The Herald’s series examined a number of people whose actions were questioned by lawyers representing Epstein’s victims. Besides Acosta, two other prosecutors in the Southern District of Florida were named in court documents connected to a civil lawsuit filed by two Epstein victims in 2008. One of them was Palm Beach federal magistrate Reinhart. In a 2011 sworn affidavit submitted in the civil case, Reinhart denied he did anything unethical or improper. He asserted, under the penalty of perjury, that he was not part of the team involved in Epstein’s investigation and therefore was not privy to any confidential information about the case. But two years later, Reinhart’s former supervisors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office filed a court paper contradicting him, saying that “while Bruce E. Reinhart was an assistant U.S. attorney, he learned confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter.’’
Constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz is calling it “misconduct.” According to him, in an appearance on Newsmax, such a raid should be the method of last resort, unless they can’t get the documents through subpoenas or any other lawful methods.“The raid is supposed to be a last resort,” he said. “But this administration has used the weaponization of the justice system against its political enemies. It has arrested people, denied them bail, put them in handcuffs – used all kinds of techniques that are not usually applied to American citizens. I just hope this raid has the justification. If it doesn’t have the justification, the materials seized in it will be suppressed.”
Conflict Of Interest Much? Garland Oversees Raid On President Who Denied Him SCOTUS Seat
Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised. After all, this is the same FBI that falsified evidence to the FISA Court in order to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump associate Carter Page and thereby enabled it to spy on Donald Trump and his entire team. So if you’re thinking the FBI deserves the benefit of the doubt when it comes to decency and credibility and integrity, well, think again.No, this ain’t your daddy’s FBI. Much as it pains us to say it, this is Joe Biden’s FBI, his Praetorian Guard. This is a nakedly corrupt FBI that has finally been exposed by more than a dozen whistleblowers, an FBI led by a gutless bureaucrat who last week skipped out on a serious grilling from Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans so he could board the FBI’s private Gulfstream 550 jet to vacation at his summer home in the Adirondacks.Ultimately, and most troubling of all, this is an FBI that treats those on the Right differently than it treats those on the Left.
you cannot abash or shame such people. they are past that possibility. such words lack meaning in their paradigms. they can “feel” that they are right and nothing can move that. it justifies being beastly to others which is, after all, a delicious frisson they have long sought. it’s a feature, not a bug and they are reveling in it and the more they act the monster, the more they feel the need to outshine their peers in viciousness and unreason to validate outrages already enjoyed. ...and this is how “justice” becomes tyranny and how the FBI becomes the FSB and if you think this is bad now, wait until we get 87,000 new IRS ideologues searching through the finances of all our enemies to deny them status and harry their every act or donation. wait until you see how many warrants we may obtain then and how complete and replete our enemies lists shall become.it’s ideological war and there is no depth to which it will not stoop. it’s not about fair, it’s about willing and those willing to capture and monopolize the levers of power may act with impunity so long as they retain their grasp. ...“we can get to him, we can get to you too. none of you are safe on his coattails. none of you are safe supporting him. he is enemy and we are strong. you’ll never pry us out of these spots. we own this town.”it’s a classic flex for a losing team. as a regime’s legitimacy erodes, first it will threaten, then it will attack.and they do not do it in a manner calculated to hide intent. they do it with triumphal fanfare flouted with rippling pride.you don’t go pick some plausible pretext and neutral looking system. you pick the worst, most captured and flagrant judge you can find and trump up some real nonsense. this was not an accident, it was an expression of power.just what is one trying to say by tagging in the former US attorney who went into private practice to get epstein and pals off of child trafficking changes with barely a wrist slap back in 2007 and were then later rewarded with a magistrate judgeship for his service?we are corrupt, we are everywhere, and we are untouchable. ...trump is like some sort of divide by zero error in the leftist amygdala and his mere mention seems to drive this group into frenzied need to tear everything and anything associated limb from limbic system. i don’t think i’ve ever seen anything like it. ...3 or 4 years ago, if you said “disband the FBI” people would have looked at you like a madman manifesto maven. but it’s becoming common parlance. words to this effect are being spoken in congress and issue after issue from russian hoaxes to hunter laptops to entrapment into kidnapping...a sitting US president with the lowest approval ratings in history allowing and enabling the departments of justice and enforcement to attack on flimsy pretext the likely frontrunner to unseat him in 2024 is just not a good look. ...the president’s son can sell influence to ukrainian oil companies and chinese private equity firms and kick “10% up to the big guy” and justice is not only deaf and blind, but outright aids and abets in covering it up. now imagine where a trump child would be if that had been their “laptop from hell.”
need to outshine their peers in viciousness and unreason to validate outrages already enjoyed. ...
