They’ve actually been having an issues there for awhile. He needs to clear house there too.
Attorney General Bill Barr had some more choice words for the Metropolitan Correctional Facility on Monday, two days after Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his jail cell. Reports suggested that Epstein, a prominent financier accused of child trafficking and conspiracy, committed suicide. Barr says he’s gathered some fresh information about the prison’s supposed incompetence, information that has left him “appalled” and “angry.”
“We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation,” Barr said at a national policing conference in New Orleans.
