Democrat Financier’s Den of Sleaze: Bill Clinton’s Pedo-Pal Jeff Epstein Goes Down

The great scrub begins. Democrats are in full panic mode. Mainstream media reports are blowing up a comment Truhttps://twitter.com/muccitina/status/1067246414646796288mp made about Epstein almost 20 years ago while ignoring the fact that Trump banned Epstein from Mar-a-Lago because he “sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.”

Look what’s going on:

Financier Jeffrey Epstein Indicted on Federal Sex-Trafficking Charges

Federal prosecutors allege former asset manager ran an operation that allowed him to sexually exploit dozens of girls

Financier Jeffrey Epstein was indicted in New York on federal sex-trafficking charges stemming from an alleged scheme to exploit underage girls, another chapter in a lurid legal drama that has surrounded the politically connected money manager for years.

Federal prosecutors charged Mr. Epstein, 66 years old, with two counts related to sex trafficking of minors, which together carry a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison. He was arrested Saturday night at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey as he was returning from Paris on his private jet.

Mr. Epstein, wearing a short-sleeved navy jail uniform, pleaded not guilty before a federal magistrate judge Monday. He will be detained at a jail in lower Manhattan until a federal judge decides next week whether to grant him bail. Prosecutors have asked for him to stay in detention until trial, citing his “exorbitant” wealth and frequent international travel, a bid his lawyers objected to in court Monday.

Mr. Epstein’s legal team Monday laid out what they said would be the centerpiece of their defense: that Manhattan federal prosecutors were seeking an improper re-do of an investigation into Mr. Epstein more than a decade ago in Florida, which ended in a federal nonprosecution agreement.

“How in the world can that deal be undone?” said Reid Weingarten, a lawyer for Mr. Epstein. “To us, this indictment is essentially a do-over,”

Federal agents searched Mr. Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse after his arrest Saturday and found hundreds of nude photographs of young women, some of whom appeared to be underage, officials said. Some of the photographs were discovered in a locked safe alongside compact discs with handwritten labels like “Girl pics nude.”

In court Monday, Mr. Epstein’s lawyers said the images seized were likely not of underage victims.

Mr. Epstein is a former asset manager whose source of wealth has long been a mystery on Wall Street. After his arrest, he refused to answer any of the government’s questions about his income or assets, prosecutors said Monday; his lawyers said they needed time to pull that information together.

Mr. Epstein, who prosecutors said isn’t married and has no children, became known for his high-flying lifestyle and connections to prominent celebrities, academics, political figures and billionaires. He has been linked to former President Clinton, President Trump and Prince Andrew.

Monday’s indictment comes more than a decade after Mr. Epstein signed the nonprosecution agreement with federal prosecutors in Miami, following the Florida investigation.

That deal, which has been criticized by victims and some lawmakers as too lenient, guaranteed Mr. Epstein wouldn’t be federally charged and allowed him to plead guilty to two state felonies related to prostitution. He registered as a sex offender and served a 13-month sentence with work-release privileges that let him spend much of his time outside prison.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan said the 2007 deal is only binding in Miami’s federal district and doesn’t stop them from initiating their own case. The Manhattan indictment also covers new alleged conduct that occurred in New York, which wasn’t part of the Florida case, prosecutors said.

In court Monday, Mr. Epstein’s lawyers said Mr. Epstein had abided by the terms of the 2007 nonprosecution agreement, which had been approved by the Justice Department at a “very high level,” they said.

The 14-page charging document covers alleged activity in Mr. Epstein’s Manhattan and Palm Beach homes from 2002 to 2005. The indictment alleges Mr. Epstein orchestrated and financed a yearslong sex-trafficking operation in which he lured dozens of underage girls—some as young as 14 years old—to the homes in New York and Florida. He recruited them to perform massages in the nude that steadily progressed to masturbation and sex acts, prosecutors said.

Mr. Epstein allegedly paid them hundreds of dollars in cash afterward and provided them incentives in the form of cash payments to bring him new girls, according to the indictment. He intentionally sought out minors and knew many of them were under the age of 18, the government said, because the victims in some instances told him their ages.

In court Monday, Mr. Weingarten said the alleged conduct wasn’t sex trafficking, arguing Mr. Epstein didn’t use violence or deception. U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman interjected, saying if the women were under 18 years old, they were incapable of consent.

Mr. Epstein sat stone-faced throughout the proceedings, with hands folded on the table in front of him or resting against his chin.
