Cyrus Vance, Jr., the Manhattan District Attorney pursuing possible racketeering charges against former President Donald Trump, could be a villain right out of central casting, with a notorious record…and an even more notorious father.

Vance is stepping down as Manhattan’s chief prosecutor, but if he secures an indictment against Trump it would cap off a career marked by liberal causes, wild accusations, and dark family ties.

Vance’s Office Defends Jeffrey Epstein

Vance became Manhattan DA in 2010, and within months found his office helping out a famous name.

Jeffrey Epstein.

The billionaire liberal has been convicted of child sex crimes – but Vance’s office was asking a New York judge to reduce the pedophile’s sentence.

Vance’s office claimed that since Epstein had only been convicted of raping one child, he didn’t deserve a sentence for someone convicted of multiple rapes, even though the sentence had been handed down on account of Epstein’s rabidly predatory behavior.

The stunned judge ruled against Vance’s office, writing “I have to tell you, I’m a little overwhelmed because I have never seen a prosecutor’s office do anything like this. I have done so many [sex offender registration hearings] much less troubling than this one where the [prosecutor] would never make a downward argument like this.”

Vance claims he had no knowledge of the bizarre case, but most people are skeptical the Manhattan DA’s own office would seek to reduce a sentence, in a well-publicized case, for a famous person, without the DA being involved.

Vance Dropped Sexual Assault Charges Against Harvey Weinstein – Drawing A FBI Probe

Vance’s generosity to liberal sex predators also extended to notorious rapist Harvey Weinstein.

It was Vance who intervened when Weinstein was accused of sexually assaulting a model, dropping the charges against the liberal celebrity and political donor.

“A lawyer hired by Weinstein at the time had given Vance a donation of $24,000 and another attorney made a $10,000 donation after the DA’s office decided not to arrest Weinstein,” The New York Daily News reported.

The corruption was so apparent the FBI began investigating Vance.

It would later be proven Weinstein was a serial rapist.

Vance Pursues Trump Campaign Chairman

But not everyone is the recipient of Vance’s efforts to reduce criminal sentences.  Vance famously pursued Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, indicting him on 16 different mortgage fraud charges.

A court threw out all 16, declaring that since Manafort was already charged with that crime in federal court, trying him in state court would be an obvious violation of the Constitution’s prohibition on “double jeopardy.”

It was Vance, not Manafort, who was flouting the law.

“As we have said from the time the District Attorney announced charges against Mr. Manafort, this is a case that should never have been brought because the dismissed indictment is a clear violation of New York law,” said Manafort attorney Todd Blanche.

Cyrus Vance, Jr’s Notorious Father, Cyrus Vance

For the Vances, assisting notorious figures and pursuing radical liberal causes is a family tradition.

Manhattan DA Vance is the son of Cyrus Vance, Jimmy Carter’s infamous Secretary of State.

Vance famously resigned the position in 1980, in protest of Carter’s efforts to free Americans held hostage by Iran.

An outspoken advocate of closer ties with Communist dictatorships, Vance demanded the United States cede to Soviet demands – despite being the United States’ own Secretary of State.

As Secretary of State, and a virtual Soviet agent, Vance attacked Americans who criticized the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and attempted to negotiate with Iran through the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization.

He resigned in protest when Carter sent in a military rescue team to free the Iranian hostages and Carter officials, not trusting Vance to not tip off Irans, did not inform him.

Let’s not forget Belosie and her wonderful nephew, Newsome. WHY do people keep electing these criminal politicians from criminal political families? They are just like any other crime family.

Biden has the money and he probably hid it into something else.
Biden is one of the largest pedophiles there is He hd an underground port which was under and near the Capitol building. What they found under there recently is so sick. Pelosi and Obama are involved.When people saw buses in back of the building at the same time of the Antifa terrorist riot. That is how they were removing dead not sure if any was alive. When I read they get that can’t think of the name that they drink the blood they sell it.
And all the aholes can think what to do is keep using President Trump as a distraction from their Crimes. They are chicken shit to go after the real criminals who are kidnapping and killing kids.
And to say President Trump is notorious and a notorious father is insane.
Go get the biggies. Biden should be exposed instead of being in the WH.
