A list of over 170 names mentioned in court documents from a case against Jeffrey Epstein has been released. But did we actually learn anything, or is this just another distraction? Glenn reviews what was in the release, as well as what was not. While names like Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Donald Trump, Stephen Hawking, David Copperfield, and even Cameron Diaz were included in the list, we learned NOTHING about whether any of these famous people were actually involved in Epstein's illegal activities. Glenn makes the case that it's time to stop obsessing over names and start demanding that the FBI release the REAL answers. One man — FBI Director Christopher Wray — can make it happen. So, why hasn't he?
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Are you into this Jeffrey Epstein thing as much as it seems everybody else is?
STU: I think what I'm supposed to say is yes. But, you know, I don't know, man.
Look, I am very, very interested in what actually happened with Jeffrey Epstein, and many of these names that have been released and many more.
GLENN: So I'm there with you.
STU: Do you have a forever as well on this?
GLENN: I feel, beyond that, that's how I feel. I want to know. I want to know. But everything I'm hearing now, I also hear this in my head. Hmm.
Huh. That's -- gee. Jeffrey Epstein. Oh, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Stephen Hawking, David Copperfield.
What difference does -- what is this?
GLENN: This is a circus. This is a cake they're feeding us at the circus.
STU: Because I didn't get much that was new out of this.
At you? Was there anything that you saw in these names that you were surprised about? Tasted Copperfield was not a surprise, I have to say.
But none of this was a surprise.
We knew -- we knew -- we still don't know to the extent that Bill Clinton was involved in this. I want to know. But like --
GLENN: You're not going to --
STU: It doesn't seem like it. Like this is a bunch of people who were brought up by, you know -- in various -- everything is Cameron Diaz was brought. I don't think Cameron Diaz was involved.
I don't know, but all these names came up. And it strikes me as like, there's other information that is held, not in these lawsuits, but by the government.
GLENN: Wait. What?
STU: That I would actually like to know.
GLENN: Yeah. Well, we'll never see that.
STU: You know, Jeffrey Epstein lands on the tarmac. So he lands in an airport, private airport. Near New York City.
He is brought into custody. And at that moment, they go and raid his condo. The government takes all sorts of evidence. Tape. Documents. God knows what.
GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
STU: And then investry ep teen kills himself. Or you may have another theory on that.
And we never get any of this stuff.
GLENN: No, you know what, I've been fashioning a noose out of apaper napkins and lace doilies. Yeah. When I need to go.
Those lace doilies. And paper. Thin, thin, you know, single ply toilet paper nooses.
I'll be so dead, so fast.
STU: Yeah. I know. Certainly.
STU: But we don't have any of that information. And seeming no path to get it. At any point.
GLENN: Hmm. Hmm.
STU: Every little bit of evidence in this particular case is positive.
GLENN: But did you hear about Stephen Hawking in he was involved.
STU: But is that -- what am I supposed to do with that information?
What foyer did a what was at his condo?
What was there? Why don't we learn -- why don't we have that information by now?
GLENN: What are you talking about? Didn't you hear the guy who owns the Hyatt, the chain, you know, Brisker? He was possibly doing some -- we don't have any evidence of it. But he was named.
STU: And all these people have plausible deniability. Right? Because, look, in reality, this is real world. Jeffrey Epstein hung out with basically every power player that you know. Now, that doesn't mean that they were all hooking up with 12-year-olds. It doesn't. Many of them probably were.
GLENN: It could, America. It could. You should think that, but we should argue about that. We should say, well, Donald Trump. Well, Bill Clinton. Donald Trump. Bill Clinton. Donald Trump. Bill Clinton.
It's a cake and circus fest.
STU: Yeah. And I got to say too, there's a huge line here. But the Donald Trump part of this is particularly egregious. He was hanging out with Jeffrey Epstein. It's true. They were at parties. Donald Trump is on the record talking about how much Jeffrey Epstein likes younger women. They were at parties together. They weren't close friends. But they ran in powerful circles.
They were very rich people in powerful circles.
All of this long before any of the accusations of Epstein were public. You're hanging out with a person let's say, 12 years he was accused of a crime. There's no reason for you to be mentioned in the same sentence.
GLENN: No. And -- and before he was charged with a crime, Donald Trump kicked him out of Mar-a-Lago.
STU: Yeah. He didn't like him.
GLENN: No. And said, it was because he made some sexual advance on an underage girl. Banned him from the club. Divorced him as a friend.
STU: Long before.
GLENN: Before any of this came out.
STU: So it's really egregious to try to tie him into this thing. Now, Clinton was a much more -- he was on the plane a bunch of times.
GLENN: Maxwell is on the record saying, Bill Clinton likes them young.
STU: Gates met with -- Bill Gates met with Epstein after all of this stuff went down.
After he was already accused. And all that stuff went down. Where people knew, what Epstein was involved in. And he still was meeting with him.
GLENN: And his divorce with his wife is rumored to be about that. Before this became a big story, it was rumored that she was -- she had had it, with his relationship with Epstein. And she's like, you can't.
