“In life and in death, Jeffrey Epstein did everything he could to escape accountability and silence survivors. And he didn’t do it alone. All the money in the world can’t erase the truth. While some answers died with Jeffrey Epstein, there are still questions to be asked and individuals to be held accountable. So for those who assisted Epstein and for those who took part in his sick criminal acts, we shall pursue justice every single day until every last criminal has been caught — justice will not be denied. I stand ready to assist the Governor and FDLE in uncovering the truth here in Florida. The brave women who came forward to confront the man who preyed upon them as girls will not get their day in court – but their courage made a difference and their voices matter.”
