9:00 pm
broadcast for this monday night as we start a new week. thank you so much for being here with us and good night from nbc news headquarters here in new york. thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. it's nice to have you with us. happy monday. we start tonight with ralph wilson. who? ralph wils on on grew up and detroit. if you know ralph wilson, you do not associate with the city of detroit. ralph wilson is famous for having founded the buffalo bills. players like jim kellyy and o.j. simpson played on his watch and when ralph wilson died at the age of 95 in 2014, he owned that team for 54 years. the iconic nfl team came up for
9:01 pm
sale for the first time ever only when ralph wilson died in 2014 after owning it for 54 years. that team was for sale in 2014 and a motley crew lined up to try and buy the team. not motley crew the band, but rather a motley crew. a food service mogul. a natural gas billionaire. a bond investor from santa monica. the person who owned pabst blue ribbon and jon bon jovi who is jon bon jovi and also donald trump, who you know from other contexts. all of these folks were lining up to try to buy the bills. it was never on the market before. nfl teams never come on the market. it was owned by one guy for more than a half century. it was always going to be like a rich guy's street brawl. it got particularly nasty
9:02 pm
between donald trump and jon bon jovi. rumors started circulating around buffalo if jon bon jovi got the team he was planning to move the bills to canada. what? that was not true. but the rumors didn't derive from anything true that had been misconstrued. they were ginned up by a political operative. that is the guy who trump sent in to buffalo to try to knee cap jon bon joef tow outmaneuver him and he could buy the buffalo bills. in the end, none of those tricks mattered. mr. bon jovi and trump both lost out to the natural gas billionaire who was the one ended up buying the bills and did keep the team in buffalo. that might have been the end of it. trump lost. dirt tricks didn't work and
9:03 pm
didn't get there anyway. story over. except now that story is back. >> did this information provided to us inflate the president's assets? >> i believe these numbers are inflated. >> and of course inflating assets the way the newspaper polls to boost your ego is not a crime, but to your knowledge did the president provide inflated assets to a bank to help him obtain a loan? >> you may answer that question. >> these documents and others were provided to deutsch bank and one occasion where i was with him in our attempt to obtain money so that we could put a bid on the buffalo bills. >> thank you for your answer. >> testifying before congress and hearing in that testimony
9:04 pm
that the future president, donald trump, may have lied in a financial statement about the size of his assets to get a bank loan to buy the buffalo bills. it's obviously embarrassing, right? because he didn't end up being able to buy the buffalo bills, but potentially important legally. if he provided statements to a bank for purposes of defrauding the bank and persuade the bank to give him a loan with false representations about his abilities to pay it back, that's what they call bank fraud and part of what michael cohen and paul manafort are going to prison for now. last week leticia james issued subpoenas to two banks including the president's long time lend are, deutsch bank, citing testimony about trump's inflated assets. the subpoenas sought loan applications, mortgages, lines of credit and lines of transaction with the trump
9:05 pm
international hotel in d.c. and the doral in miami and the trump international hotel and power in chicago and also that weird failed effort to buy the buffalo bills with what was an inflated asset sheet. tonight the "new york times" has new reporting in this 4,000 word article they posted tonight, the new york times just posted new reporting that suggests a surprise twist in that already weird story. if president trump was inflating his assets in his financial statements to make himself appear richer than he was to persuade this bank to make him a large loan, in theory you expect the bank to be mad about that. and what cohen is alleging and what they are investigating is trump lying in order to convince the bank they should make him a loan they otherwise wouldn't make him if he told them the truth about how much money and assets he had. now the surprise twist tonight
9:06 pm
reported in the new york times is that apparently deutsch bank didn't mind. at least they didn't mind that much. according to this reporting, deutsch bank knew what he was doing in this buffalo bills scam and they were cool with it. in early 2014, mr. trump and his lawyer michael cohen approached executive rosemary -- about more potential loans. the owner of the buffalo bills had died and the nfl franchise was up for sale. mr. trump was interested and needed to show the nfl that he had the financial wherewithal to pull off a transaction that could top a billion dollars. mr. trump asked deutsch bank if the bank would be willing to make a loan and he handed over bare bones financial statements that estimated his net worth at $8.7 billion. michael cohen testified that the documents exaggerated trump's wealth.
