On Tuesday, Mark Epstein, the brother of late serial sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, accused former Attorney General Bill Barr of covering up his brother’s death.
Epstein criticized Barr during an appearance on NewsNation’s On Balance with Leland Vittert for announcing in August 2019 that his brother had died “from an apparent suicide” when it “wasn’t really his position to do that,” and claimed the investigation into his death had not been properly conducted.
Epstein pushed back against Barr’s claim that his brother’s death was the consequence of “a perfect storm of screw-ups,” telling NewsNation host Leland Vittert, “Yes, there were screw-ups, but that doesn’t mean that my brother was, you know, committed suicide because of screw-ups.” There are a variety of reasons why he would not commit suicide at that time.”
He told Vittert that while his brother had admitted to having “dirt on the then-presidential candidates,” former President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “he didn’t tell me what that dirt was, and I don’t know.”
“I wasn’t involved in his day-to-day life, so I don’t know what he knows,” Epstein said, “but to return to your initial question, why?” You’d have to ask Bill Barr, I mean. If he was covering it up, as it appears he was, for whom was he covering it up? “Who was Bill Barr defending?”
