Description

In 2016, a group of men in rural Kansas started meeting in secret. They spent months forming a militia group and plotting what would’ve been one of the worst domestic terror attacks in U.S. history -- if it hadn't been stopped. "Truth and Lies: The Informant" tells the remarkable story of an ordinary man who infiltrated this dangerous group as an FBI informant and risked his life to save others. Season 1, "Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein," covered the rise and fall of the notorious sex offender and financier and told the stories of women who fought to have their voices heard in an effort to bring Epstein to justice.

3914
In July 2019, Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of underage girls, handcuffed as he exited his private plane that had arrived from Paris. For a brief moment, the victims exhaled, hopeful that justice would be served at long last. But before facing the charges, Epstein slips from justice again –- this time, for good. In August 2019, Epstein would be found dead in his jail cell after an apparent suicide. But the story is far from over. Still-open civil lawsuits, a fight over Epstein's estate and questions about alleged accomplices all linger. And through it all, the brave women who came forward to bring down one of the most prolific sex traffickers of our time persevere, sharing with us what their lives look like today -- after Jeffrey Epstein.

S1, E8: The Sweetheart Deal
4162
Back in Palm Beach, local authorities build what they believe is a solid case against Jeffrey Epstein and they turn it over to the FBI, confident the feds will investigate and prosecute Epstein as the local police feel he deserves. Victims ?from Florida, New York and New Mexico are interviewed by the FBI ?over the course of two years -- and ?they are assured that the wheels of justice are turning. But what eventually happens stuns Palm Beach police and the women who, despite fearing for their safety, opened up old wounds to cooperate with federal investigators. How did the millionaire from Palm Beach, accused of sexually abusing potentially over 30 girls and young women across the country, end up spending just over a year in a local jail cell that allowed to come and go almost as he pleased? Just who was behind the "sweetheart" deal Epstein got, leaving victims both angry and betrayed? And new information from ABC News shows federal investigators knew even more years ago than has been previously reported about allegations against Epstein -- this time, surrounding a 14-year old girl in New York.

Jeffrey Epstein further expands his real estate empire with arguably his most extravagant purchase, a private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands called Little St. James, that he dubbed "Little St. Jeff."

S1, E6: Zorro Ranch
3003
As Jeffrey Epstein continues to build a financial empire, he ventures West, buying a massive piece of property outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's a private cattle ranch -- set in desolate, untouched land -- and rumors would fly among locals as to just what was going on at the compound known as Zorro Ranch. Epstein's wealth may have been growing, but so was the scale of his alleged abuse -- this time, involving a 16-year-old girl who says she was lured to the ranch by Epstein under the guise of a student trip. When she arrived, she was the only student there.
