CNN’s Jake Tapper destroys the ‘shameless powerful people’ who covered for billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein

Cutting to the chase hours before he appeared on his regular CNN program, host Jake Tapper called out the many people who stepped in and helped convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein hide his crimes — then get a slap on the wrist when sentenced in a plea deal.

Taking to Twitter, Tapper first attacked President Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who was a U.S. Attorney involved in the case at the time, with being complicit.

“Judge’s order is actually pretty uncomplicated and clear: DOJ and then-US Attorney Acosta’s office demonstrated everything but fealty to the accused pedophile and misled his victims. The question is WHY,” Tapper wrote.

He then expanded his attack to the ‘powerful people’ who were friends of Epstein, who have much to answer for.

“One of the ugly facts laid bare in the Epstein plea deal is that many powerful people feel zero shame helping a billionaire who has molested girls as young as 14” he tweeted. “Zero consequences. Crimes against kids happen not only because of the criminals but their support networks.”

Alarming headlines have emerged in recent days as many states prepare to facilitate widespread mail balloting due to the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump openly admitted he was withholding federal aid from the postal service to prevent mail-in voting, and USPS has notified 46 states and D.C. that it will struggle to deliver some mail ballots on time," The Daily Beast reported Friday.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.
