House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called on Labour Secretary Alexander Acosta to resign over what she referred to as an "unconscionable agreement" with Jeffrey Epstein, who was indicted Monday on sex trafficking charges in a NY federal court. Here's how they've been treated in the years since they first emerged. In point of fact, the connection with Mr. Trump turned so toxic that Mr. Epstein at one level suggested traffic that he blamed Mr. Trump for his appropriate sort complications with the Palm Seaside County police.

"As U.S. Attorney, he engaged in an unconscionable agreement w/ Jeffrey Epstein kept secret from courageous, young victims preventing them from seeking justice", she wrote, adding that Trump was aware of the deal when he appointed Acosta to his Cabinet.

In addition to the work-release jail sentence, Epstein was required to make payments to victims and register as a sex offender.

In announcing new charges against Epstein on Monday, New York prosecutor Geoffrey Berman said his team was "assisted by excellent investigative journalism". He faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted of both counts.

The former United States attorney has defended his handling of the case and tweeted that he is pleased "prosecutors are moving forward".

U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta will hold news conference later on Wednesday to address the 2008 plea deal with financier Jeffrey Epstein that he made as a U.S. prosecutor in Florida, the Labor Department said in a statement.

Jennifer Araoz, now 32, told "Today" she never went to police because she feared retribution from the well-connected Epstein.

Separately, prosecutors appealed to other women who may potentially come forward in the case, while the hedge fund magnate issued a non-guilty plea. In February, a federal judge in Florida ruled that the agreement between Acosta and Epstein violated the victims' rights. One of those parties was one Epstein threw for Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who's also been accused of and vehemently denies sexually abusing minors.

The girls were instructed by him or his associates to perform such duties nude or partially nude, according to the indictment.

That's when McCain brought up Dershowitz, who was one of Epstein's many high-profile attorneys over the years.

The former president said he's not spoken to Epstein "in well over a decade" and took four trips on the businessman's plane in 2002 and 2003, with staff and his Secret Service detail accompanying the two men on every leg of the trip. But in court documents, a Florida lawyer representing several of Epstein's alleged victims contended the Wall Street financier was barred from Mar-a-Lago after an unspecified incident involving a teenage girl.

Epstein's case highlights the growing problem of sex trafficking in America.

"The same woman that accused me claimed to have had dinner with Bill Clinton and two underage girls on Jeffrey Epstein's island, claimed to have met Al Gore and Tipper Gore", said Dershowitz.

"In order to maintain and increase his supply of victims", prosecutors claimed, Epstein "also paid certain of his victims to recruit additional girls to be similarly abused".

The White House and Trump Organization did not immediately respond to questions about the nature of that conflict. He called himself Epstein's "human ATM machine" and had been instructed to keep at least $2,000 in cash on him at all times. The house manager told police he would clean the bedroom after the massages and "discover massager/vibrators and sex toys scattered on the floor", the report said.
