Former Attorney General Bill Barr Is Refuting The Popular Theory That Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself

It was reported that former Attorney General Bill Barr has settled theories surrounding convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

In his upcoming memoir, titled, “One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,” Barr wrote that he wasn’t convinced at first that Epstein had killed himself in his jail cell until he saw the surveillance footage.

Epstein was a wealthy financier who was awaiting trial on charges he sexually abused dozens of young girls in the early 2000s.

“Barr was the AG when Epstein killed himself in prison in August 2019. He was tasked with investigating how Epstein was able to kill himself while awaiting trial for sex trafficking. Conspiracy theorists speculated that Epstein was murdered in order to stop him from telling prosecutors about who else was involved in his child sex trafficking ring, if anyone. His family attorneys also said that the marks on his neck looked as though he had been strangled and not hanged by a sheet,” the Daily Mail reported.

“The New York City medical examiner had conducted an autopsy and ruled that Epstein killed himself by hanging,” Barr wrote. “Other evidence also pointed to suicide, but it was the video evidence that confirmed the medical examiner’s finding.”

“I personally reviewed that video footage. It shows conclusively that between the time Epstein was locked in his cell at 7:49 p.m. on the night of August 9 and the time he was discovered the next morning at 6:30 a.m., no one entered his tier,’ he wrote in his memoir.

The report added: “Barr says he ‘personally’ reviewed the surveillance footage and can conclude that Epstein was alone in the cell. ‘The New York City medical examiner had conducted an autopsy and ruled that Epstein killed himself by hanging. ‘Other evidence also pointed to suicide, but it was the video evidence that confirmed the medical examiner’s finding.”

“The two guards who were on duty were supposed to be checking on Epstein every 30 minutes. They told investigators that they fell asleep, watched TV, and simply forgot their duties – which many conspiracy theorists did not believe,” the Daily Mail reported.

Barr is on a media blitz for his new book and has also wasted little time speaking negatively about former President Donald Trump.

During an interview on NBC News with host Lester Holt, Barr spoke about his new memoir, particularly an “awkward” moment in the Oval Office.

Barr first saw then-President Trump after The Associated Press reported on an interview in which Barr said the Justice Department found no evidence of widespread fraud that determined the outcome of the 2020 election.

Barr told the AP’s Michael Balsamo that the DOJ explored some of these claims, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Barr said Trump was “enraged” over this and “slammed his fists” on the Resolute Desk.
