From Your News Wire:
Billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein has claimed that he was responsible for founding the Clinton Foundation, and that the Clinton’s are now desperately trying to cover up his ties to the organization.
Lawyers representing Epstein claim that he co-founded the Clinton Foundation during plea negotiations with the U.S. Attorney’s office.
In an attempt to boost Epstein’s image before he was sentenced for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008, his attorneys tried to emphasize his close ties with Bill Clinton, Fox News reports.
A July 2007 letter to the South Florida State U.S. Attorney’s office, written by lawyers Alan Dershowitz and Gerald Lefcourt, claimed that Epstein had been part of the original group that set up the Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative, focusing on ‘some of the world’s most pressing challenges.’
They also mention Clinton was a guest of Epstein who hosted a trip to Africa in 2002 on his private Boeing 727 – dubbed ‘Lolita Express’ – on behalf of the charity.
The plea deal negotiations were eventually successful and Epstein ended up serving just 13 months in prison and a year’s home detention. He is a registered level three sex offender.
Flight records prove that the former president took dozens of trips on the jet which one woman, who claims to be a victim of Epstein, says was set up with a bed where some guests allegedly had group sex with young girls.
However, his involvement in the Clinton Foundation is less clear.
The former politician has always credited longtime assistant Doug Band, now the director of the Foundation, as coming up with the idea for the Global Initiative.
Epstein is not listed in any of the official paperwork of the Clinton Global Initiative as either its founder or director.
But there is evidence that the billionaire supported the Clinton Foundation financially.
