Senate Democrats are demanding the Justice Department release the findings from an investigation involving Labor Secretary Alex Acosta's handling of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's case when he was a prosecutor in Miami.


In a letter obtained by NBC News, Sens. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) called on the DOJ to "make public all findings" its probe into Acosta's alleged mishandling of the Epstein case.

"The letter reflects concern on Capitol Hill that the department may not be planning a full public disclosure of all of the details of a highly controversial case involving a Trump Cabinet official," the report noted, "the latest example, many Democrats contend, of an administration that is not committed to transparency around investigations involving its own."

The senators added that although the DOJ said it would release information "as appropriate" and "consistent with past practices," it would not commit to any public release.

Acosta has been accused of giving Epstein an overly-light sentence when he was a prosecutor in Miami in spite of ample evidence of the billionaire's abuse of teen girls.