9:07 pm
deutsch bank executives had reached a similar conclusion. meaning they also concluded that trump was exaggerating his wealth in this loan application. nevertheless, they agreed to vouch for mr. trump's bid for the buffalo bills according to an executive involved. so they said yeah, he's good for the money? what's being reported in the times is that deutsch bank knew trump was lying about whether or not weather he could afford a billion dollar loan to buy the buffalo bills or came to the conclusion that he was lying he submitted in support of that loan. he materially misrepresented his wealth and assets and ability to repay the loan, but they decided to do it anyway. what? who else gets to live in that world. where do i sign up for that? first of all, what explains that? is that just the way that banks
9:08 pm
operate? it would seem like it wouldn't be or they wouldn't be able to stay banks for too long and the question of the potential criminal investigations here. this buffalo bills transaction is reportedly the subject of a subpoena from the new york attorney general to the bank. the bank is cooping with all relevant investigations. is bank fraud still bank fraud if the bank is in on it and they know the person is lying about their ability to pay the loan back? if the bank is in on this, why would they do it? it's very strange. we really don't know what was going on between deutsch bank and donald trump in that transaction, but also over the course of their long relationship when every other bank on wall street had sworn him off and deutsch bank kept shoveling him money. with deutsch bank and trump, something didn't make sense in pure financial terms. going along with the loan they were lying about is weird. the times reports that in another loan they considered for
9:09 pm
trump early on they discovered that somebody forged the signature of a credit officer who supposedly approved a deal that was going to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars to trump. that's a bit of a red flag. trump defaulted on his deals to deutsch bank and lied to deutsch bank and they knew it. he sued deutsch bank to avoid paying back loans and took one part of the bank and used it to pay off another part. one banker was fired for misconduct. somehow they kept managing to shove more money his way. well over $2 billion in total. now that the relationship is it under investigation by the intelligence committee and the financial services committee and the new york attorney general, that executive who trump worked with most closely at that bank for years, rosemary, she now according to the times tonight said she expects to be called to testify publicly on capitol hill about her dealings with trump,
9:10 pm
presumably and her bank's dealings. that's according to people familiar with her thinking. we will have more on this story late or this hour. this one does seem to be cracking open. deutsch bank-trump relationship has been a flashing red light from the very, very beginning. all of these investigations around trump and this administration all turn into follow the money investigations. almost all of the follow the money investigations seem to find their way back to deutsch bank one way or the other. the "new york times" posted a 4,000 plus word o pus on trump's bank that has a ton of new stuff. we will have more on that coming up, but in general this is not the only thing that has been churning over the course of the day. today is turning out to be a busy day on the lie down with dogs, get up with fleas beat. some of stuff is spinning out
9:11 pm
from the paul manafort case as the president's chairman is stated to be starting his seven plus years in federal prison. not only is he facing new york state charges in addition his federal time, but when it comes to other things that are deriving from the manafort investigation, the bell is starting to toll for other people and other entities who may have been involved in the stuff that manafort is going to jail for. there was a moment in manafort's federal sentencing last week when now looking back at it, you can sort of see that the judge who sentenced him was teeing this up pretty clearly. i didn't feel until today like i knew what exactly the judge was gettin getting@this point where the judge launched into this tirade during his sentencing hearing, but today's news makes it pretty clear. this one bit from the transcript when manafort was in court last week before judge amy berman jackson, the second federal sentencing last week and at one
9:12 pm
point before she hands him down the sentence and talking to him about his crimes and the seriousness of his crimes, she said this. judge amy berman jackson. lobbying is not illegal. being paid to do it even on behalf of client who is others might view as unseemly or tyranical is not illegal. if you follow the laws that govern foreign financial transactions and pay your taxes, it's not illegal. it's okay to say members of congress, the government of the ukraine, would like you to consider the following. when you consider how to respond to his actions and when you determine what the foreign policy of the united states should be. but what you were doing, mr. manafort, was lying to members of congresses and the american public saying look at this nice pr firm and this u.s.-based law firm and prominent former european officials. isn't it great how they voluntarily stepped forward to stand up for the new ukraine
9:13 pm
administration when all along you were hiding that you and the ukrainians actually had them on the payroll. this deliberate effort to obscure the facts, this disregard for truth under mines our political discourse and infects our policy making. the people do not have the facts, democracy can't work. that was the judge in manafort's case just a few days ago reaming him out about the seriousness of his crimes and how what he did with this illegal lobbying stuff was not just a fail tower comport with some pesky regulations, but actually serious and a damaging thing for our democracy. now it's sort of more clear in hindsight. the way she is reaming manafort out there, what she moments later sends him to prison for is a type of crime that manafort didn't commit alone. it appears to have involved other people and other entities.
