Sex Crimes And The Orangeman, 2.0


-by Helen Klein

Once he was elected, Trump must have taken a deep sigh of relief, thinking that his past sexual escapades were behind him and no longer worthy of scrutiny. Although the press has unfortunately left this topic alone for a while, this is likely to change very soon. In light of the Russian brouhaha going on, this aspect of Trump’s background now deserves focus under a microscope. Surely there is plenty more fodder along this vein to support the case for Russian blackmail, and it would be unfathomable for the media to ignore any aspects of Trump’s history that would shed further light on his actions and predilections.

Now that Alexander Acosta is up for Congressional approval as Secretary of Labor, this is a new opportunity to revisit Acosta’s past court cases, particularly the one involving Jeffrey Epstein, a longtime associate of Trump’s.

The February 16th Politico article, Trump’s Labor Nominee Oversaw ‘Sweetheart Plea Deal’ in Billionaire’s Sex Case, reviews Acosta’s role in the case against Jeffrey Epstein.
Acosta could face a grilling in the Senate over claims that-- while he was the top federal prosecutor in Miami-- he cut a sweetheart pleas deal in 2008 with a billionaire investor accused of having sex with dozens of underage girls. As the U.S. attorney for Southern Florida, Acosta agreed not to file any federal charges against the wealthy financier, Jeffrey Epstein, if he pled guilty to state charges involving soliciting prostitution and soliciting a minor for prostitution.

Acosta’s involvement in the saga could be personally or politically awkward for Trump, drawing fresh attention to his ties to Epstein-- including the financier’s tenure as a member at Trump’s Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago.

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York Magazine back in 2002. “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.”
Despite a decade of alleged serial sexual abuse and rape of an unknowable number of girls, some as many as 100 times according to court filings, Epstein was offered a deal. He received an 18 month jail sentence, of which he served only 13 months-- this included a 6-day "work permit" allowing him to stay home most of the time. Basically it was a slap on the wrist. This led to outrage from his other alleged victims.

Officially, Epstein is a convicted rapist and sex offender, although he minimizes this and laughs it off.
“I’m not a sexual predator, I’m an offender,” he told the New York Post in 2011, shortly after a New York judge classified him as a level 3 offender, “or a threat to public safety”… ”It’s the difference between a murderer and a person who steals a bagel,” Epstein said.
Epstein is notorious for his relationships with underage girls. His plane, nicknamed The Lolita Express, and known as a hot-spot for underaged sex orgies, flew many friends and associates, including Trump, to his private island, referred to as Sex Slave Island. He also has a mansion in Manhattan, where various nefarious activities of a sexual nature are alleged to have taken place.

Some further information about the Trump-Epstein connection was provided by Amanda Prestigiacomo in the May 2016 edition of the Daily Wire:
When under oath, while Epstein acknowledged he knew Trump, he “curiously pled the Fifth to Trump attending sex parties with underage girls.”

At least one of Epstein’s underage sex victims was recruited from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, which he frequented often.

Trump was subpoenaed in 2009 for his connection to Epstein’s underage sex slave rings. Trump has denied ever being served. The lawyer who served him said this was patently false.
This may be only the tip of the iceberg regarding Trump’s sexual exploits. More could and should be exposed that would be hugely embarrassing to him.

On August 20th, this writer wrote a DWT post entitled, A Potential Death Knell for Trump?-- A Case of Underage Rape. Matt Taibbi of the Rolling Stone mentioned the case in his article, Summer of the Shill. Unconscionably, this story got virtually no traction in the press during the campaign. The case was eventually dropped by the plaintiff, who apparently received threatening phone calls and felt intimidated.
Short version: On June 20, 2016, a case was filed in the United States District Court in the southern district of New York by Jane Doe, Plaintiff, proceeding under a pseudonym, against Donald J. Trump and Jeffrey E. Epstein, Defendants. A trial by jury is demanded. The incidents described took place in 1994. What are Trump and Epstein being accused of?

Rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse, forcible touching, assault, battery, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, duress, false imprisonment and defamation.
After the disgusting video of Trump with Billy Bush the week before the election, many women came forward to reveal inappropriate sexual behavior by Trump.

Buzzfeed’s incredible revelations from Christopher Steele, British intelligence agent, received considerable media attention.
Former top intelligence officer claims FSB has compromised Trump through his activities in Moscow sufficiently to be able to blackmail him. According to several knowledgeable sources, his conduct in Moscow has included perverted sexual acts which have been arranged/monitored by the FSB.

One which has borne fruit for them was to exploit Trump’s personal obsessions and sexual perversion in order to obtain suitable ‘kompromat’ (compromising material) on him. According to source D, where s/he had been present, Trump’s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs. Obama (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiled the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all of the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.
According to the recent Vox article, The 3 Trump-Russia Scandals Explained, the third leg of the scandal is, “Does Russia have dirt on Trump?”
The third scandal is, by far, the least supported of the three. It stems almost entirely from anonymous allegations in the Steele dossier, and involves deeply bizarre and hard to believe stuff. (Bizarre perhaps, but not actually so hard to believe.)

In 2013, Trump travelled to Russia to host the Miss Universe pageant. Before he went, he tweeted this: “Do you think Putin will be going to the Miss Universe Pageant in November in Moscow? If so-- will he become my new best friend?”

According to Steele’s source, Trump did some very naughty things during his visits to Russia… Russian agents filmed these acts, according to Steele’s sources, and are wielding them to blackmail Trump into taking pro-Russian positions.

“Trump’s unorthodox behavior in Russia over the years have provided the authorities there with enough embarrassing material on the Republican Presidential candidate to be able to blackmail him if they so wished.”

Basically, the Russian connection will be a problem for Trump for the foreseeable future. And it’s all his own fault.
In conclusion, further investigative reporting on Trump’s history of sexual exploits would be important at this time. Potentially worthy of a great deal of embarrassment, such revelations may empower women who have been mistreated by him and have been intimidated to reconsider pursuing civil suits and/or criminal prosecution. Revelations would also provide more substance to any further accusations about misconduct in Russia worthy of blackmail.

cool. president rapist now too. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

So... is rape a bridge too far for the racist fascists in the house? I'd say probably 65 - 35 not. Maybe if he raped a few underage boys... Girls don't count for much in a white male racist misogynist dictatorship.
