Jeffrey Epstein died via suicide earlier today, and no one on the right or left believes it. See, The Washington Post, “Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide is unfathomable.”
MSNBC host and former Congressman Joe Scarborough wrote, “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.”
Joy Reid implied that William Barr may have been responsible.
Others from conservative commentator Matt Walsh to ultra-far left wing activist Elie Honig are wondering how in the world a man who was on suicide watch after a previous suicide attempt was able to successful commit suicide.
- Watch: Cernovich discusses Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide
Do you believe that Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide on his own?

I worked at SDNY for 8-plus years. Collectively the Office had thousands of defendants housed at MCC during that time. I could be overlooking one but I can’t recall any suicides in MCC during that time. @PreetBharara @Mimirocah1 or others – did you know of any? Lots of questions.

Jeffrey Epstein was under suicide watch. Either the MCC was highly incompetent or there's a hidden Jack Ruby in this narrative.

Nope. Uh-uh. Now not believing anything said by authorities about this story. https://t.co/y2XzDed2WY

I am not into conspiracy theories. But Epstein had destructive information on an extraordinary number of extraordinarily powerful people. It is not easy to commit suicide in prison. Especially after being placed on suicide watch. Especially after already allegedly trying.
