Networks Ignore New Details of Bill Clinton’s Connections to Pedophile Epstein

During their Tuesday evening newscasts, all of the “big three” networks ignored explosive new details about former President Bill Clinton’s relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein. “It’s no secret that former President Bill Clinton had a relationship with Jeffrey Epstein,” reported Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Special Report, “A prominent businessman who went to jail as part of a plea deal he reached while being investigated amid allegations that he was a pedophile, who had sex with scores of underage girls and used his staff to procure the victims.”

According to Bream, it was known that the former president had traveled on Epstein’s private jet 11 times. “A jet accusers say was equipped for sex with underage victims and was used to travel to Epstein's private island nicknamed “Orgy Island,” Bream stated.

But, newly released documents revealed that Clinton had traveled at least 26 times using Epstein’s aircraft to locations “around the globe.” The documents didn’t stop there. “On at least five occasions that they did travel together, Secret Service did not accompany Clinton,” Bream continued.

“You don't just dismiss Secret Service detail. Paperwork has to be filed. There's an accounting of why the dismissal,” said SiriusXM radio host David Webb in Bream’s report, “In this case there isn't paperwork and the Secret Service is not responding to the FOIA requests.”

Friends to the Clinton family argued that, it’s clear the only reason the story was being brought up is to hurt Hillary Clinton’s general election chances. “This is Trump trying to attack the character of the candidate by attacking the character of the spouse. And I think that's unusual and I think it will backfire,” said former Bill Clinton aide David Goodfriend in the Fox News report.

In addition, neither Univision nor Telemundo reported on the new details of Clinton’s relationship with Epstein.

BRET BAIER: Back to presidential politics. Now, there are indications that as Bill Clinton becomes a more prominent factor in his wife's campaign, some of the former president's leisure time pursuits could be become major fodder for discussion. Especially if the prospective GOP nominee has anything to say about it. Chief Legal Correspondent Shannon Bream is here tonight with that story.

DAVID WEBB: There's smoke. And where there's smoke it's worthy of an investigation.

SHANNON BREAM: It’s no secret that former President Bill Clinton had a relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. A prominent businessman who went to jail as part of a plea deal he reached while being investigated amid allegations that he was a pedophile, who had sex with scores of underage girls and used his staff to procure the victims.

Previous accounts stated Clinton flew with Epstein on his jet 11 times. A jet accusers say was equipped for sex with underage victims and was used to travel to Epstein's private island nicknamed “Orgy Island.” Newly obtained documents show Clinton actually took at least 26 flights on Epstein's private jet to spots around the globe. Though apparently not after Epstein's plea deal and jail time. On at least five occasions that they did travel together, Secret Service did not accompany Clinton.

WEBB: You don't just dismiss Secret Service detail. Paperwork has to be filed. There's an accounting of why the dismissal. In this case there isn't paperwork and the Secret Service is not responding to the FOIA requests.

BREAM: Clinton friends and supporters say dredging up the Epstein story now is nothing but a political stunt.

DAVID GOODFRIEND: From now until Election Day everything is politics.

BREAM: David Goodfriend served as an aide to President Clinton during his years in the White House. He believes Donald Trump and GOP lead remembers driving the Epstein story in an effort to tarnish Hillary Clinton. And predicts the American people won't take the bait.

GOODFRIEND: This is Trump trying to attack the character of the candidate by attacking the character of the spouse. And I think that's unusual and I think it will backfire.

BREAM: Across the media spectrum though, analysts and pundits say the Epstein story isn't going away.

DONNY DEUTSCH: I'm just telling it like it is. That's, that is the new story that is going to be the ultimate counterattack.
