It’s been a busy week in the news business with new information about Jeffrey Epstein coming out almost hourly.
Unsealed court documents have alleged that Jeffrey Epstein once had three 12-year-old girls flown in from France for him to abuse as a sadistic birthday present. *Jeffrey Epstein supposedly got the girls from Brunel who bought them in Paris from their parents, offering them the usual sums of money, visas, and modeling career prospects.
Another civil suit also alleges that Brunel and Epstein recruited young girls from South America and Eastern Europe to have sex with him.
Epstein invested $1million to help launch Brunel’s Miami-based modeling firm MC2, in return for a ‘supply of girls on tap’, the suit claims.
Brunel is among the many associates of Epstein who are facing renewed scrutiny from US investigators in the wake of his death.
Three former MC2 models told The Guardian they were sexually assaulted by Brunel in and nearby Paris throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
Allegations of misconduct against the French model scout, 72, date back decades. He has never faced any legal action but is now back in the headlines as attention turns to friends and associates of the deceased Jeffrey Epstein.
MC2 also denied any connection to Epstein’s crimes and previously said Brunel no longer actively worked with the firm, despite the scout saying he still owned it in a 2015 legal case, which remains open.
Prince Andrew wont be investigated
This might come as a shock to many people following this case. Prince Andrew has been mentioned several times as a possible co-conspirator to Jeffrey Epstein, but it now seems that the victims and the prosecution team are looking to him for help and therefore not seeking any legal action against him.
“I look forward to coordinating a formal deposition where he will be given the opportunity to tell us everything he knows,” Brad Edwards, a lawyer for Giuffre, told the Guardian on Monday. “We would like to do this as soon as possible, at his convenience, and again we are very appreciative of his willingness to help.”
Giuffre alleged in 2011 testimony that Andrew “knows the truth” about Epstein’s abuse of underage girls and said he should be made to testify. In a December 2014 court filing she alleged that she was made to have sex with Andrew among other friends of Epstein.
Edwards said on Monday that Andrew’s latest remarks “give the impression that he will do his part to ensure the victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes are able to get answers and justice”. He added: “I would like to personally help him provide these victims his assistance.”
How the tune can suddenly change..
Accusers believe Epstein could have been stopped earlier
More than two decades before Jeffrey Epstein took his own life, a woman went into a California police station and filed one of the earliest sex-crime complaints against him: that he groped her during what she thought was a modeling interview for the Victoria’s Secret catalog.
Alicia Arden said she never heard back from investigators about her complaint. No charges ever came of it. And to this day she sees it as a glaring missed opportunity to bring the financier to justice long before he was accused of sexually abusing dozens of teenage girls and women.
“The fact that they didn’t do anything, and they discredited me, is just a stab to my heart,” Arden said.
The fake Ghislaine burger images
Last week, long-absent Jeffrey Epstein co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell surfaced at an In-N-Out in Universal City, Los Angeles, looking poised and reading a book about CIA operatives.
Inside Edition had the images examined by a forensic photo expert, who found a line and brush strokes around Maxwell’s back that seem to indicate that she might have been Photoshopped into the picture.
All the evidence seem to point to the image being staged by Ghislaines lawyer, Leah Saffian. But the question is why Ghislaine was shown at that spot reading a CIA related book.
Epstein signed will 2 days before death
The will, details of which were first reported by the New York Post, directs Epstein’s assets to be put into trust. The former financier put all of his holdings into a trust called The 1953 Trust, according to a copy of the will published by the New York Post. He signed the document on 8 August.
No details of any beneficiaries are included in the document, which lists assets including more than $56m in cash, more than $14m in fixed income investments and more than $18m in “aviation assets, automobiles and boats”.
Epstein’s collection of fine arts, antiques and other valuables is yet to be appraised, the document says.
The Epstein-Barr connection
Donald Barr is the father of the more well-known, William Barr, who is the Attorney General of the United States and the one ultimately responsible for the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein. Donald wrote a science fiction book in 1973, Space Relations, that was highly unsettling and depicted the rape of enslaved people, especially teenage girls, and other coercive sex acts for the dual purposes of entertainment and controlled procreation.
By far the most disgusting aspect of the novel is its fixation on sexualizing adolescents, and its depictions of rape. Even the adult characters in the book are constantly infantilized. The novel is also rife with casually unsettling observations such as: “To me, pederasty seems utterly lacking in aesthetic appeal.”
The Epstein-Barr connection, is a weak link compared to more substantive evidence of Epstein’s relationships dug up in flight logs, photos, and court filings. But it is still a very suspicious connection that needs to investigated. And since the son of Donald Barr is in charge of the investigations, allegations of a cover up or something even more nefarious is certain to surface online and perhaps in the mainstream media too.
There’s no direct link between Barr and Epstein, but it’s interesting to note that Epstein started teaching at the same school as Barr, only 3 months after his resignation.
Epsteins cellmate was the one who attacked him
The ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione, who briefly bunked with Epstein at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, has been told by various guards there to “shut up,” “stop talking” and “stop complaining,” as questions swirled about how the accused sex trafficker was able to commit suicide in federal custody, Tartaglione attorney Bruce Barket says in a letter to White Plains federal Judge Kenneth Karas.
The 51-year-old former Briarcliff Manor cop is facing the death penalty for his alleged involvement in four drug-related slayings.
Connections to Australian political elites
A woman filmed with Prince Andrew at Jeffrey Epstein’s New York home has been identified as the socialite daughter of a former prime minister of Australia.
The Sydney Morning Herald first noted the “striking resemblance” of Katherine Keating to the woman, who Prince Andrew greets as she leaves Epstein’s Upper East Side mega-mansion in December 2010.
Keating once left Sydney to live in New York to be closer to her then partner, famed hotelier Andre Balazs. One of the many names reportedly found in Epstein’s “little black book” of famous contacts, according to the Morning Herald.
She also has ties to Epstein’s former gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been accused in court papers of being his madam.
Epsteins lawyer talks about conspiracy
Marc Fernich who represented Jeffrey Epstein is “skeptical” about the medical examiner’s conclusion that his client committed suicide. “It would not surprise me… to learn of anything that might have happened to Jeffrey Epstein,” he says, adding that Epstein’s mysterious death will be the subject of conspiracy theories for decades to come.
With at least two other investigations into Epstein’s mysterious death underway in addition to the medical examiner’s ruling of suicide, “we’ll see where the chips fall,” Fernich says. “But my personal view is that this is destined to go down as a JFK or a Jim Morrison type of situation, and we’ll be hearing conspiracy theories about that, whether founded or unfounded, for as long as we’re around on this earth.”
