A lot of famous people knew Jeffrey Epstein, and the bill for that is coming due.
BILL GATES started up some kind of friendship or association with him in 2011 . . . and this was three years AFTER Epstein was convicted of "solicitation of prostitution" from a minor.
In a new interview on the"PBS News Hour", host Judy Woodruff asked him what he knew about Epstein when he started meeting with him. That made Bill pretty uncomfortable.
He said, quote, "You know, I had . . . dinners with him . . . I regret doing that… He had relationships with, uh, people he said, you know, would give to global health, which is an interest I have."
He admitted it was a MISTAKE, and said nothing came of those meetings, so he cut Epstein off.
Woodruff kept pressing, and Gates kept squirming. At one point she asked him if there's a lesson to be learned from the experience. He said, quote, "Well, he's dead, so, uh, in general you always have to be careful."
