Ever since his friend Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors, Donald Trump has been acting distressed. Over the past few days in particular, Trump’s behavior has erupted into full-on panic. What precisely does Trump have to worry about? You’d have to ask him, and he’s not talking. But in a few days we’re going to get some answers.
The U.S. Court of Appeals is about to release thousands of pages of Epstein-related documents. According to Vanity Fair, the court has said that the documents may reveal sexual abuse on the part of “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.” This further cements the notion that Epstein wasn’t just a serial child rapist, he was acting as some kind of hub for other child rapists and sexual assaulters.
We have no way of knowing what names will be included in these documents, or what those people will be accused of. We have no idea if Donald Trump will be included, or in what capacity. Nor do we know if these documents will represent proof of anything, or mere documentation of allegations. But what we do know is that the Epstein scandal is about to get a whole lot bigger, and that it’s about to (predictably) expand beyond just Epstein.
This is crucial in that it puts us one step closer to justice for any and all victims involved in this scandal. When it comes to Donald Trump, let’s just say that his increasingly panicked behavior this week suggests that he had some involvement in the crimes or the coverup, and that he fears his role is about to be exposed. We’re just a few days away from getting a lot of answers.
