Justice Department concludes investigation into Epstein’s questionable plea deal, leaves Alexander Acosta to fend for itself

The Justice Department held a meeting with the victims of Jeffrey Epstein today to give them a first look at an investigative report into the financier’s 2007 secret plea deal. A victim’s lawyer told the Daily Beast that the federal government determined that federal prosecutors in Miami did not violate any laws or policies when they refused to prosecute Epstein.

About 30 victims and their lawyers met at the FBI office in Miramar, Fla., For a three-hour briefing on the DOJ’s investigation into the controversial no-prosecution agreement that protected Epstein’s accomplices from a federal indictment in Florida.

Jack Scarola, an attorney for Epstein victims, told The Daily Beast that the DOJ’s Professional Liability Office investigated five federal prosecutors as part of the investigation and found that none of them violated the departmental law or regulation or policy. The only official named, however, was former US attorney Alex Acosta.

The 300-page report – which resulted from 60 interviews, of which only five were sworn – will be handed to two US senators.
