The underage sex, the powerful pals, the mysterious fortune, the jet-set lifestyle. It was now all at risk.

According to a new book, Too Famous: The Rich, the Powerful, the Wishful, the Damned, the Notorious by Michael Wolff, the billionaire pedophile had decided that in order to save himself, he would throw Donald Trump and Bill Clinton under the bus. Trump and Clinton have both denied any wrongdoing.

In fact, Epstein believed he was arrested by the Trump Justice Department simply so he could squeal on Clinton.

Ironically, one way his alleged “pimp,” socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, might wiggle out of the 30-year jail sentence that awaits her if convicted of sex trafficking is by ratting out wealthy pals.

People, like say, Prince Andrew.

The Royal Family member, who denies any wrongdoing, has been served with a lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre, who alleges she was forced to have sex with Andrew years ago while underage at Maxwell’s home in London.

Andrew has not been charged with any crimes and none of the allegations have been proven in court.

By the time Epstein was arrested for multiple sex trafficking charges in July 2019, his name was mud. The hedge fund manager thought he needed some positive PR to rehabilitate his image, Wolff writes.

Maybe an interview with television journalists Rachel Maddow or Gayle King, Wolff reveals, adding that Epstein went so far as to stage a mock exchange with former Trump strategist Steve Bannon.

According to numerous reports, Epstein had his homes in New York, Palm Beach, the Virgin Islands, and New Mexico wired to the eyeballs, so he could record the conservations and sexual encounters of his friends.

Call it insurance.

And Epstein, 66 at the time, was ready to cough up $3 million to a British PR firm to put some gloss on his tatty personage.

Wolff also reports that Epstein knew the jig was up in America, and he was contemplating purchasing a vast property in Morocco, which doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the U.S.

But by July 6, 2019, as he flew back home from Paris, it was too late. The feds had called the plane to have the pilots confirm Epstein was on board.

The fiendish financier, who later committed suicide in a New York jail cell, desperately wanted the plane to turn around. The flyboys told him “no can do.”

Even after he was busted, Epstein believed a deal could be made and that he would ultimately walk away. Wolff claims the hedge fund headcase was shockingly cavalier about his penchant for sex with underage girls.

In the days before the arrest, the PR whiz kids met with Epstein at his Paris apartment. Epstein was told that for $3 million, the flacks could turn his reputation around in 30 to 60 days. Every negative story about the pedophile would be countered.

But by the summer of 2019, it was all coming apart. Wolff writes that Epstein even believed that Trump had orchestrated his 2006 underage prostitution arrest in Palm Beach.

Now, it’s his former girlfriend and muse, Maxwell’s turn on the hot seat.

The 59-year-old British socialite is slated to go on trial Nov. 29 in Manhattan on sex trafficking and perjury charges. She has pleaded not guilty and denies any wrongdoing.

Maxwell’s problem is that she is the last one standing from Epstein’s twisted orbit. There will be no deals for her unless …

She coughs up some names. Big names.

Otherwise, she’ll likely come out of prison in a box if convicted.

Epstein fooled the U.S. justice system once. He hoped he could do it again. This will not happen again. And that’s bad news for Madam Maxwell.
