Bill Gates is nervous.
All he wanted was for folks to stop asking about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
And Bill Gates immediately regretted making this bizarre comment about “deceased” pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Even though Jeffrey Epstein is “deceased,” his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is facing charges relating to Epstein’s crimes.
And since Epstein was well-known to mingle with very powerful people for most of his life, many are getting nervous.
After he got arrested for child sex trafficking in 2008, most of his powerful friends cut him off.
Donald Trump even banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago club long before Esptein was arrested.
But not everyone cut ties with Esptein.
One such person is Bill Gates, whose relationship with Epstein began after he was fully-exposed as a pedophile.
Despite that, Bill Gates had multiple meetings with Epstein over the years, including flying on the private plane that Epstein was known to use for child sex trafficking.
Of course, Gates claims he was only trying to illicit funds for his global philanthropy efforts.
But Gates isn’t off the hook, especially following the recent news that his ex-wife divorced him over his friendship with Epstein.
And during a recent interview with PBS NewsHour, when Gates was asked about his relationship with Epstein, he tried to downplay their friendship.
But when host Judy Woodruff asked him, “do you draw any lessons from the mistakes you made with Jeffrey Epstein?” Gates gave a bizarre answer.
Gates responded, “Well, he’s dead. So in general, you always have to be careful.”
“Well, he’s dead. In general, you always have to be careful.”

Gates didn’t elaborate any further and the interviewer moved on to the next topic without asking any followup questions.
But it was clear that the question made Gates extremely uncomfortable.
And more and more Americans are now speculating whether or not Gates was complicit in the crimes of Epstein.
After all, Jeffrey Epstein had a reputation of pursuing relationships with wealthy, powerful figures in order to enrich himself and avoid being punished for his crimes.
When he was arrested in 2008, Epstein’s connections helped him receive a much-reduced sentence, resulting in him serving very little time in prison.
But even though Epstein is “deceased,” his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell is facing charges relating to Epstein’s crimes.
And since Epstein was well-known to be close friends with Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, many are wondering if other powerful people will be implicated in Epstein’s crimes.
