incite others on Epstein’s circle.
Epstein was initially sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008 after he was found guilty of a single charge for soliciting sex from a child prostitute, despite being faced with a 53-page FBI indictment at one point.
