Multi-millionaire Jeffrey Epstein charged with sex trafficking

William Barr

Acosta also previously worked for the firm.

Labour Secretary Alex Acosta says that when he was a federal prosecutor in Florida, his office acted appropriately when it came to the secret plea deal offered to hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein a decade ago in a molestation case. The White House has not responded to repeated questions about whether there ever was such an investigation, and, if there was, what it found.

The women said they hoped Epstein this time stays behind bars permanently. Former President Bill Clinton praised his intellect and philanthropic efforts and was a frequent flyer aboard his private jet. SDNY is an acronym for the Southern District of NY, where the USA attorney's office brought the current charges.

The federal 2007 non-prosecution agreement in Florida, where Acosta was serving as a USA attorney, allowed Epstein to reach a plea deal in 2008 on a lesser prostitution offence and serve 13 months in a county jail, with leave during the day. It is even said that he likes attractive women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. Those who voted to confirm Acosta in 2017 said they are concerned but have not demanded his resignation, POLITICO reported. And finally, what is completely unprecedented and that I've never seen is this very broad agreement that they would not prosecute any of Epstein's co-conspirators.

"This despicable unjust plea deal that was arranged by Acosta showed no respect for the suffering of the victims and credible accounts of human trafficking and was a clear abuse of power for political gain", an open letter to Mr Trump, signed by 19 Democratic members of Congress, read. Acosta has denied any wrongdoing.

An indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan accuses the 66-year-old of arranging for girls as young as 14 to perform nude "massages" and other sex acts and paying some girls to recruit others, from at least 2002 to 2005. He says Acosta's office gave Epstein the deal of the millennium.

The indictment of multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein on Monday brought forth lurid details about his alleged sex trafficking of underage girls, and vivid descriptions of his extravagant lifestyle.

"With the evidence available more than a decade ago, federal prosecutors insisted that Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender and put the world on notice that he was a sexual predator", he tweeted.

Epstein's attorneys alleged in court that the deal, which covered the same time period as the NY charges, was made in consultation with senior Justice Department officials - and was therefore understood by Epstein and his lawyers at the time to apply beyond the Florida district.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor that "it is now impossible for anyone to have confidence in Secretary Acosta's ability to lead the Department of Labor".

"If he refuses to resign, President Trump should fire him", Schumer added. Federal prosecutors have said he is a flight risk because of his wealth and global ties. "This is not acceptable".

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., also urged Acosta to resign.

"Alex Acosta should resign as Labor Secretary", Sen.

Messages were left with Epstein's attorneys seeking comment. But you're talking about a long time ago, and it was a decision made, I think, not by him but by a lot of people. "I wasn't a fan".

"I've known Jeff for 15 years".

"It is even said that he likes lovely women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side".
