Briefly Noted: The Epstein "Pedo-Polonium" Effect

Yeah, I wish I'd come up with that myself, but it's in the first paragraph of Zerohedge's roundup: "It's Going To Be Staggering": Epstein Associates Prepare For Worst As Massive Document Dump Imminent:

As the Jeffrey Epstein case continues to unfold, a laundry list of celebrities, business magnates and socialites who have flown anywhere near the registered sex offender's orbit are now tainted with pedo-polonium. Many of them, such as Bill Clinton, Ehud Barak, and Victoria's Secret boss Les Wexner have sought to distance themselves from Epstein and his activities - however their attempts have fallen on deaf ears considering their extensive ties to the pedophile. 

So who are these "Epstein Associates" who have a lot of 'splainin' to do, that "laundry list of celebrities, business magnates and socialites"? Here's a quick copy and paste of names that are emerging. Most of it is smoke at this point, as compared to the fire of the Bill Clinton and Prince Andy allegations, but we all know that the fire will consume more than just those two. Ehud Barak may well be on that "fire" list. Anyway, I copy and paste:

Bill Clinton
Ehud Barak
Victoria's Secret boss Les Wexner
LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman
Elon Musk
Mark Zuckerberg
Bill Gates
Larry Summers
Steve Bannon
Alan Dershowitz
Lynn Forester de Rothschild
Prince "Randy" Andy

Anyone spot any likely GOPers in that list? There's Steve Bannon. That's it so far. The list will undoubtedly expand, perhaps exponentially. We're promised that by people who should know. Some choice quotes:

“Nobody who was around Epstein a lot is going to have an easy time now. It’s all going to come out,” said Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies. Another person involved with litigation against Epstein told me: “It’s going to be staggering, the amount of names. It’s going to be contagion numbers.” 
According to one source, Epstein had a steady stream of who's who's flowing into his Manhattan mansion, including Bill Gates, Larry Summers, and Steve Bannon.  
"Jeffrey collected people. That’s what he did," the source told Vanity Fair. 
"Epstein bragged about his contacts in Washington," said attorney David Boies. 
According to the report, "One theory circulating among prominent Republicans is that Epstein was a Mossad agent. Another is that the George W. Bush White House directed Acosta not to prosecute Epstein to protect Prince Andrew on behalf of the British government." 
"The royal family did everything they could to try and discredit the Prince Andrew stuff," said Boies. "When we tried to follow up with anything, we were stonewalled. We wanted to interview him, they were unwilling to do anything."

Should be quite a thing.


  1. I think the Prince Andrew stuff may be the real explanation for how Epstein skated in 2008- Prince Andrew is the one person that has been revealed that might have induced the Bush Administration to give Epstein that sweet plea deal.

    1. Possibly. But, well, maybe we're about to find out.

  2. That's a pretty short list for a supposed "staggering amount of names" for someone who "collected people."

    The Prince Andrew angle seems the likely explanation of the "owned by intel" explanation from Acosta re Epstein, though Acosta would be in the dark were that the message delivered.

    1. That's just the names mentioned at Zerohedge, ahead of the doc dump. There will certainly be more--lot's more in all likelihood.

  3. Mr. Wauck,

    When the Feds raided Epstein's residence, it was reported on the news that files of photographs with names were among the seized evidence.

    Now, I'm no fan of Epstein, but is it prejudicial for the stuff to get out in the news? It would seem to taint the jury pool and convict him in the public's eye.

    1. Are you referring to the search of his NY residence, within the last week or so? If so, that's not the stuff being released. The stuff being released is court docs in Florida from 2008.

  4. Maybe I juxtaposed the two events in my mind. I thought it was the NY raid but it could be the Florida court.

    1. I'm quite sure that they're not going to release the recently seized evidence to the public before trial. The docs from 2008 in Florida have been the subject of a years long lawsuit and are being released pursuant to the requests of the victims under the CVRA.

    2. I hope the 2008 material gets released on schedule, but part of me suspects that it will be opposed by SDNY in court and the release will be cancelled. I just basically don't trust anyone in the DoJ any longer, no matter where they are based.

    3. I understand the distrust, but I don't believe that at this point anything can be done to stop it--that train has left the station. I may be wrong, but I believe the CVRA is the key here.

  5. Good. Thanks for easing my mind.
