According to an unsealed interview with the Epstein's accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, former US President Bill Clinton was among the high-profile guests at Jeffrey Epstein's private Caribbean island.
In a 2011 phone interview with the lawyer Jack Scarola, Guiffre said that Clinton arrived to the Little St. James island with Gislaine Maxwell, herself, and two other young girls from New York.
Guiffre said she remembered asking the disgraced financier what Bill Clinton was doing there. He laughed out, saying that the former President owed him a favor.
The late billionaire did not share more details with Guiffre back then. She then recalled that orgies were continually taking place at the Caribbean mansion, but she did not specify whether Clinton also participated.
Guiffre went on to say that the former President and his Vice President, Al Gore, also joined Epstein on his private plane. According to Guiffre, the top models Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum, were also aboard too at one point when she was.
According to the flight logs from the now-inactive website Gawker, Clinton had taken 11 flights to Europe, Asia, and Africa on the Lolita Express, a nickname for Epstein's private plane. Clinton's former personal assistant Sarah Kellen and Ghislaine Maxwell were also traveling with him, data showed.
Last year, Bill Clinton said in a statement that he had never visited Little St. James island. He also highlighted that he ''knew nothing'' about Epstein's crimes.
However, he confirmed that he traveled with Epstein on his private jet on four trips related to the Clinton Foundation in 2002/2003. In a letter to the federal authorities in 2007, Epstein lawyers wrote that the late financier was one of the Clinton Global Initiative's founding members, part of the Clinton Foundation. The main aim of the initiative was to connect global leaders for solving the world's biggest problems.
Despite that the Maxwell's lawyers filed an emergency motion to stop the release of the documents from a 2015 civil suit, they were unsealed on Thursday evening. As per the lawyers, the move would eliminate Maxwell's chance at a fair trial. The legal team also noted that the documents could also influence witnesses or alleged victims.
Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and Epstein's closest friend, faces six countrs of sex trafficking involving minors between 1994 and 1997. Due to pandemic, her trial will begin in July 2021. Her lawyers, Laura Menninger, said that the indictment was ''meritless.''
What do you think? Do you believe that Bill Clinton did not know anything about Epstein's crimes?
