Bill Clinton is a nervous wreck after this arrest in a giant sex trafficking scandal
Bill Clinton’s scandalous past is never far from the headlines.
And it is never good news for Democrats.
Now, Bill Clinton is a nervous wreck after this arrest in a giant sex trafficking scandal.
Federal agents arrested billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein on charges of luring underage girls to his New York apartment.
Epstein pled guilty to lesser charges in 2008 after he was facing sex trafficking charges for ferrying underage girls on his plane which was dubbed “The Lolita Express.”
Law enforcement officials say that wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested in New York on sex-trafficking charges.
Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday on charges involving allegations that date to the 2000s. Epstein is expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court.
The new arrest come amid renewed scrutiny of that once-secret deal that ended a federal investigation and allowed Epstein to plead guilty to lesser state charges.
Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta confronted a barrage of tough questions on Capitol Hill in April about the 2008 plea agreement he negotiated as U.S. attorney for southern Florida.
This is bad news for Bill Clinton.
Clinton took 26 trips on Epstein’s plane – far more than the 11 he reported – and ditched his secret service detail for five of those flights.
That is shady.
And while Epstein’s indictment did not mention any other individuals other than himself, Epstein will surely look to cut a deal with prosecutors.
In order to win a more lenient sentence, Epstein will have to give up some big names.
