We had the whole “Spygate” operation of the Obama administration illegally spying on the Trump campaign and then the Trump presidency.
Then we had the whole Russian collusion hoax, which was launched by the DOJ and the FBI, and then perpetuated by the democrats and the fake news mainstream media for over two years!
Then we had Jeffrey Epstein, who was either silenced or allowed to commit suicide, in order to protect his influential fellow pedophiles.
Then we had the impeachment hoax of President Trump, who was accused of doing exactly what former vice president Joe Biden actually did (a quid pro quo arrangement with The Ukraine).
Then we had the Hunter Biden “funny money” cases with The Ukraine, China, and Russia, which were smothered by the DOJ, the FBI, and the media, including social media.
And now we have election “irregularities” and questionable voting machine software manipulation, in which the usual partners in crime ar all choosing to look the other way.
It is sooo painfully obvious now that the DOJ and the FBI are in the back pockets of the democrats.
It is sooo obvious that you can expect that no one will go to jail over any of this, and no one will even be charged with anything over any of this.
The fix is in, my friends.
The foxes, or better said the rats, are in charge of the hen house.
In the case of the Epstein investigation, those in danger of being implicated as pedophiles, or somehow assisting in the allowance of this behavior, are all liberals, democrats, establishment RINOs, politicians, or royals, I might add, which include well-known heads of state and successful businessmen, as well as at least one high-powered lawyer, and science luminaries. Some of them have already been accused of participation in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring.
Les Wexner, the billionaire behind U.S. fashion retailer L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret.
French modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel became a member of Epstein’s inner circle in the early 2000s. Brunel “fed” Epstein young girls from “poor backgrounds,” and “lured” them in with “a promise of making good money.” Instead, Brunel would “farm them out to his friends,” including Epstein, “for sexual purposes.”
Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.
Alan Dershowitz, a high-powered lawyer and Harvard Law professor who helped broker a deal with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Alexander Acosta. Before the FBI’s proposed indictment could be presented to a grand jury, Epstein signed a seriously lenient non-prosecution agreement, pleading guilty to a single count of solicitation of a minor in exchange for a cushy 13-month sentence.
Billionaire power couple Glenn Dubin and Eva Andersson-Dubin.
Former President Bill Clinton and Epstein did quite a bit of jet setting on the “Lolita Express,” the press nickname for Epstein’s private Boeing 727 jet.
Former democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell.
Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.
Media mogul, billionaire, and former owner of the New York Daily News and the Atlantic, Mort Zuckerman.
Attorney General William Barr once also served as counsel at Kirkland and Ellis, the law firm that represented Epstein for his obscenely lenient 2008 plea deal. This explains a lot.
Ken Starr. The former independent counsel who investigated President Clinton, Starr served on Epstein’s all-star legal team in 2008, helping to strike a deal that landed Epstein in jail for only 13 months, with work release six days a week. In 2015, Starr dryly defended his work for Epstein: “I was happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”
Stephen Hawking. In addition to his time on “pedophile island,” Hawking took a boat cruise and submarine tour funded by Epstein. According to the Telegraph, Epstein “paid for the submarine to be modified for Professor Hawking, who had never been underwater before.”
According to flight logs of Epstein’s plane, Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker hitched a ride on the “Lolita Express” in 2002.
Other notable people with ties to Epstein are Harvey Weinstein, Alec Baldwin, and Ted Kennedy.
Guest lists for dinners at his Manhattan townhouse also give a picture of his influence: In 2010, a dinner for Prince Andrew included Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, and Woody Allen.
Vicky Ward, the journalist who wrote the 2003 Vanity Fair profile of Epstein, told Slate that “You got the feeling that his friends weren’t real friends — he owned them — that he was the kind of man who collected information about people and then used it over them.” Ward has also offered a more scathing assessment, saying, “What is so amazing to me is how his entire social circle knew about this and just blithely overlooked it … all mentioned the girls, as an aside.”
Thanks to Adam K. Raymond and Matt Stieb from New York Magazine’s Intelligencer and Amelia McDonell-Parry for Rolling Stone Magazine for their reporting on Epstein’s relationships.
According to James Hill of Good Morning America , “Victims’ rights lawyers who have been battling the U.S. Department of Justice for a dozen years over the controversial ‘sweetheart deal’ reached by federal prosecutors in Florida with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are blasting the department’s long-awaited review of the deal as ‘offensive’ and a ‘whitewash.’”
Like I said, could we reasonably expect anything else from the Department of in-Justice?
‘“I think, frankly, what we got was an effort to paper over what happened,’ said Paul Cassell, a former federal judge who now represents Epstein accusers. ‘I think they’re trying to put the most favorable light on what’s clearly misconduct on the part of their attorneys.’”
