Nancy Pelosi calls for Labor Secretary Alex Acosta to resign amid new Epstein charges

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday called for Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s resignation after the details of the deal he struck as a U.S. attorney with Jeffrey Epstein resurfaced after the financier’s latest arrest.

Mrs. Pelosi said Mr. Acosta made an “unconscionable” deal with Mr. Epstein and alleged that President Trump was aware of this deal when he brought him into his administration.

“@SecretaryAcosta must step down. As US Attorney, he engaged in an unconscionable agreement w/ Jeffrey Epstein kept secret from courageous, young victims preventing them from seeking justice. This was known by [Mr. Trump] when he appointed him to the cabinet. #AcostaResign,” she tweeted.
