Former President Bill Clinton has a long history of not telling the truth. He’s known for telling whoppers about affairs and other episodes of sexual misconduct.
But now the former president just got caught telling a major lie about a massive sex scandal that could have major implications.
Soon after billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and charged with trafficking underage girls to his Manhattan mansion for sexual encounters, Clinton immediately tried to distance himself.
Epstein allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls” in addition to paying victims to recruit other underage girls.
In his statement, Clinton claimed that he only began socializing with Epstein in 2002 and took just four flights aboard his “Lolita Express” private plane.
Both of those claims, according to records, are false.
Flight records obtained and reviewed by Fox News indicate that Clinton was onboard the “Lolita Express” 26 times – five of those without his secret service detail.
Fox News reports:
Former President Bill Clinton dined with financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in 1995, records show—years before the interactions detailed in a statement from his office earlier this week.
That statement condemned the wealthy hedge fund manager after his indictment for alleged sex trafficking crimes was unsealed Monday. The statement said Clinton “knows nothing” about Epstein’s alleged crimes and included a timeline of Clinton’s interactions with him starting in 2002.
But 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.
Clinton lied — and he is in serious trouble over it.
The former president claimed he only traveled with Epstein a few times, but it was actually almost two dozen times.
He also ditched his Secret Service detail at least 5 times to go on trips with Epstein to go do things that were probably against the law and could have involved underage girls.
Clinton tried to release a statement to get ahead of the news, but all he did was provide more proof that he appears to have something to hide.
His lies are piling up, and many Americans want to know why Clinton is trying to conceal the truth about his relationship to Epstein.
The Clintons often skirt charges and get away with just about everything, but Epstein may reveal some bombshell information that could implicate the former president.
