Three More Women Sue Epstein’s Estate Over Alleged Abuse

Three more women on Tuesday sued the estate of Jeffrey Epstein, saying they were recruited to provide massages for the financier and then sexually abused.

The lawsuits, filed in Manhattan federal court, bring the total number of civil cases against Epstein’s estate since his apparent suicide in jail on Aug. 10 to at least five.

Two of the women say they met Epstein when they were 17, while a third said she met him when she was 20. All describe similar patterns of being brought to Epstein’s home to provide massages and then subjected to repeated, unwanted sex acts.

Lawyers for Epstein could not immediately be reached for comment.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 and pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14. He died on Aug. 10 in his jail cell at age 66, and an autopsy report released on Friday concluded he hanged himself.

Just two days before, Epstein had signed a will placing all of his property, worth more than $577 million, in a trust called The 1953 Trust after the year of his birth, according to a copy of the document seen by Reuters.

His death at the jail triggered multiple investigations and had prompted U.S. Attorney General William Barr to criticize “serious irregularities” at the facility, and to remove the acting chief of the federal Bureau of Prisons.

Epstein, a registered sex offender who once socialized with U.S. President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton, pleaded guilty in 2008 to Florida state charges of unlawfully paying a teenage girl for sex and was sentenced to 13 months in a county jail, a deal widely criticized as too lenient.

“Nor have any of the news reports mentioned the number of times lecherous Bill Clinton flew to Epstein’s island in private jets for sex.” Confused James

BS. It was widely reported that a Clinton spokesman confirmed that the President was on the Epstein plane four times. You are just trying to confuse readers by being anti-Clinton.

This in no way exonerates King Donald The Loser from what he may (or may not) have been involved in on his trip.

Sadly, one gets the feeling that these women need to take a number like at the deli counter. “Next!”

While nearly every news report includes Trump as a “friend” or “acquaintance” of Epstein, NONE of them have reported that Trump once ordered (or threw) Epstein off his Mar-a-Lago compound in South Florida. Nor have any of the news reports mentioned the number of times lecherous Bill Clinton flew to Epstein’s island in private jets for sex.

Simply appears to be yet another attempt by the fake news media to defame the President by just mentioning his name and trying to connect him to the predator.
