The Epstein case is a disgusting affair. Those involved should pay a political and legal price.

In Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s press conference yesterday to discuss the plea deal he oversaw against Jeffrey Epstein, he said facts are important and facts are being overlooked.

If his facts are true, he is more a hero in this situation than a goat. The Palm Beach prosecutors, rich with Democrats, like the Chicago prosecutors in the Jussie Smollett case, are the responsible parties. If his facts are wrong, it should be easy to prove. Why is the media not looking into those facts?

Displaying obvious political motivations, a slew of Democratic lawmakers and presidential candidate have demanded Acosta quit as Labor chief on the heels of Epstein’s federal indictment in New York on Monday:

If he refuses to resign, President Trump should fire him,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said of Acosta on the Senate floor Tuesday.

After Acosta’s press conference, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, said, “Nothing said by Secretary Acosta at his press conference changes the verdict: he must go.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted Monday night about Acosta: “As US Attorney, he engaged in an unconscionable agreement w/Jeffrey Epstein kept secret from courageous, young victims preventing them from seeking justice. This was known by @POTUS when he appointed him to the cabinet.

Clearly facts don’t matter to Democrat politicians if they can get a pint of blood out of the Trump Administration or even better, out of Donald Trump!

But, is the media displaying the same political motivations by not looking into the facts? Is the media providing additional cover for Epstein, the Democrat insider, and his Democrat friends and possible participants?

We should expect our media to present the facts, shouldn’t we?
