Lawyer Requests Investigation Into FBI’s ‘Bungled Examination’ Of Epstein

An attorney representing several women who say they are survivors of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein sent a letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) requesting an investigation into the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) “seriously bungled examination” of Epstein.

Lawyer Jennifer Freeman, an attorney working with Marsh Law Firm, who says she helps guide many survivors of Epstein’s human trafficking conspiracy, recently wrote a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

Freeman wrote that the FBI “failed” to investigate allegations involving Epstein’s violation of children and other additional criminal acts. She accused the FBI of doing “too little” to investigate and prosecute Epstein’s human trafficking.

One of Freeman’s clients, Maria Farmer, reported to the FBI in 1996 that Epstein and his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell threatened and violated her while committing other crimes against minors and young women.

Farmer added that Epstein allegedly processed, produced, and distributed lewd images of children.

The FBI did not respond to Farmer’s report until 10 years after. In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to state crimes, serving a little more than a year in a work-release program.

“After the slap-on-the-wrist sentence, Epstein and others continued their criminal enterprise, while the FBI did little more for another decade,” Freeman said.

In July 2019, Epstein was arrested on human trafficking charges. He died a month later in a New York jail cell. Maxwell was also sentenced to 20 years in prison for human trafficking.

Freeman’s letter comes after some of Epstein’s records were recently published showing that prominent government officials, such as Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns, met with Epstein on various occasions.

Freeman accused the FBI and U.S. government of a “dereliction of duty” in protecting the American people against Epstein’s human trafficking conspiracy.

“The FBI is said to hold itself to the highest of standards and integrity, grounding its initials in its motto of ‘Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity,’ and serving as the ‘lead agency for enforcing civil rights laws, aggressively investigat[ing] … human trafficking and involuntary servitude …,’” Freeman said.

“However, we are aware of 15 no investigation of the FBI and certainly no public disclosure or explanation,” she added.

“We hereby request that a full and fair investigation be promptly launched into the FBI’s seriously bungled examination and mismanagement of the crimes committed by Epstein and others,” she concluded.
