On Sunday, 60 Minutes Australia aired the first major broadcast about Jeffrey Epstein, interviewing the primary people involved in the scandal since he was declared dead last August. It is by far, the best coverage of this story by a Mainstream Media outlet to date.
Many of us are familiar with some of the details of the story but one I’d never heard before I watched this show was how Epstein was relentless in his use of intimidation, entrapment and blackmail tactics against the victims, the prosecutors and law enforcement officers.
Palm Beach attorney, Spencer Coogan who represented three of Epstein’s victims a decade ago says Epstein “had multiple people that were out there, really digging up dirt on not only the victims but also the lawyers, the police, everyone involved.”
Coogan says it was unlike anything he had ever seen before or since. Sadly, he says these intimidation campaigns were very effective. “This is a man who is now dead an they’re still afraid to come forward.”
In 2008, the billionaire pedophile’s lawyers were able to convince the court that these underage girls, with absolutely no criminal history or arrests were “prostitutes”! Here was this pedophile accusing his victims of being prostitutes.
Epstein’s secret plea deal with the State of Florida resulted in:
- His 13-month sentence in a private wing of the local county lock-up, whereas anybody else would have been looking at 45 years of hard time in Federal prison.
- “Work-release”, which enabled him to go to his Palm Beach office to “work” 12 hours every day, seven days a week. (It’s also been reported that two young girls were flown in from New York to service him at his office).
- Full immunity against any other charges for himself and his co-conspirators.
What Epstein did not count on was the anger of his victims. When they found out about the secret deal, they took further legal action, which in turn, led to the federal authorities reopening the case.
What Florida didn’t have the stomach to do, New York did and on July 6th of this year, Jeffrey Epstein was again arrested and charged. This time, he was looking at life behind bars.
His victim, Virginia Roberts-Giuffre describes that day as “Christmas in July.”
60 Minutes Australia reinforces the official line that Jeff Epstein committed suicide, something which not even normies believe, which has become the butt of a burgeoning pop culture meme.
They do, however make a point that nobody else seems to be making in the Mainstream Media: Ghislaine Maxwell is as guilty Epstein and she must be brought to justice.
She and modelling agent, Jean-Luc Brunel have been identified by Epstein’s victims as central to the sex trafficking operation. Both are apparently in hiding.
Virginia’s lawyer, David Boies says, “There will be lawsuits against his estate, there will be lawsuits against the enablers and hopefully, there will be criminal prosecutions that will help vindicate [the victims]…
“All of those avenues remain and we are pursuing those literally as we speak.”
