Following Jeffrey Epstein’s death from an apparent jailhouse suicide, President Donald Trump said he had “no idea” if former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton were involved in any way. Epstein was a wealthy financier who is accused of child sex trafficking. Epstein was friends with both Clinton and Trump.
Amid accusations by conspiracy theorists that the Clintons arranged for Epstein’s death, Trump stated he wanted a “full probe” into his death.
Nevertheless, the President actually retweeted a post by Terrence Williams, a prominent conspiracy promoter, who stated that Epstein “had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead. I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! … #EpsteinSuicide #ClintonBodyCount #ClintonCrimeFamily.”
Trump said of Williams, “He is a very highly respected conservative pundit.”
He added: “He’s a big Trump fan. And that was a retweet. That wasn’t from me. That was from him. But he’s a man with half a million followers, a lot of followers.”
Epstein hung himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. Both the FBI and the inspector general’s office of the Justice Department are investigating his death.
In late July, Epstein already tried to kill himself. He was discovered semiconscious in his cell bearing marks on his neck. Less than a week later, he was taken off suicide watch.
In the 1990’s, there was at least one instance when Trump flew on Epstein’s private plane while Clinton is known to have flown multiple times.
When Trump was asked if he believed the Clintons were responsible for Epstein’s death, he answered, “I have no idea.”
“I know he [Bill Clinton] was on his plane 27 times,” Trump said.
He added that Clinton was “a very good friend of Epstein’s.”
Clinton’s spokesman Angel Urena did not immediately respond to a request for comment by CNBC but he did tweet a video of Trumping commenting about Epstein and Clinton, writing: “Might be hard to hear over Air Force One, but that’s the sound of the President of the United States’ credibility blowing in the wind.
Trump said it would not be “very good” if it’s proven that Clinton visited Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Island.
“That was not a good place, as I understand it, and I was never there,” Trump said. “You have to ask, did Bill Clinton go to the island?”
“That’s the question. If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot.”
Trump was referring to Little St. James which the FBI raided as part of their investigation into Epstein’s alleged role in sex trafficking. The island is known as “Pedophile Island” among locals.
Last month, Clinton’s spokesman claimed that the former president has had no contact with Epstein “in well over a decade,” and had never visited Little St. James.
However, Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers, stated in a civil lawsuit deposition that Clinton had dinner with Epstein on the island at least once.
