So Acosta just walks away?

I think he should be investigated on for the real reasons why this sweetheart deal with Epstein took place.

2. Albatross.......This will hound Acosta forever......

The Press is not going to let this die as long as Trump is in the WH.

The Epstein affair is going to heat up as more victims come forth and more high profile rich men get uncovered.

5. Getting him out of his position is Step 1.

More steps can follow....

Personally, I hope he never works again. He should be disbarred.

18. Yeah, but I expect Republicans to be anti-labor.

That's why so many workers are Reps.

7. I agree but

There may not be a quid pro quo let alone a paper trail.

Iíve been thinking about this type of rich and celebrity type of club a lot recently. It must take a lot to ingratiate yourself in those circles. You have to dress the right way, talk the right way and think the right way.

There must be a thrill to rub elbows with rich seemingly popular people, i guess.

The value is in the contacts and the networking. If you do something useful you are one of the good guys. If youíre a good guy youíll get rewarded eventually.

It could be that someone told Acosta he didnít want to upset the apple cart. That important people would appreciate if he could help.

Thatís the problem I see with going after corruption at this level.

There is still tremendous value in going after people like Acosta with a vengeance. There has to be a price. It is likely there is something prosecuteable will come out even if it lying under oath. Putting him under a microscope is at least some deterrence to others and maybe we get something more to prosecute others.

9. Yes.

I'd like to know Epstein's history of political donations and if he and Acosta were both registered Republicans when the deal went down. Is someone hiding Epstein's political affiliations?

Prosecutors have great power to make agreements to resolve cases.

They produce nothing.
