“Acosta Scrapped 53-Page Epstein Indictment In 2008 “After Secret Negotiations”: Fmr State’s Attorney”, via Zerohedge…


Former Palm Beach County state’s attorney, Barry Krischer, says that Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s account of a 2008 plea arrangement his office cut with pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein is “completely wrong,” and that Acosta “should not be allowed to rewrite history,” according to a Wednesday statement by Krischer.

Earlier in the day Acosta held a press conference in which he vehemently defended the deal to serve just 13 months in county jail – saying that Krischer would have let Epstein walk otherwise.

“Simply put, the Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office was willing to let Epstein walk free. No jail time. Nothing,” said Acosta. “Prosecutors in my former office found this to be completely unacceptable, and we became involved.”

Not true says Krischer – who said that Acosta abandoned a 53-page federal indictment “after secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein’s lawyers and Mr. Acosta,” according to The Hill.

The Miami U.S. Attorney’s Office had prepared a federal indictment against Epstein, but it was never filed. Acosta has also faced criticism for failing to disclose the plea deal to Epstein’s victims, something he said would have jeopardized the agreement.

Krischer downplayed his office’s role in the eventual plea deal, and alleged the U.S. Attorney’s Office abandoned its federal indictment after “secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein’s lawyers and Mr. Acosta.”

If Mr. Acosta was truly concerned with the State’s case and felt he had to rescue the matter, he would have moved forward with the 53-page indictment that his own office drafted,” Krischer said. –The Hill

That said, Palm Beach police told the Miami Herald that they felt pressured by Krischer to downgrade Epstein’s case to a misdemeanor or to drop it entirely.

While Epstein has allegedly victimized up to 60 girls, many of them underage according to the Miami Herald, his sweetheart deal for just two counts of solocitation of prostitution (one with a minor), and included working from his West Palm Beach office for as much as 12 hours a day for up to six days a week. He was also required to register as a sex offender, and was given immunity from federal prosecution.

Acosta avoided mentioning Krischer by name on Wednesday, referring only to the Palm Beach County state’s attorney.

“Everything that the victims have gone through in these cases is horrific, and their response is entirely justified,” said Acosta. “At the same time, I think it’s important to stand up for the prosecutors of my former office and make clear that what they were trying to do was help these victims. They should not be portrayed as individuals that just didn’t care.”

The American Conservative’s take on it is that it is unlikely that Trump [bold]wasn’t[/bold] tainted.
Time will tell.

1) Epstein is already acknowledged as a protected deep state asset 2) Comey’s daughter is on the prosecution team 3) the venue 4) Trump called off an attack on Iran two weeks before this comes down 5) Epstein got a free pass on his first trial 6) The DNC is insistent on running an even weaker candidate than they did in 2016, which virtually guarantees “4 more years” 7) The first attempt, Russiagate, is dead in the water This is the real world, there are no handsome knights riding in on their white chargers to save us, and Cinderella didn’t… Read more »

The Florida State Attorney, Krischer is the one that set up the sweetheart deal with Epstein’s lawyer, Dershowitz, who himself was having sex with Epstein’s underage girls, as documented in the well documented book “Filthy Rich”. This is backed up by the Palm Beach police statenent. Krischer is try to pass blame to Acosta for what he himself did.
