Alexander Acosta... Labor secretary. Prior to that, he was a prosecutor.

Now, a judge has ruled that he broke the law when he was working on a case involving Jeffrey Epstein and some child sex cases.

From: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...er-acosta.html
A judge ruled Thursday that prosecutors, including Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, violated federal law when they arranged a plea deal for the multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who spent just 13 months in jail despite being accused of trafficking underage girls and personally abusing scores of young victims. According to the judge, the prosecutors violated the rights of Epstein’s victims by arranging the plea deal secretly.

Epstein had some wealthy and powerful friends, including Trump, Alan Dershowitz, and Bill Clinton. You have to wonder if investigation of others was also suppressed.
