"A fashion show to the masses, one that was so much more diverse and so much more resident I think with customers that the Victoria's Secret model well, you know it is astonishing. I love my catalogs, You know, Prana title nine. Suddenly, there are women who look like women. You know, they look like people you know, and it it seems like it happened overnight. And it seems perfectly normal now. So it was, you know, a shift in the marketing, obviously, but also a shift in what people want. Talk about that You mentioned one company. Um there's others. Third love true and company that seemed to be reflecting more about how women want to shop for underwear but also What women want not to push up bra but a sports bra? Mm hmm. We've seen it a definite shift in the laundry conversation towards comfort force people wearing what makes them feel like the best version of themselves rather than being told what they should wear what they should wear for others how they should want to look. And I would say that that attitude that positional intimate apparel has further increase has become even more apparent during the year of the pandemic or since the time of the pandemic when Everyone was focused on comfort. Everyone was at home were wearing lounge or we'll bring Bralettes and the Victoria's Secret brand was not built on you wearing these products to feel like the best version of yourself. It was built on you wearing these products. To feel sexy. And right now, people who wear lingerie want to be told you're sexy and desirable and attractive. As is you don't need to look like a supermodel to be attractive. You're okay as you are. Yeah, Look, The Washington Post took a deep dive into this, They noted other reasons. The decline of malls where the Victoria's secret stores are also the relationship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself while in jail. Who managed the finances of Leslie Wexner, who was founder of the Victoria's Secret parent company, L brands, and Epstein used to pass himself off as a Victoria's Secret model recruiter. He was not So that tainted the company. Do you think Victoria's secret can come back? I'm really not sure so many customers have left the brand. Victoria's secret is in the unenviable position of being a brand people want to see fail. And that's going to be really difficult to overcome, and the thing they have on their side is still there size still their presence in the market. They're not going to disappear overnight. I don't believe they're going to have a lot of consumers coming back, but maybe they'll be able to attract new customers. And Cora. We've been talking about Victoria's secret, given them a lot of air time we've named some other companies. You who watch this industry just tick off a few that women might want to check out for the reasons you mentioned they seem to care about their customers. They're offering things like comfort. Uh, I would say airy is one such company. They really initiated a change in the way people talked about laundering the way people saw it and what they expected from models. Of course, Savage X Fenty by Rihanna is on the tip of everyone's tongue when it comes to intimate apparel. Right now, they've become known for having a diverse range of models. We also see, Um I would say industry stalwarts like, Say hello Me, which specializes in those plus size bras for larger bus that are doing more as well. I would say in terms of attracting more diverse consumers, So the wonderful thing about Being into laundry right now is that there are more options than ever before, And that's also going to be part of what Victoria's secret has to overcome. They're not the only game in town anymore. Customers can choose to go somewhere else. That's Corre Harrington, founder of the Laundry, added the world's largest online laundry blog core..

