Jeffrey Epstein said Bill Clinton ‘likes them young,’ accuser testified

In a deposition that was recently made public, Jeffrey Epstein reportedly claimed that former President Bill Clinton had a preference for “young” girls. This information comes from Johanna Sjoberg, one of Epstein’s victims, during a civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s associate.

The deposition, part of a series of documents unsealed related to Maxwell’s case, includes Sjoberg’s account of Epstein’s comments about Clinton. “He said one time that Clinton likes them young, referring to girls,” Sjoberg stated. This testimony was given on May 18, 2016, during a lawsuit initiated by Virginia Giuffre against Maxwell, accusing her of defamation for denying claims of trafficking.

Sjoberg also corroborated some aspects of Giuffre’s allegations, including an incident involving Prince Andrew. She described an episode where Andrew allegedly used a puppet to touch Giuffre inappropriately, while also touching Sjoberg. Prince Andrew has consistently denied these allegations and settled a separate lawsuit with Giuffre in 2022.

Clinton, who has expressed regret over his past association with Epstein, has not been accused of any criminal wrongdoing in relation to the Epstein case. His spokesperson, Angel Ureña, reiterated Clinton’s stance, emphasizing that the former president knew “nothing about the terrible crimes” Epstein committed and had not been in contact with Epstein for nearly two decades.

The unsealing of these documents is seen as a significant step in understanding the extent of Epstein’s s*x tr*fficking network. Sigrid McCawley, Giuffre’s attorney, stated that revealing these documents is crucial for the public to comprehend the scale of Epstein’s operations and to aid in the broader fight against s*x tr*fficking.

Sjoberg’s testimony also touched on her knowledge of Epstein’s connections with Clinton, noting that she wasn’t aware of their friendship until reading about their travels together. She also mentioned not recalling seeing Clinton on Epstein’s private island, a point that contradicts some reports.

The unsealing of these documents marks a significant development in the Epstein case, revealing the names of approximately 170 associates, including powerful figures and victims. The legal battles continue as Maxwell serves a 20-year sentence following her conviction, and Epstein’s own legal reckoning was cut short by his death in jail in 2019.
