Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Saturday and will appear in New York court on Monday to be charged with sex trafficking, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
Epstein, who was notorious for claims he ran "Lolita Express" aircraft flights to his allegedly-owned "Orgy Island" had flight logs with names of extremely powerful and well-known people (Including Bill and Hillary Clinton) who allegedly flew there to have child sex.
Epstein, a Hedge-fund bigshot and registered sex offender was arrested in New York on Saturday on charges of sex trafficking dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, a law enforcement source says.
The 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, brought by the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) —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.
Several of the billionaire's employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein's abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by two officials.
Epstein's attorney Martin Weinberg declined to comment when reached on Saturday night. The SDNY also declined to comment.
“It’s been a long time coming—it’s been too long coming,” said attorney David Boies, who represents Epstein accusers Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Sarah Ransome. “It is an important step towards getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.
“We hope that prosecutors will not stop with Mr. Epstein because there were many other people who participated with him and made the sex trafficking possible."
Epstein is to be charged in federal court with abusing dozens of underage girls, paying them for massages and then molesting them in his swanky Upper East Side and Palm Beach, Fla. residences, the source said.
Hal Turner Commentary
This story is developing VERY rapidly but there is already incredible push-back by powerful and well-connected people, trying to suppress it. This story marks the beginning of the end of the "Cabal." They cannot escape justice now. Worse . . . they KNOW it.
The folks to be further named in this case are among the richest and most powerful in the world. They will engage in a SCORCHED-EARTH battle to save themselves. As far as some of these folks are concerned, the rest of us can die in a nuclear war, as long as they get to remain free. THAT is the level of power they have, and the level of self-centeredness they live by.
With this arrest, "the Shit has Hit the Fan." Some of the most powerful people in our nation - and in the world -- now face prison. They would rather the rest of us die, than their kingdoms be brought down.
I suspect our President is now in grave danger, although I know of NO CREDIBLE THREAT at this time, and I suspect our nation is in extreme danger as well.
