Ehud Barak, head of the Israeli Democratic Party, was caught on camera entering the Manhattan townhouse of Jeffery Epstein with his face hidden, on the same day that a large group of women were seen entering the sex offender's home, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.Gee, why didn't he raise the hood on his coat as well as wear a windbreaker over his face? Sorry, but something about this just doesn't compute. He remains as shameless as he was years ago. And just recently, Breitbart reported:
Epstein was convicted of soliciting a teenage girl for prostitution in 2008 and was indicted last week in connection with allegations that he was involved in the sex trafficking of dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005.
The photos were taken in January 2016, after Epstein arrived in New York from an overseas trip, according to the Daily Mail. At least four young women were seen going into the home within a matter of hours.
At the time, the Daily Mail reported that the four women included friends of Epstein Sue Hamblin and Jennifer Kalin as well as Russian model Lana Pozhidaeva. The fourth women, who remains unidentified, was seen joining Epstein on a trip to Teterborough Airport in New Jersey, where Epstein keeps his plane.
When the photos were taken, the identity of the man seen walking into the house was uncertain, but the Daily Mail has now confirmed that it was Barak. He admitted to the Daily Beast that it was him, but claimed that the visit was innocent.
"I was there, for lunch or chat, nothing else. So what?" said Barak. "I never attended a party with him. I never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls."
Barak told the Daily Beast that he covered his face because of the January New York weather. "It was so cold, the Middle Easterner had to put on a hat."
Senior officials in the opposition Labor and Meretz parties have said that Ehud Barak’s ties to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein have severely impacted the chances of their parties merging with Barak’s Israel Democratic Party, a TV report said Friday.It may be safe to assume they realize it'd look bad at this point if they tried joining forces with Barak. But that's a mighty odd thing to say, that they'd wait until internal Knesset slates are finalized before they "merge" with a party run by such an awful man. If they understand the seriousness of the accusations, surely they don't understand it'd be a major embarrassment and potentially damaging if they formed ties with a man who should be retiring already?
According to leaked conversations, the officials said that any association with the hedge-fund manager, who is suspecting of sex trafficking, would harm their parties’ stated aims of fighting corruption, Channel 12 reported.
They have decided to wait until party lists are finalized before making any mergers with the Israel Democratic Party, the report said.
Barak's really stooped very low, and I've got an awful feeling we'll be hearing even worse allegations made against him soon enough.
