    I dunno, I'll bet this whole thing is a set up to try and harm Trump, when that bombs, I'll bet the media will forget all about Epstein. Too many big name, big money Democrats involved for them to pursue it.

    Judge Denies Bail to Jeffrey Epstein, Says He’s a ‘Danger’ to Community
    Updated 07.18.19 1:02PM ET

    The financier asked for house arrest but will stay in jail until his sex-trafficking trial.

    Jeffrey Epstein will not get to trade in his jail cell for his “gilded cage.”

    A federal judge in New York denied the financier bail on Thursday, ruling that the globe-trotting money man must stay locked up until his trial on sex-trafficking charges because he’s a flight risk and a “danger” to the community.

    The decision is a victory for prosecutors who argued that Epstein was too rich and the charges he faces too serious to let him return to the Manhattan mansion where he allegedly molested dozens of underage girls.

    The proof they offered included a fake Austrian passport and dozens of small diamonds found in a safe, accusations of witness-tampering and suspiciously timed payments to alleged accomplices.

    When Epstein offered to put up a $100 million bond, hire armed guards and a “live-in” trustee, the feds scoffed that he was trying to build his own private prison—a “gilded cage” from which he could easily take flight.

    U.S. District Judge Richard Berman agreed, saying, “I doubt that any bail package can overcome danger to the community.”

    “The decision speaks to the seriousness of the crimes,” Berman said, adding that prosecutors established “clear and convincing evidence” that Epstein could try to go on the lam.

    He said his ruling also took into consideration testimony from two of Epstein’s accusers, Courtney Wild and Annie Farmer, who said they feared his release.

    Epstein, who is being held at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center, displayed no emotion as Berman issued his ruling from the bench. The judge will issue a more detailed written opinion later on Thursday.

    With the bail issue settled, Epstein’s lawyers will likely focus their attention on trying to get the New York indictment thrown out by arguing it violates a sweetheart plea deal he cut with the feds in Florida in 2007.

    He served just 13 months on two state prostitution charges back then, much of it on work release that he allegedly used for sexual hookups. After his release, he tried to fade into obscurity—a plan foiled by a Miami Herald investigation and ongoing litigation by his accusers.
