Bill Clinton is expected to be named as “John Doe 36” in nearly 200 pages of documents relating to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to several outlets. ABC News was the first to break the story and point out that there is no indication of illegal behavior by the former president in these sealed records. The documents are likely to show links to Epstein for some individuals, and also an array of related information.
These files are set to be released following an order by a Manhattan federal judge in an already-settled defamation lawsuit brought by Epstein accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, back in 2015. Giuffre sued Epstein’s madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently in prison. Clinton’s presence in these records is associated with Giuffre’s legal team’s attempts to subpoena him to testify about his connection to Epstein. However, the early reports emphasize that these documents do not accuse Clinton of any criminal activity.
The former president’s office has reiterated a 2019 statement saying that Clinton “has never been accused of any wrongdoing,” and admitting that he traveled with Epstein on four occasions, without knowing about Epstein’s criminal activities. A Fox News analysis indicates that Clinton actually flew on Epstein’s private jet, known as the “Lolita Express,” 26 times. Former top aide Doug Band has claimed that Clinton made a trip to Epstein’s island in 2003. Furthermore, there are records that Epstein visited the White House at least 17 times between 1993 and 1995.
Recent talk about Epstein’s death by suicide has been refueled by former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who questioned the circumstances surrounding the sex offender’s death. Carlson has suggested that Epstein may have been murdered, citing the dearth of records from the night in question and the evident failure of the security systems at the prison.
Furthermore, Representative Tim Burchett claimed in a recent interview that there are members of Congress who have been blackmailed into withholding information about Epstein. He also suggested that Epstein was killed due to his connections to Bill Clinton.
The upcoming release of the Jeffrey Epstein documents could potentially reveal other associates and co-conspirators, including individuals like Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Prince Andrew, who have been linked to Epstein in the past without necessary proof of criminal activity.
