The crimes committed by Epstein are horrific, and I am pleased that NY prosecutors are moving forward with a case based on new evidence.— Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019
With the evidence available more than a decade ago, federal prosecutors insisted that Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender and put the world on notice that he was a sexual predator.— Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019
Now that new evidence and additional testimony is available, the NY prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice.— Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019
These comments require an incredible and monumental lack of self-awareness.— Mark Hertling (@MarkHertling) July 9, 2019
You allowed Epstein to avoid federal charges for sexually abusing underage girls. You need to resign. Now.— Andrew Weinstein (@Weinsteinlaw) July 9, 2019
It's time to resign, Mr. Secretary. Have you no shame? You hid the rigged sweetheart settlement from the victims. Everyone knows this. Resign now before your boss "resigns" you by Twitter.— Jennifer Taub (@jentaub) July 9, 2019
you didn’t allow his victims it have a voice the first time he was convicted.— Sarah Reese Jones (@PoliticusSarah) July 9, 2019
You let him pay for “horrific” crimes by going to his office 6 days a week, while serving his sentence.
Mostly I’d like to know: what did you get in exchange for your secret deal with a rich child rapist? (And a follow up, if I may: do you really think you can bluff your way out of this and remain in the cabinet?)— Helen Kennedy (@HelenKennedy) July 9, 2019
Is there a gif for gaslighting?— Amir Talai (@AmirTalai) July 9, 2019
Resign bitch— Erin *crosstalk* Ryan (@morninggloria) July 9, 2019
It was so nice of you to give him that sweetheart deal slap on the wrist. So he has the goods on you, too, huh?— GSeabhac ITMFA, FFS! (@GSeabhac) July 9, 2019
@RATIO_WATCHER we have the very rare everything-ratio here, in which every statement in a tweet thread is ratioed and then some— Brooke Binkowski (@brooklynmarie) July 9, 2019
Trump weighed in, naturally trying to deny his life long friendship with Epstein.
Wasn’t a fan? Hmm…
“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York Magazine that year for a story headlined “Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery.” “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”Washington Post – July 8/2019
Epstein’s voluminous personal address book — leaked by an Epstein employee in 2009 — contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and members of his staff, according to media reports

I almost wish I believed in Hell so I could imagine these people rotting in it.
But wait there’s more!
Neither Bill Clinton nor Donald Trump have been implicated in this #epsteinindictment but-— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) July 9, 2019
If Clinton was found to have abused girls w/Epstein, his base would reject him.
If Trump was found to have abused girls w/Epstein, his base would reject the findings.
Of course Bill Clinton denied it too.

Who would have thought sleazy people known for doing sleazy things would be implicated in doing sleeazy shit?
2 Presidents, a private jet nicknamed “The Lolitta Express”, and an Island full of teenage sex slaves. What could possibly go wrong?
I expect lot’s of Sgt. Schultz answers in the coming weeks as this thing blows wide open.
