A top Republican senator is demanding answers about why the U.S. Department of Justice cut a 'sweetheart deal' with politically connected sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Sen. Ben Sasse, R.-Neb., wrote a series of letters to the DOJ this week after the Miami Herald reported that federal prosecutors had appeared to bend over backwards to accommodate demands from the multimillionaire's high-powered legal team and let him walk away with a light sentence.

"The fact that this monster received such a pathetically soft sentence is a travesty that should outrage us all,"

Sasse wrote to the DOJ. "I am particularly disturbed by this reporting indicating that federal prosecutors went out of their way to arrange this sweetheart deal for Epstein and conceal it from the women and girls that he abused who could have objected to it, in apparent violation of federal law."

One letter asked that the DOJ's inspector general review how the department handled Epstein's case and whether there was any misconduct, and another demanded a briefing on the agency's "decision-making process" in the case.

"We need answers on this epic miscarriage of justice," Sasse wrote.

Although not named in the letters, one of those involved in the decision-making was U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, who was a U.S. Attorney in Florida at the time.
A 53-page indictment was prepared that could have put him behind bars for life.

1. America is a violent, fucked up sicko culture.

Because of that, it's ok for me to break Epstein's neck, cut out his lying tongue and stick it up his ass. Conversely, his severed dick and balls they will find in his pedophile mouth.
