Is it even possible to find one decent person in a position of power? Or is it a forgone conclusion, that anyone today serving in the White House is a criminal? Or perhaps it is a prerequisite?

He deserves to be disbarred for failing to inform these victims and making this ridiculous deal AND not acting when Epstein violated the term of this, "agreement,". He deserves to be prosecuted as an accessory after the fact. No deals for anyone who commits such vicious, irreparable harms against children. Unfit, just like Trump and the rest of his gang.

Acosta "didn't have to resign", but Trump didn't have to accept his resignation, either.

Looks like we found a premier location where the Freemasons and our country's loyalists go frolic. Not loyal to our rule of law. That makes these rich and famous clients in league with folks that do not care about the will of the people. WHo be pullin the strings? Left Right, brown people, middle class vs poor. They be conning you.

Hunger game ... acosta has fallen. But Congress can still subpoena him to ask about Dept of Labor unemployment numbers, sex trafficking protection roll back, unions, etc.

He should've never been given such a high esteemed position to begin with. Think about... If he & Epstein could get away with what they did, imagine what other dark secrets other politicians may be hiding. We seriously need to get these CROOKS out of American politics. They take us for fools & they're making us the laughing stock of the planet. Get these CROOKS out of office & in prison, in general population with the rest of the felons. Starting with the Racist in Chief himself. His whole administration are unqualified CROOKS.

Alex Acosta should be prosecuted for keeping the "deal" from the victims. From what I understand, that was illegal. It's time for pedophiles, and pedophile enablers to be stopped once and for all.

Good.....now there's nobody in the administration to focus on in the Jeffrey Epstein issue.
Now all the focus will go to Bill Clinton who was Jeffrey's best friend

All you independent journalists and investigators out there, time to focus your attention and commitment on this incredibly important case and not be distracted by the sleight of hand the mainstream will be trying.
