Jeffrey Epstein, Billionaire Long Accused of Molesting Minors, Is Charged

By Patricia Mazzei and William K. Rashbaum, The New York Times

07 July 19


Mr. Epstein, who was charged with sex trafficking, had avoided federal charges a decade ago in a widely criticized plea deal.

effrey E. Epstein, a billionaire New York financier long accused of molesting dozens of girls, was arrested on Saturday and charged with sex trafficking by federal prosecutors, an extraordinary turn of events in a long and sordid criminal case.

Two people with knowledge of the charges said on Saturday night that Mr. Epstein had been arrested in the New York area and was in federal custody.

He is expected to appear before a federal magistrate on Monday, more than a decade after he first gained notoriety with lurid accusations that he had paid dozens of girls for sexual massages in Florida.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

‘“He’s a lot of fun to be with,” the president said at the time. “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.’
Sounds promising like there’s more here than meets the eye.…

This may turn out to be an interesting case. Epstein reportedly an iron-clad informant agreement with Mueller. He was literally immune from prosecution anywhere until right now. The indictment is from the Southern District of NY -- a Mueller stronghold of federal prosecutors. They have indicted Epstein with a fairly minor charge of soliciting only one underage girl -- just the same change Epstein plead to in Miami after he made the deal with Mueller.

This is total speculation at this point but speculation is all we have. Mueller specializes in keeping a harem of sex offenders that he can use to testify against people he's trying to prosecute. George Nadar has already been used in this way against Trump but nothing worked. Now it may be that Mueller is behind bringing in Epstein who will spill the beans against Trump to the Southern District of NY.

If Epstein says Trump participated in underage sex orgies, Trump is finished. He'll be impeached and imprisoned. Epstein will go free.

This may be Mueller's final gambit. The indictment comes right before his scheduled testimony to congress. Look for a last minute leak from the indictment that Trump's name is in it. Then this will dominate the congressional hearings.

Just speculation but I don't think Mueller is finished. He has a long history of using sex-criminals to do his dirty work. He is close to the SDNY. We will see pretty soon.
