President Trump included fuel to the conspiracy theories surrounding multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide on Saturday when he retweeted a post that indicated previous President Costs Clinton was linked to Epstein’s death.
The tweet came from self-described comic Terrence K. Williams who echoed numerous on social networks in recommending a connection in between the Clintons and Epstein, who formerly was an associate of the previous president.
” Passed Away of SUICIDE on 24/ 7 SUICIDE SEE? Yeah right! How does that occur,” the tweet read, together with a photo of Epstein and among the Clintons. ” #JefferyEpstein had information on Expense Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending however we understand who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised.”

Trump’s tweet came shortly after Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., pressed back on the “immediate rush to spread conspiracy theories about someone” in another political celebration.
Williams’ video argued that “for some odd reason, people with info on the Clintons end up dead and they normally die from suicide.” “C’mon now,” he continued incredulously on the video.
The Associated Press reported that Epstein had actually been positioned on suicide watch after an occurrence last month in which Epstein was discovered with bruising on his neck, though it has actually never ever been made clear whether those injuries were the outcome of a suicide effort or an attack by a fellow inmate. However, a Bureau of Prisons spokesperson informed the New York Post Saturday that Epstein was not on suicide watch at the time of his death and AP reported he had been removed suicide watch at the end of last month.
The well-connected financier was prosecuted last month on federal sex trafficking charges and dealt with up to 45 years in jail.

On Saturday, Trump’s Justice Department revealed it would pursue an examination into Epstein’s death. ” I was horrified to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was discovered dead early today from an obvious suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious concerns that need to be responded to,” Chief law officer William Barr said.
” In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have actually talked to the Inspector General who is opening an examination into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
