3. What's new? He's done this with all of them.

But no one turns on him with any real result, except for Cohen perhaps.

7. Most of those people weren't billionaires.

Epstein is a well-connected billionaire who has a lot of dirt on a lot of people.

He's not going to lay down voluntarily for this bus.

15. Lots of reports now saying Epstein was not a billionaire

Not as rich as he made out to be.

Might have gotten investors to invest with him because he had something on them - ya think??

4. Epstein seems to have a complete aversion to going down. Pulling Trump ...

in with him will be totally unavoidable for him whether it benefits his inevitable future or not.

6. Does it matter?

Epstein is so filthy and gross, everyone in Manhattan could be at risk of some kind of infection. Egads, he is a nasty, nasty thing! He’s like pedophile “Pigpen” walking around in a feculent cloud.

I doubt trump can get far enough away from him.

11. Simple question: Did Trump attend a 1992 party* w/only Epstein and 28 underage girls @ Mar a Lag?


And if so how can any republican and or Fox News person still defend him?

* an alleged cocaine and sex party

NY Times:

The year was 1992 and the event was a “calendar girl” competition, something that George Houraney, a Florida-based businessman who ran American Dream Enterprise, had organized at Mr. Trump’s request.

“I arranged to have some contestants fly in,” Mr. Houraney recalled in an interview on Monday. “At the very first party, I said, ‘Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.’ It was him and Epstein.”

Mr. Houraney, who had just partnered with Mr. Trump to host events at his casinos, said he was surprised. “I said, ‘Donald, this is supposed to be a party with V.I.P.s. You’re telling me it’s you and Epstein?’”

skip

(and after that party did Trump go on record and say that Jeff liked young women)

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Mr. Trump told New York magazine in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

17. Pence knew all about Trump, Russia, and the Elections.

And right after the 2016 Election Pence went on record about "the other side" using
Russia to delegitimize the outcome. Besides he was picked by Paul Manafort to be veep.

12. But........ according to one of Jeffrey's girls, Jeffrey had cameras

and questioned the girls extensively about their encounters after they were with various men. Blackmail to invest with him - some think. Trump could be on one of those (insurance) CD's - we can only hope.

16. Not necessarily

If Trump has gotten a message to Epstein saying, "Shut up, and I'll help. Rat on me, and you go away for life," I think Epstein will just clam up. Later, when he finds out Trump plans to abandon him anyway, THEN he'll open up.

But by THAT time, who will be interested in listening?

That is also why he was so quick to get rid of Acosta. He wants to put this Epstein matter behind him as soon as possible. For whatever reason....

21. One thing about paedophile runners is they keep evidence on their johns so no one squeals.

I would be very surprised if there is not a horde of evidence somewhere that Epstein has.

You do not run that sort of operation and that sort of thing without blackmail material.

23. Barr didn't do a 180 on the case for any old reason

I think we can assume the AG will be ahead of any Trump negative news long before it touches Trump legally. It still might cause bad press, but Trump voters are unable to process news so no big deal there.

25. Keep this in mind..We are only in Act 1 of at least a 4 Act Play. Also....

Since I really don't know how many acts this show is, it could be 3, or it could be 5. No one knows. But it live, and going on at your nearest newspaper, computer, magazine, TV or radio. Which ever you like, it will have news on this one. Strange show. I thought there could be only one show like this, and it was called, "Watergate" but I was wrong. I wouldn't say this is Watergate 2, because it is different and the cast members are different, and this one involves another country and the other Watergate only involved this country. But the theme is the same: greed and power. ...Oh..this show has lots of ...SEX... Epstein as a director must like sex. And...what direction will this go? Is the Epstein thing part of another play or show?
Or.....is it all part of the same show?...Don't ask me, As Sgt Schultz used to say,..............
... " I know nothing."

28. I think so - except if his money is involved

I think the other shoe to drop with Epstein is the financial aspect.

It seems that Epstein may be a corrupt businessman? Does he have dirt on other corrupt business people? Money laundering? Russian money?

I'm thinking that's why Barr has not recused from future prosecutions - where this may lead. If Epstein wants to offer up dirt to try to save his skin. He wants to know to bury it.

I do think it would be political kryptonite to try to pardon Epstein but we all know how Trump feels about trying to dig into his finances. If Epstein has anything on his finances then this will get really dicey.

29. All Epstein has to do is make it past Election Day 2020.

Who knows how long the trial will be or take- Epstein may escape conviction or may not be convicted before Election Day 2020. After that, what does Trump care?
