Former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker spoke with Lou Dobbs on the effort by immigration judges to be unionized.
The Trump administration wants to decertify the judge’s union but the judges are fighting back.
He also weighed in on the death of Jeffrey Epstein and called it “fishy”.
He said that the DOJ will get to the bottom of what happened to Epstein.
“Fishy” is an understatemnt!
The prison guards didn’t check on Epstein and he didn’t have a cellmate.
He was taken off of suicide watch and was one of the high profile prisoners that fellow inmates wanted to see killed.
Whittaker says we need to “see the full picture”…
AG Barr spoke about his intentions in a speech:
Attorney General Bill Barr delivered a forceful statement about the death of Jeffrey Epstein saying he will get to the bottom of what happened to Epstein!
At the beginning of his speech to the Fraternal Order of Police’s National Biennial Conference, he made a statement about the death of Jeffrey Epstein and the people surrounding Mr. Epstein who facilitated the sex trafficking of minors.
Two key points Barr made:
-Barr said he was “appalled” and “angry” at the failure to adequately secure the Manhattan prison where Epstein died:
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation.”
-Barr also reassured that the case would go on:
“Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy.”
Full Transcript of Barr’s remarks on the Epstein case:
“Before I begin, I would like to briefly address the news from the Manhattan Correctional Center over the weekend regarding Jeffrey Epstein. This case was very important to the Department. It was important to the dedicated prosecutors and agents who investigated the case and were preparing it for trial. Most importantly, this case was important to the victims who dared to come forward and deserved the opportunity to confront the accused in court.
I was appalled – indeed, the entire Department was – and frankly angry, to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner. We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation.
The FBI and the Office of Inspector General are already doing just that. We will get to the bottom of what happened at the MCC, and we will hold people accountable for this failure.
Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice, and we will ensure they get it.”
To say there are irregularities at the prison is an understatement!
Do you believe Barr is serious about wanting to get to the bottom of the death of Jeffrey Epstein?
