and again...the Clintons get away clean by using the MSM to point the finger at someone else.
The GOP-e was busy hiding in the basement.

They don’t call the GOP the Surrender Party for nothing.

Carly Fiorina could be a good Secretary of Labor.

He should have never been appointed.

I don’t care if he was forced into giving that plea deal to Epstein. Too much baggage.

Unless he was willing to expose how he was forced into it should it come up then he should have stayed away from position.

As predicted by a women on the five, she said earlier in the week he’d be out by week end.

And, of course, the media will make this resignation somehow a de facto admission of Trump complicity in this mess, ignoring that it was mostly Democrats.

Dems and MSM successful in making Acosta and Trump the focus of the Epstein case rather than Clinton and the many Dems who benefited from their association with Epstein. Mission accomplished.

Yes, they can’t focus on Acosta anymore because he just fell on the sword.

It is likely this pervert Epstein did do some work for the spies in getting compromising stuff on people.

Prince Phillip ostracized Andrew and his family..it might be in part because of these shenanigans although it was blamed on Fergie.

"Lay off Epstein --he's INTEL."

WHOSE intel..?

Ours..? It's interesting that the terms CIA and FBI were omitted --just "intel".

Was he intel for another country..?

Was Les Wexner also..?

As I pointed out a few days ago - the thought he was in the administration for his "protection" was ridiculous - and that once again this was a bad choice that would once again bite the president in the butt.

And also as many have pointed out - unless the JE case breaks hard against huge dems - Acosta and the fact he was hired by Trump will be a millstone around the neck of this campaign until November 2020 - especially if there are new charges AFTER 2008 that a good deal would have prevented. This is the playbook of the left.

First thing that happened after Epstein finished his Florida “punishment” is he flew to his NYC home. There, they had a big Yom Kippur buffet at his spacious home in honor of his release.

George Stephanopolous and Katie Couric, who also repeatedly flew out there, were in attendance.

Over 100 prominent NYC socialites attended the dinner, including many who saw fit to bring their KIDS.

To a dinner for a world-famous famous pedophile.
