Bombshell video shows Epstein and Trump discussing women while partying with models at Mar-a-Lago in 1992
After the financier was arrested recently, the president made it a point to say that he had a falling out with him and cut him off from his life
Just days after President Donald Trump said that he was "not a fan" of New York financier and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, a video footage has surfaced showing the two wealthy men laughing, pointing at and talking about women present at a party in Mar-a-Lago.
Epstein was arrested by federal agents on July 6 in New Jersey after his return from a Paris trip and was charged with child sex trafficking in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1591. He is suspected of sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York.
The videotapes, from November 1992, were released by MSNBC from its archives, showing Trump and Epstein partying at the president's Florida estate, more than a decade before Epstein pleaded guilty to felony prostitution charges in Florida.
The new charges against Epstein suggest the Department of Justice's attempt to redeem its 2008 decision where a top federal prosecutor cut a questionable plea deal with the financier then accused of engaging in sex with dozens of underage girls.
Although police found evidence suggesting he had regularly molested and trafficked dozens of underage girls, he was handed a sentence of just 13 months of part-time custody in county jail.
President Trump, in the wake of Epstein's recent arrest, spoke to the media at the White House, saying that Epstein was just "a fixture" in Palm Beach and that his relationship with him was no different than anyone else in their elite circle.
"I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him. I had a falling out with him a long time ago. I wasn’t a fan. I was not a fan of his. That I can tell you," Trump said last week.
He may have had a falling out with the financier, but the tapes released by the television network appear to show their intimate equation, with Trump appearing to give Epstein a lot of personal attention.
Reports state that the footage was shot in 1992 by MSNBC for Faith Daniels’ talk show 'A Closer Look' for a profile of the newly-divorced Trump. In the clips the future president can be seen surrounded by cheerleaders for the Buffalo Bills, in town for a game against the Miami Dolphins.
Watching Trump grab these women is even more revealing than him hanging out with Epstein https://t.co/kRvLVS0u4J— Roland Scahill (@rolandscahill) July 17, 2019
The tapes also show Trump walking through a corridor to greet Epstein and two other guests at the party as he says: "Come on in... Go inside." The footage later shows Epstein and Trump talking as they watch the women on the dance floor and point towards them. At times it is difficult to decipher what they say, however, Trump at one point can be seen gesturing towards a woman and appears to say to Epstein: "Look at her, back there. … She’s hot," as Epstein reacts with a smile and nods.
The future president at the time then points to the woman and says something into Epstein's ear that causes the financier to double over with laughter.
Epstein, last week, pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against him and faces at least 45 years of imprisonment if convicted. His attorneys have proposed a whopping $77 million bail for the billionaire along with house arrest. A Manhattan judge Monday postponed Epstein's bail hearing till Thursday, saying he needed more time to think about it in light of fresh accounts of new victims.