9:14 pm
the question remains as to whether they will get in trouble too like paul manafort is. the judge says and that tirade before the sentence, she said his scheme involved a nice american pr firm. a nice u.s.-based law firm who are supposedly voluntarily stepping forward to make a case for manafort-pro russian-ukrainian kpliclients. this was actually two nice american pr firms and a law firm who participated in the crimes as described by prosecutors. the special counsel's office looked into both of the pr firms and the law firm and as reportedly made some referral to federal prosecutors in new york for prosecution of those firms for their role in what manafort did. according to another story in the new york times from ken vogel katie benner, federal
9:15 pm
prosecutors were asking witnesses questions about the two pr firms who worked with manafort as recently as january of this year. we don't yet know if they are going to be charged, but prosecutors have been actively interested in them as recently as a few weeks ago. the law firm involved with manafort is a very rich and influential law firm. you might remember they entered into an official non-prosecution agreement with the justice department in january in which they admitted wrong-doing and agreed to pay back millions of dollars in ill-gotten gains from this scheme they were involved in with manafort. it's a non-prosecution agreement in exchange for them paying all that money and agreeing to train their staff and admit their wrong-doing. the justice department said they would not prosecute them. the lead partner who worked on this manafort case, the guy who
9:16 pm
worked on this scheme for which manafort is now going to prison and the law firm he had to enter into an agreement with prosecutors, that lead partner himself is not covered by the non- prosecutiprosecution agree because he left the firm last year. he is now ougt there on his own and would be an unusual fish to be caught in this scandal with this administration and president's campaign. that lawyer who is out on his own on this is gregory craig. he is a democrat and he was the first white house counsel under president obama during president obama's first year in office in 2009. after mueller referred the cases against the pr firms and the law firm for potential prosecution to sdny, the "new york times" report that is the case involving the lawyer, gregory craig, it got transferred in january from federal prosecutors
9:17 pm
in new york to prosecutors in washington. it all starts with mueller. mueller refers it for potential prosecution and sdn kbrrks keeps ahold for the pr firms and they enter into a non-prosecution agreement with the law firm, but when it comes to gregory craig, when it comes to obama's former white house counsel, that has been handed to other prosecutors in washington. i don't know if that's the u.s. attorney's office in d.c. or potentially prosecutors working out of maine justice at the security division or somewhere else. according to people familiar with the case, the times reports that prosecutors are moving quickly towards a decision about an indictment of gregory craig about whether to prosecute him is expected in coming weeks. and on top of all of that, propublica broke this scoop.
