More than two years after his death behind bars, the sordid story of disgraced financier Jeffery Epstein continues to add new chapters in the trial of his longtime associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
One of the most shocking recent revelations came in a report that found former President Bill Clinton traveled to India with Maxwell, who is facing charges related to sex trafficking.
“Raises more questions about the extent”
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog organization, obtained documents regarding that trip after filing a Freedom of Information Act request with the U.S. Secret Service.
Specifically, the group cited a partially redacted 2003 email chain shedding light on the situation.
One Secret Service agent reportedly responded to the digital conversation with information about “an updated manifest” from a trip from India to Los Angeles, California.
Another agent noted that the “staff/guest list could change,” going on to express gratitude to agents in Hawaii who helped carry out the travel plans.
For his part, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton reacted to the latest wrinkle in this narrative by asserting that it “raises more questions about the extent and nature of the relationship between Bill Clinton, Ghislaine Maxwell, and Jeffrey Epstein.”
“President Clinton has never been to the island”
The group has pursued these connections in previous cases, including a lawsuit seeking Secret Service records related to Clinton’s travels to a private island on which Epstein is accused of having sex with underage girls procured by Maxwell.
Of course, the former president has denied any allegation of inappropriate behavior while with Epstein.
Last year, Clinton spokesperson Angel Urena addressed assertions that Clinton traveled to Epstein’s private island, declaring: “He’d not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade. Well before his terrible crimes came to light.”
In a tweet linked to a story on the topic, Urena wrote: “The story keeps changing, the facts don’t. President Clinton has never been to the island.”
The controversy extends far beyond questions regarding whether the former president visited Epstein’s island. According to a report that surfaced last week, Epstein visited the White House on at least 17 different occasions during the Clinton administration.