"But to your point earlier in the you know the segment where, you know the more people, the more things that the better off you can can be, But I think what's going to be interesting for them. And this is where the jury's out. Is this because you know the question is. Is this a smart move or not? I think the jury is pulling away from what they were great at, Um, even though it may have been behind the curve and becoming sort of a jack of all trades master of none. Are they going to be able to more effectively compete against all these upstarts that have been pulling away or are they going to become more and more obscure? Because they don't have that claim in any one particular segment? Yeah, we should point out that Retail billionaire by the name of Leslie Wexner. Uh what the company in 82. He was an associate in some way, shape or form with Jeffrey Epstein. And that's how That's how they got into this. Uh, it's how Epstein entered in the picture. And I think Epstein is and what he did is as well known No need to go into it here for this this discussion, but Yeah, I I think that they presented and they presented an image of a woman. I thought that was really unrealistic and look. Don't don't particularly care. I have no brand loyalty to the underwear I wear. I wear What's comfortable and what makes me feel comfortable. So somebody running around telling me what kind of underwear I should buy for me. Is like I could care less. I could care less. If an athlete wears it or an actor. Where is it? It doesn't It doesn't matter to me. How much did it did? It mattered to the everyday woman? Because was it more of Victoria's secret having a a corner on the market, or was it more because, uh, they're just was this image that they were, you know, presenting that everybody wanted to be mean. Where was the Where was the intersection on that? Well, I think that I think what's interesting about Victoria's secret as as if you go all the way back to the beginning. Um, they were created as a store that men could shop in. That so many men that wanted to buy lingerie for their girlfriend or wife, whoever, Um there wasn't a place to go where they feel comfortable buying it, so they I never saw him. I never saw many men in the store. Maybe you did. I don't know. I mean, nice try there, but I don't think that happened to you. Well, it changed, right. So when I say all the way back to beginning this is literally the beginning. Now, over time it it changed to your point right? There weren't very many men in there. But there was still men buying online. There was still meant buying a catalogue. But then the interesting thing is the women that were buying and you know that there's no official study. I can point to, but you know, a lot of them are buying it for their boyfriend or husband or whatever. So Victoria's secret had this interesting model of who really is the customer. Um, is that the man with the ball of paying for it because at the end of the day who's getting the benefit of this, so I think that there's this interesting mode where you had.

now democracy now dot org the warren peace report i'm amy goodman the supreme court is starting a new term today in washington tuned. see the court will be hearing major cases this year involving reproductive rights immigration the second amendment and LGBTQ rights on tuesday the court will hear arguments in three cases to determine whether LGBTQ people can be fired from their jobs due to their sexual orientation shen or gender identity it's been described as quote the most important case directly addressing LGBTQ people ever to reach the united states the supreme court under title seven of the civil rights act employers can not discriminate against employees on the basis of sex as well as race you're national origin and religion but the trump administration claims the law does not covered discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity one of the cases centers on a transgender woman from michigan named amy stevens who was fired from her job at a funeral home in two thousand thirteen when i was fired he'd may be mad to say the least i was hurt did i was being treated that way after the commitment and service that i provided and that's when family hit home too we weren't treated tames everybody else was tom somebody stood up and said enough is enough the case is marked the first time the supreme court will rule on LGBTQ right since conservative justice brett cavanaugh replaced anthony kennedy who had written many of the courts major LGBTQ rights rulings we're joined now by two guests laverne cox is with us award winning trans actress longtime trans rights activists best known for her role of fevers set on the show orange is the new black in two thousand fourteen she became the first transgender person on the cover of time magazine and the first openly transgender person to be nominated for a primetime emmy award and acting category we're also joined by chase gio deputy director for transgender justice with the ACLU's LGBT and HIV project his work include impact litigation as well as legislative and administrative advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ people and people living with hiv across the united states we welcome you both to mcreavy now it's great to have you with us tuesday is a very significant day in the supreme court laverne cox talk about the cases that are before the high court it's the first time the supreme court will hear any case involving transgender rights two inches into civil rights with amy stevens case and there's two other cases of where to gay men were also fired their jobs simply for being who they are and this is the first time the court will hear cases about whether or not title seven applies to the LGBT q plus community this has huge ramifications for us because we know that this administration has been trying to take transgender people specifically but the LGBTQ community in general out of the realm of protections of leaked memo