Would not be surprising at all if Epstein was deep state.


Best-selling author Vicky Ward reported Tuesday that Alexander Acosta told the Trump transition team when asked about his handling of Jeffrey Epstein's case that "I was told Epstein 'belonged to intelligence' and to leave it alone."
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. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)


[...] In 2007 and 2008, as the FBI prepared a 53-page indictment that would charge Epstein with sex crimes, Epstein's powerful legal team played the influence card.


After the one meeting with then-U.S. Attorney Acosta, where presumably "intelligence" was mentioned, the indictment was shelved and, instead, Epstein signed a non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors, pleading guilty to one count of solicitation of prostitution and one count of procurement of minors for prostitution, which earned him a cushy 13 months in county jail, from where he was allowed to leave to work at his office and go for walks.

Interesting, and a 'best selling author' no less.

I think this one is great:

Report: Trump Considering Tucker Carlson For Vice President
President Donald Trump is considering Tucker Carlson as his Vice Presidential pick for 2020, according to a new report.

Perhaps Pence needs to find a way to be even more sycophantic.

Informationliberation!

I like this one:

Bill Clinton Claims He Only Flew With Jeffrey Epstein 4 Times, Court Records Show At Least 26 Times
Bill Clinton claimed in a statement released by his spokesman on Monday evening that he "knows nothing" about Jeffrey Epstein's alleged crimes and only flew on his private jet four times, but court records of Epstein's flight logs show he traveled with him at least 26 times.

which, naturally, brings up the question of how many times Trump flew with Epstein, both claimed and real.

Informationliberation!

Hold the press!

Nothing to do with Epstein yet, though I'm sure it's coming down the pike, but this one is hilarious for its blend of hysteria and racism:

Buying Ice Cream In The New America
Remember how you used to be able to go to the store and buy ice cream without having to go to the cash register, show photo ID to an employee and ask permission from police?
Those days are done.

except they aren't, and is The New America the same one Trump and his deplorables have been going on about?

Informationliberation!

What does that say if the Intel agencies were involved in Epstein "proclivities"? Maybe honey trap operations?

ANOTHER winger source? Anyone ever heard of THIS ONE?

Think about it people, were that true, he would have never been charged to begin with! A year with his name in court filings and newspapers?

I call BULLSHIT.
