Right-wing “journalist” and Trump–worshiping conspiracy theorist Liz Crokin posted a video on Saturday in which she claimed that President Trump appointed Alex Acosta as secretary of labor specifically in 2017 specifically to force the media to cover the arrest last week of Jeffrey Epstein for sex trafficking of minors.
Acosta resigned last week amid criticism of the lenient deal he gave to Epstein in 2007 when he was facing similar charges in Florida, where Acosta served as U.S. attorney. Crokin, who is an ardent supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges that Trump is working behind the scenes to expose a wide-reaching satanic pedophile ring that will implicate a number of world leaders, including top Democrats, Hollywood figures and business leaders, insists that Epstein’s recent arrest, as well as Acosta’s connection to the earlier case against Epstein, was part of Trump’s brilliant plan all along.
“There has been a lot of confusion with that and why President Trump would appoint someone aligned with Jeffrey Epstein,” Crokin said. “Whenever President Trump does something that you can’t understand, or I can’t understand, I always try to give it a few days because his actions don’t always make sense at first, but if you give it a few days and look into it and do some research, it always makes sense in the end. This man is brilliant. The plan has been in place for 20 years. President Trump is so many steps ahead of these people—the cabal—it’s incredible. Everything he does is very strategic. Every move he makes, every appointment he makes, every tweet he makes, every misspelling in his tweets; that man is brilliant and everything he does is strategic.”
“The mainstream media never would have covered Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest if they couldn’t align him with President Trump,” she added. “And having Alex Acosta, who has been aligned with Jeffrey Epstein, and it looks like covered up for Jeffrey Epstein, that enabled the mainstream media to attack Trump due to Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and that forced the mainstream media to cover Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest.”
