A judge rules that Alexander Acosta and other prosecutors violated U.S. law in 2008 by offering a plea deal that gave Jeffrey Epstein immunity from federal charges.
Despite this, an investigation by William Barr’s DOJ concludes in 2020 that, no, Acosta and other prosecutors showed no misconduct. (Barr’s father knew Epstein a long time ago).
According to Vicky Ward, Acosta told Trump Administration officials that he had no say in the matter because Epstein belonged to the Intelligence community.
