Bill Clinton’s attempts to reinvent himself after a period of political exile have imploded.
And as usual, the misstep involves sex.
That’s because Bill Clinton’s name just came up in one lawsuit and this ugly sex scandal.
Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democrat National Convention was an attempt to reestablish himself as a force in American politics after two years off in the shadows because of the #MeToo movement.
But Clinton’s attempted comeback was continually marred by his connection to the late alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
On the day of Clinton’s speech, photos of one of Epstein’s accusers giving him a neck massage were leaked to the Daily Mail.
The day after Clinton spoke, a lawsuit by one of Esptein’s accusers claimed Epstein threatened to ruin her life and mentioned his association with Bill Clinton to subject her to “prolonged sexual assault” when she was just 15-years-old.
The Daily Caller reports:
Through the name dropping, the lawsuit alleges, “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,” the Post reported.
“Using this overwhelming power he had over Jane Doe 15, Epstein subjected her to a vicious, prolonged sexual assault,” the accuser said, the publication reported.
“Epstein made clear to Jane Doe 15 how powerful he was,” the lawsuit filed against Epstein’s estate reportedly said. “He made a point of mentioning that he was close with Bill Clinton.”
This scandal will haunt Bill Clinton for the rest of his days.
Clinton has lied about how many times he traveled with Epstein, how long he’s known him and when they first met.
There will be no political rehabilitation for Bill Clinton because the questions surrounding his friendship with Epstein will never go away.
