Bill Clinton’s attempts to distance himself from convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein have taken yet another blow – after a Daily Beast investigation reveals that the financier – who came highly recommended by Lynn Forester de Rothschild – visited the Clinton White House multiple times.
As early as 1993, records show, Epstein donated $10,000 to the White House Historical Association and attended a donors’ reception hosted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Around the same time, according to a source familiar with the connection, Epstein visited presidential aide Mark Middleton several times at the White House. Two years later, businesswoman Lynn Forester de Rothschild wrote a personal letter to Clinton thanking him for their talk about the financier. –Daily Beast
On July 8, the former president sought to distance himself from Epstein, claiming that the two crossed paths just six times beginning in 2002; “four flights on the billionaire’s private jet, a single trip to his Harlem office, and one “brief visit” to his New York apartment, all with staff and security detail in tow,” per the Beast.
“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,” Clinton spokesperson, Angel Ureña, told the Beast. “Any suggestion to the contrary is both factually inaccurate and irresponsible.”
Clinton’s denial flies in the face of flight logs from Epstein’s now-sold ‘Lolita Express’ 727 jet at least 26 times.
When the president released his initial statement on Epstein, he did not explain the multiple other trips he appears to have taken on the financier’s plane—including one flight to Westchester with Epstein, his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell, and an “unnamed female.” –Daily Beast
And according to the Beast, “Clinton also failed to mention the intimate 1995 fundraising dinner at the Palm Beach home of Revlon mogul Ron Perelman, where Clinton hobnobbed with the likes of Epstein, Don Johnson, and Jimmy Buffett. (Nearby, at Epstein’s own Palm Beach mansion, the money man allegedly abused hundreds of underage girls.)”
While Politico claimed in a piece last week that the Clintons and Epstein connected through Epstein’s longtime confidant and alleged procurer of young women – Ghislaine Maxwell, after Clinton left office, documents in the Clinton Library attest to much earlier links.
In late September of 1993, Bill and Hillary Clinton hosted a reception for supporters who had contributed to recent White House renovations. The nearly $400,000 overhaul—which included new gold draperies and a 13-color woven rug for the Oval Office—was funded entirely by donations to the White House Historical Association, a private organization that helps preserve and promote the White House as a historical monument.
The reception took place at the White House residence from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., according to a copy of the president’s daily schedule. White House Social Secretary Ann Stock—who appears in Epstein’s little black book of phone numbers—was listed as the point of contact. According to multiple attendees, the evening included an intimate tour of the newly refurbished residence, followed by a receiving line with the president and first lady. Dessert was served in the East Room, where the couple thanked everyone for attending and announced the Committee for the Preservation of the White House.
Guests for the event, according to the invitation list, included the journalist and philanthropist Barbara Goldsmith, heiress Jane Engelhard, political consultant Cynthia Friedman, and “Mr Jeffrey Epstein and Ms. Ghislaine Maxwell.” Epstein and Maxwell do not appear on the ‘regret list,’ and there is a letter ‘A’ next to both of their names, indicating they planned to attend. A press release from the event, put out by Hillary Clinton’s office, lists Epstein as a White House Historical Association donor. –Daily Beast
Meanwhile, Clinton’s college friend A. Paul Prosperi visited Epstein at least 20 times while he was in the Palm Beach County jail after pleading guilty to procuring an underage prostitute in 2008. Prosperi was also present at a 1995 Perelman fundraiser at which both Clinton and Epstein were present.
Another Clinton connection with Epstein comes through White House aide Mark E. Middleton – a friend of Clinton’s from his beginnings in Arkansas who joined the administration in 1993 as special assistant to Chief of Staff Mack McClarty (another Arkansas insider, per the Beast). Middleton would rise to the level of “Deputy to the Counselor” in 1994.
Over that same time period, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Beast, Middleton met with Epstein in the White House at least three times. It is unclear what they discussed, or for how long. Middleton did not respond to repeated calls and emails for comment, or to a reporter who visited his home in Arkansas.
Middleton and Epstein also appear to have shared a famous friend in common. Donald Trump—who once called Epstein a “terrific guy”—sent Middleton a signed copy of his book, The Art of the Deal, while the lawyer was working in the White House. The inscription read, “To Mark — Best wishes. Your mom is the best.”
Hobnobbing with businessmen like Epstein and Trump was part and parcel of Middleton’s White House job, according to a 1999 report from the House Committee on Government Reform. (“In the course of his duties, Middleton was in contact with many prominent business people and contributors to the President,” the report states.) But it also got the lawyer in trouble with the administration once he left. –Daily Beast
In 1995, Lynn Forester de Rothschild writes “Dear Mr. President: It was a pleasure to see you recently at Senator Kennedy’s house. There was too much to discuss and too little time. Using my fifteen seconds of access to discuss Jeffrey Epstein and currency stabilization, I neglected to talk to you about a topic near and dear to my heart. Namely, affirmative action and the future.”
