Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week

"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.

"KTAR in-depth. So President Trump has been catching some heat in the wake of last week's deadly mosque shootings in New Zealand. Joining us now on the KTAR. Newsmaker line is our DC insider ABC news political analyst, Alex Kosta, Janos, Alex. I'm gonna play a little clip here. Mick mulvaney. The acting chief of staff telling CBS's face the nation about the president of the religious minorities that are the worst oppressed to the Middle East or some of the ones that this administration has been going to great lengths to protect. So I hear what folks as Donald Trump said this during the campaign look at what we've done while we've been here. I don't think anybody could say that the president's anti Muslim. All right. So that led by the way to Arizona, congressman Ruben Gago tweeting. I can say it the president is a bigot. He is anti Muslim who else wants to say it. Well, there you go. We've we've had some pretty rugged. We've had quite the tweeting stuff all about Arizona's at Arizona and from Arizona over the last couple. Days. Yes. Indeed. Well, we know this president fights his wars on Twitter, you know, he only engage in these Twitter storms on weekdays and weekends. But other than that, he's pretty cold. But this is how he gets his message out to the American people. And at the end of the day. The president also understands something else it's not about any one individual issue or battle or controversy. Right now. There is a big exist war between a populist wave of Americans. That is trying to overthrow an old Washington establishment this hungry to come back to power. And so they'll there it's about getting Donald Trump out of office and getting them back in and these are just events and fights that the establishment guys pick to erode Trump's support Trump knows that. That's why he swings at every pitch. That's why he can't forgive the smallest slight because he knows if if he displays weakness and loses a battle. He may not be top dog tomorrow. So. Yeah. But Judy should he be fighting dead senators though, I mean, they're going after John McCain over the weekend. That's a that's a good question. Did he help himself? No. But Trump looks at this is his wait a minute. They're the people who are attacking me for insulting John McCain after he passed away, aren't they the very same people who try to destroy John McCain when he was alive running against Barack Obama when they called him a liar and a racist and a war monger and a hypocrite as bad a racist as George Wallace, some Democrats said so that tells Trump look it's not about that. It's about getting me out of here. And and I have to fight him to the death. So he hits back on he's attacked on collusion in the Russian dossier. He fights back. You know, it's interesting that the congressman I mentioned a couple of minutes ago. Ruben guy go saying the president is a big at he is anti Muslim his made no has made. No secret of the fact that he would he's interested in that Senate seat. That's currently held by Martha mcsally, of course, Marquette. Kelly. The retired astronaut announced last month that he is seeking that same US Senate seat should Ruben guy. Go take a take a page from Kingston cinema, and and try to play things a little bit more moderate and not be so anti Trump, or should he just stayed his mind? Well, you know, that's that's the tough question for Democrats. Not only in Arizona but running for president, and they're all gonna parade right through Arizona. Do they go hard anti Trump and progressive to capture that youthful wave of voters that is reorganizing and transforming because I'm a critic party or do they go the mainstream democratic centrist, you know, working class route like Joe Biden? And I think what we're seeing in Arizona is that the energy it seems to be with those younger more radical more anti Trump democratic voter. So yes, I think that's probably the smart way to go for a democrat, the more you bash Trump, the more of a democrat. You are and you mentioned his name. So real briefly, do you do you think Joe is going to run? I think he is. And I like Joe Biden. And I wish you wouldn't. Because I think the world is past him by his party is left him behind. There's a new generation of social media candidates. That can snap their fingers and raise six million dollars in twenty four hours. Joe Biden, even Bernie Sanders can do it Joe Biden can't he doesn't have that passion and vision, and and I don't know how he can reinvent himself as the new Joe Biden. All right. Thanks a lot. That's RDC..

