When wealthy financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was recently arrested on fresh charges of conspiracy and sex trafficking of minors, former President Bill Clinton couldn’t release a statement fast enough disavowing any sort of alleged connections between him and the accused child molester, rapist, and trafficker.
But the claim Bill Clinton made asserting that he “knows nothing” about Epstein’s alleged activities was belied by the fact that leaked internal emails from 2016 show that the Clintons were very much aware of what Epstein has long been accused of.
Monitoring the media
In the wake of Epstein’s arrest and the former president’s disavowal, Breitbart revisited the large cache of “hacked” documents released by WikiLeaks in 2016.
These documents included internal emails from Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) that showed that the former secretary of State’s campaign studiously monitored the news media for any stories about ties between the former president and Epstein.
Emails also showed DNC staffers appearing to do the same; they would reportedly circulate media stories and social media posts that referenced both Bill Clinton and Epstein among one another.
The discovery by Breitbart suggests that not only were the Clintons and DNC well aware of what Epstein was alleged to be involved in, but both were also coordinating official responses to stories that raised uncomfortable questions, which could have presented problems for the then-presidential candidate.
Contracting Clinton’s claims
Some of the stories circulated in the internal emails were from liberal media outlets that were attempting to knock down the speculation about Bill Clinton’s ties to Epstein.
Other stories were from Fox News and independent media outlets that dug dangerously deep into the allegations in search of concrete evidence linking the dubious duo.
But it is the sheer fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC were scouring the media in search of stories about the former president and Epstein — no doubt in order to coordinate approvals or denials, depending upon the angle of the story — that undercuts the former president’s rapid disavowal of Epstein amid the billionaire’s recent arrest.
Breitbart further noted that there were several other “major problems” with Bill Clinton’s statement distancing himself from Epstein, particularly with regard to the number of flights he took on Epstein’s private plane, whether Epstein himself was on the plane as well, and whether Clinton’s Secret Service detail was in attendance too.
Suffice it to say: the Clintons already lacked any real credibility — especially when it comes to sex and women — and Bill’s denial of an association with Epstein flies in the face of what reports have already revealed.
Now, all we’re left with are more questions than answers. When will we find out the truth?