that we all remember from a year ago where they want to change the definition of sex so that translates i wouldn't have any recourse under the law the protests that ensued after that the new directive from h h s and from hud they wanna discriminate against sets in housing and in health care so this is really huge not just for the LGBTQ community but also any worker who might not conform to someone else's idea of how they should express under so you did something very unusual at the emmys your guest your plus one was one chase strain gio and wanted to go to describe the scene and why you decided to do this well i noticed that not a lot of people were talking about this case i think it's the most consequential civil rights case for LGBTQ writes in my lifetime no one was really talking about is chasing a few other people and what can i do and so i was nominated for my third emmy this year and it was going to be going to the emmys and i knew that would be a platform where a lot of people will be paying attention and so i i was like well we should take chase and we should talk about this in the red carpet my status got the idea of making a clutch that say title seven october eight supreme court parker designed and we went and we went with the mission and we're showing the images let's hear chase on the red carpet with laverne cox october eight everyone should be aware at the administration is asking the supreme court to make it legal to fire workers just because they're LGBTQ and this is actually going to transform the lives of LGBTQ people an people who are not LGBTQ anyone who departs from sex stereotypes like all the fabulous people here for example so we really need to show up october eighth and pay attention because our lives are really align so that's chase strain geo of the ACLU the plus one with laverne cox at the emmys again as i said earlier laverne is the i openly trans actress to be nominated for an primetime and the any acting category so you use that moment we're the world was watching that was an interview on each ace described further the significance of this case and the trump administration stance i wish it changed yeah so so you know as laverne said tomorrow the supreme court is going to be hearing arguments in these three cases that will absolutely transform the legal landscape for btcu people and not just LGBTQ people but all women in particular but anyone who who departs from from sex stereotypes and what is really bounding particularly mamie stevens case that the case was filed in two thousand fourteen by the EEOC equal employment opportunity commission that is the agency that enforces title seven and that agency brought the case arguing that when amy was fired at violated title seven and so the case is actually the EEOC versus harris funeral homes the employer that fired amy just because she she is transgender and so it went up through the courts in that posture after the election the presidential election of two thousand sixteen the ACLU intervened on behalf of amy because we were concerned that that the agency and the administration would no longer defend the rights.

"Turning to the John Batchelor show six eight current affairs we're talking about on the John chancellor show on KGO I'm John this is John Batchelor show Gregory Zuckerman special investigator for the Wall Street journal and the author of the forthcoming the man who solved the market about a very famous Jim Simons and renaissance is writing now about a case that infamous this is the matter of Jeffrey abstain sixty six years old now in custody charged with crimes against young people against young females abusing at several unacceptable language however once upon a time in important introduction this is in the nineteen eighties between Jeffrey abstain and a man named Leslie Wexner who is Leslie Wexner well more importantly who introduced Jeff absent a Leslie Wexner Jimmy Cayne an ace Greenberg of Bear Stearns Gregory a very good evening to you based Greenberg and Jimmy Cayne at the time of the introduction what weight with they have carried with Leslie Wexner and who was Leslie Wexner that they're all talking together good evening to you you're a great to be very nice to speak with you again so yeah just taking a step back Jeffrey abstain really Clinton been who he was without Leslie Wexner Leslie Wexner is a retail Empresarial a retail mogul he ran a company or or has controlled for years the company has billion areas from Columbus Ohio and he controls a company called el brands which is in which owns a lot of different well known brands including Victoria's secret and he was introduced to Jeffrey dean by Alan Greenberg hold a screamer again Jimmy Kane and as you suggest there is a is a really important introduction because to have seen really it's not clear what other clients he had beef besides this Leslie Wexner and the ensuing his wealthy or half as wealthy as he has stated that Jeffery actions mail out of money from a people as a problem unless you actor and and maybe just left Leslie Wexner right that's part of the part of the Mister bad abstinence is word billionaire associated with him because you're going to the root of the story you report that before I have seen worked as a watchdog a commodity and know a commodity trader an options trader at Bear Stearns he was a math teacher at the Dalton school so this is not a the prize of Harvard Business School this is not a man who was already a multi millionaire on Wall Street which were accustomed to this was a guy who worked at ace Greenberg do we know what charms he had to name it but it did anybody speak of how it is that Greenberg and Kane felt that it was correct to introduce him to wax now yes so as you suggest Jeffrey abstain suggests and is always suggested that he is quite wealthy they to billionaire but we really no reason to think that in the court proceedings there's a suggestion that is worth five hundred million dollars that may be the case may not be the case