Former President Bill Clinton’s political opponents are taking a keen interest in his “possible connection” with the billionaire Democratic fundraiser, hedge fund manager, and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, 61, and the new civil lawsuit brought by Virginia Roberts against the billionaire alleging that he pimped her out to Britain’s Prince Andrew when she was only 17-years-old.
Recently, the deputy press secretary for the Republican Party, Raffi Williams, tweeted, “Woman Suing Jeffrey Epstein For Sexual Slavery Claimed Bill Clinton Must Have Known.”
Several conservative news outlets, including Fox News, the Washington Times and the Drudge Report have carried news reports insinuating a “possible connection” between Bill Clinton and Epstein. The Drudge Report could not contain its excitement about the prospects of a new Clinton sex scandal, coming out with a sensational tweet, “Bubba and the Palm Beach Pedophile.”
Epstein is accused of running a sex trafficking ring for influential friends, including Prince Andrew. According to Roberts, the billionaire Epstein forced her into sex slavery and paid her to provide sex services for Prince Andrew on three separate occasions.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports that details emerging from court filings related to the civil lawsuit reveal Clinton’s relationship with the Epstein, raising questions about how much he knew about the alleged underage prostitution ring.
Documents related to the lawsuit, according to the Smoking Gun, reveal Clinton visited Epstein’s Caribbean island several times from 2002 to 2005. Epstein reportedly kept underage girls as sex slaves and organized orgies for his friends on the island. Clinton also reportedly often flew with Epstein aboard his private jet.
The court filings also reveal that lawyers who gained access to Epstein’s electronic phone directory found that it included “email addresses of Clinton along with 21 phone numbers for him, including those for his assistant (Doug Band).” But there was nothing in the documents to suggest that Clinton was involved in the underage sex activities on the island.
The lawsuit notes that Clinton had severed ties with Epstein after allegations surfaced in 2005 about his activities. Epstein was arrested in 2005, when police received complaints from parents that he paid a 14-year-old $300 to provide sex services at his Palm Beach Florida mansion.
“Cops surreptitiously collected the trash from in front of Epstein’s Palm Beach home. The refuse included documents with the names of some of his many underage masseuses, as well as an Amazon.com invoice for the purchase of sex slave books like ‘SlaveCraft: Roadmaps for Erotic Servitude–Principles, Skills and Tools,’ ‘Training with Miss Abernathy: A Workbook for Erotic Slaves and Their Owners,’ and ‘SM 101: A Realistic Introduction.'”
Due to what appeared reluctance of authorities to pursue the case, the ex-banker got off lightly with a sentence of 18 months in jail in 2008, as part of a controversial deal in which he pleaded to guilty to a single charge of soliciting prostitution.
Following his conviction and sentence, some of Epstein’s powerful friends, including Clinton, severed ties with him, but some, including Britain’s Prince Andrew, maintained the relationship.
Yet Clinton’s opponents are watching the latest developments keenly because new information could emerge that could get Clinton mired in a new sordid sex scandal at a time that his wife Hillary Clinton appears to be preparing for a White House run.
And Clinton’s case is certainly not helped by a recent photo showing him posing with two well known Nevada Bunny Brothel prostitutes, Barbie Girl and Ava Adora.
The Smoking Gun expressed, provocatively, expectations that “Bubba” could be subpoenaed in the case or get mired in a new sex scandal, writing, “Now that Prince Andrew has found himself ensnared in the sleazy sex slave story of wealthy degenerate Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton can’t be too far behind.”
The question already being asked openly, after Prince Andrew and Epstein’s lawyer Alan Dershowitz were accused of having sex with underage girls, is how much does Clinton know about the goings-on on the billionaire’s property? Has he helped to cover up sexual crimes by keeping quiet about what he knew, and to what extent was he involved himself?
Media reports say that Robert’s lawyers had considered subpoenaing Clinton because he “might well be a source of relevant information and efforts to obtain discovery from him were reasonably calculated to lead to admissible evidence.”
Some media reports claim that Hillary Clinton is furious with her husband after his name came up in connection with the latest sex scandal. According to Page Six, Hillary looked “peevish” at the funeral of Mario Cuomo and “stormed” past her husband who appeared to have been waiting for her by the church door where the funeral ceremony took place.
“Talk in Washington is that Hillary is furious with Bill about all this new information on Jeffrey Epstein.”
While the reports appear based mostly on speculation, Hillary could be expected to be upset that her husband’s name is being mentioned in connection with yet another sex scandal. Fears will linger in the Clinton political camp that new revelations about Bill Clinton’s links with Epstein could scuttle Hillary’s run for president in 2016.
