    You mean John Podesta? If so and you're referring to pizzagate, I won't give that conspiracy any air time, sorry.

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

    I thought that when they realized that there was no basement under the pizza house, they gave up on that fantasy. Oh, well...

    On the other hand, the same scandal that tangles Trump in the Epstein pedophilia case, also might entangle Bill Clinton. Of course, Bill didn't reward the prosecutor who illegally gave Epstein a slap on the wrist, with a cabinet post, but now that a judge has tossed out the sweetheart deal, let's see who it takes down.

    Trump rewarded the prosecutor who illegally gave Epstein a sweetheart deal while hiding the process from Epstein's victims, with a cabinet position. Acosta broke several laws while coddling Trump's pedophile buddy.

    The recent arrest of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire financier, on federal child sex trafficking charges brings renewed attention to the fact that the man who oversaw his 2008 sweetheart plea deal — Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — still has a job.

    Acosta oversaw the deal for Epstein in 2008 when he was the top federal prosecutor in Miami. Now, many people are using the Twitter hashtag “AcostaResign” to demand he step down from his role as labor secretary.

    In February, a federal judge ruled that under Acosta, federal prosecutors broke the law when they concealed a plea agreement with Epstein from dozens of underage survivors of Epstein’s sexual abuse. In his opinion, Judge Kenneth A. Marra said that not only did prosecutors violate the Crime Victims Rights Act by not telling the victims about the deal, but prosecutors also led victims to believe the FBI’s case against him was ongoing. Thanks to those prosecutors, Epstein pleaded guilty in state court to two prostitution charges and served 13 months in Palm Beach County Jail.

    The deal also included language that gave immunity to “any potential co-conspirators’’ involved in his crimes, according to the Miami Herald. The Herald identified nearly 80 girls who said they were victims of Epstein and were anywhere from 13 to 16 years old when the abuse occurred.

    https://thinkprogress.org/jeffrey-ep...-c97222385077/

    Apparently, the rapist knows Trump but he knows many, many other powerful and wealthy people including Bill Clinton.
    I mentioned that. But Bill Clinton didn't pay off the prosecutor who broke the law getting Epstein out of trouble. Donald Trump did. If either of them had anything to do with Epstein's abuse of children, they should spend the rest of their lives in jail. Meantime, Trump does express some sympathy for one of the "victims":

    “I feel very badly actually for secretary Acosta because I’ve known him as being somebody that works so hard and has done such a good job,” said Trump, who previously called Epstein “a terrific guy”.
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...icking-charges

    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.)
    Neither Trump, nor Epstein, nor Acosta are Hollywood figures. And it's disgusting that anyone would say "It's O.K., everyone does it."

    No, Tony, John's brother. He's been a close advisor to many powerful Democrats and is a Democrat himself. Pizzagate? Nothing to do with pizzagate other than the pedophelia angle.

    edit: Tony and John had/have a political consulting business together and from all reports are very close.

    I don't know anything about Tony or why he's "sick beyond belief" or even how it relates to Epstein.

    Here is a link to photos taken by the magazine Washington Life inside Tony Podesta's home. http://washingtonlife.com/2015/06/05...ivate-viewing/

    If the pictures are too small for you to see well enough to see the detail in the artwork in Tony's house I'll give you another link that blows them up large enough to actually make out the detail.

    Notice also, those of you who read the article in the link who Tony Podesta's favorite artists are and then start doing a little research so you can see just what he really likes. Beware though, as you will find some very sick and satanic stuff. Also notice that Tony is close to Hillary and was a regular at the Obama White House.

    Let's see...

    "Hillary Clinton's campaign manager's brother's favorite artists are objectionable.

    So let's forget abut Trump's appointing as Labor Secretary, the guy who got Trump's pedophile pal off with a slap on the wrist for molesting children."

    You need to tighten that argument up a bit, fellah.

    Funny how faked "scandals" have a way of turning around and biting the perps, isn't it? Now instead of pizzagate and imaginary basements, we have a real case of Trump's pedophile buddy getting a slap on the wrist for molesting children, and the guy responsible gets rewarded by Trump with a cabinet position.

    Tony and John had/have a political consulting business together and from all reports are very close.
    So are these two guys:


    "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."

    But now, Trump says...

    “I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” the president said. “I mean people in Palm Beach knew him. He was a fixture in Palm Beach. I had a falling out with him a long time ago. I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years. I wasn’t a fan … I was not a fan of his. That I can tell you. I was not a fan of his.”
