So right now Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign hinges on whether there are pictures.

Oh, dear.

Former President Bill Clinton took a romantic jaunt in 2002 to convicted pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein’s “orgy island” with “two young girls” from New York, according to a shocking new interview.

Virginia Roberts, who’s accused Epstein of turning her into a “sex slave” at age 17 and forcing her to sleep with his powerful friends, claimed Clinton stayed in one of the many villas on Epstein’s US Virgin Islands estate — where group sex was a “regular occurrence.”

No, really, if there are pictures then it’s over for Hillary Clinton. I really don’t want to believe that a former President of the United States ever had sex with an underaged girl, and if Bill Clinton has any brains at all he’d have demanded to see ID before he shtupped anybody – but put him on that island, and Hillary Clinton will look like an enabling fool. And thus she won’t win the Democratic primary.

If there are pictures.

PS: I understand the need for healthy pessimism, or at least the desire for it, but too much is just as bad as too little. If the Left was as good as some people seem to think it is they would have won already and we wouldn’t be having this conversation in this particular form.

  1. I have been following this in the Brit papers, both because they give better and more even handed coverage of American political events than the American media [if only because they dislike both sides] and because since Prince Andrew is directly accused of schtupping an underage party favor and probably will be forced to testify under oath it is front page news. [n.b. I bet the Royal Christmas dinner was …. special.]

    Apparently, the main villa, and the equivalent of cabanas were wired for audio and video or so it is claimed. There may well be pictures, and then some. I also note that they have Clinton on the passenger list for multiple flights down to the island.

    The question will be whether those will see the light of day if they exist. Epstein got off amazingly lightly. He was originally charged by police with 4 counts of unlawful sex with minors and 1 of child molestation. Over the objection of police, this was dropped down to 1 count of solicitation of prostitution. For which he served 13 months of a 18 month sentence.

    This invocation of the Constitution’s hidden “well-connected persons clause” may have been because, after all he is a billionaire. Or it may be because he has “leverage” over other connected persons. In any case between now and any putative election; if the videos exist, their appearance would probably be related to the health and status of one Jeffrey Epstein. If he suddenly is “rehabilitated”, the videos are probably destroyed in return for that rehabilitation. If something happens to him, they may be destroyed or they may be released as revenge. And if President Clinton pardons him upon taking office, that will tell a tale.

  2. “If the Left was as good as some people seem to think it is they would have won already and we wouldn’t be having this conversation in this particular form.”

    This is something I have thought – if the Left, with its control of media and academia can only do this – then the Left is pretty fragile over-all.

  3. If you think JFK didn’t have sex with underaged girls, you probably need to rethink that.
    Okay, I’m not exactly an expert on what exactly the legal age was in various jurisdictions fifty plus years back.

    1. In much of the country back in 1960 it was common to get married as young as 15. I think Virginia still has age of consent at 15. It really needs to be raised, but VA Dems have placed sexual gratification above every other principle, so it won’t.

  4. 2002… Gore lost, Hillary was off playing carpetbagger, the future of Team Clinton was looking semi-bleak, and I seem to recall trial balloons floating that Hillary was dumping him… It’s entirely conceivable Bill got … bored.
    That said, I still find it hard to believe he’d not ask someone for ID..

    1. Given what we know about his sexual history…
      I find it impossible to believe that he’d be that discerning.
      Those trial balloons were floated. They had two major effects:
      Driving home that Billy was her main attachment to power, and without him, she’d be sunk.
      Inadvertently starting a bunch of rumors about Hillary being a lesbian.
      I recall being highly entertained.

      1. I can see him not asking if he thought it no longer mattered, that he was being ditched.
        As it happens, though …

        1. Because nothing says discretion quite like boffing interns and using the state highway patrol as an escort procurement service?
          From my view, he’s always believed himself to be untouchable. I don’t believe that getting away with perjury on the national stage caused him to reassess this.

  5. With this and the Sheldon Silver thing Hillary’s starting to look more and more like someone who’s going to running under a thunder cloud of potential trouble.

  6. they could post video of Hillary and Huma and it wouldn’t derail her. she’d get points for being brave and for being the first LGBTXYZ Prez.

    1. Hillary Clinton could be straight, and she’d make a video with Huma if she thought it’d help her chances of victory.

  7. I’m 100% certain there were pictures.

    But the real question is whether Billary already saw this coming years ago and had them destroyed and / or they’re in the hands of someone who is in Billary’s pocket and / that person is willing to be bought off.
