As Epstein bail fight looms, feds say evidence growing daily
[AP] NEW YORK (AP) ‐ Federal prosecutors, preparing for a bail fight Monday, say evidence against financier Jeffrey Epstein is growing "stronger by the day" after several more women contacted them in recent days to say he abused them when they were underage.

Prosecutors say Epstein, 66, is a flight risk and danger to the community and should remain incarcerated until he is tried on charges that he recruited and abused dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s.

His lawyers counter that their client has not committed crimes since pleading guilty to soliciting a minor for prostitution charges in Florida in 2008 and that the federal government is reneging on a 12-year-old deal not to prosecute him. They say he should be allowed to await trial under house arrest in his $77 million Manhattan mansion, with electronic monitoring.

In a written submission Friday to U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman, prosecutors revealed new information about their investigation and why they perceive Epstein as dangerous.

#1 The decade-old secret plea deal led to Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s resignation last week. Acosta came under renewed criticism following Epstein’s arrest over the 2008 non-prosecution agreement he oversaw as the U.S. attorney in Miami.

Could we have a bit more on the "secret plea deal" arrangement please. Can we begin by explaining exactly why the arrangement is... "secret."

#2 Jay Gatsby of the 21st century. When you look at where he came from and how, allegedly, he got where he was, there's no 'there' there. No closing houses or trade desks seem to have ever worked with him and the publicly known trades were catastrophic. He didn't simply spend money, he erupted cash in ways that would embarrass a Saudi royal.

How exactly did a college drop out teach at The Dalton school? How did the same person get to be a partner at Bear after 4 years? I'm sorry for the girls and all, but there are some very, very large anomalous questions out there.

#3 Ref #2: I'm sorry for the girls and all, but there are some very, very large anomalous questions out there.

Not unlike the "anomalous questions" many asked regarding the 44th president of the United States.

#5 This guy's business is blackmail.
His money came from his marks.
Show us the flight logs, FAA.
Show us whom Epstein has under his thumb.

#8 No, it's got to be New York-based perverts connected by big money to the Democratic Party.
Look at the donor list for people like Spitzer and the Clintons.
