Chuck Schumer Took Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars In Donations From Jeffrey Epstein

Senator Chuck Schumer accepted thousands of dollars in donations from Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s, according to the NY Post. Schumer has recently been vocal in demanding that President Trump "answer" for his relationship with Epstein, while also urging Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to resign.

FEC records showed that Schumer took in seven $1,000 donations between 1992 and 1997 from Epstein. The donations were accepted first as a US congressman, then later while running for the state's senator.

We reported Sunday night that Epstein had has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005. The new charges claim that "Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for 'massages' and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his residence in Palm Beach."

Epstein also donated $10,000 to Victory in New York, a fundraising committee established between Schumer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

He also donated $5,000 to Win New York, a Schumer-linked joint committee that benefited the Liberal Part of New York State. Both of these donations took place in October 1998 and benefited the Liberal Party of New York, as Epstein had likely already hit his $2,000 limit in donating directly to Schumer.

The NY Post says that Schumer and Schumer-linked entities received $22,000.

A spokesman for Schumer said:

“While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees (PACs), Senator Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups.”

Schumer previously donated $14,200 to charities supporting women after it was revealed he had taken that amount in donations by accused sex predator Harvey Weinstein.

Schumer demanded on Tuesday that Labor Secretary Acosta resign, stating:

“Instead of prosecuting a predator and serial sex trafficker of children, Acosta chose to let him off easy. This is not acceptable. We cannot have, as one of the leading appointed officials in America, someone who has done this.”

Schumer said the DOJ should make its public review of Acosta's handling of the case public.

Finally, Schumer has demanded that Trump elaborate on comments he made in 2002 when he called Epstein a "terrific guy".

Back in 2015, onstage at the annual CPAC conference, Trump said something very interesting about Bill Clinton. "Nice guy," he said. "Got a lot of problems coming up, in my opinion, with the famous island with Jeffrey Epstein. Lot of problems."

Trump knew what he was talking about. Vanity Fair reports that, shortly before CPAC, Trump was approached by David Pecker, who then owned the National Enquirer. Pecker visited Trump and brought along "an issue with a Prince Andrew and Epstein-related cover." They were joined by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

After the meeting, Trump called in Sam Nunberg, who then worked for him. Nunberg told Vanity Fair:

“Michael was sitting in there when I came in, and the issue of the National Enquirer with the pictures of Prince Andrew was on his desk. He said not to tell anyone, but that Pecker had just been there and had brought the issue with him. Trump said that Pecker had told him that the pictures of Clinton that Epstein had from his island were worse."

What makes Vanity Fair's report double fascinating is that the leftist magazine clearly implies that Epstein doesn't have any dirt on Trump himself. On Twitter, leftist users have been tweeting hopefully about how this could ruin Trump's presidency. Vanity Fair knows better. When push comes to shove, this case will involve high-ranking and extremely influential Democrats.

Trump isn’t known to have gone on any trips with Epstein, which would have been out of character. “I don’t think Trump would go to someone else’s property or someone else’s island or villa,” Nunberg said. “He doesn’t even play golf at anyone else’s clubs.”

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, President Trump dismissed his past appearances with Epstein, describing him as a “fixture in Palm Beach” in those years. “I had a falling out with him a long time ago,” he added, though he declined to elaborate. “I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years.”

As I wrote last Sunday, this case will almost certainly end up destroying several careers and private lives -- and rightfully so. Those involved with Epstein don't deserve any better. They're the lowest of the low.
