Prince Andrew reportedly spent nearly a week at alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s New York mansion two years after he was convicted of having sex with countless underage girls.
According to The Daily Mail U.K., Andrew, the Duke of York, has attempted to downplay his apparent long term friendship with the alleged pedophile by suggesting in a statement that he wasn’t aware” of Epstein abusing underage girls for many years.
Andrew claimed that he never suspected Epstein was a pedophile when he mingled with him.
“During the time I knew him, I saw him infrequently and probably no more than only once or twice a year. I have stayed in a number of his residences. At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.”
New evidence in the case appears to suggest that Andrew spent a week at Epstein’s home in 2010 – two years after Epstein was convicted of having sex with a child.
In a series of pictures and videos released last week, Andrew can be seen in Epstein’s “House of Horrors” on December 6, 2010, saying goodbye to a young brunette woman.
The photo apparently made the Royal Family very nervous.
The Daily Mail reports:
It prompted first a statement from Buckingham Palace and yesterday another from the Duke himself in which he desperately tried to draw a line under the affair.
The Duke admitted he and Epstein could have potentially met up to 20 times but that ‘at no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction’.
Epstein also threw a party at his home on December 2, 2010, for the Duke, who was last seen at the property five days later. Last night, Buckingham Palace declined to discuss details of his visit.
Since Epstein’s arrest in June on sex trafficking charges, the Duke has been trying to distance himself from the alleged pedophile.
In fact, Andrew admitted that he stayed at “a number of [Epstein’s] residences,” but did not specify which.
The scandal is so big that Buckingham Palace also declined to answer any questions about Andrew’s connection with Epstein and alleged involvement in his child sex ring with underage girls.
While the Department of Justice are still looking into the alleged suicide, investigators will likely turn their attention to those who were closely connected to Epstein.
The Clinton family could find themselves in hot water given their disturbing connection to Epstein, which dates all the way back to when President Clinton was in office in the mid-1990s.
Both of those claims, according to records, are false.
Flight records indicate that Clinton was onboard the “Lolita Express” 26 times – five of those without his secret service detail.
In fact, the Clinton family is so close to Epstein that one photo from Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding likely has the former first daughter furious.
While Andrew is currently in hot water, so is Bill Clinton.
