Files released by the FBI revealed that pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was given a lenient plea deal after he ‘provided information to the FBI as agreed upon.’

THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT — In a strange and unexplained move, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced on Thursday that it released a trove of documents from an investigation into billionaire hedge fund manager and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and one of the most notable revelations is that he appears to have worked as an FBI informant, in exchange for a lenient sentence.
After multiple underage girls in Florida reported that they were being paid by a mystery man to have sex with middle-aged men, and all roads led back to Epstein’s mansion, the FBI launched an investigation in 2006. A report from The Guardian noted that federal prosecutors “identified 40 young women who may have been illegally procured by Epstein,” which easily should have resulted in Epstein spending years in prison if as many as half of the women testified against him.
Epstein was also caught running a child sex ring, in which he hosted rape parties for his wealthy friends on his private jet, the Lolita Express, and on his private island, which was referred to as “Orgy Island.”
It should have been a textbook case that would have made the FBI look heroic for putting a serial pedophile behind bars. However, the opposite happened. Epstein agreed to a plea deal for one minor charge in 2008, and he ended up spending just 13 months in prison, out of the 18-month sentence he was given for “soliciting prostitution and procuring a minor for prostitution.” […]
