Former President Bill Clinton has just found himself in some serious hot water after he was caught in a major lie about his dealings with disgraced billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, a former friend of his who was just arrested on sex trafficking charges.
The Washington Examiner reported that flight manifests show that Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private jet, infamously known as the “Lolita Express,” six times rather than the four times he claimed to have been on it. Clinton made two of his trips on the jet without his Secret Service detail.
One of the trips made without Secret Service agents was a May 2002 trip to Asia that included stops in Japan, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, and Brunei. Three months earlier, Clinton made a trip on Epstein’s jet without his Secret Service detail from Miami, Florida, to Westchester, New York.
Clinton was caught in another lie when manifests showed no Secret Service agents were present for one of the former president’s Africa trips with Epstein. This all directly contradicts the statement that was made by Clinton’s spokesman Angel Ureña after Epstein’s arrest earlier this month.
“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. Supporters of the Foundation and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip,” Ureña said.
In reality, flight manifests show that Clinton took 27 flights on Epstein’s private jet during at least six different trips. This comes after reporter Conchita Sarnoff revealed that manifests also showed that Clinton was on Epstein’s private jet at the same time as some of his underage victims.
“I know from the pilot logs and these are pilot logs that you know were written by different pilots and at different times that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein’s 27 times,” Sarnoff said, adding that “many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many times he did not.”
“Almost every time that Clinton’s name is on the pilot logs there are underage girls there are initials and there are names of many many girls on that private plane.”
