Is this what the histrionics are about? Is he trying to to take the focus off all the fresh Epstein buzz that is rising out of the Netflix documentary: Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich? Does Trump feel uncomfortable about the whole world talking about his connections to Epstein? He should. He really should.
In 2007, Epstein made a plea deal that turned a probable life sentence in federal prison into a mere 13 months in county jail. That is quite the deal for someone who was accused trafficking minor girls. What could Epstein possibly provide the FBI in return for a non-prosecution agreement and a reduced sentence that allowed 6 days per week of work-release? The FBI must have been pretty motivated.
Epstein did his time and was released, but his problems did not end. Two further cases were brought against him. The first a civil lawsuit brought against him by one of his victims, and:
A second lawsuit, known as the federal Crime Victims’ Rights suit, is still pending in South Florida after a decade of legal jousting. It seeks to invalidate the non-prosecution agreement in hopes of sending Epstein to federal prison. Wild, who has never spoken publicly until now, is Jane Doe No. 1 in “Jane Doe No. 1 and Jane Doe No. 2 vs. the United States of America,” a federal lawsuit that alleges Epstein’s federal non-prosecution agreement was illegal.Miami Herald
The original non-prosecution agreement had always been controversial. It included immunity for four accomplices and “any potential co-conspirators”. Seriously? Why? Even worse, the details of the agreement were to be kept from the victims. Once a judge approved the deal, the contents were sealed.
Alexander Acosta, the US attorney who negotiated the deal later became a member of the Trump Administration as the Secretary of Labor. When the new lawsuits emerged, Acosta resigned from his cabinet position.
The unanswered question in all of this is why such a controversial non-prosecution agreement was made. We might never know. The best info that we have is that Epstein was buddies with people like Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and Donald Trump.
Ah yes. Donald Trump. The man of the hour. Of every hour of every day for the past three and a half years. Will we ever be done with his constant intrusion into our lives? He is sooo exhausting. He also has a shady past relationship with Epstein.
The Trumps and the Epsteins look pretty cozy. Melania, especially, seems to be preferring Epstein. Did she learn that pose in modeling school? Is Ghislaine Maxwell sizing Melania up as a possible recruit? This isn’t a joke. There is something wrong with these people.
“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”Vox
Who says stuff like that? It is one thing to appreciate that someone likes beautiful women, but who points out that those women are “on the younger side”. It gives the impression that Trump admired Epstein’s ability to be with young women. That is not normal behavior.
The Washington Post interviewed Epstein’s brother who had a fair amount to say about the relationship between Trump and his brother:
Epstein’s brother, Mark, who said Trump flew on Epstein’s private plane “numerous times,” though Mark was only present for one of those flights. (Unsealed flight logs show Trump was on Epstein’s plane in 1997, and it’s been previously reported that Epstein once flew on Trump’s private plane.) Mark told the paper: “They were good friends. I know [Trump] is trying to distance himself, but they were.” Trump’s phone number, as well as numbers for his wife, Melania, and others members of his inner circle were found in Epstein’s little black book of contacts. Message pads found at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion showed that Trump called Epstein at least twice in November 2004.Elle
Trump does this a lot. He routinely Tweets conspiracy theories about his perceived enemies whenever he needs to deflect attention from himself. Like when he said that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination of JFK, or conspiracies about Hilary’s emails, or Obamagate, or that Joe Scarborough had murdered an aide. It is all for the purpose of deflection and it is getting easier to see what information Trump is most afraid of.
