Questions about sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and his client list are still swirling around the country.
Details about Epstein’s activities and those who were along for the ride remain unanswered after his questionable suicide in federal prison.
There are now splits in the Democrat Party and undercurrents of outright revolution between various factions in Joe Biden’s party as the Epstein sex scandal comes back to public attention.
Many powerful and influential Democrats have been scurrying for cover against allegations they are connected to Jeffrey Epstein and his infamous island.
Bill Clinton, for example, took multiple trips on Epstein’s private jet “Lolita Express” to his private island.
Shockingly, the Clinton family was so close they even invited Epstein’s madam Ghislaine Maxwell to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Now another Democrat President, Barack Obama, is being tied to Epstein by way of former White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler.
CNBC recently reported, “Sex predator Jeffrey Epstein was involved in establishing a client relationship between Obama White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler and JPMorgan Chase in February 2019, four months before he was arrested on federal child sex trafficking charges.”
The bank has tried to claim that it had severed all ties with Epstein, but a recent court filing suggested that was not true.
In fact, Epstein was revealed to be behind the push to get the Obama White House Counsel the bank role.
The court filing from the Virgin Islands claimed, “Even after his exit right up until his arrest in 2019, JPMorgan continued to work with Epstein. Epstein was involved in the establishment of a customer relationship with Kathryn Ruemmler.”
The document went on to reveal that Epstein’s assistant, Leslie Groff, offered to make the introduction between Ruemmler and top JP Morgan executive Mary Erdoes.
The filing further claimed, “Erdoes escalated the referral to Stacey Friedman, JPMorgan’s General Counsel, who responded ‘she is a rock star litigator at Latham. I would think she would be a great client.’”
Ruemmler’s connection to Epstein first surfaced when she was found listed on Epstein’s calendar.
The Wall Street Journal reported the two were close enough for Epstein to know to alert his staff to have “avocado sushi rolls” ready for her in advance of any meeting.
And when setting up a flight for Ruemmler, Epstein told one of his assistants, “See if there is a first-class seat. If so upgrade her.”
Ruemmler has admitted, “I regret ever knowing Jeffrey Epstein.”
When Ruemmler was part of the Obama administration, she shouldered much of the blame for the IRS scandal when Conservative organizations were targeted by the administration.
Ruemmler gave Obama plausible deniability by claiming she never told him about the IRS Inspector General’s audit.
Of course, we now know Epstein was connected to many power brokers within the Democrat Party, as well as the world’s elites.
That’s why many on the Left have been so eager for the Epstein story to disappear for good.
But now there appears to be a growing power struggle within the upper echelons of the Democrat party, which has some seemingly ready to risk bringing the list back to Americans’ attention.
Some are starting to wonder if the split might just be a shot across the bow from the Biden camp in a desperate effort to save Hunter and possibly Joe from jail?
Or does it mean, as some top political observers have said, the Bidens are about to get thrown to the wolves?
