Well, that didn’t take long. After yesterday’s catastrophic news conference, where then-Labor Secretary Alex Acosta dug his hole deeper and deeper over his handling of the Jeffrey Epstein case in 2008, Acosta has resigned. The Guardian:
Speaking next to Alexander Acosta, Donald Trump said Acosta was a “great labor secretary not a good one,” according to the White House pool.
Trump also said he did a “very good job.”
He said Acosta explained his decision about Epstein in an hour-long press conference this week.
Details are sparse. As the story develops, we will update.
