Alex Acosta Just Threw Jeffrey Epstein Under The Bus, As White House Distances Itself

Alex Acosta is not only endorsing federal law enforcement pursuing Jeffrey Epstein for “horrific crimes,” he is ignoring his own law-breaking at the time of Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement in 2008. Acosta was then a U.S. Attorney in Florida and he broke the law by not informing the victims of the non-prosecution agreement, thereby depriving them of their legal right to object. This is the salient fact in people ranging from Nancy Pelosi to Fox News anchors asking Acosta to resign — and he’s just shining it on, like it doesn’t exist. The crimes committed by Epstein are horrific, and I am pleased that NY prosecutors are moving forward with a case based on new evidence. — Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019 Now that new evidence and additional testimony is available, the NY prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice. — Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019 Meanwhile, Hatch Act violator Kellyanne Conway is defending her fellow law breaker, Acosta, on Fox News, saying what a great labor secretary he’s been and being critical of those who would dare to confront Acosta on his record, saying it’s all so long ago. Plus, she states that Trump doesn’t talk to Epstein anymore, so that makes it all okay, I guess. The White House wants nothing to do with this, plain and simple. .@realDonaldTrump says he feels badly for @SecretaryAcosta — Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) July 9, 2019 Pres Trump in Oval Office said he knew Jeffrey Epstein but broke with him years ago. He said Secretary Acosta has done a good job at Labor and that he would take a look at his involvement in the Epstein case. Trump also stressed it was many years ago. All per pool. — Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) July 9, 2019 .@realDonaldTrump says a lot of people were involved in the decision about Epstein a long time ago, but will look at it very carefully, per @robertarampton. Trump says Epstein was a fixture in Palm Beach and he knew him, but they had a falling out 15 years ago. Says not a fan. — Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) July 9, 2019 What’s intriguing about Trump saying he’s not a fan of Epstein’s — anymore, he clearly was at one time — is that Epstein is now free to pull any dirt he has on Trump out of the closet with impunity. If he’s not going to get any help from Trump, why would he protect him? It will be interesting to watch where this goes.
