#1 I always thought Mnuchin would be the one to go first.

#2 So Acosta must have other skeletons in his closet other than a flight and friendship with the Epstein. He has to understand the media will tear into him, his family, and friends. Sometimes, innocent or nor, it can be better to cut bait.

#3 Actually, the boys over at Powerline have been on Acosta's case for a long time. Not about the 'deal', but more on the line he would have been just as effective working for Obama than Trump. In other words, not much pushing the Trump agenda in Labor.

#4 I can't wait to see how Epstein wriggles out of the current 'deal'.

#5 Trump should have never hired him in the first place, but his exit under these circumstances is blood in the water to these sharks.

#6 What pall?
He's a lying, crooked, manipulative bastard.
At least Epstein was open about his perversions.

#7 Anyone who played a part in covering up Epstein's crimes doesn't need to be anywhere near positions of power. Glad to see him go.

#8 Sadly, there is oftentimes a bit more which seems to find it's way to the media following one of these "resignations."

#9 That's because they resign right before they can no longer hide the facts.

#10 He wasn't open to fully implementing Trump's agenda. Buh-bye

#11 @ #5 - Trump has an odd methodology of hiring people. This isn't "The Apprentice".
