I'm thinking Sec of Labor Acosta. He's been in the news lately for cutting a sweetheart deal with epstein.

I think the Epstein thing is really really bad and when it hits itís going to destroy the swamp and all those who touched it.....Trump told him what the post swamp will look like and Acosta is running for cover early...

Too bad, he did a good job as Sec. of Labor.

Likely lots more collateral damage on the way from the Epstein situation.

Trump’s Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigns amid pressure from Jeffrey Epstein sex traffic case

Then Schumer should resign for accepting campaign donations from Epstein, but he won't.

Acosta was/is a member of the deep state swamp. Just another swamp dweller that others lied about and convinced Trump that he was O.K.


Trump can't personally vet these people. That said Acosta was part of the cover up to protect other swamp members. He belongs in prison along with the rest of them.

It's also possible that Acosta was pressured from high up to make the case go away with favorable terms for Epstein, as appears to have happened. If that's the case, it would be highly likely that Acosta would have a lot of potential as a witness to be used against more swamp dwellers.

Seems to be looking that way. Trump needs another 4 years just to skim the top layer off the swamp.

I hope you are correct. Rush Limbaugh thinks this whole thing is really about Trump. This is an opportunity to embarrass Trump and take out another member of his administration and an opportunity to fish around and see if there's something to implicate Trump. Rush thinks the MSM will quickly drop the whole thing once they realize they can't nail Trump for anything.

I think it would be foolish not to think that this is going to get a lot of people of R and D and this is just the start.
IMO, you're not going to know Epstein and not be involved in some of the S he's involved with, birds of a feather..

The end game may be Trump but I have to wonder why anyone has any type of acquaintance with Epstein knowing what he's about if you don't also share that interest.
This is either going to to catch a lot of high level people or no one because of who's involved

I think Epstein will cooperate for a lesser sentence and name some big names.

As a cop, while I acknowledge that there are dirty cops out there, we generally try to live our lives a bit "above and beyond" the normal standard, for no reason other than the extreme scrutiny we fall under. I think the same thing might be true with Republicans vs Democrats in general.

Dems, knowing they'll get a pass from the media, probably don't worry so much about scandals; while Pubs, knowing that everything they say or do not only will be repeated ad nauseum in the press, but will also be used as a club against every other member of the party, probably would tend to either try harder to avoid scandal, or at least cover their tracks better.

Just a random thought, but the blatant disregard for laws, morals, and potential embarrassment seems to be more common on the left side of the aisle. That may be true in this case as well.

Just another typical case of dems accusing others what they themselves are guilty of.

Government needs a flush....put them all in the sewer where they belong.

we again get a glimpse of how our legal system works and some are shocked and outraged!
if you are very rich and write a check you can get a lot more "justice" Epstein was so arrogant as to
think he could get away with it again...on second thought maybe he can. Michael Jackson showed you could "Beat it, Beat it,Beat it"


Acosta was just a cog in our wheels of justice.
i was surprised he resigned.

This reminds me of a bit of wisdom from my TI way back in basic training. He reminded us prior to our first visit off base that "a hard d### has no conscience", which is certainly true. I agree that having zero morals, you'd expect our domestic enemy liberals to play a significant role in something like this. But there are plenty of republicans who also think morals are for the common folk, and have been caught with their pants down in various schemes over the years. My guess is that if this is what speculation claims, there will be plenty on both sides of the corrupt political aisle associated with it.

My biggest question, if true, is whether anyone will actually be provided an orange jumpsuit and silver bracelets over this. By now you'd have to be a liberal dumber than AOC to not know there is a two tier justice system in this country, with certain groups simply immune from the annoyance of "laws".
