Trump defends sharing Clinton-Epstein conspiracy theory [View all]

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended his decision to share a tweet suggesting Bill and Hillary Clinton were involved in financier Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, and stoked speculation about the former president’s relationship with the deceased convicted sex offender.

“The retweet — which is what it was, just a retweet — was from somebody that’s a very respected conservative pundit, so I think that was fine,” Trump told reporters, referring to a conspiratorial message by comedian and commentator Terrence K. Williams he re-posted Saturday.

The president has been criticized in recent days for promulgating the unfounded theory that the Clintons had a hand in Epstein’s death. Trump said Tuesday he had “no idea” whether the couple played a role in the high-profile prisoner’s demise and accused Bill Clinton of lying about the extent of his air travel on Epstein’s planes.

“I know he was on his plane 27 times, and he said he was on the plane four times,” Trump said. “But when they checked the plane logs, Bill Clinton — who was a very good friend of Epstein — he was on the plane about 27 or 28 times. So why did he say four times?”
