Logs show ex-president took multiple journeys on convicted sex offender’s private jet
Billionaire convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in New Jersey Saturday and hit with several federal child sex trafficking charges, according to reports.
Ex-Assistant FBI Director Chris Swecker said Monday that the current federal indictments against Epstein are likely just a “placeholder,” with “dozens” more charges to follow and a much larger “superseding” indictment against Epstein will be forthcoming.
Under the current charges, elite pedophile Epstein is facing a possible 45 years in prison.
On Monday morning, an indictment alleging sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy was unsealed against the billionaire financier, Clinton donor, and registered sex offender.
Prosecutors allege Epstein preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14, allegedly operating a “vast network” from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005.
According to reporter Yashar Ali, there may be a second defendant in the Epstein case.
4. Also they note that the fact that the indictment won’t be unsealed until Monday is also unusual and COULD indicate that there’s a second defendant in this case.

In May 2016 Fox News revealed that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” private jet at least 26 times, reportedly even ditching his secret service detail “for at least five” of the times he traveled.
Epstein’s jet was reportedly set up with a bed where guests had group sex with young girls.
One of them, Virginia Giuffre, has claimed she was lured into joining Epstein’s harem when she was just 15-years-old – then known as Virginia Roberts – and was used as a sex slave by Epstein and his guests.
Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana,” according to Fox News.
The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.
“Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” said Conchita Sarnoff, of the Washington, D.C. based non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, and author of a book on the Epstein case called “TrafficKing.”
“Why would a former president associate with a man like that?”
Epstein, who counts among his pals royal figures, heads of state, celebrities and fellow billionaires, spent 13 months in prison and home detention for solicitation and procurement of minors for prostitution.
He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on “Orgy Island,” an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Virginia Roberts, 32, who claims she was pimped out by Epstein at age 15, has previously claimed she saw Clinton at Epstein’s getaway in 2002, but logs do not show Clinton aboard any flights to St. Thomas, the nearest airport capable of accommodating Epstein’s plane.
They do show Clinton flying aboard Epstein’s plane to such destinations as Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, China, Brunei, London, New York, the Azores, Belgium, Norway, Russia, and Africa.
Among those regularly traveling with Clinton were Epstein’s associates, New York socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein’s assistant, Sarah Kellen, both of whom were investigated by the FBI and Palm Beach Police for recruiting girls for Epstein and his friends.
Official flight logs filed with the Federal Aviation Administration show Clinton traveled on some of the trips with as many as 10 U.S. Secret Service agents.
However, on a five-leg Asia trip between May 22 and May 25, 2002, not a single Secret Service agent is listed.
The U.S. Secret Service has declined to answer multiple Freedom of Information Act requests filed by Fox News seeking information on these trips.
Clinton would have been required to file a form to dismiss the agent detail, a former Secret Service agent told Fox News.
In response to a separate FOIA request from Fox News, the U.S. Secret Service said it has no records showing agents were ever on the island with Clinton.
A Clinton spokesperson did not return emails requesting comment about the former president’s relationship and travels with Epstein.
The Clinton Library said it had no relevant information and does not keep track of Clinton’s travel records.
Martin Weinberg, Epstein’s current attorney, did not respond to multiple inquiries. Epstein said in a court filing said that he and his associates “have been the subject of the most outlandish and offensive attacks, allegations, and plain inventions.”
