    Prosecutor in 2009 Epstein Case Said Donald Trump Was the ONLY ONE Who Helped Him

    Prosecuting attorney Bradley Edwards was interviewed in December 2018 in Palm Beach, Florida shortly after settling a court case he had with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

    The Palm Beach Daily News reported at that time –
    The #MeToo movement may have finally caught up with billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
    The 65-year-old politically-connected money manager on Tuesday admitted he sued Bradley Edwards to punish the attorney for successfully representing young women who claim Epstein sexually assaulted them at his Palm Beach mansion more than a decade ago.
    Epstein’s admission, his apology and his payment of an undisclosed amount of money to Edwards brought an abrupt end to what promised to be a salacious trial minutes before it was to begin in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

    After the settlement was announced, attorney Edwards was interviewed outside the courthouse. He shared much about the case and then answered the interviewer’s question about whether Donald Trump was somehow related to the case since Epstein was a reportedly a friend of Trump.

    Question from reporter: Our current President has had relationships with Epstein in the past and there are those, Katy Johnson and maybe other victims who’ve accused Trump of being involved in things like this.
    In my experience, Trump supporters will not listen to anything along those lines. Obviously we’re not in the court of law here right now, but are those claims, although that case was dropped, it was dropped before it went to court. In your opinion as a lawyer, in your experience is there anything you can say as to the validity of those claims and whether there will be anything more about that?
    Edwards: Nothing at all. The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk. I’ll give you as much time as you want. I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.
    Reporter: Do you have any information on James Patterson’s claims that Trump had Epstein kicked out of Mar-a-logo?
    Edwards: I definitely have heard that.

    Bill Clinton took 26 flights on the ‘Lolita Express’ (one of Epstein’s private aircraft) to Jeff’s island called ‘Orgy Island’ and/or ‘Slave Island’.

    “What the president has done is politically brilliant.” 

    One House Democrat told Tapper the showdown between the White House and “the Squad” served Trump’s interests. “The president won this one,” the unnamed Democrat said. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”

    Donald J. Trump
    @realDonaldTrump

    New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that “Trump” numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50%. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020

    I am grateful for the (suicide) Squad as well.  This maneuver by the President is brilliant.  There is even hope that some people will actually check out the ‘policies’ of the Democrat Party, and in so doing realize the folly of supporting the insanity of globalism, which equates to totalitarianism.
