Chuck Schumer Ties Trump and Secretary Acosta To Epstein

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) gave a speech on the floor of the Senate today calling for President Donald Trump to fire Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta. Alex Acosta is guilty of signing off on the plea deal with alleged pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 2008. Schumer used the floor speech to deflect any involvement Democrats may have with Epstein.

Now, I am not privy to who flew on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”, but former President Bill Clinton is denying knowing anything which Jodi wrote about. Read it here. Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is sending out warning tweets, as reported by Breitbart:

Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), said beloved figures across the political spectrum could find themselves in hot water in connection to the sex trafficking allegations involving billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein.
“This Epstein case is horrific and the young women deserve justice. It is quite likely that some of our faves are implicated but we must follow the facts and let the chips fall where they may – whether on Republicans or Democrats,” Pelosi wrote Sunday on Twitter following reports of Epstein’s Saturday arrest.

Chuck Schumer is a savvy politician and he is not going to let a good crisis go to waste. Tie President Trump and Secretary Acosta to Epstein and run the narrative. The New York Post reported:

“I am calling on Secretary Acosta to resign. It is now impossible for anyone to have confidence in Secretary Acosta’s ability to lead the Department of Labor,” he said on the Senate floor, a day after Epstein was hit by federal prosecutors in Manhattan with a slew of new charges involving underage girls that could land him behind bars for 45 years.

Schumer joins a growing chorus of lawmakers calling for the former federal prosecutor to resign.

“If he refuses to resign, President Trump should fire him. Instead of prosecuting a predator and serial sex trafficker of children, Acosta chose to let him off. We cannot have as one of the leading appointed officials in America someone who has done this,” the Senate minority leader continued.

Here is the video of Chuck Schumer on the Senate floor:

There is no doubt in my mind that the victims of Epstein’s “Lolita Express” deserve justice that they didn’t get in the original 2008 plea deal. Author James Patterson wrote a non-fiction book about Epstein titled “Filthy Rich” and the details are disgusting. Why, then, did the government, as represented by then District Attorney for the Southern District of Florida Acosta, make the deal?

Let’s get in the Way Back Machine and return to 2007, before the #MeToo movement when Bill Clinton was still popular (before he made a fool of himself for Hillary’s first Presidential run) and when Democrats for screaming for Wall Street types to go to prison for tanking the economy (very simplistic, but there you are). The Miami Herald reported last year:

Records show that Epstein was a key federal witness in the criminal prosecution of two prominent executives with Bear Stearns, the global investment brokerage that failed in 2008, who were accused of corporate securities fraud. Epstein was one of the largest investors in the hedge fund managed by the executives, who were later acquitted. It is not known what role, if any, the case played in Epstein’s plea negotiations.

Bear Stearns executives would have been a big get, but they were acquitted.

Still, remember what the times were like back then.

While we are time traveling, let’s remember 2002 when Trump said:

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” 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.”

That is creeptacular reading it now. Trump, apparently, banned Epstein from Mar-a-lago for assaulting a young female employee about fifteen years ago.

Here we are in 2019, heading into the 2020 elections, the Democrat candidates range from straight-up crazy to liars to craven cretins, what is Chuck Schumer going to do? Change the story. Focus the Trump Derangement Syndrome on anyone Republican.

It will be interesting to see what names of the rich and vile come out in this new round.

Let us hope that the victims of Jeffrey Epstein get justice.
