A  spokesman for Bill Clinton said Friday that the former president “never” went to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s island in the Caribbean, Little St. James.

Documents unsealed late Thursday night contain statements of Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who told an attorney that the former president visited Epstein’s private island. Giuffre did not describe Clinton committing crimes, but she notes that orgies were routine activities on the island.

Clinton has not responded to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation, but a spokesman for the former president told Newsweek that Clinton had “never been to Little St. James Island.”

“He’d not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade,” spokesman Angel Ureña told the publication. “Well before his terrible crimes came to light.” (RELATED: Report: Jeffrey Epstein Allegedly Had A Portrait Of Bill Clinton Posing Provocatively In A Blue Dress)

Ureña also referred Newsweek to a July 2019 statement from Clinton on the matter, in which Clinton denied ever going to Little St. James, Epstein’s Florida residence, or Epstein’s New Mexico ranch.

“You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here [on the island],” Giuffre said, the court documents show. Giuffre said Epstein laughed at her question and said, “Well, he owes me a favor.”

“He never told me what favors they were,” Giuffre said. “I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”

The Epstein accuser said that while Clinton was on Epstein’s private island, Epstein’s cohort and ex-lover, Ghislaine Maxwell, someone named Emmy, and two “young girls” from New York were also present, the court documents show.

According to Giuffre, Clinton and other visitors to the island did not stay in the main house but stayed in villas on the island. (RELATED: Epstein’s Ponzi Scheme Partner Says Ghislaine Maxwell Will ‘Crack In Two Seconds’ And Cooperate With Feds)

Flight logs show that Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s “Lolita Express,” a jet that reportedly includes a bed where passengers could have group sex with girls, Fox News reported in May 2016. The former president left his Secret Service detail behind on a least five of these flights, according to Fox News.
