The Justice Department has been requested to investigate why an attorney claims the FBI “completely failed” to investigate the late billionaire financier and convicted child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
According to the UK Mirror, an attorney representing multiple women sent a letter last week to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz stating that the FBI was aware of allegations against Epstein in the 1990s but failed to take action.
“As counsel to many survivors of the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking conspiracy, we write regarding the failure of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to properly, adequately, or timely investigate the sex trafficking of hundreds of girls and young women,” says the letter from lawyer Jennifer Freeman.
“The FBI utterly failed to investigate serious allegations involving Epstein’s, and perhaps others’, child sex abuse materials (CSAM), significant additional criminality which, until recently, has been disregarded, disrespected, and essentially denied,” it added.
“[I]n August of 1996 one of our clients, Maria Farmer, reported to the FBI that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell had sexually abused her and that the two of them, together with others, were committing multiple, serious, sexual abuse crimes, including hands-on sexual abuse, against minors and vulnerable young women,” the letter continues. “In addition, she reported to the FBI that Epstein, and perhaps others, appeared to be engaged in the production, possession, and distribution of sexually suggestive or exploitative images of children that could constitute CSAM.”
The women have requested that the DOJ investigate the FBI’s management of the case in order to determine why it took so long for legal action to be taken against Epstein.
Epstein is believed to have committed suicide in prison in 2019.
CNN reported a month earlier, in November, that “Epstein’s former pilot testified in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial…that a who’s who of powerful men, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, flew on Epstein’s private plane.”
Visoski stated that he was typically informed in advance when prominent passengers, such as former President Clinton, would be traveling with Epstein. CNN reported that he remembered other prominent passengers on flights, including Prince Andrew, Maine Sen. George Mitchell, Ohio Sen. John Glenn, and actor Kevin Spacey. He also recalled that Epstein flew with the renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman to the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer camp.
In January, Newsweek reported that a BBC documentary aired that month asserted Clinton and Epstein were “like brothers.”
In “Ghislaine, Prince Andrew, and the Pedophile,” which aired in Britain on January 18, socialite Lady Victoria Hervey described Clinton as “very close to Jeffrey”
“Clinton was definitely very close to Jeffrey. I don’t know if you saw the paintings that were in Jeffrey Epstein’s house?” Hervey said in the documentary. “One of them being a portrait of Bill Clinton wearing the dress that Monica Lewinsky wore when they had the affair.”
The continuing narrative of the disgraceful life of the late financier Jeffrey Epstein continued over the weekend in a news report.
According to sources who spoke with The Wall Street Journal, Epstein threatened Bill Gates after learning that the Microsoft co-founder had an affair with a Russian bridge player during his marriage to Melinda Gates.
Around 2010, the co-founder of Microsoft met the woman when she was in her twenties. Epstein encountered her again in 2013 and subsequently paid for her to attend a software engineering school.
