“We still fight for … justice while our own justice system takes the easy way out.”
Survivors of Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking ring are outraged by a new government report that says former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta only “exercised poor judgment” when he authorized the financier’s secret, lenient plea deal 13 years ago.
Last week, the FBI met with victims and their lawyers for a first look at the Department of Justice report, which found that federal prosecutors in Florida didn’t commit “professional misconduct” when they declined to prosecute Epstein—or when they failed to notify victims before or after negotiating a deal with his lawyers.
A copy of the 350-page report obtained by The Daily Beast reveals the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility also found Acosta didn’t violate any policies by granting immunity to Epstein’s unnamed “potential co-conspirators.”
