It’s time we talk about Jeffrey Epstein. You know who he is: financier, philanthropist, registered sex offender and Donald Trump’s travel buddy. After sexually abusing dozens of under-age girls, Epstein received a mere slap on the wrist by then prosecutor, Alex Acosta, who is now Trump’s Secretary of Labor. Because of course.
The Epstein prosecution has now been ruled illegal by a judge, as Acosta refused to follow the law. We will see what happens to Epstein in the next months, but don’t expect this to go away any time soon. Epstein ran a plane service dubbed the “Lolita Express” in which he would host parties with underage girls in the privacy of his 727. Those who allegedly partook of such travels were Alan Dershowitz, of Fox News and Harvard Law fame, Prince Andrew, and, because, (of course!), Bill Clinton who was known to dodge his Secret Service detail for such junkets. If any of these men sexually abused under-aged girls, then all of them must go down and take the jail time.
The investigation is going to be an ugly one. There are now investigations into Trump Model Management, the modeling agency accused of bringing in underage girls from Eastern Europe to work as escorts for Trump’s rich friends. Apparently the tapes Putin may have of Trump are far worse than the Pee Pee Tape, as they too are alleged to be of him raping children.
None of this is pretty. None of it is going away. With Epstein being looked at through a microscope, all of this will be investigated. The #MeToo movement is also empowering the women who were abused as young girls to speak out. If being Putin’s lapdog wasn’t enough, if selling our nuclear secrets to Saudi Arabia wasn’t enough, I predict this will finally be enough.
We now know that Donald Trump’s close friend, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, has been charged in relation to a sex trafficking ring in Jupiter, Florida. According to ESPN, he is apparently not the biggest name involved. Which makes one wonder, whose name are they holding back for now, and why? Who is even bigger than the owner of an NFL team? Just a reminder, the “spa” where Kraft committed his alleged crimes is located about 20 miles north of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Brace yourself, America.
