Michael Wolff: Jeffrey Epstein said Bill Barr was really running the White House -- not 'moron' Trump

Mod: I'm still convinced Epstein was killed by someone looking out for the interests of Donald Trump

Jeffrey Epstein said Bill Barr was really running the White House -- not 'moron' Trump (Raw Story link): A new report from author Michael Wolff claims that billionaire child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein told former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak in 2019 that then-President Donald Trump was not really calling the shots at the White House.

While Barak was visiting Epstein at his Manhattan penthouse, writes Wolff for The Daily Beast, he asked Epstein who was really running the government.

Epstein replied that Trump was "a moron" and was thus obviously not in charge.

"At the moment, Bill Barr is in charge," said Epstein, although he warned that could change at any minute given the way that Trump fired people in his administration.

"It's Donald's pattern," Epstein explained. "He lets someone else be in charge, until other people realize that someone, other than him, is in charge. When that happens, you're no longer in charge."

Epstein went on to claim that Barr decided to become attorney general because he believed he'd make lots of money afterward as a "savior" of Republican presidents who couldn't help getting themselves into legal jeopardy.

"Barr believes he'll get a big payday out of this," said Epstein. "If he keeps Donald in office, manages to hold the Justice Department together, and help the Republican Party survive Donald, he thinks this is worth big money to him. I speak from direct knowledge. Extremely direct. Trust me."

Steve Bannon contacted Jeffrey Epstein over worries about what he would reveal about Trump: new book (Raw Story link): According to a report from Business Insider, former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon had a conversation with billionaire child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein where he admitted that, during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, he feared Epstein would run to the press with stories about the New York real estate mogul.

According to excerpts from Michael Wolff's upcoming book, "Too Famous: The Rich, the Powerful, the Wishful, the Damned, the Notorious - Twenty Years of Columns, Essays and Reporting," Epstein believed he could bargain his way out of criminal charges by investigators by turning over information on both Trump and former president Bill Clinton.

In his book, the author recalls a phone call between Bannon -- who is currently being pressed by the House select committee to testify about the Jan 6th insurrection -- speaking with Epstein and admitting he feared what other secrets the jet-setting financier might expose.

As Business insider reports, "Wolff revealed that months before Epstein's death, he visited the billionaire at his infamous $75 million mansion in New York City," during which he claims he witnessed a phone call between Epstein and Bannon.

"During Wolff's visit, Steve Bannon reportedly called Epstein on the phone and told him that he had feared him during Donald Trump's presidential campaign because he thought the financier knew secrets about Trump," Business Insider is reporting.

  1. If true Bill Barr missed on his calculation. He didn't save anything. The country went into the crapper for 4 years. The country suffered through the worst president in history. And he sure as shit didn't save the GOP from ruin so his time as AG won't be leading to riches.

    1. I don’t recall the exact circumstances, but I do remember Trump stating a number of years ago something to the effect, “Epstein likes the really young ones,” suggesting Trump knew about the under-age girls, and was therefore an accessory to Epstein’s crimes.

      Would Trump put out a hit on a former friend to protect his Presidency? Yes, I believe he is capable of that.

    2. Wonder how many times he raped Ivanka? Such a nauseating excuse of a human being! Makes you want to throw up. Wonder if she will ever tell? Big enough book deal maybe?

    3. Epstein fell under Trump's lack of loyalty to anyone but himself. If he knew Trump at all, this should have been glaringly apparent to him. We may never know for a fact that Trump's sense of self-preservation killed Epstein, but it makes a hell of a lot more sense than Clinton or HRC going after him. Clinton's reputation went before him like a parade. Trump was known as a serial monogamist with bouts of cheating with the next woman in line. So who has more to lose? Pretty easy math.

  2. There is nothing but sleaze and corruption associated with the names Bannon, Trump and Epstein. Funny they should all know each other.

  3. Epstein got what he deserved despite the fatal assumption he could manipulate safety through corrupt legal channels . "Lie down with dogs, get up with fleas" . Are any lawsuits pending from young rape victims ? Satan always devours his victims alive as the famous Goya painting shows .

  5. Bill Barr’s dead daddy “Donald” Barr was also a diddler. He was the “headmaster” (eww) at Dalton School (where Jeffry was hired as a “math teacher” w/out credentials).

    Mr. Epstein was at daddy Barr’s school bc daddy knew Jeff could recruit young victims. The REASON therefore that Billy Barr murdered Jeffry was “TWO FOLD.”

  6. The GOP is taking a page straight from QAnon

    ... So Mandel walked himself through the standard troll protocol: Escalate obnoxious behavior until the target is forced to block you, or in this case, kick you out. Then sanctimoniously declare yourself a victim to your own followers, martyred by the censorious liberals who can't handle the truth bombs you were supposedly dropping.

    Huh. Just like the trolls on the Tattler.

  7. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but Epstein's death was just too suspicious and too convenient. I'm pretty sure Chump was hiding some really nasty information that could have done him real damage. And would Chump have someone murdered to save his ass? Hell yeah. And remember, Chump has a history with women and young girls.

  12. Many say the notion that Epstein was murdered is CT, but Epstein had information that would harm powerful people if released, releasing that information could help Epstein, those who had the most to lose from such a release had complete access to and control over Epstein, many predicted the possibility of Epstein's death while jailed, events occurred in jail that would enable someone to kill him, and he was found dead from causes that were not natural.

    Something more than CT here.

    Ex-Minneapolis officer seeks 41 months in 911 caller's death

    Attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot a woman who called 911 to report a possible rape behind her home are asking a judge to sentence him to 41 months on a manslaughter charge, the lightest penalty recommended under state sentencing guidelines, according to documents filed Thursday.

    Mohamed Noor was initially convicted of third-degree murder and manslaughter in the 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual U.S.-Australian citizen. He was sentenced to 12 1/2 years on the murder count, but last month, the Supreme Court tossed out Noor's murder conviction and sentence, saying the third-degree murder statute doesn't fit the facts of the case.

  24. Video shows officer slamming a Black woman to the ground by her braids, which a witness said he tore out of her scalp.

    A Louisiana deputy gripped a Black woman by the hair so hard that he tore out her braids from her scalp, a witness said, according to Nola.com.

    Witnesses said the deputy was unprovoked and video shows him slamming Shantel Arnold to the ground.

    Arnold stands at 4'8", weighs 100 pounds, and has a missing eye from a car accident from years ago.

    A harrowing video posted to Instagram shows a Louisiana officer pulling a Black woman down to the ground by her hair.
    The video shows the deputy gripping Arnold's wrist as she's thrown to the ground. He jerks her around and then grabs her by the hair before slamming her to the pavement. At the end of the video, the deputy appears to kneel on her back.
