Porkins Policy Radio episode 126 Wayne Madsen and Andrew Kreig on Trump, Epstein, and the Waterbury Connection

Investigative reporters Wayne Madsen and Andrew Kreig join me today to discuss their recent investigation into Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein’s 1994 rape of a 12 year old girl name “Maria.” We begin by talking about the tip that led them to look into this case. We then look into Maria’s hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut and the circumstances surrounding her abduction outside of Nash’s Pizzeria. Wayne and Andrew discuss Waterbury’s history of covering up sexual abuse scandals. They focus on former GOP mayor Phil Giordano who was caught on an FBI wiretap talking about payments for sex with two girls aged 10 and 8. Andrew and Wayne talk about how with case was covered up and the lengths to which the Waterbury government has gone to shield the public from this dark chapter. We then return specifically to the case of Maria. Wayne talks about the Kaite Johnson civil suit against Trump and Epstein for rape, and how Johnson directly referred to Maria in her criminal complaint. Wayne mentions that Trump specifically threatened Johnson that is she ever told anyone about what happened she would disappear like Maria. Andrew then talks about the roadblocks that the Waterbury government has set up with regards to Maria’s story. Andrew discusses how Waterbury Corporation Counsel Linda Wihbey has blocked their request for the original police report into Maria’s disappearance.

We begin the second hour by looking at several recent revelations about Trump and Epstein’s close friendship. The three of us touch on how the media continues to avoid these topics every time they are brought up. We pay particular attention to Steve Bannon’s overt reference to Katie Johnson’s rape in a Vanity Fair article. Later we look at Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury which contains references to Trump and Tom Barrack’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein. Wayne and Andrew speculate about this alleged trio, and if this had something to do with Trump’s desire to appoint Barrack as chief of staff. We also go into Alexander Acosta’s history of helping cover up massive scandals like Jack Abramoff and the UBS tax evasion. We then discuss Acosta’s appointment by Trump as Labor Secretary. We round out the conversation by touching on the bogus Pizzagate story and its suspicious timing that coincided with Kaite Johnson’s lawsuit. We look at how Trump’s most ardent supporters continue to buy into these false conspiracy theories and defend him. Andrew and Wayne finish by talking about the next steps they will be taking to investigate Maria’s abuse.
