He has a message for the Democrats…
Attorney General Bill Barr has issued a statement after the apparent suicide of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
“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 said.
“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,” he said.
The attorney general’s statement came hours the FBI started its own investigation into the death of the convicted pedophile.
High profile people have asked many have questions as a man on suicide watch should not able to kill himself in a high security prison.
But conspiracies are what they are and there is no evidence at this time to suggest anything other than a suicide is what happened, as Reuters reported.
Jeffrey Epstein, the U.S. financier facing federal sex trafficking charges, committed suicide on Friday night in his lower Manhattan jail cell, several U.S. media outlets reported on Saturday.
Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 to 2005.
The charges were announced more than a decade after Epstein pleaded guilty to state prostitution charges in Florida.
He was confined in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while he appealed a district judge’s refusal to let him live under 24-hour guard in his home on the Upper East Side.
Last month, Epstein was found unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck, media outlets reported, citing unidentified sources.
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one of the people demanding answers in the death of the high profile pedophile.

Another is MSNBC anchor and host of “Morning Joe,” Joe Scarborough who said that the death sounded Russian.
“A guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men’s lives ends up dead in his jail cell. How predictably…Russian.
“He reportedly tried to kill himself two weeks ago. And is allowed to finish the job now? Bullshit,” Scarborough said.
“Powerful Democratic and Republican figures breathing a huge sigh of relief—as well as a Harvard professor or two.”
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons said in a press release on Saturday that the FBI is going to be investigating the apparent suicide.
