The Department of Justice has opened an investigation into Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta's role in negotiating a controversial plea deal with a wealthy New York investor accused of molesting more than 100 underage girls in Palm Beach.

The probe is in response to a request by Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who was critical of the case following a series of stories in the Miami Herald. The Herald articles detailed how Acosta, then the U.S. attorney for Southern Florida, and other DOJ attorneys worked hand-in-hand with defense lawyers to cut a lenient plea deal with multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2008.

Epstein, 66, could have faced a possible life sentence for sex trafficking, but instead was secretly granted federal immunity, along with others who were part of the conspiracy, some of whom were named, others not.

Epstein was suspected by the FBI of running an international sex trafficking operation involving minors, and federal prosecutors had drafted a 53-page indictment that was shelved after Acosta signed off on a non-prosecution agreement in September 2007.

For months after the deal was executed, federal prosecutors kept Epstein's victims in the dark, and the FBI led some of them to believe the investigation was ongoing. Most of the girls, ages 13 to 16 at the time, found out about the plea bargain only after learning about it on television when Epstein was sentenced in June 2008.

Acosta agreed to seal the agreement and keep it from Epstein's victims so that the girls couldn't try to derail it before he was sentenced, the Herald found.

Epstein's agreement called for him to serve 18 months in the Palm Beach County jail and to register as a sex offender. But even in jail, Epstein received liberal work release privileges that required him to spend little time in a cell. Six days a week, he was picked up at the jail by his private driver and driven to an office in downtown West Palm Beach, where he spent up to 12 hours a day greeting friends, lawyers and several young women who were named by federal prosecutors as participants in his sex trafficking scheme.

Ultimately, he served 13 months on two prostitution charges and was released in 2009.

The list of Epstein's close friends includes a shit ton of the elite from both major parties and powerful circles. Nothing will come of this because too many power players were involved in "lolita" plane rides.

Under capitalism, people like Epstein are above the law.

The guy had a lot of friends.

Keep in mind these people had to be somewhat aware of his proclivities for underage girls, but money has a way of making even the most heinous behavior into "eccentric".
Folks like Clinton and Trump, and a bunch more, took rides on his plane where they brought along all the little girls.

I'm undecided on who's the worst criminal here, State Attorney Barry Krischer, Assistant State Attorney Lanna Belohlavek, Acosta, or Epstein. Along with the attorneys that smeared and attacked the witnesses and harassed the lead detective, they should all be trolled on a downrigger near the bottom of the Puerto Rico Trench, after "massaging" them all in the ass with a barbed wire wrapped baseball bat.

Pulitzer level journalism here by the Miami Herald, btw

He was allowed the work release program. His lawyers then formed a non profit company that "employed" and allowed him to "work" there instead of being in jail. That was a first. Black? White? It's not even close to what happens to others. This is a deal for the most connected, richest degenerate and he called out every favor and got this favor. Acosta was promised his current job for making this midnight deal. This was not a simple case of money buying favors either, he got this unique deal because many powerful people flew on his "Lolita" express and went to his depraved sex parties. Of course Bill Clinton did but so did Donald Trump. Trump and Epstein travelled in the same social circles in palm beach. Trump famously said they Epstein might be the only person that loves beautiful women more than him. Trump gave Acosta his job. That is the connection the congressional Democrats are trying to get the goods on. They also believe that trump may be compromised by Epstein because Epstein provided him with underage prostitutes. The lawsuit against trump by one of the women pled that. So I guess we shall see.

Laws are created to serve the privileged class, not for them to be subject to them.

Laws are not created for the privileged. They make them for the masses with the understanding that they will not apply to them. This is why the ultra rich favor anarchy. Law is a threat to their hidden lives. The poor can't see over the walls and behind the guard houses. A perfect example is when drunk Cheney shot his friend. It wasn't even reporter until the next day. No police, no charges. The guy was shot apologized to Cheney.

Actually, they are created to serve the weak and powerless. In a society without laws, the strong and powerful do as they please. Syria is probably the country closest to anarchy. Let's see now, are poor, oppressed Americans flooding into Syria so as to get a better shake or are empowered Syrian peasants fleeing Syria for the west?

My point above. That said, doubt that there are many millionaires/billionaires populating the ranks of antifa. If you are talking about the shit holes in Africa, Latin America or California, you'd be right. Not in normal America though.

Federal Judge says Acosta broke law when he gave Epstein a secret plea deal, because the victims weren't notified:
http://www.miamiherald.com/new...e226577419.html


These scumbags need to face federal charges and all involved need to be named publicly. But that's never going to happen because our system favors the wealthy and connected.

This is exactly why sexual assault victims remain silent.

Read the long articles in the herald when it came out a little while back. Trully some despicable shit and a gross miscarriage of justice. The spineless prosecuters, the do anything for a buck Ken Starr and Alan Dershowicz representing him and pulling the puppet strings of the prosecuters. I may not die rich, widely esteemed, or famous but I can at least look myself in the face in the mirror each morning. I hope these scumbags can't.

"Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein deposition: Epstein was asked if he socialized with Donald Trump. He responded with "yes."

Then he was asked if he had ever socialized with Trump in presence of females under age of 18? He plead the fifth."

Judge Marra, the federal judge who reopened this, is a truly good person with integrity. It's got to be sheer bad luck for Acosta that the case went back to Marra.

...According to numerous published reports, Epstein, 66, was said to be a key witness in the prosecution of two Bear Stearns hedge fund managers, Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin. Both men were charged with securities fraud after the collapse of a pair of hedge funds they oversaw - one of the events that prosecutors believed sparked the 2008 financial crisis.

Epstein knew a lot about Bear Stearns. He worked at the firm early in his career and even invested a chunk of his enormous net worth in the hedge funds under investigation. Meanwhile, the notion that Epstein agreed to cooperate on the federal investigation of Wall Street crimes provided at least some logic behind what many legal experts believe was a sweetheart deal for sex crimes involving minors - if, of course, it were true.

But a FOX Business investigation shows that Epstein did not provide any meaningful cooperation to obtain his relatively light sentence in the hedge fund case or likely any case tied to the financial crisis, according to numerous people with direct knowledge of the matter. In fact, Epstein's cooperation with prosecutors does not appear to extend beyond supplying state and federal investigators with information involving his own case, these people add.
This revelation - which has yet to be reported - is the product of interviews with a dozen people involved in the Epstein case, from former prosecutors to various lawyers involved in the matter, and people with direct ties to Epstein himself. It comes as the case - and the circumstances behind Epstein's sentencing agreement - continues to make national headlines with additional alleged new victims coming forward and the courts reviewing the propriety of the agreement he cut with prosecutors.

"It would have been a great thing if Epstein had helped prosecute (Cioffi and Tannin) or if he had cooperated in any investigation," Alan Dershowitz, one of Epstein's attorneys on the infamous case, told FOX Business. "We would have been touting that if he had [cooperated]. The idea that Epstein helped in any prosecution is news to me."

Dershowitz, a celebrity attorney and Harvard law professor, said he's no longer representing Epstein, but another member of the original legal team, Jack Goldberger, still is. Goldberger told FOX Business: "Mr. Epstein was never spoken to by any of the authorities on this subject. He was a very large investor. No more, no less."


FBN

I think he knew (and probably had evidence) of other powerful people that were putting their junk where it didn't belong and used this as leverage, but it looks like the dirty laundry may be about to be exposed.
