Former Democrat financier Jeffrey Epstein was recently arrested (on a Saturday night, no less) and charged (again) with sexual trafficking of minors. Having long been suspected of illicit behavior since well before (and after) his first conviction in 2008, Epstein’s alleged behavior and light sentence was nonetheless met with surprise by many who are exclusively spoon-fed by the mainstream media.
Attorneys for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein touted his close friendship with Bill Clinton and even claimed the billionaire helped start Clinton’s controversial family foundation in a 2007 letter aimed at boosting his image during plea negotiations, FoxNews.com has learned.
A FoxNews.com investigation in May showed the former president was a frequent flier on Epstein’s infamous jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,” which earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.
Flight logs obtained exclusively by FoxNews.com show the former president taking at least 26 trips around the world aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights.
Bill has attempted to distance himself from Epstein, claiming he took just “four trips” on Epstein’s plane, even though flight logs plainly demonstrate this is an obvious lie. But he’s hardly the only one – Wikipedia editors (possibly working for the Clinton Foundation) have been caught trying to minimize the Clinton-Epstein connection:
Seems Wikipedia has altered Epstein’s bio already. First screenshot of Epstein’s bio was at 8:27 a.m. The 2nd was at 10:30 a.m. omitting Bill Clinton & Spacy yet leaving Trump! That is frightening. Same exact bio of Epstein, different times. https://t.co/T6lUHD8TrO pic.twitter.com/5QrjuovwHB

However, the timing of Epstein’s arrest begs the question – if authorities knew about him for decades, why is this going down now? And the answer is to look no further than Trump administration Labor Secretary Alex Acosta.
Acosta is part of the reason Epstein skated in 2008 – in addition to Bill Clinton and the many other character witnesses who vouched for Epstein, Acosta brokered the plea deal which saw him serve just 13 months in prison for soliciting prostitution from a 14 year old girl. The heavily-liberal SDNY, Preet Bharara‘s former playground and now anti-Trump stronghold, has decided to bring a new case now, using the backdrop of an “unsealed” indictment to charge Epstein.
After ignoring Epstein’s conduct occurring in their backyard for decades, does anyone really believe that the SDNY all of a sudden decided to bring justice for Epstein’s many victims?
Acosta obviously shouldn’t skate for his role in Epstein’s wrist slap, and probably shouldn’t have been hired by Trump in the first place, given his role in the affair. But if the mainstream media didn’t care about it a decade ago, why do they care about it now?
CBS News legal analyst Rikki Klieman called the 2008 plea deal “appalling.” “You have a sex trafficking indictment with multiple victims, it goes away, and the victims are never informed about it,” Klieman said, adding “Why would you do that? Well, because it was really a terrible, terrible plea deal.”
And Fake News CNN‘s entire “Opinion” section on the matter has nothing to do with how or why Epstein was able to get away with sexually assaulting underage girls for decades – nope, it’s all about why “Trump should dump Acosta”:
Thanks in part to investigative reporting by The Miami Herald, Acosta is now under scrutiny for his handling of Epstein’s case, and he could be summoned to testify before Congress. But with or without a congressional hearing, one thing is clear: Acosta must face the consequences of arranging such an improper agreement. He should step down as labor secretary.
Meanwhile, the media is desperate to connect Epstein to Trump. They were indeed a pair of NYC billionaires who used to be buddy-buddy with each other, and the MSM keeps harping a 2002 quote from Trump praising Epstein…
I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. 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.
