The suspicious circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death are troubling to millions of Americans.
The official story contains so many sketchy details that few people accept it on face value.
And William Barr just said this one thing about Jeffrey Epstein’s death that will have you speechless.
Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correction Center (MCC) in New York City.
Epstein – because of the charges of trafficking underage girls and his relationship with powerful Americans like Bill Clinton – may have been the most high-profile prisoner in the American criminal justice system.
On July 23, Epstein allegedly tried to commit suicide and the prison placed him on suicide watch.
The MCC removed Epstein from suicide watch on July 29 at the request of his lawyers.
On the morning of August 10, he was found dead.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons oversees the MCC and as such, it falls under Attorney General Barr’s jurisdiction.
Barr was outraged that MCC officials did not follow standard operating procedures such as guards failing to check on Epstein every 30 minutes and allowing him to not share a cell with another inmate.
Attorney General Barr responded to the public outcry over the suspicious nature of Epstein’s death by announcing a federal investigation.
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation,” Barr declared during a speech in New Orleans. “The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that.”
Barr cast the investigation as a chance to bring justice to Epstein’s victims.
“Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who had the courage to come forward and deserve the opportunity to confront the accused in the courtroom,” Barr stated.
“I was appalled and indeed the whole department was, and frankly angry to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” the Attorney General added.
An investigation by the Office of Inspector General may be the only way to give the American people a trustworthy account of Epstein’s death.
The Office of Inspector General also already produced one report on bias in the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
A second – and even more devastating – report on the FBI’s abuses of power in spying on the Trump campaign is due out in a matter of weeks.
The Office of Inspector General established a baseline of credibility that should allow Americans to believe the account the IG produces is a fair telling of events.
There were so many failures of prison officials dropping the ball on standard procedures that millions of Americans believe Epstein did not die of a suicide and that there was foul play involved in his death.
Until the Inspector General makes his report available to the public these theories will only continue to flourish.
