LIVE VIDEO: Acosta Presser On Jeffrey Epstein Scandal

The Miami Herald reports:

U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta has called a Wednesday press conference to discuss the controversy around his handling of a federal sex trafficking case in South Florida against accused convicted sex offender and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Acosta, President Donald Trump’s labor secretary since April 2017, has been under intense pressure from Democrats and some Republicans to resign after Epstein was arrested over the weekend and charged in New York with conspiracy and sex trafficking of minors.
