Acosta's resignation is effective in seven days.
In the earlier case in opposition to him, Epstein became accused of abusing dozens of juvenile ladies between 1999 and 2007.

Acosta, joining Trump at the White House before the president left for a trip to Wisconsin, said he did not want to be a distraction to the administration's work because of his leadership of the Epstein case more than a decade ago.
