The death of disgraced pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is still causing controversy to this day.
Millions of Americans suspect foul play to keep Epstein’s client list of rich and powerful men who traveled to his private island secret.
And Donald Trump’s answer about Jeffrey Epstein’s death left Tucker Carlson at a loss for words.
Tucker Carlson’s interview with Donald Trump successfully counterprogrammed the GOP Presidential debate.
Carlson’s sit down with Trump went viral racking up 150 million views on Twitter.
Once again, Trump showed the capacity to surprise.
The media routinely smears Trump as some tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.
But really, when Trump questions the official story – like when Trump said COVID came from a lab or when he said the Hillary Clinton campaign invented the Russia collusion hoax – he’s usually borne out to be correct.
That’s why it was so surprising to see Trump buy into the story that Epstein killed himself.
“Do you think it’s possible that Epstein was killed?” Carlson asked Trump.
Trump admitted there was a possibility someone killed Epstein to make sure Epstein never spilled the beans about who else engaged in sex trafficking underage girls with Epstein, but that Trump believed Epstein killed himself.
But Trump did say that people like Carlson who thought someone murdered Epstein had good reason to think so.
“Oh sure it’s possible. I mean, I don’t really believe it. I think he probably committed suicide. He had a life with, you know, beautiful homes, and beautiful everything and he all of a sudden he’s incarcerated and not doing very well,” Trump stated. “I would say that he did, but there are those people — there are many people believe, I think you’re one of them right, a lot of people think that he was killed. He knew a lot on a lot of people.”
Carlson pressed Trump on this point saying Attorney General Willam Barr lied when he said Epstein committed suicide.
“He was killed, I think,” Carlson pressed. “Look, I’m not a conspiracy person at all. I believe everything I hear. But yeah, the closer you look into it, I mean the Attorney General of the United States — your Attorney General clearly lied about the Epstein death, like why?”
Trump nodded in agreement noting the shoddy security at the Manhattan jail where Epstein died.
The cameras on Epstein’s cell broke down and the backup server did not store any security camera footage.
Trump said he could see both sides of the case.
“Certainly, it wasn’t well done,” Trump answered. “They had no cameras, they had no anything. Everybody was sleeping — a case could be made, look, I’m not gonna get involved in it but I can tell you a case could be made either way. But, it certainly wasn’t the most well-run place.”
Trump also told Carlson that Attorney General Barr was so afraid of Democrats impeaching him that he didn’t run a real investigation into Epstein’s death.
“Barr became so petrified, so frightened of being impeached, they were gonna impeach him, I don’t know if you remember. That’s not a big moment in history. But they said, ‘we’re going to impeach,’ they play a much rougher game the Left — the lunatics and they were gonna impeach Bill Barr and he was petrified,” Trump concluded.
