Trump Says It's Totally 'Fine' To Retweet An Epstein Death Conspiracy Theory

Epstein was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges when he was found dead on Saturday, having apparently hanged himself in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in lower Manhattan.

Attorney General William Barr vowed a full DOJ investigation into the death of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in police custody Monday; saying there are "serious irregularities" in the circumstances surrounding his apparent suicide. The FBI and the Justice Department's inspector general are investigating Epstein's death. He also warned the financier's "co-conspirators" to "rest easy".

The guards failed to follow several protocols leading up to Epstein's death, according to the New York Times.

He was placed on suicide watch last month after he was found on the floor of his cell with bruises on his neck, but he was later returned to the jail's special housing unit for inmates needing close supervision. "In order to bring Epstein's co-conspirators to justice, the Department of Justice should rip up the non-prosecution, non-investigation agreement entered into by Epstein and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida in 2008".

Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday morning.

Epstein was accused in early July of sexually exploiting and abusing dozens of underage girls in the early 2000s. "We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability", Barr said.

Despite Barr's assurances, the death of Epstein, who evaded severe punishment for more than a decade thanks to lenient treatment by law enforcement, could mean that molestation victims who had finally been promised their day in court by federal prosecutors won't get one after all. On Sunday, the New York City medical examiner's office announced that although it had completed an autopsy on Epstein, it needed more information before it could officially determine his cause of death, according to NBC News.

Epstein's death is the latest black eye for the Bureau of Prisons, which was already was under fire over the October beating death of Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger at a federal prison in West Virginia.

The moves are generally considered routine in such investigations, a source familiar with the circumstances told ABC News.

In recent weeks, the correctional officers' union has complained of understaffing.

The hulking former Briarcliff Manor cop told investigators that he didn't hear anything at the time and wasn't responsible for Epstein's injuries, sources previously told The Post.

President Donald Trump doubled down on Tuesday when asked about his promotion of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories in the wake of Jeffrey Epstein's suicide.

One of Epstein's guards the night he took his own life was not a regular correctional officer, one of those familiar with the case said.

The decision by officials at the Bureau of Prisons not to keep Mr Epstein on a suicide watch has come under scrutiny. "We can not allow Epstein's accomplices to escape, too".

Sigrid McCawley, Giuffre's attorney, said Epstein's suicide less than 24 hours after the documents were unsealed "is no coincidence".

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., released a statement Tuesday calling for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold an oversight hearing about the Bureau of Prisons.
