Estate workers have claimed Bill and Hillary Clinton were frequent guests at alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico ranch.
Epstein’s estate manager told the Daily Mail that the Clintons’ appearances at Zorro Ranch occurred nearly every year.
One contractor told the British tabloid that Bill Clinton was Epstein’s “closest celebrity mate.”
Bill Clinton has denied he visited any of Epstein’s residences.
Security contractor Jared Kellogg said the Zorro Ranch’s manager, Brice Gordon, regularly boasted about the former president’s visits.
“Brice would be bragging about how the Clintons would visit, the whole family. Not just Bill, but Bill, his wife, their kid, and they would stay on the ranch itself,” Kellogg told the Daily Mail.
The New York Times reported in July that Epstein wanted to turn Zorro Ranch into a “baby-making factory,” citing two scientists who spoke to the late financier.
According to the New York City medical examiner, Epstein hanged himself in jail in August while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. He had pleaded not guilty.
However, many people have raised doubts about the official cause of death.
Meanwhile, some conservatives have slammed the Clintons for their purported ties to Epstein.
Soon after Epstein was accused of exploiting underage girls in July, commentators united in mocking Bill Clinton on social media after he issued a statement denying knowledge of Epstein’s crimes.
“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,” a Clinton spokesperson said. “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.”
The statement was met with widespread skepticism, with several commenters pointing out that Clinton’s assertion that he took a “total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane” appeared to contradict official Federal Aviation Administration flight logs.
Records obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s private jet, which the media has nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”
