Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a Democratic National Committee official, warned people on Saturday evening that it’s “quite likely that some of our faves are implicated” in the “horrific” sex-trafficking case that Jeffrey Epstein is facing.
Epstein was arrested Saturday in New York on new sex-trafficking charges and is now due in court. He has been accused of paying underage girls for massages and sexually abusing them in his Palm Beach, Florida mansion as well as in New York City. His “Orgy Island” 72-acre private estate in the Virgin Islands is also under heavy scrutiny.
Christin 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. #WeSaidEnough#MeToo

Though Pelosi wasn’t clear on who she was referring to, Epstein has been linked to many high-profile figures, including Britain’s Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton. Fox News obtained court documents in 2016 that showed Clinton took at least 26 private trips on Epstein’s private jet, known as the Lolita Express. On some of these trips Clinton did not bring Secret Service along.
Records also show that President Trump may have flown on this jet at least once. Previously Trump called attention to Bill Clinton’s relationship with Epstein during an interview with Sean Hannity.
“Nice guy — uh, got a lot of problems coming up, in my opinion, with the famous island, with Jeffrey Epstein,” Trump said to Sean Hannity of Fox News in 2015 when discussing the connection between Clinton and Epstein.
"Mark Epstein, Jeffrey's brother, testified in 2009 that Trump flew on Jeffrey's private jet at least once." Video is from CPAC 2015: curious if Donald is relying on Hannity's regurgitation of the 1/15 Gawker exposé, first-hand knowledge, or *cough* both. https://t.co/BOrpoUf3wS pic.twitter.com/zNLu2GOI8s

A 2002 profile of Epstein in New York Magazine had Trump telling a reporter, “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
Trump’s legal team has denied accusations that the two were friends.
According to court documents filed by Bradley Epstein, Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club.” Trump or Mar-a-Lago have not confirmed this claim.
Flight logs show that Bill Clinton flew on the Lolita Express dozens of times.

Julie K. Brown, a Miami Herald investigative reporter, said that Trump and Epstein “went to dinner parties at each other’s houses, Trump was also on his plane. Probably not as much as a lot of other people because, you know, Trump had his own plane.”
Epstein was facing a possible life sentence in 2008 and instead only served 13 months in jail. This was after he pleaded guilty to two lesser state prostitution charges. Prosecutors called this girl a prostitute despite being only 14 years old.
His plea deal included that he had to reach financial settlements with dozens of his victims who were teenagers at the time of being victimized. On top of that he had to register as a sex offender.
