LEGAL experts believe Bill Clinton should face investigation over his ties to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in the wake of her prosecution.
Multiple US-barred attorneys told The Sun Online that in their view Clinton – along with other high profile associates of the pedophile couple – should be investigated by US prosecutors as they hunt for more accomplices of Epstein.
The former President is not accused of any wrongdoing, but he is known to have been a close pal of the sick sex traffickers.
Clinton flew on Epstein's jet upwards of 26 times after he left office, Epstein visited the Clinton White House at least 17 times between 1993 and 1995, and he is believed to have visited Epstein’s infamous “Pedo Island”.
Photos also surfaced earlier this year of Clinton being given a massage by Chauntae Davies – who claims she was raped by Epstein – during a trip to Africa in 2002.
Lawyers told The Sun Online how Clinton – along with everyone else who stepped foot on Epstein’s jet – should face a probe.
Clinton has always strongly denied any wrongdoing over his relationship with Epstein.
Ghislaine’s trial saw Clinton cited as a regular on Epstein’s private jet – and he was name dropped alongside other associates such as Donald Trump and Prince Andrew.

Both Trump and Andrew also deny any improper behavior over their relationship with Epstien.
Maxwell, 60, was found guilty on Wednesday of five counts of federal sex trafficking after a jury determined that she had recruited and groomed teenage girls to be sexually abused by Epstein.
And meanwhile after sex offender hanged himself inside his Manhattan jail cell after his arrest in 2019, Clinton claimed he knew "nothing about the terrible crimes" his friend had committed.
Attorney Lisa Bloom, who successfully represented eight of Epstein's accusers in civil cases against his estate, told The Sun Online that all friends and associates of Epstein and Maxwell who stepped foot on his Lolita Express should be thoroughly investigated by prosecutors.
In the wake of Maxwell's conviction, Bloom called it an "uncomfortable time" for anyone who has previously shared a close relationship with Epstein and Maxwell – who prosecutors say were “partners in crime” in grooming and sexually abusing young girls between 1994 and 2004.
Suggesting Maxwell didn't act alone, Bloom said anyone else who "participated in this massive pedophilia ring should be quaking in his or her boots."
Bloom said:: "There are probably thousands of victims in total, so when you're talking about the scandal, there has to be others who were involved.
"The question is, 'who else knew they were abusing girls besides Jeffery and Ghislaine?'"
Wendy J Murphy, a former Massachusetts prosecutor who teaches sexual violence law at New England Law Boston, called on prosecutors to investigate everyone who rode on Epstein's jet "at a minimum", insisting the buck doesn't stop with Maxwell.
"The case that was presented against Maxwell almost implied that the only people she and Epstein were servicing in this ring was themselves, and we know that's not true," Murphy told The Sun.
"It feels like, at the end of the day, that there's another shoe to drop – or many shoes to drop.
“Because the people who were at least equally responsible, those providing the demand side or 'customers', have so far been given a pass or have evaded any accountability to this point."
Murphy suggested that a "new amount of energy" will be focused on the individuals who participated in the abuse during, and in the wake of Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre's civil case against Prince Andrew, should it go ahead later in 2022 as currently slated.
She said: "There's still such much we don't know, and but between now and whenever the case happens, there's a chance it will be used to divulge more of the truth and information that the public is clamoring for."
Such information, Murphy suggests, may include: "Who else was involved? Where did the abuse happen?
“How vast Esptein's enterprise was? and how Maxwell communicated with others to make the business happen?"
Both Bloom and Murphy suggested it's unlikely that Maxwell will divulge information on any high-profile figures linked to Epstein in exchange for a lighter sentence at this stage.
In her reasoning, Bloom said if Maxwell had any intention of "singing" to prosecutors she would have already done it by now as part of a plea agreement.
Murphy, meanwhile, insisted it's unlikely that Maxwell has any valuable information to offer that authorities don't already know.
Even if any high-profile figures are found or accused of any Epstein-related impropriety, former US Prosecutor Bradley Simon told The Sun there's "almost no likelihood" they'd face any criminal charges anyway.
In addition to the statute of limitations likely having expired on any potential offense, in his years-long experience as a criminal defense attorney, Simon said "prosecutors tend to shy away from the very powerful in the very rich."
"That's just the way it is," he said. "Under no circumstances do I expect anyone else to be criminally charged."
Attorney and former counsel to President Donald Trump, Jenna Ellis, told The Sun Online that "known associates like Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and others should be brought to justice if they had any involvement in sexual exploitation of minors."
"Being a public figure or government official or even a Royal should not mean that anyone is above the rule of law," Ellis, a regular contributor on Newsmax added.
"I hope the world sees that protecting children matters more than high-profile men’s reputation and power."
She continued: "The reason people like Epstein and Maxwell got away with their crimes for so long is because the justice system can be circumvented by the powerful and the wealthy. The ethical standard of equal justice for all should be applied — for all.
"This case is a stark reminder that sexual exploitation of children and human trafficking happens more than we would all like to admit."
The Sun Online has approached representatives for Clinton for comment.