it could be that he is prop the work that much but it could be some and get on that as well but he is a wealthy guy and the reason why it is you also kind of suggest he was a teacher originally in in frankly didn't graduate college you got this teacher and upscale procedures Upper East Side school called the Dalton school and because he left an impression and one of the children of Alan Greenberg side child son he was recommended to to hire him in at the time their strange was very scrappy upstart firm name they like to hire people were poor and had a deep desire to be rich and that's what they called it and he was one of them said Jeffrey Greenberg had this appetite I'm sorry we have seen had this appetite to get wealthy he got hired on to work at Bear Stearns only worked there for a few years before he got fired doing some work on a follow up story about what happened there and why he did get fire but he got fired in yet the way he was recommended by Grimbergen came to work with Wexner they had establish a little bit of a relationship and their Stearns Wexner in Aberdeen but I'm Greenberg and Kane said yeah we fired him but we recommend them none the less and the idea was this guy was pretty smart he was well respected internally others saw him more and more charming and in more than empty suit but there were some people internally that I've spoken to who did have something I think is a about Jeffrey obscene just as an intellect didn't think it was all that dedicated to the firm itself is mostly dedicated to himself to his career and his future but an intellect they did it given some credit I note that he was working options at Bear Stearns and I I'm connecting this because I read your stories is if it's a novel and there's a payoff coming all right it he specializes he told laxer in finding missing money is that a clever way of saying options options on your stocks is that what he was doing Reagan and his agent has resourceful digging into it my understanding is missing money he left in person and he did some other things besides investing this Jeffrey abstained could be taxes could be some to some people he sort of suggested yet you're wealthy I can help you reduce your taxes I don't know why you need a Jeffrey opt in and out of the taxes during that kind of thing but maybe these were especially creative ways or he leaves he suggested he was aware of innovative ways to to reduce taxes but others have kind of said he did other things like tracking down real money from from the kind of governor for the government's any he he like to create a little bit of a mystery about hand Jeffrey abstain it helps when you're running a little bit of this game or alleged game to have that there about you in in in your head he was very charismatic and it was us air ministering to people just like being around him and it helped his cause and it helped people on to become enamored with them and this this Leslie Wexner clearly was for what for whatever reason the heat for years for about two decades as we write our story in the Wall Street journal they had a very close relationship which was mutually beneficial on Leslie Wexner seem to like being around Jeffrey up the interesting thing to make a lot of money from Leslie Wexner there about fifteen years apart you tell the story that an executive who work for Mister wax or his name is Mara ski did not feel threatened by abstain because he was dealing with his personal investments not the company's not the corporation's investments and so that seem to protect that stay in our day we know effect scene was getting involved in L. brand was he was he is he a holder of our brand stock do we know if he was taking stock from Baxter well early on as you suggested absinthe date out of the business and your people that warned Leslie Wexner don't get involved with Jeffrey abstain isn't about him not talked a bunch of people from back in those days and they had concerns about abstaining from their finger on it but the way they described it and you know maybe it's in hindsight it doing this kind it but they said at the time that day would across the street if he was walking in there with their way just something about him he seemed a little flex to select for them and they warned Wexner about abstain any ads acting computer now this relationship with an overtime as he really did start inserting himself into the business itself into westerners retail business to the point where especially when it came to the Victoria secret he kind of callous just so I can help you pick the models in you know in hindsight is sort of more disturbing than than anything else but yeah over time after dean to some extent got involved a little bit in the business the mansions that they have seen is now offering for bail the airplane that up steam flies honor did fly on I have read that those were transferred to him by waxing or do we know did he pay for them were those salary do we know anything about how we acquire those assets yes really good question because I've seen different document suggesting different things on there was a transferred there was some money paid I'm not sure who was market priced he may have got a good deal in real state has just appreciated as we all know so whatever he did pay at a time it's it's that's a good child as well the real statement the planes I mean there are some people were dismissive of things like the plains of seven twenty seven eight days old sold is it goes to the point that he had this image as a millionaire as jet setter anyone but he may have exaggerated the extent of his wealth and in an LP business he pretended he kind of that I only take clients who are billionaires just makes us a lot of people climbing clear what kind of training you did all other than to deal with WebSphere it does seem like he did some activities for Webster over the years even starting way back decades decades ago he did some trading for Lexus so that was one client but frankly I'm I'm trying to