Bill Clinton’s advisor linked to Jeffrey Epstein has died mysteriously. Mark Middleton’s life in recent years has been a far cry from the authority he possessed in the 1990s.
Bill Clinton’s former special advisor, who helped solidify his bond with Jeffrey Epstein, has passed away at the age of 59, making him the former President’s latest colleague to pass away early.
Mark Middleton died on Saturday, according to his family, who did not identify the cause of death in a statement, reports Daily Mail.
The father of two resided in Little Rock, Arkansas, and both local police authorities and the county coroner stated that they were not going to investigate and did not respond to the death.
Middleton had managed an air conditioning company in Little Rock for decades, but in the 1990s he was a special advisor to Clinton and the finance director for his Presidential campaign.

During that period, Middleton welcomed Epstein to the Clinton White House seven times out of at least 17 visits by the late pedophile.
Middleton also travelled on Epstein’s jet and seems to have served as a go-between for the two men.
Media had previously reported on Epstein’s entrée to the Clinton White House, which provided him with access to a sphere of influence that he would nurture for the rest of his life and use to dazzle and frighten the underage girls he assaulted.
Middleton’s death was revealed in a now-deleted Facebook post for the family’s air conditioning business, Middleton Heat & Air.
Per an article in Arkansas Business, the firm was among the state’s biggest HVAC suppliers.
The post said: ‘The Middleton Family is saddened to share that Mark Middleton passed away this weekend.
‘The Middleton family has lost an inspiring and dedicated leader, as well as a son, brother, husband, and father. Mark leaves behind a company that he helped build from the ground up alongside his family and was proud to run for the last 25 years.
‘No words can express our sadness over this loss or our gratitude for your support and prayers during this time.’
Middleton was formerly the managing director of the investment business MidCorp Capital and served for a number of charitable organizations.
The sole indication to a potential cause came from a request in Middleton’s obituary that instead of flowers, well-wishers donate to a counseling and treatment program affiliated with the New Life Church in Arkansas.
The death had not been investigated, according to a spokesperson for the Little Rock Police Department.
Middleton’s life in recent years has been a far cry from the authority he possessed in the 1990s.
According to White House visitor logs obtained by the media, he appears as the approving authority on seven of Epstein’s White House visits, the majority of which were to the West Wing.
Middleton served as a special assistant to the President as well as the chief of staff, Thomas ‘Mack’ McLarty.
Middleton resigned from the White House in February 1995 after being suspected of posing as an international dealmaker, exactly the type of person who would appeal to Epstein.
Middleton was forbidden from the executive residence without senior authority after a White House probe discovered that he had exploited his privilege to impress business clients.
Middleton refuted the allegations.
According to a source, some of Middleton’s discussions with Epstein took place in room 176 of the old Executive Office Building, not the White House.
According to the insider, Middleton requested a conference space in the West Wing near the White House mess so that he could dazzle his guests with his proximity to the Oval Office.
The source said: ‘Mark was trying to make himself look bigger than he was. He was trying to make himself out like he had more power than he really did in the White House.
‘Mark knew that Epstein was managing the money of Les Wexner,’ referring to the billionaire founder of L Brands and Victoria’s Secret.
The source went on: ‘The year 1994 there were midterm elections, Clinton needed money and Mark thought he could get some of Wexner’s money.
‘Mark wanted to set himself up as the guy who could bring in those kinds of big donors’, the source said.
Following a trip to the White House in May 1994, Epstein traveled from Washington to Palm Beach, Florida, with Middleton on board.
The two travelled from Palm Beach to Grand Bahama International Airport in the Bahamas the next day.
They returned to Palm Beach the next day.
Several of Clinton’s erstwhile colleagues have perished in mysterious conditions throughout the years, giving rise to the Clinton Body Count conspiracy theory.
They comprise former deputy White House counsel Vince Foster, whose death in 1993 was deemed a suicide but inspired a flood of conspiracy theories regarding the Clintons’ participation.
After Epstein committed suicide while awaiting prosecution in 2019, Donald Trump reposted conspiracy theories involving Clinton.
Others whose deaths have been erroneously connected to the Clintons include Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer murdered in 2016, and Christopher Sign, the reporter who broke the story of a conference between Clinton and then-attorney general Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of Phoenix International Airport. In 2021, Sign was discovered deceased in his house.
C. Victor Raiser, Bill Clinton’s National Finance Co-chairman, died in a plane crash with his son in 1992; Mary Mohane, a White House intern who was shot in a Starbucks in 1997; and Jim McDougal, a financial partner of the Clintons who died from a heart attack while being in prison in 1998, are all listed on the Wikipedia page for Clinton Body Count.
It also includes Edward Willey, whose wife Kathleen has accused Clinton of sexual abuse. His death was determined to be a suicide.
In 1993, as he was leaving a Mexican restaurant, Clinton’s head of security, Jerry Parks, was shot and killed.
