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.
“@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.
