Bill Clinton’s longtime aide and confidente claimed that the former President indeed visited Jeffrey Epstein’s private island.

This week, in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the longtime aide and confidante of former President Bill Clinton said that the former President indeed went to the private island. This statement surfaced this week despite Bill Clinton’s denials.

Jeffrey Epstein’s private island in Little St. James reportedly served as a hub for Epstein’s global sex trafficking operation where he allegedly trafficked underage victims.

Doug Band was Bill Clinton’s right-hand man for years after he left the White House.

Band confirmed with Vanity Fair that the former President visited the Little St. James, a statement that is contrary to Clinton’s denial.

“Clinton made the trip in January 2003, one of the dozens of times he flew aboard Epstein’s private jet, the ‘Lolita Express’.” Band said.

Band also stated that although he was ignorant of Epstein’s sex crimes at that time, Band said that he knew that Epstein was “bad news.” He said this feeling started since Bill Clinton’s now infamous 2002 trip aboard Lolita Express.

The said 2002 trip is a known instance of Epstein and Clinton traveling together. This trip was revealed in a series of flight logs that were made public as part of the criminal and civil litigation against the late Epstein and his associates.

These allegations of Bill Clinton’s involvement with Epstein’s sex trafficking operation had been circulating routinely. However, the former President has categorically denied that his long-term friendship with Epstein had ever involved participating in his sex trafficking operations.

The most recent allegations involving Bill Clinton came in late August after an interview with Epstein’s victim was unsealed. In the said interview, Virginia Giuffre claimed that she saw the former President on the island with two women. Both were alleged victims of Epstein as well.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Bill Clinton denied last Friday that the former President had ever been to Epstein’s private island.

In a statement to Newsweek, Spokesperson Angel Urena denied the allegations from Virginia Giuffre, who stated that she saw the former President on the island with “two young girls.”

Giuffre also said, “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,” a statement she told lawyer Jack Scarola in 2011.

Giuffre further explained that Epstein never told her what favors they were. She continued by saying, “I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke. He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They’re all in each other’s pockets.”

In addition to the denial by Bill Clinton’s party, his spokesperson also told media that the former President had “not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade” and that Bill Clinton and Epstein fell out well before said crimes came to light.

Several years ago, Epstein, who was convicted of sex trafficking, has been tied to several high profile celebrities, politicians, and business figures. However, before his second criminal trial on new allegations, Epstein committed suicide.

Meanwhile, last August, hours before former President Bill Clinton’s appearance at the Democratic National Convention, Clinton’s photos were published, apparently receiving a neck massage from one of Epstein’s victims, Chantal Davies, after a previously reported flight to Africa by Clinton and Epstein in 2002.

Said photos also came just hours before Bill Clinton was set to endorse Joe Biden in the virtual DNC.