9:18 pm
they obtained a sealed search warrant against a man named elliott broidy. a major trump fund-raiser until last year he was the deputy finance chair of the rnc like michael cohen. the search warrant they obtained shows that federal authorities executed a raid on elliott broidy's los angeles office in july of last year. there was all that over michael cohen having his office raided in april of last year. elliott broidy had his office raided a few weeks later. according to the reported search warrant, agency were authorized to use broidy's hands and face to unlock any phones that required fingerprint or facial scans. how does that even work? sir, will you use your face to unlock this phone. >> no, i will not. sir, we have a court order to allow us to use your face. you can't use my face. sir, we are using your face.
9:19 pm
how does that -- search warrant authorized them to use his hands and face. the search warrant also reportedly cited three potential crimes that authorities were investigating by executing the raid and experience, money laundering and violations of covert lobbying on behalf of officials like paul manafort. the search warrant authorized federal agents to seize documents from broidy related to a bunch of different foreign countries including malaysia, u nated arab emirates, qatar and saudi arabia. they were authorized to seize documents to a man named george nader. he is believed to be a cooperating witness in the mueller investigation. he was granted in immunity in exchange for his help. they seized material related to the man who is the star of the show, rick gates. president trump's deputy campaign chairman who is also cooperating with the special
9:20 pm
counsel's office. his cooperation deal was just extended on friday for another two months. prosecutors say they are still working with gates. they are still extracting more cooperation from him that is helping them with multiple ongoing investigations. even though now it is more than a year since he started cooperating. so we are used to thinking about people who are caught up in the mess surrounding this president and this administration as being -- i do not mean this to be rude and i don't mean this in a personally minimizing way, but we are used to thinking the people caught up with all of this around the president as sort of trump world characters? is that a fairway to say it? people who could only exist in his orbit and otherwise certainly would never be national news for any other reason were it not for donald trump and his unlikely rise to the presidency.
9:21 pm
people like allen weisselberg who is a central character or michael cohen himself. he was a taxi medallion guy who was misreporting his income on sngd hand handbag sales. all these other people arrived in trump's drown car wiclown ca but it's no longer a contained epidemic. it's wider spread. now here's deutsch bank, this mammoth bank with calculations of risk and the most trump-adjacent executive publicly testifying in congress. they are fielding subpoenas from multiple law enforcement entities. even as his long time lawyer said he was committing fraud in
9:22 pm
his applications. they too were facing subpoenas. a major law firm entered into a formal non-prosecution agreement for the illegal dealings with the trump campaign chairman. a former senior obama white house official will know within a couple of weeks whether he was being criminally charged for alleged involvement in that scheme. two major rich pr firms in d.c. are facing that same prospect having reported ly being referrd to prosecutors and sdny. one dissolved under the pressure that all this scrutiny has brought. even the national republican party as an institution. they chose a new finance chair and two deputies to serve them in the trump era. all three have had to step down from their posts. one is on his way to prison. one we now know is subpoenaed for information about the other who we just learn said was
9:23 pm
raided last summer by the fbi. so now tonight it's time to have a conversation with congressman jerry nadler from new york. the chairman of the judiciary committee. on top of all those proceedings in this president's orbit, in the legal arena, chairman nadler said in addition all that stuff going in courtrooms and in prosecutors's offices around the country, chairman nadler said in response to multiple document requests, he said he has already obtained tens of thousands of pages of documents for his committee's multiple investigations of the president and his campaign and his administration. including thousands of pages from a surprising source, and that's next. y i'm not even in a♪ ♪ and the only thing u have to say is wow ♪ ♪ make you're jaw drop drop say oh my drop drop drop ♪

9:28 pm
>> pleasure. >> tens of thousands of documents. sounds like a lot. how does that comport with your expectations? >> we didn't know what we would get. we said today is the deadline to communicate with us. we are encouraged by touch information we are getting and how many people are responding. a lot of people have responded and a lot of entities have responded. some said they are going to. they want to work with us. some said they will respond if we give them a subpoena. we have gotten responses from sfrigz peopl surprising people. like steve bannon. we are encouraged, but we have to analyze. >> steve bannon sent you several thousand documents? >> that's what my staff tells me. >> in terms of people who said they are not going to respond or that they are giving you a hard time about what you asked for, there was a report tonight that
9:29 pm
the president's lawyers, the president's personal lawyers plan on sending you nothing. the daily beast reported that the president's personal legal team informed the committee they won't be sending anything over. is that likely to turn into a standoff in you can update us? >> it's possible. we will be talking to people and seeing if we can reach accommodations. people have to respond unless the president invokes executive privilege. they have no immunity. they have to respond. the white house and the executives have been stonewalling the judiciary committee not just on these documents, but they have been stonewalling and doing everything they can to have witnesses say i won't talk to you about the conversation with the president and won't talk to you about that without serving executive privilege.
