"Unaware of my [personal history with Epstein, this person assured me that the New York financier was no serious harm to anyone. He was a good guy. A charming guy. Useful, too. He knew a lot of rich Arabs, including the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, and, further, he had clever ideas about creating bond issues for them. “OK, so he has a girl problem,” this person threw on, almost as an afterthought.
"Epstein’s name, I was told, had been raised by the Trump transition team when Alexander Acosta, the former U.S. attorney in Miami who’d [infamously cut Epstein a non-prosecution plea deal back in 2007, was being interviewed for the job of labor secretary. The plea deal put a hard stop to a separate federal investigation of alleged sex crimes with minors and trafficking.
“Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily, apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta."
This thread’s topic could now take down some people.
Bill Clinton was FAA-logged on 26 flights with him.
What about Trump’s association?
Bradley Edwards, attorney for one of Epstein’s accusers, publicly said that, in 2009, after serving subpoenas on a lot of people only Trump picked up the phone and gave the lawyer as much time as he wanted. Trump gave good information that checked out and helped the lawyer.
And then Nancy Pelosi’s dumb daughter tweets after Epstein arrest:
"Christine Pelosi, who is an official with the Democratic National Committee, tweeted on Saturday: ‘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.’"
— articles tell all the details.
One says that since Epstein now under Southern District New York, he has to blab.
