Attorney General William Barr on Monday warned any “co-conspirators” to Jeffery Epstein “should not rest easy.”
Barr said there were too many “irregularities” that occurred at the MCC and the DOJ will get to the bottom of it.
Attorney General William Barr said Monday that Justice Department officials will thoroughly investigate "serious irregularities" at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) where accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found dead of apparent suicide over the weekend.
Barr also warned that any of Epstein's alleged co-conspirators "should not rest easy," noting that federal prosecutors will continue to aggressively pursue the case to ensure anyone who worked alongside Epstein will be held accountable.
"We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation," Barr said during remarks at a law enforcement conference in New Orleans, La. "The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are doing just that."
Barr said he was "appalled" and "angry" by the developments; he insisted that the Justice Department would "get to the bottom" of what happened and promised accountability.
"Let me assure you this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein," Barr said. "Any coconspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it."
