Jeffrey Epstein visited the White House at least 17 times in the early years of President Bill Clinton’s administration, according to a new report published Thursday.
Visitor logs show the wealthy convicted pedophile — who died from an apparent suicide in his jail cell in 2019 – even visited the Clinton White House twice on the same day three different times, The Daily Mail reported.
In one visit on Sept. 29, 1993, Epstein attended an event where he and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell were photographed alongside Clinton after the financier donated $10,000 to help renovate the building.
It’s not clear if Epstein, who killed himself in his jail cell in 2019, actually met or interacted with Clinton during his other visits, and the former president wasn’t in the building for at least a few of Epstein’s trips there, the Mail said.
The visitor logs, obtained by the Mail through a request with the Clinton Presidential library, showed Epstein first visiting the White House on Feb. 25, 1993 – a little more than a month after the Democrat first took office. During that visit, his destination was listed as “WW” — apparently the West Wing – and his invitation was issued by “Rubin,” according to the report.
Rubin may have meant former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who would’ve been director of the National Economic Council at the time, the Mail said. A spokeswoman for Rubin told the publication he had no recollection of ever meeting or speaking to Epstein.
Epstein is listed on logs three more days in 1993, including the day of the photograph with Maxwell, who’s now on trial in New York City for her alleged role recruiting underage woman for her friend to assault, the Mail reported.
Epstein returned to the White House 12 times in 1994, including four visits in less than a week in April, the Mail reported. For several of the visits, Clinton’s schedule showed he wasn’t at the White House at the time, according to the report.
Clinton has denied any knowledge of Epstein’s sexual misdeeds, but had maintained ties with him over the years and was said to have been a passenger on Epstein’s private jet several times, including once in 2002 when the ex-president was photographed with one of Epstein’s eventual rape accusers. Maxwell attended the 2010 wedding of Clinton’s daughter Chelsea.
Epstein’s other high-profile acquaintances include former President Donald Trump and UK Prince Andrew, both of whom had been passengers on his jet, a former pilot testified during Maxwell’s trial on Tuesday.