dig up more of them the breakup of the relationship when do we think it happened and why well it did happen around the time that he was first accused of engaging with inappropriate you a young women so it could be that Webster was tipped off he heard about it he got to the suggestion that he was doing in appropriate things and they broke off it could be something separate if it's not clear yet but I I do get the impression that after he was charged a really nothing much to do with each other these to be very close to speak at least one when he was charged in two thousand and eight to hand you report that the relationship started breaking down in two thousand and seven so more than more than ten years ago yep and it again it could have been a bit Bristol Asia started breaking down because love to actually start hearing about what he was doing down there and it could have been something separate I'm still trying to understand that myself has the way has Wexner or his attorneys responded in any fashion to your piece in the Wall Street journal really really cold or or sponsor statement from them which is a little bit surprising you would think you would be distancing himself but he could just be trying to be below the radar screen right now and to his credit Leslie Wexner is among the more philanthropic a businessman in our country just got a needs you know late in life in his eighties it's got to be quite discouraging to have your name besmirched by your relationship and there's no indication we should make that clear is no indication Leslie Wexner was aware of any of the accusations of before they became public Raleigh ground Jeffrey abstaining again to his credit yet many New York society Hey embraced embraced abstained after he was released from prison and we don't know indication and think the blood to after death more learned Gregory's occur men for the wall yeah journal much more to learn about at staying in custody I'm John bachelor this is the John

ran a company here or has controlled for years the company has billion areas from Columbus Ohio and he controls a company called el brands which is in which owns a lot of different well known brands including Victoria's secret and he was introduced to Jeffrey dean by Alan Greenberg ace Greenberg and Jimmy Cayne and as you suggest there's a there's a really important introduction because testing really it's not clear what other clients he had besides this Leslie Wexner and the ensuing his wealthy or half as wealthy as he has the Jeffrey things me a lot of money from the people is from led to actor and and maybe just left Leslie Wexner right that's part of the part of the Mister bad I've seen this is word billionaire associated with him because you're going to the root of the story you report that before I have seen worked as a watchdog Hey commodity and know a commodity trader an options trader at Bear Stearns he was a math teacher at the Dalton school so this is not the prize of Harvard Business School this is not a man who was already a multi millionaire on Wall Street which were accustomed to this was a guy who worked at ace Greenberg do we know what charms you had to name it but it did anybody speak of how it is that Greenberg and Kane felt that it was correct to introduce him to wax yes so as you suggest Jeffrey abstain suggests and although he suggested that he is quite wealthy they to billionaire believe really no reason to think that in the court proceedings there's a suggestion that is worth five hundred million dollars that may be the case may not be the case it could be that he is a prop he worked out much but it could be some and get on that as well but he is a wealthy guy and the reason why it is you also kind of suggest he was a teacher originally in in frankly didn't graduate college you got to teach at an upscale procedures Upper East Side school called the Dalton school and because he left an impression and one of the children of Alan Greenberg side child son he was recommended to to hire him in at the time they're strangers very scrappy upstart firm DNA like to hire people were poor and had a deep desire to be rich and that's what they called it and he was one of them said Jeffrey Greenberg had this appetite I'm sorry I'm just guessing had this appetite to get wealthy he got hired on to work at Bear Stearns only worked there for a few years before he got fired doing some work on a follow up story about what happened there and why he did get fire but he got fired and yet he will he was recommended by Grimbergen came to work with Wexner they had establish a little bit of a relationship of their stern's Wexner in acting but Greenberg and Kane said yeah we fired him but we recommend them nonetheless and the idea was this guy was pretty smart he was well respected internally others saw him more and more charming and in what an empty suit but there were some people internally that I've spoken to who did have something I think is a about Jeffrey have seen just as an intellect didn't think it was all that dedicated to the firm itself is mostly dedicated to himself to his career and his future but an intellect they did it given some credit I note that he was working options at Bear Stearns and I I'm connecting this because I read your stories is if it's a novel and there's a payoff coming around it he specializes he told laxer in finding missing money is that a clever way of saying options options on your stocks is that what he was doing levay Guinness's aged histories were still digging into it my understanding is missing money impression that he did some other things besides investing Jeffrey apps being could be taxes could be some to some people he sort of suggested yet you're wealthy I can help you reduce your taxes on a why you need a Jeffrey opt in and out of the taxes during that kind of thing but maybe these were especially creative ways or he leaves he suggested he was aware of innovative ways to to reduce taxes but others have kind of said he