Prosecutors broke law by not informing victims of Jeffrey Epstein plea bargain, judge rules

A federal judge in Florida ruled Thursday that prosecutors -- including current Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta -- violated federal law when they reached a plea agreement in 2007 with financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and did not inform his dozens of victims.

In a 33-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra wrote that prosecutors in the Southern District of Florida "mislead" Epstein's victims after negotiating the plea agreement by telling them "to be 'patient' while the investigation proceeded" and leading them to believe "that federal prosecution was still a possibility." However, Marra stopped short of short of invalidating the agreement, but asked prosecutors and victims' lawyers to recommend in 15 days how to move forward.

The judge wrote that evidence showed that Epstein "sexually abused more than 30 minor girls" between 1999 and 2007 "at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, and elsewhere in the United States and overseas." Epstein, Marra added, "used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him [and] worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification, but also for the sexual gratification of others."

Marra cited a letter to Acosta, then the U.S. Attorney in Miami, from Epstein attorney Jay Lefkowitz following an October 2007 breakfast meeting in which Lefkowitz wrote: "I ... want to thank you for the commitment you made to me during our October 12 meeting in which you . . . assured me that your Office would not . . . contact any of the identified individuals, potential witnesses, or potential civil claimants and their respective counsel in this matter."

Marra's ruling cites a statement by Marie Villafaña, then as now an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, that "[f]rom the time the FBI began investigating Epstein until September 24, 2007—when the [plea agreement] was concluded—the Office never conferred with the victims about [an agreement] or told the victims that such an agreement was under consideration."

Today’s order represents long-overdue vindication for all of the victims of Mr. Epstein and his co-conspirators," the victims' attorney, Brad Edwards, said in a statement. "Unfortunately, this decision also highlights the failure of the United States Government to acknowledge its obvious wrongdoing. Rather than work to correct the injustices done to the victims, the Government spent 10 years defending its own improper conduct. It is time for the Government to work with the victims, and not against them, to hold everyone who committed these crimes accountable. Hopefully, the victims will finally receive the strong and direct apology they deserve for the flagrant depravation of their rights under the Crime Victim’s Rights Act."

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee, said in a statement that he was "relieved" at the judge's ruling.

"Jeffrey Epstein is a monster and his victims deserve justice," Sasse said. " ... The fact that it’s taken this long to get this far is heartbreaking and infuriating. The Department of Justice should use this opportunity to reopen its non-prosecution agreement so that Epstein and anyone else who abused these children are held accountable."

In addition to his Palm Beach mansion, Epstein, now 66, allegedly operated his sex ring at a residence in New York City and his private island estate on the 72-acre Virgin Islands home dubbed “Orgy Island.” by some. Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed former President Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein's private jet, known as the "Lolita Express," and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions.

Epstein and President Trump also had a friendship, and one of Epstein's accusers told the Miami Herald newspaper that she was 16 years old and working at Mar-a-Lago as a locker room attendant when a female Epstein associate approached her in the summer of 2000 to offer her a job as a masseuse. The accuser, Virginia Roberts, told the Herald that Epstein and the associate sexually abused her and claimed she was "lent out to politicians and academics and royalty."

During his confirmation hearing in 2017, Acosta told lawmakers that the decision to make a deal with Epstein was "broadly held" in the U.S. Attorney's office.

"The grand jury [in Florida] recommended a single count of solicitation not involving minors. That would have resulted in zero jail time, zero registration as a sexual offender and zero restitution for the victims in this case," said Acosta, who added, "It was highly unusual where a U.S. attorney becomes involved in a matter that has already gone to the grand jury at the state level. We decided that Mr. Epstein should plead guilty to two years, register as a sexual offender, and concede liability so the victims should get restitution in this matter."

Alan Dershowitz suggests curbing press access to hearing on Jeffrey Epstein sex abuse

A court hearing on whether to unseal sensitive documents involving the alleged sex trafficking of underage girls by Palm Beach multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein — and the possible involvement of his influential friends — will play out in a New York City courtroom next week.

But it may happen behind closed doors, with the news media and public barred — at least in part.

