Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offenders infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs presenting the former chairwoman taking at least 26 trip-ups aboard the Lolita Express — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.
Clintons presence aboard Jeffrey Epsteins Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs indicate the number is more than doubled that, and trip-ups between 2001 and 2003 included widened junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on shows by their initials or first names, including Tatiana. The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sexuality with young girls.
Bill Clinton associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, surely within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile, told Conchita Sarnoff, of the Washington , D.C. based non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, and writer of a book on the Epstein case called “TrafficKing.” Why would a former chairwoman associate with a man like that?
Epstein, who counts among his cronies royal figures, the heads of state and government, celebrities and fellow billionaires, spent 13 months in prison and home detention for solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution. He allegedly had a squad of traffickers who find daughters as young as 12 to service his friends on Orgy Island, an estate on Epstein’s 72 -acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Virginia Roberts, 32, who claims she was pimped out by Epstein at age 15, has previously claimed “shes seen” Clinton at Epsteins getaway in 2002, but logs do not show Clinton aboard any flights to St. Thomas, the nearest airport capable of accommodating Epstein’s plane. They do indicate Clinton flying aboard Epsteins plane to such destinations as Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, China, Brunei, London, New York, the Azores, Belgium, Norway, Russia and Africa.
Among those regularly traveling with Clinton were Epsteins associates, New York socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and Epsteins assistant, Sarah Kellen, both of whom were investigated by the FBI and Palm Beach Police for recruiting daughters for Epstein and his friends.
Official flight logs filed with the Federal Aviation Administration indicate Clinton traveled on some of the trip-ups with as many as 10 U.S. Secret Service agents. However, on a five-leg Asia trip between May 22 and May 25, 2002 , not a single Secret Service agent is listed. The U.S. Secret Service has declined to answer multiple Freedom of Information Act petitions filed by FoxNews.com seeking information on these trip-ups. Clinton would have been required to file a sort to dismiss the agent detail, a former Secret Service agent told FoxNews.com.
In response to a separate FOIA request from FoxNews.com, the U.S. Secret Service said it has no records presenting agents were ever on the island with Clinton.
A Clinton spokesperson did not return emails requesting remark about the former chairpeople relationship and travels with Epstein. The Clinton Library said it had no relevant information and does not keep track of Clintons travel records.
Martin Weinberg, Epsteins current lawyer, did not respond to multiple inquiries. Epstein said in a court filing said that he and his associates have been the subject of the most outlandish and offensive attacks, allegations, and plain inventions.
However, hundreds of pages of court records, including reports from police and FBI agents, reviewed by FoxNews.com, indicate Epstein was under law enforcement scrutiny for more than a year.
Police in Palm Beach, Fla ., launched a year-long investigation in 2005 into Epstein after parents of a 14 -year-old girl said their daughter was sexually abused by him. Police interviewed dozens of witness, confiscated his junk, performed surveillance and searched his Palm Beach mansion, ultimately identifying 20 daughters between the ages of 14 and 17 who they said were sexually abused by Epstein.
In 2006, at the request of Palm Beach Police, the FBI launched a federal probe into allegations that Epstein and his personal assistants had utilized facilities of interstate commerce to induce daughters between the ages of 14 and 17 to engage in illegal sexual activities.
According to court documents, police researchers discovered a clear indication that Epsteins staff was often working to schedule multiple young girl between the ages of 12 and 16 years old literally every day, often two or three times per day.
One victim, in sworn deposition testimony, told Epstein began sexually assaulting her when she was 13 years old and molested her on more than 50 occasions over the next three years. The daughters witnessed they were lured to Epsteins home after being promised hundreds of dollars to be his model or masseuse, but when they arrived, he ordered them to take off their clothes and massage his naked body while he masturbated and used sexuality toys on them.
The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida prepared charging documents that accused Epstein of child sexuality abuse, witness tampering and money laundering, but Epstein took a plea bargain before an indictment could be handed up.
On Sept. 24, 2007, in a bargain shrouded in secrecy that left alleged victims shocked at its leniency, Epstein agreed to a 30 -month sentence, including 18 months of jail time and 12 months of house arrest and the agreement to pay dozens of young girl under a federal ordinance providing for compensation to victims of child sexual abuse.
In exchange, the U.S. Attorneys Office promised not to pursue any federal charges against Epstein or his co-conspirators.
Florida attorney Brad Edwards, who represented some of Epsteins alleged victims, is suing the federal government over the secret non-prosecution agreement in hopes of having it overturned. Edwards claimed in court records that the government and Epstein concealed the bargain from the victims to prevent them from voicing any objection, and to avoid the firestorm of dispute that would have arisen if it had become known that the Government was immunizing a politically-connected billionaire and all of his co-conspirators from prosecution of hundreds of federal sex crimes against minor girls.
The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida did not respond to a request for remark about the deal.
Other politicians, celebrities and industrialists, including presidential candidate Donald Trump, have been accused of fraternizing with Epstein. Trump lawyer Alan Garten told FoxNews.com in a statement Trump and Epstein are not pals.
There was no relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump, he told. They were not friends and they did not socialize together.
