Twelve victims of Jeffrey Epstein filed a lawsuit accusing the FBI of covering up its failure to properly investigate Epstein, enabling his sex trafficking operation to continue for over 20 years.

The victims say the FBI received credible tips about Epstein’s trafficking of young women and girls as early as 1996 but failed to interview victims or share information with other law enforcement.

While the FBI began investigating in 2006, it ended the probe after Epstein pleaded guilty to a minor charge in 2008.

The victims argue this negligence allowed Epstein to continue abusing women until his 2019 arrest.

According to the lawsuit, “As a direct and proximate cause of the FBI’s negligence, plaintiffs would not have been continued to be sex trafficked, abused, raped, tortured and threatened.”

“Jane Does 1-12 bring this lawsuit to get to the bottom — once and for all — of the FBI’s role in Epstein’s criminal sex trafficking ring,” continued the complaint.

The suit seeks damages from the U.S. government for the prolonged trauma.

It cites a Senate hearing where the FBI director pledged to provide more information on the agency’s role.

The number of Epstein’s victims is believed to be over 100.
