The billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's arrest on new charges of sex trafficking, to which he has pleaded not guilty, has focused national interest on his wide circle of powerful associates | Michael D'Antonio for CNNopinion

For decades, the financier--who is charged with sex-trafficking underage girls-- cultivated an East Coast axis of elites, assembling an impressive roster of associations that range from the headmaster of a prestigious private school to President Donald Trump, writes Michael D'Antonio.

(CNN)The billionaire Jeffrey Epstein's arrest on new charges of sex trafficking (he has pleaded not guilty) has focused national interest on his wide circle of powerful associates. For decades, Epstein cultivated an East Coast axis of elites, assembling an impressive roster of associations that range from the headmaster of a prestigious private school to President Donald Trump.

The roster begins with Attorney General William Barr's father, Donald Barr, who, according to former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, hired Epstein to teach at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Epstein got the job despite being a college drop-out, and it put him in daily contact with the sons and daughters of Manhattan's elite Serving the powerful is one way for people of modest backgrounds to rise socially and financially. As a kid from Coney Island, the son of a city parks employee, Epstein would have found Dalton a good springboard. From there he flitted to an investment bank, where his Dalton connections likely did not hurt him. He was soon advising the rich on tax strategies, according to New York Magazine. Read MoreAs he succeeded on Wall Street, Epstein built the kind of wealth that allowed him to buy a private island and one of Manhattan's biggest private houses. Though he never attended Harvard, he joined its subculture by donating $30 million to the development of a science program. He bought a mansion in Palm Beach and turned up on occasion at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago He bought a jet he used to transport rich and famous friends and acquaintances, including Bill Clinton, on trips across the globe.

Reporter on Acosta: Lots of excuses, but no apologies 02:46According to a statement issued by Clinton's office, the former president's dealings with Epstein seem to have begun and ended between 2002 and"well over a decade ago." Trump has known Epstein since the mid-1980s. In 2002 he told New York Magazine that Epstein was a"terrific guy" and said"He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life." A lawyer for the Trump Organization denied the two had a social relationship. Epstein's previous convictions (in 2007, Miami-based federal prosecutors armed with a 53-page indictment accusing Epstein of trafficking children for sex allowed him to plead guilty in state court to felony solicitation of underage girls) and the recent charges against him, suggest he was not just a social animal but a man who treated women and girls as prey. Trump and Epstein seem to have shared a desire to create opportunities to be around young models. Trump bought and operated beauty pageants and a modeling agency. Epstein seems to have done the same. Julie K. Brown, the Miami Herald reporter who has been covering the Epstein story, told MSNBC"There is a comment in one of the court files where Epstein is quoted as saying, 'I want to set up my modeling agency the same way Trump set up his modeling agency.'"

Lil Billy never seems to learn from his mistakes...……...

Opinion So .realDonaldTrump kicks Epstein out of his Golf Club 15 years ago for being inappropriate with a teenage girl, but BillClinton takes MULTIPLE “vacations” with Jeffrey Epstein to his Private Island & runs this pic? Stop feigning bewilderment at being called FakeNews! Opinion Opinion Epstein 1 Democrats donor, helped launch Clinton global initiative, flew Clinton at least 26 times without secret service,ect. Yet U turn this on Trump. It was Trump who banned and reported Epstein as a pedophilia. Leave Acosta alone & report the truth.

Opinion Why are you not reporting on this? Opinion Hahaha the Clinton News Network. You have to at least admire their ability to be consistent and uphold their GARBAGE status!!!! Opinion Wide circle of powerful degenerate democrat associates, hollywood elites, and powerful members of the fakes news media cabal.

Opinion Nice picture. This is amazing how CNN tries to build a connection to Epstein. Not talking about the 26 trips Bill Clinton made with Epstein. Three trips Hillary made with Epstein. Schumer taking money from Epstein. Podesta making trips to Epstein’s Kid diddling island. Amazing Opinion A new CNN low!!! Dig up a picture from 25 years ago Continue to prove to be a step below tabloid news... So sad.

