Saying he was “appalled” by the suicide death of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein over the weekend, Attorney General Bill Barr told the press today, “We will get to the bottom of this and there will be accountability.”
Barr, who oversees the federal prison bureau, says there were “serious irregularities” at the federal jail in Manhattan where Epstein was being held.
He also promised any of Epstein’s possible co-conspirators “should not rest easy.”
“The victims deserve justice and they will get it,” said Barr.