did other things like tracking down real money from from a kind of governor for the government's any he'd like to create a little bit of a mystery about hand Jeffrey abstain it helps when you're running a little bit of this game or alleged game to have that there about you in in in your head he was very charismatic and there is an air of mystery into people just like being around him and it helped his cause and it helped people become enamored with them and get this plus who works there clearly was for what for whatever reason on the heat for years for about two decades as we write our story in the Wall Street journal they had a very close relationship which was mutually beneficial Leslie Wexner seem to like being around Jeffrey up the interesting thing to make a lot of money from Leslie Wexner there about fifteen years apart you tell the story that an executive who work for Mister wax or his name is Maraj gay I did not feel threatened by upsetting because he was dealing with his personal investments not the company's not the corporation's investments and so that seemed to protect abstain do we know if that scene was getting involved in L. brand was he was he is he a holder of our brand stock do we know if he was taking stock from Mexico well early on as you suggested absinthe date out of business and your people that warned Leslie Wexner don't get involved with Jeffrey emptiness something about him that talked a bunch of people from back in those days and they had concerns about actinic on their finger on it but the way they described it and you know maybe it's in hindsight it doing this kind of but they said at the time that day would across the street if he was walking in there with their way just something about him he seemed a little select to select for them and they warned Wexner about fifteen and yeah acting it out as relationship that over time and he really did start inserting himself into the business itself into westerners retail business to the point where especially when it came to the Victoria's secret he kind of callous just so I can help you pick the models and you know in hindsight is sort of more disturbing than than anything else but yeah over time emptiness to some extent got involved a little bit in the business the mansion that death scene is now offering for bail the airplane that up steam flies honored did fly on I have read that those were transferred to him by waxing or do we know did he pay for them with a salary do we know anything about how we acquire those assets yes really good question because I think different document suggesting different things on there was a transferred to was the money paid I'm not sure of was market price he may have got a good deal in real state has just appreciated as we all know so whatever he did pay at the time it's it's that's a good chunk of as well the real statement the planes I mean there are some people were dismissive of things like the plains of seven twenty seven eight days old sold is it goes to the point that he had this image as a billionaire as jet setter anyone but he may have exaggerated the extent of his wealth and in in a help to the business he pretended he kind of that I only take clients who are billionaires just makes us a lot of people try to make clear what kind of training you did all other than to deal with WebSphere it does seem like you did some activities for watching over the years even starting way back decades decades ago he did some trading for Lexus so that was one client but frankly I'm I'm trying to dig out more about the breakup of the relationship went to rethink it happened and why well it did happen around the time that he was first accused of engaging with inappropriate you a young women so it could be that Webster was tipped off he heard about it he got to the suggestion that he was doing in appropriate things and they broke off it could be something separate if it's not clear yet but I I do get the impression that after he was charged there really is nothing much to do with each other these to be very close to speak at least one when he was charged in two thousand and eight and you report that the relationship started breaking down in two thousand and seven so more than more than ten years ago yep and it again it could have been a bit racial issues of started breaking down because love to act to start hearing about what he was doing down there and it could have been something separate I'm still trying to understand that myself has the way has Wexner or his attorneys responded in any fashion to your piece in the Wall Street journal we'll have a quarter or sponsor statement from them which is a little bit surprising you would think you would be distancing himself but he could just be trying to be below the radar screen right now and to his credit less electors among the more philanthropic a businessman in our country to the guy and he's you know late in life in his eighties it's gonna be quite discouraging to have your name besmirched by your relationship and there's no indication we should make that clear no indication Leslie Wexner was aware of any of the accusations of before they became public Ramallah ground Jeffrey abstaining again to his credit many New York society Hey embraced embraced abstain after he was released from prison and we have no indication of thing to do after death more learned Gregory's occur men for the well yeah journal much more to learn about at staying in custody I'm John bachelor this is the John Batchelor show balance of nature changing the world one life at a time I have been plagued with this topic is acid and it burns the esophagus I've had it for thirty years and I've had doctors give me prescriptions for and everything and never got rid of it I've been on that balance of nature for about three and four months it is completely gone and I didn't even notice it it has to be about the nature because it's the only supplement I'm Katie and I just wanted you to know that because it.

