This is quite an in-depth article on what happened with the investigation and prosecution of Jeffrey Epstein. It's a tale of what money and influence can buy you, a grave injustice to what is likely over 100 abused girls, and involves the rich and famous from English princes to U.S. presidents to Hollywood elites.

The prosecutor who brokered the deal squashing a federal probe into an international sex-trafficking ring? Alexander Acosta, Trump’s Secretary of Labor — whose department assists law enforcement partners in the identification of trafficking victims.

Now, Epstein is due back in court soon for a civil lawsuit and his victims will be able to testify like they hadn't before. This may very well expose many famous people's illegal activities which is fine by me. Don't care what political party you're affiliated with, what religion you belong to, or what charities you run, if you rape underage girls, you deserve prison.

How a future Trump Cabinet member gave a serial sex abuser the deal of a lifetime
BY JULIE K. BROWN
NOV. 28, 2018

On a muggy October morning in 2007, Miami’s top federal prosecutor, Alexander Acosta, had a breakfast appointment with a former colleague, Washington, D.C., attorney Jay Lefkowitz.

It was an unusual meeting for the then-38-year-old prosecutor, a rising Republican star who had served in several White House posts before being named U.S. attorney in Miami by President George W. Bush.

His client, Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, 54, was accused of assembling a large, cult-like network of underage girls — with the help of young female recruiters — to coerce into having sex acts behind the walls of his opulent waterfront mansion as often as three times a day, the Town of Palm Beach police found.

The eccentric hedge fund manager, whose friends included former President Bill Clinton, Donald Trump and Prince Andrew, was also suspected of trafficking minor girls, often from overseas, for sex parties at his other homes in Manhattan, New Mexico and the Caribbean, FBI and court records show.

Facing a 53-page federal indictment, Epstein could have ended up in federal prison for the rest of his life.

But on the morning of the breakfast meeting, a deal was struck — an extraordinary plea agreement that would conceal the full extent of Epstein’s crimes and the number of people involved.

Not only would Epstein serve just 13 months in the county jail, but the deal — called a non-prosecution agreement — essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who took part in Epstein’s sex crimes, according to a Miami Herald examination of thousands of emails, court documents and FBI records.

The pact required Epstein to plead guilty to two prostitution charges in state court. Epstein and four of his accomplices named in the agreement received immunity from all federal criminal charges. But even more unusual, the deal included wording that granted immunity to “any potential co-conspirators’’ who were also involved in Epstein’s crimes. These accomplices or participants were not identified in the agreement, leaving it open to interpretation whether it possibly referred to other influential people who were having sex with underage girls at Epstein’s various homes or on his plane.

As part of the arrangement, Acosta agreed, despite a federal law to the contrary, that the deal would be kept from the victims.


Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery
He's pals with a passel of Nobel Prize–winning scientists, CEOs like Leslie Wexner of the Limited, socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, even Donald Trump. But it wasn't until he flew Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker to Africa on his private Boeing 727 that the world began to wonder who he is.
By Landon Thomas Jr., New York Magazine
2002

He comes with cash to burn, a fleet of airplanes, and a keen eye for the ladies -- to say nothing of a relentless brain that challenges Nobel Prize–winning scientists across the country -- and for financial markets around the world. Ever since the Post's "Page Six" ran an item about the president's late-September visit to Africa with Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker -- on his new benefactor's customized Boeing 727 -- the question of the day has been: Who in the world is Jeffrey Epstein?

It's a life full of question marks. Epstein is said to run $15 billion for wealthy clients, yet aside from Limited founder Leslie Wexner, his client list is a closely held secret.

Epstein likes to tell people that he's a loner, a man who's never touched alcohol or drugs, and one whose nightlife is far from energetic. And yet if you talk to Donald Trump, a different Epstein emerges. "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

But beautiful women are only a part of it. Because here's the thing about Epstein: As some collect butterflies, he collects beautiful minds. "I invest in people -- be it politics or science. It's what I do," he has said to friends. And his latest prize addition is the former president. In his eyes, Clinton as a species represents the highest evolutionary form of the political animal. As he put it to a friend upon his return from Africa, "If you were a boxer at the downtown gymnasium at 14th Street and Mike Tyson walked in, your face would have the same look as these foreign leaders had when Clinton entered the room. He is the world's greatest politician."

Call me cynical. But I I think this deal was made to protect the rich and powerful from both parties. Hopefully the civil trial will reveal the names of these predators.

