The story of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has the potential to forever change the political landscape of the United States…and sooner, rather than later.
The well-connected hedge fund manager and wealth financier has friends and acquaintances from all corners of the American experience, as well as a number of international cohorts as well. The man is known to peddle in influence, (in addition to his vast stacks of cash), and his latest arrest has a distinct air of finality to it. Epstein has been getting away with this behavior for decades, and you could see on the faces fo the SDNY authorities during their Monday press conference that they were not going to let him get off easy again.
Authorities in the case focused their public commentary on Epstein’s $77 million mansion in New York City and his West Palm Beach, Florida home, drawing the ire of those who have been following the saga. The concerned masses are intent on having Epstein’s private island examined as well.
Federal authorities are apparently hellbent on that aspect of the investigation as well.
U.S. prosecutors on Monday encouraged anyone with information about Epstein’s conduct to come forward, not just potential victims. To the socialites, celebrities and politicians who attended lavish parties at Epstein’s homes in Manhattan or Palm Beach in the early 2000s — or hitched rides on his private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express” by the tabloids — the request carried a clear message: Come talk to us before we seek you out.
“You would much rather be visiting the Department of Justice and engaging a conversation about what you saw rather than making the DoJ find you,” said Jacob Frenkel, a former federal prosecutor now at Dickinson-Wright. “There’s a much greater potential for influencing the parameters of an interview and the scope of cooperation by going in voluntarily than becoming a compulsory guest” of the government, he said.
And just what sort of people are listed in Epstein’s records?
The names include well known performers, including Ralph Fiennes, Alec Baldwin, David Blaine, Jimmy Buffett and Courtney Love; media figures including Charlie Rose, Mike Wallace and Barbara Walters; former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, former British prime minister Tony Blair, industrialist David Koch and the late Salomon Brothers chief executive officer John Gutfreund and his wife, Susan.
Authorities have intimated that the high profile persons named in Epstein’s “little black book” and the flight logs of the “Lolita Express” could provide an avenue for the investigation to grow in order of magnitude in the coming weeks.