9:30 pm
they have no pride to do tharig. >> you said in the past you did not intend to issue subpoenas without consulting with the minority and trying to work that out so there was agreement between the democrats and republicans on who ought to be subpoenaed n. terms of the people who have not responded or may not respond, do you anticipate republicans will be willing? >> they don't have to sign off. what i pledged was if they objected, we would hold a vote in the committee. we did that on the whitaker subpoena, but hopefully they will cooperate and what is a very legitimate inquest on work we have to do. we have to get to the bottom on behalf of the american people of all the allegations and suspicions of public corruption, abuses of power, of obstruction of justice because we must defend the rule of law. that is our job. this president has posed a lot
9:31 pm
of challenges to the rule of law. we cannot permit that to go on. >> you are at a point where you are raking in a ton of material. tens of thousands of documents from steve bannon alone. i asked you before whether you feel like you are adequately staffed to be able to handle all this material. this is multiple lines of inquiry. this is not a president who is suspected of doing one thing that needs to be looked into. how are you approaching that in terms of getting the work done? >> well, we will see how that goes when we review the documents. i think with modern computer technology and the staff, we can do a lot of work. if we need more staff, we will ask for it. i am terribly concerned about doing the job we must do for the american people and concerned about the mueller report. we can't wait for the mueller
9:32 pm
report. we don't know when it's going to come out and how broad it's going to be and if the attorney general will permit the american people to see the mueller report. we will do everything in our power including if necessary subpoenaing it to see that they do, but that the american people see this. our work is broader broader anyway. mueller is looking at crimes only. he is a prosecutor and looking at crimes and at the issue of russian interference in the last election and any obstruction of justice in connection with that. we have a broader mandate and abuses of power. when the president attacks the free press and the judiciary and law enforcement and the structures on which our democratic government depends, that is a real problem. we can't wait for mueller and depend on that. and in particular, in particular the justice department has said
9:33 pm
and the attorney general barr said whatever the mueller report has, they'll make what they can public, but they will not make or he said it's in their policy not to make public evidence about someone they have chosen not to indict. that's fine when you have chosen not to indict someone because you don't have enough evidence, but when you can't or believe you can't because the justice department takes the position that the law prohibits the indictment of a sitting president, they have taken themselves out of the business of holding a president accountable and to deny congress and the american people information or evidence about the president, my hamstring congress of doing its job of holding the president accountable. if they can't, the president is above the law and that is absolutely undemocratic and subversive of our form of
9:34 pm
government. we cannot permit that. we cannot permit and we will do whatever we have to do to make sure the mueller report and the evidence is made public. >> you believe you have the tools to do that even if they decide they would rather keep it? >> i believe we have the tools to do that and the fact is this justice department gave the judiciary committee under republican control last year 880,000 payments of documents which normal ly about people working in the fbi, et cetera, on the hillary clinton investigation, on the beginning of the mueller probe, they gave it to the congress. they are going to have to live by that precedent. >> jerry nadler of the judiciary committee. documents out to 81 different people are due today. the tens of thousands of pages they received include thousands from steve bannon o loalone.

