The American public has been told next to nothing about the Jeffrey Epstein coverup. Here, veteran journalist Whitney Webb estimates the public knows less than 5 percent of the scandal. The rest has been hidden and left untold, largely to placate the rich and wealthy guilty parties.
Webb offers us a glimpse into just how deep this deceit extends. Much of what she discusses is based on a recent, three-hour+ interview she did with Maria Farmer, who filed the earliest criminal complaint against Epstein back in 1996 with the FBI. Farmer says the FBI already knew what she told them about the human trafficking involving her and her younger sister, but declined to take the hard evidence she offered to back up her claims. In other words, the FBI appeared unwilling to proceed against Epstein, or his rich and famous associates, including Les Wexner, the former CEO of Victoria’s Secret, who served as Epstein’s protector.
On a daily basis, Farmer saw between five and 10 girls “going upstairs,” in Florida, to be raped and molested by Epstein. She says she saw kids in diapers taken to his lair, although most were aged 12 through 16. They numbered in the thousands. The majority can no longer be found, as many as 500 in Florida alone. Farmer believes some of those girls died from drug overdoses, while others were murdered by Epstein or his associates. She says she was roughed up at one point by a bodyguard, who now works in Hollywood for the actor Will Smith.
Farmer endured death threats for many years, forcing her to move around frequently, from one small town to another. She says Epstein’s network extended around the world — with members of the British royal family and Israeli intelligence officers taking part, along with many powerful, global CEOs, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Although Gates claims he didn’t meet Epstein until around 2010, in fact, Gates was already hanging around with Epstein in the 1990s. “There was definitely a relationship there,” says Webb. Others who were extremely close: Bill Clinton and Ivana Trump, President Trump’s ex-wife.
Farmer says “stolen” and trafficked women from Thailand and the Philippines worked as cooks and maids at his resorts in Florida, New York and New Mexico, as well as Paris and in the Caribbean.
Just how complicit has the mainstream media been in covering up the horrible crimes against these women? Vicky Ward, formerly as staffer for Vanity Fair and now at CNN, was one of the first reporters to ever talk with Farmer. Farmer calls her “a true monster,” who told Epstein’s right-hand “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell, over drinks, that Farmer had reported the scam to the FBI. Farmer says she had to send Vicky Ward as well as CNN “cease and desist letters,” after being badgered by both of them. Farmer contends Maxwell is now in hiding in Great Britain, under the protection of the Rothschild family. More from the Last American Vagabond.
Meanwhile, Peter Beard has been found dead, his remains located in a state park close to his home in Montauk on Long Island, New York. Beard, the noted wildlife and nature photographer, was a close friend of Jeffrey Epstein, and supposedly had taken images of many of the guests arriving at Epstein’s resorts and mansions. It’s not clear, at this time, if those images still exist or in what format. Beard had been reported missing since April 1. His remains were found Sunday, April 19, at Camp Hero State Park.
