An investigation by the Department of Justice into federal prosecutors involved in the 2008 Jeffrey Epstein case is wrapped up with no charges.

The investigation focused on possible misconduct of government attorneys like Alexander Acosta who negotiated a plea deal that gave Epstein and potential conspirators immunity from federal charges.

According to the DOJ, the investigation found that prosecutors exhibited poor judgement but did not break any laws.

“Letting a well-connected billionaire get away with child rape and international sex trafficking isn’t ‘poor judgment’ – it is a disgusting failure,” Sen. Ben Sasse said in a statement. “Americans ought to be enraged. Jeffrey Epstein should be rotting behind bars today, but the Justice Department failed Epstein’s victims at every turn. The DOJ’s crooked deal with Epstein effectively shut down investigations into his child sex trafficking ring and protected his co-conspirators in other states. Justice has not been served.”

Things to keep in mind:

Attorney General William Barr’s father, Donald Barr, gave Jeffrey Epstein his first job.

Acosta told a White House official that the plea deal was forced on him by higher ups because Epstein was “intelligence.”

A former Mossad agent claims that Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell work for Israel.

In 2019, a judge ruled that Acosta did break the law with the Epstein deal.
