    The similarities seem striking, hence my question but it's also a man in power syndrome or a man with money or just a man who can.

    That's what I thought but then thought it was impossible.

    There appears to be a huge scandal about to break that could bring down many but will that be allowed.

    Is there any connection between Epstein and Berlusconi?

    Rather more than could even ten years ago.

    How many people can lay their hands on a billion dollars in liquid cash to invest with an investment whizz like this?

    That wasn't the usual version of the claim.

    It was "I only accept money from billionaires".

    I can't get my head around "I only accept a $1 billion investment in my fund."

    Epstein was one of those people that Wall Street people gossiped about (especially after Madoff). The two threads present in all of that gossip that I heard were a) the "girls/young women/models" and b) a strong belief that he never had anywhere near as much money as he claimed to have (something that should sound familiar w/r/t to the current President of the US.

    Fascinating speculation about Epstein's rise without trace. (which expands on one of the angles in one of Bruno's opening articles.)

    The Eye's been all over York's involvement for years.

    I've only just seen that. Saw Trump and Clinton mentioned but must have skimmed over that name.

    So Prince Andrew is clearly implicated. Hmmm.

    Acosta no doubt got his position for services rendered (many of which had nothing to do with Epstein, no doubt), but Bruno is right that he will be deposited under the bus if the story continues to get prominent attention on the teevee.

    Note this morning that Epstein lawyer Ken Starr has been on Fox News 65 times since the arrest without once being asked about his former(?) client.

    All the time over here, possibly even more than either Clinton or Trump.

    That's exactly what I was implying. I'm sure I've heard their names mentioned together.

    This will take time (if it ever happens). The investigative focus up to this point has very much been on Epstein, not his "friends".

    That has the potential to change (particularly if Ghislaine Maxwell is cooperating fully), but is by no means certain.

    Good riddance, of course. But it's interesting that the one senior person taken down on this is the one who protected Epstein and his associates. None of the actual associates seems to have been that damaged by association yet.

    No clue. I barely watch CNN in hotels.

    I think that he may be hiding out on the Vineyard, unless he's found a more MAGA-friendly place for the summer.

    How is Dershowitz holding up? He's still a regular on CNN right?

    You think it's a coincidence that Acosta is safely by his side in Washington?

    Well, I wouldn't say the Me Too movement has lost much steam yet, and Trump hasn't exactly bent over backwards to reassure that Acosta will stay in his job ("We're going to look at it very carefully"). He'll throw anyone under the bus to protect himself.
