DNC official Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, warned over the weekend that “some of our faves” are likely to be implicated in the sex-trafficking case involving convicted billionaire child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein.
Pelosi tweeted: “This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats.”

Epstein was arrested on Saturday on allegations that he “sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for ‘massages’ and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach,” the Daily Beast reported. “Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.”
Fox News’ Gregg Re reported: “It was unclear exactly to whom Pelosi was referring, but Epstein has long been connected with high-profile figures, including Britain’s Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton. Court documents obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips flying aboard Epstein’s private jet, known as the ‘Lolita Express,’ and apparently ditched his Secret Service detail on some of the excursions. Records showed that President Trump may have flown on the jet at least once.”
The Washington Post reported last year that Trump “barred Epstein from Mar-a-Lago ‘because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,’ according to court documents filed by Edwards.”
