  • 'SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES': Attorney General Vows Full Investigation into Jeffrey Epstein's Death in Custody

Trump also defended his decision on Saturday to retweet an unfounded conspiracy theory from a conservative comedian named Terrence K Williams that Bill Clinton was involved in Epstein's death.

Lawyers for those potential defendants are likely to seize on wording in Epstein's non-prosecution agreement that appears to tie the hands of the entire Justice Department when it comes to indicting co-conspirators, said David Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor in Miami who has followed the case closely.

Admitting that now no one knows what happened to Epstein, Lavine speculated he was suspicious that Epstein had been pulled off suicide watch.

"Additional actions may be taken as the circumstances warrant", Kerri Kupec, a Justice Department spokeswoman, said in a statement.

The 66-year-old financier had been on suicide watch, but apparently the watch was lifted. However, New York City's chief medical examiner has not yet listed an official cause of death after an autopsy was performed, according to the Washington Times. "This is routine practice", Sampson said.

"We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and that demand a thorough investigation", Barr said. That person was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump said he had "no idea" if the Clintons had anything to do with the death. Epstein was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center awaiting trial for federal charges that he operated a sex trafficking ring with underage girls in the early 2000s.

The federal investigation into the allegations remains ongoing, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said.

Epstein was arrested on 6 July on new sex-trafficking charges.

Precaution is being maintained in the deluge-hit states as most rivers are in a spate and water is being released from reservoirs. In Jammu and Kashmir, three members of a family died after they came under a boulder during a landslide in Resai district.

Epstein's death is the latest black eye for the Bureau of Prisons, which was already was under fire over the October beating death of Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger at a federal prison in West Virginia.

"Every single person in the Justice Department - from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer - knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn't be allowed to die with him", Sasse wrote.

The administrative moves took place amid official investigations into Epstein's death and following harsh official criticism of the Bureau of Prisons. Maxwell has accused Giuffre of being a liar.

In a statement provided to BBC News, the organisation's president Eric Young said prison employees who are not correctional officers - such as teachers, nurses, clerical workers - are often made to guard inmates due to a process known as "augmentation".

"We've worked so hard to get here, and he stole that from us, too", she told the newspaper.

Epstein was taken off suicide watch after he allegedly tried to kill himself the first time.

USA lawmakers have demanded that the government hold responsible people who allegedly helped Epstein engage in sex trafficking.

President Donald Trump talks to reporters at Morristown Municipal Airport in Morristown, N.J., Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019. According to court documents, Epstein sexually exploited and abused dozens of under-age girls at his homes in New York City and in Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations.

Before his legal troubles, Epstein led a life of extraordinary luxury that drew powerful people into his orbit.
