Former President Bill Clinton finally breaks silence and offered a statement about Jeffrey Epstein's arrest and sick crimes involving minors. Clinton, who is allegedly Epstein's friend, travel mate, and possibly has done business with Epstein, has stated that he denies knowing about any possible crimes Epstein has committed.
Clinton didn't speak publicly on this, but offered the statement through a spokesman who then relayed the message that Bill Clinton "knows nothing" about the alleged crimes Epstein was arrested for. Epstein, a billionaire, has already pleaded "not guilty" to "sex-trafficking charges in Manhattan federal court" per a report on USA Today.
"President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York," according to a statement tweeted by Clinton's press secretary Angel Ureña."

USA Today continued, stating that "Epstein was arrested Saturday on sex-trafficking charges dating back to the 2000s, according to the Associated Press. On Monday, Epstein pleaded not guilty to one count of sex trafficking and one count of sex-trafficking conspiracy, which stem from accusations dating to 2002-2005.
According to the federal indictment, Epstein "sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes" in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida, along with other locations. He also allegedly paid some of his victims to recruit more underage girls, according to the indictment."
As you can imagine, the response to the statement was not good. According to people who remember that flight records can be made public knowledge, Bill Clinton has already lied in his first released statement. Clinton is being called out on that already.
More than 4 times on Epstein’s jet according to these flight logs so blatantly lying already makes Bill Clinton look guilty. It doesn't matter unless one of the girls that was underaged at the time is willing to testify against Clinton. We will see. https://t.co/5QWDWhg5wC— Currie Dobson (@Ventuckyspaz) July 9, 2019
Already lying lol his flights are a matter of public record— cowardly eggboy (@Modealcom) July 9, 2019
With Clinton's checkered past, and having lied to the American public before to extend of impeachment, his word has little weight.— Kevin Kendall (@kken628875) July 9, 2019
Hello Angel, I’m Juliana Jimenez, reporter with @Univision. Flight records made public by Gawker and other outlets contradict this statement, in terms of amount of flights pres. Clinton was on (more than 4). Can you comment on this? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org— Juliana Jimenez J. (@photobomba) July 8, 2019
