Epstein Claim: He helped set up the Clinton Global Initiative

2016 story – The Daily Mail [UK] –

Billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein once claimed he helped found Clinton Foundation as he touted close relationship with former president during plea bargain negotiations

  • Financier Jeffrey Epstein spent just 13 months in jail for soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008 in a plea bargain
  • During plea negotiations, his lawyers had emphasized his close relationship with Bill Clinton
  • A 2007 letter to the Florida State Attorney’s office claims that Epstein helped set up the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative
  • But the former president credited longtime assistant and Foundation director Doug Band with the idea for the Initiative
  • Epstein is not listed as a director or founder on the non-profit’s documents but did give $25,000 through his Swiss bank account
  • The convicted sex offender’s lawyers also mentioned Clinton had been a guest on his jet during a charitable trip to Africa
  • Foundation also came under scrutiny as critics question how much of the donations goes towards the causes
