Prosecutor in 2009 Epstein Case Said Donald Trump Was the ONLY ONE Who Helped Him
Prosecuting attorney Bradley Edwards was interviewed in December 2018 in Palm Beach, Florida shortly after settling a court case he had with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
The Palm Beach Daily News reported at that time –
The #MeToo movement may have finally caught up with billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The 65-year-old politically-connected money manager on Tuesday admitted he sued Bradley Edwards to punish the attorney for successfully representing young women who claim Epstein sexually assaulted them at his Palm Beach mansion more than a decade ago.
Epstein’s admission, his apology and his payment of an undisclosed amount of money to Edwards brought an abrupt end to what promised to be a salacious trial minutes before it was to begin in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.
After the settlement was announced, attorney Edwards was interviewed outside the courthouse. He shared much about the case and then answered the interviewer’s question about whether Donald Trump was somehow related to the case since Epstein was a reportedly a friend of Trump.
Question from reporter: Our current President has had relationships with Epstein in the past and there are those, Katy Johnson and maybe other victims who’ve accused Trump of being involved in things like this.
In my experience, Trump supporters will not listen to anything along those lines. Obviously we’re not in the court of law here right now, but are those claims, although that case was dropped, it was dropped before it went to court. In your opinion as a lawyer, in your experience is there anything you can say as to the validity of those claims and whether there will be anything more about that?
Edwards: Nothing at all. The only thing that I can say about President Trump is that he is the only person who, in 2009 when I served a lot of subpoenas on a lot of people, or at least gave notice to some pretty connected people, that I want to talk to them, is the only person who picked up the phone and said, let’s just talk. I’ll give you as much time as you want. I’ll tell you what you need to know, and was very helpful, in the information that he gave, and gave no indication whatsoever that he was involved in anything untoward whatsoever, but had good information. That checked out and that helped us and we didn’t have to take a deposition of him in 2009.
Reporter: Do you have any information on James Patterson’s claims that Trump had Epstein kicked out of Mar-a-logo?
Edwards: I definitely have heard that.

“What the president has done is politically brilliant.”
One House Democrat told Tapper the showdown between the White House and “the Squad” served Trump’s interests. “The president won this one,” the unnamed Democrat said. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”
Donald J. Trump
New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that “Trump” numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50%. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020
I am grateful for the (suicide) Squad as well. This maneuver by the President is brilliant. There is even hope that some people will actually check out the ‘policies’ of the Democrat Party, and in so doing realize the folly of supporting the insanity of globalism, which equates to totalitarianism.July 23, 2019 at 8:47 am #1202991498

Piers Morgan mocks ‘liberal snowflakes screaming with horror’ at Boris Johnson’s election
The Good Morning Britain host took to Twitter to share his delight at complaints about Mr. Johnson scooping 66 percent of backing from Tory members in the leadership race. He was today crowned leader of the Conservatives and will be Britain’s next Prime Minister today after a meeting with the Queen. Mr Morgan said: “The more the usual insufferably self-righteous, PC-crazed, virtue-signalling liberal snowflake suspects scream with horror about Boris, the more I’m warming to the idea of him as Prime Minister. “Like Trump, he has a commendable talent for sending them all completely nuts.
”Earlier, the new Prime Minister said he would immediately look to press ahead with a series of domestic policies addressing a number of issues Theresa May failed to make much progress on.
They could include a new insurance system for social care, increased funding for schools and tax cuts for high earners.

The Mueller Fiasco
Democrats are reeling after a horrendous day for their party on Capitol Hill with former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony unraveling their case against President Donald Trump, all while Republicans seek to capitalize on the serious missteps by a group of committee leaders and Democrat leadership in the House.
During the Fox News Channel’s coverage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress on Wednesday, Fox News Contributor and former Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated that Mueller “clearly” didn’t write the Mueller report.
Gowdy said Democrats are “not closer to anything other than wishing this had never happened. Bad facts make for bad witnesses. Bad witnesses make for bad hearings, and this one was an abject, miserable failure. The person who learned the most about the Mueller report today was Bob Mueller. I say that sadly. He was not engaged. He didn’t interview the witnesses. He clearly didn’t write the report.”
A defining moment of today’s televised hearings came when former Special Counsel Robert Mueller claimed that he was “not familiar” with the controversial Fusion GPS firm. Sure, Bob, you are not familiar with it.August 4, 2019 at 3:16 pm #1203010319

The Left (Democrats, Progressives) Are the Ones Who Have Been Inciting Violence
The language of physical aggression is bellowed loud and clear from the political, cultural, journalistic, and academic classes of the Left. These aren’t vague, ambiguous slips of the tongue that can be explained away by context or poor phrasing. There is no dog whistling here. These are direct calls to violence.
These threats are voiced by people who won’t throw the Molotov cocktails themselves but expect the friskier elements of their base to take the hints and do so. And they indeed do so, with relish and increasing brazenness. The growing violence on our campuses and in our streets is almost exclusively leftist and is a direct result of the green light being given to them by their leaders.
These agitations are directed not against foreign dictatorships, but against American citizens with whom the agitators simply disagree. We cannot yolerate an ideology that is currently integrating the concept that conservatives publicly expressing their views, or even of conservatives being allowed to go about their lives in peace, are of themselves acts of violence.
Aggressive language seems ominously natural when leftists speak about pretty much anyone who disagrees with them. Calls to violence have become commonplace from the Left, and justifies and reinforces all manner of vile behavior from brainwashed snowflakes and antifa hooligans.August 10, 2019 at 10:02 am #1203018598

Psychologist: Google generated at least 2.6 million votes for Hillary
Dr. Robert Epstein is a psychologist, professor, and author. He’s the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today.
Dr. Epstein is a liberal Democrat. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee (see below), he described himself as a “vocal public supporter” of Hillary Clinton. He said that to characterize him as not a Republican and not a conservative is “an understatement.”
Epstein testified that in the 2016 election, Google generated a minimum of 2.6 million votes for Clinton through deceptive manipulation of search results. He warned that if, in 2020, companies like Google and Facebook all support the same presidential candidate (as surely they will) they could affect up to 15 million votes, e.g. by “go vote” reminders sent only to those believed to be Democrats.
It is all media propoganda, isn’t it? What a joke! This is the only way the Democrats could win 2020. As your moron-in-chief says “we choose truth over facts.”
