In the middle of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal last year, information came out that one of Epstein’s victims had seen former president Bill Clinton on Little St. James Island, the island that has come to be known simply as “Epstein’s Island.”
But Bill Clinton denied that he had ever been on the island. Not only that, but he tried to downplay the number of times he’d been on Epstein’s plane. Clinton’s spokesperson said he’d only taken “4 trips” without explaining that within the “four trips,” he’d been on the plane over 25 times, and that’s just according to the records that were made public.
But now, Doug Band, one of the people closest to Bill Clinton over the years, first as his body man and then as the guy working on his post-presidency lucrative endeavors, has dropped a big bombshell on those Bill Clinton denials. Band who was almost seemed an adopted son and was with him all the time would be the man who knew and could comment authoritatively on where he was. Band is now admitting that Clinton went to the island, contrary to what Clinton has said, according to Vanity Fair.
Band told me he had been trying to push Epstein out of Clinton’s orbit ever since their much-discussed 2002 trip to Africa aboard Epstein’s private 727, dubbed the “Lolita Express.” Band recalled that Epstein had made a bunch of ridiculous claims on the trip, like boasting that he invented the derivatives market. Band said he had no idea about Epstein’s sex crimes back then but got enough bad vibes that he advised Clinton to end the relationship. But Clinton continued to socialize with Epstein and take his money. In 2006 Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton made more than two dozen trips on Epstein’s jet around this time, Epstein’s flight logs show. In January 2003, according to Band, Clinton visited Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St. James. Band said it was one of the few trips he declined to go on in his time with Clinton.
Clinton’s people denied it, showing travelogue entries from the time period that didn’t include a visit. Band had a parting of the ways with Clinton and they haven’t spoken since 2015.
But there’s more.
Sources told me that Ghislaine Maxwell flew Clinton in her helicopter to “Little St. Jeff’s” with secret service en tow. Also, @vrsvirginia has long said she saw Clinton on #epstein’s island but wasn’t trafficked to him. https://t.co/whHPmfgtnE

Whoops, even more people.
Not to mention Chelsea Clinton’s connections to Epstein and Maxwell.
Chelsea had ties to Epstein and Maxwell, Band said; he showed me a photo of Bill and Chelsea posing with Epstein and Maxwell at the King of Morocco’s wedding. Chelsea remained friends with Maxwell for years after the press revealed Maxwell was a close associate of Epstein’s. For instance, Chelsea invited Maxwell to her 2010 wedding at the Brooke Astor estate in Rhinebeck, New York, after Epstein had pleaded guilty in Florida to procuring sex from a minor.
“Ghislaine had access to yachts and nice homes. Chelsea needed that,” Band told me.
That’s going to leave a mark too.
It really isn’t hard to believe that Bill Clinton would have lied about this. It’s just a question of what being on the island “is,” right?
