Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested last week on federal sex trafficking charges. Having pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, he is now accused of abusing at least forty victims, many in their early teens. For years, Epstein allegedly recruited runaway kids for sex parties at his mansion, a private island, and on a jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express.” He also has ties to many prominent figures, including former President Bill Clinton.
Following the arrest, Clinton released a statement in which he denied knowing about the "terrible crimes" of which Epstein is accused. The ex-president went on to assert that he had only took "a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane," each time in the presence of Secret Service agents. While that may be what Clinton is saying to the media, aviation records say something else: flight logs show Clinton took twenty six trips on Epstein's Boeing 727, ditching his security detail for five of them. Of course, this is hardly the first time evidence and Clinton's story didn't line up.
Clinton has plenty of experience with issuing denials. During his presidency, he denied having an affair "with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky." He denied exposing himself to Paula Jones and groping Kathleen Wiley. Something else he's denied? Raping Juanita Broaddrick.
In 1978, Broaddrick was running a nursing home when she says Bill Clinton (then Arkansas' Attorney General) sexually assaulted her:
And then as he points over my shoulder, he grabs me and turns me to him. And that was a shock. And I tried to push him away. And I only weighed about 120 pounds at that time. He was a very large man. And I kept telling him, “No. I don’t want this at all.”
And he grabbed me again, very forcefully. And started biting on my top lip. And this was extremely painful. I thought he was going to bite my lip off. And that’s when he pushed me back onto the bed.
Norma Rogers was Broaddrick's director of nursing, and she entered the room immediately after the alleged attack; Rogers claims to have found Broaddrick crying with a swollen lip. Friends Louise Ma, Susan Lewis, and Jean Darden have also said they were told of the incident shortly afterward. And according to Broaddrick, the trauma didn't stop, as Hillary Clinton intimidated her into keeping quiet.

The claim that Clinton bit Broaddrick's lip is significant, as Kathleen Willey also said Clinton bit her lip in 1993; both are very specific allegations, and it seems odd that two women in two different parts of the country would make the same allegation fifteen years apart.
Jeffrey Epstein has pleaded not guilty, and it remains to be seen how his case will unfold. One possible outcome? That we'll find out whether Bill Clinton's latest denial really is sincere. Until then, we'll just have to go by his track record.
