‘Pedophile Island’ is the name locals use for Jeffrey Epstein’s Caribbean compound: report

Published

on

US Virgin Islands reporter Kellie Meyer tweeted that the first time she passed Jeffrey Epstein’s island when she moved to the area the boat captain called it “pedophile island” and told her to stay away from it. That was only the first time she heard the island called that. She noted she heard it several times after that.

In a series of tweets, Meyer showed a photo of the island, saying that when the flag is raised, it’s known that Epstein is on the island, but after he was arrested this week, the flag disappeared.

“Odd with the flag raising,” Meyer tweeted.” Like the Queen of England does. But for the King of the US Virgin Islands (?). Not so much. Locals tell me they don’t want anything to do with him or want his name tied to this US territory.”

She went on to say that the locals also won’t go on camera talking about Epstein.

“As much as the locals share the stories, none are willing to go on [camera],” Meyer tweeted. “Many, at least in the area of his island and office, fear retaliation. Whether current employee, former or tied to him in some way. To them, he still holds much power here.”

Epstine was arrested over the weekend in New York and is being charged with a litany of crimes involving sex with young girls.

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

Nicolle Wallace breaks down the impeachment moment ‘women will be talking about for years’

Published

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
