An astute Twitter user noticed that all of the sudden Wikpedia users are quietly editing Jeffrey Epstein’s bio on the site to remove his connections to the Democratic Party.
Seems Wikipedia has altered Epstein’s bio already. First screenshot of Epstein’s bio was at 8:27 a.m. The 2nd was at 10:30 a.m. omitting Bill Clinton & Spacy yet leaving Trump! That is frightening. Same exact bio of Epstein, different times. https://t.co/T6lUHD8TrOpic.twitter.com/5QrjuovwHB

Indeed, this is frightening and shows the lengths Democratic Party operatives will go to bury unflattering history down the memory hole.
This comes after Christine Pelosi, Daughter of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and a top official with the Democratic National Committee (DNC), sounded the alarm over the weekend arrest of Jeffrey Epstein on sex trafficking charges.
Pelosi speculated that “some of our faves” may be indicted in the wake of Epstein’s arrest, the Daily Mail reports.
On Saturday night she tweeted “This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats.”
Here’s the latest on the Epstein case via Reuters:
“American financier Jeffrey Epstein was charged with sex trafficking on Monday, as prosecutors accused him of luring dozens of girls as young as 14 to his luxury homes in New York and Florida and paying them for sex acts.
An indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan accused Epstein, 66, of arranging for girls to perform nude “massages” and other sex acts, and paying some girls to recruit others.
The former hedge fund manager “intentionally sought out minors and knew that many of his victims were in fact under the age of 18, including because, in some instances, minor victims expressly told him their age,” the indictment said.
Epstein was charged with one count of sex trafficking and one count of sex trafficking conspiracy, for alleged misconduct from at least 2002 to 2005. He faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors will ask a judge that Epstein be detained pending trial because he is a “significant” flight risk, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, said at a press conference.
“The alleged behavior shocks the conscience, and while the charged conduct is from a number of years ago, it is still profoundly important to the many alleged victims, now young women,” Berman said. They deserve their day in court.”

Berman said a search of Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan, conducted under a search warrant, uncovered evidence including “nude photographs of what appeared to be underage girls.”
He encouraged other victims to come forward and contact prosecutors.
Known for socializing with politicians and royalty, Epstein once had friends including U.S. President Donald Trump and former president Bill Clinton, and according to court papers Britain’s Prince Andrew.
None of those people were mentioned in the indictment. The case is being handled by the public corruption unit of Berman’s office. Berman said he would not comment on Epstein’s associates and added “not to read into that one way or another.”
This is vile and despicable and we look forward to discovering who else was involved in Epstein network.

Prosecutors had gone easy on ‘monster’ Jeffrey Epstein

The charges filed against Jeffrey Epstein by Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman followed harsh criticism of other prosecutors for their handling of sex-abuse allegations against the financier.
Former Miami US Attorney Alex Acosta — who is now President Trump’s secretary of labor — came under fire in the wake of last year’s award-winning Miami Herald exposé of the nonprosecution agreement he struck with Epstein in 2008.
In February, the US Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility launched a probe into the deal in response to a request from Sen. Ben Sasse.
Sasse (R-Neb.) called the agreement part of an “epic miscarriage of justice” that let Epstein strike a plea bargain with Palm Beach County prosecutors to serve just 15 months of an 18-month sentence for two counts of solicitation of prostitution, one involving a minor.
In a statement following Epstein’s Saturday arrest, Sasse said, “This monster received a pathetically soft sentence last time and his victims deserve nothing less than justice.”
The office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. also went to bat for Epstein in 2011, arguing that he shouldn’t be labeled a Level 3 sex offender — the worst of the worst — in part because the Florida case against him never resulted in an indictment.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ruth Pickholz denied the motion and said she was “shocked” by the unusual move.
“I have never seen the prosecutor’s office do anything like this,” she said in court at the time. “I have done many [cases] much less troubling than this one where [prosecutors] would never make a downward argument like this.”
A sealed court filing obtained by The Post in April revealed that prior to the hearing, Vance’s office received a confidential state report that gave Epstein a risk-assessment score of 130 points, “solidly above the 110 qualifying number for Level 3,” with “absolutely no basis for downward departure.”
Vance’s spokesman has claimed that the DA was unaware of the move at the time, saying, “Our prosecutor made a mistake.”

Former President Bill Clinton said he “knew nothing” of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking, according to a statement issued Monday.
Epstein was arrested Saturday and charged with sex trafficking minors between 2002 and 2005.
He spent time behind bars in 2008 after pleading guilty to procuring a minor for prostitution. He is a registered sex offender in Florida.
“President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,” the statement read.

Clinton only took four trips aboard Epstein‘s private airplane and has “not spoken to Epstein in over a decade,” according to the statement.
Flight logs from 2015, however, put Clinton on the “Lolita Express,” Epstein’s private airplane, more than a dozen times. Many of these flights were shared with a woman who is believed to have been involved with getting underage girls to perform sex acts for Epstein and his friends, Gawker reported.
The Secret Service was involved in every part of the trips, Clinton’s statement read. The four trips “included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,” the statement read.
Clinton has taken at least 26 trips on Epstein’s plane, according to a Fox News article in 2016. Additionally, on some of the trips the Secret Service was absent, Fox News reported.
“Bill Clinton … associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” said Conchita Sarnoff, of the non-profit Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, according to Fox News.
Feds insist Epstein won’t dodge prosecution over alleged sex trafficking
This article was sourced from NYpost
The feds insist there’s nothing to prevent their prosecution of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Esptein — even though he cut a sweetheart deal over similar allegations in Florida in 2008.
In court papers, Manhattan federal prosecutors said a 2003 amendment to the federal law covering offenses against children expanded the statute of limitations “to any time during the lifetime of the minor victim.
Prosecutors also cited two reasons why the nonprosecution agreement, or NPA, that Epstein struck with then-Miami US Attorney Alex Acosta — who is now President Trump’s secretary of labor — isn’t binding on them.
According to court papers, it is “well-settled” law in the federal 2nd Circuit, which covers New York state, that “a plea agreement in one US attorney’s office does not, unless otherwise stated, bind another.”
In addition, Epstein’s indictment deals with “conduct not covered by the NPA, namely conduct that occurred in New York.”
“The prior NPA included a list of several dozen victims identified in the prior investigation, all of whom were abused in the state of Florida, and none of whom are a part of the conduct charged in Count Two of the instant indictment,” the Manhattan federal court filing says.
During a court conference Monday afternoon, Epstein’s defense lawyer, Reid Weingarten, downplayed the allegations against his millionaire client as “ancient history.”
“It is our belief that this is basically a redo. This is basically the feds, today, not happy with what happened in the decision that led to the NPA, redoing the same conduct that was investigated 10 years ago and calling it, instead of prostitution, calling it sex trafficking,” Weingarten said.
“We think that is the heart of everything, and that will be the centerpiece of our defense, at least legally.”
