White House “Looking Into” Labor Sec. Alex Acosta After Bombshell Report On Plea Deal With Pedophile

The Associated Press reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday declined to say whether President Donald Trump still has confidence in Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, a day after a federal judge ruled the Justice Department broke the law while Acosta was a U.S. attorney.

A judge said Acosta — then the U.S. attorney in Miami — signed off on a plea deal with Jeffrey Epstein, the Palm Beach billionaire and serial sex abuser, without informing victims about what they were doing.

“My understanding is that it’s a very complicated case, something we’re certainly looking into,” Sanders said. The Florida-based U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra ruled Acosta and other officials did not confer with Epstein’s victims about the 2008 plea agreement.
