Christine Pelosi, daughter of the House Speaker and Democratic National Committee official, warned party loyalists Saturday evening that the unraveling Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal may entrap some pretty powerful politicians, adding that it’s “quite likely that some of our favs are implicated” in the “horrific” sex-trafficking case.
Pelosi’s dire warning to Democrats came on the heels of Epstein’s sudden arrest in New York on Saturday accusing the politically connected billionaire of illicit sex-trafficking dating back to the early 2000s, according to law enforcement officials.
“This Epstein case is horrific, and the young women deserve justice,” Pelosi tweeted. “It is quite likely that some of our favs are implicated, but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats.”
The financier has been accused of paying underage girls for massages and sexually abusing them at his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla., and in New York City.
The feds are also investigating Epstein’s 72-acre private estate on the Virgin Islands, nicknamed “Orgy Island.”
Rumors throughout the last several years have persisted that former President Bill Clinton (a personal friend) may be one of the powerful politicians that daughter Pelosi is warning about, regarding the quasi Epstein sex ring.
Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions. Records showed that President Trump may have also flown on the jet at least once.
However although the President has had pervious dealings with Epstein on a few occasions, it’s worth noting that the President as previously called attention to Clinton’s relationship with Epstein.
In 2015 then businessman Trump appearing on Fox’s Sean Hannity told the conservative host, “Nice guy, uh, got a lot of problems coming up, in my opinion, with the famous island, with Jeffrey Epstein.”
Trump then referencing both Clinton and Epstein by name adds, “A lot of problems.”
However, there is one glaring contradiction to the President’s claim regarding his dislike of Epstein, an article in 2002 appearing within New York Magazine written by the President’s former biographer Tim O’Brien who reposted the article over the weekend.
The President told O’Brien within the decades-old interview, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years, terrific guy. 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.”
However, Trump’s legal team more recently has denied the two were friends. Because of an incident that took place at the President’s Mar-a-Lago estate, in which Trump banned the sexual predator from ever setting foot on his estate again, “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.”
According to court documents filed by Bradley Edwards, the lawyer who has represented several Epstein accusers, however, the President or the management at Mar-a-Lago has not confirmed the lawsuit.
Moreover, the fact that billionaires like Trump and Epstein travel within the same social circles should surprise no one, Democrats might want to avoid another potential witch hunt concerning the current President, while the actual evidence of wrongdoing might be reserved for a former President, namely Bill Clinton. In that recently uncovered “flight logs” showed that the former President flew dozens of times on Epstein’s private jet.
The flight-logs actually contradicts previous statements by Clinton cronies stating that the former President only flew a few times — the flight logs shows that Clinton was a passenger at least 26 times aboard what was commonly referred to as the “Lolita Express.”
Fox News also obtained within the flight-logs detailed information showing that the former President actually ditched his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights to Epstein’s private island paradise.
The sex offender is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.
The well-connected billionaire was able to work out a secret plea-deal in 2008 which officially ended the federal investigation against him, and no doubt against others. He has served 13-months in jail and must register as a sex offender.
