According to a bombshell report, prison records were falsified on the morning of accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's death.
On the night that Epstein allegedly killed himself, prison guards just so happened to fall asleep and did not check on him for several hours. They then went on to falsify the prison records to hide the fact that they fell asleep.
On Tuesday, it was announced by the Justice Department that that the warden of the jail would be temporarily reassigned and two of the prison guards who fell asleep would be put on paid administrative leave.
"The two correctional officers in the special housing unit where Mr. Epstein was held — 9 South — falsely recorded in a log that they had checked on the financier, who was facing sex trafficking charges, every 30 minutes, as was required," The New York Times reported. "Such false entries in an official log could constitute a federal crime."
The Times added that the guards fell asleep for three hours which is when Epstein committed suicide.
"Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York to the Bureau's Northeast Regional Office pending the outcome of the FBI and OIG investigations into the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, a former MCC inmate," Kerri Kupec of the DOJ said on Tuesday. "FCI Otisville Warden James Petrucci has been named Acting Warden of the MCC New York. The Bureau of Prisons also placed on administrative leave two MCC staff assigned to Mr. Epstein's unit pending the outcome of the investigations. Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant."
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Epstein reportedly tried to commit suicide on July 23, was placed on suicide watch, and was then removed from suicide watch six days later on July 29. Epstein was then moved into a cell with another inmate who was transferred out of the cell — leaving Epstein alone — hours before Epstein committed suicide on Saturday morning.
The Associated Press reported that the federal Bureau of Prisons sent a suicide reconstruction team to the Metropolitan Correctional Center to "reconstruct the scene, analyze why Epstein took his own life and look at how it happened."
A source told the AP that "Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen is being briefed by the FBI every three hours" on updates from the investigation into Epstein's suicide.
Although Epstein is dead, Attorney General Barr has a serious message for those involved with Epstein's criminal past.
While speaking to the National Fraternal Order of Police in New Orleans on Monday, Barr noted that those involved with Epstein's sex trafficking case "should not rest easy" even though Epstein is dead.
“I was appalled and indeed the whole department was, and frankly angry, to learn of the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s failure to adequately secure this prison,” Barr said at the event.
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and office of the inspector general are doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability,” he noted.
“Let me assure you this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it,” he continued.
