Robert Sweet, a federal judge presiding over a key lawsuit relating to elite pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, was found dead on Sunday. No cause of death has been announced.

The death of the Manhattan-based US District Court Judge adds another twist to the drawn-out legal saga and to efforts to unseal details about the conduct of Epstein, his enablers, and his powerful friends in high places.

Politico provided background information about the suit and Judge Sweet’s role in potentially releasing to the public explosive details about Epstein and his associates:

Sweet was assigned to a lawsuit that emerged from the aftermath of Epstein’s controversial plea deal a decade ago, in which he escaped federal charges by pleading guilty to two prostitution-related offenses in state court. Epstein ended up spending 13 months in jail, with daily furloughs that allowed him to work in his office.

Critics have denounced the plea deal and the government official who negotiated it: Alexander Acosta, then the top federal prosecutor in south Florida and now U.S. secretary of Labor. The sentence, critics say, was excessively lenient for a man who faced allegations of procuring dozens of teenage girls for sex acts.

At an argument session earlier this month, three 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals judges seemed to view the secrecy in the notorious Epstein suit as excessive and unjustified and began planning for the opening of records.

All the judges on the panel appeared to favor making records from the Epstein case public soon, but there was some discussion about the process for considering opening all the records. Judge Sweet was in the frame to oversee the process of unsealing Epstein’s records.

One question debated at the argument was whether Judge Sweet should oversee that process or whether it should be handed over to another judge. 

Following the death of Judge Sweet, 96, that question is now moot. Whether the process of unsealing the Epstein records is derailed remains to be seen.

The news regarding the death of the federal judge follows explosive revelations that special counsel Robert Mueller personally intervened in the FBI investigation of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, striking a deal that allowed him avoid prosecution.

According to a series of bombshell FBI documents released in May, known child predator Jeffrey Epstein had a professional relationship with then-FBI Director Robert Mueller.

“Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon,” says one of the FBI documents. “Case agent advised that no federal prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the state of Florida.”

  1. yes CIA Director John Brennan, with some assistance from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, gathered foreign intelligence and fed it throughout our domestic Intelligence Community.
    The FBI became the handler of Brennan’s intelligence and engaged in the more practical elements of surveillance.
    The Department of Justice facilitated investigations by the FBI and legal maneuverings, while providing a crucial shield of nondisclosure.
    The Department of State became a mechanism of information dissemination and leaks.
    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee provided funding, support, and media collusion.
    Obama administration officials were complicit, and engaged in unmasking and intelligence gathering and dissemination.
    The media was the most corrosive element in many respects: None of these events could have transpired without their willing participation. Stories were pushed, facts were ignored, and narratives were promoted.


    • Really? Russian propaganda is getting stupider every day. Go back to shit-hole Russia and stop wasting our time.

    • I don’t see your picture listed, which is probably a good thing because you probably look like a Russian heffer. Extra weight caused by Chernobyl radiation.

  2. He was running a c_a honeypot operation… Just like high hefner… Only Mueller was to get all the evidence… More blackmail material for his extortion ring… Mueller had fib and Epstein… Brennan hacked congress through the swan bros… Clapper hid the evidence… And kept no such agency out of the way…
    #LogicalConjecture … 8719…

  3. Acosta is not the current Secretary of Labor – he left in May. His replacement is Thomas Perez.

  4. Sounds like Hillary shinanigan copycats…….wonder if he committed suicide by shooting himself in the back.
