'At first glance the Epstein saga looks like another example of how justice tilts toward the powerful at the expense of the vulnerable. But, this case offers an even more warped picture of justice. He retained a cadre of high-price, high-profile lawyers who went after prosecutors with everything they had! In addition to short-circuiting federal charges, the agreement killed an F.B.I. investigation & granted immunity to “co-conspirators.” As detailed in a blockbuster series Acosta and his office worked  closely with Epstein’s legal team, and labored to keep the agreement secret until it was finalized. including from his victims. This, a federal judge ruled in February, violated the rights of those victims, as he avoided a life sentence. Instead, he served 13 months in a private wing of the Palm Beach  jail which allowed him to spend 12 hours a day,6 days a week in his private office.'

As you know, I write about the destruction of The Rule of Law and how 'rogue lawyers' undo the law for the power-elite.Lawyers who undermine the law for rich clients are rogues, who do not deserve to hold any office, let alone a cabinet position that oversees rules & regulations of our labor laws.

"Already, distressing new details are surfacing in the case," that "betrays a system in which the rich and well-connected can bully public officials into quiescence or into pursuing a deal so favorable to the accused that it runs afoul of the law; but whatever new details emerge, whatever new participants may be implicated, whatever public officials are found to have failed in protecting Mr. Epstein's victims, the time for secrecy and excuses and sweetheart deals is over. Mr. Epstein's victims have waited long enough for answers, and they deserve justice' under the rule of law."

The Continuity of Government is the #1 reason why endless errorism persists. It would be great if DONALD TRUMP hosted a live reality litigation program for commercial sponsors to sell objects made in America by cheap prison labor.
