Jeffrey Epstein visited Bill Clinton at the White House 17 times, including TWICE in one day: Report
White House visitation logs show that the convicted financier visited the Clinton White House twice on the same day three different times
Disgraced pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein visited the White House at least 17 times in the early years of former President Bill Clinton’s administration, a new report suggested on Thursday, December 2.
Visitor logs that were obtained by the Daily Mail, from the Clinton Presidential Library under a series of FOIA requests, showed that the convicted financier, who died from an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell in 2019, even visited the Clinton White House twice on the same day three different times. The first visit to the Executive mansion began in just a month after Clinton's inauguration in January 1993. The majority of Epstein's visits stated that he was going to the West Wing, meaning there was a strong likelihood he was meeting Clinton.
While Epstein's crimes did not become public knowledge until his arrest in 2006, the visits to the White House would have occurred around the time period that his alleged girlfriend and confidant Ghislaine Maxwell is accused of recruiting underage girls for him. Maxwell, 59, is accused of being closely linked to Epstein's sex abuse allegations between 1994 and 2004. She is now on trial in New York City for her alleged role in procuring minor girls for her friend to assault.
Bill Clinton's friendship with Jeffrey Epstein
Clinton's friendship with Epstein was already a scandal that has now been dredged up again with the new report. Epstein is known to have flown the former president on his private jet - known as the 'Lolita Express' - dozens of times after he left office, including once in 2002 when the ex-president was photographed with one of Epstein’s current rape accusers. Maxwell also attended the wedding of Clinton’s daughter Chelsea back in 2010.
Speaking to New York magazine in 2002, Clinton said: "Jeffrey is both a highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist with a keen sense of global markets and an in-depth knowledge of twenty-first-century science. I especially appreciated his insights and generosity during the recent trip to Africa to work on democratization, empowering the poor, citizen service and combating HIV/AIDS." Clinton and Epstein were so close that the financier had email addresses and 21 numbers for Clinton in his 'black book' of contacts. However, when Epstein hanged himself in jail after his arrest in 2019, Clinton denied knowing anything "about the terrible crimes" his friend carried out.
Epstein's White House visitations
One of Epstein's visits took place on September 29, 1993, when he and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell were photographed alongside Clinton after the financier donated $10,000 to help renovate the building. It is unclear if Epstein actually met or interacted with Clinton during his other visits. It is known that for at least a few of Epstein’s trips there the former president wasn’t in the building.
The logs show that Epstein first visited the White House on February 25, 1993, a little more than a month after Clinton first took office. During that visit, his destination was listed as “WW” — the short form for West Wing – and his invitation was issued by “Rubin," which could mean former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who would’ve been director of the National Economic Council at the time. As per the records, Epstein was admitted for his visit at 9:19 a.m. on the day and Clinton had plans to meet with Rubin at 1:45 p.m., according to the president's daily schedule. It has not been confirmed if Epstein attended the meeting. A spokeswoman for Rubin told Daily Mail, "To the best of Mr. Rubin's recollection he never met or spoke with Mr. Epstein."
Epstein is listed on logs three more days in 1993. Epstein returned to the White House 12 times in 1994, including four visits in less than a week in April.
