Trump Was ‘Only One’ To Help Prosecutor In 2009 Epstein Case

3829

With the Saturday arrest of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein on charges of sex-trafficking minors – days after a judge ordered that nearly 2,000 documents be made public following a 2017 court motion originally brought by filmmaker and author Mike Cernovich, the internet is once again abuzz with speculation over who exactly might be implicated by the new evidence.

Epstein pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting prostitution from a 14 year old girl in 2008 for which he served 13 months in jail in a sweetheart deal with the DOJ brokered by current Labor Secretary Alex Acosta. The sealed records appeal, meanwhile, stemmed from a separate 2015 defamation lawsuit in New York brought by Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre against British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. Giuffre says Maxwell helped Epstein traffic herself and other underage girls to sex parties at the billionaire pedophile’s many residences.

The case was settled in 2017 and the records were sealed – leading to an appeal by Cernovich, who was later joined by the Miami Herald and several other parties including lawyer Alan Dershowitz – who seeks to clear his name in connection with Epstein’s activities.

 

And while Democrats have suggested that the new evidence may implicate President Trump – who once called Epstein a “Terrific guy” who “likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side” (yet reportedly kicked the billionaire pedophile out of his Mar-a-Lago club for trying to recruit an underage girl) others are focusing on the Clintons.

A the NY Post detailed in 2016, Epstein and the Clintons are close.

Epstein has spent the bulk of his adult life cultivating relationships with the worlds most powerful men. Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epsteins private plane, dubbed The Lolita Express by the press, 26 times. After Epsteins arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Superdelegate daughter Christine quipped on Twitter “It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may.”

 

And what about Trump?

Following a 2018 financial settlement between Florida attorney Bradley Edwards – who represented one of Epstein’s accusers, only to be later sued by Epstein, Edwards claimed that Donald Trump was the ‘only person’ who provided assistance when Edwards served subpoenas and notices to high-profile individuals connected to Epstein.

Edwards: The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk.  I’ll give you as much time as you want.  I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.

Meanwhile, as we noted in 2017, opposition research firm Fusion GPS tried and failed to find evidence of a close relationship between then-candidate Donald Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, whose ‘Lolita Express” private jet ferried powerful clients to his private island, “Little St. James.”

While trying to tie Trump to Epstein in an attempt to push the narrative to at least two reporters, Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS – the firm behind the unsubstantiated “Trump-Russia” dossier, found that the Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, according to the Washington Timeswhich writes “Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein,” adding “Ken Silverstein, the reporter who ultimately wrote an Epstein-Trump report, confirmed to The Times that Fusion had sourced the story.”

Mr. Silverstein, who wrote the Vice.Com story, was asked by The Washington Times if Fusion pushed the Epstein-Trump story.

Since you asked, yes, they helped me with that, Mr. Silverstein said. But as you can see, I could not make a strong case for Trump being super close to Epstein, so they could hardly have been thrilled with that story. [In my humble opinion], that was the best story written about Trumps ties to Epstein, but I failed to nail him. Trumps ties were mild compared to Bill Clintons. –Washington Times

In January 2016, Vice.com ran Silverstein’s story on Trump’s ties to Epstein, which framed them as more social – including dinner parties, two plane trips, and Epstein hanging out at Trump’s Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. As Radar reported last April, “According to an investigation by Radar, Trump was among dozens of renowned New Yorkers who knew Epstein socially but ostracized him after Palm Beach police uncovered the financiers sleazy double life,” adding that Trump “once barred child molester Jeffrey Epstein from his famed Mar-a-lago club after the presidential candidate caught him hitting on a young girl.”

  1. Surprise, surprise, some ultra wealthy and powerful men do things that the rest of us don’t do and and many of us find repulsive – because they can. And when they get caught, they pass through a different gate of the criminal justice system than we do – because they are ultra wealthy and powerful men. Which is just like everything else in their lives. Healthcare, banking, the law, the 1% and in Epstein’s case tenths of 1% simply live in a different world than the rest of us.

  2. Innocent until proven guilty! However in this case he has already been proven guilty once before. Pedophiles, like tigers, rarely change their stripes. Since he is so wealthy and politically connected, my bet is that the federal government already has an air-tight case against him. I really hope that the government goes after all the other perps he has enabled which probably includes a lot of high profile Democrats and Republicans. There is no place in our society for their sickness! Public hanging would be too good for them (after conviction?).

  3. Did anyone expect the guilty pervert Democrats to help prosecutors? All these child molesters, pedophiles, child rapists, and degenerates should pay a huge price. Epstein will probably roll over on some to get better accommodations in prison.

  4. It’s a international ring, and a lot of people involved.
    Especially in holly wood. Appears that he didn’t keep it a secret, because of the total number of victims.
    It’s a-shame billionaires get away with so much.
    He could get between 60, and 100!years in prison.
    How could anyone not know, his pilot Maxwell, Clinton, other close employees, etc.

  5. When are the Dems going to learn that the more they try to frame Trump, the more crap is showing up against their side. After Clinton’s office stated yesterday he had only been on Epstein’s plane 4 times, it is now evident it was 26 times and sometimes without his secret service, yet there were minor girls on board. Is there anything that the Clinton’s have done in their professional life that hasn’t been illegal, starting with White Water:-)

    • Whitewater was not illegal or didn’t you follow ALL of those Clinton investigations?! Try as Starr did for years and for millions of our taxpayer dollars (more than the Mueller investigation) and the only thing he concluded relative to Whitewater was that they found nothing illegal! Duh?! Get over it already!

  6. Well, we know it wasn’t Clinton or Obama who helped the prosecutors because they were probably both screwing the 14 year olds.

    • I guess you completely overlooked the young teenager who has already said that it was Epstein and TRUMP who raped and abused her?! Epstein and Trump were the only men(pedophiles) present at these parties Epstein held. Epstein’s procurer also stated (confirming the young woman’s account) he had gotten the young women for Epstein’s party. Let’s not leave Trump out of these horrendous accounts as Trump stated in 2012 that Epstein was a terrific guy and like the younger women as did he.
