After billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was revealed as an alleged pedophile, many of his former friends and supporters have started to create distance between them and him, with a recent example being none other than former President Bill Clinton.
President Donald Trump has also walked back lovely comments he made about the alleged rapist. It has been known for a while that the two have a friendly history, but according to Clinton, he was completely blindsided by the recent revelations.
In a public statement issued by Clinton officially, the former politician explains that he was completely unaware of the crimes being committed by Epstein.
The Democrat said he did not agree with any of the heinous acts the man had carried out.
Clinton had been known for taking trips on Epstein’s airplane, but this seems to be a minor occurrence and nothing indicative of an ongoing trend, according to official reports.
The statement read: “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,”
It went on to say: “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. 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.”
Meanwhile, the story around Epstein continues to develop, with various new reports coming out regularly.
The plane in question was pointed out as a hot spot for the alleged nefarious acts, which was part of the reason Clinton specifically addressed the airplane in his comments to the public.
Much attention is now focused on Epstein, with many calling for justice for all the women and children he had allegedly abused.
Do you think Clinton is telling the whole truth?
