Unless this guy Acosta is crooked as hell, that deal Epstein received makes no fucking sense.
It was sealed... he got to go on work release to his office every day.
The whole thing is so ridiculous.
What about the theory that Epstein was a federal asset (either an informant or worked directly for Intelligence to entrap folks and get them on video)?
It would be the ultimate scam to compromise and control powerful men... and get them to do what you want.
Yes I know I am going into the conspiracy theory realm... but humor me.
This would help explain the insane deal Epstein received.
Maybe it has zero to do with Epstein and everything to do with epsteins Attorneys. In most cases the prosecution and defence know each other well and do favours for each other
Or maybe acosta didn’t have the smoking gun at the time to prosecute? And this was the best deal he could get.
None of us are lawyers... and proof beyond a reasonable doubt is a tough burden on the prosecution
there are many reasons why a prosecutor might make this deal... and not all of them are wrong or nefarious or conspiracy theories.
Sure... although someone in the Sheriffs department was interviewed who said that the FBI had more than enough evidence to put Epstein away for a very long time but were overruled by Acosta.
If you believe the articles on this, Acosta said that he was told to "back off" and that the decision was "way above his pay grade.".... that Epstein "belonged to intelligence and to leave it alone."....
But that doesn’t fit your narrative
fbi has evidence to put him away but is overruled by acosta .. who was told to back down by the FBI.
I’m not saying you’re wrong... just saying that narrative doesn’t add up
Mueller was head of thr FBI at the time. lol
I suspect he will be grilled about this next week by the Republicans. Im starting to think this may be calculated by Trump/Barr.
They can call him to speak to that case, during that case's proceedings. If the Republicans try and deflect from the reason Mueller is there, it will be pathetically obvious they just want to distract. Mueller will sit them down in response and make fools of them all.
You have obviously never watched one of these interviews live before. They can ask whatever they want to him under oath.
The questioning is almost ALWAYS partisan.
Yes the questions are always partisan. They can word/phrase the questions on the Russia probe/report all they want. It's what the "teams" do.
I'm talking about bringing up a completely, 100% irrelevant case, to deflect. If they do that, they will look foolish and desperate.
So you have never watched one..
Again they can ask whatever they want. Of course they will look foolish or desperate to a partisan person. But they dont have to ask him about Russia or the reason the democrats drug him in there.
Go watch Loretta Lynch get questioned about her Tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton. lol
Keep in mind congress doesnt conduct investigations, they can only do oversight. Anyhthing related to DOJ oversight is fair game, including a current case that Mueller was a part of at some point, if he was.
