A group of women who say they were sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein suffered a setback Monday in their decade-long legal fight over a plea deal that allowed the financier to avoid a lengthy prison term.

"In the end they are not receiving much, if any, of the relief they sought," U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra wrote.

"It has also resulted in the United States Department of Justice acknowledging its shortcomings in dealing with crime victims, and its promise to better train its prosecutors regarding the rights of victims under the CVRA in the future," Marra wrote in the 15-page ruling.

3. Stormy Daniels affair was consensual

Slimy of Trump because he paid her for sex while he was married, but it was not sexual assault or rape.

7. How about suing Alex Acosta, the DA who made the deal that denied the victims' rights?

These people need to be held accountable, since Epstein weaseled out of it.
