Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigns

 

President Donald Trump announced that Labor Secretary Alex Acosta has resigned, a move that comes after furor over a plea deal with Jeffrey Epstein.

Acosta has been under renewed scrutiny over his previous role as the US attorney in Miami, during which he negotiated the 2008 plea deal with Epstein. Epstein, a well-connected multi-millionaire, avoided a federal trial at the time and served only 13 months in prison for state prostitution charges over his involvement with underage girls. A Miami Herald investigation published last November described the plea deal, negotiated by Acosta, as the "deal of a lifetime."

Acosta's resignation is effective on July 19. Trump said the labor secretary will be replaced on an acting basis by the current deputy secretary, Pat Pizzella. Acosta, standing next to Trump outside the White House before the President departed for a trip, said he resigned to remove himself as a distraction.
"I do not think it is right and fair to this administration's Labor Department to have Epstein as the focus rather than the incredible economy that we have today," Acosta said Friday. "And so I called the President this morning. I told him that I thought the right thing was to step aside."

    1. @Trumprules Clintondrools ….I know it’s impossible for you Trumpet blowers to understand this. But if Bill Clinton had spent a month on Epstein’s plane with a hundred ten yr olds that would have nothing to do with Acosta giving Epstein a sweetheart deal and victimizing the victims for a second time.

    2. @Captain Win and that’s why democrats promote desmond is amazing? They hate pedophilia? Is that also why democrats want pedophilia to be labelled a “sexual orientation, not a crime” ?

    3. @Captain Win I don’t know where you get your information. Probably Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson. But Democrats don’t hate the Clintons. They never have. Bill Clinton oversaw one of the best economic periods in the last 50yrs. Clinton also left a surplus in the budget which GW Bush pissed away and put us in trillions of debt. For your information. Clinton achieved a strong economy by raising taxes, not giving 1.5 trillion in tax cuts to the top 2%.

  1. So much winning, eh?

    Trump seems to have the Worst luck at picking or keeping staff. Why, it’s almost as though he isn’t a very stable genius, almost…

    1. Ver Coda ….. guess it business as usual….. bad gut instinct that set him up for numerous bankruptcies and now bankrupting America….
      The imbecile couldn’t find his way out of a brown paper bag…..

    1. @Muhammad was a pedophile caravan robber Christianity is a mental disease and utter scourge upon humanity.

    2. @SamoaVsEverybody_814 2.0 What will ALWAYS happen, when you discuss with a pedophile democrat?
      *(1)* You will be called a racist, whenever you disagree
      *(2)* If (1) doesn’t work, there is always *_The Bike Lock,_*

    3. @Muhammad was a pedophile caravan robber Christianity has an entire denomination in the Catholic Church dedicated to the rape of children’s mind, body, and souls. Nothing you can say about Islam will ever top that so STFU and have a seat pedo-lover.

    4. @My Friends no gods, no Kings, only man. Sorry dude you’re barking up the agnostic tree lol now we can have a debate on your ancient sheep herding beliefs or you can get back on topic? Sound good kiddo?

    1. @Florian Held Do you have any proof of that? except for your hurt feelings?

    2. @Patrick Chole If you want to know more about the doctrine of pedophilia within the democratic party and the left as a whole, look up:

  2. What I don’t get is he broke the law and nothing happens to these people. When is someone going to be held as accountable as anyone else

    1. Me too. Really how does this happen and no-one rioting. It’s a wow. We wouldn’t be having this in my good land. We’re not perfect but we’re not having nonsense from our leaders. They know ….we the people.

    2. You obviously have no clue how our Justice system works do you? If you are rich, powerful and white you’re most likely going to get away with murder, literally. I’ve seen it personally. Two of my high school friends were killed by a drunk driver in a head on collision 3 young men not even 18 died instantly and the 50 year old drunk driver was a millionaire, plus he was a local celebrity and got 5 years, reduced to 2 with good behavior. My friends died with no justice and that scum bag is living his life. Our Justice system favors the rich and powerful.

    3. Its ridiculous how Trump and most of friends and family simply dont get charged with anything. One law for the rich and one for the poor…

    1. Tim Long that’s all the GOP has…… tax cuts and the so called great economy……. Wallstreet isn’t the economy…..

    1. @sick tuna uneducated, sycophantic, and wrong. Go you, YouTube warrior. “Make the libs cry” you alpha beast.
