(Tea Party PAC) – According to newly released records, in1995, President Bill Clinton dined with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with child trafficking in a Southern District of New York court on Monday.
Why is it important that the former POTUS dined with Epstein over 20 years ago?
Because it contradicts the statement that Clinton made on Monday following Epstein’s arrest.
According to a statement released by a spokesperson for Clinton, the former president said that he “knows nothing” about Epstein’s crimes, and claimed that his relationship with Epstein began in 2002.
Not so, according to evidence obtained by Fox News, who reported:
…according to a story published back in March 1995 by the Palm Beach Post, then-President Clinton attended a “three-hour dinner” at the time with a “very select group of people” at the Palm Beach home of business magnate Ron Perelman. The diverse group included Epstein — as well as singer Jimmy Buffet, actor Don Johnson, then-co-chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and others.
“Joining Clinton for a three-hour dinner was a very select group of people, some of whom, according to one Democratic Party source, gave as much as $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee for the privilege of dining with the president,” the report said.
The nearly 25-year-old report, reviewed by Fox News, indicates that Clinton and Epstein interacted years before the instances detailed in the former president’s statement this week.
This was the statement released by Clinton on Monday:
“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.”
Epstein was arrested on Saturday aboard his private jet as he returned to New York from France.
On Monday, prosecutors unsealed an indictment against the financier, accusing him of sexually abusing dozens of young girls for years at one of the biggest mansions in Manhattan, paying them hundreds of dollars cash each time he abused them, as well as hundreds more to recruit other victims.
Clinton’s claim that his Secret Service had been with him during every trip was already known to be false, as according to longstanding reports he ditched his security detail on more than one occasion to fly aboard the “Lolita Express,” Epstein’s private jet.
In May of 2016, Fox News reported that Clinton traveled with Epstein on the jet at least 26 times, leaving behind his detail often.
