On monday billionaire financier Jeff Epstein was arrested by New York police and hauled infront of a judge.
The billionaire has been accused of child sex trafficking a charge that carries a 45 year sentence. The charge is a resurrection of a 2008 case in which he had been accused of having sexual intercourse with over 40 underrage minors.
The billionaire evaded justice during the initial case, cutting a deal with the prosecutor and serving only 13 months in jail during which he was allowed to go to work for six days a week and report to prison on Sundays only.
The lead prosecutor during that case is now Trump’s labor secretary. That however is not his only connection to Trump.
New reports have emerged from a Florida based businessman who claims that he was once requested to organize a party by Mr Trump at his Maralago beach club in Florida.
He arranged for 28 high end girls to fly in for the party since it was to be a VIP event. However, the man was shocked when he arrived at the venue and found only Mr Trump and Mr Epstein. What transpired at the event is anybody’s guess.
The two men were neighbours in Florida and often interacted in high society functions.
“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Mr. Trump told New York magazine in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
This comment has raised the spotlight on the President and his relationship with the sex offender.
However Mr Trump has distanced himself from the sex offender telling reporters that he knew him just as a neighbour in Palm Beach adding “I had a falling out with him. I haven’t spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you.”
The billionaire paedophile has also been linked with former President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew of England. The case is yet to be determined.