Opinion Trump was not a politician back then, but he was a Democrat. He has been friends with Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein. The Clinton's took Weinstein and Epstein’s money. Trump donated to the Dem Party as well. He eventually left the Dem. Party many years ago. Opinion EXPLAIN THIS & why you aren’t reporting it

Opinion Federal Election Commission records show that SenSchumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein. Why isn't anyone asking him of his connection to Epstein? Because the DNC/CNN are hypocrites. Opinion Interesting on how you focus on Trump when you shoukd focus on Clinton.. Their foundation.. Acistas's boss at the time.. The head if FBI ( Mueller and Comey) etc

Opinion CNN....remember TRUMP is the one had this all exposed you twits. You knew this was coming too.

Clinton and Trump Plead Ignorance as Epstein’s Old Friends Begin to SweatA spokesperson for Bill Clinton issued a statement distancing him from Epstein, whom he once called “a highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist.” It should be. They should all go down. Holy crap, this is dangerously close to objectity for this Twitter account. Is the usual dipshit how runs it on vacation? and the editor who quashed the allegations in 2003? you owe MeToo

Opinion Yeah, don’t show Clinton’s picture, how about Schumer. Opinion You people are a joke, this picture is why you are fakenews. Totally corrupt trash is all the msm and dnc are.. KAG2020 Opinion CNN fake news..ising a pic of Trump to hide the dirty deeds of Clinton & others who are tied to Epstein..Dems & liberals are very destructive & dangerous to the US!!

Opinion You show Trump of course when CNN boyfriend Clinton was with him dozens of times more. Hmm Opinion So funny that CNN has nothing to “report on” regarding Clinton’s 26+ flights on lolitaexpress Opinion Opinion CNN, Why do you post a picture of Trump and Epstein, yet fail to even mention the close ties between Epstein and the Clintons? And you wonder why you’re labeled as fake news?

Opinion Ed Buck and Jeffrey Epstein both big time Democrat donors. Ed Buck has 2 black men die at his house that had been pumped full of Meth. Crickets from CNN. Jeffrey Epstein is a sex trafficker and pedophile. Where is the non stip footage on this? Opinion CNN bias at its best. This is why CNN has no respect from the majority of Americans and why the ratings are so poor!

Opinion spinmasters

Opinion Is this all you got?🤣🤣🤣🤣 Opinion You forgot this picture.. Opinion We have Weinstein and then Epstein What's with all these rich 'stein'? Are all rich 'stein' men sexual predators?

Opinion Just stop CNN you going to end up looking like a fool that you are .why don't you put Chuck Schumer's face up there where he accepted money from a pedophile and a sex trafficker why don't you put that up there

Opinion Trump looks stiff and uncomfortable. Epstein looks like a groupie. Opinion You just can't make this up. All of Donald's men are sleazy. I hope the father's get him alone. Then there will be no need no worries about jail time. How low can Donald and his men go. Unbelievable. Opinion Why are you showing him with Trump and not Clinton the real criminal! You want to blame Trump instead of the people that raped children! Incredible!

Opinion CNN will be faithful to the DNC until the end. And it’s coming. Opinion Way to try and spin the story of your master’s downfall.... Opinion Boys will be boys.

Opinion Talk about swamps. These two actually lived in one. Two birds of a feather. Opinion Trump is definitely one of them... Opinion Love how CNN keeps showing pictures of the one man (Trump) who banned Epstein from his hotel! Opinion Where are the pictures of Epstein and Billie Boy Clinton CNN is so biased and hateful. That is why you are the enemy of the people. You are deceitful by omission. Where are Clinton photos..............

Opinion Why is Trump in the picture? Just asking... Opinion Nice Donny picture. OK Billy Clinton took a plane ride with Jeffrey 20 plus times. Go ahead do your Job and investigate that. Opinion Can you report on how much money and who he gave it to in the Democratic Party instead of trying to tie him to potus who threw him out and banned him from Trumps property? Start with the obvious, HillaryClinton SenSchumer then maybe ClintonFoundat ?

