Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupac added that Barr had appointed James Petrucci, the current warden of the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, N.Y., as acting warden at MCC, pending FBI and Office of Inspector General investigations.
"Today, the Attorney General directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NY 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", DOJ spokesperson Kerri Kupec said.
Speaking Monday to law enforcement officials in New Orleans, Barr said he "was appalled ... and, frankly, angry" to learn of the detention center's "failure to adequately secure" Epstein.
Some left-wing activists accused the president of endorsing - what they call - conspiracy theories that connect Epstein's alleged suicide to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Alexander Acosta, who was the USA attorney in Miami at the time and was later a Trump administration labor secretary - negotiated what has been called a "sweetheart deal" that allowed Epstein to avoid federal prosecution for alleged crimes against more than 30 children, in favor of his 2008 guilty pleas to two prostitution-related felonies in Florida state court.
The Justice Department says the warden of another facility in upstate NY has been named the acting warden at MCC.
