Political pressure

Political pressure?

The article in Saturday morning's paper regarding the Senate confirmation hearing for the labor secretary nominee, Alexander Acosta, raised serious questions regarding a case involving the billionaire sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, and discussed whether political pressure had been brought to bear to gain him a "sweetheart deal."

However, this article omits the fact that Epstein was a good friend of former President Bill Clinton who spent a great deal of time vacationing with a Epstein in the Caribbean. Perhaps a source of said political pressure?