More misleading and FAKE BIASED news! 🤮 Opinion Oh Oh....and he was making tapes of his friends? A lot of abusers of children aren't sleeping very good. His friends is HIGH places?

Opinion So phony and transparent by CNN to use a photo with Trump. This is no casual or accidental image. The media wants to tie atrump to Epstein rather than the horde of figures who really are involved. Opinion Epstein would take down half the Democratic party and attorney general Barr will take the other half out that would be the perfect America

Opinion You guy are worse than tabloids now. You showed a picture with the only guy that help feds get him the first time and banned him from club when he heard what he was doing.

Opinion

Opinion Not for nothin', but doesn't the sleaze Epstein have the BIGGEST FACE you've ever seen? Opinion Circus News Network can’t seem to find the over abundance of photos of Bill Clinton and many other top leading Democrats in the company of Mr. Epstein. Maybe we should provide them with some! Opinion Show the pic with President Clinton. And his 27 trips to orgy island.

Opinion Opinion Love the picture. Of course it’s the wrong President. I believe the Whore Dog in Chief himself, Bill Clinton, had frequent flier miles. Opinion Oh Yeah, day by day the sick and twist Demorats will be becoming more desperate, because all Americans have had enough of their Elitists Ways. President Trump’s Executive Order cracking down on Human Trafficking is working.

Opinion You are trying to protect your own. Right? We didn’t call you guys ClintonNewsNetwork for nothing! You are living up to your name😁😁 Opinion CNN fakenews Opinion Opinion Why does this much power and money corrupt so horribly to some and not others?

Opinion They could have shown a picture with Clinton, but hey, its CNN Opinion Opinion Trump took one flight from FLA-NY with his brother. Banned JE from Mar-a lago for life and was the only one who cooperated with the victims attorneys in 2008. Stop with the Trump garbage! Bill Clinton flew to pedo island 26 times, ditching his Secret Service detail for 5 of them

Opinion CNN is running this photo? Not the one with a former democratic president? It's almost as though this is propaganda! Opinion You should be checking on his friendship with Bill Clinton Opinion Democrats calling for Acosta to resign, but didn’t say a word when Comey/Lynch allowed Hillary Clinton to skate on espionage charges. Their hypocrisy stinks to high heaven. They are corrupt to the core. SenSchumer happily took thousands of $$ from Epstein for his campaign.

Opinion Opinion Nice pic. Trump kicked him to the curb and Clinton is his buddy. But nice pic of course. FakeNews Opinion You never know who you know. You would think Chuck Schumer should’ve known. Trump actually threw him out of his club and testified. Where’s that story CNN?! Opinion Nasty

Opinion What FAKENEWSCNN would never show. How old do you suppose this little girl is on the Lolita Express Opinion Opinion Opinion EveryBodies UNCLE Opinion Opinion Where’s Clinton Opinion Russia collusion is no longer working...CNN not giving up...lol Opinion President Trump banned Epstein from Trump facilities years ago. President Trump warned Obama’s DOJ Of Epstein, Obama turned a blind eye.

Opinion And these are the people who McConnell cave the tax cut to. Opinion Obama and his DOJ turned a blind eye to Epstein and his rape organization.

Opinion Bill Clinton not being celebrated by Democrats during the current debates, I wonder why? Opinion Do you job cnn or you can hire me. Opinion scumbags, using this photo, you realize 45 kicked him out of his Mara - Lago for his conduct. Opinion And looky who’s in the picture with him? is that the man who claims he doesn’t really remember him or didn’t have a relationship with him or doesn’t really know him you know some outrageous lie like that?

