Skip to comments.Jeffrey Epstein, serial sex abuser, settles one case, apologizes. Next up: federal court
Posted on 12/04/2018 10:41:14 AM PST by detective
A trial that could have allowed the victims of serial molester Jeffrey Epstein to finally tell their stories from a witness stand was aborted Tuesday when it was announced in court that the case had been settled.
It ended with an apology not to the dozens of women who were sexually abused by Epstein as underage girls, but to the lawyer who represented them.
There is also a monetary settlement, which is undisclosed.

Separate litigation seeks to undo a controversial non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated in secret 10 years ago between the Palm Beach multimillionaires lawyers and the U.S. attorney for South Florida, Alex Acosta.
The case is pending. Edwards has argued that the settlement was illegal because it was executed without telling Epsteins victims, an apparently violation of the Crime Victims Rights Act. That law entitles crime victims in federal cases to be informed of developments, including plea deals and court hearings.
The women were deliberately kept in the dark, emails obtained by the Miami Herald showed.
There are flight manifests from Epstein’s aircraft from Ft.Lauderdale to Pedophile Island.
Some notables like Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Senator Menendez and others to include Prince Edward were on those manifests.
Hilda has flown on the same plane a few times to the same island.

How a future Trump Cabinet member gave .........
I read part of that last week. Closed the tab when I realized how SELECTIVELY they were reporting on this BOMBSHELL.
Surprised that this perviest of pervs wasn’t hillaried when he was serving his cushy one year sentence in the joint. I would much prefer to read about him being found face down in a tray of lumpy prison gravy with a filed-down mattress spring protruding from his back than about him buying people’s silence, and still breathing.
We do not have a two-tiered justice system.
We have a multi-tiered justice system.
Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein are second- or third-tier. They are not absolutely untouchable, but they get spankings instead of hangings.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are first-tier.
Everything is but an opportunity to defame and denounce Trump.
When the Miami reporter started naming names of famous people involved - democrats, Hollywood, etc... the Joe crew got uncomfortable and basically said, “What about Trump?”. She said, “no”... but if the corrupt press thinks Trump might be involved in any way - they'll give life back to the story.
Guess that's the only way to get the press to look at anything: tell them Trump might have a connection...
Morning Joe’s picking up the child rape orgy story...
Joe’s smiling sycophants were breathless this morning in hopes Trump could be brought into the fray since Epstein’s el Brillo Way Rape Den is in Palm Beach.

How a future Trump Cabinet member gave a serial sex abuser the deal of a lifetime”
It has been documented that Jeffrey Epstein was a close friend, supporter and donor to the Clintons.
It has been documented that Bill Clinton was a frequent visitor to Epstein’s pedo island and that Epstein procured underage girls for Clinton to have sex with.
It is documented that Epsteins victims were intimidated and shamed into silence by the federal and state prosecutors who were supposed to hold Epstein accountable.
It is documented that Palm Beach Police were pressured by then-Palm Beach State Attorney Barry Krischer to drop the case.
It has been documented that evidence in the investigation of Epstein was being forwarded to Epstein by local officials and local police.
It is documented that in May 2006 Palm Beach Police took a very public stance against State Attorney Krischer, writing a letter, which was released to the news media, calling on Krischer to remove himself from the case. The chief then referred it to the FBI, which opened its own investigation in July 2006, FBI records show.
It is documented by FBI emails and memos that the case was run from FBI headquarters in Washington DC and that the FBI sabotaged the investigation. The FBI refused to interview witnesses and refused to gather evidence.
If you think that a single Assistant Attorney did all this, then you are naïve.
And you completely missed the point. That one single assistant attorney is now in the Trump administration. Does that sound like draining the swamp to you?
“And you completely missed the point. That one single assistant attorney is now in the Trump administration. Does that sound like draining the swamp to you?”
You are either simply naïve or a Trump hater.
I politely and patiently tried to explain to you in detail that the Clintons were heavily involved and the entire case was fixed from the beginning.
You are now trying to blame president Trump.
The Assistant U.S. Attorney may have been able to have done better but you do not know that. The Florida State Attorney had refused to prosecute. The case was fixed. Now years later you are saying that one assistant attorney was entirely responsible for it all and that it is Trump’s fault.
I'm neither. I see someone who, despite his best efforts, is being overwhelmed by the Swamp.
