Mark Epsetin has gone scorched earth and accused former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr of covering up the death of his brother.
The official government narrative is that the late disgraced financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in a jail cell in 2019.
At the time, he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges and was accused of providing powerful elites with underage girls.
However, not everybody believes that Epstein killed himself.
Among the doubters is the deceased’s brother, Mark Epstein.
Mark Epstein has now gone public and accused Barr of a “cover-up” regarding the true details of the death of his controversial sibling, the Daily Mail reported.
Epstein questioned the thoroughness of the supposed “investigation” of the suspicious death and noted several inconsistencies that have caused him to doubt the official conclusion of suicide.
Mark Epstein spoke by phone this week with NewsNation host Leland Vittert.
When Vittert asked why he has insistently demanded an additional probe into his brother’s death, Epstein replied that there “doesn’t seem to have been much of an investigation at all.”
“Things like the EMT and the medical personnel at the hospital, none of them have ever been questioned,” he continued.
He explained that he found this “odd” because “They’re always questioned, especially in high-profile cases.
“So the question becomes, what investigation was done?
“There doesn’t seem to have been any.”
He further noted that the county pathologist who conducted the autopsy, as well as a private pathologist he hired, “both came out of the autopsy saying they could not call it a suicide because it appeared too much like a homicide.”
As a result of this conclusion, they both wrote “pending” as the cause of death.
However, Epstein said, rather than wait several weeks for further investigation, then-AG Barr is alleged to have intervened just days later and declared the death to be a “suicide,” even though “It wasn’t really his position to do that.”
At that time in 2019, according to CBS News, Barr said he was “appalled” at the number of “serious irregularities” at the Manhattan jail where Jeffrey Epstein died.
According to the Daily Mail, Barr later said in an interview that a “perfect storm of screw-ups” had resulted in the unfortunate opportunity for the previously convicted pedophile to take his own life while awaiting additional sex trafficking charges.
In the NewsNation interview, asked if he believed Barr’s assessment, Mark Epstein replied, “No, I don’t.
“Yes, there were screw-ups, but that doesn’t mean that my brother was, you know, committed suicide because of screw-ups.”
He went on to mention “a number of reasons why he would not commit suicide,” including his concerted efforts to be released on bail.
He also later noted that his brother had mentioned having undisclosed “dirt” on the Clintons but professed ignorance of what that supposed information might have been.
“I wasn’t involved with his day-to-day life so I don’t know what he knows, but to go back to your initial question, why? I mean, you’d have to ask Bill Barr,” Epstein said.
“If he was covering this up, which it appears to be, who was he covering it up for?
“Who was Bill Barr protecting?”
Mark Epstein has been raising questions about his brother’s death for years.
However, he seems to have a renewed urgency now amid the release of unsealed documents from a previously settled lawsuit filed by one of the deceased’s alleged victims that sheds a little more light on some of the high-profile figures who were rumored to have been involved in the late Epstein’s alleged sexual proclivities.
In a separate interview last week with local Florida media outlet WPBF, Epstein was dismissive of the documents.
“What I’m concerned about is my brother’s murder,” he said.
He later added of the supposed federal investigation of the purported suicide, “Yes, it’s a cover-up.
“I don’t think Bill Barr killed my brother.
“So then, who is he covering up for?
“That becomes a question, and that’s what he should be asked.”
