The former President Bill Clinton’s past has just come back to haunt him, as his alleged close ties to the late billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein are being exposed.
“Clinton was definitely very close to Jeffrey,” Lady Victoria Hervey, the ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew, said in the new ITV documentary, “Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Pedophile.”
Hervey went on to explain that she saw their relationship up close because she was a good friend of the disgraced British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who introduced her to Andrew.
“I don’t know if you saw the paintings that were in Jeffrey Epstein’s house? One of them being a portrait of Bill Clinton wearing the dress that Monica Lewinsky wore when they had the affair,” Hervey continued, according to The New York Post. “So yeah, he was super close to Jeffrey Epstein. They were like brothers, you know, and he was close to Ghislaine as well.”
Hervey alleges that as a high profile “It Girl” of the time period who was also the daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol, she was used as “bait” by Epstein and Maxwell to lure in young girls. She claims this was also why the pair were so attracted to Andrew.
“Prince Andrew was a son of the Queen of England. Americans love that. Jeffery loved that. Bill Clinton loved that,” she continued.
A representative for Clinton fired back by saying that the former president “knows nothing about the serious crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to.” He then claimed that Clinton had only met Epstein a handful of times, and that he had “not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade” before the pedophile’s death in August of 2019, when he allegedly committed suicide in prison.
Maxwell was convicted at the end of last month on five out of six charges related to her grooming young girls for sex with Epstein, and sometimes participating in the abuse herself. She is now seeking a mistrial due to a juror admitting that he had hid his own childhood sexual abuse during jury selection.
Andrew is currently being sued by Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims that she was forced to have sex with the royal multiple times as an underage 17 year-old. Though Andrew has repeatedly denied the claims made by Giuffre, he was stripped of his military titles and his royal patronages by his mother Queen Elizabeth earlier this week.
“With the Queen’s approval and agreement, the Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement, according to the BBC. “The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”
A source close to Andrew responded by saying that he will “continue to defend himself” from claims made by Giuffre.
