Elder Patriot – Hugh Hurwitz, the acting director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, has been removed from his position of leadership on the heels of the gross mishandling of high-valued prisoner/witness Jeffrey Epstein that resulted in Epstein’s suicide.
ABC News reported on just how valuable Epstein was as a witness:
Already named were:
Who else was waiting to be exposed?
Sarnoff: “I know from the pilot logs. And these were pilot logs that were written by different pilots at different times, that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein twenty-seven times…
Hurwitz had served as acting director since May of last year. Now he’s been demoted and reassigned.
While Barr offered no specific reason for Hurwitz’s demotion, he had expressed his disgust over the “serious irregularities” he had discovered at the Metropolitan Corrections Center that housed Epstein in an August 10th, statement:
“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.”
As a result of what he learned, he’d already reassigned MCC warden, Lamine N’Diaye and placed the two guards assigned to watch out for Epstein on administrative leave.
Now, the head of the entire Federal Bureau of Prisons has been served.
Barr is not known as being a loose cannon which would seem to indicate that the attorney general has learned a whole lot more since Epstein’s death and that this a far bigger than a couple of guards sleeping through rounds.
