The NY Post
has published a piece claiming that Bill Clinton's "libido" will derail Hillary's career. This allegation is based purely on the fact (already well-known) that Bill flew on Jeffrey Epstein's jet.
What is truly astounding about this piece is that it suddenly grants Virginia Roberts complete credibility. There is no mention of her claims concerning Alan Dershowitz. The NY Post has entered some strange alternative universe in which Roberts becomes credible for the purposes of slamming Clinton, but then loses believability the moment we start talking about Dershowitz.
Here's the truth: Roberts has not (NOT NOT NOT) made any claims that Clinton acted in an improper fashion. She has made such claims about Dershowitz and the Prince, not the former president. Epstein flew Clinton as part of a charity tour of Africa.
Did Epstein have an ulterior motive when he offered transportation services to the former president? Perhaps. Since the mainstream media has suddenly decided to concede the credibility of Virginia Roberts, let's not forget the words that she actually said:
"In addition to constantly finding underage girls to satisfy their personal desires, Epstein and Maxwell also got girls for Epstein’s friends and acquaintances. Epstein specifically told me that the reason for him doing this was so that they would “owe him,” they would “be in his pocket,” and he would “have something on them.” I understood him to mean that when someone was in his pocket, they owed him favors.
Smells like a blackmail operation, doesn't it?
The important point is this: We have no indication -- none
-- that Bill Clinton ever took the bait, if bait was indeed offered.
Clinton is not one of Epstein's "friends and acquaintances." Dershowitz is
. Although Alan Dershowitz has recently downplayed his friendship with Epstein, the famed lawyer once admitted that Epstein was the only non-family member to get an advance look at Dershowitz' manuscripts.
Not only that.
The Epstein imbroglio is all about a sleazy deal cut between Epstein's legal team (led by Dershowitz) and Florida authorities. This plea bargain fetched the billionaire a ridiculously light sentence for his many crimes against the underaged. A less-affluent miscreant facing such charges probably would have spent a lifetime in prison. The victims were not apprised of this disgusting deal, even thought the law clearly states they should have been part of the process.
Who was the governor of Florida when this sleaze was enacted? Jeb Bush
. Who let Jeff Epstein -- seducer of the underaged and (arguably) the master of a sex slavery operation -- off with a slap on the wrist? Jeb Bush
Make no mistake: If the governor of Florida had said "I want 'em to throw the book at this guy," the book would have been tossed.
By the way: The same NY Post piece claims that Bill Clinton made "racially charged" gaffes during the 2008 contest. He did no such thing. Bill Clinton was the best friend black people ever had in the oval office, including its current occupant.