"So far, Alex Kosta is still serving as the US secretary of labor. White House asked repeatedly about this matter. It said finally today they are quote looking into it. But that is far as anybody knows the president has not lost confidence in his labor secretary. When Alex Kosta was picked to be in the president's cabinet. He was asked about his handling of the Jeffrey Epstein case at his confirmation hearings at the time. Mr Costa defended the deal, he gave to Jeffrey Epstein the non-prosecution deal. He said the outcome of the Epstein case was quote a point of pride. But all this time it took more than a decade for their case to get through the federal courts. But all this time that the victims have been seeking this Justice, Alex Akasa has never really explained why he gave Jeffrey Epstein that deal. And he's definitely never explained. Why he kept the whole thing? A secret. The reporter who broke the story wide open. And who changed the course of this case for us for the country. Will join us next. Stay with us. Reporter Julie K Brown from the Miami Herald just wanna poke award for her Lindmark reporting on the Jeffrey Epstein case and specifically the efforts by his multiple child sex abuse victims to try to get Justice in his case. And to find out how and why federal prosecutors gave Jeffrey Epstein a secret non-prosecution agreement without ever notifying victims. Now, a judge has sided with those victims for the first time that they have for the first time in more than the decade that they have been pursuing this matter. Julie brown. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Congratulations on your coverage of the story thus far. Thank you wanted to ask you what you think will be the impact of this judge's ruling yesterday. I was struck by the fact that he's told the two sides in this case to go talk amongst themselves to try to work it out over the course of two weeks to suggest a potential remedy here. What do you think is the range of possibilities? Well, I know that the the victims the the young women who were girls at the time this happened. I know that what they ultimately would like, and that would be for them to invalidate this agreement and eventually bring him get him to federal prison on they feel that he should have been held accountable for this crime, which was which involved really even though prosecutors only listed about three dozen girls over the course of the past eleven years as these cases have been litigated. We know that there are probably over one hundred girls. So this the vast -ness of this crime, they believe dictates that he should he should serve some time in federal federal prison. The judge made a point in his ruling yesterday of mentioning that Epstein's crimes took place not just in Florida, but interstate and internationally, do you think that opens the door for other prosecutor? And other jurisdictions to to bring charges against Epstein prosecutors who might not have considered this relevant to them to their own cases before. Well, certainly the victims lawyers believe that to be the case.

