Epstein used Bill Clinton’s name to intimidate 15-year-old accuser: lawsuit
Jeffrey Epstein used his friendship with Bill Clinton to intimidate a 15-year-old girl into accepting a “vicious, prolonged sexual assault,” according to court docs.
The late pedophile started the presidential name-dropping as soon as he first groped the accuser, only identified as Jane Doe 15, on his so-called “Lolita Express” private jet, a lawsuit filed last year said.
“Epstein made clear to Jane Doe 15 how powerful he was. He made a point of mentioning that he was close with Bill Clinton,” claimed the lawsuit against Epstein’s estate.
Epstein immediately took the then-teen to the bedroom on his jet for the 2004 trip to his New Mexico ranch, the filing said. He bragged about women sleeping at his feet on a mattress that covered the whole room, which “made her immediately think of slaves,” the filing said.
Throughout, he kept reminding her how close he was to some of the world’s most powerful people, she says.
“When I chose a seat on the jet, Jeffrey told me that his good friend, Bill Clinton, always chose to sit” there, she previously said at a press conference.
Newly unearthed photos this week showed Clinton receiving a neck massage from alleged Jeffrey Epstein victim Chauntae Davies following a flight on the financier’s infamous jet.
The lawsuit claims the name-dropping was part of how “Epstein conveyed to Jane Doe 15 how powerful he was and how helpful he could be in assisting Jane Doe 15 with her future goals, such as paying for college.”
“Using this overwhelming power he had over Jane Doe 15, Epstein subjected her to a vicious, prolonged sexual assault,” she said.
Clinton has previously acknowledged traveling with Epstein on multiple occasions, but has vehemently denied any awareness of the convicted pedophile’s crimes, and has not been accused of any wrongdoing of his own.
Epstein hanged himself while in federal custody in August 2019 while awaiting further serious sex charges.
His ex, Ghislaine Maxwell, has pleaded not guilty to charges of wrangling girls for Epstein, and then lying about the arrangement under oath.
