AG Bill Barr Consults With Inspector General To Launch Investigation Into Epstein’s Death


You have probably heard by now that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell, strangled apparently by hanging himself despite the fact the he was at least supposed to be on suicide watch, though new reports suggest he may not have been at the time of his death.

Though the death is being billed as a suicide, it is arousing suspicion for various reasons, including the fact that Epstein died hours after court documents were unsealed incriminating many Democrat politicians, princes, and other wealthy, powerful elites.

For this reason and many others, Bill Barr said that he is “appalled” over the Epstein suicide. Barr has “consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”

Leave it to Bill Barr to get to the bottom of things!

In related news following Epstein's apparent suicide, Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit made this observation:

Today has been a crazy day.

We'll have to wait to see what the investigation the Inspector General is launching will turn up!

The Hill has more details on Barr's reaction to Epstein's death:

Attorney General William Barr on Saturday decried the death of wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein in federal custody while he awaited charges on sex trafficking, saying the apparent suicide "raises serious questions."

“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," Barr said in a statement.

"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," Barr added.

Epstein was reportedly placed on suicide watch in late July after he was found unconscious in his jail cell with marks around his neck. However, reports Saturday indicated he was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons announced earlier Saturday morning that the FBI would investigate his death.

The Metropolitan Correctional Center, the Manhattan jail where Epstein was being held awaiting trial, did not immediately return The Hill's request for clarification about Epstein's suicide watch.

In the statement earlier Saturday, the Bureau of Prisons said Epstein had been discovered in his cell about 6:30 a.m. and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment where he was later pronounced dead.

International Business Times also said:

Following reportsSaturday that accused sex trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had committed suicide in his New York prison cell, U.S. Attorney General William Barr has issued public comments.

“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,” Barr said in a statement. “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.”

Sources close to the situation told CNNthat Barr is “livid” about Epstein’s death and “is determined to get to the bottom of what happened.” A federal official told the outlet that foul play is not suspected. The Southern District of New York’s investigation into Epstein remains ongoing.

The Federal Bureau of Prison reported that Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m. ET.

Epstein, 66, is believed to have committed suicide.
