‘Poor Judgement’: DOJ Finds No ‘Misconduct’ In Prosecutor’s Decision To Scrap Investigation Into Epstein’s Child Sex Trafficking


A Department of Justice report released Thursday found “poor judgment” but no “misconduct” in former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta’s decision to scrap an investigation into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking. The report suggests that Acosta’s actions “created the misimpression” that the DOJ sought to “silence the victims” and that Acosta “failed to ensure that victims were treated with forthrightness and dignity.” The DOJ “concludes that the subjects did not commit professional misconduct with respect to the development, negotiation, and approval of the [non-prosecution agreement],” the report said.

The Department of Justice found “poor judgement” but no “misconduct” in former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta’s decision to scrap an investigation into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking, according to a report released Thursday.

The NPA was “an important proceeding that resolved the federal investigation,” according to the report.
