While the media has tried to make the pass that Jeffrey Epstein got for untold years of molestation and abuse a primarily federal matter, because they were using it go after a Trump appointee, it was actually a dirty deal cooked up in Florida, with secondary passes in New York and New Mexico.
All Democrat dirty deals.
The Feds had limited options. That said, my solution to everything from Spygate to Epstein, has been to put the full information out there. But instead of something as simple as that, no side seriously tries to put everything out there and instead we get layers of conspiracy theories and information operations. That certainly serves various political agendas, but not the truth.
A woman whose allegations of childhood sex abuse in New York were central to last year’s indictment of Jeffrey Epstein was questioned by the FBI and subpoenaed for testimony by federal prosecutors in Florida more than a decade ago in connection with the first federal investigation into Epstein’s alleged child sex trafficking, according to court documents and multiple sources familiar with the events.
“I certainly think with the FBI’s capabilities, even back then, that they could have unraveled the entire network from New York to Paris to New Mexico,” said Spencer Kuvin, a West Palm Beach attorney who represented three of Epstein’s alleged victims during the original federal investigation in Florida. “The potential was always there. [The government] shut this thing down and pled this thing out before going through and talking to probably more than half of the women that were involved in this whole thing. Had they conducted a full investigation and taken their time, this would’ve been a whole different story.”
Marie Villafaña, the former Florida federal prosecutor who led the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation of Epstein and prepared a draft 53-page indictment against him, is said to be “heartbroken” over the outcome of the initial investigation, according to sources familiar with the investigation. She also declined to comment but her attorney, Ty Kelly, issued this statement on her behalf.
“Because the Department of Justice has declined to waive privilege over the Epstein matter, Ms. Villafaña is prohibited from discussing this matter and her opinions on the outcome in greater detail,” the statement reads. “If the Department were to waive that privilege, she believes it would provide a fuller and more accurate picture of how she handled this matter and how she advocated for victims at every turn.”
Sunlight is the best disinfectant. There’s no reason to keep the material locked down. Especially after all these years. Except to…
1. Protect the system
2. Maintain ambiguity for political purposes
Maybe it’s time we stopped playing games and started releasing information
