Bill Clinton, aka Slick Willie, the man who was impeached for lying under oath about an elicit sexual relationship carried out inside the Oval Office with an intern, wants us to believe that he knew “nothing” about Jeffery Epstein’s sick proclivity for having sex with young girls.
But, we know Clinton’s a liar. Somehow we’re all supposed to take his word?
The New York Post reported:
“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes [Epstein] pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement said.
“In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,” the statement added. “Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and he has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
Clinton, 72, was said to have taken more than two dozen trips on Epstein’s private Boeing 727 — dubbed the “Lolita Express” — before he pleaded guilty in his 2008 Florida case. The wealthy financier has also hosted President Trump, according to court claims.
Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Christine Pelosi, a Democratic National Committee official, has said that she believes some of Epstein’s elitist buddies could “quite likely” be “implicated” in his latest sex-trafficking case. Some of his other prominent pals include Woody Allen, Alan Dershowitz and Great Britain’s Prince Andrew.
“This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice,” Christine Pelosi tweeted Saturday. “It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats.”
Breitbart News reported:
The statement denotes that “staff, supporters of the Foundation,” and the former president’s Secret Service detail were along on “every leg” of those trips.” Fox News, however, reported in May 2016 that Clinton went on at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s plane — the “Lolita Express” — between 2001 and 2003, according to flight logs from the Federal Aviation Administration. Listed as the destination for those trips were exotic locales like the Azores, Singapore, Brunei, Norway, and Russia, among others.
On at least five of those excursions, the flight logs denote that Clinton was not accompanied by any Secret Service personnel.
The former president, though, did occasionally travel in the company of Ghislaine Maxwell, a New York socialite, and Sarah Kellen, Epstein’s former assistant. Both women were previously investigated by the FBI and Florida law enforcement over concerns they helped recruit Epstein’s underage victims.
Prosecutors also allege that Epstein paid his victims to find other underage girls for him to abuse. The incidents were purported to have taken place between 2002 and 2005.
If convicted, Epstein faces upwards of more than 40 years in prison, which is likely to be a life sentence, as he is 66-years-old.
In 2008, Epstein pled guilty in the state of Florida to one charge of soliciting and procuring prostitution from an individual under 18 years of age. That case, which only resulted in a 13 month prison sentence and financial restitution for dozens of the victims, has recently come under scrutiny after the Miami Herald investigated the confines of the plea deal Epstein struck with then-Florida prosecutor Alexander Acosta — now the secretary of labor.
Prior to that conviction, Epstein was a Democrat megadonor. From 1989 to 2003, he donated more than $139,000 to Democratic federal candidates, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Of that sum, a significant portion went either directly to or in aid of Clinton’s 1992 and 1996 presidential campaigns.
