Jeffrey Epstein Faces Child Trafficking Probe

The Daily Beast reports that the U.S. Justice Department is investigating hedge-fund manager Jeffrey Epstein for child trafficking.

Last week Epstein, whose net worth is estimated at $2 billion, completed his “sentence” of one-year house arrest in Palm Beach for soliciting prostitution with a minor. But it appears his problems may not be over. Now The Daily Beast has learned that:

• Federal investigators continue to investigate Epstein’s activities, to see whether there is evidence of child trafficking—a far more serious charge than the two in his non-prosecution agreement, the arrangement between Epstein and the Department of Justice allowing him to plead guilty to lower-level state crimes. Trafficking can carry a 20-year sentence.

• The FBI is also investigating Epstein’s friend Jean Luc Brunel, whose MC2 modeling agency appears to have been a source of girls from overseas who ended up on Epstein’s private jets.

Speaking of private jets. Underage girls weren’t the only lucky passengers flying on Epstein’s planes (“Victims alleged that Epstein molested underage girls from South America, Europe, and the former Soviet republics, including three 12-year-old girls brought over from France as a birthday gift“). Former President Bill Clinton; Britain’s Prince Andrew; former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson; and former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers are also part of the list.

  1. This Epstein creep was an investor/partner in Dan Zwirn's hedge fund D.B. Zwirn Special Opportunities Fund, Ltd. when they were approved for an FCC license. Epstein is a felon sex offender and Zwirn is under investigation by the SEC for fraud and the FCC greenlights them for a license without having full ownership disclosure as required by the commonn folks that don't have millions to throw at attorneys.

  2. Oh come on. Give me a break! Aren’t there far more important things to get riled up over than some billionaire paying for escorts who openly lied about their age??? What about the millions of people who are dying in Darfur? The lack of access that 1/6th of the world’s population has to potable water in the world? Rampant disease and malnutrition effecting an enormous majority of the population, and the list goes on and on. Out of all the innumerable injustices of humanity (collectively and individually), and you pick your greatest ire on this one???? Where is your sense of proportion? There are far worse people out there, who really are effective at the wholesale slaughter of millions of innocent people…go write about them. Jeffrey Epstein is someone who has greatly supported fundamental scientific and medical research, which will not only improve millions of lives, but also save them too. Just look at what some famous scientists have said about his philanthropy in those areas, and don’t be so one-sided: http: http://www.jeffreyepsteinscience.com. I read this post, and I am one of the people he has generously helped in my research, and he has not at all influenced me to write this. His personal and private sexual needs are really are none of anyone’s business
