Ken Starr confirms Alex Acosta took the HARD LINE with Epstein


Alex Acosta appears to be a victim of the leftist mob.Ken Starr told Laura Ingraham last night that Acosta is an honorable guy who obviously took one for the team.

The case of Alex Acosta’s handling of Jeffrey Epstein was re-litigated in the press this past week, twelve years after the fact. This case was not a federal case, it was strictly state, but he was brought in by the police who were disturbed by the fact that Epstein was getting off with a minor punishment.

Epstein’s attorneys included Ken Starr who appeared on The Ingraham Angle last night to talk about Acosta’s role in the disposition of the case.

Starr was in the room and he explained what took place in Epstein’s plea deal when the U.S. Attorney’s office got involved in the case.

Starr said as his attorney, along with two others, Jay Lefkowitz, and Alan Dershowitz, he argued with the attorney’s office that they had no role in what was a state case. There was no crossing of State lines, no trafficking, or other crime that would have put it in federal hands.

Acosta wouldn’t back off, he didn’t buy the argument, Starr said. All the pushback came from Alex Acosta. The feds wanted a tougher deal and more accountability. 

It was Alex Acosta and his office who ignored the federalism argument and “were playing tough and insisting on some conditions” in the deal.

That means Barry Kirscher is a liar and another effective Trump official has been ruined.

Acosta agreed to go along with a FILTHY intelligence operation set-up to compromise the rich and powerful. All those responsible should rot in prison!

It’s troubling how minimal the charges are and declining any superseding indictments. What we know at this point there seems little chance of succeeding. It’s concerning with the use of ” resolve globally” which might be applied to any other cases with any other girls. There’s no way to know how the courts will view that language.

As it says “set out on pages 1 and 2”, there are 5 bullets that are pretty inclusive and broad. Those bullets cover virtually all aspects of the case and I believe NY mentions the same years as the Agreement which further complicates the matter. If there’s any evidence that covers post 2007 then the Agreement would certainly not cover those.

The prosecutors of the SDNY states their jurisdiction is predicated upon the non-prosecution agreement’s use of “in this district”. There’s just one problem. The Agreement states:

“IT APPEARING that Epstein seeks to resolve globally his state and federal criminal liability and Epstein understands and acknowledges that, in exchange for the benefits by this agreement, he agrees to comply with its terms, including undertaking certain actions with the State Attorney’s Office”.

In essence, The Federal Government has waived their right to prosecute Epstein in the future. They “resolved globally” the charges against Epstein and thus, double-jeopardy applies. It also acknowledges the Federal role that prompted their involvement:

“knowingly and willfully conspiring with others known and unknown to commit an offense against the United States, that is, to use a facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce to knowingly persuade, induce, or entice minor females to engage in prostitution…”

“knowingly, in and affecting interstate commerce, recruiting, enticing, and obtaining by any means a person, knowing that the person had not attained the age of 18 years and would be caused to engage in a commercial sex act as defined…”

It is further compounded by:

“IT APPEARING, after an investigation of the offenses and Epstein’s background by both State and Federal law enforcement agencies, and after due consultation with the State’s Attorney’s Office, that the interests of the United States, the State of Florida, and the Defendant will be served by the following procedure…”

It may be that any conspirators may also be exempt from prosecution since that is part of the complaint:

“…no prosecution for the offenses set out on pages 1 and 2 of this Agreement, nor any other offenses that have been the subject of the joint investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Attorney’s Office, nor any offenses that arose from the Federal Grand Jury investigation will be instituted in this District, and the charges against Epstein if any, will be dismissed.”

The Agreement also names certain co-conspirators; Sarah Kellen, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff and Nadia Marcinkova but also says “including but not limited to..” It certainly appears this Agreement will allow everyone to go free.
