US LABOUR SECRETARY Alex Acosta is under further scrutiny now that it has been revealed that he solely is responsible for Epstein's sweetheart deal. Krischer served as the State Attorney for Palm Beach County during the time Epstein was originally being sought by authorities. This is a far cry from Acosta just yesterday. Just yesterday, Acosta claimed on national television that Krischer's office failed to do their job and that he had no choice but to offer the shocking deal. According to Barry Krischer, Acosta avoided and ignored the fact that a 53-page indictment had actually been prepared against Epstein. Instead, Krischer claims that Acosta intervened and brokered his own deal and then claimed that Epstein would've walked free had he not did so.
