  1. The Shadow knows says:

    Former Palm Beach police chief Michael Reiter told NBC News “Dateline” that Jeffrey Epstein was likely tipped off by an insider every time his investigation got close to catching the financier. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/ex-florida-police-chief-epstein-case-worst-failure-criminal-justice-n1057226 According to the Reiter, a half-year into the investigation Epstein appeared to know about details of the probe that had never been made public.
    “We believe the content of our probable cause affidavit … ended up with the defense attorneys, because minute details nobody else knew that was in those documents were being refuted,” he said.

  2. Puzzling Evidence says:

    (Bill Palmer, July 2, 2020): “Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested today and hit with half a dozen charges in relation to Epstein’s rape of underage girls, meaning today is a good day for justice, and a bad day for Maxwell. As it turns out, today is also a bad day for at least one public official.
    Former SDNY employee and current CNN legal analyst Elie Honig has pointed out that the SDNY Public Corruption Unit doesn’t take up these kinds of sex trafficking cases “unless there is some potential angle against a public official.” This means someone in high office is a suspect or target in the Epstein-Maxwell crime spree.
    Former FBI Assistant Director and current NBC News legal analyst Frank Figliuzzi responded to Honig and stated his expectation that the public official in question is former Trump Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, the former prosecutor who helped let Epstein off the hook years ago, and who may have obstructed justice in the process.
    Of course there is also the possibility that the “public official” in question is Donald Trump himself. He had a suspicious decades-long relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, which became even more suspicious when Epstein died while in the custody of Trump’s Department of Justice.” https://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/sdny-public-corruption-unit-is-handling-the-ghislaine-maxwell-case/30253/

    • Plot thickens says:

      “In their pursuit of Ghislaine Maxwell for what they say is her role in Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring, federal prosecutors claim to have unearthed a series of unusual financial transactions involving the two that add a new layer to the mysterious financial complexities underpinning the larger Epstein saga.
      The financial relationship between Epstein, the late multimillionaire whose sources of wealth remain largely murky, and Maxwell, the British socialite whose newspaper tycoon father died just before being implicated in a massive pension fraud scandal, has long been difficult to decipher.
      … At the time of her arrest Thursday, she was found living on a 156-acre Bradford, New Hampshire, estate that was acquired for $1.07 million in an all-cash purchase in December 2019 “through a carefully anonymized LLC,” according to court papers and the realty company.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/03/us/ghislaine-maxwell-mysterious-financial-dealings-jeffrey-epstein/index.html
      (NYT June 19/2020) Attorney General William Barr attempted to fire the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, Geoffrey Berman – who among other things was known for his office’s decision last year to bring sex-trafficking charges against Jeffrey Epstein, who had avoided a similar prosecution in Florida in 2008 [ see “Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s account of why he signed off on a secret sex trafficking plea deal involving now-jailed financier Jeffrey Epstein” https://abc3340.com/news/nation-world/acosta-to-take-questions-on-his-handling-of-epstein-case ]
      After Mr. Epstein committed suicide last August, Mr. Berman announced that the inquiry into Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking conspiracy would continue and that his office was committed to standing up for the “brave young women” whom Mr. Epstein had abused.
      The office has been investigating several of Mr. Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators, and it has been locked in a public dispute with Prince Andrew of Britain about what Mr. Berman has depicted as the prince’s refusal to assist the investigation.”

  3. Ok then... says:

    Fox News said on Monday that it “mistakenly” cropped President Trump out of a photograph that featured the accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/06/media/fox-news-trump-crop-epstein-maxwell/index.html “On Sunday, July 5, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during Fox News Channel’s ‘America’s News HQ’ mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside then Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell,” a spokesperson for the network said.
    The Fox News spokesperson added, “We regret the error.”

    “New Jersey Federal Judge Esther Salas’ Husband, Son Shot by Man in FedEx Uniform” https://heavy.com/news/2020/07/new-jersey-federal-judge-husband-son-shot/
    “…The judge was recently assigned a case with a Jeffrey Epstein link.
    According to Bloomberg, [ https://news.bloomberglaw.com/securities-law/deutsche-bank-investors-sue-over-epstein-ties-stock-drops ] Deutsche Bank AG is being accused of misleading investors “about anti-money-laundering deficiencies,” including not properly monitoring high-risk customers, among them the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting sex offense charges. Epstein’s ties to high-profile figures like Prince Andrew and the manner in which he died have caused some to question whether his death was murder instead of suicide. Authorities have given no indication that the motive for the Anderl shootings is tied into any of the judge’s cases, however.
    The case was filed “on July 15, 2020, and has been assigned to Judge Esther Salas,” according to Globe News Wire. Bloomberg Law also reported that the case was assigned to Judge Salas. http://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2020/07/16/2063666/0/en/DEUTSCHE-BANK-DEADLINE-ALERT-Faruqi-Faruqi-LLP-Encourages-Investors-Who-Suffered-Losses-Exceeding-250-000-In-Deutsche-Bank-Aktiengesellschaft-To-Contact-The-Firm.html ]

