The Jeffrey Epstein scandal is not going away anytime soon.
It does not look like Epstein took his secrets to the grave.
And this Jeffrey Epstein blackmail scheme raised one terrifying question about Bill Clinton.
Americans have never received a straight answer from Bill Clinton about his relationship with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Now the public is again examining that relationship — as well as other relationships Epstein had with wealthy and famous men — after a bombshell Wall Street Journal report that back in 2017 Epstein tried to blackmail Microsoft founder Bill Gates over an affair Gates carried out with a Russian bridge player back in 2011.
A statement from a Gates spokeswoman confirmed both the affair and the attempted blackmail by Epstein.
“Mr. Gates met with Epstein solely for philanthropic purposes. Having failed repeatedly to draw Mr. Gates beyond these matters, Epstein tried unsuccessfully to leverage a past relationship to threaten Mr. Gates,” a spokeswoman for Gates told the Wall Street Journal.
Gates met Russian Mila Antonova while playing bridge in 2011.
Antonova later attempted to convince Epstein to invest $500,000 in a website she unsuccessfully tried to launch to teach people to play bridge.
When that failed, Epstein covered the cost of Antonova’s tuition to a coding bootcamp where she learned to build websites.
Antonova expressed regret for ever having come in contact with Epstein.
“I had no idea that he was a criminal or had any ulterior motive,” Antonova stated. “I just thought he was a successful businessman and wanted to help.” She added: “I am disgusted with Epstein and what he did.”
In 2017, Epstein then emailed Gates demanding he pay back Epstein for the cost of Antonova’s tuition to the coding bootcamp.
The email heavily implied that Epstein knew about Gates’ affair with Antonova and threatened to expose Gates if he did not reimburse Epstein.
Antonova could not understand why Epstein — who was a billionaire — would demand Gates repay him such a trivial sum of money.
“Epstein agreed to pay and he paid directly to the school. Nothing was exchanged. I don’t know why he did that,” Antonova added. “When I asked, he said something like, he was wealthy and wanted to help people when he could.”
The world will never know the answer to that question because Epstein died under mysterious circumstances.
But the episode does show that Epstein was willing to leverage the knowledge of his friends’ sex lives.
And many are now wondering if Epstein could have blackmailed the Clintons with anything he knew about Bill if Hillary had won the presidency in 2016.
Would Americans have lived under a compromised chief executive if Epstein knew of any alleged Bill Clinton affairs or other unsavory details Epstein could have gleaned from his time traveling with the former president?
