A New York judge has ordered an official hearing to advance a court case that accuses Trump of raping a young girl at an event hosted by convicted pedophile and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
However, Epstein’s connections to other powerful politicians have been largely overlooked by corporate media.
A New York Judge has scheduled a courtroom hearing over whether Donald Trump will stand trial for allegedly raping a young girl. The hearing has been officially set for December 16th, more than a month after this year’s presidential election.
The move to advance the case comes two weeks after the plaintiff’s legal team voluntarily dropped the lawsuit in order to officially add a third witness’ testimony to their complaint.
The new complaint represents the plaintiff’s third attempt in filing this particular lawsuit. All plaintiffs and witnesses are using pseudonyms, protecting their identities while also shielding them from public scrutiny.
The hearing will likely only add to Trump’s current legal and financial struggles as his “charitable” foundation was recently shut down by the New York State Attorney General for alleged fraud.
Some have argued that the New York Judge overseeing the case, Ronnie Abrams, is politically motivated in her decision to hold a hearing as she was appointed by President Obama in 2012. Obama has expressed numerous times that a Donald Trump presidency would be dangerous.
Trump is officially being charged of raping a thirteen-year-old girl in 1994 while he was allegedly attending a party hosted by disgraced billionaire and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Though Trump has fervently denied the accusations and also denied having any formal connection to Epstein, he did tell New York magazine in 2002 that:
“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
During the 2009 trial against Jeffrey Epstein, who was later convicted of running a underage sex racket for wealthy elites, Epstein’s brother Mark testified that Trump had flown on Jeffrey’s private jet at least once.
In addition, a 2003 story, also in New York magazine, reported that Trump had dined at Epstein’s Manhattan home along with Google co-founder Sergey Brin, former British Cabinet minister Peter Mandelson, and Bill Clinton aide Doug Band.
However, the prosecutor in the Epstein case said at the time of the trial that it is “obvious” that Trump was not involved in any of Epstein’s illicit activity.
Given that Trump’s Epstein connections are becoming a major part of the US presidential campaign, it is truly astounding that most media outlets reporting on the case have overlooked another key person who also regularly socialized with Jeffrey Epstein, former President Bill Clinton.
Flight logs obtained from Epstein’s mansions show that Bill Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private jet at least 26 times, compared to Trump’s one trip, and is widely reported to have visited Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.
Epstein’s island home was nicknamed “orgy island” among insiders and the attorneys of Epstein’s victims allege it was where the worst crimes against minors took place.
Between 2001 and 2003, Bill Clinton also accompanied Epstein on a number of “extended junkets” around the world. Clinton reportedly ditched his Secret Service detail for at least five of those flights.
In an interview with her attorneys, Virginia Roberts – who was the plaintiff in the case that led to Epstein’s conviction – said that Epstein told her that he had “compromising” information on Bill Clinton and that Clinton owed him “a favor.”
Epstein had also lent his private jet to Bill in 2002 for a Clinton Foundation tour of its AIDS-fighting and development work in Africa.
Actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker were among those in attendance. In addition, Epstein himself has claimed to be a co-founder of the Clinton Foundation, though the Clintons credit Doug Band with the idea.
As previously mentioned, Band also shares connections to Epstein. However, most damning of all is that Epstein transferred $3.5 million from his personal bank account to the Clinton Foundation around the same time that the FBI began investigating him in 2006.
The FBI found evidence that Epstein had kept at least 40 young girls, some as young as 12, as sex slaves, who were forced to participate in group sex with Epstein and his famous friends.
Epstein received a light sentence due to a “sweetheart deal” which many speculated was due to the fact that the case prosecutor, Matt Menchel, has donated thousands to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns.
If Clinton was even closer to Epstein than Trump, why is he not also being investigated or even mentioned in mainstream media coverage of the Trump case?
Yet, regardless of who is more guilty of illicit sexual activity, there will be an accused rapist living in the White House no matter who wins November’s election.
