Bill Clinton grins with pleasure as he enjoys an intimate neck massage with a young Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The troubling pictures are an ill-timed reminder of Clinton’s links to Epstein as the former President, 72, prepares to endorse Joe Biden tonight at the Democratic Convention.
Clinton traveled numerous times on the dead pedophile’s private Jet, the Lolita Express, socialized with his alleged Madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, and faced a slew of sexual misconduct accusations himself during his years in public life.
Yet the 42nd President of the United States is still revered in progressive circles despite the renewed focus on Epstein’s crimes and the predatory behavior of rich, powerful men laid bare by the #MeToo movement.
In the photos, Clinton sits comfortably and laughs as Chauntae Davies, then a 22-year-old massage therapist who acted as Epstein’s personal masseuse rubs her hands into his shoulders to get out the kinks in his neck.
Clinton, then 56, had complained of having a stiff neck after falling asleep on Epstein’s infamous private jet, nicknamed The Lolita Express, while on a humanitarian trip with the pedophile to Africa in September of 2002.
Maxwell, who is now in prison on sex trafficking charges, repeatedly encouraged Davies to give Clinton a massage while the group was refueling at a small airport in Portugal after flying in from New York.
After Maxwell’s insistence, Clinton asked the twenty-something: ‘Would you mind giving it a crack?’
The images show Clinton dressed in a yellow button-down shirt and beige slacks with his hands resting on his lap, as he leaned back while Davies knelt on a chair behind him for a better angle.
In a second image, Clinton seems to be smiling in relief as a sweatpants-clad Davies massages him.
Davies, who has claimed she was raped by Epstein several times after being recruited by Maxwell, said Clinton was a ‘complete gentleman’ on the trip.
She previously said she was invited to travel to Africa one week before the departure, and when she arrived to the airfield, she was instructed to wear a uniform to look professional.
Davies acted as an air stewardess on the flight and described being shocked when Clinton boarded the plane, saying he was ‘charming and sweet’.
Davies, now in her early 40s, said of the massage pictures: ‘Although the image looks bizarre, President Clinton was a perfect gentleman during the trip and I saw absolutely no foul play involving him.’
She explained the massage happened when ‘we had a stop-over for the jet to refuel and while we were in the terminal the ex-President was complaining of stiffness from falling asleep in his chair.
‘Ghislaine chimed in to be funny and said that I could give him a massage.
‘Everyone had a little chuckle but Ghislaine in her prim British accent insisted and said I was good. The President then asked me ”would you mind giving it a crack”.
‘He turned his back to me and I reached up and I started to rub out the kink in our former President’s neck and shoulder.’
The massage therapist then revealed her embarrassment after innocently telling Clinton: ‘I’ve got a bad angle, would you mind getting on your knees?’
Describing the incident she said: ‘I’m not at all sure what came over me.
In an excerpt from her soon-to-be-released memoir, Davies added: ‘I was groggy and have also always been the queen of putting my foot in my mouth.’
‘For a moment the room fell silent. I couldn’t believe I’d said that. The words just shot out before I realized what I was saying or who I said it to.
‘Then, although his face had turned the color of fire, he laughed. The whole room was laughing too. And, being the good sport he was, he sat down so I could get a better angle.’
Epstein and Maxwell, along with other celebrities, accompanied Clinton on the trip to Africa in September 2002. It was part of a project for Clinton’s foundation to raise awareness about poverty and the AIDS crisis in the continent.
Clinton and Ghislaine were pictured posing together as they boarded Epstein’s plane.
Other pictures show the politician traveling on the infamous jet while playing cards with a cigar in his mouth.
The star-studded group – which included actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker – visited the countries of Ghana, Nigeria, Rwanda, Mozambique and South Africa during the five-day humanitarian trip.
Epstein was previously accused of using his private plane to transport underage girls to his various luxury homes in New York, Palm Beach, New Mexico and even Paris. American dignitaries and rich and powerful figures also traveled on the jet.
Clinton’s office previously issued a statement in regards to his travels on the plane and denied knowing anything about the financier’s crimes.
His team said he had only taken four trips with him in 2002 and 2003 – although flight logs showed he had taken a total of at least 26 individual flights in the course of those years.
‘President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has previously been charged in New York,’ a statement read.
‘In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the Clinton Foundation.
‘Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg or every trip.’
Davies claims she was sexually abused by Epstein for several years and finally escaped his clutches in 2005.
