Victims Sue US Government for Allegedly Enabling Epstein’s Abuse

( – Several of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims are suing the federal government as of February 14th. They’re alleging that the FBI facilitated and enabled the predator financier’s trafficking of children for decades. The victims are anonymous and through their attorneys argue that the FBI ignored credible information suggesting Epstein was engaged in trafficking minors. They said that the FBI had the information as early as 1996.

It wasn’t until 10 years later that an investigation began, but it stopped once Epstein pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of soliciting prostitution and was slapped with an 18-month prison term. Epstein was bizarrely allowed to work from his office while serving his term and continued to abuse young girls during his “incarceration.”

It wasn’t until 2019 that the scandal became too big to ignore and Epstein was arrested again on charges of trafficking minors. He was found dead a few months later while in prison awaiting trial. Officially his cause of death was a suicide. Very few believe that to be the case.

The suit said that the “FBI’s negligence” directly allowed the trafficking of these children, which included torture, rape, physical abuse, threats of violence, and more. The 12 Jane Does are demanding accountability from the Bureau, and alleging that the FBI ignored evidence of additional criminal behavior by the infamous trafficker.

The complaint claims that the FBI was complicit in allowing Epstein and his co-conspirators to abuse children. It says the FBI was in possession of hard evidence, including video and photographs that indicated Epstein was involved in child prostitution. It argues that the failure to intervene was a deviation from standard FBI procedure.

They call the FBI’s behavior contradictory to the organization’s own rules which demand an investigation promptly and to pursue all leads regarding child sexual abuse material, the rape of minors, and the trafficking of minors to others for sexual purposes. Instead, the organization dragged its feet, ignored leads, and covered up the criminal behavior for years.

The plaintiffs are seeking financial damages from the taxpayers.
