Former President Donald Trump had his home at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, raided yesterday by FBI agents, who were apparently carrying out the search for classified documents that Trump apparently took with him when he left the White House.
Turns out, the Florida federal magistrate judge, who authorized the FBI to go ahead with the raid – was the former lawyer of pedophile billionaire Jefferey Epstein’s employees.
According to a report from the Miami Herald, the year that Judge Bruce Reinhart was elevated to magistrate judge – 2018 – had represented several Epstein employees, including Epstein’s pilots, his scheduler Sarah Kellen and Nadia Marcinkova – who Epstein once described as his” Yugoslavian sex slave.”
Kellen and Marcinkova were granted immunity as part of a deal with federal prosecutors in 2007, after Epstein was allowed to plead guilty to state charges instead of federal crimes. Ultimately, the pedophile only served a measly 13 months in county jail and was later granted work release.
The Miami Herald reported that the day after Reinhart resigned from his post at the South Florida US Attorney’s Office, he became the legal representative of Epstein’s employees.
The New York Post reported:
Epstein, who was found dead in August 2019 of an apparent suicide in the Manhattan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges, had hired a stable of high-powered lawyers for his defense in the late 2000s, including former independent counsel Kenneth Starr.
Ten months after starting work for Epstein’s co-conspirators, according to Federal Election Commission records, Reinhart gave $1,000 directly to the Obama campaign and another $1,000 to its fundraising arm, the Obama Victory Fund. Though the records show the judge made mostly small-dollar donations to his law firm’s political action committee in subsequent years, Reinhart also donated $500 to Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign in November 2015.
Reinhart was later named in a civil lawsuit by two of Epstein’s victims that accused him of violating Justice Department policies by switching sides in the middle of the Epstein investigation, suggesting he had spilled inside information about the probe to build favor with the notorious defendant, the Herald reported in 2018.
In a 2011 affidavit, Reinhart denied he had done anything improper and insisted that since he was not involved in the federal investigation of Epstein, he was not privy to inside information about the case.
However, in a 2013 court filing, Reinhart’s former colleagues contradicted him, saying that he had “learned confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter” while employed by the US Attorney’s Office. Reinhart noted to the Herald in response that a complaint filed against him by a lawyer for Epstein’s victims had been dismissed by the Justice Department.
During his time as a federal prosecutor, Reinhart “managed a docket that covered the full spectrum of federal crimes, including narcotics, violent crime, public corruption, financial frauds, child pornography and immigration.”
Ironic that Reinhart oversaw cases pertaining to child pornography during his time as a federal prosecutor – and the day he goes into private practice – he represents a pedophile.
Jeffery Epstein was found dead in his cell in 2019, after being charged with a bevy of crimes, including child sex-trafficking.
Epstein apparently managed to hang himself from the bottom bunk of a cell that was supposed to be watched – the cameras conveniently failing right around the time he “killed” himself.
