    …”Federal prosecutors, under former Miami U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, broke the law when they concealed a plea agreement from more than 30 underage victims who had been sexually abused by wealthy New York hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

    While the decision marks a victory for crime victims, the federal judge, Kenneth A. Marra, stopped short of overturning Epstein’s plea deal, or issuing an order resolving the case. He instead gave federal prosecutors 15 days to confer with Epstein’s victims and their attorneys to come up with a settlement. The victims did not seek money or damages as part of the suit…”

        “The victims did not seek money or damages”, and I read in a different article (cite?) that it would be very unlikely for Epstein to be reqired to serve more time
        UNLESS (and here’s the hope) that someone (or more) comes forward in a different venue to file charges. Since there were 40 or so girls, aged 13 to 16 at the time, I really hope that a few come forward and nail this guy.

        And wouldn’t it be wonderful to drag slick Willie into this mess for his reported 26 trips on the Lolita Express to Orgy Island.

          …”The Department of Justice has opened an investigation into Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta’s role in negotiating a controversial plea deal with a wealthy New York investor accused of molesting more than 100 underage girls in Palm Beach.

          The probe is in response to a request by Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who was critical of the case following a series of stories in the Miami Herald. The Herald articles detailed how Acosta, then the U.S. attorney for Southern Florida, and other DOJ attorneys worked hand-in-hand with defense lawyers to cut a lenient plea deal with multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2008.”…

            Don’t forget Acosta is a long time Clintonista.

            Ken Starr was also hired by Epstein. Lends credibility to the conspiracy theorists who think Starr botched the Clinton investigation into White Water on purpose.

              “UBS executives knew that UBS’s cross-border business violated the law,” said R. Alexander Acosta, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. “They refused to stop this activity…and in fact instructed their bankers to grow the business. The reason was money — the business was too profitable to give up. This was not mere compliance oversight, but rather a knowing crime motivated by greed and disrespect for the law.”

              When UBS, which could have lost its ability to conduct business in the U.S. if successfully prosecuted, balked at the IRS demand that it turn over information for all 52,000 accounts, the IRS filed a legal action seeking to compel disclosure. That is when, at the behest of the Swiss government, Hillary Clinton stepped in to negotiate a deal that prevented the IRS from gaining access to more than 91 percent of the illicit, tax-evading offshore accounts.”

          Epstein is connected to the Clintons. Bill took dozens of trips to his island without his SS detail.

          PDJT was friends with Epstein and went once as well. He never went back. PDJT ended up banning Epstein from Mara Lago after Epstein acted like a creep to another member’s young daughter.

          Watching Epstein be saved by the Clintonistas and the Democrats was a motivating factor in PDJT running for office, IMHO. It’s why he went from being friendly with Hillary at his wedding to calling her a criminal on national television.

      This story was resurrected in 2016 in an attempt to smear PDJT and link him to Epstein. Remember the anonymous women who accused PDJT of abuse? The cases were thrown out of court because they were ridiculous. It was another case of projection, the Clintons trying to smear him with their own dirt.

      They didn’t count on the fact that many PDJT supporters like myself had been following this case for years, and knew about the Clinton connections. It’s one reason why I voted for PDJT.

      But I think they will bring this back for 2020. They no longer care about openly lying. I’ve noticed older articles are being scrubbed and are no longer available. I couldn’t find the article detailaing how PDJT banned Epstein from Mara Lago. If anyone can find it, please save it. We need to have this info ready to counter the fake news narratives.

      Mary just another example of the Democrat Party control of the FBI to the benefit of the party. With Democrat control of the DOJ/FBI/Federal judiciary the party elites and donors could rape underage girls with ease without fear of any prosecution! The FBI needs disbanded if it cannot defend underage children from despicable perverted Democrat pedophiles! Our Founders didn’t want a Federal police force because they knew it would be corrupted eventually as evidenced by our FBI! God help us and Godspeed President Trump!

    According to a criminal complaint, Abdi Yusuf Hassan was part of a conspiracy to kidnap the journalist in January 2012 in Galkayo, Somalia, and demand $20 million in ransom. The journalist was released Sept. 23, 2014.”

    Of course, the AP just had to out the identity of the guy who was abducted…

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/21/ohio-rep-jim-jordan-calls-michael-cohens-testimony-a-charade/ Ohio representative Jim Jordan lambasted Democrats for “promoting an admitted liar,” Michael Cohen, in an attempt to jump-start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
    “Giving a platform to Mr. Cohen is beneath the dignity of the Congress, and I am saddened that Democrats have sunk so low as to promote an admitted liar just to satisfy Tom Steyer and the political forces on the left who will settle for nothing less than impeachment,” Jordan said in his Thursday statement, specifically targeting the billionaire currently dividing the left. “This charade is an affront to our committee’s constitutional obligations,” he added.

    Jordan was responding to Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings’ announcement that Cohen would testify publicly before the panel next Wednesday, despite having already admitted he lied to Congress. Both Jordan and fellow Trump ally, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, have expressed their displeasure with the decision

    – Jussy Smollet campaigns with and for Kamala. They know each other.
    – Smollet tries to stir racism and rage for anti-LGBTXYZ activity through a despicable hoax.
    – Kamala tweets in strong support of Smollet.
    – Kamala surreptitiously sneaks in anti-gay language into the anti-lynching bill.
    – Furor over the Smollet tricks turns into smoke when the hoax is uncovered by the Chicago police.
    – Kamala quickly deletes her tweet supporting lying Smollet.
    – Kamala and Booker are running for POTUS in 2020. Other names are expected to pop up.
    – Bernie decides to play the same role as he played in the 2016 election.
    – Rumors start flying about Michelle Obama possibly being the 2010 DNC presidential nominee.
    – Would a law giving special status to LGBTXYZ individuals apply to transvestites? Of course.

      Best Post of the Blog!
      Your linked article should be required reading for all Americans, including anyone claiming to be Conservative.
      Disparate Impact Theory has always been a weapon of Political Correct Utopian Communist to force Unconstitutional preferences based on Race and Sex. and any other “protected class” they create.
      Be sure to add “Pathological Altruism” to the list of the Curses of Modernity.

      “Pathological Altruism is generally defined as a sincere attempt to help others that instead harms others or oneself, and is “an unhealthy focus on others to the detriment of one’s own needs.” Several of the contributors offer tantalizing definitions: PA is likely when people “falsely believe that they caused the other’s problems, or falsely believe that they have the means to relieve the person of suffering.” Or, it is “the false belief that one’s own success, happiness, or well-being is a source of unhappiness for others.” PA “often involves self-righteousness,” and can result in “impulsive and ineffective efforts to equalize or level the playing field.”

    Judge Napolitano Was Right! Obama Used British Intelligence to Spy on Trump

    Judge Andrew Napolitano: “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA. He didn’t use the CIA. He didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use Department of Justice. He used GCHQ. What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database. So by simply having two people go to them saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.”
