Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Well, isn’t this interesting:  It seems President Biden(‘s handlers) CIA chief met with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein after Epstein’s conviction.  There are some other interesting names on that roster, too.  (Original WSJ story paywalled.)

Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns had three meetings with Jeffrey Epstein in 2014, when the top spy official was deputy secretary of state and after Epstein was convicted of child sex exploitation, documents indicate.

Epstein’s “black book” of contacts and flight logs shows that Burns first met with Epstein in Washington before Burns visited the convicted sex offender in his Manhattan townhouse, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. 

Burns, who became CIA director under Joe Biden  in 2021, met with Epstein while he was preparing to leave his position in the government, CIA spokeswoman Tammy Kupperman Thorp said.

“The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector,” she said. “They had no relationship.”

Right, and if you believe that, I got a bridge to sell you.

Here’s the onion:

Other notable names the Journal reported l in Epstein’s calendar include Obama White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler, who met dozens of times with Epstein after leaving the administration but before joining Goldman Sachs as a top attorney, as well as professor and activist Noam Chomsky and Bard College President Leon Botstein.

The outlet could not verify whether every meeting scheduled in Epstein’s logs took place, and the documents are unclear about the purpose of the meetings.

As far as I know we’ve never seen a full list of visitors to Epstein’s infamous Pedo Island.  But I’m curious, why did all these government (and Democrat, let’s not shy away from saying it) officials feel the need to meet with a known sex trafficker and registered sex offender?  I’m not part of the “OMG RHEEEE PEDOPHILE” crowd whenever anyone on the left says anything objectionable, because, honestly, they can’t all be pedophiles, but they do all say stupid things all the time.

But I’ll tell you what I think:  I think this smells like a cover-up.  We know Bill Clinton visited Pedo Island.  But we don’t know (yet) who else did.  And that might be some interesting information.
