Back in 2007, billionaire financier, acquaintance of both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton and child sexual predator, Jeffrey Epstein received one of the most unorthodox plea deals after an investigation found he was running a sex ring with teenage girls, some as young as 14, out of his Palm Beach, FL mansion. He served only 13 months in a county jail, which amounted to a slap on the wrist after federal charges were thrown out in exchange for two lesser state charges. Why? Fast forward to July 2019. Epstein was arrested coming off his private jet in New Jersey and charged with child sex trafficking by the vaunted Southern District of New York. Why did this happen now?
