How in the world could this happen?
One of the most wanted pedophiles awaiting trial, who allegedly had evidence against half of Washington D.C., who had previously tried to commit suicide in his jail cell….how was this man not on 24/7 suicide watch?
Who was in control?
Who was watching him?
Or maybe who STOPPED watching him?
He was in Federal custody, was he not?
So the Feds should have been watching and guarding him?
Guarding him against himself….and against any external threats.
These are the questions the American public is demanding answers to.
And so is Attorney General Bill Barr.
Good Bill, time to get involved.
This NEVER should have been allowed to happen.
It boggles my mind.
I thought Brandon Tatum summed it up nicely in these two Tweets:
And here's Rudy Giuliani asking the question we all want to know the answer to:
Others are not buying it was a "suicide" at all:
Bill Barr has said he will investigate:
Fox News had more:
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.
Earlier, multiple outlets reported that Barr was “livid” at learning of Epstein’s death
His death sparked calls for answers from across the political spectrum. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted that “we need answers, and lots of them.” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said in Iowa that the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death should be “reviewed.”
Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton announced they will be investigating as well:
