    Its in the indictment and past depositions. Epstein had that lady and some other employee plus some of the girls themselves find him girls and get them to give him "massages" for pay.

    I have only seen that one girls deposition from years ago and it says nothing about Trump except that is where she was working I think when that lady with Epstein got her to start doing that with Epstein for money. I think she did name Prince Andrew as specifically having relations with her and she said she saw Clinton there some but couldn't say if he had messed with any girl at Epstein's place or not. Trump barred Epstein from his place once he heard about the mess.

    I thought I heard that US Atty say they found pictures of what appeared to be underage girls when they raided Epstein's properties. It would be something if they found the alleged "blackmail" pictures/videos everyone talks about. He may have hid them somewhere else however if they really do exist.

    Yep. That happens as well. Of course, the wealthy white guy in the photo has far more political juice than the wealthy black guy and has not been charged - other than perjury which was previously adjudicated. We will have to wait and see as whatever justice there is to be had happens.

    Epstein Arrest Is a Worry for Donald Trump

    Epstein, who has been accused repeatedly over the years of manipulatingand molesting underage girls, was arrested at a New Jersey airport on Saturday, according to multiple media reports. The Daily Beast, which broke the news of Epstein’s arrest, correctly predicted that prosecutors would accuse the financier of luring minors and other women to his homes by offering cash for massages and then sexually molesting them.

    In an interesting twist, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan has put its public corruption unit in charge of the Epstein case – not, as might be expected, its human-trafficking team (although the latter unit is being consulted reportedly). It’s likely, at least in part, that the case is being handled by corruption prosecutors because of a controversial and lenient plea deal struck between Epstein and federal law enforcement officials in Florida back in 2008. The financier was being investigated at the time for having sex with underage girls – many of them orphans or runaways – at his Palm Beach mansion.

    Alexander Acosta, who is now President Donald Trump’s labor secretary, was the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida in 2008 and he supervised the group of lawyers that forged the Epstein deal. Members of Acosta’s team from that period have said that they lacked the evidence to prove Epstein had violated federal law and did as much as they could to see that justice was served. But Julie Brown, a Miami Herald reporter, publisheda series of stories last fall that raised questions about Acosta’s independence and prompted the new federal probes of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Miami.

    The financier was a member of Trump’s Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, and the men dined at one another’s homes. Trump flew on Epstein’s plane at least once. According to Brown, Epstein is quoted in court papers as saying he wanted to set up his modeling agency – which prosecutors believe he used to get access to underage girls – “the same way Trump set up his modeling agency.”

    FYI
    "Years before Trump nominated him to be labor secretary, Acosta explained in a “To whom it may concern” letter that he had backed away from the Epstein case after “a year-long assault on the prosecution and the prosecutors” by “an army of legal superstars” who represented Epstein, including Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth Starr, who had led the investigation that brought about Clinton’s impeachment.

    “Defense counsel investigated individual prosecutors and their families, looking for personal peccadilloes,” Acosta wrote.

    Dershowitz said no such probe into the lives of prosecutors ever happened. He said Acosta tried to nail Epstein but failed. Acosta’s “intention was to indict, and he fought hard and tried to get the best deal he could,” Dershowitz told The Post last year. “We outlawyered him"

    From 2018,,

    More on Trump, Clinton and this scum bag.

    Clinton frequently flew with Epstein aboard his plane, then suddenly stopped – raising the suspicion that the friendship abruptly ended, perhaps because of events related to Epstein’s sexual abuse of children,” it said.

    But what they also did not see was the fact that, before anyone was going after Epstein, President Trump took action against him.


    And is was the attorney of some of Epstein’s victims that told the courts that Trump, before he was president, took the action.

    Epstein was barred from President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., ‘because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,, according to court documents,’” The Washington Post reported.

    Epstein will roll on some huge names in order to reduce his sentence. He is just like J. Edgar Hoover. He has dirt on quite a few very powerful men.

    Correct. Kubrick made Eyes Wide Shut in order to clue the sheeple in on what really goes on with men of serious wealth and power. The Russian Mob has long been some of the main people behind underage sex trafficking to wealthy and powerful clientele. The Mexican Cartels and Chinese Triad are also behind it.

    Epstein is not just a total perv, he is a stupid one at that. He manages to luck out with a favorable plea deal in his first prosecution, then goes right back to his depraved ways, this time documenting it with photographs. He is toast, and justifiably so.

    This is sure going to be interesting to watch. He is going to rat on everyone to try and save his sorry ass.

    And can you imagine the fallout if he serves up Clinton and Trump? Think about it--U.S. Presidents involved with trafficking minors for sexual activity. Wow.

    Only the best...

    Everybody, even conservatives, seem to know Epstein is a scumbag, and trump's labor secretary gave this scumbag a sweetheart deal, so why hasn't trump already fired him?

    The prosecutor who helped cut Jeffrey Epstein's ultra-lenient plea deal for sex crimes is now Trump's labor secretary

    Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta is facing renewed scrutiny for his role in offering Jeffrey Epstein a secret plea deal in 2008 that critics have denounced as too lenient following the financier's arrest on new charges Sunday.

    According to a Miami Herald investigation, when Acosta was a US attorney for Southern Florida in 2008, he played a key role in brokering Epstein's deal.

    It saw him plead guilty to two charges of soliciting a minor for prostitution, spending 13 months of an 18 month sentence in prison, and released during the day for six days a week so he could work in his office.

    According a series of investigations by the Miami Herald, Acosta played a personal role in brokering the deal, which was kept secret from Epstein's victims until had been approved.

    It is the public corruption unit. They don’t do sex cases. We will see where this leads. Hopefully to justice.