  5. A wink is as good as a nod says:

    “President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wishes Ghislaine Maxwell “well,” as she faces charges for recruiting, grooming and ultimately sexually abusing minors as young as 14 as Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged accomplice.
    “I just wish her well, frankly,” Trump said during a White House press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic.
    Trump acknowledged that he has met Maxwell “numerous times” over the years, but said he hasn’t been following her case.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/21/politics/donald-trump-ghislaine-maxwell-i-wish-her-well/index.html

  6. Perversion of Justice says:

    New charges related to multi-millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein could be in the works as a grand jury investigation that ensnared him and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell remains active, according to court papers filed Friday.
    Federal prosecutors in Maxwell’s criminal case revealed the ongoing investigation in a letter urging a judge to block her from filing newly obtained information in civil cases against her.
    The documents, which Maxwell’s attorneys have called “critical new information,” could jeopardize their ongoing investigation if it is allowed to be filed in the civil cases. https://nypost.com/2020/08/21/new-charges-may-be-looming-in-jeffrey-epstein-investigation/

    “Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell, the jailed alleged madam to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, have asked an appellate court to keep sealed a controversial deposition of hers but failed in a much-anticipated filing to present new information they had learned in a separate criminal case that they said would bolster their argument for keeping the material under wraps.
    The new filing from Maxwell hit the court docket Thursday night, hours before a deadline imposed by the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York. It is hearing her appeal of an order by U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska to unseal most documents in a civil lawsuit settled in 2017 between Maxwell and Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
    Maxwell contends the 413-page deposition, taken in 2016, was given with the expectation that it would not be used against her in other proceedings. In the new appeal filing, her lawyers warned that allowing the deposition into the public realm, especially as she faces criminal prosecution, would have a chilling effect on future witnesses.” https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article245131845.html

    “Ghislaine Maxwell loses fight to keep her Jeffrey Epstein testimony sealed” (Miami Herald 10/19/20) https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article246561388.html
    “A federal court has cleared the path to unseal the transcript of Ghislaine Maxwell’s deposition from 2016, a lengthy document that may shed light on the sex trafficking operation she allegedly ran with the late Jeffrey Epstein that catered to rich and powerful men.
    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit affirmed a federal judge’s ruling from July, saying the lower court was correct to reject “meritless arguments” from Maxwell, who is accused of procuring young girls for Epstein.” (NPR 10/20/20) https://www.npr.org/2020/10/20/925739704/jeffrey-epstein-update-court-says-ghislaine-maxwells-deposition-can-t-remain-sec

  8. Shadow of a doubt says:

    “Leon Black unexpectedly quits Apollo investment firm after Epstein inquiry : Review showed that former Apollo chief paid Epstein $148m for his financial advising services and donated $10m to his charity” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/22/leon-black-quits-apollo-jeffrey-epstein-ties-inquiry
    Epstein killed himself in prison in 2019 and those who were close to him are still experiencing deep fallouts because of their ties. Leslie Wexner, who once considered Epstein his personal money adviser, stepped down as chief executive of L Brands, parent company of Victoria’s Secret, after scrutiny of his relationship with Epstein. Last week, Wexner announced he will be leaving the L Brands board. https://www.wsj.com/articles/leslie-wexner-to-leave-board-of-l-brands-11616072589

  9. Update says:

    Ghislaine Maxwell faces two new charges, sex trafficking conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minornew charges as US prosecutors expand criminal case. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/mar/29/ghislaine-maxwell-new-charges-jeffrey-epstein
    This indictment also identified a new accuser in the case, referred to as “minor victim-4” in court papers, and expanded the timeframe of Maxwell’s alleged participation in Epstein’s abuse by seven years – from 1994 to 2004, rather than from 1994 to 1997. Maxwell now faces a total of eight counts.

    • Update says:

      “Mysterious deed claims new ownership of Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico ranch” https://www.krqe.com/news/investigations/deed-claims-new-ownership-of-jeffrey-epsteins-new-mexico-ranch/
      “…KRQE News 13 reached out to First Judicial District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies, to find out what, if any, recourse there is against someone who files a fraudulent deed. “There is absolutely recourse for filing a fraudulent deed,” said Carmack-Altwies.
      The District Attorney explained deeds are filed with the County Clerk’s office, but it’s not the clerk’s job to verify if the document is real. “That was really supposed to be the notary’s job,” explained Carmack-Altwies.”

  10. Plain Jane says:

    The announcement that Bill and Melinda Gates are getting divorced came as a surprise last week, but she has reportedly been talking to lawyers for at least two years—since around the time her husband’s dealings with Jeffrey Epstein made headlines.
    The report by The Wall Street Journal builds on an exclusive story by The Daily Beast last week that revealed Melinda Gates had deep misgivings about Epstein and warned the Microsoft founder about the pedophile after a meeting in 2013. [see links]
    Bill Gates and Epstein, a fabulously wealthy money manager, had a relationship that stretched back to 2011—after Epstein was investigated for sex trafficking and scored a sweetheart deal with prosecutors that let him avoid a federal trial but forced him to register as a sex offender.
    Gates, 65, reportedly flew on Epstein’s jet, dubbed the Lolita Express, and had numerous meetings. The contact continued even after Melinda, 56, told her husband about her concerns about Epstein.
    Bill Gates has previously said that he did not have a business relationship or friendship with Epstein and called his contact with him “an error in judgment.”
