1. Serial child abusers can't operate alone. They need people to protect them.

Alex Acosta, who is currently Trump's Secretary of Labor, helped protect Jeffrey Epstein from the consequences of sexually abusing dozens (maybe hundreds) of teen girls

2. As U.S. Attorney in Miami, Acosta could have put Epstein away for life. Instead, he agreed not to prosecute Epstein in exchange for him pleading guilty to two prostitution counts.

Epstein's victims were not prostitutes. They were girls.

3. Epstein ended up serving 13 months. But most of that time wasn't even spent behind bars. He was allowed to spend 12 hours a day in a luxury office he set up on "work release." This was allowed even though sex offenders aren't eligible for work release

4. To give Epstein this sweetheart deal Acosta BROKE THE LAW, according to a federal judge. He agreed to not contact the victims about the plea deal even though it is required under the Crime Victims Rights Act.

Acosta has not explained why he did this. popular.info/p/protecting-s…
5. Should someone who broke the law to protect a serial pedophile be in charge of overseeing child trafficking laws?

That's the situation we find ourselves in with Acosta.

Trump has brushed it off, saying it happened "a long time ago."

6. Trump was friends with Epstein and joked about his sexual habits.

"I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side"

7. But more important than Acosta's illegal acts is the fact that Epstein is now a free man, living on a private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Girls are at risk.

He needs to finally be prosecuted, in Florida or elsewhere.
