1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: William Barr just threw himself to the wolves, and Donald Trump is next

Right on cue, Bill Barr has now un-recused himself in the Jeffrey Epstein case. No surprise there since he did much the same thing with the Mueller investigation. Only this time, Barr pulled a complete turnaround in less than 24 hours. Whatever could be the motivation? The screams coming from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?


Donald Trump has been tweeting about everything under the sun except his friend Epstein’s arrest. His new fixer, Bill Barr, will now actively try to block investigations, committing felony obstruction of justice, but that’s just Barr’s destiny. It’s likely Barr will end up heading to federal prison in the end, along with Alex Acosta and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance if it’s proven they participated in a quid pro quo. But what’s interesting here links to my earlier New Mexico article about Epstein’s ranch. This thing has legs.




If there are girls filing civil suits in New Mexico, you can be sure there are girls in Paris, the US Virgins and any other place Epstein may have crawled around. State charges haven’t been filed yet, as far as we know, but given the savvy nature of the SDNY, you can be sure they’re working closely with the New York Attorney General. The minute Barr intervenes, it will go down like Manafort, with unsealed state charges.




The other thing to watch for is that this was handled by the SDNY Public Corruption Unit, so it’s a given we’re talking about more people in this case than Epstein, and they were/are public officials. Epstein’s operation went far and wide, so buckle yourself up for years of revelations. Keep in mind, however, that this may not be the straw that breaks Trump’s back. Fox is already questioning the new charges, and Republicans are referring to 13-year-olds as “young women” instead of what they are, children.


We have neither a dead woman nor a live boy pinned to Donald Trump, so he’s still kicking. But we do have one thing coming up: Trump Model Management. This will be or surely has been a part of the Epstein investigation. Trump may not have needed Epstein’s services when he could gratify himself with his own under-age models, but now that the dam has broken on Epstein, look for the Trump models to start lawyering up and going to their local prosecutors. The tsunami has rolled ashore with the first wave. Every subsequent wave will be worse.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s new 2020 census strategy just got laughed out of court

Spread the Knowledge

Donald Trump lost his 2020 census battle when the Supreme Court ruled that his rationale for the citizenship question was bogus, and when his own Department of Commerce admitted that there was no time to try again with a new rationale before the census needed to be printed. But that wasn’t good enough for Trump, who ordered his Department of Justice to come up with a new legal strategy. It’s bombed in court already.




Trump’s DOJ settled on strategy of going back into court with new government lawyers, and arguing a new rationale for the citizenship question that apparently never did get fleshed out. Trump hurt his own legal case when he publicly stated last week that the new rationale was because he wanted to base congressional representation on citizenship instead of total population, which the Supreme Court ruled against just a couple years ago. But as it turns out, Team Trump’s new rationale isn’t even its most immediate problem in court.




The census matter was reassigned to a different set of DOJ lawyers, ostensibly because the DOJ lawyers originally handling the case weren’t willing to go back into court with a half-baked new case and lie about the old case. The new lawyers handling the case are apparently craven enough to be willing to take on a corrupt case and argue it dishonestly. That’s a bad enough idea to begin with, before getting to the part where the judge threw it out.


Judge Jesse Furman ruled today that Donald Trump’s DOJ can’t simply swap out its lawyers on the census case, as documented by Raw Story, thus essentially laughing Team Trump out of court. This means Trump will have to hand the census case back to the old lawyers, who apparently don’t want it anymore. This is a train wreck in the making.

Who Is Jeffrey Epstein—and Everything Else You Need to Know About the Case

from The Daily Beast Latest Articles.

Unclear. When a judge asked if anyone else would be charged, prosecutors said there was no immediate plan to file a superseding indictment but left the door wide open for one in the future. That would allow them to add new charges against Epstein, as well as new defendants. The indictment refers to three unnamed employees who allegedly helped Epstein arrange the sexual encounters, but their legal status is unknown. Prosecutors could also expand the case to include anyone else who had sexual contact with the alleged underage victims on Epstein’s property.

Well, were other men involved?

That’s the billion-dollar question. A number of women who have publicly accused Epstein in the past say they were essentially shared with the money manager’s rich and powerful friends. A woman named Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleges that Epstein kept her as a sex slave and loaned her out to pals, including Prince Andrew and Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz. Both men have vigorously denied the accusation. On Monday night, former President Bill Clinton issued a statement saying that while he had taken four long trips on Epstein’s plane he knew nothing about what Clinton called “his terrible crimes.”

What evidence of ‘terrible crimes’ do prosecutors have?

In various documents and statements in court, Manhattan prosecutors indicated that three victims can testify that they were among dozens of young girls trafficked by Epstein. In addition, authorities have secured call records and seized notes and messages from Epstein’s house that they say corroborates the victims’ stories. They are still going through the nude photos to determine how many of the subjects were underage when they were taken; they said they have determined at least one was. Prosecutors also noted that in one room of the mansion, they found a massage table, sex toys, lubricants, and photos—a setup matching the description of the room where accusers say the abuse took place.

Why are there only three victims?

It’s not clear how many girls or women Manhattan prosecutors spoke to and vetted before they obtained the indictment, but the current charges relate only to three. More charges and victims could be added at a future date. Prosecutors say that after Epstein was collared at a New Jersey airport on Saturday night, they received calls from other women, and they encouraged anyone with a story to tell to contact the FBI.

What’s next?

Epstein’s lawyers are trying to get him out of jail. Prosecutors argued that his wealth, his globe-trotting lifestyle, and the seriousness of the charges mean that he’s a huge flight risk who should stay locked up at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (home to drug lord El Chapo). Defense attorneys have to file their request for bail this week and then a judge will decide where he stays until trial when he’s back in court on Monday.

That’s what’s happening in the criminal case. On the civil front, there are a number of lawsuits pending. Last week, an appeals court ordered the release of sealed records in a defamation suit that Giuffre had filed against Epstein’s alleged madam, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. The suit was settled in 2017 and the court sealed 167 documents, but the Miami Herald—which published a major investigation of Epstein and his plea deal—sued to make them public.

How did Epstein get so rich?

Although his exact worth is a mystery, there is no question that Epstein is immensely wealthy. In addition to the seven-story manse on the Upper East Side and the palatial estate in Palm Beach, he owns a spread in New Mexico, a home in Paris, and a private island—yes, the whole thing—in the U.S. Virgin Islands, two planes, and a fleet of fancy cars. How he amassed such a fortune has been a closely guarded secret. We know that after a teaching job he began his career in finance at Bear Stearns, rose up through the ranks, and then left, as Vicky Ward reported in The Daily Beast, under a cloud.

He started his own firm, reportedly managing the money of billionaires for a cut, but to this day, his clientele is largely a question mark. One exception is Victoria’s Secret mogul Les Wexner, his only confirmed client. Wexner previously owned Epstein’s Manhattan home, though The New York Times reports that city records don’t list details of the sale. Prosecutors say the building is worth $77 million—and they are seeking forfeiture of it.
