(TheRedWire.com) – Despite being dead for nearly two years, Jeffery Epstein remains a topic of controversy. A convicted pedophile, Jeffery Epstein had quite the group of friends and connections, including Prince Philip and even former President Bill Clinton.
Recently, it’s been revealed that Bill Clinton actually took two more trips with Epstein and his partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, than originally thought. Clinton joined Epstein on his private plane in 2005, traveling to Japan, China, Taiwan. On a separate occasion, the former president flew on billionaire Ron Burkle’s private jet accompanied by Maxwell on a trip to India in 2003. Both Epstein and Ghislaine were large contributors to the Clinton Foundation. In her new “Chasing Ghislaine” podcast, journalist Vicky Ward indicates Maxwell used the president to get away from Epstein.

While Epstein may be dead, the investigation and prosecution of possible accomplices are ongoing. Ghislaine now faces several charges, including the grooming of underage girls for Epstein to assault. Maxwell was also recently charged by the Southern District of New York for conspiracy charges relating to sex trafficking and trafficking minors. Clinton denies involvement in any illegal activities, despite flying on Epstein’s plane at least 26 times.
The friendship between Clinton, Maxwell and Epstein dates back to 1993, during the Clinton administration’s time in the White House. However, as time progressed, Clinton and Maxwell seemed to grow closer until the 2005 trip to China. Ward claims Jeffery was “completely left behind.” The book, A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein, asserts the only reason Clinton associated with Epstein was to get to Maxwell because the two were allegedly having an affair and were even seen dining together a few times.
Maxwell, 59, could face an 80-year sentence for her alleged crimes. Her trial is set for November 2021.
