Recommended Posts

Maybe we will get lucky and McConnell will resign too.  What a great day that would be. It might make folks see that real democracy can be saved.

McConnell is #1 on my List, even ahead of tRump, but deVos is the highest listed cabinet secretary.

Careful...

 

Epstein gave millions to Democrats and somehow got a sweetheart deal all those years ago...

Instead of investigating how a millionaire became a politician maybe we should investigate how so many politicians became millionaires...

When will Schumer resign for his ties to Epstein?

 

https://nypost.com/2019/07/10/schumer-got-thousands-in-donations-from-jeffrey-epstein/

 

"Sen. Chuck Schumer — who called on Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to resign and said President Trump should “answer” for his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein — accepted thousands of dollars in donations from the alleged pedophile throughout the 1990s, The Post has learned.

 

Federal Election Commission records show that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997, first as a US congressman from New York and then when he was vying to be the state’s senator in 1998, an election he won."

Schumer also has an affection for Weiner. A convicted pervert.

I find it interesting that Acosta was removed so easily.

Perhaps there are more cases that they threatened to divulge

" The roster of attendees to a 2010 party for Prince Andrew at Epstein’s Upper East Side townhouse included an equally wide variety of names: reported guests like Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Charlie Rose, Woody Allen, and Chelsea Handler. "

" Either way, Epstein’s ability to move through the entertainment world proved shockingly durable until fairly recently. Even after his 2008 conviction, the Hollywood Reporter notes, Epstein attended major red-carpet events, including the Batman v Superman premiere and Oscar season parties. "

I already posted this. Learn how to use the forum search function. 

 

You did lie. Acosta did not allow Epstein to plea to a lesser offence. The Florida state prosecutor (who was a democrat) had no jail time or registration as a sex offender. Acosta stepped in and pushed to have a stiffer punishment. .So at least TRY to tell the truth. 

 

Acosta did nothing wrong. Democrats just smeared a good man and ruined his career for no other reason than politics.