An attorney for lawyer Alan Dershowitz wrote a letter to the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday, asking whether the media should be excluded from the proceeding because his oral arguments on behalf of his client could contain sensitive information that has been under seal.

Clintons Connected to Another Major Pedophile Ring

Evidence has emerged that Hillary Clinton is connected to the pedophile ring recently uncovered in Norway, involving 51 people, including politicians, teachers and doctors.

Following the arrest of 20 people connected to child abuse scandal, Clinton Foundation donors in Norway have withdrawn their support for Hillary Clinton amid rumors that Hillary has connections to the pedophile ring.

Desultoryheroics.com reports:

Last Sunday, as reported by the Associated Press and a variety of both independent and corporate news sources, a large pedophile ring involving 51 people was busted in Norway, leading to the arrest of 20 people, three convictions and a search for the others in different parts of the country. One of the most detailed reports so far came from Turkey’s Daily Sabah, reposted below:

Norwegian police said on Sunday they are investigating a grotesque pedophilia ring suspected of involvement in the abuse of at least 51 people, which includes the abuse of infants and at least one case of a suspect acknowledging abusing his own children. The latest incident is considered one of the largest child sexual abuse cases in the country’s history.

Deputy Police Chief Gunnar Floystad said that in they have arrested 20 men so far, with three convictions, in western Norway. The 31 other suspects are from other regions in Norway. Those facing charges are to receive a maximum penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

Floystad told reporters Sunday that many of the suspects are highly educated, and include lawyers and politicians. Two current or former elected officials, one teacher and a lawyer are allegedly among the accused. He said he could not reveal more details pending the conclusion of the investigation, known as “Dark Room,” which began in 2015. Prosecutors said the perpetrators met in the dark web, using encryption and anonymity to hide their tracks.

“We have the clear perception that like-minded individuals met with each other in the so-called dark net, where they could talk with one another and cultivate their interest in children in peace,” Hilde Reikrås, the head of Operation Dark Room, said at a press conference on Sunday, the Local Norway reported.

“There are several highly educated [individuals] with high IT skills. They’ve used encryption and anonymity to hide their tracks,” head police prosecutor Janne Ringset Heltne said at the Sunday press conference, adding that all of the perpetrators involved are allegedly men.

“The material shows the abuse of children of all ages, including infants,” Reikrås said. She also gave examples of the scope of the horrific abuse.

Having just a few moments to look into this, I think this bust is from 2016.

I'm going to call bullshit on the above story.

Guns don't kill people. Knowing too much about the Clintons kills people.

This go round, there may be hope, though. The Clinton Star is in decline, rather than rising, and a fair amount of their cronies in the DoJ have been expunged.

There will certainly be some incoming Arkancides, but I'm not so convinced that there won't be honest investigations into them this time.

NXIVM sex cult leader Keith Raniere faces child pornography charges in new indictment

Founder of the ‘self-help’ group NXIVM, which has been unmasked as a bizarre slave-master sex cult, has been hit with a barrage of new charges, which include production of child pornography and sexual exploitation of a child.

Keith Raniere, leader of NXIVM (pronounced 'Nexium'), an Albany-based cult that styled itself as a self-improvement group, is facing two more charges in a superseding indictment unsealed by the attorney for New York's Eastern District on Wednesday

It is now alleged that Raniere, better known as 'Vanguard' or 'Master' within the secretive group, coerced underage girls to participate in porn photoshoots for more than 10 years. He then kept files with sexually explicit images and stored them on a hard drive.

The memorandum issued by the district attorney's office stated that other high-ranking members of NXIVM that were put on trial along with Raniere were well aware of their leader's sexual relationships with minors. One of the underage victims was identified as "a fifteen-year-old girl" who was working for the group's co-founder, Nancy Salzman.

The same day new charges against Raniere were filed, Salzman pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge. The teen became "Raniere's first-line slave" in the clandestine sorority group within NXIVM known as DOS, which stands for 'dominant over submissive' in Latin.

Another victim was described only as "a child" whose sexual relationship with the 'guru' was "known" and "facilitated" by other members.

