Last month, the FBI released heavily redacted memos on the Epstein probe, and one offered a hint as to the reason for his lenient treatment:

“Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon.”  thedailybeast.com/how-did-trump-…
It’s unclear what dirt he might have given the feds. Epstein was once a limited partner at Bear Stearns and abruptly quit in 1981. Around the time of his plea deal, the investment bank’s role in the subprime mortgage crisis could have been of great interest to the feds
Trump was among the child molestor's admirers. “I’ve known Jeff for 15yrs. Terrific guy,”

“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.”
Jeffery’s “social life,” according to police and a score of lawsuits, involved a pedophile ring of dozens of underage girls, whom he groomed then loaned out to powerful friends. But aside from a minor conviction in Fl—for which he served just 13 mos—Epstein is unscathed.
New York authorities have never charged him with any crime, and he still drops into his Upper East Side mansion, where women have been photographed coming and going, according to tabloid reports. His sex offender registration lists his primary address as St. Thomas.
Epstein was unmasked in March 2005, when the stepmom of one 14yo victim called police, said a wealthy man molested her child. She got a call from a schoolmate’s mom, who overheard her own daughter say “how [the victim] had met with a 45yo man & had sex w him & was paid for it,”
Palm Beach detectives would soon unearth 5 girls who claimed Epstein lured them into a ring of sexual abuse. By the time Epstein inked his plea agreement, the feds had identified 40 victims.
Police said Epstein told his employees & other young women to recruit young girls—many underprivileged or from broken homes—for massages.

One recruiter told police Epstein said,
“The younger, the better.”

Some as young as 13...

"Maria" was 12. Right @realDonaldTrump ?
Epstein eventually walked free with a slap on the wrist, even after Florida cops took their case from state prosecutors to the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office.
Epstein pleaded guilty to 2 state charges: ▪solicitation of prostitution
▪procurement of minors for prostitution.

In an unusually sweet deal w fed prosecutors
▪served 13 of 18-mo sent in private wing of a Palm Beach cty jail
▪Left 6d/wk, 16h/day, for “work release"
The litigation from victims incl Virginia Roberts +other Jane Does untangled more sinister layers of Epstein’s operation—
Like sex crimes that occurred in NY but went unprosecuted

In civil cases, Epstein pleaded the Fifth when asked about his sexual activity with underage girls
Epstein's name popped up during the 2016 election, when "Katie Johnson" filed a lawsuit against Trump, claiming he raped her at one of Epstein’s parties when she was just 13 years old. She dropped the suit months later...

[Right around the same time Stormy was paid off.]
Epstein came up again during Trump labor secretary nominee Alexander Acosta’s Senate confirmation hearing. Acosta was the U.S. Attorney for SDFL who oversaw Epstein's plea deal.
Epstein’s high-powered legal team, which included Harvard law professor Alan DERSHOWITZ, now working for Weinstein, gave prosecutors dossiers on alleged victims in an effort to discredit them.

Epstein’s also hired PI's to follow witnesses, including one victim’s father, LE said.
Trump was visibly rattled (note look on face ) when, at a rally on Wednesday, a protester hoisted an old photo of him with his friend, the accused sex fiend. The text on the demonstrator’s poster simply asked: Who is Jeffrey Epstein?

What an odd reaction...
Now two cases could propel Epstein back into the spotlight—including one where Roberts, who claimed Epstein kept her as his “sex slave,” is expected to testify against him in a Florida trial.
Last year, a woman named Sarah Ransome (Jane Doe 43) sued Epstein in Manhattan federal court, claiming he trafficked her for sex from October 2006 through April 2007—all while his attorneys were waging war against the federal charges in Florida.
Ransome’s complaint was filed in the same district where Weinstein & his co's face a pair of class-action lawsuits accusing him &his associates of running a mafia-like op that perpetuated and covered up his sexual harassment, assault & rape of women seeking work opportunities.
During Epstein’s plea negotiations, he departed Palm Beach for New York and the Virgin Islands “in order to convey an image to prosecutors that he and his co-conspirators had stopped committing sex crimes,” her lawsuit states.
According to Ransome, Epstein didn’t quit his sex-abuse operation. Instead, he allegedly transported young women from other U.S. cities and abroad to his residences in New York and the Virgin Islands, the complaint says.
According to the fine print of his once-confidential plea deal, which the FBI made public recently, Epstein could have been charged with federal offenses involving sex acts with minors. If convicted of such crimes, he could have spent decades or even life behind bars.
Instead, he’s continued flitting between the Virgin Islands and NYC, where tabloid shutterbugs have captured him strolling the Upper East Side with different women. One New York Post report said Epstein houses Russian models at his 51,000-square-foot palace on East 71st Street.
Allegations of Jeffrey Epstein exploiting young women in New York were surfacing well before Sarah Ransome’s case.
Maximilia Cordero claimed she was 16 when Epstein sexually abused her in 2000/said hed help her modeling career for sexual favors.

