Those old enough to remember Hogan’s Heroes likely know exactly what Bill Clinton’s staff said regarding Jeffrey Epstein following the billionaire sex offender’s arrest in New Jersey last week. For he younger readers, here’s a clue about the former President’s reaction:
Clinton, who has been attached to Epstein for two decades, has long denied speculation that he participated in rumored “orgies” at Epstein’s private getaway spot where he allegedly trafficked underage girls to have sex with his cronies.
According to Fox News, Clinton is playing the Sergeant Schultz card:
Bill Clinton “knows nothing” about the “terrible crimes” linked to Jeffrey Epstein, the former president’s spokesman said Monday, in Clinton’s first statement after new sex-trafficking charges were lobbed against the wealthy financier.
An indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed Monday morning against Epstein, the wealthy and politically connected financier who pleaded not guilty during his initial appearance in a New York City federal court. Prosecutors allege Epstein, the 66-year-old wealthy hedge fund manager arrested on Saturday, preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14.
“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 said. “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.”
Documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions. Separetely, claims in court showed that President Trump may have flown on the jet at least once, as well.
It’s too early to speculate who, if anyone, will be implicated as a result of Epstein’s arrest, but rumors of powerful men being involved in Epstein’s sex crimes does not bode well for a former president attached to prior sexual misconduct.
