Bill Clinton LAUGHS as reporter confronts him with question about relationship with Jeffrey Epstein
The former president was campaigning in Texas on behalf of Democrat Rep Henry Cuellar in Laredo when he was confronted by a reporter
LAREDO, TEXAS: Bill Clinton refused to answer questions about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and laughed as he declared, "I think the evidence is clear."
The former president was campaigning in Texas on Monday, November 7, on behalf of Democrat Rep Henry Cuellar in Laredo and House hopeful Michelle Vallejo in the Rio Grande Valley. Reporter Juan Mendoza with Real America's Voice confronted Clinton at the Laredo rally and asked, "Mr Clinton, any comment on the allegation of your alleged connection with Jeffrey Epstein?" The 76-year-old Democrat laughed in response to the question as one of his aides appeared to hustle him away from the reporter. "I think the evidence is clear," Clinton said as he was moved away.
Mendoza posted video footage of the exchange on Twitter.

It's worth noting that Clinton has faced questions about his connection to Epstein for the longest time. The pedophile financier died in prison under mysterious circumstances in 2019 while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking of minors. The former POTUS also invited the hedge fund honcho to the White House. Logs obtained by the Daily Mail indicate Epstein visited the residence at least 17 times between 1993 and 1995.
Clinton also flew several times on Epstein's private jet dubbed 'Lolita Express' after all the underage girls who had been onboard. British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's former girlfriend, was invited to Chelsea Clinton's July 2010 wedding. The media heiress was sentenced in June to 20 years in prison for conspiring with the millionaire pedophile to lure and sexually abuse minors.
It's worth noting that Prince Andrew's ex-girlfriend Lady Victoria Hervey once said Epstein and Clinton were "like brothers." Speaking in the ITV documentary, 'Ghislaine, Prince Andrew, and the Paedophile', Hervey said, "[Bill] Clinton was definitely very close to Jeffrey. They were like brothers, you know, and he was close to Ghislaine as well." When asked about the duo's relationship with the Duke of York, Hervey said, "Prince Andrew was the son of the queen of England. Americans love that. Jeffery loved that. Bill Clinton loved that."
That said, Clinton has never publicly commented on his friendship with Epstein. The former president issued a statement following the financier's 2019 death, saying via a spokesperson that the trips on Epstein's private jet included stops in connection with the Clinton Foundation and that he was accompanied by staff, foundation supporters, and Secret Service agents on "every leg of every trip."
“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes [Epstein] pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement said. “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. Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip," the statement read, adding, "He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and he has never been to Little St James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”
