Trump Praises Acosta But Says He’ll Look ‘Closely’ At Epstein Plea Deal | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC
Okay joining us now, Glenn kirschner and MSNBC legal analyst and former Federal prosecutor. We’Ve also got crislu. He served as deputy secretary of Labor during the Obama Administration is and is currently a senior fellow at the University of Virginia Miller Center Robert MSNBC political analysts and National political reporter for the Washington, Post and Jessica Roth here at the table is a former Federal prosecutor For the southern district of New York in is catching heat, not just from Democrats, but also from people inside the White House who killed a cop that hasn’t done enough to push the Trump agenda at the labor department and that the fsting Fallout could actually provide a Pretext to push Acosta to what are you, what are your sources inside the White House telling you not just about the growing pressure on Acosta but, more importantly, with a president stands on all of this, based on my conversations with Trump advisors, mr. Acosta secretary, with a Casta at times and how things are preceded on policy, the president is aware of this, but he also likes it cost to personally, in the sense that he sees him as a loyal, hard worker. Someone who doesn’t steal the spotlight from the president show this moment and I’m usually many respect for the best outcome under the circumstances, because of ensure that Epstein at least went to jail for some. Of time and then he registered as a sex offender. The problem is that it’s really hard to reconcile that position with the evidence has come to light subsequently, his reporting from Miami Herald and through other sources, including litigation and civil litigation in Florida and elsewhere, brought by the victim. It does seem that there was extensive evidence available as sufficient for his line prosecutors to draft that indictment. That was over 50 page, that included multiple serious Federal felonies. So, although there doesn’t appear to be new and US attorney in New York since as much it’s not clear that the evidence was insufficient to that at the time in Florida, and I think that, but I have to do more, explaining stration is rolling that back cuz. It right that’s exactly right: the Department of Labor is one of the lead federal agencies in fighting traffic around the world around the world, and here in the United States, labor and factors. Inspectors are often the first people on the scene who encounter victims of trafficking and, just in the past two weeks of this Labor Department under Alex Acosta, both put a moratorium on granting temp visas to victims of trafficking and is now added an additional bureaucratic step. In the process that might potentially even months these victims getting protection and inspecting workplace relying on undocumented immigrants who might be witnesses to get for them to get protection, it’s obviously places in the irony of all this is it Donald Trump is trying to say that fighting Human trafficking is one of his highest priority, and yet his Secretary of Labor seems to be taking steps that go in the opposite direction. Stop from Jeffrey Epstein, take a look at this picture and Palm Beach out with him a long time ago. If I wasn’t a fan, I was not be a long time ago. I thought I said, maybe 15 years I was not a fan of his that I can tell you. I was not a fan of his chances that a falling out sometime ago does that hold up Bob. The president knew Jeffrey Epstein going back decades in Palm Beach. As he said, there was some kind of business dealing that created a falling-out situation a decade ago. I spoken is Sam number of former Trump campaign adviser who said that, even when President Trump launched his campaign for president in 2015, he was asked about Epstein by some of his advisers, and he said all that relationship is falling. Apart. Take away the fact that they did have a relationship or friendship that was there in the early 90s, the mid-nineties, the late nineties, as they were both fixture fixtures and Palm Beach and Epstein. The very next thing that’s scheduled at the bail hearing before the judge has been assigned the case, judge Bourbon and that’s happening on July 15th. The government has already made clear they’re seeking detention pretrial. Obviously his attorneys are going to fight that the government already put in an expensive memory explaining his reasons for seeking attention, including his extensive International contacts, is fairly minimal. Us contacts is extraordinary wealth and means actually deflate, should he so choose, and they also interesting. Lee talked about evidence of attempt Justice in the past and it concerned that he might do so try to intimidate Witnesses we’re heater to remain outside out of custody. So the next big thing will be that bail hearing on July 15th, because one of the factors that the court will consider is also the strength of the government. Ever we’re going to hear more from the government about that evidence, including the corroborating evidence of the victim’s testimony. I’M sure we’ll hear more about those would appear to be hundreds of photographs of nude or partially nude women, some perhaps underage female – that were found during the search warrant, his residence contemporaneous with his arrest, so that bail hearing is going to be very interesting.. So the only available about the evidence the videos were putting out you – can click subscribe just below me or click over on this list, as he lots of other great videos.
