NEW YORK, NY – August 19, 2019 Assistant United States Attorneys Maurene Comey (James Comey’s daughter), Alison Moe and Alex Rossmiller filed a proposed order of nolle prosequi (term meaning prosecution is voluntarily discontinuing criminal charges).
On July 2, 2019, Jeffrey Epstein was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of minors and one count of sex trafficking of minors.
However, August 10, 2019 Jeffrey Epstein died while in prison. Since he died during the case and a judgment was not issued, U.S. Attorneys state that the indictment must be dismissed.
Maurene Comey, daughter of fired former FBI Director, James Comey, should have recused herself from the case. Based on all the political pressure from the left and her father’s political affiliation, it would be proper for her recusal. Any public perception of impropriety should force a public official to step aside.
President Trump and James Comey have had a very public and bitter feud long before his termination on May 9, 2017. Since Epstein’s indictment, parties on the left have worked hard to connect President Trump to him. According to recently released flight logs, President Trump has been on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane for one trip in 1997 flying from Palm Beach International Airport in Florida to Newark Liberty Intentional Airport. The flight logs state the other passengers on the plane were Glenn and Eva Dubin.
Another court case, Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 v. Estate of Jeffrey Epstein; Sue Roe and Roes 2-10 state that they were afraid to come forward because they had feared and were intimidated by Epstein and his close connections to Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. (Read about that case here.)
Maurene Comey sits in a very difficult position either way. Given that she is one of the United States Attorneys to ask for this order, it reeks of partisanship and allegiance to her father.
In a letter to Judge Richard M. Berman sent with the proposed order of nolle prosequi, U.S. Attorneys state, “As this Office has previously stated publicly, it remains committed to doing its utmost to stand up for the victims who have already come forward, as well as for the many others who have yet to do so.”
After reading this letter, one has to ask how the U.S. Attorneys Office out of the Southern District of New York can be committed to the victims while asking the judge to dismiss the case?
As was reported yesterday, Jeffrey Epstein had signed a new will on August 8, 2019. His estate is worth approximately $578 million. (read about his will here.) A judgment against Epstein would help his victims receive justice and monetary settlements.
