Lawyer Demands DOJ Provide Answers to Victims About Why the FBI Failed to Protect Epstein Victims

In a letter to the Department of Justice, the attorney for five women who claim they were Jeffrey Epstein’s victims asks how the FBI completely failed to look into the well-connected businessman.

Just Shocking

The FBI was informed of the charges against Epstein in the 1990s, according to the letter. It was submitted last week to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

However, despite the information, the FBI did not take any major steps.

In the letter, attorney Jennifer Freeman states, as legal counsel for numerous individuals who survived Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) needs to correctly, properly, and effectively examine the sex trafficking of countless girls and young women.

The ladies have urged the DOJ to look into the FBI’s mishandling of the Epstein investigation and demand a rationale for why it took several years for Epstein to receive real legal action.

One woman, Maria Farmer, stated she informed the FBI that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell assaulted her. She observed other evidence of them performing numerous and severe sexual abuse crimes, involving direct sexual abuse, targeting minors and defenseless young women.

Farmer claimed she saw young girls coming and going from Epstein’s residence when she was working for him in New York City.

Epstein and Maxwell later mistreated her when she was employed on a project in Ohio. She claimed when she questioned them regarding stealing pictures of her sister, 11, who was barely dressed, they promised to destroy all of her artwork.

FBI Did Nothing

Deathly scared, Farmer detailed the criminal activity of Epstein and Maxwell to the NYPD Sixth Precinct on August 29, 1996.

The NYPD claimed although they were able to deal with local fire hazards, they were powerless to stop other potentially unlawful acts that were taking place elsewhere, such as assault and theft committed in Ohio and other places.
