The Jeffrey Epstein 2008 sex scandal that cast shadows on many prominent world figures has resurfaced again, raising questions about how the billionaire managed to get away with so many sex abuse cases. Speaking to Sputnik, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel shared his views on ex-FBI chief Robert Mueller and the Clintons’ role in the Epstein saga.

On 6 February, the Department of Justice (DOJ) opened a probe into the handling of the Epstein child molesting case by Labour Secretary Alex Acosta — then the US attorney for Southern Florida — and other DOJ attorneys in 2008.

“The Epstein saga has long fascinated many who wonder how he managed to become a billionaire ‘trading’, starting with a thin resume, and, then, why so many powerful, rich, and well-connected people would travel to his various exotic locations in the company of young, beautiful women. It certainly is reasonable to wonder why interest in the case has bubbled up now, more than 10 years following Epstein’s lenient plea agreement in late June 2008”, Wall Street analyst and investigative journalist Charles Ortel told Sputnik, commenting on the timing of the DOJ investigation.

In 2008, politically well-connected American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein seemingly got away with the sexual abuse of more than 100 underage girls by striking a “sweetheart” plea deal with DOJ, being charged with one case of soliciting prostitution and getting just 18 months in a private wing of the Palm Beach County stockade.

“Jeffrey Epstein is a child rapist and there’s not a single mom or dad in America who shouldn’t be horrified by the fact that he received a pathetically soft sentence,” US Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who pushed ahead with the inquiry, stated

Did FBI Strike a Separate ‘Sweetheart’ Deal With Epstein?

Citing the issue on 7 February, One America News’ (OAN) Jack Posobiec brought into the spotlight yet another “figurant” of the controversial Epstein case — Robert Mueller, the current special counsel of the investigation into alleged Trump-Russia “collusion” during the 2016 presidential race.

According to Posobiec, “during his time of FBI director and before that in the Northern District of California he was well-known for his special deals”. Under then-FBI Director Mueller, the federal agency “received accounts from 40 underage girls that named Epstein as sexually assaulting them,” he noted. “However, documents show that in 2008 Epstein began giving information to the FBI; Epstein became an FBI informant.”

The journalist presumed that it was “in exchange for this” that “Epstein was never charged under federal law” and “instead… was only given a charge of one count of soliciting prostitution under state law.”
In May 2018, a Twitter user named Techno Fog shared a set of redacted FBI Vault documents concerning the Epstein case, suggesting that the federal agency run by Mueller at that time could use Epstein as its informant: “Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon”, the FBI document dated 18 September 2008.