Jeffrey Epstein, serial sex abuser, settles one case, apologizes. Next up: federal court
BY JULIE K. BROWN, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

A trial that could have allowed the victims of serial molester Jeffrey Epstein to finally tell their stories from a witness stand was aborted Tuesday when it was announced in court that the case had been settled.

It ended with an apology — not to the dozens of women who were sexually abused by Epstein as underage girls, but to the lawyer who represented them.

The lawyer who took Epstein to court, Bradley Edwards, said he remains determined to give the women, now in their late 20s and early 30s, their day in court.

That opportunity could come in separate litigation that seeks to undo a controversial non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated in secret 10 years ago between the Palm Beach multimillionaire’s lawyers and the U.S. attorney for South Florida, Alex Acosta.

SC,
Your disdain for President Trump is well documented. You mentioned that Acosta is the Secretary of Labor in the Trump administration. Pray tell, what does his position as Secretary of Labor, that have to do with Epstein?
I trust that you will comment on Harvey Weinstein's role as a fund raiser and facilitator, (excuse me, Epstein was the facilitator for Bill Clinton on the bimbo express,) when Weinstein skates from the charges of rape against him.
"Bill Clinton identified in lawsuit against his former friend and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had 'regular' orgies at his Caribbean compound that the former president visited multiple times
The former president was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, a financier who was arrested in 2008 for soliciting underage prostitutes
A new lawsuit has revealed how Clinton took multiple trips to Epstein's private island where he 'kept young women as sex slaves'
Clinton was also apparently friends with a woman who collected naked pictures of underage girls for Epstein to choose from
He hasn't cut ties with that woman, however, and invited her to Chelsea's wedding
Comes as friends now fear that if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, all of their family's old scandals will be brought to the forefront
Epstein has a host of famous friends including Prince Andrew who stayed at his New York mansion AFTER his arrest

"In total, Weinstein contributions made directly to Clinton and associated non-party political entities is $69,990.45. Note that this does not include donations to other political entities that may have financially supported Clinton.

Between 1999 and 2000, Weinstein donated approximately $1 million to Democratic candidates and $517,882 to Democratic Party organizations, including the Democratic National Committee and other state-level entities.

Through a process called “bundling”—raising funds on behalf of a candidate from friends, family, and associates—Weinstein raised $1,422,683 for federal candidates and political entities between 1990 and last year."

I did comment ramage:
"This may very well expose many famous people's illegal activities which is fine by me. Don't care what political party you're affiliated with, what religion you belong to, or what charities you run, if you rape underage girls, you deserve prison."

I know very well who has been associated with Epstein - Clinton, Prince Andrew, Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Trump - they ALL should be held accountable for any laws they broke.

Acosta is the attorney who arranged the plea deal, over the investigating police detectives' protests, that allowed Epstein to serve minimal time for human trafficking and rape (over 80 girls and he served 13 months of an only 18 month sentence??), and astonishingly:
"Part of the deal that Acosta made offer immunity from federal prosecution in conjunction with these crimes to Epstein and also to any of his potential co-conspirators." - Rachel Maddow

What kind of prosecuting state attorney makes a deal that prevents further prosecution from higher courts (which may be illegal and is still pending challenge in court) and covers co-conspirators like Weinstein and Clinton as well? One who's displayed a willful lack of justice in not fulfilling his duties as a U.S. Attorney should not be serving as Secretary of Labor, especially as a Secretary under one of the men who is potentially a conspirator (as evidenced by a previously filed, and subsequently dropped lawsuit due to death threats, that named Trump and Epstein as having raped a victim who was 13 at the time).

Federal court moves to unseal documents in Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal
BY JULIE K. BROWN
MARCH 11, 2019

A federal court of appeals in New York on Monday took the first step in unsealing documents that could reveal evidence of an international sex trafficking operation allegedly run by multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his former partner, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

The three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit gave the parties until March 19 to establish good cause as to why they should remain sealed and, failing to do so, the summary judgment and supporting documents will be made public. The court reserved a ruling on the balance of the documents in the civil case, including discovery materials.

“We’re grateful that the court ruled the summary judgment papers are open and they are moving to expedite having them unsealed,’’ said Sanford Bohrer, the attorney representing the Miami Herald, which filed the motion last year to have the entire case file opened. The Herald’s appeal is supported by 32 other media companies, including the New York Times and Washington Post.

Here's hoping that all the guilty fry! I doubt it will come to that since Epstein has so many friends in high places. Pedophiles are the scum of the earth.

I don’t even know what he said but comments are just words. I don’t really care because he’s a news celebrity and I don’t trust any of them.
