How did Mark Middleton die? Bill Clinton advisor who let Epstein into WH SEVEN times dies at 59
Mark Middleton is believed to have helped build a good relationship between the former president and Jeffrey Epstein
One of Bill Clinton's former advisors died at the age of 59 on Saturday, May 7. Mark Middleton had worked in Clinton’s White House in the 1990s as a special advisor to him. He also acted as a finance director on his Presidential campaign. Reportedly, Middleton was the one who helped build a good relationship between the former president and the convicted sex trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein, to whom he gave access to the presidential residence seven times out of at least 17 times he came there.
Not just that, it has been said that Middleton also flew on Epstein’s infamous Lolita Express. His family in a now-deleted Facebook post for their air conditioning company, Middleton Heat & Air, announced his death: “The Middleton Family is saddened to share that Mark Middleton passed away this weekend.”
They also added, “The Middleton family has lost an inspiring and dedicated leader, as well as a son, brother, husband, and father. Mark leaves behind a company that he helped build from the ground up alongside his family and was proud to run for the last 25 years. No words can express our sadness over this loss or our gratitude for your support and prayers during this time.” However, the family did not reveal the cause of his death.
Middleton left behind his wife Rhea and two daughters — Lindsay and Lauren. He is also survived by his father Charles Middleton, mother Anita Middleton-Kellar, sister Sandra Leeann Middleton-Marshall, and brother Steven Middleton. The city of Bryant issued a statement in his remembrance, “Mark has been an avid supporter of this community for many years. He has invested not only in the Bryant Parks System but also in the quality of play for hundreds of kids, who over time he sponsored in various recreational leagues. Our hearts go out to his family, and extended family, at Middleton Heat and Air.”
According to reports, Middleton was lately living a normal life in Little Rock, Arkansas, away from the power and position that he enjoyed in the 1990s. At that time, he also served as an assistant to Thomas Franklin "Mack" McLarty, who was Clinton's White House Chief of Staff. However, in February 1995, he left the government service after being accused of presenting himself as a global deal-maker. Also, a 1996 probe against him revealed that he “had abused his access to impress business clients and he was barred from the executive mansion without senior approval,” The Daily Mail reported.
“Mark was trying to make himself look bigger than he was. He was trying to make himself out like he had more power than he really did in the White House. Mark knew that Epstein was managing the money of Les Wexner,” a source told DailyMail.com as they went on to add: “The year 1994 there were midterm elections, Clinton needed money and Mark thought he could get some of Wexner's money. Mark wanted to set himself up as the guy who could bring in those kinds of big donors.”
