Democrat Virgin Islands Congresswoman Will Give Away Epstein Money After Criticism

Published

on

Virgin Islands Democrat congresswoman Stacey Plaskett said that she will donate twice the amount of campaign contributions that she has received from accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein to women and children’s organizations — after a storm of criticism for her initial unwillingness to do so.

“I am uncomfortable having received money from someone who has been accused of these egregious actions multiple times,” Plaskett stated, according to the New York Post. “I want it to be clear that I in no way support the allegations and have confidence in the Southern District of New York to investigate and prosecute the matter.”

CNBC initially quoted a spokesman for Plaskett as saying “I’m pretty sure she’s not” going to give away her Epstein money.

Plaskett pocketed donations from Epstein in 2016 and 2018, well after Epstein was a well-known pedophile.

Plaskett is not the only figure on the Left who did not seem to mind Epstein’s disgusting record.

Jeffrey Epstein still counted ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and Katie Couric as social friends after his first release from prison, when he served 13 months in a country-club county jail. Epstein now faces child trafficking charges, with an indictment from the Southern District of New York that references three minor victims.

Vanity Fair previously reported:

“Who among these visitors knew what about Epstein’s sexual subjugation of high-school girls? Let me avoid threats from lawyers and just say that, regardless of the answer, Epstein lost fewer friends than you’d think, not to mention very little of his fortune. In 2010, having long since served his time, Epstein was hosting Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, and Woody Allen for dinner. “I plead guilty to making a deal that was favorable to my client,” said Dershowitz in 2015. “That’s my job.” Or, as Ken Starr offered in the same year, “I was very happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”

Vanity Fair passage ends

Three minor victims and three employees are named in the child trafficking indictment against Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire pedophile and Bill Clinton friend who is facing trial in the Southern District of New York.

The Miami Herald reports that new victims and witnesses came forward to help the FBI-NYPD.

“Sources told the Herald that the indictment includes new victims and witnesses who spoke to authorities in New York over the past several months,” reported the Miami Herald, which successfully sued to unseal some records pertaining to an Epstein-related defamation case days ago.

Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for sex trafficking minors, marking another major step forward in law enforcement’s recent push to bust elite pedophile rings. (READ: NXIVM Cult’s Connections To Hillary, Schumer, and Gillibrand).

The Daily Beast reports: Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources. The arrest, by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida…

Several employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein’s abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by two officials.

Daily Beast passage ends

In 2015, I exclusively reported that Jeffrey Epstein pleaded the Fifth when asked about his friendship with Bill Clinton.

Trump Pardons 9/11 Hero & Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

Published

on

On February 18, 2020, President Donald Trump announced the pardon of Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD commissioner who spent time in prison for tax fraud and lying to the government.

This news came hours after Trump pardoned Edward DeBartolo Jr., the former San Francisco 49ers owner was convicted in a gambling fraud scandal. DeBartolo Jr. built one of the most successful franchises in NFL history.

Kerik was nominated to be the nation’s head of homeland security on one occasion and spent three years in prison before being released in 2013.

He was viewed as a hero for leading the NYPD during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, Kerik’s image took a hit when he became the first New York City police commissioner to be imprisoned for federal crimes.

His legal problems spilled over and muddied the political aspirations of other elected officials, such as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

While leaving the White House Tuesday afternoon, Trump said he “pardoned” Kerik “a man who had many recommendations from a lot of good people.”

After being pardoned, Kerik went on Twitter to thank the president writing that “there are no words to express my appreciation and gratitude to President Trump. He continued by saying that “with the exception of the birth of my children, today is one of the greatest days in my life.”

Kerik proceed to describe his prison experience as “dying with your eyes open,’ citing the “collateral consequences and the permanent loss of many of your civil and constitutional rights are personally devastating.”

Kerik volunteered to be Giuliani’s chauffeur and provided security during his first unsuccessful run for mayor. Once he secured the mayor’s office in 1993, Giuliani promoted Kerik, a high school dropout, to the highest echelons of New York City government.

The mayor eventually promoted his former bodyguard as the city’s 40th police commissioner in 2001.

Kerik almost became President George Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary in 2004, but he was quickly dropped as a nominee.

Two days afterwards, The Daily News reported that Larry Ray, who had been the best man at Kerik’s wedding, had presented evidence of Kerik failing to report thousands of dollars in gifts he’d received while he was an employee of New York City.
