FBI Agents Raid Epstein’s ‘Pedophile Island’

Shelby Talcott on August 12, 2019

FBI agents raided Jeffrey Epstein’s Virgin Islands home Monday, two days after the alleged child sex trafficker committed suicide in a Manhattan jail.

Epstein was arrested in July on sex trafficking charges. He was a convicted sex offender in Florida and had previously served time in jail for procuring a minor for prostitution. The multi-millionaire was accused of sexually exploiting girls as young as 14 in his New York City and Florida homes, and died of an apparent suicide Saturday morning.

The private island is called Little St. James, but many have referred to it as “Pedophile Island.” Residents on St. Thomas, another island, were concerned about the suspicion and security at Epstein’s private home, CNBC reported.

Some of the accusers have said that Epstein used the island to have sex with minors, the Washington Examiner reported. Footage by some news outlets showed agents landing on the island, where some got into golf carts and others began to scuba dive in the water.

The search came hours after Attorney General Bill Barr said that he was “appalled” by Epstein’s apparent suicide and told co-conspirators that they “should not rest easy.”

“This sex trafficking case was very important to the Department of Justice and to me personally,” Barr said during a speech Monday in New Orleans. “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.”

Epstein’s apparent suicide came just one day after a federal judge in New York unsealed documents from a previous lawsuit against Epstein. The documents implicated multiple high-profile individuals as being involved in an international sex trafficking ring of minors. Former Democratic New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Prince Andrew and former Democratic Sen. George Mitchell are among those implicated in the documents.

The FBI, the attorney general and the inspector general have opened up probes into Epstein’s death, Barr said in a statement Saturday.

  • And how much evidence linking some Democrats to his sex island will disappear? Like it did when they raided the Clinton compound! Oh wait they, the Clinton's were tipped off regarding that raid. And had removed almost everything!

  • We will never know the truth and no one will pay. Business as usual for the what passes now for humans. All involved are nothing more than bottom feeders, and that is a insult to bottom feeders. Not a brave man or woman in the bunch not in any office anywhere, or in the news, back in the good old days the news would hunt this kind of story down now they help hide the truth, and spread lies. Burn in hell all of you. Billy and Killery we all know you are dirty. So That ship has sailed. Don't try to spin this any other way. Obama you too.

  • Well the Clinton's, for sure wanted Epstein dead. So that means the FBI wanted him dead, and for sure no more evidence to be turned up. The day they pried the door open on Epstein's NY apartment (when ringing the door bell for the butler would have been easier) they needed to be on the island. Just another display of premeditated incompetence.

  • What a joke! This will be the FBI’s second sweep. The first one was to move anything important to safe keeping and the second was for director Wrays photo opp to show nothing’s there incriminating anyone. What an obvious sham.

  • They should have been on that island the day he was incarcerated but they took their sweet time isn't that strange? How long does it take corrupt police, FBI and politicians who don't want to get caught to clean up. We will never know the truth!

  • Exactly! The Feds could have EASILY raided his island the day he was arrested yet no one questioned this publicly as far as I know. Corruption is so rampant in this country and I believe the Clintons are absolutely involved i this coverup for reasons we all know about. This is ridiculous. Makes me sick.
