Investigative journalist Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News' Shannon Bream on Monday night that there were "underage girls" on accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's plane when former President Bill Clinton traveled on it — at times without his Secret Service detail.
Fox News' Lukas Mikelionis reports that Sarnoff is the executive director of Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking and is the author of the book "TrafficKing: The Jeffrey Epstein Case." The Fox News segment followed the recent developments in the Epstein case that have occured after the financier was arrested on Saturday on child sex trafficking charges.
Sarnoff made the remarks in response to the following statement from Clinton on Monday:
President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York. In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation. Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and he has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.
"I have read too much information and I have spoken to too many people on the inside," Sarnoff said. "I actually attempted to interview Clinton but he did not agree to do so and I know from the pilot logs and these are pilot logs that you know were written by different pilots and at different times, that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein's 27 times."
"Many of those times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many times he did not," Sarnoff continued. "Almost every time that Clinton's name is on the pilot logs there are underage girls there are initials and there are names of many many girls on that private plane."
Bream pressed Sarnoff, noting that Clinton's statement did not match up with what she was saying.
"Are you saying the former president is not telling the truth?" Bream asked Sarnoff.
"Yes, I'm saying, sadly, that he is not telling the truth," Sarnoff responded.
