Joe Scarborough Blames RUSSIA For Jeffrey Epstein's Death

Shortly after billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was reported dead in an apparent suicide, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the alleged "suicide."

On Saturday morning, Epstein, who was in jail for sex trafficking minors, was found dead in his Manhattan jail cell. According to the New York Times, Epstein hung himself. Once he was found, the sex trafficker was taken to a hospital and was in cardiac arrest. He later died.


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.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has a conspiracy theory of his own but it's not what you may think. The anti-Trump show host blamed "Russia" for the suicide.

“A guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men’s lives ends up dead in his jail cell. How predictably…Russian,” Scarborough said, clearly linking the death to President Trump and the Russian collusion hoax.

He later added, "He reportedly tried to kill himself two weeks ago. And is allowed to finish the job now? Bullshit."

To Scarborough's defense, it is very odd how Epstein was able to kill himself while on suicide watch. So odd that Attorney General Bill Barr is now opening an investigation into the death of Epstein.

In a statement released shortly after the death,  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."

Epstein's death comes at an odd time considering key political figures including Senator George Mitchell and Bill Richardson were unveiled Friday night as members of Epstein's sex ring. 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.
