New images have surfaced that show former President Bill Clinton receiving a neck massage from one of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers while preparing to travel with the disgraced pedophile on his private plane, as Breitbart reports.
The photos were taken in a airport back in 2002 as Clinton was set to depart on a humanitarian venture to Africa. The alleged victim, Chauntae Davis, was Epstein’s personal masseuse and was 22 years old at the time.
Davis recalled that Clinton had been complaining of a stiff neck after falling asleep in a chair, and Ghislaine Maxwell asked her to massage him. “Would you mind giving it a crack?” Clinton asked, according to Davis.
Epstein has been accused of sexually abusing and raping Davis her during her time in his employ, as NPR reported.
“A perfect gentleman”
While the photos are raising renewed questions about Clinton’s relationship with Epstein, Davis said that Clinton was “a perfect gentleman” on the trip in question and that she never observed any abuse or misconduct on his part, according to the Daily Mail.
Epstein was a major donor to both of the former president’s national campaigns, and Clinton’s own history as the subject of accusations of sexual impropriety and his acknowledgement of a consensual sexual relationship with a very young Monica Lewinsky while in office have led some observers to assume he was likely involved in Epstein’s salacious activities.
Clinton has denied ever traveling to Epstein’s private island where the sexual trafficking of girls, including some who were underage, was said to have occurred, but another Epstein accuser, Virginia Giuffre, has claimed that he was indeed there on at least one occasion when two young females were also present, as Newsweek reported.
A spokesperson for the former president said in a statement back in 2019 that Clinton never knew anything about Epstein’s trafficking of women and girls and that he had never been to the billionaire financier’s island, Newsweek further noted.
Photos coincide with convention speech
Clinton has admitted to making only four trips on Epstein’s plane, all for humanitarian trips, but flight logs released to Gawker show that he took at least 11 trips on the plane, Newsweek reported.
The massage photos were released just as Clinton was set to give a speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night and were seen by some as intended to detract from his appearance.
During his convention remarks, Clinton blasted President Donald Trump over his behavior in the Oval Office, saying it should be a “command center,” but is instead a “storm center.” That is indeed rich coming from the person who received sexual favors from an impressionable college intern in that very office.
Even liberal comedian Steven Colbert opined on his program that this was an interesting choice of criticism for the former president to level against Trump, saying, “I don’t think Bill Clinton gets to lecture anyone on what should happen in the Oval Office. Those in glass houses should not be allowed near the interns.”
