Facing Requires Resignation, Labor Secretary Acosta Defends Handling of Epstein Case (Latest News)

Latest News – Labor Secretary Alex Acosta command a press conference on Wednesday to defend himself amid an outcry over how he handled what some have characterized as a sweetheart plea deal for a sex-trafficking case involving now-jailed financier Jeffrey Epstein.

“We believe that we proceeded suitably,” Acosta told reporters at a press conference at Labor Department headquarters, where he retraced steps federal prosecutors took in the case a decade ago once he was U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

Acosta said state authorities had planned to pursue Epstein with charges that will have resulted in no jail time till his workplace intervened and ironed for more durable consequences.



“We did what we did as a result of we wished to check Epstein head to jail,” he said. “That was the main focus.” He added: “Facts are necessary and facts are being unmarked.”

High-ranking Democrats and 2020 presidential candidates are requesting for Acosta to step down or be discharged over his role in brokering a plea deal with Epstein quite a decade ago.

President Trump, Acosta’s current boss, is standing behind his labor secretary.  Acosta said he has a superb relationship with the President who needs him to remain in his position.
