Bill Clinton's Name to Be Revealed in Epstein Documents
The imminent unsealing of the Jeffrey Epstein files, scheduled for this week, may provide further insight into the extent of the relationship between the convicted sex offender and former President Bill Clinton.
The documents are part of the defamation case brought by Virginia Roberts against Ghislaine Maxwell.

Roberts has previously asserted that Clinton visited Epstein's private island, Little St. James, a claim echoed by Clinton's former aide Doug Band.
While Roberts settled with Maxwell, the unsealed records, totaling hundreds of pages, are expected to reveal the names of 177 individuals involved in the case and illuminate Epstein's sex trafficking network.
Some redacted documents indicate a contentious dispute between lawyers for Roberts and Maxwell over Clinton's alleged visit to the island. Maxwell sought to use the claim at trial to challenge Roberts's credibility, asserting that Clinton had never been to Little St. James.
Clinton, who had been friends with Epstein since 2002, took two trips on Epstein's private jet, known as the "Lolita Express." Photos from one of these trips show Clinton receiving a massage from one of Epstein's victims, Chauntae Davies.
Epstein, an early investor in Clinton's philanthropic efforts, was also invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding in 2010, despite being a convicted sex offender at that point.
The relationship between Epstein and Clinton became a focal point during the defamation case, with Maxwell's lawyers attempting to portray Roberts as dishonest.
In a manuscript for her memoir, Roberts described witnessing Clinton on the island, accompanied by two women. She mentioned Clinton's playful interactions with the women and suggested that the absence of his wife, Hillary Clinton, allowed for a more provocative atmosphere.
In a deposition, Roberts claimed the visit occurred after Clinton's presidency and that Epstein joked, "He owes me a favor," when asked about Clinton's presence.
The unsealed documents also reveal that on June 9, 2016, Roberts's lawyers sought Clinton's testimony, considering it crucial and highly relevant to the case.
