It should come as a shock to no one that Trump’s circle is full of crooks, liars and thieves. Another common trend? Covered-up sex crimes. Making fresh rounds today, per the Miami Herald, Trump’s secretary of labor, Alexander Acosta, made dirty deals in 2007 while he was Miami’s top federal prosecutor. The deal was an attempt at keeping Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes mostly concealed. And you should be concerned because Acosta is one of the rumored candidates to be the next attorney general, replacing Jeff Sessions.
Here is a video segment from early 2017, prior to Acosta becoming the secretary of labor:
Now, the details are out and the depths of the disgusting details know no limits.
Epstein, a well-connected multimillionaire and friend to Donald Trump, only had to serve 13 months in a county jail after pleading guilty to prostitution-related charges, after a deal was struck with then-prosecutor Acosta. Other connections to Epstein include former president Bill Clinton.
The details are ghastly- Acosta essentially worked as the mastermind to keep secret a sex-ring of underage girls… efforts that were ongoing by the FBI. The overall report exceeded 50 pages, containing details about sex parties with these children in Manhattan, New Mexico and the Caribbean.
Without the help of Acosta’s concealment, Epstein would have likely ended up in federal prison for life. The defense lawyer, Jay Lefkowitz, was a previous colleague to Acosta. Per Raw Story:
‘Lefkowitz and Acosta reached the agreement over a breakfast meeting in October 2007 at the Marriott in West Palm Beach, rather than the prosecutor’s Miami offices, that allowed Epstein and four accomplices to receive immunity from all federal charges in exchange for guilty pleas to state charges.’
Not only was Epstein let off the hook, but so were any potential co-conspirators whom may have taken part in underage sex crimes, which happened at Epstein’s homes and on his plane, the “Lolita Express.”
Despite an agreement to not reveal Epstein’s victims at the time, some of his victims are coming forward with their experiences:
‘I don’t think anyone has been told the truth about what Jeffrey Epstein did. He ruined my life and a lot of girls’ lives. People need to know what he did and why he wasn’t prosecuted so it never happens again.’
Based on his criminal past in helping cover-up Epstein’s sick hobby, who know what other disgusting things Alexander Acosta could be accountable for burying. Along with Trump’s other criminals within the administration, Acosta will surely make a welcoming addition.