Opinion Epstein is a scum bag, may he rot in hell. The media guilt by association agenda is really unprofessional, especially with no evidence. FakeNews Opinion Pedophilia is not a partisan issue, LockHimUp Shame Opinion Try as you like CNN to link him to Trump but Trump band him from his resort for mistreating women. Trump won’t get credit for that

Opinion Of course CNN put him in a VERY old picture with Trump. Why not a more recent photo with Clinton? CNN is really mentally ill. Opinion CCNOpinion The falling out they had, could it have anything to do with the daughters? They were close and then 🤔🙄🤨❤️🇺🇸❤️🌎 Opinion And underage girls normally as a headline this picture gets more clicks...

Opinion Where is the picture of him with Bill Clinton? Opinion Trump dropped him, why are you showing Trump’s photo fake news? Believe Clinton’s photo should be in all your Epstein reporting... Opinion Opinion Opinion Opinion The thought that makes us think that we deserve to be cut off from the beauty of reality..

Opinion Typical of Clinton News Network. Opinion chooses a picture of him with Trump instead of one that shows him with Bill Clinton who routinely rode on his private jet. Opinion We ain’t even seen the tip of the iceberg Opinion Ummmm, why do you have a picture of the President though. He kicked this dude out of his club, discontinued their acquaintanceship and never rode on his plane. Nice try, put ol’Billy on there... You know, the guy who flew on the pedos plane a gazillion times

Opinion Love how you bias fools have to use a pic with realDonaldTrump when you know damn well Trump cut ties with the scumbag. We know who is crapping themselves right now. You cant hide in EnemyOfThePeople Opinion Our POTUS praises dictators who have massive wealth and defends a billionaire who commits heinous crimes. Yet, he thinks it's okay to criticize decent people because they are not billionaires. A president should be fair, it's a shame our POTUS is not. Actions speaks for itself.

Opinion A very good reason to distrust the rich, powerful, and famous. Opinion I'm going to go out on a limb here--but I think the guy who was accused of rape by his first wife and a woman on national television a few weeks ago--and bragged about molesting women--might just be a sexual predator, a rapist and a criminal. So much for 'conservative values.'

Opinion We still didn’t get to know who all took tax payers money in our government to pay off sexual misconduct Opinion Not to sound like a broken record here but what is new about Politics now Days any way? All it does is bring people depression as there is just to much to deal with & not enough positive change happening to be productive enough to Help improve a person's Mentalhealth

Opinion Remember, friend of 'Wild Bill' too! Opinion He grabbed many by the 🐱 Opinion lol... at using a trump pic instead of BillClinton Opinion Funny how Google scrubbed the pictures of Epstein and Clinton together from the internet. Talk about meddling in an election

Opinion Trump had Epstein thrown out of his resorts. He might have held the guy in high esteem at 1 point, but that ended. Bill Clinton on the other hand... Well let's just say that sometimes you get tired of taking advantage of young interns in the White House. Opinion Opinion I see CNN doesn’t even try to hide their biases anymore. You have to respect that. The fact that Bill Clinton isn’t mentioned once, even though it came out that Clinton is alleged to have used Epstein’s jet and his black book contacts to have sex with underaged girls, is just sad

Opinion God bless you CNN maybe mossad and Epstein will bring down our white supremacist govt since Trump has taken over. Opinion It's far to late to spin it to the left. Opinion Opinion Funny how Clinton who went to the private island 27 times is not of any interest to this story Opinion Named Trump 6 times, Clinton once, Woody Allen and Alec Baldwin zero.

Opinion Like Tom Hanks. Opinion 26 times.

Opinion Trump kicked Epstein out fool Opinion Haha Bill Clinton’s best friend but let’s put a picture of him and Trump together. Ya your news isnt bias.....derp derp Opinion It’s sad that I’m not surprised by this in the least. Opinion Like Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans. Opinion Opinion Trump should be Charged with him!

Opinion 🤦🏼‍♀️ Opinion Nice photo choice...Bill appreciates you trying to keep the heat off of him Opinion Like Alec Baldwin.
