Why Jeffrey Epstein Arrested | Jeffrey Epstein’s Victims:
Epstein was arrested in the New York area and charged with abusive mistreatment underage girls relating to incidents from the early 2000s. Officials said Epstein is alleged of paying underage girls for massages and molesting them at his homes in Florida and New York.
A team of federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, including some in the public corruption unit, have been assigned to the charge.
The daughter of former FBI director James Comey named Maurene Comey, is one of the prosecutors.
Authorities informs more than 40 underage girls were brought into Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion for what turned into abusive and mistreatment encounters after female fixers looked for suitable girls locally and in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world. Some girls were even allegedly brought to Epstein’s homes in New York City, New Mexico and a private Caribbean island, as per court documents.
Miami Herald reported on the heels of her groundbreaking investigative series “Perversion of Justice,” which renewed national attention to the Epstein case by highlighting his ties to the nation’s elite.
“Epstein used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him,” U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra wrote in a passionate opinion at the time. “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own physical gratification, but also for the physical gratification of others.”
“On that score, it is worth clarifying here the breadth of the court’s unsealing order: it unseals nearly 2000 pages of material,” U.S. Circuit Judge Rosemary Pooler arguing that all of the files should have been handled by the trial judge, emphasized. “The task of identifying and making specific redactions in such a substantial volume is perilous; the consequences of even a seemingly minor error may be grave and are irrevocable.”

This is #TeamPatriot test time. Country over party.
Jeffrey Epstein is not going to be pretty for either party, or for the Special Relationship.
He had links to Trump. But also to Bill Clinton, and to Prince Andrew. That is the ugly truth. pic.twitter.com/5hRjSttoiN
