Acosta to take questions on his handling of Epstein case

Source: AP

WASHINGTON Labor Secretary Alex Acosta plans to make a statement Wednesday regarding his handling of a sex trafficking case involving now-jailed billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The Labor Department said Acosta will "make a statement and answer questions" from reporters at 2:30 p.m.

Acosta, a former federal prosecutor in south Florida, is under fire for his role in a secret 2008 plea deal that let Epstein avoid federal prosecution after allegations he molested teenage girls.

Epstein pleaded not guilty on Monday to new child sex-trafficking charges and could face up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

5. He probably will not take any questions and if he does decide to you can bet he

will only answer the softball ones and dodge any hard ones like "Did you know you were breaking the law when you made the deal?".

2. Acosta is going to be eaten alive...which serves him right. Perhaps one of the molested girls ...

will be in the audience too. He's going to do a typical rump trick, answer his 'questions' (no one asked his 'question' but he'll answer it anyways) and leave, without any question or answer session.

6. Just as an observation

where was the judge in all of this? deals made by the prosecutor have to be signed off by the judge.

8. Mick Mulvaney may be using the scandal as a way to get Acosta out of the Trump administration.

9. How was Trump involved in this? or When are you resigning?

Dems should ask some questions that make him very uncomfortable.
