(The Wrap) The FBI needs to pony up its records on Jeffrey Epstein — at least, so says Radar Online, which is suing the bureau after allegedly being stonewalled on a Freedom of Information Act request.
In the lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in New York, Radar Online asks for the production of the bureau’s records concerning “the agency’s investigation and prosecution of Jeffrey Edward Epstein for sexually trafficking underage women. Defendant FBI has withheld these records despite a properly filed FOIA request.”
“Jeffrey Epstein is a billionaire financier, philanthropist, and sex offender. In 2005, Epstein became the subject of an undercover sex trafficking investigation by Palm Beach, Florida police and the FBI. Dozens of underage women were trafficked by Epstein to perform sexual acts on him as well as his friends,” the suit reads.
