Trevor Noah asks Hillary Clinton how she killed Jeffrey Epstein

Hillary Clinton has been asked point blank about her ‘involvement’ in the death of disgraced financier and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The former First Lady, Secretary of State and presidential hopeful was being interview on The Daily Show host Trevor Noah posed the tongue-in-cheek question.

“I have to ask you a question that has been plaguing me for a while: How did you kill Jeffrey Epstein?” Noah asked, drawing laughter from Ms Clinton, 71, and the studio audience.

“Because you’re not in power, but you have all the power. I really need to understand how you do what you do, because you seem to be behind everything nefarious, and yet you do not use it to become president,” he continued.

It’s a “vast right-wing conspiracy” that Ms Clinton and her husband, former US President Bill Clinton, were closely linked to Epstein.

“Honestly, what does it feel like being the bogeyman to the right?” the host asked.

“Well, it’s a constant surprise to me,” responded a chuckling Ms Clinton, who was appearing alongside her daughter, Chelsea, 39, to promote their new joint project, “The Book of Gutsy Women”.

“Because the things they say, and now, of course, it’s on steroids with being online, are so ridiculous, beyond any imagination that I could have,” she said.

“And yet they are so persistent in putting forth these crazy ideas and theories. Honestly, I don’t know what I ever did to get them so upset.”

A variety of conspiracy theories emerged after Epstein was found dead in his cell at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges.

Among them was that he had been murdered at the behest of the Clintons — as the hashtag #ClintonBodyCount trended.

A state medical examiner has concluded that Epstein committed suicide by hanging on Aug. 10.

Famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother to investigate the death, rekindled speculation about conspiracies when he said on “Fox & Friends” this week that the autopsy results were more consistent with homicide than suicide.

But New York City chief medical examiner Barbara Sampson quickly rejected Badens claims, stating she stands “firmly” behind her conclusion that Epstein’s death was a suicide.
