Sex trafficking was a crime in 2007. Rape was a crime in 2007. F***ing kids was a crime in 2007. What is #Acosta talking about?

Acosta suggested that what was a good deal at time was being looked at differently today, but also said that “facts are being overlooked.”

“Times have changed, and coverage of this case has certainly changed, ” Acosta said.

Acosta said that the deal he reached as Miami’s top federal prosecutor guaranteed that Epstein would do jail time on a state charge, be forced to register as a sex offender, and offered the financier’s victims a chance to obtain money damages.

“There was value to getting a guilty plea and having him register,” Acosta said. “The world needed to be on notice that he was a sexual predator.”

The facts that are being overlooked are these:

“Simply put, the Palm Beach state attorney’s office was ready to let Epstein walk free, no jail time,”

Acosta seemed to be suggesting that prior to the "Me Too" movement it would have been pointless to go all out to prove this sort of sex crime because the victims would not be believed. 

2007 was not 1907.

The question is does that press conference save him?

Isn't the DOJ now reviewing that decision?  I'll leave it there until there is a public dissemination of the facts that we just don't have access to right now.

That they are. 

I'll leave it there

Why?  We have a monster sexual predator to discuss, yet we seem to be fixated on the deal Acosta arranged long ago. Have you thought about that?

Acosta is terrible.  The sooner he's gone, the better.

If the Dems are so upset with this, why didn't the Obama DOJ pursue this during Obama's 8 years?

Why would they?  This has absolutely nothing to do with the Obama administration

you leftists are complaining about Epstein being free these past 10 years and that the DOJ should investigate.  

That brings a logical question why no one in the Obama DOJ cared about this?  

We know the answer- Epstein was a major donor to liberal Democrats
