(FiveNation.com)- An upcoming book by Julie Brown, a Miami Herald reporter, claims that former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr waged a “scorched earth” campaign to persuade federal prosecutors to drop a sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein.
The claim comes from “Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story,” and describes how Starr used his vast political connections in the White House to get the Epstein case reviewed and dropped by the Department of Justice.
It shows just how much influence the dead billionaire sex offender had with some of the most powerful people in the country, and the extent to which his allies would go to defend him even when he had clearly done something terrible.
The book, which The Guardian published a preview of, cites emails and letters sent by Starr and Epstein’s attorney Jay Lefkowitz, in which they revealed that they were campaigning to pressure the Department of Justice to drop the case.
It adds that when Epstein’s attorneys realized they were struggled to achieve their goal, Starr left no stone unturned. He wrote to Deputy Attorney General Mark Filip at the time and accused prosecutors in Epstein’s case of misconduct, claiming that they had created a deal that would benefit their friends.
Starr even went after the head prosecutors in Epstein’s case, accusing Marie Villafana of “manipulating” the negotiations to benefit an associate of her boyfriend. Obviously she denied the story.
