As expected Bill Clinton started off his day denying knowing anything about the child sex trafficking that Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and charged with.
A spokesman for former President Bill Clinton issued the following statement on Monday.

“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 read. “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,” it continued. “He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
Fox News reported in 2016 that Clinton went on at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s “Lolita Express,” according to Federal Aviation Administration records.
With the five-leg Asia trip between May 22 and May 25, 2002, no Secret Service agent was listed as having traveled with Clinton. However, at least one of the names on the manifest, that of Chauntae Davis, also appeared in the Epstein’s little black book under an entry for “Massage- California”. That was just one of six lists of massage girls Epstein kept in various locales, with a total of 160 names around the globe, many of them underage victims.
Epstein, who is a registered sex offender, was arrested last week for allegedly sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York from 2002 to 2005. Epstein was able to avoid 10 years of jail time after making a deal with federal prosecutors in Florida, including now-now-Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, for charges of sexually abusing minors some as young as 14 and for having some of his victims recruit other girls.