Judge: Top Trump Official Went Easy on Billionaire Sex Trafficker

"A situation at south Florida judge ruled yesterday the federal prosecutors, including Trump's labor secretary Alexander Kosta violated the law by striking a sweetheart plea deal with wealthy financier. Jeffrey Epstein in which Epstein averted federal prosecution for his participation in international sex operation, a Kosta who at the time was the US attorney for the southern district of Florida opted, not to prosecute Epstein on federal sex traffic laws. And instead struck a deal that ultimately granted him immunity. More than thirty of Epstein's victims were not notified of the arrangement. The judge wrote particularly problematic was the government's decision to conceal the existence of the agreement and mislead the victims to believe the federal prosecution was still a possibility this guy. Jeffrey Epstein is a bad, dude. He has been connected to both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. And and now you have the labor secretary Alexander Kosta who's right in the middle of this new mess Felix. I know you went through all of this on this particular case what stood out to you yet. This was a thirty three page order the judge issued as you said yesterday and into steals what the actual construction of the plea agreement between Epstein and federal prosecutors that didn't really turn into a plea agreement because they ultimately let him plead guilty in state court in south Florida, not in federal court. So the whole structure of the agreement really is a non prosecution agreement involving these thirty four identified victims that the FBI was looking into you over the course of nineteen ninety nine to two thousand seven is time period. That Epstein is committed to all these crimes not only interstate between states. He was travelling back and forth engaged in human trafficking and other sex acts. But also they're looking at international charters private plane, and there would be these these sex parties. And so it was very detail because all these litters were going back and forth between a line prosecutor, a low level US attorney assigned to this case and Epsteins defense attorney, and it's defense team eventually involving even Kenneth Starr who was the special prosecutor during the Clinton investigation other big name into the mic. So when you look at a day detail, the correspondence back and forth between the prosecutors and the defense, and it was very clear that we're trying to minimize not only the media coverage of Epstein engage in all these sex acts and all these crimes that they had documentation of. And we're developing a federal case against against him. And they were trying to there's exchanges going back. Hey, why don't you start looking at some misdemeanor charges and will lead them to a couple of obstruction charge related to one of his co conspirators eventually what it ended up happening is that all the federal charges were never prosecuted they were kicked over to stay court to handle where he pled to a felony solicitation for prostitution case was he served. A very small period of jail time. But what the judge struck at the heart of is that the victims have rights in these federal cases under the crime victims Rights Act that they'd be notified of any plea agreements any court appearances any chance that they would have to speak their mind or speak with investigators, and it didn't also travel until after this non-prosecution agreement was signed by Epstein. And then when they started looking at okay as part of the agreement, you agree that you have to pay whatever civil damages these victims are coming after which was part of the agreement but day, specifically said we do not want the victims to know about the non-prosecution agreement because it will unravel anything they were focused on f scenes confidentiality all throughout the process. What gets even worse for Alex Kosta, he's directly involved in these negotiations. Whether or not victim letters were sent out what in these letters that they're entitled to know about the process. And then he even said in one statement that he agrees to tell them only about the federal resolution the right that they have. That there are appointed attorney to go after him civilly, and he will defer to the state court on whether or not day could show up for the sentencing or the plea agreement. They totally downplayed the rights of the victims in this case. And that's what she took issue with. And when asked about the Epstein case at his confirmation hearing Kosta said that his handling of the case was a point of pride. What you have here. Let's take the thirty thousand foot view, you have a billionaire who is connected to some of the most powerful people in the country who got away with molesting girls as young as fourteen and being involved in a sex trafficking operation, right? That that's what you have here. You have basically that that worst case scenario, somebody super-rich super powerful getting away with some of the worst possible crimes that you could imagine. Because of who they are the influence. They have in the power. That they have in. The problem is is that it according to the judge I should say, it's a he gone Kenneth Mara. Who is the judge on this case, but it's detailed in terms of they have the documentary evidence in the non prosecution agreement was filed under seal in federal court and was an attorney for one of the Jane Doe was representing. He started with one. Jane, Dow, then in being three of them, and he started to unravel. Hey, we wanna see the plea agreement. We want to see what you negotiated with. Mr. Epstein, not what was in stake. Not which was in state court. They also document where Jane Doe number one came forward, and she was meeting with a US attorney and also FBI agent or two FBI agents, actually one point, and basically they were distributing them along single these things take time, it's a federal case and gave them every indication, right? They were going to pursue federal charges and never did. It was it was a big deal. Right. And it was also a according to the documents. It was already done deal. It was already signed before they even got into the letters that were going out. And the fact that a cost is directly involved in those communications that's becoming

