Labor Secretary Alex Acosta is set to hold a news conference on Wednesday afternoon to answer questions about his handling of a 2008 plea agreement with multimillionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is facing new federal sex-crimes charges involving minors.
Acosta’s deal with Epstein has come under renewed scrutiny after federal prosecutors in New York City charged Epstein on Monday with sex trafficking.