9:38 pm
tonight the "new york times" is out with a 4 understand thousaunderstand -- 4,000 plus word report about president trump and deutsch bank. this new piece is based on interviews with more than 20 current and former deutsch bank executives and board members. his new reporting shows that deutsch bank appears to have played along as the president
9:39 pm
engaged in something that michael cohen alleged was kbaba fraud so he could get money to make a bit for the buffalo bills nfl team. why would they go along with that knowing he was lying about his assets. that's kind of just the foam on top of the beer here. there is a lot more over nearly two decades, the leaders repeatedly saw red flags surrounding mr. trump. a promised loan relied on a forged signature. wild exaggerations of mr. trump's wealth and even a claim of an active god. however time after time with the support of two different chief executives, the bank handed money over $2 billion to a man whom nearly all other banks deemed untouchable. we know how much this benefitted president trump.
9:40 pm
after all he was on the receiving end of $2 billion worth of loans. what was in it for deutsch bank. joining us now is the reporter behind the piece, the finance editor for the new york times and the author of of a forth womani coming book. you can me what people should take as the big picture? is it something other than that? >> the why are they doing it question is the right one. i think the fact that all these other banks refused to couch him and that touch bank was eager to embrace him. that's exactly the right question. it speaks to a lot of other problems that they are having and a lot of reasons that donald trump is now in the cross hairs of investigators in washington up in new york. >> i know you have done a lot of work on deutsch bank in general. i know very middle about banking and i don't think i could have pronounced deutsch bank.
9:41 pm
>> you are doing all right. >> were it not for the russia scandal and the follow the money type investigations, from your understanding is deutsch bank just this kind of a bad bank and make these seemingly inexplicable bad or disastrous deals with all sorts of people who fit the profile or treat him specially? >> he became a big priority for the bank over 20 years and he was making a tremendous amount of money for the bank and helping the bank with their reputation. donald trump would be one of the celebri celebrity participants. donald trump and sometimes ivanka would be stars of the interviews boasting about what a great relationship they had with the bank. they have a long pronounced history of lending to clients that turn out not to be very smart and engaging in criminal experiences. they have been involved with russian money laundering and involved in all sorts of market manipulation. these are crimes they admitted to.
9:42 pm
in that context, it's not -- every big scandal they seem to be right in the middle of. it's not a huge surprise when it comes to financing someone who is off limits for most of the mainstream banking industry and almost all of wall street that is deutsch bank. >> one of the things i have never really understood about that dynamic is while i can see the bank thinking of trump as an excellent promotional opportunity as a celebrity they want to be associated with and worth extra risk because they can make money some other way, does doesn't that dissolve when his defaults on it a year after they issue those bonds? >> it's really incredible and remains a bit of a mystery why any residential actor would throw money away. >> over and over again. >> one of the things i hadn't realized is there was a big loan they made them in chicago.
9:43 pm
trump defalls and sues the bank, blaming it for predatory lending against him. the bank completely stops doing business for a couple of years. even prior to that, it turns out another one is similar. deutsch bank gets hired to sell hundreds of millions in junk bonds to finance a project and they are the only one that will do it and they do it after trying hard and trump rewards the bankers with a trip to mar a lago. less than a year later, he defaults and that part of the bank said that's it. we can't do wbusiness with this guy. no one tells the rest of the bank. this is a corporate cult thaur rewards risk taking and doesn't punish losses. those are not good traits to have if you are a big company. it sets deutsch bank up for a perfect storm with criminal scandals with money laundering and market manipulation and that intersects around the same thing
9:44 pm
with the loan to donald trump. >> the reporter behind this big new piece in the times tonight, a mar a lago weekend and act of god, trump's history with deutsch bank. filling in a lot of the blanks for me. >> it's my pleasure. >> my pressure. >> stay with us. >> my pressure >> stay with us. i have three little kids. i can't have cancer. so we decided to travel to cancer treatment centers of america. dr. fernandez was wonderful. he said it was up to me to do what's best. it's about giving her options, where amy has all the information to make a decision that's best for her. we left on day one feeling like we're gonna beat this and this is the place that's gonna help us do it... that feeling is priceless. learn more at appointments available now. learn more at guys do whatever it takes to deal with shave irritation. so, we re-imagined the razor with the new gillette skinguard. it has a unique guard between the blades. that's designed to reduce irritation during the shave.
