The conservative OAN news network on Wednesday suggested that former special counsel Robert Mueller could be implicated in Jeffrey Epstein’s original plea deal.
At a press conference, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta defended what has been called a “sweetheart plea deal” that let Epstein off with 13 months in county jail. Epstein has been accused of sexually molesting children as young as 14.
Acosta called on OAN’s Neil McCabe, who wanted to know who else at the Department of Justice had reviewed the plea deal.
“Did you have any interaction with Robert Mueller at the time?” McCabe asked hopefully.
Acosta, however, disappointed the reporter.
“I do not have a full list of the individuals that reviewed this matter at main Justice,” he explained. “I would refer you to the record. This was 12 years ago.”

GOP donors are ‘rattled’ by bad economic signs and are searching for a Trump primary challenger: Former GOP senator
Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) told the Washington Post on Wednesday that he's received calls from several nervous Republican donors who fear a slowing or shrinking economy will doom the GOP in 2020 -- and they're looking to find a primary challenger for President Donald Trump.
Although Flake declined to name the donors, he did say that they believe the GOP stands no chance of winning in 2020 if the economy sputters, especially since Trump's divisive leadership style has permanently alienated so many Americans.
"They are wondering, if the economy isn’t stellar next year, how is the party going to win?" Flake said. "By the president offending more people?"
Ocasio-Cortez says the electoral college system is a racist scam
"Many votes here as you can see," Ocasio-Cortez said, showing a vast empty landscape. "Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country."
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez injected humor into her commentary on the Electoral College, which she posted on Instagram Monday night, but her message was serious: the 232-year-old system which allowed Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump to win their elections with less support from voters than their Democratic opponents, gives precedence to white people's votes over those of people of color.
The progressive New York Democrat narrated a video taken from a car driving through a stretch of an empty desert road, showing no houses, cars, people, or businesses—saying the image illustrated why the Electoral College should be abolished in favor of of a "one person, one vote" system.
Trump horrifies the internet by tweeting out quotes from anti-Semitic superfan comparing him to ‘second coming of God’
President Donald Trump tweeted out some quotes from a superfan who compared him to Jesus Christ, in a tweetstorm doubling down on his widely criticized remarks about Jews and Israel.
The president on Tuesday questioned the loyalty of Jews who voted for Democrats, which was widely condemned as anti-Semitic, and he defended himself the following morning by tweeting out quotes from Newsmax commentator Wayne Allyn Root -- who has promoted anti-Semitic and racist conspiracy theories against George Soros and President Barack Obama.
“Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words," Trump tweeted. “'President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel.'"
