"What is happening now with this investigation in the Southern District is they're going to get access to Jeffrey Epstein's videos", O'Brien said.
"Mr. Acosta will now have plenty of time and no distractions that prevent him from fully accounting for the sweetheart treatment Epstein received", he said.
