Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy convicted sex offender facing new child trafficking charges, was denied bail and will remain behind bars until his trial.
Epstein was denied bail today by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in a New York court. The prosecution cited Epstein’s phony passport and love of jet-setting around the globe while persuading the judge to make his decision.
“I doubt that any bail package can overcome danger to the community,” U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said Thursday.
The defense had argued he should be allowed to await trial under house arrest with electronic monitoring at his $77 million Manhattan mansion. They said he wouldn’t run and was willing to pledge a fortune of at least $559 million as collateral.
A Saudi Arabian passport with his face paired with an assumed name was discovered in Epstein’s possession when federal authorities raided his New York mansion.
Federal investigators say they have found a fake Saudi Arabian passport with an alias alongside mounds of cash in convicted sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein’s New York City mansion, as their case goes stronger against the Democratic Party-connected predator.
Epstein allegedly obtained the passport in the 1980s, and it had only recently expired before it was found by the feds. It has been widely speculated that Epstein’s connections shielded him from justice for all these years despite widespread knowledge of his illicit activities, and the Saudi passport may be the key to finally getting some real answers about who protected Epstein.
The prosecution claimed this fake passport clearly made Epstein a flight risk, as he is apparently able to obtain fraudulent documents that could allow him to escape the reach of the federal government, even if released on house arrest.
Epstein had previously offered his mansion and several of his family’s assets in an attempt to be released on house arrest.
Prosecution also claimed the case against Epstein is “getting stronger every single day” as more evidence against Epstein is gathered and more victims come forward.
Epstein is accused of sexually abusing and trafficking multiple teenage girls in the late 1990s and early 2000s. President Bill Clinton famously flew on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed The Lolita Express, at least 26 times.
This is a breaking story. Big League Politics will continue to provide updates regarding this story and the criminal case against Epstein.
REPORT: Epstein Associate Ghislane Maxwell Possesses “Stash of Pedophile Sex Tapes”
The tapes reportedly implicate Epstein’s elite network in sex crimes.
The Daily Mail is reporting that longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell possesses a ‘secret stash’ of video evidence of sex crimes against minors. The Mail is citing an anonymous longtime ‘former friend’ of Epstein’s so-called madame, who was arrested by the FBI last week as a result of an investigation into her involvement in the now-deceased pedophile billionaire’s sex trafficking and pedophile ring.
Maxwell’s ‘former friend’ is quoted as believing that the longtime Epstein associate will use her video evidence of criminal sex activity to implicate individuals connected to Epstein.
“The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirreled away could end up being her get out of jail card if the authorities are willing to trade. She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers.”
Many have speculated that Maxwell’s arrest could result in new information regarding Epstein’s sophisticated sex trafficking ring. The New York financier was known for his connections to the political and social elite of the United States before and after his 2008 conviction for procuring a minor for prostitution, and Epstein died under highly questionable circumstances at a New York jail before he could ever reveal any information about any criminal accomplices to his sex crimes.
The anonymous Maxwell associate claims that the pedophile billionaire’s madame has access to tapes of child sexual abuse that Epstein personally arranged in order to secure leverage over his wealthy and powerful peers, to be used in blackmail operations in the event he ever faced criminal prosecution or sanction for his activities.
“‘Not only did Epstein like to capture himself with underage girls on camera – he wanted to make sure he had something to hold over the rich and powerful men who took advantage of his sick largesse.
If Ghislaine goes down, she’s going to take the whole damn lot of them with her.”
If the Daily Mail’s source is legit, some of Epstein’s connects in the world of the political and social elite are probably sweating bullets.
