Jeffrey Epstein: prosecutors accuse financier of witness tampering

Trump due in Cleveland, Acosta in trouble: Darcy cartoon

Epstein's conduct has come into sharper focus since he was arrested and charged on Monday with sex trafficking underage girls.

Acosta said his resignation would be effective in seven days. The investment bankers have paid for a total of $ 350,000 (about 310,000 Euro), two persons against him would have statements, the American media reported on Friday, citing the NY district attorney's office. After dropping the third iteration of her lawsuit following Trump's election, the left-leaning Vox.com described it as "the end of an incredibly odd case that featured an anonymous plaintiff who had refused nearly all requests for interviews, two anonymous corroborating witnesses whom no one in the press had spoken to, and a couple of seriously shady characters - with an anti-Trump agenda and a penchant for drama - who had aggressively shopped the story around to media outlets for over a year".

Prosecutors said evidence against Epstein has grown since his arrest Saturday after several additional women identified themselves to the government as victims and dozens of individuals called prosecutors to convey information about Epstein and his crimes.

"My point here today is we have an awesome economy, and the focus needs to be on the economy", he said. "I said to Alex, 'You don't have to do this'". Acosta had been asked. The Friday announcement was seen as "a victory" by those still angered Acosta's handling of a 2008 sex crimes case involving wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Acosta came under fire this week for his role as USA attorney for Florida in securing a plea deal for Epstein that resulted in an 18-month sentence - he served just 13 months. They say he is protected by a 12-year-old non-prosecution deal with federal authorities.

The 2008 non-prosecution agreement allowed Epstein to plead guilty to state charges of soliciting a minor for prostitution instead of facing federal charges.

Federal prosecutors in NY have indicted him on sex trafficking charges that carry a possible prison term of up to 45 years.

In a 2002 profile in New York Magazine, Mr Trump referred to Epstein as a "terrific guy". "Today's world treats victims very, very differently".

Given that background, UltraViolet's Thomas said, "Congress should open a full investigation into President Trump, who was directly implicated as an enabler of Epstein, and is self-confessed serial sexual predator with almost two dozen accusations against him". Members of the police who worked on the case had told The Miami Herald in the paper's ongoing investigation that Krischer pressured them to reduce their case against Epstein to a misdemeanor or to just drop it.

Seven months after James Mattis resigned as defence secretary, for example, there has yet to be confirmation hearings after Patrick Shanahan pulled out of the running. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. He is accused of wiring $350,000 previous year to two associates.

The high rate of turnover also extends to the White House, where 76% of those given the title of "assistant to the president" in Trump's first year had left by the beginning of July 2019, according to Martha Joynt Kumar, director of the White House Transition Project. He ascended to the role after Andrew Puzder, the original pick and former head of Carl's Jr. Despite his claim to reporters that he was "not here to send any signal to the president", the hour-long press conference seemed to essentially be a chance for him to argue publicly why Trump shouldn't make him resign.

"It is the job of the Labor Department to enforce laws that protect all workers", the union said in a statement.
