“No one wants to talk about it, but that’s the fact.”
Guest Donny Deutsch alluded to the “uncomfortable” reality of Bill Clinton’s friendship with billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
While it has long been known that the two were friendly, a new book on Epstein by Conchita Sarnoff, of the Washington, D.C. based non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, has revealed that Clinton flew on board Epstein’s private jet dozens of times.
The book cites flights logs for the plane, dubbed the “Lolita Express”, with Clinton’s name included in them. The logs show he took 26 flights, at least five of which he traveled without an entourage.“Here’s the tennis game,” Deutsch said on Morning Joe. “Donald Trump kissed a woman in a bathing suit. Trump hits back: Tell me about the president’s relationship with a guy named Jeffrey Epstein. That’s your tennis match.”As he described Clinton’s past with Epstein, Deutsch said “no one wants to talk about it, but that’s the fact.”“I will say this was a blind spot for me, because I’m not in New York circles,” anchor Joe Scarborough replied. “This is something I have been hearing about for a year-and-a half. I don’t know the whole story or anything, but I keep having reporters say, ‘This is going to blow up.’”The other members on the panel agreed.“In some of the cases, the facts will be uncomfortable for the Clintons,” panelist Mark Halperin said. Journalist Mike Barnicle predicted that the presidential race would become “incredibly ugly” in the weeks to come, while former GOP strategist Steve Schmidt added that he firmly expects that Trump will “go there.”“When Hillary Clinton out there yesterday is talking about I’m going to put my husband in charge of reviving the economy in Kentucky for the coal miners, he’s very much going to be a part of the campaign, and the Donald Trump campaign’s going to do everything to make him an issue in the campaign,” Schmidt said.Last week Fox News reported on the newly uncovered flight logs from Epstein’s jet.“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, the author the book on Epstein, which is titled “TrafficKing.”“Why would a former president associate with a man like that?” Sarnoff urged.Sarnoff appeared on the Alex Jones show last week to discuss the Epstein case
