(CNN)During a week in which the nation's biggest news story is the arrest of the shady financier and pal of President Trump Jeffrey Epstein on charges of operating a sex trafficking ring in which he abused underage girls, (Epstein has pleaded not guilty), Trump is sending quite a message.

Let's recall, first, what Trump told New York magazine in 2002. "I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

Trump, too, enjoys a social life. At the same time Epstein's arrest was dominating headlines, the President invited Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, to a Treasury Department dinner, and sat him in a seat of honor, at the President's own table. Kraft was recently charged with soliciting a woman in connection with prostitution while visiting a Florida massage parlor. Kraft has pleaded not guilty.

Kraft's case is mild compared with what other Trump cronies have done. But with that dinner invitation on that particular night, Trump signaled loud and clear he doesn't mind being around an accused sex criminal.

Trump's labor secretary, Alex Acosta, is in trouble in Florida for his role in helping Epstein avoid accountability -- Acosta, then a prosecutor, gave Epstein a lenient plea deal that was kept secret from his victims. A federal judge found that Acosta and his team broke the law, but that hasn't meant any consequences for Acosta in his current job thus far.

These are just the latest in a string of shady characters -- accused predators, predator-enablers and misogynists -- embraced by the President. The dinner Kraft attended was a formal meeting with the Qatari Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, a 39-year-old leader with two wives who rules over a wealthy nation that is a human rights nightmare. Migrant workers in Qatar are treated like slaves, homosexuality there is punishable by prison or even death, and women are second-class citizens, having fewer rights than men in everything from citizenship to marriage, to child custody, to divorce and physical safety.

Here in the United States, Trump backed a candidate for United States Senate, Roy Moore, who was accused of sexually preying on teenage girls. Moore has denied these allegations. Andrew Puzder, who was the President's first choice for labor secretary, didn't take the job after allegations of domestic abuse leveled by his ex-wife in the 1980s -- and later withdrawn -- came to light. Puzder has denied the allegations.

White House aide Rob Porter resigned in disgrace after both of his ex-wives came forward to say he abused them "He threw me down on the bed and punched me in the face," one told The Intercept. Porter denied the allegations.

Steve Bannon, who ran Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, faced charges of misdemeanor domestic violence and battery against his wife in 1996. He denied these allegations and the charges were ultimately dismissed. The couple are now divorced. He was later elevated to a seat on Trump's National Security Council.

David Sorensen, a speechwriter and aide to Stephen Miller, was also accused of domestic abuse, including running his then-wife's foot over with a car and burning her with a cigarette, according to the Washington Post. He denies the accusations and was never charged.

Trump loves to brag about his law-and-order bona fides, sounding the alarm about allegedly dangerous immigrants in the United States. But certain men -- like him, a bunch of his friends, and their enablers -- are a category of accused criminals and miscreants he doesn't seem to mind.

Remember that Trump himself stands accused of a long list of sexual misdeeds, from barging into the dressing rooms of teenage beauty contestants to groping a woman on an airplane, to a credible accusation of rape made less than a month ago, to bragging about grabbing women by the genitals.

In this last case, Trump brushed off the countless rebukes by saying it was "locker room talk," before suggesting that the tape might be fake, according to The New York Times.

His own ex-wife accused him of raping her (though she later said she didn't mean "rape" in a legal sense). He denies all of these things.

And he has a socialized with Epstein in the past, though a lawyer for the Trump Organization denied the two had a social relationship.

The last few years have been a reckoning for powerful but sexually abusive men. Again and again, we ask how they managed to evade justice and do wrong for so long. Jeffrey Epstein is one of them. Another one sits in the Oval Office.

Acosta being sworn in as Labor Sec. Any resemblance to the "Shining" is strictly coincidental...

So, apologies in advance, but I want to do a quick little THREAD to explain my theory of what the Epstein story really is. I promise this isn't some crazy Pizzagate conspiracy about space lizards, just a neat little explanation that IMO perfectly fits the known facts (0/13):

(1/13) Let's take as our starting points two givens.

(A.) You are a committed, unrepentant pedophile
(B.) Because of your old job in private banking, you are very connected to lots of very, very wealthy people
We'll also assume a goal:
(Z.) You want to become very rich

(2/13) The obvious route is, well, obvious: you could just be a pimp, offering underage prostitute services to very rich people. This has two problems: you're very disposable (see: DC madam), and it's also not super lucrative. You can't charge millions of dollars up front.

(3/13) The second level though follows instantly: You don't need to charge up front, just get them to have underage sex, and then blackmail them afterwards for hush money. Better ROI, but you're still a liability, and producing and receiving big bribe money raises big questions.

(4/13) So, what to do? Well, the second idea has some merits. First, you need to recruit people in. Have lots of massive parties at your spacious home (check), invite top academics, artists, politicians to encourage people to come (check), and supply lots of young women (check)

(5/13) You don't even have to do anything, and most people invited might even be totally unaware of the real purpose of the parties! But, sooner or later, some billionaire will get handsy, she'll escort him to a room with a hidden camera, things happen. Morning after, you strike.

(6/13) You inform him she was really 15, but you offer him a nice, neat way to buy your silence: a large allocation to your hedge fund, which charges 2/20 (check). To ensure nobody else asks questions, you also take the extraordinary step of demanding power of attorney (check)

(7/13) The fund is offshore in a tax haven (check) and nobody will see the client list (check). Of course, you don't really know anything about investing, instead making up some nonsense about currency trading (check), and nobody on Wall Street has ever traded with you (check)

(8/13) The fund itself doesn't need investment personnel (check), only some back office people to process the wires (check). You don't want to money from non-pedophiles, or they'll notice you've just put it in a S&P 500 fund, so you reject all incoming inquiries (check)

(9/13) A $20 million wire from Billionaire X to you with no obvious reason will raise many questions, and the IRS will certainly want to know what you did to warrant it. A $5 million quarterly fee for managing $1 billion in assets? Nobody bats an eye.

(10/13) Because of this structure, you're extraordinarily secretive about client lists (check) because they aren't clients, they're pedophiles paying you bribes, and they also are very secretive, which is why no letters or return streams ever leak (check)

(11/13) Occasionally you may also try this trick on other people: important political figures, mayors, prosecutors, etc. They don't invest in the fund, but it's nice to have them in your pocket. Others (academics, artists, etc.) can just be bought with money as a PR smokescreen.

(12/13) And, of course, the scam can be kept going as long as people are willing to pay, which is forever. If you're ever caught, just lean on some of your other friends in government to lean on the prosecutor to get you a sweetheart deal. There's almost zero risk.

(13/13) And the last piece of the puzzle is the evidence. You'd want it somewhere remote, but accessible: a place the US can't touch but you have an excuse to visit all the time to update. Remember that offshore fund?

I bet there's a *very* interesting safe deposit box there.
Two small points of clarification:

1. This scheme works just as well if the billionaires are in on it from the getgo as a way to buy sex; I assumed that was obvious but I guess not.
2. Thereís no need to invoke the Mafia/Russia/Mossad/CIA/etc, thatís just needlessly overfitting.