Federal prosecutors broke law in Jeffrey Epstein case, judge rules

"First a federal judge ruled yesterday that prosecutors led by labor secretary Alexander Kosta into thousand eight when he was US attorney in Florida broke the law by concealing plea agreement as I'm Navarre's reports the sex crimes case involved more than thirty underage victims. The plea deal a decade ago for billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, reduced charges a federal sex crimes with a potential life sentence in prison to lesser state charges of soliciting a minor and just thirteen months in county jail. Epstein was accused of building a vast network of underage girls. Some as young as thirteen girls he sexually abused in his Florida mansion and allowed other adult men to abuse as well in twenty eleven a Coster wrote. He wasn't aware of the full extent of Epstein's abuse back when he struck the plea deal. Many of the details only came to light late last year. When the Miami Herald published an extensive investigation. Including interviews with dozens of victims. The work was led by reporter, Julie K Brown who is ward at the George Polk award earlier this week and Julie K Brown joins me now. Julie welcome to the news hour. It's an extraordinary piece of reporting, it boggles the mind, though, why it took so long to come to light. So just start there. Tell us how did you first learn about this story? Why did you start to dig at it the way you did? Well, the pieces of this story that the outline of this story had been known for many many years a lot of journalists had written about this deal sort of scratching their heads about how could something like this happen. And when Alexander Kosta, the Miami US attorney in Miami was nominated by President Trump last year is labor secretary or in two thousand seventeen rather as labor secretary. I sort of wanted to hear what he was going to say when he would be asked about this case, and I was kind of. Astonished that he wasn't asked much about it at all in the answers that he did get give really weren't responsive to the questions he was asked. And so I thought you know, it's been a long time this was before the metoo movement. But I kept thinking I wonder what these victims these girls at the time they were thirteen fourteen fifteen now in their late twenties and thirties are thinking about the fact that he has advanced so far in his career after in essence in their minds, betraying them. So I said about trying to find out who these victims were and eventually convinced just a handful of them, quite frankly to to go public, but I spoke to many more than a handful of them and the details that they share in those interviews with you are just so incredible jaw-dropping and the consistencies across so many of their stories I want to share actually just a quick piece of one interview from one of the women you interviewed her name is Virginia Roberts, and here's what. She told you used to happen at Epstein's house ended with sexual abuse and intercourse. And then a Pat on the back you've done a really good job. Like, you know, thank you very much. And here's two hundred dollars. You know, before you know, it on being lint out to politicians into academics. And people that you royalty. And and people that you just you would never think like how did you get into that position of power in the first place, if you're this disgusting evil decrepit person on the inside Julie women, like Virginia lived for over a decade knowing that the US attorney, Alex Kosta in this case declined to prosecute the man who abused them when you first approached them were they willing to talk to you. Now, I will hit now that was probably the hardest part trying to convince them to trust me because a lot as I mentioned. There has been a lot written about the case. They have never really spoken publicly because quite frankly, they felt that their story really had never been told. So part of what I did was I I did some homework on it. I interviewed some sexual assault survivors and some counselors to try to prepare me not to interview them in such a way as to get to the root of their trauma without re traumatizing them, which was, you know, a delicate balance so help us understand that because obviously in your series of reports, you lay out the physical evidence the witness testimonies, everything there was to build a case against Epstein. How do we understand this decision? Not to prosecute. What do we know about what happened behind the scenes before a cost of made that decision we actually know a lot because these girls after the? Deal was signed. They file a federal lawsuit against the government alleging and claiming that they violated the crime victims Rights Act because they they didn't inform these girls of this plea bargaining, and they kept it secret. And as part of this lawsuit, the government had to turn over a lot of emails and letters and those emails and letters showed a pretty collegial relationship between the prosecutors and Epsteins lawyers, and we know now the federal judge yesterday said that that that plea deal the way that it was signed without notifying victims that was illegal Sarah Sanders over at the White House was asked about that today. Because as we've noted mister Acosta is now the labor secretary under President Trump. She said it's something they're looking into. But I guess from the victim's perspective, those women you have spoken with what is it that they want to see happen? Now, what is Justice and accountability? Look like all these years later. Well, you know, they really want to see him go to prison. They wanna see him. Punished. For the crimes that he committed. We know because of evidence that has come to light over the past several years that he wasn't just doing this in Palm Beach. He's accused of trafficking girls in New York and other places around the world and. The question is out. There is why haven't federal authorities reopened this case, or at least a opened a new case in another jurisdiction. And I think that these women feel that prosecutors in the Justice department has just worked to help cover up this case rather than expose an Epstein did. And and to find some kind of Justice for for these girls a lot of questions still remain, Julie Kate Brown. It's an incredible piece of reporting you've done for the Miami Herald. Thank you so much for being with us today.

