  • Too late pedophile defender, Acosta? You're fired!
    Hint, actually READ the 53 page indictment you utterly hypocritical scumbags. It's ALL in there. You're boy is corrupt as a three dollar bill.

  • These people have absolutely no shame, their twisted perspective of this heinous crime is awe striking and appalling.

  • Doris Hillsman says:

    laura ingham trying to defend what a good job starr did getting this molester off she is despicable as they come

  • So when infowars was blasting this news about Epstein back in 2016, where was the national news coverage? Let that be a flag for all the outlets who didn’t cover it. Any coincidence infowars was the first main truther who gets banned by corporate tech giants? Soak it in…. it should all be crystal clear now

  • I tried to stay watching fox news…but all the one sided coverage is insulting really..not that there is an great alternative..but internet will due. I can use my own mind

  • It's amazing the other stories on this on fox are disabled. Most not want anything about your savoir trump posted on there. Your racist king.

  • Alan Dershowitz has done a very good job defending criminals. It's his job, whether they are pedophiles or murderers. It's his job to get them off. This is who he is. He takes on high profile cases worth a lot of money. He wins and gets people like Epstein and O.J. off. That is not against the law. He makes a lot of money doing it. That is not against the law either. What is for sure is just because Alan Dershowitz is so good at his job doesn't mean his clients were innocent. Just because Alan Deshowitz is so good at his job it doesn't mean the victims didn't suffer even more. So we applaud Alan for being so good and thank God more guilty people can't afford him.

  • Isn't is ironic the two lawyers that got a pedophile off work for FOX news? The guy that found the blue stained dress helped Alan Dershowitz get a billionaire pedophile off. Now FOX is defending the deal that got a billionaire pedophile off. The guy Trump once described as a terrific guy. The guy that made the deal with the pedophile's lawyers works for Trump. Acosta, Dershowitz & Starr, Attorneys at Law. What a team they made. At the end of the day once Followers of Trump are done cheering and hailing their chief and the best of the best that work for him underage girls were abused.

  • Acosta was required by law to notify the other victims of Epstein of the plea deal. It was simple thing to do. It makes me wonder if a little cash exchanged hands.

  • John Cook Australia 🇦🇺 . Ken Starr is a lawyer . What are they good for ? Twisting the truth is the speciality of the trade . Anything that comes out of their mouths is pure crap . Of course Trump is a clean skin . Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth . Pure as the driven snow . A real man of honour . One great fellow .
    Now if you believe that about Trump we have an opera house and a harbour bridge for sale here in Australia that are going concerns making very good turnover . They can be bought separately our as a single purchase. All serious offers will be considered accompanied by a $ 10,000 us holding fee . Send all offers to me in Queensland Australia.

  • Change my Diaper says:

    “People”… no Laura… not people… CHILDREN across state lines… MSM once again in sync… In sick pedophilic sync.. That’s not a slip.. That’s you showing your true colors…

  • HABAKKUK THE GREAT PROPHET says:

    Apex child predators types folks..Beware of Aquarius and Scorpios..Do not vote anymore fixed signs into any authority ever!!

  • These media people are keeping us distracted y’all noticed y’all don’t hear anything about that lawyer micheal avanati they sweeping that under the rug wake up this whole r Kelly an Epstein thing is a distraction

  • ken Starr is liar, BS, BS, BS. He is no doubt in this up to his neck and no doubt has had massages from Epsteins minors. One of the top. men in the swamp.

  • Benjamin Pruett says:

    Tough – yeah right.  Pretty much Epstein has some dirt on some powerful people who also took advantage of the Lolita express and got a get out of jail free card. Now they are exposed as letting an actual pedophile go free and most likely he continued to abuse children.  Acosta, Kenn Star, and Alan Derschowitz should be ashamed but they aren't.

  • Hey Ken, why don't you mention the secret plea deal, that by law, has to inform the victims that it is being made. it is illegal not to inform them.

  • Fionnuala Hussey McCarthy says:

    how can Ingram interview this man, the case was brought back because the victims (left out in the cold) were offended by 'the under the table' deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and thank goodness the unredacted papers fell into the right hands NOW let the public see all the sealed (unredacted) documents. There are new victims coming out of the woodwork with confidence to speak up and Epstein will not be able to silence then. I suspect he has other passports maybe to Belgium, UK Ireland (when back in the 1990's Irish government were handing out passports for money. OHHH and when he was arrested on in NJ airport who was on the returning plane from Paris (underage trafficked girls)????

