The cold case against 66-year-old Jeffrey Epstein has been reopened and the Palm Beach multimillionaire, who previously pled guilty to two state-level prostitution solicitation charges in 2008, now faces charges of conspiracy and sex trafficking.
As Epstein was well-acquainted and hobnobbed with many big names in social and political circles, MSNBC host Nicole Wallace said this case could bring down President Trump, the Washington Examiner reports.
From the report:
Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, was instrumental in Epstein’s plea deal. He held a press conference earlier on Wednesday to defend his handling of the 2008 case against Epstein.
“But the world as it should be, we should be covering a president or a White House or a secretary of labor who once served as a prosecutor who’s saving all of their condemnation and fire for the monster in this story, and that’s Jeffrey Epstein,” MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace stated. “Is it stunning to you as a former federal prosecutor that no one is talking about Donald Trump being repulsed by Epstein’s alleged conduct?”
“You know, it is so hard I think to avoid the comparison between Epstein and Trump. Of course, one is under indictment. The other is not,” [MSNBC contributor Joyce] Vance answered. “But there are similar and credible allegations of this kind of conduct. And somehow, Epstein becomes a little bit of a marker for Trump here. Trump’s inability to fire Acosta in the face of the way he conducted this investigation is, I think, something that looked very personal to Trump. It’s impossible to separate the two.”
Wallace continued these sentiments during another segment with MSNBC commentator and Bulwark editor-in-chief Charlie Sykes.
“It links to something that you can’t just say boys will be boys. This isn’t locker room talk,” Sykes said via Raw Story. “This is hanging around with one of the most notorious pedophiles and also this intersection of the arrogance, the wealth, the indulgence in whatever you want to describe it as, that I think is going to be problematic for Donald Trump.”
“But this is an association that he really cannot afford. But there is that sort of bonding bro-ness between him and Jeffrey Epstein where I wonder whether people will know everything you just described and think it’s even sleazier than we thought,” he continued.
Pinning the discussion back on Trump, Wallace responded: “We will ultimately find out what Trump knew and when he knew it.”