Raniere was arrested in his luxury hideout in Mexico in March last year and flown to the US, where he, along with other prominent members, including Hollywood actress Allison Mack and liquor heiress Clare Bronfman, were indicted on a number of charges. Apart from the new child porn allegation, Raniere has already been charged with forced labor conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, sex trafficking, attempted sex trafficking, racketeering conspiracy, sex trafficking conspiracy, and conspiracy to commit identity theft.

The court papers described DOS as a pyramid structure with Raniere, who was the only man in the sorority, solely at the top. New members, or "slaves," who were recruited into NXIVM were forced to give collateral to ensure that they would keep mum about the group. The collateral was sexually explicit images or videos, as well as true or untrue allegations made against themselves or their family which were filmed. The "slaves" were blackmailed into providing new collateral, sometimes as often as every month, which saw them signing over their assets or doing things that might kill their careers if made public.

Raniere is accused of subjecting members of DOS to physical and psychological torture such as self-induced sleep-deprivation. Raniere also instructed his female followers to have their genital areas branded with his initials and told them to survive on a 800-calorie diet, all under the guise of women's empowerment.

NXIVM was funded by wealthy donors and through personal development courses. A five-day workshop cost as much as $5,000.

Apart from Salzman, who was removed from the list of defendants after her guilty plea, all other senior member of the group, including mastermind Raniere, are still fighting the charges.

Raniere was denied bail and is awaiting trial in custody, while Mack has been released on $5-million bond and placed under house arrest.

NXIVM Leader Keith Raniere Hit With Child Pornography Charges, Co-Founder Nancy Salzman Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy

There’s been a major update in the ongoing criminal trials surrounding NXIVM, the self-help organization and alleged “sex cult” that reportedly branded women with the initials of their leader Keith Raniere and forced them to offer up life-destroying collateral should they ever speak out publicly against the group. Nancy Salzman, the registered nurse who co-founded the group with Raniere, has plead guilty to conspiracy during a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn on Wednesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Her sentencing is set for July 10.

Salzman teamed up with Raniere to form what she assumed was going to be a totally legitimate self-help organization, but quickly became involved in criminal activities to protect it. She admitted to stealking the identities of people looking to expose the group, hacking into their emails from 2003-2008, and tried to edit videos illuminating her criminal activities before they were surrender to plaintiffs in New Jersey. Salzman told the courtroom:

“It has taken some time and soul searching to come to this place. I accept that some of what I did was not just wrong, but criminal. If I could go back and do it all over again, I would. But I can’t.”


Hours after Salzman entered her guilty plea, federal prosecutors brought new child pornography charges against Raniere, alleging he had images of sexual relationships with two underage girls. One of them was 15 years old, NBC reports. He is scheduled to go on trial next month.

Clare Bronfman, heir to the Seagram liquor fortune, was arrested for racketeering conspiracy related to her involvement with the organization last summer. Allison Mack, Smallville actor and allegedly Raniere’s right-hand, was arrested last Spring on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy related to NXIVM. If convicted, she faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

I have a theory. I don't have a name for it.

It basically is the theory that people who can more or less have anything they want by way of wealth or power, or both, are always craving something they "can't have", something taboo, something that gives them a thrill just because it is not supposed to be done. It is sort of an extension of the lust for power. There is "common power", and there is "Taboo power". "Taboo power" carries with it an eroticism, a thrill, that they can't find in everyday life when they are so rich and powerful, everything just comes too easily. They seek out deviancy. They want to have their own version of Bruce Wayne and Batman, Jekyll and Hyde. Hyde is exciting. Hyde is living.

That might vary from person to person, or culture to culture..having to do with defying societal norms, but history is full of examples of rich and powerful people being extreme deviants in the dark.

The more deviant, the better. Bohemian Grove. NXIVM. Any kind of secret society, secret life, secret cult. Doing things that are naughty, that are dangerous, that are deviant, and having an approving and encouraging of group conspirators is gratifying. They will together push each other to ever more dangerous, ever more deviant acts, always seeking that new thrill, like a drug addict that always needs a higher dose to get the same high, they always need more deviancy and more danger to keep the thrilling feeling going.

That's my theory. That's the gist of it.
