Elder Patriot – U.S. Attorney General William Barr held a press conference where he failed to challenge the medical examiner’s finding of suicide as the official cause of Jeffrey Epstein’s death:
“I have seen nothing that undercuts the finding of the medical examiner that this was a suicide.”
It may well be that the attorney general has decided there’s nothing to be gained by going down the rabbit hole surrounding Epstein’s suicide, and that he decided the focus should be on the “serious irregularities” at NYC’s Metropolitan Corrections Center,
some of which have already been made public.
As distasteful as the thought is, the United States can survive a group of unpunished pedophiles but it cannot survive the corrupt government agencies that conspired to protect those pedophiles because they were powerful politicians and others connected to them.
It now appears that Barr may have come to that conclusion, as well, and will not be sidetracked by events he can’t change.
Looking back to Barr’s statement that the DOJ released in the wake of Epstein’s death, the attorney general seems to be telling us that was, indeed, his intent:
I was appalled – and indeed, the whole Department was – and frankly, angry to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner. We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation.
The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened at the MCC and there will be accountability.
But, let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and they will get it.”
Remember, Barr had ordered that Epstein, a high-value witness, be protected not only from himself, but from anyone else with designs on silencing him.
It’s likely that the irregularities at the MCC will extend beyond those immediately involved in the protection of Epstein.
Barr is not alone in expressing the need to hold everyone accountable no matter who they might be… E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E.
U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) also expressed concern over the seriousness of Epstein’s death while under protective custody:
Sen. Sasse sent this letter to U.S. Attorney General Barr:
Barr told reporters his investigation was delayed because, “a number of them [witnesses] required having union representatives and lawyers before we could schedule interviews.”
Regardless of those delays, he assured reporters that they were moving expeditiously and that he’d soon be in a position to report the results of that investigation to the public.
Barr has already replaced the head of the Bureau of Prison, Warden N’Diaye at the MCC, and two guards. The longer this investigation goes on the greater the likelihood Barr has identified additional conspirators in Epstein’s “suicide.”
Either that or Barr has succumbed to the pressure to become a facilitator of a cover up.
