Convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty to a Florida charge of felony solicitation of underage girls in 2008 and served a 13-month jail sentence, despite being accused of sexual abuse by more than 40 minor girls, has been arrested again, charged with sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, which according to renowned legal scholar, attorney and professor at the George Washington University Law School, Jonathan Turley, could "produce a sentence of 45 years in prison if Epstein were convicted."
A couple points of background via Turley regarding how the original case against Epstein was handled in a disgraceful manner:
• Epstein was notorious for his infamous “Lolita Express” where he took friends like Bill Clinton by plane to his private estate on the Caribbean island of Little Saint James with young girls who allegedly were used as prostitutes.
• Despite a strong case for prosecution, Epstein’s lawyers, including Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr, were able to secure a ridiculous deal with prosecutors. He was accused of abusing more than forty minor girls (with many between the ages of 13 and 17). Sasse is correct, the handling of the case is a disgrace but it is unlikely to result in any real punishment. Certainly not for Epstein who pleaded guilty to a Florida state charge of felony solicitation of underage girls in 2008 and served a 13-month jail sentence.
I would note that since President Trump's wife Melania is over 20 years younger than him, on the "younger side," doesn't automatically mean "underage," as the liberal media is trying to imply using that statement.
Before delving into who should and who should not be sweating right about now for fear of incriminating evidence being exposed by this latest arrest of a man many thought would never see true justice because of his powerful friends and billions of dollars, we would like to address how members of the left and the right, are using the Epstein arrest as a hammer against political opponents using the "guilt by association" strawman.
Watching the internet chatter over the past few days since the arrest, we have seen people on the right side of the political aisle highlight how often Epstein donated to Democrat candidates.
So what? He also gave to a limited amount of candidates on the right at one time, and has nothing to do with being complicit or participating in Epstein's alleged practice of providing underage girls to associates.
He also "rubbed elbows," with many prominent members of the left and the right, members of the so-called "elite" crowd.
Again, so what?
Guilt by association is not how the law works, and we certainly should never assume someone knew of Epstein's alleged crimes just because they knew him, dined with him or said nice things about him as President Trump did at one point.
Look at the BTK killer as just an example...... serial murderer, and his wife and children had no clue, nor did his neighbors or friends, yet he was brutal murderer, so just "knowing" someone and liking them, is not a crime.
One last point here for those that think because people heard "rumors" about Epstein before his original conviction, people should have "known" about his predeliction for underage minors, well rumors are not facts, evidence or proof.
Over the last couple of years we heard "rumors" by every liberal media outlet that a group of Covington Catholic students had "surrounded." "mocked," and taunted an elderly native American Vietnam vet, when in reality the man harassed the students, beating a drum in one kid's face, he approached them, and he never served in Vietnam.
We have heard the "rumor" from every liberal media outlet for three years that the Trump campaign "colluded" with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election..... again, false.
Need I go on about not convicting someone in the court of public opinion based on "rumors?"
'ELITE' PEDOPHILES SHOULD BE FREAKING OUT RIGHT ABOUT NOW
While the recently unsealed indictment against Epstein details his actions and abuse of underage victims, as well as the basis for the trafficking charge of transporting, arranging, paying victim "recruiters" to bring him more minor victims, and employees that facilitated the arrangements, according to the Miami Herald journalist, Julie K. Brown, whose investigative reporting brought new light to this case, there is evidence that Epstein may have also been providing these underage girls to others.
“Needless to say, these are very powerful people and I think that they’re sweating a little bit — especially today,” Brown said on Up Sunday. “We don’t know how much, how deep this went, how far-reaching it went in government, but there’s been a lot of names that I could see on these message pads on a regular basis as part of the evidence. These message pads where they would call Epstein and leave messages such as, ‘I’m at this hotel.’ Why do you do that, unless you’re expecting him perhaps to send a girl to visit you at your hotel?”
“So there’s probably quite a few important people, powerful people, sweating it out right now,” she said. “We’ll have to wait and see whether Epstein is going to name names, or what kind of information he’s going to try to trade, in order to maybe get out of this in some way or lower his culpability.”
The names on the message pads, would indicate that at the very least, anyone that left the type of message referred to, if they were being supplied underage girls at their hotels by Epstein, then no doubt those individuals would be freaking out right about now. If the Herald writer saw those messages, there is no doubt that prosecutors have them, which could lead to an investigation of those hotel visits, which could include video footage from the hotel in question on those exact dates, showing young girls visiting the room those individuals were in.
So, we can assume those specific individuals should be "sweating" as Brown indicated.
Flight logs obtained by Gawker in January 2015 put Mr. Clinton on the billionaire’s infamous jet more than a dozen times — sometimes with a woman whom federal prosecutors suspect of procuring underage sex victims for Mr. Epstein. Fox News reported Friday that records show Mr. Clinton declined Secret Service protection on at least five flights.
The network’s investigation reveals Mr. Clinton flew on the Boeing 727 “Lolita Express” 26 times, more than doubling the previously reported 11 trips.
Side Note: In the interest of balance, liberal media is having a field day trying to connect President Trump with Epstein, on the basis of "guilt by association," but back in December 2018, the Attorney for the alleged victims of Epstein publicly stated that Donald Trump was the only person they contacted in 2009 that "picked up the phone," he offered as much time as they needed, "was very helpful in the information he gave," and "had good information that checked out, and that helped us."
You can hear him say it at approximated the 5 minute mark in the video below.
Others that should be added to the list of people that should be freaking out after Epstein's arrest, are those that used and Epstein's homes, or "Orgy Island," for sexual encounters with underage girls.
According to a 2015 report, "Papers filed against his pervert pal Jeffrey Epstein say he recorded VIP orgies he threw at his luxury homes using cameras hidden in the walls."
If Epstein has videos of any member of the "elite" with minor girls, that could either be uncovered by prosecutors and investigators, or could be used by Epstein in order to try for a plea deal or as "cooperation" for a lighter sentence if convicted, then those people should be very concerned right now.
Another person that prosecutors would probably be smart to talk to, is liberal actress Ellen Barkin, who also decided to try to "convict" President Trump on the basis of "guilt by association," and then in an act of sheer lunacy, admitted the following on Twitter: "Epstein’s pimp girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, a very well-connected Brit socialite cannot just walk free. This woman is his pimp. She pilots planes to and from the island. I know because she told me. She is a sex trafficker."
Needless to say, other Twitter users had some pointed critique over her claim of being told the woman was a sex trafficker, but never said anything to anyone, nor reported it to authorities.
Others who should be very concerned right now, are whoever Nancy Pelosi's daughter considers "faves," meaning some of her and her families "favorite" persons or politicians?
Recently Christine Pelosi tweeted "This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may — whether on Republicans or Democrats."
It is doubtful that the radically liberal Pelosi family has any "faves" on the Republican side, so it is curious that she made this preemptive warning. More on that over at American Thinker.
When Epstein first received his sweetheart plea deal, many pointed to it as yet another example of the "elite" never having to pay for their crimes, and while the wheels of justice have been incredibly slow, after all Epstein's alleged crimes go back over a decade to 2002-2005, the FBI bringing charges against him over those crimes, at this time, shows that sometimes those wheels, while slow, do continue to spin even after the general public believe it will never happen.