Of note, former Epstein attorney and pal Alan Dershowitz previously said that Forester de Rothschild introduced him to Epstein at a party on Martha’s Vineyard for Lord Rothschild in the summer of 1996.
“He was feisty, he was utterly politically incorrect,” said Dershowitz in a recent interview with New York magazine. “He was interesting to be with.”
He was also sexually molesting underage girls.
Epstein’s days are numbered; a SMALL number. The first attempt at ARKANCIDE failed but I’ll bet the second one won’t miss. The Clintons can reach out to anyone at anytime, even in a jail cell. Then there’s still the matter of the ‘black book’. Someone said right after the 2016 election that if the Clintons fall a lot of others go down the toilet with them. I can just imagine how much pressure the Clintons are under to do something about Epstein.
when are the tribunals.

If we spiritualize everything around us — that is to say, interpret it in a superstitious way — mundane acts, done by mundane people, are a source of spiritual power. And, I am asking what happens if you exorcise a country of it’s patron deity.
In my private interpretation of Biblical allegories, I think of Mystery Babylon and the Jezebel and Lilith Spirit as a madame.
I think of taking what belongs to another person — ie. Naboth’s orchard — and playing the middle man. Striking up a bargain with what belongs to another person is how I think of the merchant or reseller nation of all nations.
I wanna know how clownwolrd gets his shill comments posted immediately but mine show up three days later. Mods here suck like clownworld making overtime.
It has be reported Epstein is worth 559 million, yet it seems no one can say for sure how he earned it. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out he made much of his fortune setting up prominent people, and then blackmailing them for millions of dollars. Then some of the useful subjects were blackmailed again by Israeli operatives to exert undue influence in Amer. political and policy matters.
Why didn’t “our friends” the Israelis, notify Amer. authorities what they apparently knew about Epstein’s sordid business? Or even more so, why did prominent Jooish individuals continue to protect Epstein?
The public will hear many details, but the true scope and magnitude of this will never be known publicly. The public will only hear enough to mollify their base curiosity.
It isn’t just about his perverted activities and carnal proclivities, that is just a very tiny part of it. What it is could lead to is vastly larger. If allowed to undergo investigation as it deserves, it would likely uncover a level and type of corruption that destroys govt’s. and nations, and crimes if exposed would cause revolt of citizens. This has been going on a long time, now the scale of it has gotten so huge and so monstrously vile it cannot be hidden. Treason, high crimes, astounding secrets, and betrayal by “friendly” allies, await to be exposed.
Epstein should get at the least 45 years in prison. Giving Epstein another chance at freedom sends the completely wrong message and puts youth at great risk and this is why we need our justice system to make an example out of Epstein by giving him the maximum sentence possible.
Now more than ever, children need your protection from predatory criminals who turn the vulnerability and desperation of their victims into big business. Human trafficking — the buying and selling of people for exploitative purposes — is on the rise according to a new study of 142 countries just released by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
“Human trafficking has taken on horrific dimensions as armed groups and terrorists use it to spread fear and gain victims to offer as incentives to recruit new fighters,” says Yury Fedotov, Executive Director of UNODC, citing child soldiers, forced labour and sexual slavery as examples.

Epstein should get at the least 45 years in prison. Giving him a plea deal of only 5 years sends the completely wrong message and puts youth at great risk.
Epstein’s victims were as young as 14 at the time he abused them, and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Moreover, EPSTEIN knew that many of his victims were under 18, including because, in some instances, victims expressly told him they were underage.
JEFFREY EPSTEIN, 66, is charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors, which carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison, and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Between 2002 through 2005, EPSTEIN sexually exploited and abused dozens of underage girls by enticing them to engage in sex acts with him in exchange for money.
Epstein allegedly worked with several employees and associates to ensure that he had a steady supply of minor victims to abuse, and paid several of those victims themselves to recruit other underage girls to engage in similar sex acts for money.
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “As alleged, Jeffrey Epstein abused underage girls for years, operating a scheme in which girls he victimized would recruit others for Epstein to exploit and abuse. Epstein exploited girls who were vulnerable to abuse, enticed them with cash payments, and escalated his conduct to include sex acts, often occurring at his residence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill said: “Today’s charges serve as a warning to individuals who continue to prey upon some of our society’s most vulnerable population: we are coming for you. I thank and commend the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District and the FBI for their tireless efforts to ensure child predators are taken off our streets. The NYPD will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to eradicate the trafficking of children in our city and nation and work to bring justice to victims of these heinous crimes.”
The ilk are all related by bloodline .
Power through blackmail.
Foreign interference at its core.
Unearthing the behind the scene players in the Israeli Mossad.
Who cares about the saps that visited this place, or the creep that worked as their front stooge. It’s really all about the Israeli government and their blackmailing the government officials from around the world; in the USA and Europe.
These stories focus on the wrong crimes, and on the victims (those being blackmailed).
People who can’t see past the salaciousness of the events, miss the most important aspect of the scandal, which is that someone’s blackmailing our government.
