Our Take: The Epstein Case – Lock Them ALL Up
With the explosive revelations of federal charges for sex trafficking against billionaire and accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the elite in America is being rocked to its core.
The Epstein arrest touches every faction of the elite as we know it, from entertainment, to business, to politics. Epstein had been friends with the likes of former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew of the United Kingdom, among many, many others.
He had also been friends with President Trump at one point, and the media has tried to use this as proof that Trump may be just as guilty. But what the FakeNews will not tell you is that then-businessman Donald Trump did the right thing and disavowed Epstein, having banned him from Mar-a-Lago after Epstein sexually assaulted an underaged girl at the club. Former President Clinton, meanwhile, remained close to Epstein and even joined him for nearly 30 flights on his plane, “The Lolita Express,” to Epstein’s private “orgy island,” sometimes without his Secret Service detail in attendance.
With the lines drawn between those who distanced themselves from him and those who stayed with him, it’s no wonder that even Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, has acknowledged that this trial could very well expose the involvement of individuals within both parties. The establishment elite is that closely intertwined, and if someone as wealthy and (at one point) powerful as Epstein could still face criminal charges, then there’s no limit on who else may also go down in this scandal, as he tries to negotiate a plea deal.
The FakeNews Industrial Complex must try to bury this story to protect Clinton and other Democrats. But all Americans must keep a close eye on this case as it unfolds. There is a strong chance that Epstein will not be the only one heading off to prison when all is said and done.
The Daily Caller: Christine Pelosi: ‘Quite Likely That Some Of Our Faves’ Involved In Epstein Sex Trafficking Case
By David Krayden
Democratic Party insider Christine Pelosi sounded the alarm bells Saturday over the arrest of financier Jeffrey Epstein on new sex trafficking charges.
The Democratic National Committee member and daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the Epstein case “horrific” and predicted that some high-level names from both the Democratic and Republican parties could be “implicated” in the legal proceedings.
“This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice,” Pelosi tweeted. “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.”
Police arrested Epstein Saturday on new sex trafficking charges that resulted from renewed interest in allegations that go back almost two decades.
Epstein has been accused of hiring underage girls for massages and sex that allegedly occurred at his homes in Palm Beach and New York City. He also has a retreat in the Virgin Islands that is reportedly known as “Orgy Island.”
Although Pelosi did not name names, Epstein has been associated with political celebrities like former President Bill Clinton, British Prince Andrew and President Donald Trump. According to court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016, Clinton was a special guest on Epstein’s plane, the “Lolita Express,” for trips to the Virgin Islands.
Trump may have been a passenger on the plane on at least one occasion, and has also been critical of Clinton’s relationship with Epstein in the past, according to Fox. Trump suggested that Clinton could have “a lot of problems” as a result of that friendship in conversation with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Trump’s alleged connection to the financier includes varying stories. While Trump biographer Tim O’Brien quoted Trump as calling Epstein a “terrific guy” and “a lot of fun to be with,” the president’s legal advisors have refuted the accuracy of those words. Trump reportedly also declared his Mar-a-Lago retreat off limits to Epstein, according to Fox.
Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie K. Brown is alleging that Trump and Epstein “went to dinner parties at each other’s houses, Trump was also on his plane. Probably not as much as a lot of other people because, you know, Trump had his own plane.”
Epstein has been incarcerated at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan and is expected to make his first court appearance on the latest charges Monday in a Manhattan federal courthouse.
