Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein arrested, accused of sex trafficking minors


GENTLEMEN, GREAT TO HAVE YOU.>>GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>GOOD AFTERNOON. MIKE: HOW SERIOUS ARE THESE CHARGES AGAINST EPSTEIN, DAVID?>>HUGE, MINE, HE’S EXPOSED TO LIFE ON THESE SEX TRAFFICKING. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THIS CAME ABOUT, BECAUSE BACK ABOUT A DECADE AGO, HE RESOLVED HIS CASES IN FLORIDA ON STATE CRIMES, AND HE SIGNED A NON-PROSECUTION AGREEMENT WITH THE FEDS. NOW, JUST THIS YEAR, THAT NONPROSECUTION AGREEMENT WAS FOUND TO BE VIOLATING FEDERAL LAW WHICH OPENS THE DOOR TO THESE NEW CHARGES. AND BECAUSE SEX TRAFFICKING DOESN’T HAVE A STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS, NEW YORK HAS NOW BROUGHT THESE CHARGES AGAINST HIM, AND HE’S EXPOSED TO LIFE IN PRISON. MIKE: AS A FORMER ASSISTANT ATTORNEY, ALEX, ARE YOU CONVINCED THE FEDS MUST HAVE THE GOODS ON EPSTEIN?>>THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK IS VERY VERY CAPABLE OF OFFICE, THEY ARE KNOWN AS SOME OF THE BEST PROSECUTORS IN THE COUNTRY. THEY HAVE A STRONG CASE. THERE ARE A LOT OF COMPLICATIONS IN THIS CASE. IT TOOK PLACE A LONG TIME AGO, THE CONDUCT AT ISSUE. THERE IS THIS DEAL HANGING OUT THERE, THE NOW LABOR SECRETARY SIGNED WHEN HE WAS THE U.S. ATTORNEY DOWN IN MIAMI WHICH COULD LEAD TO SOME COMPLICATIONS DOWN THE ROAD. EPSTEIN IS GOING TO HAVE A HUGE DEFENSE TEAM. THEY ARE GOING TO FIGHT THIS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. MIKE: PRETTY SERIOUS LAWYER ON THE OTHER SIDE TOO. WHAT ARE NEXT STEPS IN THIS CASE, DAVID?>>YEAH, HE’S GOING TO GO BEFORE A MAGISTRATE, AND THE JUDGE WILL DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT HE WILL BE RELEASED WITH CONDITIONS. THEREAFTER, THE PROSECUTOR WILL HAVE TO PROVIDE DISCOVERY. AND EPSTEIN AND HIS TEAM WILL HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT TO PLEAD GUILTY, WHETHER OR NOT TO GO TO TRIAL, AND I THINK THE MOST INTERESTING THING THAT POPS TO ME IS EPSTEIN GOING TO COOPERATE? BECAUSE BACK IN THE DAY, WHEN HE SIGNED THE NONPROSECUTION AGREEMENT, ALSO PROTECTED CO-CONSPIRATORS. SO IF HE IS LOOKING AT LIFE IN PRISON, NOW MAY BE THE TIME TO ROLL OVER ON PEOPLE AND WHO KNOWS WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE MAY BE INVOLVED IN THIS CONSPIRACY. MIKE: GREAT POINT, THIS GUY IS A BILLIONAIRE WITH A LOT OF WEALTHY AND HIGH-PROFILE FRIENDS. SHOULD THOSE PEOPLE BE WORRIED ABOUT EPSTEIN TAKING THEM DOWN WITH HIM?>>ABSOLUTELY. WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS IS IT’S BEING DONE BY THE PUBLIC PROSECUTION UNIT IN NEW YORK. THESE ARE FOLKS WHO GENERALLY DO CORRUPTION CRIMES, DO ECONOMIC CRIMES, AND SO THEY ARE VERY WELL ADEPT AT FLIPPING PEOPLE LIKE THIS AGAINST FOLKS SORT OF HIGHER UP THE FOOD CHAIN. EPSTEIN HAS FAMOUS FRIENDS. HE’S HUNG OUT WITH BOTH THE CURRENT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON. IF YOU ARE IN HIS ORBIT AND YOU WERE DOING THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE BACK IN THE EARLY 2000s YOU OUGHT TO BE CONCERNED RIGHT NOW. MIKE: DOES SEX TRAFFICKING WHICH IS THE CHARGE REQUIRE OTHER PEOPLE? DAVID, WOULD YOU EXPECT THE FEDS TO BE LOOKING FOR ALLEGED CO-CONSPIRATORS?>>YES, ABSOLUTELY. THE MIAMI HERALD CAME OUT WITH A VERY COMPREHENSIVE REPORT AND THERE ARE CO-CONSPIRATORS MENTIONED IN THE REPORT. IF THAT REPORT IS TRUE, THERE ARE MANY THAT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT COOPERATION BY EPSTEIN. MIKE: FINAL THOUGHTS, LET’S START WITH ALEX.>>YOU KNOW, THIS IS A CASE THAT COULD BE INCREDIBLY EXPLOSION. — EXPLOSIVE. IT’S BEEN EXPOSED TO THE NEWS. THERE ARE SOME UNDERPINNINGS THAT ONCE IT COMES TO LIGHT I THINK IT WILL BLOW THE SOCKS OFF FOLKS. MIKE: THERE’S ALSO SOME THOUGHTS THAT THESE WERE YOUNG WOMEN WHO MAYBE DIDN’T THINK PEOPLE WOULD NOTICE. THEY WERE KIND OF UNDERPRIVILEGED YOUNG WOMEN, IS THAT ALSO PERHAPS ENCOURAGING THAT THEY MAY GET JUSTICE, DAVID?>>YES. THEY HAVE BEEN REPRESENTED ON MANY DIFFERENT ACTIONS. THERE HAVE BEEN DEFAMATION ACTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN FILED. THERE WAS THE ACTION IN FLORIDA TO FIND THE NONPROSECUTION AGREEMENT VOID. THEY ARE REPRESENTED. AND THEY WILL BE HEARD. THIS WILL BE A CASE IN THE PRESS, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. MIKE: ALEX, ANY FINAL THOUGHTS FOR YOU?>>YEAH, I THINK THE FACT THAT NEW YORK IS DOING THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO WATCH VERY VERY
