On Monday, the Department of Justice announced the team that is leading the prosecution of alleged child sex trafficker and billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein will include disgraced former FBI Director James Comey’s daughter, Maurene Comey.
At a press conference, Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said Maurene is “part of the public corruption unit handling the case” against the “well-connected and wealthy” investment tycoon.
According to a Washington Examiner report:
Maurene Comey, an assistant U.S. attorney, was named alongside Alex Rossmiller and Alison Moe as the prosecutors assisting Berman with the case. James Comey, who was fired as FBI director in 2017 by President Trump, had been a U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York before he became deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush.
In 2018, James Comey revealed his wife Patrice “very much wanted Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president.”
He also said he was “pretty sure” all of his children “wanted Clinton to defeat Trump” in the 2016 presidential election and added that “there was a lot of passion” in his house for Clinton’s victory.
Comey’s wife and daughters also reportedly attended the ‘Women’s March’ shortly after President Trump was inaugurated.
Epstein was charged by prosecutors with conspiracy and with sex trafficking of underage girls, and faces up to 45 years behind bars. Prosecutors consider him a flight risk and have asked a judge to keep Epstein behind bars pending his trial.
During the raid on Epstein’s Manhattan mansion, investigators say they seized an “extraordinary volume” of photographs of apparently underage girls. –Washington Examiner
