Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious convicted pedophile who received a light sentence due to his connecting with the rich and powerful, has been arrested by the FBI for additional crimes. The Daily Caller reports:
The indictment against Jeffrey Epstein for allegedly trafficking underage girls has renewed attention on the billionaire sex offender’s circle of rich and powerful friends.
Epstein’s Rolodex, which was leaked in 2011, was also filled with the names of easily recognizable politicians and celebrities, including actors Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Dustin Hoffman, and Elizabeth Hurley. Mick Jagger and Rupert Murdoch are also listed in the book, as are politicians Tony Blair, Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Cuomo, and Ted Kennedy.
Epstein’s legal problems initially did not block his access to his high-profile friends.
The Daily Beast reported in 2011 that Epstein hosted George Stephanopoulos, Katie Couric, Chelsea Handler, Woody Allen and other celebrities at a dinner at his New York City townhouse in December 2010, more than a year after Epstein has served 13 months in jail for soliciting prostitution from a minor.
Epstein is seen as a nexus for child trafficking among the rich and powerful. Will he reach a plea deal and expose other the rich and powerful perverts?
