Jeffrey Epstein's Address Book Includes Bill Clinton's Right-Hand Man

Doug Band is a key figure in the Shakespeareandrama of Clintonworld. He was Bill Clinton's right-hand man. And he's in Jeffrey Epstein's little black book.

Name found in Epstein’s black book and on Epstein’s private jet log.

A onetime White House intern who climbed his way to being Bill Clinton’s bag carrier, body man, fixer, and all-purpose gatekeeper, Band arranged for the former president to travel to Africa on Epstein’s 727 in 2002. Band would go on to help his boss found the Clinton Global Initiative in 2005, a choice platform from which he launched his own lucrative favor-trading corporate-advisory firm, Teneo. Throughout that time, he took a number of trips on Epstein’s plane and attended parties at his townhouse. Band resigned from his position at CGI in 2012; leaked emails later showed Band and Chelsea Clinton trading accusations of conflicts of interest in a war of influence over her parents

There's an added significance here because Epstein claimed that he helped create the Clinton Global Initiative.

Mr. Epstein was part of the original group that conceived the Clinton Global Initiative, which is described as a project 'bringing together a community of global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges,” read the July 2007 letter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of Florida. “Focuses of this initiative include poverty, climate change, global health, and religious and ethnic conflicts.”

Band had been accused of brokering dubious deals for Bill. And allegedly, for himself. 

If Epstein's influence reached deep into Clintonworld, Doug Band would have been the vehicle. Epstein wouldn't have bothered socializing with Clinton's fixer otherwise.

Or inviting him to his parties.

Blaine put on a private show for Epstein’s dinner guests in 2003, doing card tricks for the likes of Sergey Brin, Mort Zuckerman, and Bill Clinton aide Doug Band. The dinner was organized by Ghislaine Maxwell and included a group of young women who were introduced as Victoria’s Secret models.

The Epstein scandal is getting closer to the Clintons.
