Fox News is reporting that Attorney General William Barr was livid when he learned that Jeffrey Epstein died of apparent suicide early Saturday morning while awaiting trial for sex trafficking of minors.
Breaking story! Millions of Americans, regardless of their political views, are uniting, questioning how did this ever come to pass, that Epstein’s testimony was silenced in such a manner?
Epstein’s death also comes a day after thousands of documents were unsealed Friday in connection with a defamation cause against his alleged recruiter that revealed dozens of high-profile names including former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, ex-New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
Attorney General William Barr said Saturday that he is “appalled” by the death of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein – and said that he has spoken to the Department of Justice’s inspector general about opening a probe into the circumstances surrounding the apparent suicide.
“I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
Epstein, who is accused of sex trafficking minors, was found unresponsive inside his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City around 6:30 a.m. Life-saving measures were initiated immediately by responding staff. He was transported to the New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital and was dead on arrival, officials said.
The New York City medical examiner’s office told Fox News that an autopsy is pending to determine the cause of death. But the death comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was placed on suicide watch after being found injured in his cell. Epstein was in his own cell at the time of his death and was no longer on suicide watch, according to the Associated Press. [Fox News]
I’m usually against conspiracy theory; however, in this case, it is highly likely that he “dies by suicide” to prevent a people involved with him has not to be exposed.
Epstein may be dead, but his audio and video evidence on others lives on. If he were on suicide watch, he would never have been left unseen by a guard. His cell and person would have been stripped of anything he could have harmed himself with. No this was made to look like a suicide.
Interesting that documents unsealed yesterday naming some high profile figures and Epstein, on suicide watch already, manages to hang himself this morning. This case is far from over. Epstein wasn’t alone. Many other people participated in his crimes. Unless they all commit suicide, the investigation will continue, and heads will roll.
My take, this was not a suicide. It was an assassination. There is no way a witness; this important is not kept under 24-hour watch. This man had the means to obliterate many powerful families, and he was killed to keep him quiet. You would think that they would disguise it a little better than they did, but who is going to challenge them? I wish we had a real media that would investigate and search for real stories. This one would make Watergate look like a footnote.
