Big news breaking on Wednesday Morning as Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer received thousands of dollars in donations from indicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The New York Post is reporting that according to the Federal Election Commission, records show that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997, first as a US congressman from New York and then when he was vying to be the state’s senator in 1998, an election he won.
Epstein — who was arrested Saturday and charged with sex trafficking and a related conspiracy count for allegedly sexually abusing a vast network of underage girls — also gave $10,000 to Victory in New York, a joint fundraising committee established by Schumer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Epstein gave an additional $5,000 to Win New York, a Schumer-associated joint committee that benefited the Liberal Party of New York state.
Remember when the Senate Minority Leader said that Acosta should resign, and Trump should explain himself for comments? Now look who’s taking money from Epstein, it’s Schumer himself.
Both of Epstein’s donations to the committees came in October 1998 — and look to have primarily benefited the DSCC and the Liberal Party of New York, as Epstein would have already met the $2,000 limit on donating individually to Schumer.
At the time, donors could give $1,000 to a candidate per election — once in the primary and again in the general.
That means Schumer and Schumer-linked entities received a combined $22,000.
