A new book, “A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein” by Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper, is reporting that former president Bill Clinton was allegedly carrying on an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman behind Epstein, alleged to have procured girls for Epstein.

According to an excerpt from the book, Maxwell was at Clinton’s side during trips that the former president took with Epstein aboard his plane not just to help out but because they were having a relationship.

From the NY Post:

“[Bill] and Ghislaine were getting it on,” a source who witnessed the relationship said in an interview. “That’s why he was around Epstein—to be with her.”

The source explained that reporters have been missing the point about the Clinton- Epstein relationship by focusing on Epstein’s sex crimes. “[Clinton’s] stupid but not an idiot,” the source says, dismissing the idea that the ex- president was sexually involved with children.

Clinton’s primary interest in Epstein was the woman he once dated and who allegedly helped procure her ex-boyfriend’s future victims.

“You couldn’t hang out with her without being with him,” the source said of the Epstein-Clinton relationship.

“Clinton just used him like everything else,” the source explains.

In other words, he was using Epstein as a cover. Well, if that’s true, that didn’t work out so well.

According to the book, the relationship continued in New York City including at Maxwell’s house in Manhattan. Clinton was mentioned as dining with her in 2002 at an Italian restaurant in the city and she also reportedly attended a charity gala with him in late 2001. It was during this period of time when he also had the 26 flights on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express.’ Maxwell was even invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding in 2010.

She also reportedly attended Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation events. At one of them, she was even served with papers for a deposition regarding Epstein’s actions. (She ended up being able to avoid the deposition.)

As we reported earlier, according to a new Netflix documentary, two witnesses, Virginia Giuffre and Steve Scully, also claim that Clinton was at ‘Orgy Island’ with Epstein, although Giuffre says she didn’t see him do anything wrong. Clinton’s spokesperson has denied that claim.

Is this true? Or is it a source leaking an explanation for his frequent presence next to Epstein? At this point they may figure an affair isn’t going to hurt him but more unexplained connections to Epstein and/or being placed at ‘Orgy Island’ might. But if it is true after everything else, one has to imagine that Hillary Clinton is not going to be a happy camper right now. Bill better hide all the books and lamps so they don’t get launched at him.
