Analysing footage of Epstein's pre-hearing deposition for alleged sex crimes, body language expert Cliff Lansley pinpoints the moment when Epstein's betrays his guilt.

Sitting down, Epstein whispers 'nope' in response to the claim that he procured underage girls for sex as a birthday present - but as he does so, a smile creeps over his face.

For Lansley, Epstein's behaviour contradicts his denial.

"At the point the three 12-year-old girls are mentioned we see a head turn away from the interviewer, an eye closure, and the right lip lifts," he says.

"This is contempt; It's moving the corner of the mouth towards the centre of the cheek, contempt towards the question."

Professor of Linguistics Dawn Archer agrees that Epstein's 'smirk of enjoyment' is significant in revealing his guilt.

She says: "We even see him smiling as he gives his first 'I would like to answer that question, I really would.'

"It's an odd thing to be enjoying though, isn't it, when you think about what he's facing? And it's a very odd thing to be enjoying if you're facing the kind of allegations as he was, including that minor girls should be offered as a birthday present."
