Feds Subpoena 20 Prison Officers Over Epstein Suicide


The Epstein suicide investigation started by Bill Barr is underway, and 20 prison officers have already been subpoenaed as investigators gather more information into what happened the night Epstein supposedly killed himself.

We know that the two prison guards who were in charge of Epstein during the hours he died by hanging dropped the ball and did not follow protocol as they were supposed to. It is even suspected that these guards falsified records and fell asleep on the job!

Because of this, Barr has already suspended them.

The prison staff have been initially uncooperative as well over the Epstein suicide investigation, but they will not be able to avoid the subpoena without facing severe consequences.


The Washington Examiner has more details on the subpoenas:

As many as 20 officers at the federal prison in Manhattan where Jeffrey Epstein killed himself have been subpoenaed.


Federal investigators sought the grand jury subpoenas as they try to piece together the events leading up to Epstein's suicide at the Metropolitan Correctional Center earlier this month, according to CNN


Two guardsmen who were tasked with watching Epstein are of particular interest to investigators. The pair, who have been placed on leave, are suspected to have fallen asleep on the job when Epstein died.


Attorney General William Barr ordered the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate both Epstein's Aug. 10 suicide, as well as his previous attempt on July 23, when he was found nearly unconscious on his cell floor with marks on his neck.

The National Review also said:

Federal authorities have issued subpoenas to as many as 20 correctional officers employed at the Manhattan jail where billionaire and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein killed himself earlier this month, according to reports Thursday.

New York’s chief medical examiner has ruled that Epstein, 66, died by suicide on August 10, hanging himself alone in his jail cell just a day after court documents were unsealed detailing allegations he’d operated a sex-trafficking ring that abused underage girls as young as 14. After apparently attempting suicide a few weeks earlier, on July 23, he’d been put on suicide watch for a time, but the watch was later ended for unknown reasons.