7y later, when she sued, her attorney (& bf) said she was unable to consent bc she was underage & had a mental illness.
Cordero's suit: dismissed.

Ruling: Cordero was not insane during her encounters with Epstein and thus she could not circumvent the statute of limitations. 

The only med testimony was from an Epstein-hired psychiatrist.
15-year-old Virginia Roberts (JaneDoe102) was working a summer job at Mar-a-Lago when Ghislaine Maxwell recruited her for Epstein.

She invited Roberts, now Giuffre, to make good money by learning massage therapy, according to a now-settled lawsuit Giuffre filed.
Giuffre’s father, a maintenance manager at Trump's Maralago, was glad an older woman was offering his daughter this opportunity and dropped her off at Epstein’s mansion. Like the others, Giuffre claims she was sexually abused during the massage session.
Giuffre, who worked at Maralago along with her father, has claimed she spent four years as Epstein’s sex slave and was pimped out to the wealth manager’s rich and powerful friends.
Now, 20 years after she met Epstein, Giuffre may testify against him. The financier is facing a malicious prosecution lawsuit in Florida from Bradley Edwards, an attorney who says Epstein sued him in 2009 as punishment for representing the victims.
Edwards declined to comment.

But when asked why cops never busted Epstein in NY, he said,

“NY authorities are familiar with the allegations that have been made by Virginia against Epstein & have shown no interest in investigating or *prosecuting him or anyone else in NY*”
Two weeks after meeting Epstein, Giuffre says she was flown to New York for “training” at his mansion.

“It was basically every day and was like going to school. I also had to have sex with Epstein many times,” Giuffre said in a 2015 affidavit.
Giuffre allegedly lived as Epstein’s teenage slave from 1999 through 2002, including at his home in New York.

“In fact, my only purpose for Epstein, Maxwell and their friends was to be used for sex,” she said.

Those friends allegedly included Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew.
Giuffre claimed she was subjected to daily sexual abuse, including by Maxwell, whom she later sued for defamation in Manhattan federal court in 2015. The case settled in 2017 preventing Epstein from taking the stand in what was to be an explosive trial. pagesix.com/2017/05/24/wom…
Now a married mother of three, Giuffre said she was forced to sleep with Dershowitz for the first time in Epstein’s New York mansion, when she was 16 years old. She claimed she also had sex with Prince Andrew in New York when she was 17.
Giuffre said Jean Luc Brunel, a modeling mogul now suing Epstein for damaging his rep/business, had sex with her multiple times when she was 16 to 19 years old in NY, and that Brunel *supplied Epstein with European minors who aspired to walk the runway.* thedailybeast.com/model-king-sue…
“Jeffrey Epstein has told me that he has slept with over 1,000 of Brunel’s girls, and everything that I have seen confirms this claim,” Giuffrein's affidavit

She witnessed orgies w children in different cities & Maxwell/Epstein’s NY-based assistant Sarah Kellen participated.
Giuffre was allegedly trafficked to
▪powerful biz execs
▪acquaintances of Epstein

"Epstein required me to describe the sexual events I had w these men presumably so that he could *potentially blackmail them*”

“I am still very fearful of these men today.”
“Bc of how often Epstein & others were having sex w young girls, & how much it was a centerpiece of their lives, I doubt they have just stopped,”
-Giuffre in affidavit

“It also seems to me that, ...they believed that they were above the law—too powerful to be prosecuted.”
Jack Scarola, an attorney for Edwards (Giuffre), expects trial in Palm Beach to start no later than Aug & likely to set date early July.

