AG Barr To Open Investigation Into Epstein Death

Well, we won’t get a chance to hear Jeffrey Epstein testify, but at least we can rest assured that the DOJ is looking into the strange timing of Epstein’s death.

Attorney General William Barr was “appalled” to discover that the world’s most powerful sex trafficker died while in custody.

“I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody,” Barr said in a statement. “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.”

BOOM, did you get that? The Trump DOJ is going to look into how Epstein REALLY died. You know, something they didn’t do when guys like Seth Rich were killed and robbed (but nothing was taken), or when Clinton enemies shoot themselves in the head twice… But this time, at least the feds are going to “look into” it.

Barr also made sure to let Americans know that the DOJ is still investigating the Epstein case, offering comfort to those who were victimized:

“To those brave young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you, and our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment – which included a conspiracy count – remains ongoing.”

Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska said it was “inexcusable” that Epstein wasn’t under constant surveillance. “The Department of Justice failed, and today Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirators think they might have just gotten one last sweetheart deal,” wrote Sasse. “Every single person in the Justice Department — from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer — knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him. Given Epstein’s previous attempted suicide, he should have been locked in a padded room under unbroken, 24/7, constant surveillance.

“Obviously, heads must roll.”

Epstein’s death comes a day after releasing information on multiple high-powered officials, including prominent Democratic politicians – former Sen. George Mitchell and ex-New Mexico governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson. 2,000 documents were unsealed by the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York that included affidavits and testimonies by key witnesses against Epstein, and those connected to him.

Don’t let this story die.
