An article from the New York Post exposed Chuck Schumer’s former ties to Jeffrey Epstein.
Sen. Chuck Schumer â€” whoÂ called on Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to resignÂ and said President Trump should â€œanswerâ€ for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein â€” accepted thousands of dollars in donations from the alleged pedophile throughout the 1990s, The Post has learned.
Federal Election CommissionÂ records showÂ that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997, first as a US congressman from New York and then when he was vying to be the stateâ€™s senator in 1998, an election he won
Epstein â€” who was arrested Saturday andÂ charged with sex trafficking and a related conspiracy countfor allegedly sexually abusing a vast network of underage girls â€”Â also gave $10,000Â to Victory in New York, a joint fundraising committee established by Schumer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
EpsteinÂ gave an additional $5,000Â to Win New York, a Schumer-associated joint committee that benefited the Liberal Party of New York state.
Both of Epsteinâ€™s donations to the committees came in October 1998 â€” and look to have primarily benefited the DSCC and the Liberal Party of New York, as Epstein would have already met the $2,000 limit on donating individually to Schumer.
At the time, donors could give $1,000 to a candidate per election â€” once in the primary and again in the general.
That means Schumer and Schumer-linked entities received a combined $22,000.
Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro responded, â€œWhile 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.â€
I want to begin by saying I am very happy that he is donating the $22,000 to the anti-sex trafficking groups.
With that being said this is still a major news story. How Epstein got his wealth and who he was friends with is a major piece to figuring out just how much criminal activity he was apart of.
