Trump wants to investigate Bill Clinton being on Epstein's island, but not himself (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump made waves a few days ago when he retweeted a controversial image suggesting he thought the Clinton's might possibly be behind Jeffrey Epstein's death in jail.
On Tuesday, Trump spoke with a reporter and said that he thinks Bill Clinton needs to be investigated, presumably with Justice Department resources.
Trump says that he "has no idea" if Clinton was in fact involved in the death, but thinks that Clinton being on Epstein's island is a real possibility.
"I know he's been on his plane 27 times, and he said he was on the plane four times. So, why did he say four times? The question you have to ask is, 'Did Bill Clinton go to the island?' That's the question. If you find that out, you're going to know a lot. That was not a good place, as I understand it,” Trump said. “But I was never there.”
When Trump was asked why he retweeted a conspiracy theory in the first place, he said that it was posted by a "highly respected conservative pundit."
Terrence K. William's bio listed him as an actor and comedian. While he may believe the things he's talking about, he's doing it in a highly entertaining and comical fashion that implies he shouldn't' be taken too seriously. Still, Trump did his best to spread the hysteria.

There is no evidence proving this longstanding conspiracy dubbed the “Clinton Body Count” which has tried desperately to link the Clinton's to a number of deaths. Snopes, which fact-checks for a living, has even debunked the false claims when they first surfaced.
As far as the claims that Clinton went to Epstein's island, those too are misleading since the flight logs show Clinton only flying on Epstein's jet. This has been acknowledged for a long time now. Clinton's team has also released a statement saying he has never been to the island and no evidence has even come out to suggest he ever was there.
Trump doesn't want to talk about conspiracy theories involving his connections with Epstein, though. That's very convenient.
