"Today is a win because it paves the way for our second suit against Epstein."
-- Bradley Edwards, attorney for Epstein accusers

There are a bunch of creepers on his FAA flight lists that have to be extremely concerned about this:

"The second lawsuit, filed under the Civil Victims' Rights Act, was filed a decade ago for two Jane Does who were allegedly sexually assaulted by Epstein. It seeks to nullify the controversial non-prosecution agreement."

Once that goes forward, all bets are off as to who will come into the spotlight as having sexually abused these underaged girls.

Jeffrey Epstein, serial sex abuser, settles one case, apologizes. Next up: federal court

The lawyer who took Epstein to court, Bradley Edwards, said he remains determined to give the women, now in their late 20s and early 30s, their day in court.

That opportunity could come in separate litigation that seeks to undo a controversial non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated in secret 10 years ago between the Palm Beach multimillionaire's lawyers and the U.S. attorney for South Florida, Alex Acosta.

Alan Dershowitz says he received a 'therapeutic' massage from a Russian at Epstein's home.

I usually hate these types of videos rather than a fully writ article, but it was amazing to finally hear Roberts in her own words and how she was groomed, got out of the life, and eventually tracked down.

Let's take a look at who has been logged by the FAA as having traveled on Epstein's Lolita Express, shall we:

Bill Clinton took repeated trips on the " Lolita Express" -- the private passenger jet owned by billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein -- with an actress in softcore porn movies whose name appears in Epstein's address book under an entry for "massages," according to flight logbooks obtained by Gawker and published today for the first time. The logs also show that Clinton shared more than a dozen flights with a woman who federal prosecutors believe procured underage girls to sexually service Epstein and his friends and acted as a "potential co-conspirator" in his crimes.

Epstein's predatory past, and his now-inconvenient relationships with a Who's Who of the Davos set, hit the front pages again earlier this month when one of his victims, Virginia Roberts, claimed in a federal court filing that Epstein recruited her as a "sex slave" at the age of 15 and "sexually trafficked [her] to politically-connected and financially-powerful people," including Prince Andrew and attorney Alan Dershowitz. (The latter, the filing claimed, had sex with the victim "on private planes")

Two female associates of Epstein -- the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein's former assistant Sarah Kellen -- have been repeatedly accused in court filings of acting as pimps for him, recruiting and grooming young girls into their network of child sex workers, and frequently participating in sex acts with them.

Maxwell, the daughter of the late media mogul Robert Maxwell, has been accused by Roberts of photographing Epstein's victims "in sexually explicit poses and [keeping] the child pornography on her computer," and "engag[ing] in lesbian sex with the underage females she procured for Epstein." She has denied the allegations in the past.

Clinton shared Epstein's plane with Kellen and Maxwell on at least 11 flights in 2002 and 2003 -- before any of the allegations against them became public -- according to the pilots' logbooks, which have surfaced in civil litigation surrounding Epstein's crimes. In January 2002, for instance, Clinton, his aide Doug Band, and Clinton's Secret Service detail are listed on a flight from Japan to Hong Kong with Epstein, Maxwell, Kellen, and two women described only as "Janice" and "Jessica." One month later, records show, Clinton hopped a ride from Miami to Westchester on a flight that also included Epstein, Maxwell, Kellen, and a woman described only as "one female."

In 2002, as New York has reported, Clinton recruited Epstein to make his plane available for a week-long anti-poverty and anti-AIDS tour of Africa with Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, billionaire creep Ron Burkle, Clinton confidant Gayle Smith (who served on Barack Obama's National Security Council), and other DNC luminaries.

Other prominent figures whose names appear in the logs, which document globe-spanning flights on Epstein's planes during various periods from 1997 to 2005, include Dershowitz, former Treasury Secretary and Harvard president Larry Summers, Naomi Campbell, and scientist Stephen Pinker.

The four of them look cozy:

Oooh, I've never read of Epstein's brother being involved. And 800 pages of content! Awesome link, Gal.

Probably the one who was sharing a pew today with the Pedo President.

"with the Pedo President."

Because you found BC's name on a manifest?

Were any of the victims on the same manifest? That proof should be easy to post.

I should be getting to that section tonight or tomorrow, the disposition with Epstein's pilot of ~20 years is next up in my reading material.

To RoC/LL: Regarding dispos, is "form." like a lawyerly objection to a question poised to a witness during a disposition?

#19 | Posted by GOnoles92 at 2018-12-05 08:57 PM | Reply

When you see "form" that is an NY way of objecting to the form of a question- lawyers in depositions have to preserve their objections, and in NY they kind of do it in a shorthand way. Here in CA the better practice is to completely state your objection: "calls for hearsay", "assumes facts not in evidence", "misstates prior testimony" "argumentative", "leading", etc., and that allows both the deposition officer (the person taking the depo), the witness and ultimately the trial judge to have a better understanding of what the objection is.

Yes they were as I pointed out previously, but you refused to accept the source. I suggest you check out either of Gal's links, you won't be able to STS like you did with my links. If you look at the highlighted testimony in Gal's document dump, at least a handful of times witnesses refused to answer questions about President Clinton and his actions on the Lolita Express. (Pro tip: hit CTL-F and type in Clinton and you will get dozens of hits).

Just wait, Bubba is in for some uncomfortable testimony during this upcoming trial

Given that Trump has allegedly visited Epstein's island, hung out with him and Maxwell and has allegedly flown on the Lolita Express at least once, we are probably both right.