  • Alric the Red says:

    What a hypocrite this woman is. If Acosta was in a Democratic Administration, she'd be demanding his head on a pike. Now she's questioning whether he should have been asked to resign at all. Seriously? What the hell. I don't care if he resigns or not, and I have no real opinion. However, I've watched her show, and I know how she'd react if this was the other way around. Partisan reporting for a partisan-stupid viewership.

  • These people are monsters. How can they give a pass to this scum? A 52 page indictment naming over 30 girls that wasn't presented in court to the dismay of the investigating team, a deal made in private ,away from Acosta's office. Why are they white washing these paedo enablers?

  • so deceptive. Laura Ingraham grates. Far prfer Tucker Carlson. Anyway, neither she nor Starr are mentioning Kirsher's (not sure about spelling —- state prosecutor) vehement denial of Acosta's claim that the plea deal was the best he could do.

  • LaVonne Gardino says:

    I WANT TO KNOW WHY IN MILITARY INSTULATIONS , PUBLIC OFFICES, AIRPORTS, I AM SUBUGATED TO HAVE TO WATCH CNN, I HAVE HEARD THERE IS PUSHBACK BY THE PUBLIC BUT NOT HEARING ANY OFFICIAL AMINISTRATION REGULATIONS ON THIS ISSUE, GOOGLE IT, WE ARE MANY!

  • Emery Coppola Jr. says:

    Yeah, Acosta "played tough" with Epstein. Just like Michael Spinks played tough with Mike Tyson, who knocked Spinks out with one punch. LOL

  • Laura, I like you but acting as if this man did nothing wrong and stepped down because of the liberal mob is BS!!! This man had more then enough to go after Epstein for everything! He didn’t. He took a plea deal without asking the defendants if they wanted to accept or take to trial….illegal. He allowed Epstein to plea out to a lesser charge of solicitation of a minor rather then trafficking a minor and again when minors are involved u cannot take a lesser plea in order to get a conviction. Stop this right left paradigm. This isn’t right or left its government corruption

  • Crystal Myrick says:

    LAURA LAY OFF THE BOTOX ALREADY OMG!! AND TRUMP AND EPSTEIN AND DERSHOWITZ AND STARR ETC DA WERE TOLD TO BACK OFF DUE TO EPSTEIN BEING IN MOSSAD!!!

  • Max-Jayde Romero says:

    Ugly Awful woman … Acosta resigned for a real tangible reason and I cannot believe you all are making him a hero.

  • if this was someone playing tough, then your all a bunch of spineless jellyfish. quick, cover it up as soon as possible. yall suck.

  • i dont know any criminals that get to leave jail for 16 hours a day. what a bunch of bend overs. i hope all involved, including trump if he is involved, go to prison till they die there. if barr is told to get back involved with this case that points to donald needing protection. if that isnt the case why does he even care about this case. i dont think he involves himself or barr for all sexual based cases that happen in the united states, so why now, why. its pretty clear why……

  • Brian Fletcher says:

    This is a blackmail chain, where the vulnerable male succumbs to his more basic instincts, is set up, and gets caught up in the blackmail trafficing.
    All based on body and sexual guit, perpetuated by religious organisations.

  • Russell Kozlosky says:

    Is this acceptable to anyone??? Ken helped this monster continue his disgusting life… it’s not a big surprise he supports Acosta for folding. This should be considered disgusting on all levels by everyone. I can not continue taking these fools seriously —- poor poor poor Acosta- no mention of the countless victims around the world who needlessly suffered each and every day since that disgusting day when Kenny saved his friend from justice.

  • Analogous to Tower 7 : EPSTEIN 2020 says:

    "Quoduis mendacium novis semper eget mendaciis quibus fulciatur."

    "Every lie requires always fresh lies to support itself."

    [Coranto: Journal of the Friends of the Libraries, Fall of 1966, Vol IV, No. I, The Folio Augustini of Schopenhauer, Martin Woods] (Is it not also true of every religion requiring "sacrifices"?)

  • No Laura, Acosta is not out of the cabinet because the media hates donald tRump. He's out of the cabinet because he was drawing too much attention and the dottard doesn't want or need the guilt by association. Another reason is because, the plea deal he arranged was illegal and makes it pretty clear that he was giving Epstein the smallest possible slap on the wrist. Because of the new information, it's looking like a part of that sweetheart plea deal is going to be dropped, that being the protection portion that prevented authorities from investigating and prosecuting any of Epstein's pals, like tRump who might have been involved in the sexual exploitation of children. Now things will get interesting. I'm guessing that, if Epstein doesn't make bail, He'll be "found" dead from being suicided.

