(TMU) – Former president Bill Clinton reportedly met with accused sex-trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell for an “intimate” dinner in 2014, which is many years after her illegal activities with Jeffrey Epstein were well-known to authorities and the media.
A source told The Daily Beast that “This is an intimate dinner with Clinton in LA. Think of all the people [Clinton] knows in LA — and Ghislaine gets to attend.”
Another source confirmed the meeting with The Daily Beast journalist and added that Clinton’s PR team was relieved that the meeting didn’t make the headlines at the time, since Maxwell’s relationship with Epstein was already public knowledge.
The pair reportedly met at Crossroads Kitchen, a hotspot for celebrities and millionaires on Melrose Avenue. On the night of their meeting, famous actors like Bruce Willis and Sean Penn were also in the building.
Clinton and Maxwell met with mutual friend Steve Bing, a producer and major Democratic donor who killed himself earlier this year. It is not clear if his suicide had anything to do with his involvement in people like Ghislaine Maxwell.
“They’re always fighting against the reporting and not that they did it. That’s the problem,” one friend of the Clintons told the site anonymously.
In a new book called “A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein,” authors Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper claim that Clinton was having an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell, who was just recently taken into custody over her involvement with the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein.
Clinton continued to carry on a relationship with both Maxwell and Epstein for long after they were both exposed as sex offenders. In fact, Maxwell was served court papers relating to the Epstein trafficking ring in 2009 while she was attending the Clinton Global Initiative at the Sheraton Hotel in New York City.
Just a few months later, Maxwell attended Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, and Bill continued his relationship with both of them for many years despite the public knowledge of their crimes.
Journalist Conchita Sarnoff wrote in her book TrafficKing that Maxwell was ironically served her court papers during a Clinton charity event for human trafficking.
“Ironically, photographs of Maxwell taken by a private investigator who accompanied the process server showed Maxwell receiving notice while standing beneath a human trafficking banner. Human trafficking was the Conference’s theme at the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative,” she wrote
Recent reports have suggested that Maxwell is prepared to fully cooperate with investigators and name the names of high profile individuals who took part in Epstein’s human trafficking ring.
In an interview with The Sun, Epstein’s former employer Steven Hoffenberg said that Maxwell ‘knows everything’ and will ‘totally co-operate’ after her arrest.
A set of documents that were unsealed from a previous civil trial between Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre, one of the most public and outspoken of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, indicated that Clinton was seen on Epstein’s private island with two young girls. In her testimony, Guiffre said that she remembered Epstein telling her that Bill Clinton owed him some favors.
