RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): The left is, as we speak, editing the Jeffrey Epstein WikiLeaks page and removing the names of all Democrats. Oh yes they are. I know it's sleazy, I know it's dirty, but that's exactly what they've been doing overnight, and I've got examples here. And you know, the number one name mentioned in this story so far, the drive-by media, Alex Acosta, Trump's labor secretary, trying to get him fired. He was the federal -- he was the state attorney in Miami that signed the original deal with Epstein. He's not the story, Epstein's the story. There'a any number of people that could have prosecuted Epstein -- Preet Bharara, the SDNY.
