Attorney General opposes conspiracies, says Epstein’s death was suicide

Despite “irregularities” at the jail where Jeffrey Epstein died, Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that the evidence shows the convicted sex-trafficker committed suicide by hanging.

“We have found serious irregularities at the center, but at the same time I have seen nothing that undercuts the finding of the medical examiner that this was a suicide,” Barr told reporters at a roundtable event in Dallas.

There will be further investigations into the operations at the bureau where Epstein died, but the investigations have faced delays due to uncooperative witnesses.

“A number of them required having union representatives and lawyers before we could schedule interviews,” Barr said. “However, we are moving expeditiously and I think soon I will be in a position to report to Congress and the public the results.”
