Senate Investigating Mueller FBI’s Prosecution Of “Orgy Island Billionaire” Jeffrey Epstein

Via Zerohedge…


Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced New York financier who served 13 months in prison for soliciting an underaged girl for prostitution, has served his time, and despite all of the negative press surrounding his “Lolita Express” and the many celebrities and politicians – including former President Bill Clinton and disgraced actor Kevin Spacey – who have reportedly traveled to his “orgy island”, he will likely live out his life as a free man (unless new offenses are committed).

But thanks to a series published by the Miami Herald last year that delved into how prosecutors worked with powerful defense attorneys to ensure Epstein received such a lenient sentence. The expose shed a light on the role played by Alex Acosta, who went on to become Trump’s Secretary of Labour, in handing down the light sentence. Acosta was the US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida at the time Epstein’s sentence was handed down.

Now, thanks to those stories, the DOJ has reportedly opened an investigation into the conduct of DOJ attorneys in the case, and whether they committed “professional misconduct” in their working relationship with Epstein’s attorneys.

The probe was opened in response to a request lodged by Sen. Ben Sasse, a a Nebraska Republican and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who raised questions about the case after reading the Herald’s stories about how Acosta and other DOJ attorneys worked with defense attorneys to cut a lenient plea deal for Epstein back in 2008, per the Herald.

At the time, the FBI was run by Robert Mueller.

Though the reasons for the lenient deal could be rooted in the natural advantages of the wealthy, one Twitter user who did a deep dive into a cache of redacted FBI Vault documents released last year raised the possibility that Epstein could have been an informant for the FBI, providing information on executives from failed investment bank Bear Stearns in exchange for the lenient sentence (though there’s nothing in his guilty plea that suggested he provided information).

To be sure, records show that Epstein passed a polygraph test showing that he didn’t know any of the girls he solicited were under the age of 18 at the time. Also, the case has taken on renewed importance since opposition research shops tried to link President Trump to Epstein during the campaign.

While that hasn’t been conclusively proven, it could have been part of a separate agreement that has yet to be disclosed.

Whenever the Deep State wants to cover up it’s criminal activity or soft pededal it they call on “The Mule” Robert S. Muller III. Muller cut his eye teeth during the CIA’s Infamous Operation Phonenix in Vietnam. During the BCCI and Iran Contra scandals, Muller saw to it that the criminals got off completely or with a slap on the wrist. Source: The book “The Mule”. This also is what happened in the Epstien case. But much worse, is the fact that Muller was Director of FBI during and after the 9/11 attacks and was instrumental in covering up evidence… Read more »

Mueller, head of the FBI and once the Gestapo, was point man for the WTC demolition. What a nation that not only lets him walk alive, but free and in charge of an important prosecution.
The USA has lost all right and reason to exist.

We should form victims groups and start shooting these people. They are clearly the pimps of the Ruling Class. They are immune from prosecution but it is our children they violate.
What the fuck is the matter with us? Lead in the pipes? Fluoride in the water. The face of Suckerberg and Bezos?
We are the living dead.
