Trump Was The “Only One” To Help Prosecutor Who Represented Jeffrey Epstein’s Victim
Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Saturday by FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force in New York. Epstein, who has connections to famous, powerful friends including former president Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Les Wexner, Prince Andrew, Kevin Spacey, and President Trump, is expected to appear in federal court on Monday to face charges for allegedly trafficking underaged girls from 2002 to 2005.
Epstein served a jail sentence of 13 months under a non-prosecution agreement, which enabled him to get out on a work-release program. The 2008 plea agreement granted Epstein immunity from more serious charges, and ended the FBI’s investigation into numerous complaints against the billionaire. The plea, which kept 30 victims in the dark about the non-prosecution deal, was signed by U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida Alexander Acosta, who is Trump’s current Labor Secretary. U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra ruled the secret plea agreement unconstitutional in February stating that it violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, which guarantees victims the right to speak with prosecutors.
Of course, the media is having a field day with the latest news about Epstein’s arrest, trying to implicate Trump. But according to flight records from Epstein’s private jet “Lolita Express,” it was Bill Clinton who flew with Epstein over a dozen times and visited Epstein’s island that was notorious for having underage girls.
Florida attorney Bradley Edwards, who represented one of Epstein’s victims, said Trump was the “only person” who came forward to help.
“The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said,’let’s just talk. I’ll give you as much time as you want. I’ll tell you what you need to know,’ and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us, and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009,” said Edwards.
Epstein was banned from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago after he was caught hitting on a young girl.
Christine Pelosi, DNC Executive Committeewoman, tweeted Saturday, “This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may - whether on Republicans or Democrats.” #WeSaidEnough #MeToo

Maurene Comey, Assistant U.S. Attorney in New York state, is one of the prosecutors on the Epstein case. She also happens to be the former FBI Director James Comey’s daughter.
Epstein, who is currently being detained in the same prison where Mexican drug lord El Chapo is an inmate, could face up to 45 years if convicted.
These next few weeks will be very interesting to watch as the story unfolds.
