Ivanka Trump makes bizarre claim that being dumped by Nordstrom protects her ‘integrity’

Published

on

A spokesperson for Ivanka Trump dismissed reports that retailer Nordstrom was dropping the presidential daughter’s namesake line of apparel and footwear, stating that company values their integrity as much as profits, reports Racked.

Earlier in the week, the fashion chain based in the Northwest said it would no longer carry the Ivanka Trump line due to declining sales and customer pressure, pulling clothing off the racks and deeply discounting them.

In response, a spokesperson for Trump’s company issued a statement obliquely referencing the loss of sales to Nordstrom, saying, “We believe that the strength of a brand is measured not only by the profits it generates, but the integrity it maintains.”

“The women behind the brand represent a diverse group of professionals and we are proud to say that the Ivanka Trump brand continues to embody the principles upon which it was founded,” the statement continued.

The decline of Trump’s signature apparel and footwear line has coincided with a large scale boycott campaign called Grab Your Wallet, asking consumers to avoid purchasing anything with the Trump name on it in response to new President Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and horrific comments about women.

Jeffrey Epstein spent almost all of his time abusing underage girls: ‘It was his full-time job,’ says victim’s lawyer

Published

Jeffrey Epstein apparently did nothing but sexually abuse underage girls, according to one victim's attorney.

The sources of the financier's wealth are murky, as he had only one known client -- women's clothing magnate Les Wexner -- but attorney Brad Edwards said that seems to have freed Epstein up to engage in nonstop predatory conduct, reported Vanity Fair.

“It was his full-time job,” said attorney Brad Edwards. “We have not found anyone who has provided information about a legitimate business he was engaged [in].”

One Wall Street source with direct knowledge of Epstein's income told the magazine that he provided “tax advice and estate planning” to rich clients, such as Apollo Global Management founder Leon Black, by drawing on his experience with offshore funds.

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

on

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.
