Alex Acosta Resigns as Secretary of Labor in Shadow of Epstein Case

On the heels of a press conference where he defended his prosecution of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Alexander Acosta stepped down Friday as President Trump’s secretary of labor.

The Department of Labor did not immediately respond to phone calls and emails seeking comment on the resignation letter in which Acosta told Trump he would leave his post one week from today.

“A cabinet position is a temporary trust,” Acosta wrote. “I must set aside a part of me that wants to continue my service with the thousands of talented professionals at the Department of Labor.”

Acosta’s role overseeing an agency that monitors human trafficking has been under scrutiny since a watershed investigation in the Miami Herald laid bare the secret plea deal that he struck with the politically powerful financier.
