Elder Patriot – While the mainstream media spent the past decade-plus ignoring this story and alibying for high-profile friends of accused pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, the Miami Herald has been doggedly pursuing evidence and victims of the politically connected billionaire.
Among those connected to Epstein, and his infamous Pedophile Island, is former President Bill Clinton whose name is said to appear twenty-seven times on flight logs for Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the Lolita Express.
Investigative reporter Conchita Sarnoff told Fox News” Shannon Bream that almost every time Clinton was on the plane there were underage girls on the plane. Make what you will of this information.
(Miami Herald) At least a dozen new victims have come forward to claim they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein…
The Miami Herald article continues:
Following Epstein’s arrest Saturday in New Jersey, four women have reached out to New York lawyer David Boies, and at least 10 other women have approached other lawyers who have represented dozens of Epstein’s alleged victims in the past.
Jack Scarola, a Palm Beach attorney, said at least five women, all of whom were minors at the time of their alleged encounters with Epstein, have reached out to either him or Fort Lauderdale lawyer Brad Edwards.
“The people we are speaking to are underage victims in Florida and in New York. They are not individuals whose claims have previously been part of any law enforcement investigation,” Scarola said.
According to the report in the Herald, prosecutors claim to have information that Epstein recruited and paid dozens of underage girls for sex in New York and Florida.
While it’s a virtual certainty that Epstein is guilty, probably on all counts, the real question is whether U.S. attorneys from the SDNY have the stomach for prosecuting cases against Epstein’s high-profile friends.
The accused pedophile has spent decades being photographed with former and future presidents, wealthy icons of business, academicians, and celebrities.
Because of his wealth and his contacts across the globe, and the potential that he may be sentenced to 45 years in prison, prosecutors consider Epstein a flight risk. They requested the court to remand Epstein without bail.
Victims’ lawyers also told the court that, during the 2006-2007 Palm Beach investigation, Epstein’s previously sought to intimidate victims and their families, and that therefore bail should be denied.
According to prior reporting by the Miami Herald federal agents considered charging Epstein with witness tampering because he used some of his employees to try to intimidate victims so that they wouldn’t cooperate with police.
In one instance, a victim’s father told Palm Beach police that he had been followed by someone and forced off the road. He wrote down the car’s license plate number and police traced it to a private investigation company that had been hired by Epstein’s legal team, the police report about the incident said.
Epstein’s investigators also followed the then-Palm Beach police chief, Michael Reiter, and the lead detective in the case, Joe Recarey. Recarey said he was so concerned about the aggressive tactics Epstein was using that he would often switch vehicles in an attempt to throw them off.
“At some point it became like a cat-and-mouse game. I would stop at a red light and go. I knew they were there, and they knew I knew they were there. I was concerned about my kids because I didn’t know if it was someone that they hired just out of prison that would hurt me or my family,’’ Recarey told the Herald as part of its series on the case.
Recarey, who died shortly after he was interviewed by the Herald, said the victims, who were as young as 13, were scared to death of Epstein, and even more so because of the private investigators and defense lawyers who dug into every dark corner of their lives, and the lives of their brothers, sisters, parents and boyfriends.
Who are these connected, rich and powerful people that ordered prosecutors to ignore the clear obstruction of justice that was being carried out by Epstein’s minions?
They wouldn’t be the same players that seem so desperate to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice over a crime that wasn’t, would they?
