"often seen in the company of men like Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz and Donald Trump."

Hey, if I have to go to prison can I have 12 hours a day free to go operate my business? What I want to know is how much and to whom did Epstein pay? The treatment he has received does not come free.

I find it odd that a non-prosecution agreement with Epstein could also extend to everyone else involved, effectively shuttering an investigation into anyone. Seems like the FBI would have objected to this (or been complicit in it), but i'm no federal criminal lawyer.

An excellent question.

Ah yes the American Justice System - the finest judicial system a multi-billionaire can buy.

A better question is what did he have? His Florida estate had dozens of hidden cameras, and it is assumed that the same was true with his estate in the Virgin Islands. Fortunately for him his mansion there had a convenient fire. Then there was that ranch in New Mexico. All were known for the prevalence of under aged girls, many foreign. This reminds me of a large file on Antony Werner's lap top called "life insurance". Huma should have known better. When the walls came crashing down on someone so weak and corrupt, he would fold like a house of cards.

#8 | Posted by JeffJ The Clintons are politically dead. They can't sell tickets on their speaking tour even at 5 bucks a pop. But remember, there were many other powerful men and some women that took trips on the Lolita Express. Some like the future King of England.

Is it? I thought having ties to the Clintons got you killed. I'm having trouble keeping up with the tinfoil hat theories so please update me.

There's an easy explanation.

The participants in the agreement are into underage girls.. or protecting those who are.

It's not uncommon or necessarily frowned on to be into underage teens. It didn't disqualify Roy Moore in the eyes of his constituents, for example.

It could be more of a question of who could he rat on.

And as whodaman pointed out, it helps to have dirt on people who were with him on the "Lolita Express" and were guests at his place on ---- Island.

Gasp! the Clinton's and Donald Trump?

He knows all the underage tang that Dotard raped at his parties.
