11. ADDENDUM : seems I may have been right for once.
The dodgy deal Epstein got was NOT engineered by Acosta at all, who got the best outcome possible, in the circumstances.
All fingers are now pointing at Barry KIRSCHER and his buddies.
Trump didn't want him to go, but Acosta obviously decided to resign to protect Trump, an honorable act. I've no doubt Trump will reinstate Acosta, or engage with him in another capacity, down the line.
