Act Two: the Epstein Investigations by the FBI

In Florida, back in 2007, delays to the Epstein’s trial were caused by the Federal probe, and also by a Plea Deal in the making.


As we can see in the HEAVILY redacted material from the FBI Vault, FBI was actively conducting an investigation, following leads, making interviews etc.
The jury trial was about to begin in Florida.
And the Civil suits are beginning to line up.
Soon, the lawsuits were multiplying.
Finally, the news break: Jeffrey Epstein had pleaded guilty.
 While this seems like a good thing, wait until you get to know the details of this “sweetheart deal”.
Some of the terms: 18 months in Jail (actually 13, and he left jail to work), plus one year House Arrest. He will be registered as a sex-offender for life.
BUT: the Feds agreed to drop their investigation on him. This was BAD.
 The Palm Beach Post immediately detected how unfair the deal was to the victims.
Soon the calls started for the deal to be quashed.
The details of his jail privileges keep pouring out.
 By that moment, 12 suits against him were ongoing.
 Continued calls – if not for the quashing of the deal, at least for the disclosure of the details of the deal.
The `Palm Beach Post joins the fight for the release of the “highly unusual” and “unprecedented” agreement.
Meanwhile, Epstein’s team fights the suits with its characteristic brutality.
 Former Epstein’s employee is charged with obstruction of Justice, for withholding information that could have altered the fate of the case.

End of Act two.

When and how does the FBI get involved. Family court returns juvenile victims to their abusers every day because of this standing rule. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvA5hfTdsWI&t=24s

Epstein’s…Tale acts 1 and 2 are engrossing, oddly entertaining… And completely disturbing.

Thanks for posting the article series Parlato!

It would be helpful to have the newspaper dates included. I didn’t know that Epstein’s egg-shaped d!ck was public information for so long (a period of time, not the length of his member).

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