  • Tree Climbing says:

    Barry Kirscher Palm County FL Prosecutor Attorney, was the (D) that attempted
    to persecute Rush Limbaugh when he got addicted to oxycontin.
    Then Dropped the Case against Epstein, like a hot potato. Ken Starr (R) was brought onboard to make it appear biased politics were Not in effect w Epstein.

  • Does anyone believe that the 'child molesting pedophile swamp' will prosecute and jail the 'child molesting pedophile swamp?'

  • Kim Cornelissen says:

    Yeah Acosta took a strong disposition in protecting Epstein and his ring of conspirators and his well connected friends.

  • Leave it to the Democrats to politicize a brutal criminal! Acosta is the only one that made sure some consequences were enforced! Epstein was a huge Democrat donor, just like Weinstein…Clinton, Schumer, Obama…but the media tried to pretend Trump had something to do with him…

  • this is ken starr lol he gave every lurid detail he could about monica lewinsky. had bill clinton been involved with this he'd have given every gory detail. he was the atty bullying and suppressing witnesses for epstien, i wonder if hes on any of the dvds

  • Well toooo bad Mr. Starr youre on the hot seat now for your incompetent ability to under oath tell the truth. This equals crime that you commit and you will pay for what you have done to these young innocent victims. Eat your words and weep you are going to jail.

  • Trump: "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy… He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side."

  • Defending a serial child rapist! How disgusting can you get! Unless you participated yourself in Epstein’s lolita network, like Dershowitz and Starr. Defending their own skin.

  • Marcelo Serrano says:

    “Bowed “ he even included a clause to release all co conspirators of any jeopardy? Ken and Alan who were bff with Epstein and had been at the the Lolita express? Federal law prohibits transportation of minors across state lines to essentially is another country. USV is nothing like the USA mainland.

  • ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME
    VATICAN HUMAN MASS GRAVES
    THESE PEOPLE ARE EVIL
    THESE PEOPLE ARE PEDOPHILES
    THESE PEOPLE ARE MURDERERS
    QANON ACTION REQUIRED
    WORLD OVER
    STORM VATICAN NOW!
    Q

  • Give me a brake Ken Starr, you are lying!!!!!I am needier party system supporter ! I said clean up our government!

  • YOU MUST HAVE NOTICED THAT ACOSTA CONTRADICTED ALL OF THIS ON CAMERA NEXT TO DONALD TRUMP! THE NEWS JUST TRIED TO COVER IT UP AFTER SHOWING YOU THE VIDEO!

  • Norma Souza-Brien says:

    Ken Starr’ is one of the most corrupt, hypocritical lawyer. This is the guy who tried to impeach Clinton and ended up with an affair with an intern. Sleazy and crooked as they come. And we see here’s defending a person who rapes children. Don’t believe anything he has to say.

  • Think about this when you listen to Starr defending Epstein: Starr's father hired Epstein to teach at an exclusive NYC private school but Epstein had no degree from any college and was not officially qualified to teach. The whole Epstein affair is probably the most significant example of rampant corruption among the ruling classes in the world. Going into interesting times.

  • So Laura, you angle here is: let perverts do what they will. No one has to be held accountable?
    Freaking hope you don't have children!!! No child deserves to be around child abuser freaks or apologists.

  • Clinton's pedophile organization came from the pizza shop and Epstein was the one running it. I know because I have family in NYC

  • So this makes it obvious that Ken Starr was hired to take down the Clintons but secretly help them get out of trouble ..back in the 90s…right? Just like Dan Harmon pretending to go after the Killers of Kevin Ives and Don Henry but secretly cover it up and protect the killers. Am i right on this? If so..u cant trust one god damned person who is claiming they are going to take anyone down or put in jail. I voted Trump because of all the Arkansas murders…but im beginning to believe that Trump is secretly in bed with the Clintons. He will protect them. His tweets are just part of the gag. Pretending to hate each other for some ultimate gain that they all benefit over. And at the same time..making us like like total morons. Even the scholars

  • Creepy guy. They're all linked together. Bottom line is Acosta folded like a wet blanket because he wanted to move up… in the dirty slimy swamp.
