Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Democratic National Committee official, lamented over the weekend that it is "quite likely that some of our faves are implicated" in the Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking case.
"This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may — whether on Republicans or Democrats," Pelosi wrote on Twitter Saturday, adding the hashtags "#WeSaidEnough" and "#MeToo."

It was not immediately clear whom Pelosi was referring to. However, Epstein was known to associate with Hollywood superstars — some of whom have been swept up by the "Me Too" movement, such as Kevin Spacey — and politicians, including former President Bill Clinton and even President Donald Trump.
Fox News reported in 2016 that Clinton has taken at least 26 trips abroad with Epstein, even ditching his Secret Service detail on several occasions.
Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday night upon arrival at Teterboro airport in New Jersey. The 66-year-old financier, who was arrested by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, was charged with multiple counts of trafficking underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s, according to the Daily Beast.
Epstein is due in court Monday.
This is not the first time Epstein has faced legal consequences for alleged sexual encounters with underage girls. He previously served a 13-month sentence for soliciting prostitution in Florida. The sentence came as a result of a controversial plea deal that allowed Epstein to escape federal charges; it also allowed Epstein to leave jail six days a week.
Epstein is a registered sex offender.
