Although Jeffrey Epstein was arrested five weeks ago on federal charges of sex trafficking of minors, for some reason the Feds still hadn’t raided his home in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After he died over the weekend of what the government is calling an “apparent suicide,” the raid is now officially underway as we speak.
Everyone from the FBI to the NYPD is participating in a joint raid and evidence collection operation right now at Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands, according to NBC News and ABC News. Two things stand out here as crucial about the raids.
First, this comes after the U.S. Attorney for the SDNY stressed that the investigation would continue after Epstein’s death and that there was a “conspiracy” charge against him, which – as Palmer Report explained yesterday – means by definition that Epstein has alleged co-conspirators. This raid strongly suggests that the probe truly is continuing.
Second, the inclusion of the New York Police Department suggests that this raid really is the real deal. If corrupt Attorney General Bill Barr were attempting to have the Feds merely seize the evidence against Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirators and then secretly destroy it, the NYPD would not have been invited to participate.
