Skip to comments.Surprise! CNN Turns Epstein Scandal Into Just Another Trump Admin Scalp
Posted on 07/14/2019 11:52:02 AM PDT by Its All Over Except ...
On Sunday, CNNs Brian Stelter and Phil Mattingly warped the recent sentencing of child abuser and Democratic mega-donor Jeffrey Epstein into a story about (who else?) Donald Trump. Following the resignation of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta who had come under scrutiny for a shockingly favorable plea deal he had previously granted Epstein as a federal prosecutor both Stelter and Mattingly brandished Acostas resignation as the latest example of instability and high turnover within the White House.
While CNNs Saturday lineup featured a handful of news briefs about Epsteins return to prison, by Sunday the serial child trafficker and molester was no longer the centerpiece of CNNs reporting about his own prosecution. Nor, of course, were his many victims. ...
The rest of the segment resembled a victory dance over the acquisition of the latest Trump administration scalp. This included a graphic which showed, as Stelter put it: the other Trump officials who also left their jobs in the wake of really important investigative reporting.

And no mentions of Katie Couric, Stephanopoulos, royalty, the Clintons, etc, wining and dining (or otherwsie hobknobbing?) with Epstein.
Couric, Stephie, Bill Clinton, Dershowitz, and on and on and on.
This is a target-rich environment for them to bring them up in connection with Epstein.
And yet they fail to do so again...
From the postings and comments I have read, it would seem that the ONLY person whoever booted Epstein OFF his property was Donald Trump.
I mean, Acosta is a minor figure in Trump's cabinet, not worthy of such an effort. And the COST -
A billionaire donor, with resources and connections all over, is lost to them.
The mudslinging will tar many of Epstein's circle of friends, most of them Democrats. Most prominent in the group: Bill Clinton.
Would they really sacrifice all that to score a glancing blow on one of Trump's less important appointees?
Don't underestimate President Trump. He knows things...
↓ YouTube is hiding this video and pushing everything it has that accuses Trump to the top! ↓
President Trump knows something bad about the Clintons and their deep state goons.
Perhaps with all these endless lists of prominent people and Democrat politicians who went to the island, we need a list of all those who did not go to the island - might be shorter
Alec Baldwin /giggle
Brian Stelter ROFL!
I wonder what Strzok was doing there...
Harvard To Keep Epstein Giftj, By Nicholas M. Ciarelli, Crimson Staff Writer, September 13, 2006
After money manager Jeffrey Epstein was charged in July with soliciting sex from prostitutes, several recipients of his donations distanced themselves from the New York billionaire. But though Epstein wrote a $6.5 million check to Harvardwith the possibility of additional millions down the linethe University said yesterday that it has no plans to return the gift.
The donation, first announced in 2003, finances the work of mathematical biologist Martin A. Nowak, the director of Harvards Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. Epstein agreed to consider raising his total contribution to $30 million after a review of the programs progress. That review has not yet taken place, according to the University.
After Epstein was charged with soliciting prostitution at his Palm Beach, Fla., mansion, several politicians who had accepted campaign money from the billionaire returned the donations. They include Eliot L. Spitzer, the New York attorney general who is running for governor; Mark A. Green, a Democratic candidate for attorney general of New York; and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, according to the New York Times and New York Daily News.
Harvard will not join them. Mr. Epsteins gift is funding important research using mathematics to study areas such as evolutionary theory, viruses, and cancers, a Harvard spokesman said yesterday. The University is not considering returning this gift.
Interim President Derek C. Bok, who served as University president from 1971 to 1991.... In extreme cases, Bok wrote in the letter, Harvard should refuse contributions from donors who have earned their money immorally, but on the whole, I would be inclined to accept such donations on the ground that the tangible benefits of using the money...should overcome the more abstract, symbolic considerations that might lead us to turn down such benefactions.
I am not yet persuaded that Harvard should have an obligation to investigate each donor and impose detailed moral standards prior to accepting donations, he wrote then.
Epstein, whose defense attorneys include Alan M. Dershowitz, the Frankfurter professor of law, last month pled not guilty to the charge of soliciting prostitution.
In an affidavit released by the Palm Beach Police Department, the police said it had probable cause to also charge Epstein with lewd and lascivious molestation and unlawful sexual activity with a minor. (Epstein, through his attorneys, has denied knowing that any of the women who visited his house were underage.) A grand jury later declined to indict Epstein on those additional charges.
“abstract, symbolic” child rape and Victoria’s Secret casting couches.
Sounds like Harvard should be renamed to Have hard or Have Some.
Link for post #13:
Trump kicked Epstein out of Mar-a-Lago after finding out what Epstein did to a 14 year old.
Trump banned him for life.
Trump has never been to Lolita Island.
Trump voluntarily gave a statement to the police after Epstein’s arrest and the police said that Trump could not have been more forthcoming.

What did ya expect?
CNN is the 1984 Ministry of Truth.
"Y'know, those rich people all just take care of each other. The Clintons and Trumps are just fat cats protecting each other. Those missing emails? Ya, I bet I know what happened there. Hillary sold the Russians the uranium and then it just so happens that the next president is colluding with the Russians? You know it too! Trump cant find the 30,000 emails because he doesn't want to find them! Hes helping her hide them! We need to demand an investigation of those emails and send them both to jail! Its for the children."
Or how about something like...
"Trump is such a perv! His history with women and that recording? His being best friends with Epstein? You know why hes rounding up all these human traffickers and arresting them right? Because they know what hes been up to! We need to demand an investigation and have congress release to us everything the FBI knows about human trafficking and just what part HE played in it. Then We'll see who goes to jail! Its for the children!"
Yep. Apparently so.
One Cardinal that has been on the run for some time said publicly (before he disappeared for awhile) that Francis had been involved in child trafficking.
