AG Barr is sending a strong message to those involved in Epstein’s suicide as well as his crimes beforehand:
POLITICO – Attorney General William Barr said Monday that authorities will “get to the bottom of what happened” — both in financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death on Saturday and in the ongoing investigation of his alleged sex crimes.
“There will be accountability,” Barr said at the Fraternal Order of Police’s 64th biennial conference. “This case will continue on against anyone who is complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.”
Barr said in a Saturday statement that he was “appalled” to learn of Epstein’s death, and it raised serious questions of the circumstances.
On Monday, he reiterated that he was “frankly angry to learn of the (Metropolitan Correctional Center’s) failure to adequately secure” Epstein. Barr said, after learning of irregularities at the facility, the FBI and Office of Inspector General are conducting a thorough investigation.
It is puzzling that in such a high profile case Epstein would be allowed to kill himself I’m glad Barr is investigating this with such zeal.
I do know there are conspiracy theories out there about Epstein’s death that even Trump likes to retweet, but I’m not one to really go that route. I don’t know what happened and I prefer to wait on the facts. Hopefully Barr will get them to us at some point soon.
