When accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein died by suicide in a New York jail, some of his alleged victims reacted with outrage that he had robbed them of the chance to face him in court. But more than a dozen of Epstein’s accusers told their stories to a federal judge in Manhattan on Tuesday instead. Amna Nawaz talks to The Washington Post's Renae Merle about what the women shared.
