After convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein was officially indicted on child sex trafficking conspiracy charges Monday morning in a Manhattan federal court, prosecutors said they had recovered nude photos of underage girls from his laptop.
“Officials say in court papers Monday that the pictures included some on CDs with handwritten labels including ‘Misc nudes 1,’ ”Girl pics nude’ and the names of specific young women,” Yahoo reported. “Prosecutors say the lawyer for one of the girls pictured told them the girl was underage when the photos were taken.”
Police exercised a search warrant on Epstein’s seven-floor, 21,000 square foot mansion in Manhattan Saturday after he was arrested and taken into federal custody. That is when they found the evidence.
According to One America News’ Jack Posobiec, Epstein is willing to give up names of other alleged pedophiles who paid for sex with underage women in exchange for leniency.
“SCOOP: Epstein’s lawyer has already made a proffer to SDNY. Epstein will agree to cooperate with the investigation, including giving up the names of individuals that paid for activities with underage girls in exchange for a maximum sentence not to exceed 5 years,” Posobiec said on Twitter.
Epstein was already granted leniency once, after being convicted of molesting an underage girl in 2007. He served about a year of jail time, but was released from the facility six days per week to work from his home.
The Epstein arrest has provided vindication for independent reporter Mike Cernovich, who sued along with the Miami Herald to obtain court documents from the 2007 Epstein case.
But it wasn’t until independent journalist and author Mike Cernovich doggedly chased Epstein’s records down, filing a lawsuit which was later joined by attorney Alan Dershowitz and The Miami Herald, to have documents related to Epstein’s past sexual exploits unsealed, that the mainstream press became interested in Epstein’s story.
Despite the fact that Epstein has long been accused of molesting multiple underage girls, and the fact that he has a longstanding relationship with Bill Clinton – with whom he reportedly flew on his “Lolita Express” to a private island commonly called “orgy island” – the establishment media looked the other way until its hand was forced by Cernovich.
After several years of work, Cernovich’s efforts paid off Wednesday when 2000 pages of documents “that are expected to show evidence relating to whether Epstein and his partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, were recruiting underage girls and young women as part of an international sex trafficking operation,” were unsealed.
The fact that Epstein was arrested just two days later is hardly a coincidence.
Cernovich spoke to Breitbart about the legal victory.
“This victory shows that Andrew Breitbart’s spirit is alive and well,” he said. “The lawsuit to unseal the Jeff Epstein records came from a citizen journalist and was ignored by the D.C. media class. Never back down and never give up.”
