As I said yesterday, having this fellow around at all is the worst optics ever – especially since the media is running with the narrative that Epstein was a friend of Trump and mostly ignoring the fact that he was BFF with Bill Clinton.
Actually coming out and vocally defending this unscrupulous fellow is well beyond the pale.
Since late last year, different factions have been pressuring Donald Trump to sack Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, but as of Tuesday evening, the president was still sticking to a script that he’s honed when confronting allegations against his powerful friends and allies: double down and stand by your man.
“For two and a half years, he’s been just an excellent secretary of Labor. He’s done a fantastic job,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday. “If you go back and look at everybody else’s decisions, whether it’s a U.S. attorney or an assistant U.S. attorney or a judge… I would think you’d probably find that they would wish they maybe did it a different way. I do hear that there were a lot of people involved in that decision, not just him. I can only say this from what I know, and what I do is he’s been a great—really great—secretary of Labor.”
The president added that “we’ll look at it very carefully, we’ll be looking at that very carefully, OK?” In February, Trump’s then-press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House was “certainly looking into” Secretary Acosta’s handling of a secret plea deal. It is unclear if that review ever concluded or even started, and if Trump on Tuesday was referring to a different, or the same, alleged internal review.
It’s not the first time in this administration—or in his life as a businessman—Trump has expressed sympathy with his powerful friends and allies in the face of damning allegations, even in situations where people have been accused ofhorrific sexual assault.
Still, some of Trump’s aides and confidants have privately urged the president to show Acosta the door. And many of the Labor secretary’s prominent defenders have gone publicly silent as the Epstein scandal mounts.
Starting in at least late February, several close advisers and aides have recommended to President Trump that he ditch Secretary Acosta, in large part due to public-relations damage done by a Miami Herald investigative series, according to one senior administration official and another source with knowledge of the conversations. In February, a federal judge also ruled that prosecutors in Florida, including Acosta, broke the law in signing the plea agreement with Epstein.
“The administration should have gotten rid of Acosta after the original Miami Herald story,” said a former Trump administration official. “Even if he did nothing technically illegal, the optics of the plea deal are awful. To give a monster like Epstein such a friendly deal should disqualify Acosta from ever holding another job in the public sector again.”
For now, the secretary of Labor is sticking to his guns, but in recent weeks, federal prosecutors in Georgia met with victims to discuss potential remedies to Epstein’s illegal 2007 plea agreement inked by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami—and at least one victim demanded that Acosta resign.
Spencer Kuvin, the attorney for that victim, said her priority is to see Epstein charged for his Florida crimes. She also asked for the government to make Epstein’s entire case file public, including external and internal communications within Acosta’s former office relating to the financier’s sweetheart deal. “And then lastly, I know my client said, ‘I want Acosta to step down,’” Kuvin told The Daily Beast last month.
Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled Acosta’s office violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act by keeping Epstein’s victims in the dark about the controversial 2007 non-prosecution agreement (NPA). Indeed, Acosta and his team worked behind closed doors (including at a secret “breakfast meeting,” according to court records) with Epstein’s high-powered attorneys to downgrade the charges to state court.
On Tuesday, Kuvin said of Acosta, “It’s truly unbelievable that he continues to hold a job in one of the highest offices of the United States.”
“So now you have a U.S. Attorney who broke the law who is now running the Department of Labor,” Kuvin told The Daily Beast. “How does somebody like that keep their job?”
“It’s unfathomable that the president would keep someone like that on the job. But sadly, it’s unsurprising given Trump’s history with the defendant in this case. Trump socialized with Epstein. He was photographed with Epstein, called him a ‘terrific guy,’” Kuvin said, referring to Trump’s 2002 praises of the pervy financier.
“They lived only blocks away from each other in Palm Beach,” Kuvin added of Epstein and Trump, “ran in the same circles, went to the same parties.”
“Epstein is a man who has and had very powerful friends,” Kuvin said. “Whether a royal in England, with his friendship with Prince Andrew, Trump here in the United States, politicians like [Bill] Clinton that he knew and socialized with.”
Kuvin continued, “The press needs to stay vigilant now on Epstein Part 2. Because in Epstein Part 1, he got all the breaks.”
This looks absolutely horrible.
And this case isn’t going away.
Epstein has been nailed, he cannot be unnailed, and the Jews have no choice but to throw him under the bus.
The fact of reality is that the feds raided his home and found child pornography images. And the media has already reported that they found those, so that fact can’t be buried. And presumably, some of the girls in the images are also witnesses in the case.
There is no possibility of weaseling out of this. Possession of the images alone would be a 10+ year prison sentence. And then when you have the girls in the images saying they not only had sex with him, but were trafficked for sex to other men, you have an incredibly serious situation, where there just is no possibility of Jewing your way out of this.
It’s also not 2007 anymore. We have a much different internet. And people are paying a lot of attention to this. Everyone is. Because the left-wing media is linking him to Trump and the right-wing media is linking him to the Clintons. Everybody wants this story blown completely up.
What will get buried is that he is obviously an agent of the Mossad whose entire purpose was to build blackmail files on powerful people. They are rolling with “he was a pervert with powerful friends who enjoyed partaking in his perversions,” and that narrative will stick.
No one is going to ask where the fuck he got all of this money. It will just be “oh you know, he worked in finance in New York and so he was really rich – many such cases.”
They’re claiming he has maybe a billion dollars. But his house in New York is probably worth $100 million, making it the most expensive townhouse ever in history.
And he owned… a whole lot of other prime real estate.
It is the most obvious thing in the world that this guy’s entire purpose was to go all around the world with an entire network of underage girls and invite people to have sex with them in rooms with cameras. After they did that, they would then be approved to move up in whatever industry they were in.
I don’t know why Trump is protecting Acosta.
He has certainly shown that he is willing to do what the media tells him to do in many different types of situations.
Off the top of my head:
- Firing Michael Flynn
- Bombing Syria
- Bombing Syria again
- Saying Russia “probably” hacked the DNC server
- Signing an executive order to repeal Obama era policies on child separations at the border
And you could go on and on.
So he isn’t protecting Acosta to spite the media.
The good news is, he doesn’t appear to be worried that he is himself going to get caught up in the Epstein sex scandal. I personally doubt he would ever be stupid enough to have sex with this Jew’s honeypot girls. Furthermore, he’s been accused – and caught – in a bunch of different sex scandals, and none of them have been underage girls.
Plus, he was already rich, and didn’t need to give up blackmail on himself in order to get moved up in business.
I think it’s probably true that he only knew Epstein casually, because they were both rich and both lived in New York and Florida.
So maybe by not firing Acosta, he is trying to bait the media into running with the narrative he was involved in Epstein’s Jewish honeypot scandals, in order to later be cleared?
Or maybe it is just Jared Kushner telling him not to fire him?
But these are bad, bad optics.
