‘President Donald Trump’s labor secretary nominee is facing questions over the unusual plea deal he oversaw for billionaire sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, while serving as US attorney in Miami.

Alexander Acosta made a deal with Epstein which meant he avoided federal prosecution and a potential life prison sentence when he was found guilty of soliciting prostitution in 2008.

He is now at the center of a lawsuit, which names President Donald Trump as a witness, which accuses him of mishandling the case a decade ago.

Critics, including attorneys for some underage victims of financier Epstein, claim the plea agreement was a ‘sweetheart deal’ made possible only by Epstein’s wealth, connections and high-powered lawyers.’

‘Documents recently dredged from the CIA’s massive database expose an effort by the former director to destroy documents evincing the agency’s illegal activities and operations.

That director — George H.W. Bush, who served in the role from January 1976 until January 1977 — went on to become the 41st President of the United States.

As MuckRock reports,

In 1976, Congresswoman Bella Abzug wrote to CIA Director George H.W. Bush about the existing moratorium on the destruction of CIA files. As the Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Government Information and Individual Rights, which had jurisdiction over government information policy including FOIA and the Privacy Act, she wanted the moratorium extended — specifically, she wanted to ensure that Congress had time to enact legislation in response to the Church, Pike, and Rockefeller hearings and the resulting reports.’

Mr Flores, who was once involved with the Policia Judiciaria – who conducted the initial search – said: ‘Maddie died in that apartment, I have no doubt.’

‘The weedkiller glyphosate – the main ingredient of Roundup – does not cause cancer, a European Union expert committee has controversially concluded.

The European Chemicals Agency’s Committee for Risk Assessment said it had agreed to restrict warnings to the current advice that it can cause “serious eye damage” and is “toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects”.

The committee, known as the RAC, “concluded that the available scientific evidence did not meet the criteria to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen, as a mutagen or as toxic for reproduction”.’

‘A Lords probe into peers who claim thousands of pounds in perks but don’t do any work was dropped amid fears of a public backlash.

Baroness D’Souza, a former Lord Speaker, spent months investigating peers who clock in to claim their tax-free £300 daily allowance without making any contribution in the Upper House, but scrapped the research to avoid ‘naming and shaming’ offenders.

Her shocking admission of a cover-up comes on the day when peers’ attempts to thwart Brexit are expected to come to an end.’

‘The Centers For Disease Control often places a disclaimer on their recommendations that reads, “CDC, our planners, and our content experts wish to disclose they have no financial interests or other relationships with the manufacturers of commercial products . . . CDC does not accept commercial support.”

This would lead many to believe that the CDC is not prey to industry whimsy and does not receive money from the very companies we the people try so desperately to protect ourselves against. Unfortunately, this disclaimer is something of a fallacy: the CDC does receive money from corporations, and they get it from just about every major corporation in the country.

You may be wondering, “how do they get away with that?” but the answer simple: through their very own foundation that was even approved by Congress.’

‘It seems that the Huffington Post has continued to block or censor articles that don’t align perfectly with the media outlet’s views — especially when it comes to the documentary, Vaxxed. Almost exactly one year ago — in April of 2016, the same publication was caught censoring positive reviews of the film about vaccines. Now, the Leftist mainstream media site is at it again.

British writer Sally Beck reports that she had written two articles pertaining to the film recently. Her first article, titled, “Vaxxed: should we watch this film?” was published on Huff Po’s U.K. site on February 21st. She went on to co-write a second article, “The MMR vaccine: why it’s sensible to worry about the way it has been regulated,” and it was published shortly after the first.

The article on the documentary itself was primarily an overview of the film’s content, while the second article served to express support for parents who are concerned about the MMR vaccine. Both articles respectfully acknowledged the CDC whistleblower, William Thompson, and other figures in the “anti-vax” community, such as Andrew Wakefield and Brian Hooker.’

‘The anonymous nature of the search engine Tor is in question after the Department of Justice (DOJ) dropped charges to protect details of how they hacked the browser.

IP’s of visitors using the anonymity software to access a child pornography site were identified using the hack.

“Disclosure is not currently an option,” Federal Prosecutor Annette Hayes wrote in Friday’s court filing for the case United States v. Jay Michaud.

Hayes said that dismissal without prejudice would allow for future charges when the government might “be in a position to provide the requested discovery.”‘
