Epstein Victims File a Lawsuit Accusing the FBI of Enabling Sex Trafficking

A dozen victims of Jeffrey Epstein sued the U.S. government Wednesday, accusing the FBI of allowing and enabling his sex trafficking for two decades.

The anonymous victims alleged that the FBI had received credible tips about Epstein’s sex trafficking operation as early as 1996 but did not investigate them. 

A probe finally began in 2006, the suit says, but ended once Epstein pleaded guilty to a soliciting prostitution charge in Florida and was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The suit claims the FBI continued to ignore tips until Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges in 2019. He killed himself in prison months later.