"Let's go back to the woman who originally broke the story Cheetah Sarnoff. She wrote an article for Vanity Fair in which the editor had a meeting with Epstein and cut out all the salacious details of his his sexual abuse. The timing of all of this is very interesting. It was two thousand two when this came to light but it wasn't until two thousand seven two thousand eight very important years when <hes> the case went to trial and when this non prosecutorial agreement was put in place here she is explaining what was going on at the time my. My biggest question and I don't understand why no one is pointing fingers at and actually explaining why Berry Kirscher cut the deal that he cut the onus fell bill on the State Attorney's office as you know after the chief of Police Michael Ritter whom I spoke to at length for many many years since I started the investigation back in two thousand and nine Ritter said to me many times I did not accept except crushers deal. He wanted to charge him with a misdemeanor no jail time no restitution and no registration as a sex offender then he took the case Ritter takes the case to the feds. That's that's yes. Michael Root of the Palm Beach Police chief takes the case to the feds. That's when a cost comes in that's not until two thousand six and so a coster and his team with the Fanja and others they start to investigate it takes two years. There's a fifty three page indictment against Epstein but what happens well. We're getting close to the two thousand eight presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton is the democratic shoo-in at the time President Obama Obama was still not in in the forefront at the forefront and so I believe given the information that I have and what I read that at the very top of the food chain they did not want to make as the attorney general said to me when I interviewed him Alberto Gonzalez they did not want to make a political mess so they basically tapped a cost again which is also why they hired Ken Starr and Jay Lefkowitz who were the lack of high profile names involved in this thing -solutely they were the two attorneys who negotiated the plea deal meaning the non-prosecution agreement that was handed to Epstein which by the way was not an order as a cost told me because I have been speaking to a cost for many years since the original investigation and the original arrest so you'll notice that what you don't hear on the news is who was a cost of reporting to who was above above him who was the boss while there were a number of people who were the boss Gonzalez was <hes> was the boss and then we had to Eric holder come in as the boss. We had to extend extended term for F._B._I.. Director Robert Muller who was in there so what <hes> the original reporter here is saying is key got some kind of notice from higher hand because this would mess everything up for Hillary which and I remember US talking about this case back in those days and and I think even the the flight log was something that <hes> that had popped up at that time but that became a problem. This is <hes> attor Bradley Edwards. He is the attorney for the Victims Kim's. He's been on this case for a long time and there's the case of the little black book which was epsteins.

Sorry it was accidental a scan of a scan but it contains a whole bunch of interesting names this this was great evidence but it became toxic and the document you mentioned a moment ago listening to massage. Is that the little black book grail that every you know I think that's referred the documents right right exactly and that's actually a document that his housekeeper stole from him at some point in time and long story but eventually tried to sell it to me and then I had to cooperate with the F._B._i..
