Former U.S. President Bill Clinton “could not stay away” from the private island of child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, his former chief aide revealed.
During a shocking interview with Vanity Fair, Doug Band, who worked for Clinton for some two decades, confirmed that the Democratic leader flew dozens of times in Epstein’s jet, infamously nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”
Although Clinton said he only flew on the plane four times, Band’s recent statements coincide with records obtained by Fox News, which indicate that Clinton traveled at least 26 times on the jet.
Band was 22 when he got an unpaid internship at the White House attorney’s office halfway through Clinton’s first term. He worked alongside him every day for nearly 20 years, first as a consultant and then as one of the main architects of his lucrative and often tense post-presidency.
Later, they fell out and now, for the first time since he left Clinton’s orbit, Band said of his days with Clinton.
“I don’t want anything to do with that whole world,” he said in dialogue with Vanity.
The Link to Epstein
Band said that after a trip to Africa in 2002, Epstein left a bad impression on him.
He explained that, at the time, he was unaware of Epstein’s aberrant crimes, for which the billionaire was convicted years later.
He indicated that after that trip he tried—in vain—to keep Clinton away from the pedophile who died in 2019.
“Band said he had no idea about Epstein’s sex crimes back then but got enough bad vibes that he advised Clinton to end the relationship,” said journalist Gabriel Sherman in his Vanity report.
However, “Clinton continued to socialize with Epstein and take his money,” Band said. In fact, the financier donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2006.
Band also noted that Ghislaine Maxwell was invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding in 2010, despite the fact that Epstein was known to have committed sex crimes with underage girls and, in fact, had been convicted of doing so two years earlier.
According to Sherman’s report, Chelsea had ties to Epstein and Maxwell. In fact, Clinton’s daughter remained friends with Epstein’s former partner after it was revealed that she was one of the youth recruiters for the pedophile’s sex parties.

According to Band himself, from 2011 he advised Clinton’s staff to distance themselves from Maxwell as well.
“I knew in telling everyone to stop including Ghislaine that Chelsea and her father would be very angry,” Band said.

Clinton and the Island of Pedophiles
Bill Clinton has denied ever visiting Little St. James, the Caribbean island of the child sex trafficker dubbed “Pedophile Island” by locals and authorities.
However, Band said that in January 2003 Clinton visited the infamous island located in the Virgin Islands.
The former adviser said that it was one of the few trips he refused to take while working with Clinton.
Despite Clinton’s denial, Band’s revealing words add up, in fact, to court documents that have come to light in the Ghislaine Maxwell case, where a witness said—in a sworn statement—that he saw the former Democratic president on Epstein’s island with Maxwell and “two young girls.”
Also in the files are statements from a former worker on Epstein’s island corroborating this fact.
As it has transpired, and continues to be investigated, Epstein’s private island was the site of multiple sexual assaults on underage girls by convicted pedophile Epstein and his elite guests.
