”There is no evidence that Clinton visited Epstein’s private island in
the Caribbean. None of the flight logs list Clinton as a passenger on a
Virgin Islands-bound plane, and the former president’s spokesman said in
July that Clinton “has never been to Little St. James Island."

Newly unsealed court records from an accuser against deceased sex offender
Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged right-hand woman Ghislaine Maxwell reveal
claims that former President Bill Clinton was on Epstein’s private island
despite his claims to the contrary.
Transcripts from interviews with accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre include
the claim that she witnessed Clinton on Little St. James in the U.S. Virgin
Islands — dubbed “Pedophile Island,” the site of Epstein's alleged crimes.
Clinton has denied ever setting foot on the island. Among the more than
2,000 pages of unsealed records stemming from Giuffre's defamation lawsuit
against Maxwell, who was arrested earlier this month for allegedly conspiring
with Epstein to sexually abuse underage girls, are allegations about British
royal Prince Andrew, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, and others.
“When you say you asked him ‘why is Bill Clinton here’ — where was ‘here’?”
Giuffre’s lawyers asked in a transcribed interview.
Giuffre replied, “On the island.” She said that one time on the island, Epstein
and Clinton were there with “Ghislaine” and “Emmy” (a likely reference to
Maxwell’s former assistant Emmy Tayler) and that “there was two young
girls that I could identify. ... It was just two girls from New York.” Giuffre said
she was staying at one of the villas on the island. The lawyer asked Giuffre
if “sexual orgies” were “a regular occurrence on the island,” and Giuffre
said that was accurate.
“Do you have any recollection of Jeffrey Epstein specifically telling you that
‘Bill Clinton owes me favors’?” Giuffre’s lawyers asked her.
“Yes, I do. It was a laugh though. He would laugh it off. You know, I remember
asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind of thing, and he laughed it
off and said, 'Well, he owes me a favor.' He never told me what favors they
were,” Giuffre said, adding, “He told me a long time ago that everyone owes
him favors. They’re all in each other’s pockets.”
Clinton’s statement also claimed that “in 2002 and 2003, President Clinton
took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: One to Europe, one
to Asia, and two to Africa." But a Washington Examiner review of the flight
manifest records shows that Clinton actually went on at least 27 flights on
Epstein’s “Lolita Express,” totaling at least six trips, not four. Clinton’s statement
leaves off a trip from Florida to New York and ignores a second lengthy trip
