According to CNN, President Donald Trump is “spreading baseless claims” again. On Saturday, he re-tweeted a video post by comedian Terrence Williams “that claimed without evidence that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton” were “responsible for Epstein’s death.”
CNN is correct when they say that Williams didn’t provide any evidence. However, where there is smoke, there’s fire. Millions of Americans are convinced that evidence does exist, and that it has been suppressed. President Trump is one of them. Until that evidence finally sees the light of day, we all have to put up with the liberal media calling it a “baseless conspiracy theory.”
“I think the President just wants everything to be investigated,” White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway clarified. “Just the day before, there was some unsealed information implicating some people very high up.”
Somehow, Jeffrey Epstein was allowed to hang himself in his cell. That should not have been possible. The case has been an extremely high profile one and Epstein was already hospitalized once.
He was placed on suicide watch July 23, after being found unconscious in his cell. The first time looked like a suicide attempt, but assault by another inmate wasn’t ruled out. Somehow, he managed to convince prison administrators and psychiatrists that he wouldn’t try it again. They never told anyone he wasn’t being monitored. With hindsight, vast numbers of Americans are wondering how much money changed hands to influence that decision, and who paid it.
About an hour before President Trump shared the Williams tweet, Senator Marco Rubio highlighted that there are a lot of unanswered questions about what happened. “Scrutiny of how #Epstein was able to commit suicide is warranted,” he typed.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the watchdog keeping an eye on the Department of Justice, will be starting an investigation at the request of William Barr. The Attorney General was “appalled” when he heard the news. “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.”
He also said in the official statement, “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.”

Former deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein agrees that taking Epstein off suicide watch is suspicious. “pedophiles facing federal criminal charges are at high risk for suicide,” he tweeted Saturday. “It happened in several of my Maryland cases when defendants were released on bail. Detained pedophiles require special attention. Stopping people from harming themselves is difficult.”
Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee, was steamed. He wrote a letter to the Justice Department and the Bureau of Prisons stating, “the Department of Justice failed, and today Jeffrey Epstein’s co-conspirators think they might have just gotten one last sweetheart deal. Being responsible for Epstein’s custody and prosecution, the Department of Justice should not have allowed this to happen. His death not only deprives his victims of the opportunity to confront him in court and to see him held accountable for his crimes, but also makes it harder to unravel his ring.”
