Photos surface of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in Clinton White House
Convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell met with then-president Bill Clinton at the White House newly released photos confirm.
“The photos show just how close Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein got to one of the most powerful men in the world — in the most powerful building,” a source told the Sun, who released the photos Saturday.
Maxwell and Epstein spoke with then-President Bill Clinton in the White House at a 1993 event for the White House Historical Association donors. The Daily Beast previously reported Epstein’s presence at the event and him making a $10,000 donation to the fund.
Maxwell and Epstein were known friends of the Clintons, who reportedly took the President on a tour of Africa on Epstein’s private jet, the “Lolita Express,” following Clinton’s two terms in office. The new photos show that their relationship extended back to Clinton’s first year in office.
In July 2019, a spokesperson for the former President tweeted, “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.” During the same month, Epstein was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy for allegedly abusing underage girls.
In August 2020, a photo of Epstein accuser Chauntae Davies giving Clinton a neck massage was released, reportedly taken during a trip with Epstein to Africa.
“Although the image looks bizarre, President Clinton was a perfect gentleman during the trip, and I saw absolutely no foul play involving him,” she said.
The photos were released one day after Maxwell faced a judge, pleading not guilty to additional sex trafficking charges added to her indictment. Lawyers determined when she will stand trial for the charges against her. She was initially charged with transporting a minor for the purposes of criminal sexual activity and conspiring to entice minors to engage in illegal sexual acts.
Ahead of her sex trafficking trial, Maxwell’s family launched a website with a biography of her highlighting her supposed achievements after moving to the U.S. in 1990 but making no mention of the meeting with President Clinton.
