US Financier Jeffrey Epstein Arrested Over Allegations of Sex Trafficking Minors – Report
The 66-уear-old financier served prison time for child molestation over a decade ago. In the following years, he evaded numerous lawsuits and investigations but on Saturday police took him into custody pending a court hearing.

US billionaire financier, owner and founder of J. Epstein & Co. - later named the Financial Trust Company - and philanthropist Jeffrey Epstein was arrested Saturday night over numerous allegations of child sex trafficking, The Daily Best reported, citing law enforcement agencies.

According to the report, Epstein allegedly trafficked dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002-2005. The arrest comes 12 years after Epstein served a 13-month prison term in Florida for child molestation.

During his imprisonment, he was allowed to spend 16 hours a day outside of the detention facility, according to The Daily Beast.

Despite a subsequent decade of continuous investigations and lawsuits on behalf of his many victims, Epstein managed to avoid prison or federal charges, the report says.

The financier is expected to face court Monday. His attorney declined to comment on the issue, The Daily Beast reported.

Friend of the Clintons or Trump’s pal? Media war erupts after Epstein’s arrest
Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on fresh sex trafficking charges has ignited a media war, with outlets on each side of the spectrum rushing to tie their political opponents to the notorious pedophile.

Having already served 13 months in an ‘open-door’ prison for abusing scores of underage girls after striking a non-prosecution agreement in 2007, Epstein was arrested in New York on Saturday evening. Facing one count of sex trafficking of minors and another of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors, the 66-year-old could serve up to 45 years behind bars if convicted.

The sealed indictment reportedly details a litany of molestation, abuse, and trafficking of dozens of girls, some as young as 14.

A rich and connected man, Epstein rubbed shoulders with presidents, business moguls, Hollywood stars, and even British royalty. In the wake of his arrest, partisan media outlets jumped at the chance to tie their opponents to the disgraced billionaire.

Left-leaning Newsweek called Epstein a “longtime friend” of President Donald Trump, while Raw Story called him a “Trump pal.”The Independent described him as a “former friend of Trump,” while the Huffington Post highlighted a 2002 quote by Trump calling Epstein a “terrific guy” who likes his women “on the younger side.”

The sex offender was a regular at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago country club for several years. Trump also reportedly hitched a ride from Florida to New York at least once on his private jet, according to a 2009 deposition from Epstein’s brother Mark. Though Trump’s legal team have insisted the president knew nothing of his horrifying behavior, Trump barred his supposed “friend” from Mar-a-Lago after he discovered “Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,” according to court documents filed by Florida lawyer Bradley Edwards.

After news broke on Saturday, the right had accusations of their own. In a mirror image of the left’s coverage, PJ Media called Epstein “Bill Clinton’s billionaire friend.” Fox News also described him as “friends” with Bill Clinton, while the Gateway Pundit went a step further, claiming without evidence that Epstein flew Clinton to “Orgy Island,” a private island off the coast of Puerto Rico where the billionaire allegedly carried out much of his abuse.

A host of conservative commentators on Twitter also shouted the connection.

Stories of Clinton’s supposedly sordid connection with Epstein have circulated on the right for years. Fox News revealed in 2016 that Clinton had flown on Epstein’s jet – dubbed the “Lolita Express,” at least 26 times, reportedly ditching his secret service detail for at least five of these flights. A former pilot told a Florida court in 2009 that Clinton had indeed flown on the plane “ten or twenty times,” while one of Epstein’s alleged accomplices pleaded the fifth when asked if she had seen Clinton aboard the Boeing 727.

Such allegations surfaced during the 2016 presidential race. In a bid to throw dirt at Hillary Clinton, then-Chairman of the Republican National Convention Reince Priebus demanded records of Bill Clinton’s encounters with the sex criminal.

“When you hang out with a guy who has a reputation like Jeffrey Epstein, multiple times, on private jets, on weekends, on trips, on places at least where it’s been reported not very good things happen, it would be good to know what our former president was doing,” Priebus told Bloomberg in 2015.

For the moment, Epstein’s downfall has not brought with it any household names from the worlds of politics, business, and entertainment. However, as the case against him progresses, the embattled pedophile could come under pressure to give up friends on either side to avoid spending the rest of his life in prison.
