President Donald Trump answered questions in New Jersey on Tuesday, Aug. 13 over the Clintons connection with Epstein. The questions come after a retweet from the president over the weekend of a well respected conservative pundit Terrance K Williams, suggesting Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Speaking to reporters in New Jersey as he left for a rally in Pennsylvania, Trump said it was just “a retweet,” and “from somebody that’s very respected,” adding, he thinks it “was fine.”
The president was then asked by reporters if he thinks the Clintons were involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s death. “I have no idea. I know he was on his plane 27 times and he said he was on the plane four times. But when they checked the plane log, Bill Clinton, who was a very good friend of Epstein’s, was on the plane about 27 or 28 times,” said President Trump.
Although the president said he has “no idea” if the Clinton’s played any role in Epstein’s death. He makes it very clear once the can of worms is opened on Bill Clinton there will be a lot of worms coming out. He said, “Epstein had an island and it was not a good place, as I understand it. I was never there. So you have to ask: Did Bill Clinton go to the island? That’s the question. If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot,” he added.
The president also backed and supported his retweet of Terrance K. Williams. The well respected conservative commentator with half a million followers on Twitter who believed in speaking out on the Epstein case and felt it was important to expose what he believes is the truth. President Trump said, “He’s very highly respected.”
As the Epstein case continues with the president asked for a “full investigation.” Attorney General Bill Barr is heading the investigation. Barr, said on Monday, “Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. Victims deserve justice and will get it.” He added, “We will get to the bottom of it, and there will be accountability.”
