A bit late now, isn't it?

In 2017, the Trump administration implemented a hiring freeze for federal correctional facilities, resulting is substantial losses in manpower. In 2018, Trump requested almost a 4% decrease in funding for federal prisons. At the same time, Trump has been increasing funding to private prisons, which were big donors to his campaign. While there can be no excuse for failing to safeguard such a high priority prisoner, firing people lower on the food chain and refusing to own up to problems that were caused by trump prison policies is par for the course.

Barr and Trump act like they were not in charge. In fact, federal correctional facilities report to the Attorney General and the DoJ reports to the president. Trump is quick to claim that he can do what he likes to the DoJ, yet somehow doesn't feel he or his Attorney General have any responsibility for how poorly the facilities are run. Neither does Trump take responsibility for the staffing shortfalls that are the result of his policies. That's our president in a nutshell. If something good happens, it was all because of him. If something bad happens, it is always someone else's fault.

The conspiracy theory is that Epstein committed suicide.

They should've been watching Epstein 24/7, especially after his first suicide attempt.

Being sloppy at your job is no excuse.

Barr found his fall guy.

Understaffed, overworked and in many cases, privatized.

An abhorrent system.

Yeah, but some powerful people wanted him dead.

Are the sure the Clintons didn't have anything to do with this, being as how Bill flew on Lolita Express so many times?

Maybe it was Holder...

You dug really deep on that one. Lol

This is all none sense, if liberals think that they can in some bizarre way Pin Trump on the person responsible for Epstein’s death and how the prison facility was operated, it’s going to be another dead end for liberals, but if you think it’ll give Democrats in some way political points, please try it, pleeeeese.

But only the white house had the means to have him killed...

Seeing as he and Trump were best friends, he was in Trump's personal custody, and he ended up dead, it's weird you're looking at the Clintons. Especially when Trump is a known pedophile who stared at pre-teens naked when he owned the miss teen usa pagent.

Very suspicious.

Black Sabbath But they want it to be pre-teens so badly. Titillation is central to interest in the case and people's worst imaginings are more important than the truth it seems.

Who is "they?"

Black Sabbath Most people fascinated with this case, especially those focused on the details of the charges and allegations against Epstein rather than his highly suspicious death in prison. Titillation and jealousy drives most interest, with a nice smattering of self-loathing for it too. Its how teens suddenly get labeled pre-teens and even children. The deep denial is off the charts.
