    Epstein case: how wealthy and powerful men can get away with sexual abuse

    Jeffrey Epstein might go to prison after all.

    The money manager has been accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls, bringing them to his home for massages during which he masturbated or had intercourse with them. He was indicted in 2007, but as Julie K. Brown reported at the Miami Herald, he ultimately got just 13 months in a county jail, thanks to a deal signed by Alexander Acosta, then the US attorney for Miami and now President Trump’s secretary of labor.

    On Saturday, however, Epstein was arrested in New Jersey and charged with sex trafficking, in connection with allegations that he recruited young girls for abuse at his homes in New York and Palm Beach. If convicted, he could face 45 years in prison.

    Read the rest at the link - too much info to adequately distill into the OP, but for those who don't want to click:

    Epstein is going down.
    A lot of other powerful men could go down with him.
    Acosta needs to go.

    As for Epstein's victims:

    “Oh my God,” Michelle Licata, one of Epstein’s accusers, told the Miami Herald upon hearing about the new indictment. “Finally, finally, finally! Justice!”

    I sure hope so this time.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    Yep. Acosta gave Epstein a slap on the wrist for molesting children. Turns out, Trump was a good friend of Epstein. Trump explained:

    "I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. 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."

    https://www.businessinsider.com/jeff...er-side-2019-7

    When Trump became president, Acosta was appointed Sec. of Labor.

    Now, it appears, things are starting to unravel. If things work out well, a lot of Epstein pals might end up in jail. And not just republicans. One of Epstein's buddies was Bill Clinton. I'm not saying Clinton was involved in any of that, any more than I'm saying that one of Epstein's victims was telling the truth about Trump molesting her. Far as I know, neither of them are guilty.

    If either one is, I hope they spend the rest of their lives in jail.

    Hey. How about instead of politicising this issue, we advocate justice.

    Right.

    And those who use cases like this to further their hatred of Trump are part of the problem.

    What does Trump have to do with the rapist? Apparently, the rapist knows Trump but he knows many, many other powerful and wealthy people including Bill Clinton. Powerful wealthy men have been doing this for generations. Hollywood is infamous for this type of degeneracy and evil going back to Charlie Chaplin. Hollywood has always been a cesspool of evil (pedophilia, rape, homosexuality, drug abuse, adultery, etc.)

    The attorney for Epstein's victims has stated in legal documents that Donald Trump banned Epstein from at least one of his clubs for his sexual assault on a 16 year old girl. The mockingbird media will never publish this info though. They want the narrative to be that Trump was a part of Epstein's sick behavior.

    Dan Bongino put this out in what I believe was his show from yesterday. I just happened to find a link to his show on hooktube and clicked on it and that was one of his leading stories.

    The point of this thread is to examine how wealthy and powerful men can get away with sexual abuse.

    Did you even read the article?

    I have to ask.... All this row about Trump and his supposed close connection to Epstein calls to mind a very powerful Democrat operative who is sick beyond belief. How about it, Anna, are you going to defend Tony Podesta or hold him accountable?
