If You Flew Epstein's 'Lolita Express,' the Feds Want to Talk to You

(Bloomberg) -- After Jeffrey Epstein’s latest arrest on sex trafficking charges, some famous people may be squirming. His notorious little black book and private-jet manifests contained a long list of boldface names, including Victoria’s Secret founder Leslie Wexner and former president Bill Clinton.

U.S. prosecutors on Monday encouraged anyone with information about Epstein’s conduct to come forward, not just potential victims. To the socialites, celebrities and politicians who attended lavish parties at Epstein’s homes in Manhattan or Palm Beach in the early 2000s -- or hitched rides on his private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express” by the tabloids -- the request carried a clear message: Come talk to us before we seek you out.

“You would much rather be visiting the Department of Justice and engaging a conversation about what you saw rather than making the DoJ find you,” said Jacob Frenkel, a former federal prosecutor now at Dickinson-Wright. “There’s a much greater potential for influencing the parameters of an interview and the scope of cooperation by going in voluntarily than becoming a compulsory guest” of the government, he said.

Considering the dozens of alleged victims and hundreds of names on Epstein’s contact list, the Epstein affair could be far from over. Some of the alleged victims have claimed they were farmed out to other men.

Although the alleged crimes date back to 2002, new information continues to arise. Epstein’s little black book was published by Gawker in 2015, years after he pleaded guilty in Florida for soliciting an underage prostitute. On Saturday the FBI, using a crowbar on one of the most expensive properties in Manhattan, executed a search warrant on Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse. Agents gathered photographs of underage girls in suggestive poses, according to prosecutors.

1. Well, that's an interesting tactic.

I wonder who will cal them. I'm guessing there are some worried folks out there right about now.

4. Why did they include Clinton but leave out the fact that Trump also flew on Epstein's plane?

5. Has anyone thought to do a blacklight search of that plane?

Just saying, I have a hard time sitting in movie theater seats. Everyone on that list knew Epstein's reputation. Why they hell would they risk it? Pretty gross if you ask me.

6. If these "passengers" had any sense. . .

they'd preempt subpoenas and call the FBI immediately and agree to be interviewed.

Of course, only the innocent ones would do that (presumably), and so the FBI would focus its efforts on those they knew flew with Epstein and who didn't come forward. This may be fantastically embarrassing, and I love the idea of these people squirming under the third degree. (Do they do the third degree anymore? And what is it, anyway?)

Bill Clinton already issued a statement. He should lead the way and agree to be interviewed.

And, as difficult as it is likely to be, I hope more women come forward.

This is going to drag on through the rest of this year and into 2020. And you just know Barr is going to try to throw bags full of wrenches into the works.
