Former President Bill Clinton, who is longtime friends with pedophile Jeffery Epstein, has released a statement about the billionaire's arrest over the weekend and charges related to child sex abuse and trafficking.
"President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffery Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York. 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 spokesperson said. "Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secretary 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 has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida."
According to extensive reporting and flight logs, Clinton took at least 26 trips to Epstein's private island where much of the abuse occurred. He ditched his Secret Service detail to do so.
Ok, something doesn’t add up. Clinton says four flights. But previously-reported flight logs say many more, with no Secret Service detail listed for five flights: https://t.co/ogyOpjcLtR https://t.co/rWoyu6Gwv8— David French (@DavidAFrench) July 8, 2019
Earlier today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter warned Democrats people they like may get wrapped up in the case.
This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. 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. #WeSaidEnough #MeToo https://t.co/2mvskwQwW1— Christine Pelosi (@sfpelosi) July 7, 2019
