The reach of Jeffrey Epstein’s activities is expanding, and the connections between the trafficker and numerous prominent individuals are growing. Also apparent is the question of why the investigation into Epstein’s activities appears to have stagnated and why more information has not been made public.
Epstein died in prison in 2019, ostensibly by suicide, but there are those who dispute this conclusion. Some believe he was suppressed before these prominent figures could be named and direct connections to Epstein established.
In a letter to the Justice Department, an attorney who represents multiple women asserts that the FBI “utterly failed” to investigate the late billionaire financier and convicted child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, and requests an explanation. Conservative Brief reports that the women represented want to know why it took so long for legal action to be taken against Epstein and have requested that the DOJ investigate the FBI’s management of the case.
According to the Daily Wire, the attorney 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.”
“In 2005, child erotica was found in Epstein’s Palm Beach home. In approximately 2008, law enforcement “prematurely” truncated their investigation of Epstein’s computer hard drives, which had been suspiciously removed from his Palm Beach estate immediately before a police raid,” the letter continued, adding: “In 2019, more child erotica was found displayed in Epstein’s properties, with additional images located in his home safe.”
In the meantime, a December 2021 report highlights Epstein’s relationship with former President Bill Clinton. Multiple eyewitness accounts place the two together and comment on the nature of their relationship.
A month earlier, in November, CNN reported 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 aboard Epstein’s private plane.”
The pilot, Visoski, stated that he was typically informed in advance when prominent passengers, such as former President Clinton, would be flying 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.
