According to Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper in their soon-to-be-published book, A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein, Bill Clinton had an affair with socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of helping recruit underage victims for notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Writing in the New York Post on May 27, 2020, Goldman and Halper claim that Clinton — who denies cheating on wife Hillary Clinton with Maxwell — engaged in “romps” with Maxwell during overseas trips on Epstein’s private plane, a customized Boeing 727 that’s since become known as the “Lolita Express.”
Maxwell was “a constant presence” at Bill’s side during these trips, and was the primary reason Bill let Epstein ferry him around the world. A source who witnessed the “relationship” said in an interview: “[Bill] and Ghislaine were getting it on. That’s why he was around Epstein—to be with her.”
The source explained that reporters have been missing the point about the Clinton- Epstein relationship by focusing on Epstein’s sex crimes. “[Clinton’s] stupid but not an idiot,” the source says, dismissing the idea that the ex- president was sexually involved with children.
Clinton’s primary interest in Epstein was Maxwell. The source said, “You couldn’t hang out with her without being with him [Epstein]. Clinton just used him like everything else.”
But the relationship between Clinton and Maxwell was not confined to these overseas junkets:
- In New York City, Clinton on multiple occasions visited Maxwell’s private townhome at 116 East Sixty-fifth Street, an $11 million pad. She had purchased it in 2000 for a mere $4.95 million. The coziness between Bill and Maxwell even drew notice in New York social circles. The couple were spotted dining together at the Madison Avenue Italian restaurant Nello, according to a 2002 New York magazine article, which described Maxwell as a “man-eater”. When Clinton went stag to a New York education charity gala in late 2001 — Hillary declined to attend — Maxwell was reportedly at his side.
- The relationship also carried over to the Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation. Maxwell became somewhat of a fixture at these events. In fact, it was there where she was served court papers about her participation in Epstein’s abuse. Journalist Conchita Sarnoff recalls in her book, TrafficKing: “[W]hile attending the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, at the end of an Indian summer, in September 2009, a process server walked through the packed lobby of the Sheraton Hotel…and served Ghislaine Maxwell papers for a deposition. Maxwell…was huddled in a small group talking to other guests…. [The server] called out her name and…with so many people surrounding her, Maxwell was unsuspecting. She confirmed her identity and he served her notice. The deposition was in relation to Epstein’s sexual abuse case…. Ironically, photographs of Maxwell taken by a private investigator who accompanied the process server showed Maxwell receiving notice while standing beneath a human trafficking banner. Human trafficking was the Conference’s theme at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative…. Maxwell never appeared at the deposition claiming, the day prior to her testimony she had to immediately return to England to care for her dying mother. At the time of that trip,…the elder Mrs. Maxwell was not gravely ill. Not long after the deposition was scheduled, Maxwell was spotted again in New York. As a British subject there was nothing the attorneys could do to force her to take the deposition.””
- Maxwell even was as brazen as attending Chelsea Clinton’s wedding on July 31, 2010 at the former Astor estate in Rhinebeck, New York.
Bill Clinton has denied visiting Little Saint James, Epstein’s private “orgy island” in the US Virgin Islands, but a new Netflix docu-series, “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” features an interview with the island’s former longtime IT worker, Steve Scully, who claims to have seen Clinton and Epstein lounging on the porch of Epstein’s sprawling villa at a time when there were no other guests present.
