House of Cards is too big and they are all too powerful, slap on the wrists at worst.
There won't be any justice here.

Uhhhhhhhhh someone do something? Jeebus? Superman? Anyone???Donald Trump once hosted a party with a guest list made up of just himself, Jeffrey Epstein, and “28 girls,” according to The New York Times, and ignored an organizer’s warning about Epstein’s conduct. The “calendar girl” event is reported to have taken place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in 1992. George Houraney, who ran American Dream Enterprise, claimed in an interview that he organized the event after a request from Trump. “I arranged to have some contestants fly in,” said Houraney. “At the very first party, I said, ‘Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.’ It was him and Epstein.” Houraney added that he warned Trump about his friend’s conduct, recalling: “I said, ‘Look, Donald, I know Jeff really well, I can’t have him going after younger girls.’... He said, ‘Look I’m putting my name on this. I wouldn’t put my name on it and have a scandal.’” The Times report also claims Epstein has told people since the election that he was the one who introduced the president to his third wife, first lady Melania Trump. The White House didn’t respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
There is a post on reddit that I don’t know how to link, but type in republican sex offenders in google, and a reddit link will pop up. It’s a good list by Poppinkreamsays
28 potential witnesses. I would be scared as hell to talk if I was them, but man it would be glorious.
I mean reading that, it sounds like they made a concerted effort to make sure at least those 28 girls were not "younger girls" but that everyone clearly knew his predilections.. all the way back in 1992.
Okay, so intelligence advised him to "back off" by giving the accused a plea deal that scuppered the FBI's investigation and let Epstein have another decade of unchecked freedom?
Republicans protect their own, no matter the cost, even child rapists.
Democrats are far less willing to harbor that kind of person. Just look at how hard they dropped Anthony Weiner compared to Roy Moore. Mind you Weiner was also a far more prominent Dem than Moore was a member of the GOP. There were ideas about Weiner running for President till he fucked that all up.
Wouldn't be ironic if Epstein was the USA's dude to keep all the influential pedos in check rather than have them go off to Russia for their child-sex and fall under Russian control... and then the USA gets a dude under Russian control as POTUS.
The GOP has been protecting and harboring pedos, rapist and assaulters for a while. They been fight against bans on child marrying adult under the guise of religious freedom forever.
come one, that was a looooong time ago... havent we all done things we later regretted? hes a changed man now.
It's a good question but for context, the plea likely refered to other key members of trafficking ring, namely the women who he probably victimised and then over time turned into recruiters/groomers/facilitators.
Even at the least exciting parsing, it still makes no sense. Why would any of his handlers, who may or may not have been complicit in crimes, need to be granted immunity for him to cop to a solicitation charge, given the mountain of evidence they had at the time?It's a good question but for context, the plea likely refered to other key members of trafficking ring, namely the women who he probably victimised and then over time turned into recruiters/groomers/facilitators.
I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that it was meant to protect other rich predators, that makes no legal sense.
In recent years, Mr. Epstein was a client of Deutsche Bank’s private-banking division, which caters to ultrawealthy individuals and families. The bank provided Mr. Epstein with loans and wealth-management accounts, as well as trading services through its investment banking arm, according to two people familiar with the relationship. At one point, compliance officers at Deutsche Bank raised concerns about transactions by Mr. Epstein’s company, because he posed reputational risk to the bank, the people said.
Deutsche Bank managers overruled their concerns, the people said. They noted that there was nothing illegal about the transactions and that Mr. Epstein was a lucrative client.
Earlier this year, the bank ended its relationship with Mr. Epstein.
Who are we kidding, he could come out on the front lawn of the White house and give a press conference saying the girls loved it, they were well paid and never complained and that the real enemy is Clinton and his supporters would be calling for Clinton's head, the media would react according to its political belief and the very next day he'd do something else crazy and flip the story out of the news cycle.
You know what we gotta do then
It's actually impressive how big of a wall you can build just using already existing court documents and public record. (And it's severely out of date)
Wolff also details a 2004 Palm Beach property deal involving the now disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and the Putin-friendly oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev that, the author writes, earned Trump “$55m without putting up a dime”.
Epstein, he writes, invited Trump to see a $36m Palm Beach mansion he planned to buy. According to Wolff, Trump went behind Epstein’s back to buy the foreclosed property for around $40m, a sum Epstein had reason to believe Trump couldn’t raise in his own right, through an entity called Trump Properties LLC, which was entirely financed by Deutsche Bank.
Epstein, Wolff writes, knew Trump had been loaning out his name in real estate deals for a fee and suspected that in his case Trump was fronting for the property’s real owners. Epstein threatened to expose the deal. As the dispute increased, he found himself under investigation by the Palm Beach police.
Everything connects in some sordid way. Put Epstein in that narrowly focused Trump-Putin wall of shit, and god knows how many more connections of assholes will light up.According to Wolff, Trump made only minor improvements and put the house on the market for $125m. It was purchased for $96m by Rybolovlev, part of a circle of government-aligned industrialists in Russia, thereby earning Trump $55m without risking any of his own money.
Wolff presents two theories as to how the deal worked: first, perhaps “Trump merely earned a fee for hiding the real owner – a shadow owner quite possibly being funneled cash by Rybolovlev for other reasons beyond the value of the house”.
Second, he suggests the real owner of the house and the real buyer were one and the same. “Rybolovlev might have, in effect, paid himself for the house, thereby cleansing the additional $55m for the second purchase of the house.”
“This,” Wolff writes, “was Donald Trump’s world of real estate.”
Wait, wait, wait. Epstein was going to expose Trump and that’s when people finally caught onto Epstein’s shady behavior?!It's actually impressive how big of a wall you can build just using already existing court documents and public record. (And it's severely out of date)
Now as for Epstein's connections (keep in mind Dmitry Rybolovlev in the bottom mid left space...
