The wheels of justice are starting to turn, aren’t they?
And they’re maybe even speeding up!
I know many people expected Epstein to be granted bail because of his power and money and perhaps due to prior conditioning of a crooked system.
Except they forgot President Trump, Bill Barr and the White Hats are running things now.
And the message was just sent down: BAIL DENIED!
Here are more details, as reported by NBC:
A New York federal judge on Thursday ordered Jeffrey Epstein held without bail, siding with prosecutors who argued the wealthy financier and accused sex trafficker posed a flight risk.
U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said prosecutors showed “clear and convincing evidence” that Epstein was a flight risk.
"The government application for continued remand is hereby granted,” Berman said just minutes after the pretrial proceeding began.
The defense had proposed a $77 million bail package, with Epstein's private jet and Manhattan mansion as collateral.
“I doubt any bail package can overcome" any danger to the community, Berman said.
Epstein — who wore navy blue scrubs, with rolled-up purple shirt sleeves — showed no visible reaction when Berman ordered him held.
Epstein, 66, was arrested July 6 at a New Jersey airport after arriving from Paris and accused of sex trafficking and conspiracy.
He faces up to 45 years in prison on allegations that he sexually abused dozens of underage girls at his homes in New York and Florida from 2002 to 2005. He has pleaded not guilty.
Berman sided with prosecutors who said agents unearthed a "pile of cash, diamonds" and "a passport from a foreign country" in a safe belonging to Epstein.
Response flowed in online, with many speculating this will force Epstein to flip on those higher than him (hint: ryhmes with Flinton):
THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY! ✅
Only while they last.
