The contested 2020 election has grabbed headlines across the world — and it allowed another shocking story to fly under the radar.
A longtime confidant of former President Bill Clinton came forward to unveil explosive allegations this week.
Doug Band, who served as Clinton’s “right-hand man” for decades, detailed the former president’s deep connections to billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein in an interview with Vanity Fair.
And that’s not all.
Band also made a stunning confession about the “cult” that the Clinton family had formed around them.
Band is not just some disgruntled former intern. According to Vanity Fair, Band spent more time with the former president than even Hillary or Chelsea Clinton.
“Band virtually invented Clinton’s postpresidential life. He set up Clinton’s Harlem office, helped launch the Clinton Foundation, and created the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), the annual Davos-style conference that Clinton hosted in New York. Band and Clinton circled the globe in a private jet with a Rat Pack of billionaires that included supermarket magnate Ron Burkle, movie producer Steve Bing, and, infamously, Jeffrey Epstein,” Vanity Fair wrote.
The Horn News reported previously that the former president took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s private plane — nicknamed the “Lolita Express” — between 2001 and 2003, and five times he left behind his Secret Service detail.
In January, a photo of Bill Clinton posing with one of Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking victims on the plane went viral.
Clinton has repeatedly denied taking frequent trips to Epstein’s infamous private island.
It wasn’t just the former president that was cozy with the Epstein world, Band said. Chelsea Clinton was close friends with Epstein’s alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was charged for her role in Epstein’s international sex trafficking scheme earlier this year.
Chelsea and Ghislaine were so close, she was even invited to the former first daughter’s exclusive wedding.
“Ghislaine had access to yachts and nice homes. Chelsea needed that,” Band said.
His relationship with the Clinton’s began to deteriorate as Chelsea rose to power in the family’s various organizations and they began to compete for the former president’s attention. According to the report, the rivalry between the two became very heated after Chelsea demanded an ownership stake in one of the Band’s companies in 201 — a move he described as a “shakedown.”
A Clinton spokesman said Band’s representation of the Clinton family was inaccurate.
But Band said Clinton insiders simply can’t be believed.
“It’s like a cult, that world,” Band said. “It’s hard to get yourself out and difficult to see outside of it. And it’s even harder to understand that when you’re inside.”
