You've got to wonder. . . Why now? And for whom (or for what faction) was Epstein amassing control files?

It crossed my mind to ask what monumental event(s) might be about to occur that would require something this scandalous to divert the public's attention?
I don't know what you have in mind but based on initial stories I read my first thought was that the whole idea was to associate Epstein with Donald Trump to influence the 2020 election. We all know from the Mueller report that the Russians routinely do this kind of thing but I thought maybe the Dems and the mainstream media might have observed how effective it can be and decided to adopt the same tactics (sarcasm intended).

After all, Epstein has a house in Palm Beach and was an acquaintance of Trump. Somebody even found a photo of the two of them together so what more evidence of collusion with pedophiles do you need? I've even seen it suggested that some of the young girls were actually recruited at the Trump mansion.

I expect to see congress critters standing in front of a camera to explain why we need a full investigation to determine whether or not the president of the United States is a pedophile. They will probably say they don't necessarily believe it and hope that it isn't true but that the American people have a right to know the truth about these serious allegations. I wouldn't even be surprised if some young lady comes forward to claim that she has first hand knowledge that Donald Trump was deeply involved.

I've read unconfirmed rumors that Epstein got that unbelievably sweet deal that previously let him off the hook because Acosta was informed that Epstein worked for US intelligence. If true (who knows, but it's believable enough), this new indictment could be a sign that there's a new boss in town and one small but particularly disturbing corner of the swamp is actually being drained.

Don't go getting my hopes up if you can't follow through :)

I take this as a sign that the Russia investigation has officially gone nowhere, so now it's time to try something else.

Hey it worked for Ken Starr, didn't it?

Side note: In Google when I typed in search "trump calls out bill clinton jeffrey epstein on hannity"
Nothing came up on the first page.
Typed the same search in Yandex and got the result I was Looking for.

Yeah, the deep ties between Epstein and Clinton have been known for years.

I've always assumed that's how he walked free, and the fact that Epstein no longer appears protected must certainly have Bill squirming. I imagine he's not the only one, either.

R. Kelly also finally arrested again for his underage sex trafficking.

Very interesting parallels. Powerful, rich individuals, lots of people nod, nod, wink, wink look the other way for friggin' decades, and now finally both hopefully will receive some real sentences and prison justice, I hope.

If I was the ruler of the universe, I would be putting these guys through some painful shit as well as anyone who enabled them and/or looked the other way.

I hadn’t heard the Intelligence theory. Very interesting, and worth checking out/following up.

Corto, if you become Ruler of the Universe, could you make me minister of- never mind. No light-hearted posts in this thread. Epstein’s crimes are just too abysmal and depraved.

That’s not really Occam’s razor, the best explanation being the simplest one. I don’t think anyone has wanted to put up with abuse, going back to caveman times.

Maybe with all the cameras and electronic transactions and such, this stuff just gets harder to hide as we go forward, which is good.

Not that I'd argue that prostitution and rape of minors is a good thing but....the loss of anonymity seems like it will be bad overall. Less freedom of expression, freedom of association, people less willing to speak out and express opposing views....

Better to let 10 guilty men go free and all that?
