Bill and Hillary Clinton quickly distanced themselves from the fallout from the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, not many believed their story.
Epstein knows where the bodies are buried and many prominent figures are on pins and needles waiting to see what drops next.
But it was the Clinton’s strong denial of any relationship with Epstein and the “only saw him a few times’ defense that turned heads as it was not thought to be accurate.
Now, and this is from a liberal magazine, a new report shatters that myth and revealed Epstein visited the White Houe numerous times under Bill Clinton.
From The Daily Beast: …a Daily Beast investigation has uncovered ties between Epstein and the Clinton administration that date back to the president’s earliest days in the White House, casting doubt on the oft-circulated narrative that the two only began associating after Clinton left office.
As early as 1993, records show, Epstein donated $10,000 to the White House Historical Association and attended a donors’ reception hosted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Around the same time, according to a source familiar with the connection, Epstein visited presidential aide Mark Middleton several times at the White House. Two years later, businesswoman Lynn Forester de Rothschild wrote a personal letter to Clinton thanking him for their talk about the financier.
“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 spokesperson, Angel Ureña, told The Daily Beast. “Any suggestion to the contrary is both factually inaccurate and irresponsible.”
Representatives for Epstein, de Rothschild and Middleton did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
From The Daily Mail: The former president, who was in the White House from 1993 to 2001, said he had taken four flights on Epstein’s private jet and visited him in his New York office and apartment on one occasion each.
Clinton said the encounters with Epstein occurred around 2002 and 2003 and that his Secret Service agents were present at the time.
However, a Daily Beast investigation published on Wednesday has uncovered that Epstein had links to the Clinton administration that date back to the early days of his presidency.
Epstein made a $10,000 donation to the White House Historical Association back in 1993, according to records in the Clinton Library.
He also attended a reception for donors that was hosted by Bill and Hillary Clinton in the White House residence following his donation.
Epstein was listed as a guest for the donor event with his former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell – the woman who has been accused of helping the billionaire run his alleged underage sex ring.

Maxwell was present at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding back in 2010.
Epstein also visited the White House at least three times in the mid-90s to meet with Clinton administration aide Mark Middleton, who was a friend of Clinton’s from Arkansas.
It is not clear how long they met for or what they discussed.
