Bill Clinton was caught telling one lie about this awful sex crime
Bill Clinton was hoping this day would never come.
One of his ugliest scandals is now in the public eye.
And Bill Clinton was caught telling one lie about this awful sex crime.
Federal officials arrested billionaire Jeffrey Epstein on charges he trafficked underage girls to his New York apartment.
Epstein’s relationship with Clinton was a topic of conversation in the 2016 election.
After Epstein’s arrest Clinton immediately released a statement distancing himself from Epstein claiming he only only traveled four times on Epstein’s private plane.
Former President Bill Clinton distanced himself on Monday from Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire financier and former donor who was arrested for child sex trafficking over the weekend.
Clinton, who has taken a lower public profile since the 2016 presidential race, issued a statement through his press secretary, Angel Ureña, claiming to know “nothing about the terrible crimes” Epstein is purported to have committed.
“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement reads. “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 denotes that “staff, supporters of the Foundation,” and the former president’s Secret Service detail were along on “every leg” of those trips.” Fox News, however, reported in May 2016 that Clinton went on at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s plane — the “Lolita Express” — between 2001 and 2003, according to flight logs from the Federal Aviation Administration. Listed as the destination for those trips were exotic locales like the Azores, Singapore, Brunei, Norway, and Russia, among others.
This was classic Clinton word parsing.
Flight records showed Clinton traveled 26 times on Epstein’s plane which was known as the “Lolita Express.”
Clinton’s team tried to disguise this fact by claiming Clinton only traveled four times with Epstein but that there were multiple stops on those flights.
This immediately led Americans to winder what Clinton was so eager to hide.
