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?

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.

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

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.

This is a case of ESPIONAGE that Acosta is embroiled in. Acosta said he was told, " Epstein IS intelligence, LEAVE! HIM! ALONE! Epstein is above your pay grade."So these innocents simply because they did not have the pedigree as dictated by the zionist tumudic code of ethics are to be used and disposed of at your pleasure So the Goy the children of the world with out the pedigree were relegated to being rags, to be used and abused ,tools for ISIS=Israeli secret Intelligence Services. What you don't think AIPAC, and their elk ,the world over; who regard our children, rich or otherwise, but goy, never the less compromise the worlds governing officials; simply by bribery and threats of job loss alone? Do you??? This operations been in the works for decades, there are perhaps 1000's of children from all over the Earth violated and discarded like trash for the powerful to have their way.

Apparently, Epstein kept photographic "trophies" of his child victims in states of undress. In tonight's bail denial request, the SDNY states ***But the ongoing and forward-looking danger posed by the defendant is further demonstrated by the defendant’s maintenance of a substantial collection of photographic trophies of his victims and other young females in his mansion, as discovered by the Government through its search warrants. As indicated in the Detention Memo, the many discs found in the defendant’s residence included those with hand-written labels including the following: “Young [Name] + [Name],” “Misc nudes 1,” and “Girl pics nude.” Not surprisingly, the Government has found that such discs contain photographs of sexually suggestive photographs of fully- or partially-nude females appearing to be underage.***

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.

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

I may be in the minority here, but I fail to see how what he did there informs what kind of job he does as labor secretary. Plus, he was very good for unions.

I just listened to conference on marine one tarmac.
I agree with Acosta. The country needs to focus on the positive.
Let the Justice Dept handle the bad.
We are at all time record numbers.
Trump is rounding up pervs.
It's a good thing.
