JEFFREY EPSTEIN ‘BELONGED TO INTELLIGENCE’?
As the explosive Jeffrey Epstein saga recedes from the spotlight, the gap between what one reads in traditional news accounts and what is floating around in the ether grows.
The unspoken question is: Was the extraordinary tolerance accorded to Jeffrey Epstein for years, even after his nefarious activities were known, deliberate?
Specifically, was he allowed to exploit vulnerable minors to enable intelligence agencies to blackmail world leaders for what they did to those girls?
It sounds too far-fetched. But the government’s own top justice figure reportedly alluded to exactly that.
When Alexander Acosta was being considered for the position of secretary of labor, Donald Trump’s transition team was concerned about the fact that Acosta, as US attorney for southern Florida, made the secret non-prosecution plea deal back in 2008 with Epstein’s attorneys. Would it not cause problems at confirmation hearings?
Acosta reportedly explained that he’d cut the deal with Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade: “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.”
The only source for this bewildering, explosive comment is Vicky Ward of the Daily Beast and formerly of Vanity Fair, who said she heard this from a former senior White House official. (Ward has said that she was prepared years ago to write about Epstein’s crimes, but that Vanity Fair declined to publish her report.)
