Not only was President Bill Clinton a frequent flyer on registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous jet, but Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign staff regularly monitored the news media for associations between the former Democrat president and pedophile hedge fund manager, emails published by Wikileaks reveal.

An email sent February 5, 2015 to Clinton’s campaign staff titled, “HRC Clips” referenced an article warns a local New Orleans publication ties Clinton to Epstein.

“There’s a story going around the tabloids and the trashier parts of the mainstream media that could spell trouble for the presumed Democratic frontrunner in 2016,” the article culled to the Clinton campaign from the Times-Picayune newspaper notes. “It concerns a certain (as he would be listed on Louisiana ballots) William “Bill” Clinton.”

“The story involves Clinton palling around with the very shady (and very rich) Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a convicted pedophile who would later donate somewhere between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Presidential Library, reportedly flew with Clinton and a couple of babes to visit the Sultan of Brunei back in 2002.”

An email sent to Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta from Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, Tina Flournoy, notified the Clinton campaign of an article published by Buzzfeed in 2015 titled, “Plenty of Innuendo, But No Hard Evidence of New Clinton Sex Scandal.”

The subtitle of the article reads, “Much-discussed documents in Jeffery Epstein affair don’t live up to the hype.”

“Good.” Flournoy responded.

The Democratic National Committee’s staff also diligently monitored stories and social media posts linking Epstein to Clinton, the trove of emails published by WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign exhibits.  

Clinton, who has been accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick and sexual assault accusations by Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and other women, maintains he has “never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”

However, a multitude of emails were forwarded to the Clinton campaign from DNC staff warning leading Republicans were circulating an article published by Fox News titled, “Flight Logs show Bill Clinton flew on sex offender’s jet much more than previously known.

In an email  titled “2016 GOP on HRC,” the campaign and DNC official cautioned the article affirms the former president took at least 26 trips abroad the “Lolita Express” and even ditched his Secret Service detail on at least five of those occasions.

Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre claims in an affidavit that she saw Clinton on Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her claim has not been corroborated.

Bill Clinton’s office issued a statement last week maintaining the former president was entirely unaware of  Epstein’s alleged crimes involving sex trafficking and minors.

“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’s press secretary Angel Ureña said in a statement.  

One of Epstein’s accusers claims in a 2017 lawsuit Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of a British media baron, was “the highest-ranking employee” of the hedge fund manager’s enterprises and allegedly managed his household and sex life.

Photographs reveal Maxwell was a guest at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.

Clinton’s insistence that he was oblivious of Epstein’s criminal activity comes after the controversial financier pleaded not guilty to sex-trafficking charges in Manhattan federal court last week.

Federal prosecutors alleged Epstein “sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes” in New York, Palm Beach, and other locations and compensated his alleged victims to recruit more underage girls. 

Epstein was denied bail in the case on Thursday and will remain incarcerated pending the trial.
