Miami Herald reporter Julie K. Brown, who helped bring about Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s resignation, told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that there was more news to come out about child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, (whom Acosta got a light sentence for, video below):
I’m surprised [Acosta’s resignation] happened this fast. But, you know, that press conference that he gave the other day didn’t do him any good. Practically everything that he said at that conference was either inaccurate or twisted in some ways to benefit him; to make him look good. In reality, there is nothing here that makes him look good. He dropped the ball on this case.
We had been preparing to do a fact-check story tomorrow that would essentially use documents to show everything he said was not true.
I know for a fact there’s journalists all over the world covering this story now — he [Epstein] had been recruiting in other countries. I’m sure there will be more information coming out not only about his operation, but there were a lot of employees and other people, big people who, if they weren’t involved in the operation, they knew about the operation.
It’s time for them to come clean on this. I know they were forced to sign nondisclosure agreements. but it is time they step up.
