It Could Be a Busy Week for Trump's Handlers

George H.W. Bush couldn't have died at a better time for Team Trump. What better distraction could they have to disrupt the week's news cycle.

There are two problems tomorrow.

The first will be revelations about Trump's short-lived national security advisor, former general Mike Flynn. Muller's prosecutors are to file their sentencing submissions tomorrow and they're expected to touch on his conversations with Russian diplomats about the lifting of sanctions.

The second landmine is a civil trial that begins tomorrow in Miami. The trial concerns convicted pedophile, multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his bevy of pals and enablers. Among Epstein's supposed friends were/are Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Donald Trump.

One of the plaintiffs, Virginia Roberts, claims she was recruited at the age of 15  and she maintains she was made to service not only Epstein but a member of the royalty, an academic and a politician. Roberts says she was recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell (daughter of late disgraced tycoon, Robert Maxwell) while working as a "towel girl" of Mar-a-Largo.

Epstein was charged and given a pat on the wrist, 13-month sentence in the county jail, by a prosecutor named Alexander Acosta who - small world - is now Trump's labor secretary.

Closing out the week will be the filing, on Friday, of the Mueller prosecution's summary of how Paul Manafort breached his plea bargain by lying to investigators and by leaking intel on the investigation to the White House.
