You’re right W.Jones, it’s weird. And it’s weirder if you dig down deeper than the MSM and BS have done so far.
Court documents show that Bruce Reinhart was an atty in the US Attorney’s Office in the South FL district when Epstein was being investigated by the FBI. The US attorneys offered Epstein a “non-prosecution agreement” (NPA), which is rare. USAO agreed to drop the investigation of Epstein and “co-conspirators” if Epstein pled to minor state charges.
IOW, this was not a “plea bargain” because there were never even any federal charges. And that is what has everyone scratching their heads — the FBI had good stuff on this pedophile and his “friends” for up to 40 charges of kiddie-sex and producing kiddie porn, why did they give Epstein an NPA and let them all go????
IMO when a DA does something procedurally crazy that benefits the perp and the perp is filthy rich, check the DA’s bank account.
Funny thing about that: Reinhart was a US attorney involved in the Epstein case until he quit in 2008. Epstein’s NPA deal went down in June, 2008.
According to Exhibit “C” in one of these cases (Epstein v. Rothstein et al) Reinhart left the USOA’s office and was hired by Epstein to represent Epstein’s people. For instance, Reinhart represented Epstein’s young “assistant” Sarah Kellen in a deposition.
Reinhart also tried to intervene in the current Crime Victims’ Rights Act case to set aside the sickening NPA deal given to Epstein. It is amazing to me that Reinhart is permitted to touch this case in any capacity.
The other interesting but unspoken thing in this case is the “lop-sided demographics”. The case has been, basically, the Jane Does’ lawyer Brad Edwards pitted against Epstein, Dershowitz, Reinhart, Rothstein, Weinberg. Etc. Foxman undoubtedly sees Edwards as antisemitic. I don’t think so. Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew are swimming in this mess somewhere, and they ain’t Jewish.
Jane Doe #3, Virginia Roberts, who is pushing this thing is now married w/ 3 kids and living in Australia. She’s a brave, and now undoubtedly wealthy, lady. But I don’t see a further payout for her in this action. The suit is against the USG to reopen the criminal charges, not against Epstein.
The worrying thing to me is that JD#3 claims she was provided to a famous prime minister while she was a minor. Hmmm …. Barak (and I ain’t talkin’ Obama) was PM during this time, and he was a good friend of Epstein. Probably just a coincidence, eh? Tony Blair was on Epstein’s buddy-list, too. Who knows? But one way or the other this thing is going to be huge unless these people can be shut up.
Here’s a link to Exhibit “C” — it includes the original Dershowitz claims and a lot more.
