The left needs to stop putting out false information…
Christine Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, deleted a tweet on Wednesday containing a false quote about Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s secret plea agreement with Jeffrey Epstein.
“Mr. Epstein was a very wealthy and important person, his friends even more so, and these girls – much as we sympathized with them – just weren’t either of those things,” reads the fake quote shared by Pelosi.
According to the Federalist, former Bush speechwriter and Never Trumper David Frum first tweeted (and later deleted) the false quote as a shot at Acosta, who earlier Wednesday defended his 2008 agreement allowing the wealthy investor to avoid federal prosecution on charges that he molested teenage girls. Frum later apologized for the post, tweeting: “[S]orry – that sardonic comment should not have been phrased in a way that looked like a quotation, deleted.”
On Monday, New York City federal prosecutors revealed new child sex trafficking charges alleging that Epstein was involved in sexual activity with dozens of minors between 2002 and 2005. They said the hedge fund manager paid them for massages at his residences in New York City, Florida, New Mexico, and his private Caribbean island. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges, on which, if he is convicted, could land him in jail for the remainder of his life.
