    Donald Trump's "Terrific" Pedophile Friend

    Do charges against Jeffrey Epstein signal 'bigger targets'?

    USA TODAY Opinion Barbara McQuade,USA TODAY Opinion 16 hours ago

    One intriguing aspect of a new criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein is that the matter is assigned to the Public Corruption Unit of the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office. As its name implies, that unit typically handles cases involving public officials. Epstein is instead the billionaire money manager who socializes with powerful people such as Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew.

    On Monday, federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) announced criminal charges against Epstein, alleging that he “sexually exploited and abused dozens of underage girls” between 2002 and 2005.

    Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty.

    Significantly, the indictment covers conduct occurring not only at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion but also at his home in Palm Beach, Florida. The indictment alleges that Epstein worked with several employees and associates to entice girls as young as 14 to come to his homes to perform sex acts in exchange for money. He used some of the girls to recruit other minor victims by paying them, building a “vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit.” The indictment alleges that he targeted girls who were, “for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation.”

    Long prison sentence facing Epstein
    The trafficking count carries a sentence of up to 40 years in federal prison, where parole has been abolished.

    In addition, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman stated that during the execution of a search warrant at Epstein’s home, agents found nude photographs of what appeared to be underage girls. That evidence could result in charges of possessing or even manufacturing child pornography, which carries an additional mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years per count. The math could add up quickly. Such a potentially lengthy sentence gives a defendant a powerful incentive to cooperate in the investigation and prosecution of others.

    Abuse in the Boy Scouts: I was thrilled to be a Boy Scout, then for months I was sexually abused by my scoutmaster

    This isn't Epstein's first scandal
    Adding to the intrigue is Epstein’s history. He was the subject of a controversial nonprosecution agreement that was negotiated in 2007 with former Miami U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta, who now serves as the U.S. secretary of Labor. The agreement stated that Epstein was under investigation for violating sex trafficking laws for conduct occurring between 2001 and 2007. The agreement provided that no federal charges would be filed, and permitted Epstein to plead guilty to a single state charge of soliciting prostitution.

    The agreement also provided that Epstein would serve 18 months in custody, but, in fact, he served only 13 months, mostly on work release at his own office. Epstein also acknowledged that he would be required to register as a sex offender and agreed to pay restitution to the victims.

    In February, a judge found that prosecutors violated federal law by failing to notify the victims of the agreement before it was entered in court. The Department of Justice is now investigating allegations of professional misconduct by DOJ attorneys in handling the case.

    Protesters hold up photos of Jeffrey Epstein outside a courthouse in New York on July 8, 2019.

    In a particularly unusual provision of that agreement, Acosta agreed that prosecutors would “not institute any criminal charges against any potential co-conspirators of Epstein” and would “suspend” the grand jury investigation. That provision suggests Epstein was seeking to protect others beyond himself.

    Epstein could have co-conspirators
    It is unclear what has prompted the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York to file charges after the passage of so much time, but it is not bound by any promises made by another U.S. Attorney’s Office. Epstein was never charged under federal law in Florida, and so no jeopardy has attached for double jeopardy purposes. SDNY prosecutors were able to capture the conduct that occurred in Florida by using a conspiracy charge alleging that this part of the conspiracy occurred in New York. So long as any part of a conspiracy occurs in a particular district, the crime of conspiracy may be charged in that district, even if other parts of the conspiracy occurred elsewhere. Perhaps prosecutors simply want to vindicate the rights of victims who were mistreated in Florida. Or perhaps prosecutors have bigger targets than Epstein in mind.

    Assault still a problem for military: Military sexual assaults spiked in 2018, and that means leaders are still failing to lead

    If Epstein were protecting any potential co-conspirators during his negotiations with Acosta, the public corruption prosecutors in SDNY now have the leverage to find out.

    Looks like Epstein’s political connections are failing him. Everyone knew what this guy was but he was too politically connected to prosecute. Funny. Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s jet several times. Well we already knew he was a disturbed perv. I would like to think we will see some justice on those who were above the law but I’m skeptical. I’m sure there’s dirty players on both sides of the isle but these things always take a partisan turn.

    Yeah, I agree, Clinton was feathering this guys fucking chode a bit. But I think it's more than just political connections here, there's only so much shit one can eat without vomiting and this guy is a real fucking piece of shit. The serial predator of homeless girls-thing isn't going to be ignored anymore. Not after Nassar and MeToo#, for better or worse but better I think...

    Epstein was probably making a fortune off of human trafficking and running a honey trap. Then you have the Nxivm case in New York State. Right now human trafficking is generating more money than drugs. A human trafficking ring got busted here. Child prostitution is rampant in resort towns and in cities where something big like the Super Bowl is going on.

    So busting some of these rings open probably will reveal a bigger and deeper cess pool.

    The problem is nobody is going to jail. Nobody went to jail for the subprime housing crises. Another subprime bubble is ready to pop again with small business loans. The politically connected get bailouts and get out of jail free cards. Nobody going to jail just breeds more corruption.

    It used to be it didn’t matter what party you were in. Your own party would come after you if you went too far. Not anymore. The Republicans protect their own crooks and the Democrats protect theirs. Nobody cares about the greater good for the country. Nobody cares about budgets so we are heading for the only thing that can be done is have a big war to reset the economy. It’s why powerful people want war and unrest so bad. Nothing can be fixed but you can hit the reset button by blowing it all up and then positioning yourself to take advantage when the smoke clears.

    I doubt it was about money, it was about fucking/raping underage teen girls....

    Epstein would have skated scot free if it weren’t for that journalist at the Miami Herald. Nice to see we have a few real journalists left. But the whole Epstein thing shows how sick the system has become. They need to investigate everyone on the plane manifest. Plus the guy wasn’t running hedge funds. He was a full time pimp. A real hedge fund manager wouldn’t have time to run that level of hanky panky.

    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.”
    It's pretty fucked up that Attorney General William Barr's father hired Epstein to teach at a school even though he had no qualifications.

    There's a new article in the NY Times saying that Epstein is essentially a fake billionaire and isn't as nearly as rich as many have let on...

    I'm on a binge watch of House of Cards at the moment and a character as bad as Epstein would have seemed a stretch...
