A former CBS producer has accused the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell of refusing to help find videotapes Jeffrey Epstein made of Bill Clinton because it would hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the 2016 presidential election.

In his new book “Ticking Clock: Behind The Scenes At 60 Minutes,” former CBS producer Ira Rosen wrote about a conversation he had with Maxwell back in 2016 in which he asked for footage of Donald Trump that Epstein may have shot.

“If you get the tapes on Trump you have to do [Bill] Clinton,” Maxwell responded, according to Daily Mail.

After admitting that he was only acting on a “hunch” that the tapes even existed, Rosen said that he told Maxwell, “I want the tapes. I know he [Epstein] was videotaping everyone and I want the tapes of Trump with the girls.

“I don’t know where they are,” he claimed that Maxwell replied.

Rosen then said that he begged Maxwell to “ask Epstein” because the “fate of the country is at stake. … Trump could be elected president and how would you feel if those tapes emerged after he was in office?”

“She gave me a stern look and pointed a finger in my face,” Rosen alleged. “She said: ‘I am the daughter of a press baron. I know the way you people think. If you do one side, you must do the other. If you get the tapes on Trump you have to do Clinton.’”

Rosen claimed that Maxwell alleged that Epstein never told her where he kept the alleged tapes.

Bill Clinton has long claimed that he was never a guest at Epstein’s Caribbean estate, but court documents have said that Clinton and “two young girls” were guests of Epstein’s in the early 2000s. Back in August, disturbing images leaked of Clinton receiving a neck massage from alleged Epstein victim Chauntae Davies.

Epstein allegedly committed suicide in prison in 2019 while awaiting trial on various sex charges. Maxwell was arrested last summer for allegedly grooming young girls for sex with Epstein, and sometimes participating in the abuse herself. She remains in prison at this time awaiting her trial, which is scheduled to begin in July.
