House Speaker’s daughter says ‘facts must be followed’ regardless of left or right
Christine Pelosi said that the facts must be followed whether on Republicans or Democrats.
“This Epstein case is horrific, and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated, but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may — whether on Republicans or Democrats,” Christine Pelosi tweeted.
Epstein was arrested on child sex trafficking charges molesting dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida.
The 66-year-old Clintons financier was taken into custody by federal investigators as his plane landed at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday night as the FBI raided his New York mansion during the early hours of Sunday.
Epstein was charged with sex trafficking on Saturday by federal prosecutors with the US Attorney’s Office in Manhattan and will make his first court appearance on Monday in New York, according to reports.
The new charges accuse the billionaire of sex trafficking minors between 2002 and 2005 by paying them cash for massages and sexually abusing them in his New York apartment and his Palm Beach residence.

Did you know:
The FBI, under Robert Mueller, let child predator Jeffrey Epstein off with a weak plea deal
Dozens of young girls accused him of assaulting them
Maybe Mueller should have gone after Epstein as hard as he went after our President

Several of his associates allegedly recruited the girls, and some victims became recruiters themselves, according to the Daily Beast.
Records in the defamation case contained descriptions of sexual abuse by Epstein along with new allegations of sexual abuse by “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”
The appeals court found that the judge in the case did seal a number of documents without a justifiable reason when ordering the release.
