Previously convicted pedophile and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein died of an apparent suicide in his New York jail cell on Saturday, less than 24 hours after the court-ordered release of damning and explosive court documents related to a 2015 lawsuit filed by one of Epstein’s alleged underage victims.
Those documents cast an incredibly incriminating light on a number of high-profile individuals alleged to have taken part in Epstein’s disgusting and illegal activities in the early-to-mid-2000s — including former President Bill Clinton.
Citing the unsealed court documents and sworn depositions, reports alleged that there is evidence to suggest that Clinton had traveled at least once — if not multiple times — to a small Carribean island owned by Epstein that has been dubbed “Pedophile Island,” in reference to the disturbing activities said to have transpired there.
The lawsuit was filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Guiffre, who asserted in a 2016 deposition that she had been made a sex slave by Epstein and was accordingly forced to have sex with a number of high-profile individuals during her time in Epstein’s “service.”
The suit was actually filed against a woman named Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been described as a close friend of Epstein’s and the so-called “madam” who managed and recruited his alleged stable of sex slaves.
Testimony places Clinton on Epstein’s island
Guiffre claimed in her deposition that Maxwell had informed her on one occasion that she had used a black helicopter owned by Epstein to pick up Clinton at the airport upon his arrival on the island, though Guiffre made clear that she hadn’t personally witnessed that supposed event.
However, Guiffre also claimed to have flown on Epstein’s private jet — dubbed the “Lolita Express” — with Clinton on more than one occasion, and noted that while there had been U.S. Secret Service agents on the board the aircraft as well, the agents remained out of sight and weren’t in the vicinity of herself, Clinton, Epstein, and anybody else who may also have been on the plane.
Still, Guiffre asserted that she had never had sex with the former president, nor had she witnessed any other girls having sex with him either.
Bill, what say you?
Regardless, Guiffre’s sworn testimony appears to be at odds with some of the details of an official statement released by Clinton in the immediate aftermath of Epstein’s July 6 arrest on conspiracy and sex trafficking charges.
That statement, obviously intended to create distance between Clinton and Epstein, claimed that Clinton had never once traveled to Epstein’s island in the Carribean and had only met with the multimillionaire a handful of times.
But based on Guiffre’s deposition — as well as the work of independent journalists who have placed Clinton on Epstein’s private jet dozens of times — that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Despite the reports of Epstein’s unexpected suicide, it has been made clear by the Department of Justice (DOJ) that the investigation into his alleged wrongdoing will continue. Indeed, while Epstein himself may no longer be able to spill his secrets, those who were allegedly involved in his scandalous behavior with underage girls could still soon face a reckoning of their own.
