On Saturday, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell in an apparent suicide. Epstein was facing 45 years in prison for sex trafficking minors.
In a statement, Attorney General Bill Barr said he was "appalled" when he heard about Epstein's death considering the pedophile was on suicide watch for a suicide attempt which took place in July.
"Mr. Epstein's death raises serious questions that must be answered," Barr said. "In addition to the FBI's investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein's death."
Check out what Fox News reported:
The 66-year-old Epstein was found unresponsive inside his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City around 6:30 a.m. Life-saving measures were initiated immediately by responding staff. He was transported to the New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan Hospital and was dead on arrival, officials said.
Law enforcement sources told Fox News that the initial call to the jail was cardiac arrest. Multiple reports claimed that he hanged himself. An autopsy is pending.
Epstein's "suicide" fuels many conspiracy theories considering documents were released on Friday where one of Epstein's victims named several prominent figures who were involved with Epstein's sex ring. These names included Senator George Mitchell and Bill Richardson. Richardson was the former New Mexico Governor and also a member of Bill Clinton's cabinet.
Former President Bill Clinton has also had deep ties with Epstein in the past.
Back in early July, Clinton came out claiming in a statement that he "knows nothing about the crimes Jeffery Epstein pleaded guilty to."
Clinton did admitted to spending time on Epstein's private jet where much of the sexual assault took place. Read his statement below:
President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York. In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton foundation. Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein's New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He's not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.
According to flight logs, Clinton appeared to be lying. Shortly after Clinton released the statement, investigative reporter Conchita Sarnoff dropped a bomb on Fox News.
Sarnoff made the appalling revelation that former President Bill Clinton flew on Epstein's private jet, the Lolita Express, 27 times which contradicts Clinton's claim of having limited contact with Epstein.
She wasn't done. According to Sarnoff, underaged girls were on the same jet almost every time that Bill Clinton was on the plane.
"I know from the pilot logs. And these were pilot logs that were written by different pilots at different times, that Clinton went, he was a guest of Epstein 27 times… Many times Clinton had his Secret Service with him and many he did not. Almost every time Clinton’s name is on the pilot log, there are underage girls," Sarnoff stated.
She later added that Clinton is lying about having limited contact with Epstein.
