On Tuesday, the Department of Justice led by Attorney General Bill Barr made a bold move against the prison where accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was held before his death.
The Department of Justice announced that the warden of the jail would be temporarily reassigned and two of the prison guards on duty during the night of his death would be put on paid administrative leave.
“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 a DOJ spokesperson said.
“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.”
The swift decision by the DOJ comes after several bombshell reports were released about the shocking behavior of those in charge at the jail where Epstein was being held, one of those being that Epstein was taken off suicide watch just a couple weeks after he allegedly tried killing himself.
Another shocking report came from CBS news: “On the morning of Jeffrey Epstein’s death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell, a source familiar with the situation told CBS News. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying ‘breath, Epstein, breath.'”
It gets worse. Just hours before his death, Epstein’s cellmate just happened to be moved to another cell.
Check out what the Washington Post reported:
Officers should have been checking on Epstein, who was being held in a special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, every 30 minutes, and, under normal circumstances, he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.
But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night.
That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him.
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.

Notorious anti-Semitic and anti-Israel representatives, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, are planning a protest visit to Israel this weekend.
But they might not be allowed in the country.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is planning an announcement for later today that could signal that Israel will deny entrance to the two freshmen lawmakers.
Natanyahu has reportedly already discussed the matter with his cabinet.
From The Wall Street Journal:
Israel is considering denying entry to Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, government officials said, as their planned visit to Jerusalem and the West Bank generated controversy over their criticism of Israeli policy toward Palestinians.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu consulted with several cabinet officials on Wednesday to reach a final decision on the visit. The freshman Democrats were supposed to arrive this weekend and had planned visits to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron and Ramallah.
Israeli officials said they would release more information later Thursday.
“There is a possibility that Israel will not allow the visit in its current proposed format,” an Israeli official said.
Blocking the liberal congresswomen would likely prompt a fierce backlash from Democrats and some Jewish groups. President Trump has frequently attacked the lawmakers, in part over their views on Israel, for which he said they should apologize.
Israel could block them under legislation that denies entry to people who support the boycott movement against Israel. …
The two women are well known for their anti-Semitic rhetoric and anti-Israel political stances while in Congress.
The two are currently planning a protest visit to Israel to highlight a boycott movement against the country.
The Washington Post has more:
Speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, the official said that if Tlaib, an American of Palestinian heritage, made a special humanitarian request to visit her family in the occupied West Bank, then “it would be considered favorably.”
Omar and Tlaib, who have both been outspoken critics of Israel and support a boycott movement against the country, are slated to arrive Sunday. Their trip is being planned by Miftah, a nonprofit organization headed by Palestinian lawmaker and longtime peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi. …
Denying entry to Omar and Tlaib would likely deepen the divide between the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Democrats, who have privately said that such a move would be inconsistent with Israel’s reputation as a country that prides itself on being a democracy tolerant of political expression.
Informed Wednesday that Israel would formally deny entry to Omar and Tlaib, Democrats in Congress quietly braced for a new public fight with the long-serving Israeli leader, said several congressional aides familiar with the discussions.
It is still unclear whether Netanyahu will follow through on that decision…
This is a developing story.

Former President Barack Obama loves to make himself the center of attention and portray himself as the greatest president this country has ever had.
But he just got hit with a rude awakening about the 2020 presidential election that he probably never saw coming.
In 2016, Obama supported Hillary Clinton and actually encouraged his vice president, Joe Biden, not to run for president.
Now that Biden is currently the 2020 frontrunner in the Democratic Party, the other candidates are attacking Obama’s legacy and failed actions to show that the former VP should not be the next commander-in-chief.
Democrats are basically slamming Obama and calling him out for his failed policies as a way to gain ground on Biden.
That has not sat well with Obama, who does not want to be a political pinata and have his legacy attacked because Biden is now in the race.
Making matters even worse, Biden is also not doing a very good job of actually defending his former boss and some of the things they accomplished while in office.
During the Democratic primary debates last Thursday, all 10 of the candidates on the stage — including Biden — raised their hand in favor of abolishing Obamacare and implementing the socialist “Medicare for All.”
Just consider that: Biden, who was a major player in helping create and push Obamacare, now argues it is ineffective and should be abolished.
That’s a huge blow to his former boss, which may be why Obama has not endorsed Biden in the 2020 race.
Now Obama’s time in office is being used as a crutch by a candidate he may not actually support or want to see as the next president of the United States.
Biden also struggled mightily last week during the debate over his previous support for pro-segregationist Democrat senators and forced school busing.
California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris took Biden to the woodshed and accused him of having racist policies in the past.
“It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country,” Harris said. “And it was not only that — you also worked with them to oppose busing.”
She then talked about growing up in California where she was bused to integrate her public schools.
“And that little girl was me. So I will tell you that on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously. We have to act swiftly,” Harris stated.
Pressed by Harris on whether he regretted his position on busing, Biden argued that he did not oppose busing generally.
“I did not oppose busing in America. What I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education,” he said.
“I’m the guy that extended the voting rights act for 25 years,” Biden started. “We got to the place where we got 98 out of the 98 votes in the United States senate doing it. I have also argued very strongly that we in fact deal with the notion of denying people access to the ballot box…”
Surprisingly, Biden then cut himself off: “I agree that everybody once they in fact…anyway… my time is up.”
Biden had an awful performance, seemed very confused, and wasn’t even paying attention during some points of the debate.
Biden is doing great harm to Obama’s already controversial two terms in office.
Biden not only said he supported abolishing Obamacare — which Obama said was his greatest legislative achievement — the former VP is also being dogged by allegations that he is racist.
Now, all of the 2020 candidates are ripping apart Obama’s legacy in order to attack Biden, and the former VP is not doing anything about it.
