IF… Epstein had anything on Trump, he would have used it to against him already… That’s how Blackmail works.

The late Epstein’s banishment by Trump from the Palm Beach, Fla., club appears to have occurred months before Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to state criminal charges in Florida, which included paying for sexual services from a 14-year-old girl.
But it also seems to have happened more than two years after a state grand jury charged Epstein with soliciting prostitution.
The new book “The Grifter’s Club: Trump, Mar-a-Lago, and the Selling of the Presidency,” also says that despite claims to the contrary by Trump’s company, Epstein had been himself a member of Mar-a-Lago before he was banned.
A Trump Organization official last year denied that Epstein, who had a luxurious residence in Palm Beach, had been a dues-paying club member after the investor was arrested in Juy 2019 on child sex trafficking charges.
Epstein died a month later in a Manhattan federal jail from what authorities have ruled was a suicide by hanging.
At the time, Trump did not reveal publicly what led to his falling out with Epstein, whom he said he had not spoken to for up to 15 years.
