Bill Clinton secretly met with Ghislaine Maxwell: report
Bill Clinton secretly met socialite-turned-accused sex-trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell for an “intimate” dinner in 2014 — well after allegations that she and perv pal Jeffrey Epstein has abused at least one teen, a report said Tuesday.
The former president joined Maxwell — who is now cooling her heels in a Brooklyn jail cell on charges involving the alleged sex abuse of young women — and a small group of friends for the meal in Los Angeles after a celebrity gala that February, sources told the Daily Beast.
“This is an intimate dinner with Clinton in LA,” an aghast source told the Web site.
“Think of all the people [Clinton] knows in LA — and Ghislaine gets to attend.”
A spokesman for Clinton declined to comment to the Daily Beast other than to point to a statement issued by the former president’s team last year that said, “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.”
Reports of Epstein’s sick antics involving underage girls and young women — and Maxwell’s alleged role involving at least one accuser — had already been around for several years before Clinton had dinner with the fallen British socialite.
Police began investigating Epstein in 2005 when a 14-year-old girl said she gave him a massage for money — and other young women came forward to say he would lure them into paid sexual encounters.
Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for sex in Florida and eventually did 13 months behind bars.
Main Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre was then reported as saying in a 2011 Daily Mail piece that the sicko financier and Maxwell — his alleged madam — had exploited her in a now-infamous incident involving Britain’s Prince Andrew, the Daily Mail reported at the time, citing court paper. Giuffre has said she was trafficked to Andrew by the pair for sex.
The royal has denied any wrongdoing, as has Maxwell.
Epstein was found fatally hanged in a Manhattan jail cell in August 2019 awaiting a slew of sex charges.
