US Labor Secretary Helped Billionaire Avoid Pedophile Ring Charges (VIDEOS)
Ahead of a trial slated for December 4 over a lawsuit filed against billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who is accused of enslaving dozens of underage girls for sex, a new report details US Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta’s role in covering up the full scale of Epstein’s crimes.
Epstein’s teen sex trafficking ring worked like a pyramid scheme, according to victims, who say they were paid to give massages to Epstein, paid extra for sex acts and paid even more to recruit more girls between the ages of 13 and 16 into the ring. The girls were also, at times, allegedly offered up to Epstein’s powerful friends.
“We had victims who didn’t know each other, never met each other and they all basically independently told the same story,” Michael Reiter told the Miami Herald. Reiter was police chief in Palm Beach, Florida — where Epstein resided — during the investigation. Two police officers also said that they were pressured by then-Palm Beach State Attorney Barry Krischer to discontinue their investigation or downgrade the case to a misdemeanor.
In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and served 13 months in prison following a plea agreement. His conviction followed a series of dismissals of other, similar lawsuits that same year.
“Our judgment in this case, based on the evidence known at the time, was that it was better to have a billionaire serve time in jail, register as a sex offender and pay his victims restitution than risk a trial with a reduced likelihood of success,” Acosta, then US attorney for Southern Florida — the top federal prosecutor in Miami — explained in a 2011 letter…..more here
Guess there weren't any secret sealed indictments for this billionaire
Not only would Epstein serve just 13 months in the county jail, but the deal — called a non-prosecution agreement — essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who took part in Epstein’s sex crimes, according to a Miami Herald examination of thousands of emails, court documents and FBI records.
The pact required Epstein to plead guilty to two prostitution charges in state court. Epstein and four of his accomplices named in the agreement received immunity from all federal criminal charges. But even more unusual, the deal included wording that granted immunity to “any potential co-conspirators’’ who were also involved in Epstein’s crimes. These accomplices or participants were not identified in the agreement, leaving it open to interpretation whether it possibly referred to other influential people who were having sex with underage girls at Epstein’s various homes or on his plane.
As part of the arrangement, Acosta agreed, despite a federal law to the contrary, that the deal would be kept from the victims. As a result, the non-prosecution agreement was sealed until after it was approved by the judge, thereby averting any chance that the girls — or anyone else — might show up in court and try to derail it.
This is the story of how Epstein, bolstered by unlimited funds and represented by a powerhouse legal team, was able to manipulate the criminal justice system, and how his accusers, still traumatized by their pasts, believe they were betrayed by the very prosecutors who pledged to protect them.

The Royal Family are being dragged back into the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile scandal, as a photo of the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, with an alleged ‘underage prostitute’ is listed as an exhibit in a new US court case.
Victims of the American billionaire sex offender, Epstein, are to tell a Florida courtroom their stories of sexual abuse, Tuesday.
One witness, who may be called to the stand at Palm Beach County Court, is Virginia Roberts who claims that was she was both forced to have sex with Epstein and that she was “loaned out” to perform sex acts on his friends.
Jeffrey Epstein has agreed to a financial settlement and issued an apology to Bradley Edwards, the attorney representing several of Epstein’s victims.
West Palm Beach, Florida – Jeffrey Epstein has apologized for filing a malicious lawsuit against attorney Bradley Edwards. The apology and a confidential financial settlement officially bring an end to the lawsuit which was peripheral to the larger fight to hold Jeffrey Epstein accountable for the dozens of young girls he molested. Edwards has been representing three female victims of Epstein for nearly a decade.
The settlement relates to an ongoing legal battle between Epstein and Edwards. In 2008, Edwards successfully sued Epstein on behalf of women who claimed he abused them. All of the women were teenagers at the time. Epstein would later counter sue claiming that Edwards was bringing Epstein to court as part of some type of Ponzi scheme. The suit would eventually be dropped, but Edwards returned the gesture by suing Epstein for defamation of character.
The following statement was released by Epstein via his lawyers:
While Mr. Edwards was representing clients against me, I filed a lawsuit against him in which I made allegations about him that the evidence conclusively proves were absolutely false. The truth as that his aggressive investigation and litigation style was highly effective and therefore troublesome for me. The lawsuit I filed was my unreasonable attempt to damage his business reputation and cause Mr. Edwards to stop pursuing cases against me. It did not work. Despite my best efforts, he continued to do an excellent job for his clients and, through his relentless pursuit, held me responsible. I am now admitting that I was wrong and that the things I said I to try to harm Mr. Edwards’s reputation as a trial lawyer were false. I sincerely apologize for the false and hurtful allegations I made and hope some forgiveness for my acknowledgement of wrongdoing.
During a press conference following the settlement announcement, Bradley Edwards and his counsel Jack Scarola stood in front of boxes of files related to the case against Epstein and pictures of Epstein’s vehicles, homes, and planes. “We thought it important, so you could see, what a decade’s worth of legal work looks like,” Scarola stated. “What has gone into the prosecution of this case in order to resist an army of legal superstars.”
Although the suit was not directly related to the crimes of Epstein, Edwards’ attorneys were expected to call some of Epstein’s victims as witnesses to corroborate the validity of the original claims against Jeffrey Epstein. However, during the press conference, Edwards noted that the court was wary of allowing the trial to turn into a battle over Epstein’s sexual crimes.
Edwards stated that the end of this lawsuit will now rightfully put the focus back on the women who have been the victims of Epstein’s sick behavior. Edwards also noted that the lawyers have found victims of Epstein around the United States and around the world.
Now that Epstein has apologized the focus will shift back to Edwards and Scarola’s efforts to have Jeffrey Epstein’s original Non-Prosecution Agreement – or “sweetheart deal” – overturned. If a federal judge does overturn the deal, Epstein could be liable for further lawsuits and trials.

The mainstream media’s sudden interest in the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein comes as a result of an in-depth investigation published by the Miami Herald. The Herald’s investigation was itself published just one week before Epstein’s latest civil trial is set to begin in Palm Beach, Florida. The investigation repeated what many in the independent media have been reporting for years: In 2008, Jeffrey Epstein was accused of participating in sexual acts with young girls by at least 40 women before he was given a sweetheart deal by the U.S. government which allowed him to avoid spending the rest of his life in bars. Some of the girls also accused Epstein and his high-profile associates of organizing sex parties where young girls would be raped and abused.
Epstein was offered a non-prosecution agreement which allowed him to plead guilty to the lesser charge of soliciting a minor for prostitution and soliciting prostitution. He was ordered to pay multi-million dollar settlements to victims and sentenced to 18 months in jail, of which he only served 13. Epstein was allowed to stay in the Palm Beach County Jail in his own private cell where he was allowed to leave the prison six days a week for “work release”. Epstein was forced to register as a sex offender for life, but with his money and his connections he doesn’t seem too bothered. He currently resides on his private island in the Virgin Islands.
