Barr On Epstein’s Death: ‘Co-Conspirators Should Not Rest Easy’

Attorney General William Barr, who has said that he’s “appalled” that Jeffrey Epstein was able to apparently commit suicide in his cell over the weekend, repeated those sentiments Monday, adding that any co-conspirators “should not rest easy.”

It is a matter of national and bipartisan shame that every jail suicide is not treated as though it requires a thorough and systemic investigation of the implicated facility.

That said, I wish I trusted Barr as far as I could throw him.

Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and they will get it.”

So, it IS a conspiracy then? Not just systemic problems and everyday negligence?

“We will get to the bottom of what happened, and there will be accountability,” he continued.

“Do us all a favor and cut your own head off!”

The “any co-conspirators” Barr is referring to are the ones implicated in Epstein’s crimes.

Don’t expect to see tRump’s name brought up. On the other hand, Bill Clinton can expect to be all over Faux News.

Notwithstanding Barr’s lies about Mueller’s Report, why should we take the word of Trump’s Consigliere General aka Cover-Up General Barr?

Cover-Up General Barr has ties that bind to Epstein’s case - his father dubiously employed young Epstein. Later, Barr recused then un-recused himself in the Epstein sex traffic case.

In 1992, NYT writer William Safire referred to Barr as “Coverup-General Barr” because of his role in burying evidence of then-President George H.W. Bush’s involvement in “Iraqgate” and “Iron-Contra.”

Addendum

“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation,”

Well, he’s certainly laying it on thick. Everything Trump touches dies, and I’d say Barr is entering the first stages of senescence.