“A 350-page report from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which was made public Thursday, determined none of the five federal prosecutors who were deeply involved in the Epstein investigation committed professional misconduct or violated any clear and unambiguous rules when they reached the deal without informing or consulting with victims.”
Of course not.
“Instead, the OPR report faulted former Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, then the U.S. Attorney in Miami, for exhibiting ‘poor judgment’ in deciding to resolve the Epstein case through a non-prosecution agreement and in failing to make certain the alleged victims were notified in advance of Epstein’s guilty plea in state court that ended the federal investigation.”
‘“They just say he used poor judgment, and that’s their way of basically letting everyone off the hook while offering some sort of an olive branch to the victims that we acknowledge weren’t treated perfectly,’ said Brad Edwards, who sued the DOJ in 2008 on behalf of Epstein accusers, seeking to invalidate the once-secret deal. ‘But nobody really did anything wrong. It’s really offensive. It’s hurtful.’”
“Jena-Lisa Jones, who has alleged Epstein sexually abused her when she was just 14, called the Justice Department’s conclusions ‘like another slap in the face’ to victims.”
Better a “slap in the face” to you, Ms. Jones, than any harm come to any of their rich and powerful pedophile friends.
‘“Poor judgment is cheating on a spelling test or speeding five miles over the speed limit. That would be poor judgment to me,’ Jones said after attending a four-hour government briefing on the report’s findings at the FBI office in Miami. ‘I honestly don’t think that anybody will take responsibility in any sense, in any shape or form in the way that they actually should as adults.’”
The funny thing is that she thought anyone would!
“The OPR report, which took 22 months to complete, is not likely to be the last word on the Florida prosecutors’ treatment of Epstein, who was arrested last year by federal authorities in New York and then died while in custody in a Manhattan detention center.”
22 months to complete the report!
This is so typical of their modus operandi (MO), regarding the DOJ and the FBI. Delay, delay, delay. Excuse, excuse, excuse. Then, Ignore, ignore, ignore.
“Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who requested the department review after the Miami Herald’s in-depth reports on the Epstein case were published in late 2018, harshly criticized OPR’s conclusions and vowed to keep investigating what he labeled a ‘disgusting failure.’”
‘“Letting a well-connected billionaire get away with child rape and international sex trafficking isn’t “poor judgment” — it is a disgusting failure. Americans ought to be enraged,’ said the senator, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee. ‘Jeffrey Epstein should be rotting behind bars today, but the Justice Department failed Epstein’s victims at every turn.’”
Not to mention a slew of his well connected cohorts!
‘“OPR might have finished its report, but we have an obligation to make sure this never happens again,’ Sasse said in a statement.”
Whatever you say, Senator Sass.
“Authorities in New York, meanwhile, have vowed to continue investigating anyone who may have conspired with Epstein or assisted him in the commission of his alleged crimes. Earlier this year, Manhattan prosecutors charged Epstein’s former girlfriend and close associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, with helping to facilitate and, in some cases, participating in Epstein’s crimes against three minor girls in the mid-1990s. Maxwell pleaded not guilty and has long denied any knowledge of Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking. Her trial is scheduled for next summer.”
Oh goody! More investigations that will end up being big wastes of time.
“And next month, lawyers Edwards and Cassell will argue before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta that the Epstein deal, which also conferred federal immunity to any potential co-conspirators, should be rescinded because it was reached in violation of the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act.”
Ah, yes…, that all important “federal immunity!”
You can ask Hillary’s friends about that as well.
“Villafaña [former federal case prosecutor Marie Villafaña] told OPR that she ‘could not seem to get [her supervisors] to understand the seriousness of Epstein’s behavior and the fact that he was probably continuing to commit the behavior, and that there was a need to move with necessary speed.’”
Oh, they understood alright.
“Much has been made over the years of Epstein employing a ‘dream team’ of highly skilled lawyers to help persuade federal prosecutors to drop their investigation. Epstein’s advocates included the famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr, best known for his role as the independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, which eventually led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.”
“During the negotiations over the deal, Epstein supplemented his team with Starr and Jay Lefkowitz, who had served in the administrations of former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Lefkowitz and Starr had each worked previously with Acosta when he was a junior associate at the law firm of Kirkland & Ellis. Acosta met personally with Lefkowitz and Starr after the non-prosecution agreement was signed but while Epstein’s attorneys were pursuing further review of the deal’s terms at higher levels of the Justice Department.”
Justin Vallejo for The Independent writes that, “Swaths of country believe Democratic Party is a front for a pedophile ring.”
You can consider me a part of that “swath,” Mr. Vallejo.
