Kirsters Baish’s Opinion| It was reported that on Thursday, a federal judge denied millionaire/close Clinton family friend Jeffrey Epstein bail after he was charged with child sex trafficking. Epstein was hoping to be granted bail of $100 million, but was denied.
According to the Gateway Pundit, “Epstein’s lawyers asked that he be kept in his $77 million Manhattan mansion with an electronic trafficking device as he awaited his trial. Epstein was arrested two weeks ago and indicted on one count of conspiring to commit sex trafficking.”
There could potentially be numerous famous politicians involved in the case against Epstein, in addition to Hollywood elites. The former house manager for the multimillionaire attempted to pawn off his personal contact book sometime ago. A copy of the book was obtained by Gawker, who published 93 pages of Epstein’s contacts back in 2015.
“The book contains entries for Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Griffin Dunne, New York Post gossip Richard Johnson, Ted Kennedy, David Koch, filmmaker Andrew Jarecki, and all manner of other people you might expect a billionaire to know,” reports TGP.
The list also included Billionaire Leslie Wexner, Former New Mexico Governor Bruce King, Former New Mexico Governor and Democratic presidential hopeful Bill Richardson, Peter Soros, the nephew of George Soros, and Former Miss Sweden and socialite New York City doctor Eva Andersson Dubin.
An FBI affidavit explains that Rodriguez called the address book, along with the information in it, the “Holy Grail” or “Golden Nugget” in terms of finding out more about Epstein’s sex trafficking.
Scribd posted a copy of Epstein’s contact list in November 2015.
According to an article penned by Joe Pompeo for Vanity Fair:
Ever since Epstein’s arrest on July 6, there’s been growing scrutiny of his vast network of rich and/or famous and/or powerful friends and acquaintances—or former friends and acquaintances, as it were. There’s a road map to that network in Epstein’s now-infamous black book, filled with many bold-faced names, phone numbers, and addresses, from Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Ehud Barak to Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Mick Jagger, and even Courtney Love. “It is a mosaic of Epstein’s social contacts,” the investigative journalist Nick Bryant told me.
Bryant first got his hands on a copy of the black book in 2012, after the feds caught Epstein’s former house manager trying to peddle it for $50,000. At the time, Bryant was shopping a feature on Epstein, without success. “My Epstein article would focus on the government malfeasance that enabled Epstein to skate on scores of child abuse charges,” Bryant wrote in a pitch he submitted to various editors, “and I would also look into covert ties that the government may have had with Epstein. Moreover, the little black book opens up multiple vistas of investigation, and I would attempt to amass sufficient corroboration on some of the power broker perps who molested these girls.”
