OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
President Trump recently declared January 2020, “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.” And he stated: “With my support, departments and agencies are steadfastly continuing the battle to abolish this form of modern slavery.”
Also, in January of 2020, Cindy McCain recently spoke at Florida International University about the scourge of human trafficking. During the Q&A session at the end, McCain is asked a question about Jeffery Epstein by a man named Sebastian.
Sebastian asks McCain: “I’m going to shoot straight. There is a perception among young people, that there is an untouchable ring of governmental and economic leads in this country that not only benefit but actively participate in sex trafficking. Jeffery Epstein was an example, Robert Kraft was arrested, not far from here on trafficking charges. So in terms of this as a grass-roots movement to push combat against this issue, are these power players a priority for us right now? Can we even touch them, or is this a pipe dream that we need to address in the future somehow?”
McCain answers: “You know, it’s like everything. It hides in plain sight. Epstein was hiding in plain sight. We all knew about him. We all knew what he was doing. But we had no one who was….um, no legal aspect that would go after him. They were afraid of him, for whatever reason they were afraid of him. And all of a sudden, someone said BS, we’re not afraid of you anymore, and what you’re doing is not only wrong it’s illegal, and you know, all those things. Um, it’s like a house of cards now. It’s going to start tumbling, believe me. And these guys, if they don’t leave the country, number one, they’re gonna get caught. And not only will they get caught but they’re going to be made examples of. And that’s exactly what we should be doing, uh with these guys, especially.” McCain goes on to say, “In my opinion, and I know there are questions, but Epstein is a chicken-sh*t for doing what he did. He should have faced the music, that one. He should have, sorry.”

Wow! I’ve been passionate about this topic for years, so I could go on and on about it, but I won’t. Allow me to sum it up in three points.
1. Thank you to Cindy McCain and her work over the years to help prevent human trafficking. Thank God for this discussion that was held at Florida International University, we all need to share this and be aware of it and spread the word. And Thank God for the Trump administration, their work on establishing National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and all of the actions they’ve taken toward stopping the horrific tragedy of national slavery and human trafficking.
2. I know questions remain about Epstein’s death, but I don’t know many people on planet earth who still believe Epstein killed himself, except maybe Cindy McCain. #EpsteinDidntKillHimself
3. Who exactly knew about what Epstein was doing, and when did they know it, and for how long did they know it? I’m not sure why Cindy McCain couldn’t quite admit it and give President Trump HUGE KUDOS for being the one to CALL BS on all of this, so I’ll do it for her.
THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP, and John W. Huber, and John Durham, and William Barr, and everyone on their teams WHO ARE DOING SOMETHING to stop crimes against humanity. As they say, it could have been done, and should have been done, LONG AGO.
To finish, I have three words: FOLLOW THE MONEY.