That was one of the things that was brought up in the divorce apparently.
STU: Again, all this stuff is just allegations. Is there more evidence to support anything nefarious here?
You've seen the interview with Bill Gates on this probably. But it's like, he's really uncomfortable. And it's weird.
But, you know, Gates is kind of a weird guy. Maybe that's -- maybe it doesn't mean anything. Who knows?
But we're just going down this road of, well, let's talk about Donald Trump.
Because you're mentioning Bill Clinton. We'll bring up Donald Trump.
It's just stupid.
It is the circus that you're talking about.
GLENN: So here's the thing that you should pay attention to. When anybody is talking about this today, you should say, you know, the FBI director has the black book.
All all of the evidence. Most likely, has all of the tapes, because they -- they took everything out of Jeffrey Epstein's house.
And it is now under the purview of the FBI, the director of the FBI.
Do you think that's too much power for one man to have?
To have all of that information. Do you think it was most likely done as an Intel operation.
Most likely, Jeffrey Epstein was an intelligence officer. Don't know for what country. Probably ours.
That's why no hands on. Nobody is going to say anything about him. He could get away, almost with murder.
So he was blackmailing people, or using that for other countries or our country, to blackmail people. Should one man in a -- in our government have access to that?
And because it is revolving around the rich, the powerful, the politically connected. Shouldn't we all have access to that?
Because if it was just a truck driver union, we would know all the names. We would know every single name. We would know exactly what they've done.
And they would be in jail if they had done something. So why is it the FBI is sitting on this?
To protect their own. Okay. Even if you say that that is okay. Which I don't.
Hang on just a second. Should one person, is that one person going to be able to use any of this, because that one person could say, you know what, we're going to release this on you.
This is so incredibly dangerous. It is exactly the kind of stuff that Stalin would have loved.
It's exactly the reason why, everybody hates Jay Edgar Hoover. And thought sway Edgar Hoover was a nightmare.
This one cash of information has probably more damaging things than Hoover had collected over 50 years.
I don't know.
I think we should stop talking about who is on this list. Where it gives us really nothing.
And start talking about what -- why is the FBI not releasing everything?
Remember, this is the same FBI, that had the laptop of Hunter Biden for two years.
Before you had even heard of it.
They helped that. They, quote, investigated that. Yeah. Yeah. And what -- what happened there?
Were any favors done for anybody? What happened there, exactly?
STU: If you think about that, we had that hypothetical conversation. What would have happened to the Hunter Biden laptop. If there wasn't a copy left at this computer store, right?
Let's just say, they got into the FBI's hands. And they -- the guy at the Apple store didn't keep a copy.
Right? He just gave it to the FBI. What would have happened? We never would have known that information, right?
And we know, that this Epstein thing is the story. That's what would have happened to it. There would have been a rumor about what was in there. And we would have never known --
GLENN: No. No. No. Can we the barbecue to the ABC anchor, that was doing I think Saturday morning. Good Morning America or something.
And they brought up Epstein in a break. Their mics were opened. They taped it. Listen.
VOICE: I've had this interview with Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air. First of all, I was told, who is Jeffrey Epstein? Nobody knows who this is. This is a student story.
Then the palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew, and threatened us a million different ways.
We were so afraid we wouldn't be able to interview Kate and Will, that we -- that also quashed the story.
And then Alan Dershowitz was also implicated.
She told me. She had pictures. She had everything. She was hiding in (?) talk to us.
And it was unbelievable what we had -- Clinton. We have everything.
I tried for three years to get it on, to no avail.
And now it's all coming out. And it's like these new Revelations.
And I've freaking had it. (?) because I'm just like, oh, my God.
We -- what we had was unreal. Other women backing it up.
The attorney, three years ago, saying. There will come a day, where we will realize that Jeffrey Epstein was the most prolific pedophile the world has ever known. Had it all (?)
GLENN: And we still don't have that report.
STU: That is unbelievable. Y why is ABC still suppressing (?) all of this?
STU: Yeah. I don't know. I will say, you know, on the Alan Dershowitz front. She came out and said, maybe it was Alan Dershowitz years later. Because he sued. And it's important to note that all of his accusations did not seem to prove out.
Certainly, the Dershowitz one fell apart completely by her own word.
GLENN: I absolutely believe it about Bill Clinton. But that'sius because I think I know who Bill Clinton is.
And it sounds like Bill Clinton. However, I wouldn't say, Bill Clinton needs to be rounded up as a pedophile. I wouldn't say that. He needs his day in court.
STU: No. Look, it's unfair in a way.
Again, I kind of agree with your take on what actually happened. But he should have -- we should have the evidence. So that we can figure out whether these things occurred or not.
GLENN: And no one deserves silence. No one.
Because of their position, deserves to have all of this boarded up.
Okay. He's a former president.
But Cincinnatus. You're a farmer. You if to serve. You come back. You're a farmer.
Why does he get special access?
I can understand, while you're in office. Maybe you don't do things.
Because it's just a distraction of the pregnancy. It's a weapon.
Ideas he get special protection in.
