Jeffrey Epstein’s Prison Guards Exposed

By

Things just didn’t add up.

And some of the hard questions are finally being answered.

Back in July, Jeffrey Epstein was found in his cell nearly unconscious with injuries to his neck.

It was announced at that time that he’d be on “suicide watch.”

That means guards were supposed to check on Epstein all the time.

But he wasn’t.

Reuters reports:

At the MCC, two jail guards are required to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed overnight, according to the source. In addition, every 15 minutes guards are required to make another check on prisoners who are on suicide watch.

They were supposed to be checking on him ever 15 minutes, but instead the prison guards left Epstein alone for hours.

And now he’s dead.

This is too big to just ignore, and it’s likely some proverbial heads could roll.

Attorney General William Barr is none-too-pleased, and has released a statement demanding that the DOJ get to the bottom of this:

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.