"So the president's glad that he finally got the invite from Nancy Pelosi to come give the state of the union speech tonight, but he did say this on Sunday before the Super Bowl. But I think she's very bad for our country. She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it's very bad politics. Because basically she wants open borders doesn't sound like he's going to strike much of a bipartisan tone tonight. Although that's what we've been told. He's gonna do joining us, sir. Arizona's morning news DC insider, ABC news political analyst, Alex Kosta Janos, the border is really going to be a big part of what he talks about tonight. I is this going to be the state of the union speech, but also the state of the shutdown in the border speech. Alex. There's going to be a little bit of that. But most of the speech is going to go in a different direction. He's going to be presidential Trump tonight, not impulsively tweeting and picking fights Donald Trump. And there's a recent for that. This is the beginning of his twenty twenty campaign. He wants to say, America's going great. We've got a lot of jobs wages are going up. Crime is down teenage pregnancies are down, you know, we've got good. Judges are economies off like a rocket. Don't go back. Choose greatness. Choose to go forward. Don't go backwards with old Washington. Go forward with me. That's going to be the big story today. But he does in some ways half, the kinda offer some kind of an olive branch to the Democrats though to does he I mean, he has to work with a democratically controlled house now. And I think you're going to see that in places like infrastructure, let's work together and fix our roads and bridges. He's going to say pharmaceutical prices are too high. We agree on that. Let's work together on that. You know, we're going in the right direction less. Choose great mystery get going on these things, but the divisive things like the wall. Yes, he's gonna touch on them. But I bet you'll also turn around tonight. Look over his left shoulder and say Nancy Pelosi, you're a tough adversary. But I respect you, and we could work together to get things done for the American people. One of the things though, he is going to talk about is is immigration, and he hasn't gotten any money for the wall. He hasn't gotten any new laws to crack down on illegal immigration. How does he sell that to the American public without? Completely ticking off the Democrats. Well, that's going to be a tough one. I think he can make the point tonight that okay, don't give me my wall. Finish building yours. You voted to fix this thing in two thousand six for seven hundred miles of wall, finish your wall. He's going to say, look, you promised Republicans and Democrats you promised to fix this in nineteen eighty six and you have done it. I'm not letting you off the hook. I'm not declaring a national emergency is your job to to fix our our border. I think you'll hear some of that tonight to and of course, you have to get some drama that goes along with the state of the union address. And some of that is supposed to be provided by the Democrats when they show up with various guests that oppose the president or have some radical things at times to say that will not overshadow him tonight. We'll at Alex. It's hard to overshadow Donald Trump. Donald Trump is his own biggest guest. He's his own biggest story, and he's actually been excited about this speech. He's been practicing with the teleprompter. He's gonna do. So again. Today. So he's been practicing is this. This is a stage that Donald Trump likes where he gets to be the president in front of the congress and gets the spotlight so watch for him to be more, presidential and less political tonight. Thank you very much. That's our DC insider ABC news political analyst, Alex Kostya. Of course will carry the state of the union.

That is a recipe for tyranny, you are then living under an authoritarian government land, open your eyes. This is what the hardcore left believes, they are not Democrats. Okay. They believe in a socialist society controlled by people who think they can make a utopia where everybody has enough money to do what they want. And the only way you can do that is to get rid of your basic freedoms. This woman is not a democrat. She has a totalitarian. Well that philosophy is not gonna win elections. You hear those those idiot kids there at the Colbert show cheering her on? She said her seventy percent tax plan is not I repeat not a new idea. This is not a new idea.

Nobody was nobody was paying that wouldn't apply to many people you make over ten million. This isn't gonna fly apply to a lot of people. Will. The whole point of that though is even if you make over ten million, and they're gonna take it. Then you like why should I bother to make any more? Why should I bother to create a new business if they're just gonna take my money? Seventy percent is like that. I mean, that's robbery. That's that's not under to make us for the money.

