Bill Clinton is 'key person' to Epstein probe because of his close relationship...


Bill Clinton was described in newly-unsealed court documents as 'a key person' in the lives of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, who enjoyed a 'close relationship with the pair'.

The former president, now 77, has long insisted that his connections to Epstein were on a professional basis, to aid the work of the Clinton Foundation. He insisted in 2019 that during his four trips on Epstein's private jet, in 2002 and 2003, he was always accompanied by a retinue of staff and Secret Service agents.

But court documents from June 2016 - part of a defamation suit filed against Maxwell by one of Epstein's victims, Virginia Roberts - paint a different picture, after another document saw Epstein accuse Clinton of 'liking them young.' 

A photographer traveled to Bill and Hillary Clinton's home in Chappaqua, upstate New York on Wednesday night, but was kept well away from their home by local security. It is unclear where the Clintons are currently staying. 

Roberts, in her filing, is seeking permission from the judge to force more people to sit for a deposition, to bolster her case. 

Roberts - using her married name, Virginia Giuffre - argues that Clinton was close to both Maxwell and Epstein, who died in jail awaiting trial in August 2019.

'In a 2011 interview, Ms. Giuffre mentioned former President Bill Clinton's close personal relationship with Defendant and Jeffrey Epstein,' the court document states.
