Did Hillary Clinton gift 'chief of staff' job to Ghislaine Maxwell’s nephew after husband Bill's trip with Epstein?
Maxwell's nephew Alexander Djerassi worked as 'chief of staff' in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs from May 2011 to June 2012 while Hillary was Secretary of State
Since Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest in early July, several reports have claimed her close ties to Democratic power couple Bill and Hillary Clinton. A few days ago, The Daily Mail published pictures of Bill Clinton getting a neck massage from Chauntae Davies, one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, while he was on a trip to Africa with the disgraced financier in 2002. Maxwell was also in the infamous trip and she reportedly was the one who encouraged Davies to massage the former president’s neck.
Now, a new claim has been made as the celebrity tabloid OK! Magazine has reported that Hillary Clinton “gifted” a job to Maxwell’s nephew at US State Department and gave him “special treatment”. Alexander Djerassi was given the job as soon as he got out of college in 2007. As his first job, he worked as a “Staff Assistant” from May 2009 to June 2012. Djerassi has also worked as 'chief of staff' in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs from May 2011 to June 2012. At the time, Hillary was Secretary of State, The Sun reported.
However, Djerassi’s friend has denied these claims and told The Daily Beast that Maxwell did not introduce Djerassi to the former first lady or helped him in getting a job. “These are false allegations against a talented and qualified public servant,” the friend added.
The Yale and Princeton graduate was also a nonresident associate at a think tank – the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. His bio on the site read: “Alexander Djerassi was a nonresident associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where his research focused on Tunisia and U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East and North Africa.”
It added: “From 2009 to 2012, Djerassi was chief of staff and special assistant in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, covering U.S. relations with Arab states, Israel, and Iran. He worked on matters relating to democratization and civil society in the Arab world, the Arab uprisings, and Israeli-Palestinian peace. Djerassi has served as a U.S. representative to the Friends of Libya conferences, Friends of the Syrian People conferences, US-GCC Strategic Coordination Forum, and several UN General Assemblies.”
However, Djerassi’s role at the State Department was not his only association with the Clintons, according to his LinkedIn profile, while he also served as ‘Campaign Policy Associate’ from September 2007 to June 2008. “Researched and drafted memos, briefings, and policy papers for candidate, senior staff, and news media on wide range of domestic and foreign policy issues. Prepared for more than 20 debates,” his job duties described on the platform read.
MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) has previously reported that Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s victims, claimed that Bill visited Epstein’s "paedo island" after leaving the White House. The 36-year-old accuser also said that the 74-year-old stayed at the estate with “two young girls” from New York. “I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well he owes me a favor,” Giuffre said.
