The wealthy and well-connected financier and registered sex offender was arrested this week in New York on accusations of child sex trafficking.
Epstein allegedly groomed and recruited dozens of underage girls, many of them vulnerable runaways, for sex with him and his friends.
Epstein’s friends and contacts include President Donald Trump, President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and high-powered attorney Alan Dershowitz, among many others.
In 2002, Trump characterized Epstein as a “terrific guy” who enjoyed the company of girls “on the younger side.”.
The only way forward is to demand accountability from Epstein, his co-conspirators, and his enablers, without exception and without excuse.
Or Alex Acosta, Trump’s labor secretary, who is the reason Jeffrey Epstein isn’t sitting in federal prison.
Sadly, in the Trump era of lowered expectations and even more dismal behavior, we can’t even count on that. »
