Verified Twitter is ablaze at news of Jeff Epstein’s arrest for sex trafficking, and they are dishonestly trying to pretend that Mike Cernovich didn’t file the original lawsuit leading to scrutiny regarding Epstein. Here is a quote from the Court’s opinion:
On January 19, 2017, Cernovich, an independent blogger and self‐described “popular political journalist,” moved to intervene, seeking to unseal the summary judgment record, and Dershowitz joined his motion. On April 6, 2018, after the case had settled, the Herald moved to intervene and unseal the entire docket. The District Court granted each of these motions to intervene, but denied the related requests to unseal in orders entered November 2, 2016, May 3, 2017, and August 27, 2018, respectively.
The Appellants timely appealed from each of the orders denying their respective motions to unseal. Although each Appellant seeks the release of a different set of documents, all argue that the District Court failed to analyze the documents individually or properly apply the presumption of public access to court documents. We therefore ordered that the appeals be heard in tandem and held argument on March 6, 2019. On March 11, 2019, we issued an order to show cause why we “should not unseal the summary judgment motion, including any materials filed in connection with this motion, and the District Court’s summary judgment decision.”8 The parties timely filed their responses.
On May 4, 2017, Politico published a story about the lawsuit.

- In recent months, the suit attracted the attention of pro-Trump blogger Mike Cernovich, who intervened in the case in an unsuccessful push to release a large volume of blacked-out court filings. “I want to know what’s really going on and we can’t get it,” Cernovich told POLITICO. “This is a big story. My people care.”
Julie Brown of the Miami Herald will win a Pultizer for her work on the Jeff Epstein story. She began her deep and important work in 2018. She did 10 times as much reporting as I did, and I wish her nothing but accolades.
But anyone claiming I wasn’t first to file, at considerable personal and financial risk to myself, is simply lying.
A lot of people say, “Why do you care who gets credit?”
Those people are called losers who never put their own skin in the game.
In the real world, issues like these matter, as this stuff isn’t free or inexpensive.
And going after billionaire pedophiles is the kind of stuff that gets you hurt or worse.

I have watched you for years. Go get them, tiger! You are wonderful and thank you for all the work you do. I don’t have much to give now but I’m starting with $5.00 I don’t care if I have to do without some stupid nothing at the end of each month. We need people like you Mike. Thank you.

What ever happened to the notebooks the “DC Madam”, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, allegedly gave to her lawyer.
That rabbit hole got filled in quickly; not to mention the quickie investigation of her death.
Good work Mike!
Darren Paul Zarubin says
May God bless and protect you Mr. Cernovich.
Thank you doesn’t even come close to adequately express my gratitude, but it is all I’ve got.
Keep up the fight, Mike. Great work. Keep pushing. Best wishes.
Jesse Calleja says

I am not one for flowery religious talk of the hereinafter, but please believe that you have a reward to come. Meanwhile, as the father of four girls, I thank you for making *this* world much better.
If I were a really wealthy man I would create my own bigger, better Pulitzer and you’d win it in the first year.
There are a lot of complicit cowards in this world. We’re glad you weren’t one of them. God bless.

Sir, you are to be commended for your actions. More good men need to root out cancers among their sex.
I trust you have found the tip of one very deep iceberg. I pray the digging will continue.
I feel so badly for the victims whose lives have likely been shattered in one way or another. At the very least their abilities to attach to partners will be compromised.
I believe this cretin Epstein ought to use his wealth on therapy for every single person who needs it and for as long as they do.
I would not get too worried about not getting credit for your scoop-if we in Canada all know what you are responsible for, the truth is unlikely to be buried.
I bet your wife is sure proud of you!

How do they think they can write you out of the story?
The first thing smart people would ask would be “Who filed the lawsuit?”
Somebody give this Cernovich man some credit!
