On Saturday evening, Jeffery Epstein, former hedge fund manager and known lover of tender flesh, was arrested upon his return to the United States from France. American officials were acting on an indictment, sealed at the time it was final, in federal court in Manhattan.
On Monday at nine in the morning eastern time, the fourteen-page indictment was released. In its pages were counts of sexual abuse of minors and child trafficking for sex purposes. The victims were not named, nor were the employees who participated in the scheme, but the indictment itself is graphically detailed so as to leave nothing of what happened to the imagination.
Jeffery Epstein has a thing for teenaged girls, and he ran a service to procure them through seduction and promises of modeling jobs, among other enticements. In addition, young women were paid in exchange for sexual favors.
Jeffrey Epstein has long been the subject of talk regarding human trafficking in the sex trade. His name has been linked with former president Bill Clinton, and other politicians and celebrities as being the host on his very own island in the Virgin Islands known as “Little St. James.”
Since the arrest, several related stories have surfaced:
Due to the case being prosecuted in the Southern District of New York, CNN published a story speculating that former FBI Director James Comey’s daughter Maurene, an attorney in that office, would be part of the prosecution team. That story sparked outrage among conservatives following the case online.
Also of note, David Boies, an attorney known for defending former presidential candidate and Vice President Al Gore in the 2000 election court case, has surfaced as representing the victims of the abuse.
This indictment and any prosecution to come has the potential to rock the world order and put many public figures under a spotlight. It is definitely one to watch.