"From the very first day of this partial government, shutdown President Trump has been engaging in good faith negotiations and discussions now. It's time for leadership for speaker Pelosi to come back to the table. That's vice President Mike Pence talking about what the president will be talking about and his address to the nation tonight. Let's talk as Jimmy mentioned with our DC ABC news political analyst, Alex Kosta Janos, Alex is the first time he's done this. You know, an Oval Office address to the nation, which we've seen so many presidents do in the past. What do you what do you expect to hear from him tonight? And will it change anything? I think it is first office address. This president is going to do something he hasn't done which is he's going to try to use the power of and the stature of the Oval Office and the bully pulpit to reach across the fifty yard line reach beyond his base and and make not only a national security case for border wall. He's gonna make. Humanitarian case he's going to say real people are getting hurt here on this side when illegal aliens kill a policeman as they did the day after Christmas in California. But also, the the mothers who are coming here to attracted by our open borders. A third of the women who are attracted to this perilous journey raped Fenton hill is coming over our border and increased seventy three percent. We have to stop it. We're going to see Donald Trump be very Reagan like tonight, and that's different. Yeah. If he sticks to the script, which you know, you're kind of expected to do when you're speaking from the Oval Office. So right, Alex. You know, he's he's done that when he's giving his state of the union addresses, and and big speeches. So he can do it. And I think it's a win for him tonight because he's going to be talking about a crisis. And the Democrats are going to be saying walls won't help. That's a tough argument because on your home. Do you have walls and a security system or just a security system walls help keep us our home safe, and he's going to make that case about our American Home tonight. There's any chance that Donald Trump will try to negotiate a little bit. And actually that could make the Democrats look, really bad. If he says, all right, listen, I just I want four billion for the wall. Now, what do you say Democrats? And if they don't if they come back with no, we don't want to give you anything it really could make them look bad, but any chance Donald Trump's gonna do something like that. He's he's probably not going to lower its number in the speech tonight. But he's he can do that afterwards. But tonight, he is going to reach out and say, look, let's talk listening to go. She ate let's work something out. So we can end this shutdown, but he's also going to be tough. He's remember that national lampoon cover by this magazine or will shoot this dog. Yeah. I think he's going to say to congress if you don't act and build this wall, I have the authority as president to take twenty three billion dollars from the defense budget and start building a wall. Do you think finally Alex Kosta Janos DC insider, ABC news political analysts? Do you think this will move the needle, do you think we're going to get closer to getting the government reopened fully after Donald Trump speaks tonight? Or you think this just continues on? I think both I think this will move the needle, I think Trump will be effective elevating this crisis, and we will expand support. But I don't think the Democrats can meet him halfway there's a new democratic freshman class in the house that is. Very radical. And they don't wanna see Nancy Pelosi give Trump one brick of this wall. So I don't think the shutdown end. But I think the president built support for acting independently and starting to build this wall on his own. All right. Thanks a lot Alex Kosti Janos there. It is six forty eight and we will cover the president will carry his address live.

Epstein admits he conspired to silence victims

"It is here where Epstein's lawyer drop that civil suit and basically in the process admitted that F scene was trying to do. Do everything that he could to stop those alleged victims from speaking. Jeffrey Epstein did not apologize directly to his accusers Tuesday. Let through his lawyer said his attempts to silence, then and their attorney were wrong. Josh. Hurtful allegations. Epstein had also been trying to derail a lawsuit filed by his accusers in two thousand eight which says investigators identified more than thirty girls who were told they were being hired to give Epstein massages but were sexually assaulted. Instead. Epstein often preyed on teenagers from broken homes. That's according to accusers who spoke with the Miami Herald. And he tried to put his finger in my underwear, and I like jumped back, and I went I pulled back, and I was like, whoa. But I've seen was never charged in most of those cases in two thousand seven he struck a secret deal with federal prosecutors who let him plead guilty to lesser sex charges in state court. He served just thirteen months in a county jail. The deal was approved by then US attorney Alex Kosta now the secretary of labor and the Trump administration. I don't think there's a person in America who would ever look at the facts of this case. And believe that there was even an actual punishment. Attorney Brad Edwards says his clients were kept in the dark over Epsteins arrangement. Why do you think it happened? That's what we're still trying to uncover one reason that we know are factors money and power whitewater special. Prosecutor Ken Starr in Harvard law. Professor, Alan Dershowitz were part of Epstein star-studded defense team back then at the time of his arrest. Epstein was a powerful money manager who handled billions for his clients his circle of friends included Prince, Andrew Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton who reportedly took at least twenty-six trips on Epsteins private jet between two thousand one and two thousand three and two thousand and two Donald Trump told New York magazine Epstein quote likes beautiful women as much as I do and many of them are on the younger side. How many more victims? Do you think are out there local victims have said that when they were fourteen fifteen years old? They brought twenty five thirty girls to him. That's just one person.

