Judge who authorized raid of Mar-a-Lago represented Jeffrey Epstein's pilots, his scheduler and a "Yugoslavian sex slave"
The federal magistrate judge who signed off on FBI's raid of Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago mansion just so happens to be the same guy
who represented several employees of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, as well as a "Yugoslavian sex slave."
Bruce Reinhart reportedly worked to protect Epstein's Lolita Express pilots, his scheduler and others while pretending to "prosecute" Epstein. Reinhart played a critical role in securing immunity for Epstein's entourage, in essence. (Related: Remember when it was revealed
that MIT and The New York Times
were involved in Epstein's pedophilic activities?)
Now, Reinhart is going after Trump, whose resort was ransacked in an "unannounced" search earlier this week. Reinhart used to work at a local U.S. Attorney's office in Florida, but now runs a private practice that a lawsuit alleges is breaking various Department of Justice (DOJ) policies.
For one, Reinhart appears to be using information from his previous job to enrich himself in the private sector. He is also a longtime contributor to establishment political campaigns, including Barack Hussein Obama's 2008 run against John McCain, and Jeb Bush's 2015 campaign against Trump.
The Epstein pilots that Reinhart helped throughout his tenure include Larry Visoski, David Rodgers, Larry Morrison and Bill Hammond. He also helped scheduler Sarah Kellen and Yugoslavian sex slave Nadia Marcinkova.
Reinhart started working with Epstein's entourage just one day after launching his private sector endeavors
In 2019, the Miami Herald
basically blew the lid on Reinhart's questionable-at-best integrity when he went from working at the South Florida U.S. Attorney's Office to going private.
The switch happened on New Year's Day in 2008. And just one day later, Reinhart was already busy defending Epstein's associates, helping them to "receive federal immunity for allegedly trafficking underage girls."
"Did Jeffrey Epstein offer prosecutors anything in return for his sweetheart deal?" asked writer Polly Sigh on Twitter, linking to the Herald
report. "Bruce Reinhart went from prosecuting Epstein to representing Epstein's accomplices who then also received immunity for trafficking underage girls."
report explained in detail how Reinhart switched sides – or so it seemed at the time – from going after Epstein to trying to protect his legacy. Reinhart opened a limited liability company (LLC) in Florida to make it all happen, and his endeavor was a success.
Several of Epstein's victims sued Reinhart after learning about his betrayal, to which Reinhart responded that he never did anything unethical or improper. Under penalty of perjury, Reinhart swore that he had no involvement with the team investigating Epstein, and thus knew nothing of the confidential information concerning the case.
Former supervisors at the U.S. Attorney's Office where Reinhart previously worked, however, filed a court paper contradicting Reinhart's claim. That paper explains that "while Bruce E. Reinhart was an assistant U.S. attorney, he learned confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter."
Reinhart responded to this by stating that he is not representing Epstein, but rather the people who allowed and helped Epstein to traffic children and commit other atrocities. This is apparently an important distinction for him to make.
Numerous other complaints were filed against Reinhart in the years that followed, alleging that the Epstein case may have gone off the rails because of Reinhart's influence on federal prosecutors.
"The Miami Herald
submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for the investigation, but the Justice Department denied the request, so it's not clear what the investigation entailed," the Herald
report further explains.
's Chris Menahan puts it like this – and he is probably not wrong:
"We're living under the most corrupt regime in U.S. history."
