Trump's Longtime Friend Jeffrey Epstein Arrested For Sex Trafficking Minors in Florida, New York

Trump's Longtime Friend Jeffrey Epstein Arrested For Sex Trafficking Minors in Florida, New York A witness reportedly saw FBI agents knock down 66-year-old Epstein's Manhattan townhouse door at roughly 5:30 p.m. local time on Saturday evening. The American billionaire, who is a registered sex offender, is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court on Monday to face charges related to allegations he sexually assaulted more than 30 girls, according to the sources. The arrest comes roughly two weeks after the Department of Justice declined to dismiss his non-prosecution agreement from 2008, despite a federal judge ruling the document illegal.

“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement reads. “In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein ’s airplane

Former President Bill Clinton said Monday he knew nothing about Jeffrey Epstein’s “terrible crimes” and tried to downplay the time he spent on the billionaire’s private plane.

In a statement issued hours after Epstein was arraigned on a sex-trafficking indictment, Clinton said he took “a total of four trips” with the financier in 2002 and 2003—to Europe, Asia and Africa.

It’s not clear how many flights were involved in each trip or how that number would square with flight logs that reportedly show Clinton on 26 flights on Epstein’s plane between 2001 and 2003. Gawker reported in 2015 that the logs also appear to show Clinton on a 2002 domestic flight between Miami and Westchester County, with Epstein also on board.

Employees on Jeffrey Epstein's private island compound say they had to stay out of sight of the financier and were never allowed in his office Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with sex trafficking on Monday, bought Little St. James Island off of St. Thomas more than two decades ago. Locals on St. Thomas called it "Pedophile Island," according to the Associated Press. And now staff from the private island have detailed what it was like working for Epstein on his numerous visits. One former worker said that staffers were required to wear black or white polos when Epstein was in town, and, according to Bloomberg: "Epstein could never catch sight of them." The former staffer said he knew of two security boxes on the island, both located in two of Epstein's offices.

Jeffrey Epstein had a little black book filled with the names and personal phone numbers of some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, from Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to actors, actresses, scientists and business tycoons. A money manager for the super-rich, Epstein had two

In his statement, Clinton said the trips 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 Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement said.

The statement said Clinton made “one brief visit” to Epstein’s apartment in New York—alongside a “staff member and his security detail”—in 2002. The two men also met at Clinton’s Harlem office “around the same time” as the apartment visit, the statement said.

“He‘s 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,” the statement read.

The statement did not mention Clinton’s financial ties to Epstein. As The Daily Beast reported, a former charity of Epstein’s, the C.O.U.Q. Foundation, donated $25,000 to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charity in 2006 and was recently listed among past and present donors on the Clinton Foundation’s website.

Trump called Epstein a ‘terrific guy’ who enjoyed ‘younger’ girls before denying relationship with him.
“It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side,” Trump said about Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire financier charged with sex trafficking, in a 2002 article in New York Magazine.
