On Monday, Clinton's press secretary Angel Ureña said in a statement: “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, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation." Supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip.”
But a Washington Examiner review of flight manifest records contradicts these claims. It shows Clinton took 27 flights on Epstein’s private jet during at least six different trips.
Court documents outlining the trips and the individual flights were filed as an exhibit in a lawsuit by Bradley Edwards, an attorney for some of Epstein's accusers.
Epstein was arrested on Saturday when his plane landed in Teterboro, New Jersey, after taking off from Paris. He pleaded not guilty in federal court on Monday to charges of conspiracy and child sex trafficking.
The controversial financier struck a deal in 2008 with federal prosecutors, including Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, that allowed him to avoid 10 years in prison on charges of sexually abusing minors as young as 14 and having some of his victims recruit other girls in exchange for serving 13 months in jail and paying restitution to victims.
An attorney who represented the victims of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual assault said that in 2009, the only person that helped him was then citizen Donald Trump.
