Holy 007 Batman! Jeffrey Epstein doesn’t just travel the world as himself, with his American passport, he has another one from Saudi Arabia, with an entirely different name, stashed in a safe deposit box with piles of cash and diamonds. NBC News:
“Just this morning, the government became aware of a safe that contained a pile of cash, diamonds, a passport from a foreign country with a picture of the defendant under another name,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller told U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman.
The judge seemed surprised by the passport revelation and asked Rossmiller: “Say that again?”
“The passport was issued in the name of a foreign country, it was issued in the 1980s, it is expired, it shows a picture of Jeffrey Epstein, and another name,” Rossmiller said, adding the passport showed Epstein’s residence as Saudi Arabia.
The prosecutor said that Epstein is an “extraordinary flight risk. The judge is supposed to rule on the bail issue Thursday.
Interesting that Epstein’s phony passport is from Saudi Arabia. I wonder if he and Jared Kushner know any of the same people? Now while you’re pondering that question, ponder this: Purportedly Alex Acosta was induced to cut the non-prosecution deal for Epstein because Epstein was a government intelligence operative. Another submission from the you-can-make-this-shit-up file.
Alex Acosta got all the approbation of Trump, as you will recall. Trump had zero intention of firing Acosta, who was doing such a superlative job. Then the next day, Acosta was gone. Why? The Observer:
…a dozen years ago he was the U.S. Attorney for South Florida who cut that deal with Epstein. [Investigative journalist Vicki] Ward explained the background of that deal, which is now a noose for Acosta. Specifically, she elaborated that the Epstein issue came up when Acosta was appointed to the cabinet by President Donald Trump. Ward writes:
He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)
So there you have it, Acosta himself said that he was directed to stand down from prosecuting Epstein in 2007, regardless of the evidence against him, because he “belonged to intelligence.” Somebody’s intelligence. Now, you know we’re going to be drawing a straight line to Russia in the next few paragraphs, right, because that’s where all the breadcrumbs always lead us? Here we go.
It appears that Jeffrey Epstein was involved in intelligence work, of some kind, for someone—and it probably wasn’t American intelligence either. The U.S. Intelligence Community is lenient about the private habits of high-value agents or informants, but they won’t countenance running sex trafficking rings for minors on American soil, for years. While it’s plausible that Epstein was sharing some information with the FBI—many criminals do so to buy themselves some insurance—it’s implausible that he was mainly working for the Americans.
Who are the suspects then? It seems awfully coincidental that Epstein’s best pal and business partner for decades has been Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and daughter of the late Robert Maxwell, the media mogul who died under mysterious circumstances in 1991. Something of a Bond villain turned real life, Maxwell loved the limelight, despite being a swindler and a spy. British counterintelligence assessed that Maxwell was working for the KGB, while pervasive allegations that he was working for Mossad too are equally plausible.
Now, what is intriguing here is that the KGB loves to gather kompromat, and what is more kompromat than VIPs/heads of state, cavorting with underage girls? This is assuming, of course, that the daughter, Ghislaine Maxwell, followed in her father’s footsteps, but considering how the degenerate wealthy operate, that’s not too far of a reach. Not saying anything definitive at this time, just that this is an interesting point to hold in mind and see how things develop as the Epstein case progresses.
The expansion of the Epstein case is going to bring a lot of people out from the shadows and into the limelight, and not in a flattering manner, most likely. Jeffrey Epstein is the genie in the bottle, and now that that cork has been pulled, things are going to get really interesting.
