    If a prosecutor can get a multibillionaire with the most powerful men in the world, presidents and entertainment moguls, etc., as co-participants in his criminal activities to plead guilty and subject themselves to house arrest........would it not be appropriate to give him credit for doing something no one else would or could ever have done before? Prior to #me too, as well. Pretty bright guy if you look at it objectively......maybe?

    And I suppose this is your version of looking at it OBJECTIVELY??

    Curious as to why you are a Trump defender in light of what YOUR OWN WORDS said.
    Specifically you said ;
    If a prosecutor can get a multibillionaire with the most powerful men in the world, presidents and entertainment moguls, etc., as co-participants in his criminal activities ...

    Since you claim he had presidents (plural) as ...co-conspirators in his criminal activity, .... and since Trump and Clinton are the only two presidents associated with him I would think you would be calling for Clinton's& Trump to be prosecuted and Trumps immediate impeachment.

    But no!! Instead you continue to defend Trump and claim that Acosta is a "pretty bright guy"
    AMAZING!!

    As to your pretty bright guy he also claimed that if he had work this out that Epstein would have walked free without any jail time. incorrect
    That is a lie.... or as "Stan the ban" and his band of merry men would call it "hyperbole"
    Whether or not he would have avoided jail time on state charges is their relevant they still could have filed criminal charges and the 52 page Federal indictment that was drafted in the case carried a lifetime prison sentence.
    I would consider a 13 month gig where you got picked up in your limo and got to spend 12 hours a day in your plush home or office for 6 days a week to be a pretty cushy alternative to a lifetime in prison.

    According to the Miami Herald, Acosta met privately with one of Epstein’s lawyers, Jay Lefkowitz — a former colleague in D.C. — and gave Epstein’s legal team a bizarre amount of control over the plea deal’s terms. (Other Epstein lawyers included Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth Starr.) “Thank you for the commitment you made to me,’’ Lefkowitz wrote to Acosta after their meeting, referring to Acosta’s promise that he would not contact “any of the identified individuals, potential witnesses or potential civil claimants.” The deal was kept secret until it was finalized.

    This is an unheard-of deal and unheard-of it's also ILLEGAL according to the Crime Victims Rights law which mandates that victims be kept informed and apprised of the goings on in the proceedings.
    Not believe this and probably more significantly the plea deal gave Federal immunity to ANYONE that may have been considered a co-conspirator with Epstein.
    INCREDIBLE!!
    Kind of makes you wonder who those co-conspirators may have been. I guarantee you that wasn't put in there to protect the likes of you or me.
    If in some Twisted way you seem to think the age of the #me-too movement would protect or justify pedophilia, I would strongly disagree

    In short what you see as a "pretty smart guy" and part of Trumps " best and brightest" I see as a slimy huge part of the swamp and possible protector of some of the biggest Gators in that swamp

    Mn, I am not a Forbes reader, but the few "nightly news" I've seen reports him as "billionaire hedge fund.....". I think Manafort is in prison for treason and conspiring with hostile foreign governments in 2016 an 17......right?

    Marc,
    Our friend Franco opened the "epstein" thread as if trump and epstein were the only two buds involved. I said, and I paraphrase, "both? trump, clinton, hollywood should....blah, blah, blah". I think I am on record here with feelings that ALL involved meet the same fate. Check it out.

    You opened this thread with, "best and brightest...." like acosta is some dumbass. Neither of us know him. However, for a prosecutor to get a guilty plea on a very rich, very powerful person for any crime proves, to me anyway, he is not a dimwit. Neither you nor I ever sat in acosta's chair when ascroft/mulkasey/holder or whoever it was called and said whatever they said. For all we know acosta may have had it all and been ordered to plea by his boss's, boss's, boss. "Bright" and "slimy" are not mutually exclusive.

    Let me add, if a man has power to affect his own prosecution federally, it is my experience he will have infinitely more power locally and in his home state. I don't think you have any idea, and neither do I, whether epstein would have served one day under any other circumstance, charge or indictment.

    In my opinion the #metoo movement has opened up the willingness of people, women in particular, to be willing to see the fault in and sacrifice their idols a great deal more than they would have been willing to twelve or fifteen years ago. For example, women never gave an inch on clinton as president and loved him more after the Lewinsky affair and his perjury, but now they are willing to admit things like, "she was barely of majority and he the most powerful man in the world. Consent is not possible."
    In my opinion, if this were clinton as president in 1997, radical feminists would have been seeking out the neglectful parents to blame in defending clinton and epstein. Yes it's changed things.

    That said, socialists, communists and radical feminists would today put past presidents clinton and obama in a guillotine if it meant they could get trump in one too. That is all i have in common with them.
