Bill Clinton isn’t the only rich, influential “Bill” with connections to now-deceased (suicided?) Jeffrey Epstein.
Flight records show that Bill Gates flew on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” from New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013.
This was four years after Epstein was released from prison for sex trafficking!
Now, when confronted about the subject, Bill Gates and his spokepeople are refusing to give an answer as to why Gates rode with Epstein on the plane.
I guess he’s hoping the whole thing just blows over!
Daily Mail has more information on this:
Bill Gates is hoping to ride out the storm, one week after it was revealed he had hitched a ride on Jeffrey Epstein's plane.
The billionaire was the chairman of Microsoft at the time he traveled with Epstein on the Lolita Express in 2013, four years after the pedophile served time for soliciting a minor under the age of 18 for sex.
Flight records reveal that Gates flew with Epstein from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013, one of the few flights that year where pilot Larry Viskoski recorded the name of a passenger.
A representative for Gates has not responded to requests for comment, beyond claiming that the once-richest man in the world never had any financial or charitable ties to Epstein.
The pairing is an odd one given the work Melinda Gates and the couple's foundation does for young women around the world.
And it is known that the two had spent time together previously, most notably at the annual Edge Dinner, which each year welcomes billionaires from around the world to come together and discuss advancements they are working in on the worlds of math, science and technology.
In fact, the 2013 dinner took place just two nights before they flew to Florida, though neither of the men are pictured attending that year's event.
Epstein did claim he worked as a financial adviser to Gates for some time, but that claim was later shot down by the Microsoft founder's representative.
The two men do however both own property in southern Florida, where Epstein had two homes including a $12 million Palm Beach mansion and Gates owns a five-property compound in Wellington that he purchased for a total of $40 million.
In a biography that was published on the website for Edge, but later deleted, it is noted that Epstein 'founded the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation in 2000 to fund and support cutting edge science around the world.'
He is also said to be 'one of the largest supporters of individual scientists, including theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and Nobel Laureates Gerard ‘t Hooft, David Gross and Frank Wilczek.'
In an alarming addition, the biography then states that Epstein has taken 'an active role in supporting education across the United States as well as philanthropy in the US Virgin Islands, where the foundation is based.'
Business Insider also said:
Bill Gates is the latest high-profile figure to be linked to the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
According to a new report from CNBC published on Wednesday, the Microsoft cofounder met Epstein to "discuss ways to increase philanthropic spending" several years after Epstein was jailed over charges relating to underage prostitution.
The meeting took place in New York in 2013, according to CNBC, and is further evidence of how Epstein was able to make connections in elite society — even after he became a convicted sex offender.
Flight logs also show that Gates and Epstein flew from New York to Palm Beach, Florida, in March 2013, with no other passengers on the plane; CNBC reported that this flight took place after the pair met and was so Gates could go see his family.