It will be the first time Epstein—if he chooses to appear—will be forced to “sit there & be confronted w the truth about what he has done,”
“Virginia is ready, willing, able and enthusiastic about the opportunity that she will have to confront Jeffrey Epstein face to face,” Scarola added

“There are other victims who are absolutely ready and willing to testify.”
Included on the witness list:
▪Prince Andrew
▪President Clinton
▪President Trump
▪David Copperfield
▪Leslie Wexner, the billionaire founder of the company that owns Victoria’s Secret and Epstein’s only known financial client.
The proceeding may be in Florida, but Epstein’s lifestyle and activities in all of his locations, including New York, are likely to come up.
“He has thus far, for reasons that remain unexplained, been able to evade criminal responsibility...” Scarola said. “It may very well be that the focus of public attn through this civil suit...will create... pressure necessary to see he is appropriately criminally prosecuted.”
If the recently released FBI memos on Epstein are any indication, the feds have known about Giuffre’s claims for years.

Among the press clippings included in the file were a Daily Mail story from March 2011, when Giuffre revealed her identity.
2015 affidavit
Soon after Giuffre went public, 2 FBI agents met her in AU, where she was living

“They seemed to be very professional and hard working. I thought to myself, ‘Wow, these people will do the right thing against the bad guys and protect me,’” Giuffre said
In a second affidavit filed months later,

Giuffre said the agents “seemed like they were being blocked from doing what they wanted to do—which I thought was to arrest Epstein and his powerful friends for all their illegal sex crimes.”
Giuffre hoped Epstein would be prosecuted. “But when nothing came of it, I got very upset"

“I wanted to do something to stop Epstein & other ppl he associates w from sexually abusing girls.”

“Law enforcement had taken my detailed statements, but nothing seemed to be happening.”
Giuffre said she contacted the FBI in April 2014, months after she moved back to the US

"But, it seemed like the hands of [assistant U.S. Attorney Marie] Villafaña and the FBI were always tied by someone else with more authority,” she said.
“I have never been able to figure out who was (and still is) stopping a prosecution,” Giuffre wrote in the affidavit.

I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003 h/t @ninaandtito thebea.st/1yyllUy?source… via @thedailybeast

I personally witnessed...where my boss Mr. Epstein attempted to rape and sodomize the Plaintiff. I personally witnessed Mr. Epstein sexually and physically abuse other minor females even younger than her.
"I personally witnessed Mr. Trump physically threaten the life and well-being of the Plaintiff if she ever revealed any details of the physical and sexual abuse suffered by her at the hands of Mr. Trump."

"I personally witnessed...Trump telling the Plaintiff she shouldn't ever say anything if she didn't want to disappear like the 12yo female Maria, & that he was capable of having her whole family killed."
Thank you @MacFinn44

Here's a nice photo of Jeffrey Epstein's N212JE and Donald Trump's N757AF side by side in West Palm Beach airport on 1/12/2013
During the 4y she claimed to have been a fixture in Epstein’s hedonistic world, she claimed she saw Epstein & close associates abuse women from across the world, including three French 12-year-olds who she alleged were sent to him as a birthday present. theguardian.com/world/2015/jan…
One elliptical reference alleged that Epstein “required” her to be sexually exploited by “politicians, academicians, businessmen”. These men were described in the doc as Epstein’s “adult male peers, including royalty”. theguardian.com/world/2015/jan…
“Epstein’s purposes in ‘lending’ Jane Doe (& others) to such powerful people were to ingratiate himself with them for business, personal, political, and financial gain,” the document alleged, “as well as to obtain potential blackmail information”. theguardian.com/world/2015/jan…
“He would bring young girls (as young as 12) to the US for sexual purposes, farm them out to his friends, esp Epstein,” filing states. “Brunel would offer the girls ‘modeling’ jobs. Many..came from poor countries/backgrounds..he lured them in w a promise of making good money.”

Former Dean of Yale Law School:
Brett Kavanaugh Cannot Have It Both Ways politi.co/2pGXFx3 via @politico
For as long as Kavanaugh sits on the court, he will remain a symbol of partisan anger...behind the smiling face of judicial benevolence lies the force of an urgent will to power. No one... could possibly believe that Kavanaugh might actually be a detached and impartial judge.
Each and every Republican who votes for Kavanaugh, therefore, effectively announces that they care more about controlling the Supreme Court than they do about the legitimacy of the court itself.

There will be hell to pay.

Nunes buried evidence on Russian meddling to protect Trump
Committee Democrats asked to immediately send transcripts to Mueller, who hasn’t been allowed to see them under Nunes’ rules. There’s good reason to believe many witnesses committed perjury or offered info relevant to the SC’s work.

Nunes opposed it, and it was voted down.
Committee Democrats then moved to have the transcripts released to the public immediately — after a 10-day intelligence community review — to avoid any selective release or other political manipulation.

Again, Nunes opposed this.
