PEDOGATE: Alex Acosta’s Nomination for Labor Secretary Must Be Rejected
State of the Nation
The former U.S. Attorney offered an unprecedented “sweetheart plea deal” to serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein
If Alexander Acosta is remembered for one thing throughout his entire law career, it will be his serious mishandling of the child sex case of West Palm Beach billionaire and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
As U.S. Attorney, Acosta negotiated an unprecedented plea agreement for Jeffrey Epstein in what is now known as one of the most grotesque miscarriages of justice in Florida history. There are attorneys throughout the state who are still seriously questioning (and extremely angry about the trampling of the rule of law) the final disposition of this deliberately bungled case. Some of those attorneys are actually litigating it on behalf of their aggrieved female clients. The details are explained in the article below:
The essence of the various allegations, which essentially assert prosecutorial misconduct without saying it, revolve around a number of extreme irregularities by Acosta in the process of prosecuting Epstein. However, the most egregious departures from the most basic rules of law concern two issues.
First, that Jeffrey Epstein was afforded the opportunity to cop a plea that had absolutely no relationship to the seriousness of the multiple underage sex crimes which he pled guilty to.
Epstein, then 55 and defended by an all-star legal team, pleaded guilty to a state charge of soliciting minors for prostitution. He registered as a sex offender in Florida and agreed to pay damages to 40 female victims ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old. As part of the plea agreement negotiated by Acosta’s office, Epstein wouldn’t be charged in federal court — even though the feds had drawn up a proposed 53-page indictment that carried potential punishment ranging from a mandatory 10 years in prison up to a life sentence.
Secondly, that the victims themselves — and there were at least 40 girls involved — had no knowledge whatsoever of the “sweetheart plea deal” that was made with defendant Epstein by prosecutor Acosta.
“The Government and Epstein conspired to conceal the NPA (non-prosecution agreement) from the victims to prevent them from joining any objection, and to avoid the firestorm of controversy that would have arisen if it had become known that the Government was immunizing a politically-connected billionaire and all of his conspiracies from the prosecutions of hundreds of federal crimes against minor girls,” the plaintiff’s attorneys wrote in a recent filing.
Pedogate in high places
There appears to be one reason — above all others — as to why this case was handled in a manner that defies the applicable federal statutes, state laws and relevant legal precedents. That reason concerns the far-reaching ramifications of Epstein’s “black book” which was kept by his butler Alfredo Rodriguez. The many names in that “black book” read like a list of the world’s rich and famous, powerful and well-connected. The following names are just a few that are listed:
Prince Andrew, Duke of York
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman
Edward de Rothschild
Evelyn de Rothschild
What makes the Jeffrey Epstein affair so very concerning is that it brings into sharp relief the two radically systems of criminal justice that operate 24/7 throughout America: one for the rich and powerful; and one for the poor and those who have relatively ‘little standing’ in society.
Especially where it concerns crimes of pedophilia and pederasty, the ruling class seems to have a pass to do whatever they damn well please. The plea deal negotiated by Alex Acosta is a perfect example of such a travesty of justice. That the administrators of this two-tier justice system continue to operate with apparent impunity, in spite of the extraordinary public scrutiny, ought to give reason to really pause on this one.
Alex Acosta is unfit to be Secretary of Labor
After his stint as U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Florida, Acosta became the second dean of the Florida International University College of Law in Miami. It ought to be pointed out that he had previously functioned as the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice and also served as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Rights Division. Civil rights?! Who, pray tell, neglected to protect the civil rights of the 40 plus sexually abused underaged girls enslaved by Epstein’s criminal underage sex syndicate?
If confirmed by the Senate committee as U.S. Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta will be the Trump Administration’s senior officer overseeing the nation’s work force, corporate labor practices and labor law enforcement. In this role he will be concerned with the maltreatment of seasonal migrants, plight of working illegal aliens and especially the rampant child slavery that has seeped into Corporate America. Human trafficking for purposes of acquiring cheap corporate labor has become a major responsibility for the labor secretary.
There are many other issues which concern those workers who have no real voice in matters of employment and/or are powerless in the workplace, which fall under the purview of Labor. Hence, we trust that the upcoming confirmation hearing will see the committee’s duties executed in the most judicious manner in view of Acosta’s dubious record.
At the risk of sounding redundant, in light of the reckless misconduct concerning the Jeffrey Epstein case, the scales of justice have fallen decisively against the confirmation of Alex Acosta. It should be pointed out that neither Mr. Acosta nor his staff ever provided a single explanation for his unjustifiable leniency toward Mr. Epstein.
“Despite the fact that this case has been in litigation for more than seven years … the government does not write even a single sentence explaining why it entered into [a non-prosecution agreement] with a sex offender who had committed hundreds of federal sex offenses against young girls,” the lawyers wrote.(Source: Feds deceived us about billionaire sex offender’s ‘sweetheart deal,’ teen victims say)
The real $64,000 question here is: Why did President Trump even make such a totally radioactive nomination? Not only do both he and Epstein live in West Palm Beach, FL, Epstein has been to Trump’s gala events. As determined to also drain the nasty Florida swamp as the POTUS has expressed, perhaps he has purposefully engineered the upcoming confirmation hearing in such a way that Congress will be forced to confront the Jeffrey Epstein legal scandal, once and for all. There is simply no other Pizzagate event that has such HUGE potential to blow Pedogate wide open. Surely, Trump knows that the “sweetheart plea deal” that Epstein inexplicably received from U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta is enough to bring the whole Pedogate scheme crashing down.
Both the Trump transition team, and now the Administration, have repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to float the names of notorious political operatives who are downright dangerous were they to be prominently configured in the president’s cabinet. However, none of those bad actors has gotten even close to a full-blown Senate confirmation hearing. That’s exactly where the Alex Acosta appointment is at this very moment.
Particularly in view of the Pizzagate scandal in Washington, D.C., as well as the much larger Pedogate global crime spree, it’s imperative that the POTUS reserve any and all appointments for individuals who are unimpeachable in their previous professional conduct. Likewise, they should be completely beyond reproach where it concerns their personal business and private life.
As revelations about both Pizzagate and Pedogate continue to produce such shocking disclosures about systematic child trafficking, child sexual abuse, child pornography, child snuff films production, child organ, tissue and blood harvesting, etc., it’s never been so critical for every organ of the U.S. Federal Government to root out those elected officials and appointees who have abetted this flagrantly criminal behavior, wittingly or unwittingly.
Perhaps the worst repercussion of such a disastrous Labor appointment is that the Trump Administration will have effectively swallowed a Pedogate poison pill. In so doing they will be rendered impotent in prosecuting what is surely the most powerful crime syndicate in the USA—the Pizzagate perpetrators who have always ruled inside the Beltway. Consequently, this pervasive and profound social ill of child exploitation will continue unabated as it eludes the necessary medicine that only strict and unwavering law enforcement can bring to bear.
