Okay so, hyposcrisy time.
Epstein has been a known entity for a long time. I started seeing his face and story back in the 4/pol/ days, and I'm assuming his name and antics have been in the conspiracy circle for longer than that, especially considering he beat a 36 count rape charge that went federal 11 years ago. Obviously Epstein is fucked up, and his ties run deeps but lets count the ways this gets really fucked up now with them putting the heat on Acosta after signing off on his plea aggrement in 2008.
Acosta was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. The plea deal granted immunity from further federal prosecution. A state attorney can't be the one to do that.>Acosta later said he had been told that Epstein "belonged to intelligence", was "above his pay grade" and to "leave it alone".https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epsteins-sick-story-played-out-for-years-in-plain-sight?ref=scrollhttps://archive.is/BmL69
The investigation starts in March of 05 and ends in June of 08. This is happening under the auspices of George W. Bush's second administration, the FBI investigation going through Robert Mueller and the deal itself coming from Alberto Gonzales' office, if not himself directly.
Gonzales' had a fair amount of his tenure scrutinized and later resigned.
Now lets get to Acosta. As Secretary of Labor the guy is 11th in line to the presidency in the unlikely event that several people should die in rapid succession. A mostly useless contingency but a necessary one none the less. This guy got through a confirmation hearing that took 8 days and officially voted in about a month later, and he got 8 democrats to voted for him.
Contrasting this with Kavanaugh's confirmation, now the Legislative backdrop was much different then, but it took 4 months, on some specious claims from 30 years ago. While with Acosta, his past bugaboo seemingly is of no concern and possibly never even brought up. NOW all of a sudden it is a big deal that Acosta signed off on a deal, that came in through the feds, that put Epstein in jail for 13 months, supposed to go to Federal prison but they let him stay in county? And they think Acosta is ultimately the one to blame for this shit. TBH I have no dog in this fight, I don't know or care much about Acosta, and haven't till this side of the story came out. Other than wanting to see Epstein get some sort of open trial, name names etc. But the way this is all playing out really makes you wonder.
Interview Gonzales, Mueller or W. about this. Heck the latter's daughter is on national TV every goddamn morning, throw him a softball and have her interview him.
