Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is incensed that her husband, former President Bill Clinton, has been tied to sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who’s also at the heart of an investigation into Prince Andrew’s alleged sexual dalliances with a minor, the New York Post reported.
The sources told the Post they witnessed at the funeral of Mario Cuomo an obviously upset Mrs. Clinton “storm” past her husband, who waited for her at the door of St. Ignatius Loyola Church.
“Talk in Washington is that Hillary is furious with Bill about all this new information on Jeffrey Epstein,” the source told the newspaper.
Court documents related to a suit filed by Virginia Roberts, who alleges Mr. Epstein paid her $15,000 to have sex with the prince, also included several references to Mr. Clinton. The documents from 2011 show that Mr. Epstein had 21 different email and telephone numbers for Mr. Clinton and an aide in his directory.
The court documents also show Mr. Clinton “frequently flew” with Mr. Epstein on his private plane between 2002 and 2005. The court documents say that Mr. Clinton “suddenly stopped, raising the suspicion that the friendship abruptly ended, perhaps because of events related to Epstein’s sexual abuse of children,” the Post reported.
Mrs. Clinton, widely considered the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential bid, is reportedly outraged that her husband’s name has again popped up in a sex scandal.
Sources told the Post that Mr. Clinton was “waiting by the front door for a long time” at Cuomo’s ceremony.
“People assumed he was waiting for Matilda Cuomo. But then Hillary came storming in right past him,” and she didn’t look happy with him at all, one source told the Post.
Mrs. Clinton’s spokesperson denied the former secretary of state was upset, calling the talk “utter nonsense,” the Post reported.
The prince, meanwhile, and Buckingham Palace officials have denied any allegations of underage sexual escapades and have counter-sued Ms. Roberts. Epstein, who is a registered sex offender, spent more than a year in prison for soliciting a minor-age girl for prostitution about five years ago.
