UPDATE: Alexander Acosta announced his resignation today:
U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta said on Friday he will resign his position amid fallout from the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking case.
Speaking to reporters, Acosta made the announcement while standing outside of the White House while and next to President Donald Trump.
On July 6, 2019, American financier, “philanthropist,” and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested (again). He is charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York.
The federal indictment was unsealed and shared with the public several days ago. To read it, click here: Jeffrey Epstein indictment
The indictment states that Epstein sexually exploited many “minor girls” between 2002 and 2005 in Florida and New York. Some of the girls were as young as 14 at the time of the alleged abuse.
“The source of his wealth—a money management firm in the U.S. Virgin Islands—generates no public records, nor has his client list ever been released.”
One known client, Leslie Wexner, billionaire founder of The Limited clothing chain, was widely believed to be his benefactor for years and the major source of his wealth: At one time, Epstein was listed as a trustee of The Wexner Foundation, and Wexner reportedly bought Epstein a $13 million New York apartment.
Epstein was forced to register as a sex offender in 2008 after receiving a lenient plea deal for allegedly paying girls for sexual massages. On Monday, a new indictment was unsealed charging him with molesting underage girls and sex trafficking.
Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was known as Virginia Roberts at the time, said in a 2014 lawsuit that while she saw Clinton on the island, she did not see him engage in sex, the New York Times reported in 2015. Her claim has not been corroborated.

This guy is a fraud and a loser. No college degree, no meaningful relationships. How did he get a job teaching at a college off the street. Only way to do that would be to lie. He has been a liar his whole life. His fortune was probably earned through some illegal scheme. Nobody in their right mind would give this loser their cash to invest unless they were presented with lies. Hope he spends the rest of his life in prison in solitary confinement.
The "Lolita Express"
In New Mexico, the attorney general said he has been in touch with the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York. Balderas' office has not said, however, how many accusers his office has interviewed and he has not elaborated on what they say took place at the ranch. In a 2015 court filing in Florida, a plaintiff in a lawsuit against Epstein said she had been abused at several locations, including the New Mexico property.
Records show Epstein purchased the ranch, valued by county officials at over $12 million, from the family of former Gov. Bruce King, who died 10 years ago. A 1995 Santa Fe New Mexican story about his plans to build a mansion on the property said the home would be 26,700 square feet (2,480 square meters) with a 2,100-square-foot (195-square-meter) living room. Aerial images of the property show an airplane hangar and landing strip. Closer to the east edge of the property, several structures that appear to serve as small homes and stables stand in public view.
The King family still owns land surrounding much of Epstein's ranch near the town of Stanley, a rural outpost on the plains that stretch east of the Sandia Mountains.
