Editors on Wikipedia seem to be attempting to cover up Democratic party ties to Jeffrey Epstein, who was recently charged with federal sex trafficking crimes involving minors.
The infamous billionaire’s ties to Clinton and other dem notables have long been publicly noted and were part of Epstein’s Wikipedia article, but they mysteriously disappeared around the time of the charge. Meanwhile the reference connecting Epstein to President Trump remains unmolested.
Writing for Red State, Brandon Morse noted that members of the public are often quick to sanitize sources of information to preserve the reputations of figures they support.
“As people in our society will do, when they want to learn who somebody is they’ll hit up America’s number one source of information, Wikipedia. The site is open sourced, meaning anyone can come in and make changes to a page. This can be used to update references, correct information, or in some cases, rewrite history for malicious reasons,” Morse wrote. “You can bet your Britannica that some were only too happy to rewrite Epstein’s history to make it seem like he was more of a figure among Republicans than Democrats.”
Prior to Epstein’s arrest on July 7th, his Wikipedia entry noted the ties to actor Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton. One disappeared sentence read: “Epstein flew Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker to Africa in his private jet. Flight records show Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane 26 times.”
Bill Clinton denies the accusation and claims that he only flew on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” 4 times. His denial flies in the face of flight log records obtained by Fox News.
The reference to the connection to President Trump was left on the Wikipedia article.
Upon checking the Wikipedia page’s edit history, one will note that the page was edited at some point between 8:30 and 10:30am on July 7th to remove the connections to Clinton and Spacey.
“It’s unclear who is editing the page, but it should be noted that anyone can do so with the right login,” writes Morse. “Some pages on Wikipedia are locked and unable to be altered by the public, sometimes for this very reason. However, if the page suddenly does become locked with the information subtracted from Epstein’s page, we’ll know that it wasn’t just randoms on the Internet[…].”
