@jknipebrown Th @EmilyMichote result: It led to the resignation of U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta and a new indictment of Epstein. And before he could face his victims, Epstein was found dead in his New York jail cell.
Epstein could have spent life in prison, but he only served a little more than a year in jail. Why? A secret deal was struck — an extraordinary plea arrangement — with help from future Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta.
Alex Acosta is Trump’s Secretary of Labor. He gave a child molester a sweetheart deal—and we’ve known this for a while. Why Democratic leadership hasn’t given Acosta more than a gentle shove is beyond me. They have another chance now with Epstein’s arrest.
A federal court ruled that a member of Trump's cabinet, Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, BROKE THE LAW TO DELIVER AN EGREGIOUSLY LENIENT SENTENCE TO A BILLIONAIRE CHILD SEX ABUSER How is Acosta still in office?
