As the world awaits the verdict of Jeffrey Epstein ‘madame’ Ghislaine Maxwell, the Daily Mail reported on Friday – citing information revealed in an upcoming podcast – that President Bill Clinton flew Epstein’s “Lolita Express” (the private jet belonging to the deceased billionaire and convicted pedophile) on a trip to Taiwan, Japan and China. At some point during the trip, Clinton and Ghislaine were joined by a billionaire Ted Waitt.
During the trip, Clinton and Maxwell met with various foreign dignitaries, and even promised a small donation to help fight AIDS in China.
In addition, Clinton and Maxwell traveled together in a private jet owned by billionaire Ron Burkle on a trip to India in November 2003. Reporter Vicki Ward-who revealed the new details of his podcast “Chasing Ghislaine” – Maxwell reports on Clinton’s official entourage and shares the same hotel with the ex -president.
This recent trip with Burkle is about Clinton’s work with the Clinton Foundation, her philanthropic initiative, to reduce the cost of AIDS drugs.
Maxwell used Clinton as an “escape” from Epstein, a much-needed respite to get away from the ‘poisoning’ of recruiting underage women to be abused by Epstein. Maxwell was invited to travel for a simple reason: he was seen as a critical go-to for the Clinton Foundation because it solicited millions of donations from Epstein.
Maxwell is considered by Clinton’s personal staff to be “just as important” as Epstein for raising money for the Clinton Foundation and is the ‘go-to person’ when it comes to soliciting donations from pedophiles.
Ward said in the podcast: “Now I also know from sources close to Bill Clinton that he and his post-presidential staff consider Ghislaine as important as Jeffrey-if not more so.”
Ward’s reporting sets a new, and uncomfortable (for the Clinton), focus on the relationship between Clinton, Epstein and Maxwell.
Flight logs show that Clinton took at least 26 flights aboard the ‘Lolita Express’ – no matter how her Secret Service details were tapped for at least five flights between 2001 and 2003 The former president was closest to Epstein in the early 2000s, after he ended his presidency, which also coincided with the time when Epstein ran his original sex ring in West Palm Beach.
Of course, Clinton denies any involvement in and / or knowledge of Epstein’s criminal activities. He also denied reports that he had visited the private island of Epstein.
According to Ward, Maxwell “used” the former boss in his attempt (and failure) to take a permanent break from his relationship with Epstein.
Ward’s name may be familiar to some who closely follow Epstein’s story. He has reported on Epstein for decades on both CNN and Vanity Fair. He has appeared in documentaries (including one on Netflix) about Epstein and his crimes.
According to a book about Epstein and Maxwell called “A Convenient Death”, Clinton was particularly interested in Epstein because of Maxwell, with whom she was related. In addition to trips, Maxwell will be with guests attending Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding.