Trump entities to be subpoenaed by state attorneys general

"The FBI launched a probe into allegations that Epstein sexually abused. Dozens of teenage girls by having his personal assistance Lord into to his home where they thought they would be paid for giving massages but would instead perform sex acts to fight those allegations. Epstein assembled a legal dream team that included Alan Dershowitz and former special prosecutor, Kenneth Starr, the multi-millionaire could have faced life in prison. But with their help struck a deal, he pleaded guilty to state felony prostitution charges and served a thirteen month sentence. Epstein was allowed to spend up to twelve hours a day. Six days a week at his office. The federal prosecutor who agreed to the lenient sentence in that case, Alex Kosta, the current US secretary of labor Epstein was known to be politically connected flight law. Obtained by several media organisations indicate that former President Bill Clinton was on Epsteins private jet at least twenty six times between two thousand one and two thousand three f- seen supposedly new President Donald Trump who said in a two thousand two interview with New York magazine that F scene is a terrific guy. And that Epstein likes beautiful women as much as I do and many of them are on the younger side. Mr. Trump's attorney told Fox News there was no relationship between Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump. The now sixty five year old Epstein was one of the most successful money managers in America, handling billions of investors money if it were someone else that didn't have that money or power. They would be in jail for life. That's just what would happen to a Costas spokesman said that this matter has been publicly addressed in that the US district attorney's office defended a cost his actions. Meanwhile, Edward says that the settlement that he reached with Epstein. Included an apology and a competent financial agreement.

"KTAR in-depth if we didn't show them strength at a strong border and nobody's Schoener stronger border. If we didn't do that, you would have hundreds of thousands of people pouring into our country. Joining us now on Arizona's morning news RDC insider, ABC news political analyst, Alex Kosta, Janos, Alex. It's really virtually just about all we're talking about this morning the border. What happened at the sandy Cedric crossing on Sunday. The migrants rushing the border on Sunday, really bolstered. Donald Trump has been saying all along about the caravan. Didn't it? It turns out to Donald Trump didn't make up the caravan that it actually are caravan of people who want to come to this country illegally if necessary. Poor people in Latin American countries Gallup did a survey not long ago and found that there are one hundred and seventy six million people in Latin America who would rather be in the United States because of our prosperous economies. So Trump is right. If we don't demonstrate we have a strong border that you have to come here legally in a not illegally the world would look like a very different place. It's very unfortunate for the people who are peace loving and are just trying to get away from the violence in their country that people that are mixed amongst them brought violence to our border, and is kind of ruining for everybody else as far as the asylum goes, but what what happened on Sunday does that give Donald Trump any political capital for the wall? Or is it just getting past a democratically controlled house of representatives just too much of a hurdle to get over? Well, they're they're trying to Republicans are trying to get some wall funding. Before the Democrats takeover in January. So December seven th is the date. The government is supposed to shut down. Again, a partial shutdown and Trump is using that as leverage to get five billion dollars more for the wall. Now, so far Republican Senator saying Mr President will get you that five billion but over two years, not the one year you want, and that's where the negotiations are. I would bet Trump is going to get a little more funding the otherwise would have because of this border crisis. All he has to do is point to some of the footage of them ripping that fence that was made with scrap metal from the military ripping that fence apart is a crawl through it, Alex. I mean, it really are very striking images once again plays right into Trump stereotypes. It's exactly what he said it. We're not hearing a lot of people in the mainstream. News media apologize and saying, you know, we said this was a made up crisis. We said there's not any wasn't a threat to law and order that nobody would ever really show up at the border. Gee, we were wrong. It's isn't it? Interesting that we're not hearing that. So yes, it turns out that countries should have borders and people should be allowed to come here legally not illegally. Donald Trump makes a distinction between legal and illegal immigration. And I think Democrats often don't all immigration is good. And that's the difference. I think the American people are seeing. All right. Always good to talk to you. Alex, Alex, Janos ABC news political analysts.
