    Attorney General William Barr will not recuse himself from a case involving sex trafficking-related charges filed against billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein, according to reports. Bloomberg News, citing an anonymous Justice Department official, reported Barr came to the decision after speaking with ethics officials within the department. But Barr will remain recused from any Justice Department review of its decision in 2008 to let Epstein avoid prosecution on federal sex trafficking offenses. Federal prosecutors in Florida at the time reached a plea deal with Epstein that allowed him to plead guilty to two state charges of soliciting a prostitute while avoiding...

    The arrest of the apparent billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein at a New Jersey airport on Saturday on federal charges for crimes he was accused of during the Bush administration should not be surprising to anyone who has followed the news carefully. He may have escaped in 2008 with a ludicrous one-year stint in a county jail that he was allowed to leave six days a week, but his name has never quite been out of the headlines. Between 2008 and 2015 Epstein reportedly settled more than a dozen lawsuits from Jane Does alleging sexual assault; the youngest of his alleged...

    A massive trove of potentially explosive court documents involving convicted billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein — which could reveal new allegations of abuse against “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well‐known Prime Minister and other world leaders” — should be made public, a federal court has ruled. The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit acknowledged that the 2,000 pages of documents — which are related to a defamation lawsuit filed by one of Epstein’s accusers — have the potential to “damage privacy and reputation” and reveal new allegations against powerful world leaders and others....

    I'm sorry to say this, but Epstein's justified and long-delayed prosecution and inevitable life-sentence, either pragmatic or through judgment, was done with ONE purpose: To hurt Donald Trump. There are several reasons why this is so. 1. This is not a federal indictment, but a STATE indictment, specifically, New York State. As the arresting authority, they have first digs at Trump, even before the feds can weigh in. This is key, because as the arresting authority, they can control the prosecution strategy, the venue, and the narrative. 2. Another huge tell: The actual prosecution unit being assigned is from CORRUPTION,...

    On Saturday, billionaire financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for the alleged sex trafficking of dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005. In a criminal indictment unsealed Monday, federal prosecutors claimed that Epstein lured underage girls, some as young as 14, to his luxurious homes in Manhattan and Palm Beach under the guise of paying them cash for massages. He then molested them and encouraged them to recruit other young girls to return with them. The victims who returned with new victims were paid a finder’s fee. “In this way, Epstein created...
