#1 The decade-old secret plea deal led to Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s resignation last week. Acosta came under renewed criticism following Epstein’s arrest over the 2008 non-prosecution agreement he oversaw as the U.S. attorney in Miami.
Could we have a bit more on the "secret plea deal" arrangement please. Can we begin by explaining exactly why the arrangement is... "secret."

#2 Jay Gatsby of the 21st century. When you look at where he came from and how, allegedly, he got where he was, there's no 'there' there. No closing houses or trade desks seem to have ever worked with him and the publicly known trades were catastrophic. He didn't simply spend money, he erupted cash in ways that would embarrass a Saudi royal.
How exactly did a college drop out teach at The Dalton school? How did the same person get to be a partner at Bear after 4 years? I'm sorry for the girls and all, but there are some very, very large anomalous questions out there.

Not unlike the "anomalous questions" many asked regarding the 44th president of the United States.

#5 This guy's business is blackmail.
His money came from his marks.
Show us the flight logs, FAA.
Show us whom Epstein has under his thumb.

#8 No, it's got to be New York-based perverts connected by big money to the Democratic Party.
Look at the donor list for people like Spitzer and the Clintons.
