There have been arguments this week about whether Jeffrey Epstein should be released on bail — is he a danger to the community? Would he commit other crimes if he’s released? Is he a flight risk?

Plus: a judge orders Roger Stone off social media, Michael Flynn is still cooperating, and some feedback on our emoluments discussion last week.
