New Records Demolish Vital Part of Clinton's Epstein Statement

Share

New information has thrown a wrench into former President Bill Clinton’s efforts to distance himself from accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

A bombshell report directly contradicts a statement released by the Clinton team claiming to detail Clinton’s past with Epstein.

Although the statement said Clinton had no contact with Epstein until 2002, Fox News discovered records that show Clinton cozying up with Epstein over dinner as early as 1995.

The revelation originates from a Fox News review of a story the Palm Beach Post ran back in March of 1995 detailing that then-President Clinton attended a “three-hour dinner” at the time with a “very select group of people” — one of which was Epstein.

“Joining Clinton for a three-hour dinner was a very select group of people, some of whom, according to one Democratic Party source, gave as much as $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee for the privilege of dining with the president,” the Palm Beach Post reported.

That stands in stark contrast to the Clinton team’s version of events.

“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,” Clinton’s statement claims.

“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.”

Notably absent is any mention of a 1995 dinner with the man behind the “Lolita express.”

Epstein is facing charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy over allegations he sexually abused a network of underage girls at his homes in New York and Florida.

Although Epstein has pleaded not guilty, his case is sending shockwaves through the country on speculation there may be a number of high-profile politicians and businessmen who were intimately involved with Epstein’s shady extracurricular activities.

Epstein, a wealthy financier, also owned a mansion in the U.S. Virgin Islands that locals called “Pedophile Island,” according to The New York Post.

“Everybody called it ‘Pedophile Island,’” Kevin Goodrich said of Epstein’s Little St. James Island. Goodrich, a St. Thomas boat operator, called the Epstein’s property “our dark corner.”
