Lawyer For Epstein Victim Says Trump Was “Only” High Powered Person Who Helped Him

Contradicts claims Trump is implicated.

Published

The lawyer for one of the victims of Jeffrey Epstein said President Trump was the “only” high powered person to help him with his investigation, contradicting claims by some that Trump is implicated in Epstein’s crimes.

Epstein was arrested on Saturday night on charges of sex trafficking of minors.

Speculation is now raging as to which of Epstein’s influential friends will be caught up in the scandal, with Nancy Pelosi’s daughter tweeting, “It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated.”

Others have claimed that Trump is implicated because he was socially connected to Epstein at one time and was pictured with him in 2000.

However, Florida attorney Bradley Edwards, who represented one of Epstein’s accusers, said that Trump was the only important person to go out of his way to help Edwards with his investigation back in 2009.

“The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk,” said Edwards.

“I’ll give you as much time as you want. I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.”

Following Epstein’s arrest, some have tried to play up President Trump’s connection to the disgraced billionaire, despite Epstein having far closer ties to people like Bill Clinton.

In 2002, Trump said Epstein “likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

However, unlike some, Trump immediately ostracized Epstein once he discovered the truth about his double life.

According to one report, Trump once kicked Epstein out of his Mar-a-lago club after he caught Epstein hitting on a young girl.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS also once attempted to discover a close connection between Epstein and Trump but failed.

Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express” private jet ferried powerful clients to his private island, “Little St. James.” Former President Bill Clinton used the plane 26 times in just three years.

Leftists Freak Out After ICE ‘Tank’ Spotted In Queens

Published

“People feel terrorized”

The sight of an armored vehicle in Queens last week belonging to a branch of ICE had leftists all in a spin, as some suggested, wrongly, it was there as an ‘occupying force’ to arrest illegals.

The armored personnel carrier, (not a tank) surrounded by ICE agents, and even a gunner, was seen on Forest Avenue near Norman Street in the Queens neighborhood of Ridgewood.

The Ridgewood Tenants Union, a leftist organization, freaked out without checking the facts first:

They even accused ICE of inspiring terror:

“People feel terrorized,” said Raquel Namuche, an organizer with the Ridgewood Tenants Union. “This happened right across from a youth program for children as young as four-years-old and there seemed to be no safety protocols in place. For people to leave their homes early in the morning and see a tank out on the street is just wild.”

Again, it’s not a tank, it’s a BearCat tactical vehicle acquired last year by the Homeland Security Investigations unit.

It’s to stop federal law enforcement from being shot and killed by dangerous criminals.

Gothamist noted that the vehicle was used in an operation to arrest a man suspected of smuggling and illegally selling weapons:

An ICE spokesperson confirmed that one individual was taken into custody on an unspecified criminal arrest warrant. A spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio said the agents were there as part of a federal investigation into a firearms suspect, who was allegedly found to have been hoarding “about 50 guns, including a machine gun, gun parts and ammunition.”

The snowflake freak out didn’t end there, however:

Councilmember Antonio Reynoso also expressed frustration about the incident, pointing to constant fear in immigrant neighborhoods about the potential for raids and deportations. “I do not understand what necessitated ICE’s use of a tank other than the simple desire to instill fear amongst our community members,” he said in a statement to Gothamist. “At this time, we must ensure that residents are connected to resources like the Immigrant Defense Project so that they are equipped to know their rights against ICE.”

It’s not a fucking tank.

It wasn’t being used to arrest illegal immigrants.

Put down the Twitter and take a walk outside.

Trump Cancelling Government Subscriptions to ‘Fake News’ NYT and Wa. Post

“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore”

President Trump has proposed a plan to cancel all government subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post, saying that it will save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving—hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in an email to the Wall Street Journal‘s Andrew Restuccia.

The proposal comes in the wake of the president canceling the White House’s subscriptions to the print versions of the newspapers, calling them ‘fake news’.

“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore,” Trump said of the Times during an interview with Hannity earlier this week.

“We’re going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post. They’re fake.” Trump added.

The WSJournal reported that a White House official has indeed confirmed that print editions of the Times and the Post were not delivered to the White House on Thursday.

The impact on the newspapers is sure to be significant, for example The New York Times receives around two-thirds of its revenue from subscriptions.

Both newspapers have profited massively from opposing Trump’s presidency.


Meanwhile, the Times via Paul Krugman suggested this week that Trump and his supporters will start using “mob” tactics such as “roughing up the witnesses” called to testify in impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill.

Krugman suggested that the Republican interruption of the closed impeachment hearing would be followed up, and that House Democrats should start “thinking about precautions” because “anything is possible.”

Video: Trump Tells Hecklers To ‘Go Home To Mom’

“Don’t hurt them, please, they don’t know who they’re dealing with”

During a speech in Pittsburgh Wednesday, President Trump was interrupted by hecklers and protesters who he promptly told to ‘go home to mom’, while asking security not to hurt them.

Speaking at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh, Trump paused when a group of rabid protesters got into the room and began yelling.

“They don’t know who they are dealing with,” Trump told the cheering crowd as he began to bang the side of his lectern.

“Don’t hurt them, don’t hurt them, please. They don’t know they’re dealing with very tough people in this room.” The President added, before further berating the protesters.

“Go home to mom. Explain to mom that you tried to take on very powerful people, and many of them physically as well as mentally.” Trump bellowed, adding “It’s not a good thing to do, not in this room, be careful. Make sure you don’t hurt them – please!”

Video captured the protesters being taken out of the building:

Trump was touting his administration’s energy policies during the appearance at at the Marcellus Shale Coalition conference at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Noting that he has cut regulations and bureaucracy to make it easier for the natural gas industry, Trump warned that such progress may be ended if Democrats win the next election.

“What (Democrats) would do to you would be unthinkable,” he said. “What they would do to this incredible profession you are in and this segment of the economy would be terrible.”

Trump said that a return to policies similar to the Obama administration’s would result in “massive layoffs, exploding energy prices and a massive gift to our adversaries.”

“Our vision is 100 percent different from theirs – ours is pro-worker, pro-jobs, pro-family, and 100 percent pro-American.” the President added.

Outside the convention center, Trump supporters and riot police clashed with anti-Trump protesters:
