BILL MCGURN (WALL STREET JOURNAL COLUMNIST): It's extraordinary to me that Jeffrey Epstein, I think it's clear, has done these terrible things to underage girls, and yet the entire focus of the story is on Mr. Acosta. I just find that incredible and it seems it speaks a lot to the Beltway. Let's find a political victim. Let's not even wait 'til the facts are [out], let's find a political victim, rather than going after the real monster here.