9:45 pm
because we believe all men deserve a razor just for them. the best a man can get. gillette. if your moderate to severeor crohn's symptoms are holding you back, and your current treatment hasn't worked well enough it may be time for a change. ask your doctor about entyvio®, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio® works at the site of inflammation in the gi tract, and is clinically proven to help many patients achieve both symptom relief and remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio® may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. pml, a rare, serious, potentially fatal brain infection caused by a virus may be possible. tell your doctor if you have an infection experience frequent infections

65,000 people, which means enough to qualify for the debate, but i don't know about the bottom line. a couple of things. number one, it's a race to be first. but it's also obviously that a lot of these people are when you combine them, a lot of these people are putting together numbers that make you realize what kind of money there will be in the primary in total. if you combine all of these numbers and think about how much enthusiasm there is and how that might go down to the ultimate nominee, big numbers are good for democrats in general regardless of what it means about the competition among them. but also, you know, who knows how all of this comes out and whether gigantic polling matters in the long run. i will say up until now i i felt

the first girl who came forward was only 14 years old and told her parents and the police jeffrey epstein molested her when she went to his florida
9:53 pm
mansion. what police found after she came forward, that 14-year-old girl were dozens of young girl who is had the same story. some as young as 13. based on those accounts from the brave girls and young women, the fbi prepared more than 50 pages of criminal charges for being a serial child sex offender. if convicted of those charges he could have easily spent the rest of his in federal prison. instead, the federal prosecutor, the u.s. attorney working on that case gave jeffrey epstein something called a non-prosecution agreement that grpted him immunity from all federal charges. rather than take him to court on the 53 pages of child sex crime charges, then u.s. attorney, now trump labor secretary alex acosta let him plead guilty to just two state prostitution charges. of the two crimes, only one
9:54 pm
involved an under age girl. last month, a federal judge ruled that alex acosta broke the law when he made that no non-prosecution deal with jeffrey epstein because acosta kept it hidden from dozens of victim who is had a right to know about the proceedings in that case. that not only looks bad for a sitting cabinet official, a judge ruled it is bad. this is a federal judge ruling that a sitting cabinet secretary broke the law at his last federal job. by the way, it had to do with a child sex offender. now it's gotten worse though. remember alex acosta agreed to let jeffrey epstein plead guilty to only one sex crime that involved an underage girl. the age of that girl in the crime has never been revealed in the court record, but in this new reporting from "the washington post"ry learned the only minor epstein was convicted
9:55 pm
of soliciting was 16 years old. they had him complete to a crime with a 16-year-old. the first victim to tip off police to what he was doing was 14. some of the victims were as young as 13. when alex acosta put together the sweetheart plea deal, the non-prosecution deal with epstein for all federal crimes, he had a 53-page indictment worth of stories from 13 and 14 and 15-year-olds who said epstein molested them when they were kids. instead he made a deal where he only pled guilty to a vim involving just one underage vehicles. not a 13 or 14 or 15-year-old, but someone who was 16 which under the law in some places is not quite as bad. has real tangible positive effects on his life there after. this is from the post again today. the age of consent is 16 years old in more than half the states
9:56 pm
in the u.s. the decision to charge him with a vim involving an older teen eased his obligations to register as a sex offender n. new mexico he has a 7600 acre property, she not required to register at all because his victim was not under 16. his victim was not under 16. she was, but they didn't -- that plea deal brokered by alex acosta means that child sex offender is less burdened by the laws. he got a better deal in jail and after jail, after striking that agreement which was illegal. yet tomorrow morning, alex acosta will report to another day of work as donald trump's secretary of labor. how is this not a bigger problem for alex acosta, let alone this white house? watch this. watch this i have a vision correction number,
