The ‘Pedophile Billionaire’ as they call Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for his alleged participation in sex trafficking ‘dozens of minors’ in New York and Florida between the period of 2002 and 2005 – and it’s not going away this time. He appears in court, in New York, on Monday according to the Daily Beast who broke this story. A friend of Bill Clinton – many people wonder who Epstein is going to snitch on in hopes of getting less jail time. This is a huge story and getting bigger by the moment – read on:
Did you know:
The FBI, under Robert Mueller, let child predator Jeffrey Epstein off with a weak plea deal
Dozens of young girls accused him of assaulting them
Maybe Mueller should have gone after Epstein as hard as he went after our President

The Daily Beast reports that Saturday’s arrest by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida.
For more than a decade, Epstein’s alleged abuse of minors has been the subject of lawsuits brought by victims, investigations by local and federal authorities, and exposés in the press. But despite the attention cast on his alleged sex crimes, the hedge-funder has managed to avoid any meaningful jail time, let alone federal charges.
The new indictment—which, according to two sources, will be unsealed Monday in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach. Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.
Epstein could be locked up for 45 years, but there’s two ways he can get out of it. 1) he’s actually innocent, but that does not seem to be the case thus far. 2) he starts naming names and snitches on everyone else who was involved, getting him less jail time.
Back in 2016, the Daily Mail did an article detailing the relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton.
Daily Mail stated:
Bill Clinton’s relationship with a billionaire pedophile will be thrust into the spotlight once again in a major book by a bestselling author released just weeks before the presidential election.
The former president will face renewed questions over his ties to Jeffrey Epstein, a registered sex offender who was jailed for 13 months in 2008 for soliciting girls for underage prostitution.
The book, to be published on Monday, the day after Hillary Clinton will face off with Donald Trump in the second presidential debate, will address how Epstein flew Clinton around the world on his private jet to speak about his charitable work.
Now that we know the two had a ‘cozy’ relationship, what do we think will happen next? How many names will come out and heads will roll? Will Jeffrey Epstein turn on his friends and rat them out too? Will Bill Clinton go down? Was he involved in any of this? How did Bill and Hillary’s relationship last so long despite the accusations with Bill in the past?

From The Daily Mail:
“The documents that will be unsealed are from a defamation case that was settled after Epstein entered a guilty plea guilty to a single charge of soliciting and procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution.
“Records in the defamation case contained descriptions of sexual abuse by Epstein along with new allegations of sexual abuse by ‘numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.’
“The appeals court found that the judge in the case did seal a number of documents without a justifiable reason when ordering the release.
“Epstein’s lawyers will first get a chance to appeal, and after those legal proceedings play out the documents will start being prepared by the court for release.
“The plea deal Epstein agreed to back in 2008 saved him from having to register as a sex offender in 31 of 50 states.
Epstein's case is part of a joint FBI – NYPD investigation in New York and is expected to be publicly announced on Monday.

“In a deal unknown to the victim or her lawyer, the minor Epstein admitted to soliciting for prostitution was not the 14-year-old girl who first reported the millionaire money manager, but rather another girl, 16, whose age was left blank on court documents.
“That victim’s age means that Epstein did not have to register as a sex offender in states like New Mexico, where he owns a 7,600-acre property called Zorro Ranch and allows him to be classified as a low-risk offender in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which is currently his primary residence.
“A federal judge ruled earlier this year that then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta violated the rights of Epstein’s alleged victims when they neglected to notify them that they were no longer pursuing federal charges.
“That was another part of the deal, which in addition to allowing Epstein to have work release and live in a low-security facility also agreed to drop a federal probe into the millionaire moneyman.
“Now Acosta – who is the current Secretary of Labor and had been mentioned as a possible candidate for attorney general – and others are again coming under fire for allegedly catering to the man who donated millions to the Clintons and hosted President Trump at his Manhattan townhouse while keeping his victims in the dark.
“‘They were cutting a plea deal. It wasn’t a prosecution,’ said attorney Spencer Kuvin, who represented the 14-year-old girl who alerted police.
“‘They had a grab bag of 40 girls to choose from.’
“He then revealed that he and his client believed they had been the victim referenced in the plea deal.
“‘It’s unbelievably upsetting,’ said Kuvin.
“‘The rug has been swiped out from under the one girl who was brave enough to come forward and break this thing.’
Don’t let the mainstream media try to tie Donald Trump to Jeffrey Epstein.
Trump had Epstein barred from his club after Epstein propositioned the underage daughter of a member.

“Questions about Epstein’s deal started to surface after a series of lawsuits were filed by two of his alleged victims.
“The women, identified as Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2, claim in court papers that they were unaware of the secret deal being made between the defense team and prosecutors back in 2007 that guaranteed federal charges would not be brought against Epstein, 63, which could have resulted in a lengthy prison sentence for the millionaire.
“They filed their lawsuit a few months after Epstein received his lenient sentence in 2008, with their lawyers saying the U.S. Attorney’s Office violated the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act by not speaking with Epstein’s victims about the details of his plea agreement.
“The two victims who filed the suit were 13 and 14 at the time of the abuse.
“This filing contained more than 140 exhibits including emails between Epstein’s defense team, the U.S. Attorney’s office, and former State Attorney Barry Krischer, which lawyers believe clearly show that victims were being left in the dark.
“Bradley Edwards and Paul Cassell, who filed on behalf of the women, previously stated that they hoped U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra would not force the case to go to trial but rather given what they believe is overwhelming evidence rule in the favor of the two victims.
“‘There is good reason to believe that if the prosecutors had exposed their dealings to scrutiny by Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2 and other victims, they would not have reached such a sweetheart plea deal,’ the motion reads.
“‘Despite the fact that this case has been in litigation for more than seven years, spanning several hundred pleadings, the government does not write even a single sentence explaining why it entered into an NPA (non-prosecution agreement) with a sex offender who had committed hundreds of federal sex offenses against young girls.’
“The motion also says that the deal Epstein received is ‘one of the most extraordinarily lenient plea arrangements in American history’.
“Epstein settled both of these suits back in December before the victims would be able to testify in court.
“Police in Palm Beach turned over the information they had gathered on Epstein’s victims to federal authorities in November 2006 after investigating the case for roughly a year following an initial call in March 2005 from a woman who claimed her daughter, 14, had been paid $300 to give Epstein a massage in just her underwear.
“Local authorities also filed a probable cause affidavit in May 2006 saying they believed there was enough evidence to charge Epstein with four counts of unlawful sex with minors and one count of molestation.
“In the end, these charges were taken to a grand jury despite the recommendation of police, who came back with just one charge against Epstein – felony solicitation of prostitution.
“On June 30, 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to a single state charge of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, and ultimately served just 13 months of his 18-month sentence.
“That time was served not in a prison, but rather the Palm Beach Stockade, which is a local detention center.
“Epstein was also allowed to leave six days a week to go work out of his West Palm Beach office during his time behind bars.
“After his release, he did have to register as a sex offender.”
“The new indictment—which, according to two sources, will be unsealed Monday in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach. Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.”
More from Fox News on Epstein’s flights:
“He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on “Orgy Island,” an estate on Epstein’s 72-acre island, called Little St. James, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“Virginia Roberts, 32, who claims she was pimped out by Epstein at age 15, has previously claimed she saw Clinton at Epstein’s getaway in 2002, but logs do not show Clinton aboard any flights to St. Thomas, the nearest airport capable of accommodating Epstein’s plane. They do show Clinton flying aboard Epstein’s plane to such destinations as Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, China, Brunei, London, New York, the Azores, Belgium, Norway, Russia, and Africa.”
