Epstein Sex Scandal: Flight Logs Show Clinton, Not Trump, More Likely Involved

-edited

The Epstein sex scandal gets increasingly curious every day. Who's on the hook?

Yesterday, I commented Billionaire Epstein, Charged With Sex-Trafficking Teen Girls, May Name Names

In my posted I cited this Bloomberg article: Epstein Arrest Is a Worry for Donald Trump

The entire slant of the article seemed very biased against Trump. I commented:

Speculatively speaking, looking back to 2005 and 2006, is it more likely someone wanted to protect Bill Clinton or Trump? I don't know, nor does anyone else (except those who may have been directly involved).

It's unwise to go down these lines of thoughts, I only did so to balance out the Bloomberg slant against Trump.

Flight Logs

Two more articles came out today. Neither is damaging to Trump, and I am hardly a Trump defender in general.

Please consider Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew on Sex Offender's Jet Much More than Previously Known.

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” -- even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

“Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” said Conchita Sarnoff, of the Washington, D.C. based non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, and author of a book on the Epstein case called "TrafficKing." “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?”

Police in Palm Beach, Fla., launched a year-long investigation in 2005 into Epstein after parents of a 14-year-old girl said their daughter was sexually abused by him. Police interviewed dozens of witnesses, confiscated his trash, performed surveillance and searched his Palm Beach mansion, ultimately identifying 20 girls between the ages of 14 and 17 who they said were sexually abused by Epstein.

In 2006, at the request of Palm Beach Police, the FBI launched a federal probe into allegations that Epstein and his personal assistants had “used facilities of interstate commerce to induce girls between the ages of 14 and 17 to engage in illegal sexual activities.”

According to court documents, police investigators found a “clear indication that Epstein’s staff was frequently working to schedule multiple young girls between the ages of 12 and 16 years old literally every day, often two or three times per day.”

Speculation

Once again, I caution against speculation, but at least this speculation comes accompanied with flight log evidence.

Some might object to the above article since it is from Fox News.

OK. Please consider Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair

Perhaps the most revealing commentary Donald Trump has offered on Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who pleaded not guilty this week to sex trafficking and conspiracy, occurred in late February 2015, onstage at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Trump, then flirting with a presidential run, was fielding softballs from Fox News host Sean Hannity when a lightning round of questions turned to a favorite topic: Bill Clinton. “Nice guy, Trump said. “Got a lot of problems coming up, in my opinion, with the famous island with Jeffrey Epstein,” he added, seemingly veering off topic. “Lot of problems.”

Trump isn’t known to have gone on any trips with Epstein, which would have been out of character. “I don’t think Trump would go to someone else’s property or someone else’s island or villa,” Nunberg said. “He doesn’t even play golf at anyone else’s clubs.”

Other portions of the article attempted to smear Trump but the attacks came across poorly, especially in light of the above direct quotes.

I suspect this will not be swept under the rug this time and I certainly hope it won't, no matter who is guilty.

Barr isn’t going to recuse himself from the current charges to Epstein just will recuse self from reviewing prior case. This means Trump wants the looked at in detail - anything Trump touches becomes very public.

This is just the beginning. Epstein is quoted as saying he helped found the Clinton Foundation. What a brilliant plan to traffick children from foreign countries that suffered frim recent natural disasters, such as Haiti's earthquake. There are a lot of evil people in this rabbit hole and it goes pretty deep. Many names of well none politicians, entertainers, royalty and business owners are about to be indicted. Epstein is the tip of the iceberg and an avalanche is soon to come.

If the same amount of prosecutorial attention is paid to this as RussiaGate this is gonna be an epic takedown.

i'll start off with a disclaimer. i'm not a fan of Trump as a president or a human being but i do recognize the game some in the media and politics are playing. its all too common. we saw it happen with bill clinton while he was president and now we're seeing it with donald trump.

get trump on his bad policies, governance and lack of qualification and not this silly stuff like linking him to jeffrey epstein.

One must question and wonder why a former president like Clinton would want to associate with a pedophile and child molester like Epstein?

How did Epstein become a billionaire? I would love to see the "follow the money" looked into. I'm not surprised that powerful people would prey on vulnerable young women. This has been the going on for ever. I think the money angle will be more interesting with respect to corruption. The sex is likely just a tool for the corruption.

I read Comey's daughter is involved in the investigation. I'm sure she'll recuse herself because of the obvious conflict of interest. I suspect this will be another attempt to get Trump. All we'll hear is stuff about Trump while ignoring the other 100 or so people involved.

Epstein has been on the radar for a decade. But people were told to back off. From what I have read, Epstein is an intelligence agent who has the great job of snaring dumb politicians and celebs into a compromised situation with a minor. They leverage that to make sure votes, events or money flow the "right way." Trump got wind of Epstein hitting on girls at Mira Lago and kicked him out...but that story is buried along with Clinton stories. Clinton however is in deep shit...because he definitely gets himself into bad situations with you get women. Again, Epstein ran a frameup operation for some country's Intel Agency. Probably us.

Now might be a good time to connect a few dots on this.

...and from WaPo...

The British parliament, as well as a number of entertainment / BBC personalities, were heavily involved in pedophilia for decades. It wasn't just Cyril Smith or Jimmy Saville (allegedly). Reports of dozens of high power VIP persons involved. For decades. Dozens of cases "quietly" pushed aside and not investigated.

Given that Holllywood (in the USA) and British entertainment industry regularly go back and forth on projects, what are the odds that Hollywood is implicated in Epstein et al?

What are the odds that the pedophiles in British Parliament know a few "open minded gents" in the US Congress? Not just Bill Clinton or Anthony Weiner

And then there is this story... not to be confused with Epstein or Weiner.

When this is this much smoke, there is a fire somewhere

I used to live in Thailand, am not a pedo, but met self-proclaimed pedos. This strikes me as odd: "Police in Palm Beach, Fla., launched a year-long investigation in 2005 into Epstein after parents of a 14-year-old girl said their daughter was sexually abused by him"-- timeout. Where were the parents when the 14 yo was with this guy? Keep in mind in Thailand certain poor parents will rent their kids to pedos... connect the dots.
