President Trump and Jeffrey Epstein's Arrest

Tim O'Brien, executive editor of Bloomberg Opinion and author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald (Warner Books, 2015), discusses the arrest and indictment of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy on Monday."Are there tapes or other possibly incriminating evidence about the people that Jeffrey Epstein associated with? Donald Trump spent a significant amount of time with Jeffrey Epstein… there’s a good 20 year run where they were deeply familiar with one another," says @TimOBrien. — Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) July 9, 2019"We don’t know how [Jeffrey Epstein's] money management firm got funded, that has been a big mystery around him for a long time… he only had one big client who came into his firm when he started, Lex Wexner, a well-known retail billionaire," says @TimOBrien. — Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) July 9, 2019
