he-co-founded-clinton-foundation

Attorneys for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein touted his close
friendship with Bill Clinton and even claimed the billionaire helped start
Clinton's controversial family foundation in a 2007 letter aimed at
boosting his image during plea negotiations, FoxNews.com has learned.

The 23-page letter, written by high-powered lawyers Alan Dershowitz and
Gerald Lefcourt, was apparently part of an ultimately successful bid to
negotiate a plea deal before Epstein could be tried for using underage
girls in a sex ring based in Palm Beach, Fla., and his private island
estate on the 72-acre Virgin Islands home dubbed “Orgy Island.” Epstein
spent 13 months in prison and home detention after agreeing to a plea deal
in which he admitted to soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.

"Mr. Epstein was part of the original group that conceived the Clinton
Global Initiative, which is described as a project 'bringing together a
community of global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions
to some of the world’s most pressing challenges,” read the July 2007
letter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of Florida.
“Focuses of this initiative include poverty, climate change, global
health, and religious and ethnic conflicts.”

The hedge fund magnate’s true role in creating the foundation could not be
confirmed. Whether Epstein was an actual founder of the foundation or
exaggerated his role in a phony effort to appear altruistic is not clear.

Epstein is not cited in official paperwork filed by the Clinton Global
Initiative as a founder or director. Neither The Clinton Foundation nor
Dershowitz responded to FoxNews.com’s inquiry as to the extent of
Epstein’s involvement. FoxNews.com first reported that flight logs show
the former president flew on Epstein’s private plane dozens of times. But
Clinton has publicly credited longtime assistant Doug Band, now counselor
and director of the foundation, as conceiving of the idea.

The foundation has raised hundreds of millions of dollars, ostensibly for
charitable works in places such as Haiti and Africa. But questions have
arisen about how much of the donations actually went to aiding the poor,
and critics have accused the Clintons of using it as a slush fund.

Attorneys describe the foundation, which has undergone name changes since
its formation in 2005, as designed “to convene world leaders, forward-
looking CEOs, and philanthropists to commit to take action on pressing
global challenges.”

In an effort to emphasize Epstein’s close ties to Clinton before he was
sentenced, his lawyers also credited Epstein with "hosting" a trip to
Africa in 2002 on his private Boeing 727 for the Clinton Global
Initiative, which Clinton himself attended, along with actor Kevin Spacey
and comedian Chris Tucker, and other celebrities, purportedly for an anti-
AIDS and economic-development mission.

"In a feature article about Mr. Epstein in New Yorker magazine, former
President Clinton aptly described Mr. Epstein as a 'committed
philanthropist with a keen sense of global markets and an in-depth
knowledge of 21st century science,'” Epstein’s lawyers wrote. “President
Clinton reached this conclusion during a monthlong trip to Africa with Mr.
Epstein, which Mr. Epstein hosted. The purpose of that trip was to
increase AIDS awareness; to work toward a solution to the AIDS crisis; and
to provide funding to reduce the costs of delivering medications to those
inflicted with the disease."

Epstein also has supported the Clinton Foundation financially, but that
was not made public until two years ago when a whistle-blower released the
names of the super-rich, including Epstein, who held Swiss accounts at the
HSBC bank.

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which obtained
the data from the whistle-blower, documented $81 million being routed from
HSBC Swiss accounts to The Clinton Foundation, including money from
Epstein.

Epstein had various accounts totaling $3.5 million, the investigative
journalists group revealed and, in 2006, directed $25,000 to The Clinton
Foundation.

The close association between Epstein and Clinton is just one example of
their personal and professional ties running much deeper than previously
made public.

A FoxNews.com investigation in May showed the former president was a
frequent flier on Epstein’s infamous jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express,”
which earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly
outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

Flight logs obtained exclusively by FoxNews.com show the former president
taking at least 26 trips around the world aboard the “Lolita Express” --
even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of
the flights.

Epstein and his attorneys have said in multiple court filings that he has
been the subject of the “most outlandish and offensive attacks,
allegations, and plain inventions.”

However, hundreds of pages of court records, including reports from law
enforcement, reviewed by FoxNews.com, show Epstein was under close
scrutiny by the Palm Beach police and FBI for more than a year.

The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida prepared charging
documents that accused Epstein of child sex abuse, witness tampering and
money laundering, but Epstein took a plea deal before an indictment could
be handed up.

On Sept. 24, 2007, in a deal shrouded in secrecy that left alleged victims
shocked at its leniency, Epstein agreed to a 30-month sentence, including
18 months of jail time and 12 months of house arrest and the agreement to
pay dozens of young girls under a federal statute providing for
compensation to victims of child sexual abuse. In exchange, the U.S.
Attorney’s Office promised not to pursue any federal charges against
Epstein or his co-conspirators.

In a highly unusual civil lawsuit, Florida attorney Brad Edwards, and Paul
Cassell, a former federal judge who represented some of Epstein’s alleged
victims, are suing the federal government over the secret non-prosecution
agreement in hopes of having it overturned, so that Epstein could
potentially face additional criminal charges.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

The Obama-led Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
approved Uranium One in fall 2010. With a little luck, we'll see
compulsive liar Hillary Clinton in jail before she dies.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

If there is even a hint that prominent Democrats are directly involved with this guy and his antics, they were never see the light of day. The media wouldn't permit it.

Democrats had absolutely no influence in the sweetheart deal that
Epstein received.

The US Attorney for Florida's Southern District Alex Acosta was a
Republican appointed by George W. Bush. This all happened while Bush was
president. Republicans had final say in the matter of the extremely light
punishment he received due to negotiating that plea bargain in 2007.

Where is your condemnation for Alex Acosta, Rich? Why the hell is he
Secretary of Labor in the Trump cabinet?

Because your selective senility has kicked in, let's refresh your memory
of the situation:

I know you never met a situation that you wouldn't lie about. I don't
know what your problem is, not-Irish. You are the most untruthful person
I've ever encountered on Usenet.

This wasn't even your lie, but Rich's, so naturally, you latched on.

Nevertheless, George Bush was president at the time. Acosta was Bush's
man and refused to prosecute Epstein, and now we learned, violated the
federal victim's rights act.

Acosta is now Trump's man, a man who trafficked underaged girls for sex.
Child trafficking. This is the man you're apologizing for.

It's disgusting that if it's not named Clinton, not-Irish Mike will
apologize for a man who refused to crack down on a criminal who
trafficked underaged girls for sex and now apologizes for Trump
appointing him to his Cabinet as Labor Secretary.

What is it about trafficking of underaged girls that's illegal and
immoral that not-Irish Mike is incapable of understanding, that Epstein
should have been prosecuted to receive substantial prison time, and that
Acosta should not hold a responsible job in government or the private
sector? That not-Irish apologizes for Trump for appointing him?

I knew you'd duck the immorality of Trump appointing Acosta Labor
Secretary and thus a Cabinet member. Not-Irish Mike is therefore
apologizing for Trump appointing the guy who made a plea bargain with a
sex trafficker of underage girls with the right lawyer (who went to
school with Acosta) and the right Republican connections to get off with
a light sentence.

You disgust me.
