A curse on all their houses
This is going to be brief, and, angry. Any allegation of rape of a minor is by its very nature shocking, and when you read the complaint..
"Plaintiff was subject to acts of rape, sexual misconduct, criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse, forcible touching, assault, battery, intentional and reckless infliction of emotional distress, duress, false imprisonment, and threats of death and/or serious bodily injury by the Defendants that took place at several parties during the summer months of 1994."
These allegations have not been proven in court. My comments are not to prejudice the proceedings, but, to educate.
What saddens me is the underlying corruption of the political process. One might think the timing of the complaint, in what already is the dirtiest American election in modern times, to be either coincidental, or, calculated. It also shines a light on some very dark places.
Jeffery Epstein is after all, The Billionaire Pedophile Who Could Bring Down Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting sex from underage girls and served over a year in prison for that after he and his lawyers entered a plea bargain, but details of his many parties with young women with the likes of Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, and lawyers Alan Dershowitz hit the news, with allegations against Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz later surfacing. The complaint against Dershowitz was withdrawn, but it is not known whether he settled to make it go away, see Did Dershowitz Pay Big Bucks to Settle Sex Case? April 11, 2016 "Dershowitz's opponents say they're willing to waive confidentiality. Is he?"
What is also known is that Epstein's friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, is the daughter of British press tycoon the late Robert Maxwell who dies under mysterious circumstances. It is alleged he worked for Israeli intelligence Mossad and entrapped and blackmailed many notables in public life, and now, his daughter was accused of acting as Epstein's madam in procuring young women as sex slaves for him and his guests. Yet she escaped prosecution under the very lenient plea deal arranged for her and others which enraged the law enforcement personnel who investigated the case.
It doesn't matter. Politicians are corrupted every day, and, also, once in a while, placed in er, blackmail able situations.
So I don't know if Donald Trump is guilty or not. I assume out of fairness he is not, and maybe, it's a political ploy to get him by the venal Clintons. Of course, given Bill Clinton's past history, it is more believable he, partaked of the forbidden fruit that was dangled in front of him.
What matters is that neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton are fit for public office, for reasons listed elsewhere. They are essentially, corrupt, running for office in a corrupted process; already compromised and easily blackmailable by those who care not for the poor and oppressed.
It is now up to the American people. What can you do?
