I don’t care that he is a Democrat.
Being District Attorney of New York County (what the island of Manhattan is called as a county — as a borough of NYC it is Manhattan) is to hold a safely Democratic seat.
I don’t care that this DA had a distinguished father.
All I need to know are these two facts about HIS OFFICIAL actions.
1. He declined to prosecute Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. in 2012 — oh by the way you could check his political contributions, and the visit he got from Trump lawyer Mark Kasowitz
- As bad as the deal Acosta made with Jeffrey Epstein was, Vance tried to make it worse. He went into court to try to get Epstein’s sexual offender status lowered from Tier 3 to Tier 1. Fortunately the judge refused to acquiesce in that request.
Vance as District Attorney is supposed to represent the people of the State of New York, not the wealthy and powerful and those who hire lawyers with whom he is buddy buddy.
Just imagine if Ivanka and Don Jr. had been prosecuted, as the detectives in the case wanted . . .
It is past time for Vance to go.
Somebody please primary him.
Or maybe important New York politicians like Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand can demand his resignation, along with that of Acosta.
And I haven’t even mentioned what he did with Harvey Weinstein.
