The big names in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book': Trumps, Clintons, Prince Andrew, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen, more on accused sex trafficker's phone list
A video still from the NBC archive showing Donald Trump talking with Jeffrey Epstein at a party in Mar-A-Lago from 1992. The "black book" of Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier and now-accused child sex trafficker, is a smorgasbord of high-profile, powerful people, including Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, Britain's Prince Andrew and former Prime Minister Tony Blair, and convicted sex assailant and comedian Bill Cosby, Epstein's former neighbor. Trump's first wife, Ivana, is in the book, as is his third wife, Melania, and his daughter, Ivanka, currently senior advisor to the president. Epstein's address book originally was published in 2015 by the defunct news site Gawker, after its content was revealed in a court case.
