Bill Clinton issued a statement claiming he never went to Jeffery Epstein’ Island. The date he gave seems to be leaving out some other details reported by Fox News.
Former President Bill Clinton dined with financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in 1995, records show—years before the interactions detailed in a statement from his office earlier this week.
That statement condemned the wealthy hedge fund manager after his indictment for alleged sex trafficking crimes was unsealed Monday. The statement said Clinton "knows nothing" about Epstein's alleged crimes and included a timeline of Clinton's interactions with him starting in 2002.
But according to a story published back in March 1995 by the Palm Beach Post, then-President Clinton attended a “three-hour dinner” at the time with a “very select group of people” at the Palm Beach home of business magnate Ron Perelman. The diverse group included Epstein -- as well as singer Jimmy Buffet, actor Don Johnson, then-co-chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and others.
A spokesman for former President Bill Clinton said in a statement that Clinton "knows nothing" about Jeffrey Epstein's alleged crimes. "He's not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade," the statement concluded.
