Jeffrey Epstein’s death will long live in infamy, thanks to the incredibly mysterious and negligent circumstances surrounding the alleged “suicide”.
Epstein was undeniably the most infamous inmate on the entire planet when we passed, having recently been removed from suicide watch at one of the nation’s most secure prisons. This is where they housed “El Chapo”, the Mexican drug lord, after all.
In fact, Metropolitan Correctional Center hasn’t had a successful suicide attempt within their walls for four decades before the well-known and wealthy financier somehow hung himself from his bunk with a cot-blanket, using enough force to break several bones in his neck in the process.
As the investigation continues into how the alleged child sex trafficker was able to accomplish this near-impossible feat, Attorney General William Barr calling for heads to roll.
The first victim of his retaliatory wrath has now been identified.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Monday removed Hugh Hurwitz, the acting director of the federal Bureau of Prisons, a little over one week after alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein died in a New York City prison.
Hurwitz, who has been in his role since May 2018, has been reassigned in the Bureau of Prisons as the assistant director of department’s Reentry Services Division. Barr named Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, the prison agency’s director from 1992 until 2003, to replace Hurwitz. “I am confident Dr. Hawk Sawyer and Dr. Kane will lead BOP with the competence, skill, and resourcefulness they have embodied throughout their government careers,” the nation’s chief legal officer said.
The bureau has come under intense scrutiny since Epstein’s death, with lawmakers and Barr demanding answers about how Epstein was left unsupervised and able to take his own life on August 10th while held at one of the most secure federal jails in America.
A statement from Barr gave no specific reason for the reassignment. But Barr said last week that officials had uncovered “serious irregularities” and was angry that staff members at the jail had failed to “adequately secure this prisoner.”
Jeffrey Epstein’s death, and the subsequent suicide explanation, have infuriated Americans of all political stripes.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
