Comment on Acosta's statement by the former State Attorney for Palm Beach:
"As the state attorney for Palm Beach County for 16 years [1993-2009], which included the entire period of the Epstein investigation, I can emphatically state that Mr. Acosta's recollection of this matter is completely wrong," Krischer began.
"Federal prosecutors do not take a back seat to state prosecutors. That's not how the system works in the real world."
After outlining his office's efforts to subpoena witnesses and take evidence to a grand jury, Krischer said Acosta entered into "secret negotiations" with Epstein's lawyers.
"Subsequently, the U.S. Attorney's Office produced a 53-page indictment that was abandoned after secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein's lawyers and Mr. Acosta.
The State Attorney's Office was not a party to those meetings or negotiations, and definitely had no part in the federal non-prosecution agreement and the unusual confidentiality arrangement that kept everything hidden from the victims,"
Krischer said. "No matter how my office resolved the state charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office always had the ability to file its own federal charges.
"If Mr. Acosta was truly concerned with the state's case and felt he had to rescue the matter, he would have moved forward with the 53-page indictment that his own office drafted."
Krischer concluded: "Instead, Mr. Acosta brokered a secret plea deal that resulted in a non-prosecution agreement in violation of the Crime Victims' Rights Act. Mr. Acosta's should not be allowed to rewrite history."
Somebody isnt telling the truth here. I'm no lawyer, but pretty sure everyone documents and files everything! truth should be pretty easy to discern here.
Also there are more than just the 2 of these people in each office. I'm sure we will hear from the others.
Acosta said some very matter of fact things at his presser.
he did NOT negotiate a secret deal
his career attorneys brokered the deal and he said the timeline was documented before acosta met for their meeting.
these facts ( or fake news should be easy to find out )
