Dunno, but this is starting to show all qualities of a huge scandal, involving the rich, the famous and their politicians. Look at the mounting case Electro.
This is the Miami Herald article from last November, which started it all again. It explained how a rich and powerful hedge fund manager got away with a very lenient sentence for abusing tens or hundreds of young girls, many of them teenagers and some as young as 13 or 14 years old.
Last weekend, Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and the news cycle started spinning big time. New charges of sex trafficking were filed this week and he is looking at 45 years to life in prison. The potential fallout however is huge given his vast network of rich and powerful friends, which includes the Tango Rapist, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Alexander Acosta, Alan Dershovitz, Woody Allen, Prince Andrew of the UK, Kenneth Starr, Lawrence Summers, Tom Barrack and Bill Barr. Some juicy stories making their rounds, obviously strongly denied by the accused: allegations against Trump of raping a 13-year old girl, similar accusations against Dershowitz and Epstein himself. While some of those allegations may be fishy (maybe not?), there are better researched and validated accounts of Epstein/Trump comradery, like a party with 28 young girls and only two male guests (Epstein and Trump). A summary of confirmed and unconfirmed Epstein/Trump stories here.
The fallout is just starting, today Trump's Labour secretary Alexander Acosta resigned because of his role in the fishy 2008 deal which kept Epstein out of prison. Only hours ago, NY investigators have said that Epstein has been recently paying large amounts of money to persons identified as possible co-conspirators, accusing him of witness tampering. And then, there is this New York Magazine story speculating that Epstein never was a hedge fund manager, but ran a clever sex trafficking ring for the rich and famous, blackmailing them to invest large amounts of money in his so-called hedge fund allowing him to charge large fees on those investments.
I am sure this is only the beginning of a huge scandal, which has the potential to shake up parts of the US establishment. Once the first bird starts singing, it will all come undone.
