The new indictment for well-connected billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has been made public. It charges Epstein with sex trafficking underage girls, cites three victims, and three employees, who scheduled his meetings with the victims, and describes the methods of Epstein’s abuse. The offenses allegedly occurred between 2002-2005 at his properties in Manhattan, NY and Palm Beach, Florida.
Federal officials are seeking forfeiture of Epstein’s Manhattan property, where they discovered photos of nude girls during a recent search.
Epstein’s attorney, Reid Weingarten, made the following arguments on his client’s behalf today in court:
“We do know we’re dealing with ancient conduct,”
These crimes committed between 2002 and 2005 fall within the statute of limitations.
“That should chill the blood of every defense attorney who negotiates a deal with the United States,”
Theatrical reference to the potential voiding of a Florida non-prosecution plea agreement made 12 years ago; it has recently been deemed illegal. That excessively lenient deal has been called a slap on the wrist, rather than a life sentence which Epstein might have received if he was anyone else.
The Florida plea deal included the sealing of documents about sexual assaults, as well as Epstein’s practice of ordering the girls to service his friends and associates, dozens of girls, some as young as 12.
A court ruling says the plea deal agreement is illegal because the victims were never notified of the arrangement made between with then Florida State Attorney Alexander Acosta and Epstein’s attorney.
More words from Epstein’s attorney, Reid Weingarten:
“An agreement that was approved all the way up in Main Justice, and it sure seemed like a global solution involved at the time, including my client.”
“To us, this indictment is essentially a do-over. Two of the alleged victims in this indictment are from Florida,”
“It is fair to say that a significant segment of the law enforcement community in Florida thought that what we had was simple prostitution,”
Judge: “And of the victims being under 18, isn’t that rape?”
“Well, that could be statutory rape.”
Realizing he just admitted his client’s behavior was rape, he clarified:
“There’s no statutory rape because” he claims “there was no penetration.”
He then goes on to argue that Epstein is not a flight risk.
To be clear, the correct answer to the judge’s question about victims under the age of 18- it is rape.
Any sex with a child is rape. Age determines when a person can consent or not consent, and a child can never consent to have sex. Nonconsensual sex is rape.
Rape and prostitution are not the same.
Sexual abuse of a child in exchange for money is not “child prostitution,” it is sex trafficking.
Let’s consider why the current administration’s Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, who previously worked for the state of Florida and concocted a plea deal that let sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein avoid federal court, and an appropriate stay in a proper prison. Why would Alex Accosta break the law by not informing victims of the deal, and risk his career for Jeffrey Epstein?
Either he was well paid, or he has been blackmailed.
‘Knowledge is king’ －Jeffrey Epstein
A 2006 court filing says a police search of Epstein’s mansion found hidden cameras every room. He reportedly taped every encounter, saving tapes to use as blackmail and ensure loyalty. Epstein was not the only one who abused these girls.
For many influential businessmen, politicians, and attorneys, keeping Epstein happy is a matter of self-preservation, necessary to conceal their crimes.
Two thousand pages of sealed documents detailing Epstein’s crimes, and evidence substantiating it, have been ordered unsealed and viewed by the public.
It might be thought odd that Donny Two-Scoops would choose Acosta for the position of Secretary of labor— until you find out the Secretary of Labor oversees US Human Trafficking laws.
Twitler is now trying to separate himself from Epstein. He’ll soon deny he was a friend of his who regularly attended his parties in the 1980s.
Were the infamous “pee tapes” mentioned in the Steele dossier actually ”pedophile” tapes? Hair Führer has been accused of rape by a 13-year-old. The victim said the abuse occurred at one of Epstein’s properties. Epstein has ties to the Russian mob. He may have made the infamous ”P” tape.
Scrolling through old stories about Epstein, I found the following, written in 2011. It’s worth mentioning for several reasons. It names several business associates and friends, (people who were said to be at Epstein’s sex parties with young girls), and some not mentioned- it makes you wonder.
Also interesting is that the story was written in 2011 and never mentions Epstein’s 2008 jail time. One more curious item is this quote:
”One reporter, in fact, received three threats from Epstein while preparing a piece. They were delivered in a jocular tone, but the message was clear: There will be trouble for your family if I don’t like the article.” Vicky Ward, Vanity Fair, 2011
Epstein’s bail hearing adjourned to resume on Thursday. In the meantime, I hope he likes his roommates.
