Finger-pointing Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer has some explaining to do for the “dirty money” he cheerfully accepted to win past elections.
Schumer accepted tens of thousands of dollars in donations during the 1990s from Democratic mega-donor Jeffrey Epstein, an alleged pedophile and child-sex trafficker.
The political donations were revealed in Federal Election Commission records (see below). Ironically, Schumer has been leading the charge demanding the resignation of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and saying that President Trump should “answer” for his past association with billionaire Epstein, a longtime pal of Bill Clinton.
As BizPac Review reported, Epstein was arrested and charged with child-sex trafficking and raping underage girls from 2002 to 2005.
Schumer wasted no time trying to associate President Trump and his aides with Epstein, but downplayed the dirty money he accepted from the alleged pedophile by saying he’s donating to anti-sex trafficking groups. (Keep in mind that any money Schumer is donating is OPM – Other People’s Money.)
A Schumer spokesman said, “While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees (PACs), Senator Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups.”
In all, Jeffrey Epstein donated a total of $22,000 to Schumer’s various political campaigns. Like Hillary and Bill Clinton, Chuck Schumer also received hefty donations from another accused sexual predator: Harvey Weinstein, a Democratic mega-donor.
This week, Senator Schumer accused Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta of letting Epstein off easy when he was the US attorney in Miami from 2005 to 2009. According to the Miami Herald, Acosta was responsible for inking a secret 2008 plea deal with Epstein that his victims weren’t informed of.
Under that sweetheart deal, Epstein served just 13 months in prison despite allegedly molesting dozens of teenage girls at his Palm Beach estate.

This week, Chuck Schumer demanded Acosta’s resignation for his part in that 2008 plea deal.
“Instead of prosecuting a predator and serial sex trafficker of children, Acosta chose to let him off easy,” Schumer said. “This is not acceptable. We cannot have, as one of the leading appointed officials in America, someone who has done this.”
Schumer also slammed President Trump for calling Epstein a “terrific guy” in a 2002 New York magazine article. However, a court filing shows that Trump barred Epstein from Mar-a-Lago in 2011 “because Epstein sexually assaulted a girl at the club.”
Naturally, Schumer ignored this fact. Also, unlike Schumer, Jeffrey Epstein never donated to Trump’s campaign when he entered politics in 2015.
