A former Formula One racer alleges that he saw Bill Clinton at a party hosted by Jeffrey Epstein.
According to the New York Post, Eddie Irvine claimed in a recent interview that the former president was present at a party hosted by Epstein, the multimillionaire financier and convicted pedophile who was set to face sex trafficking charges before his untimely death in August 2019.
Irvine: Bill was there
Clinton, for his part, has long been trying to fight off accusations that he was closer to Jeffrey Epstein than he would like many to believe. As the Post noted, recently released court documents have suggested that Clinton was present on Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St. James, where young girls were reportedly trafficked for Epstein and company’s sexual escapades.
Now, Irvine says that isn’t the only place Clinton and Epstein met up. Speaking with a British news outlet, the racing star said he saw Clinton at a party hosted by Epstein, but didn’t think anything of it at the time.
“I remember him being around. I saw all these people around,” Irvine said, according to the Post.
As Fox Business notes, Clinton has also been accused of making repeated appearances on Epstein’s private airplane, the so-called “Lolita Express.”
“I had no idea”
A spokesperson for Clinton has released multiple statements denying that the former president had close ties to Epstein and arguing that any interaction they may have had was limited.
“[Clinton has] not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida,” Angel Ureña told Newsweek in a recent statement.
But whether the former president wants to admit it or not, it looks like the walls are closing in.
Two witnesses have now come forward to say Clinton and Epstein were spotted together at social events: Irvine and Virginia Roberts Giuffre, whose recent deposition revived allegations of the 42nd president was often spotted at Little St. James.
Irvine, for his part, says he had no idea what was happening when he attended Epstein’s parties.
“I had no idea about that, the providing of underage girls,” the racing star said, according to the New York Post. “I remember seeing her [Giuffre] around a few times, but I would have said she was 20 by that stage. I never saw young girls.”
