‘Heads Must Roll’: Sasse Destroys Justice Dept Over Epstein Suicide in AG Letter

Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) blasted the Justice Department in a letter to Attorney General William Barr after pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell via apparent suicide, declaring that “heads must roll.”

In a letter sent to the attorney general on Saturday, Sasse — the junior Nebraska senator up for re-election in 2020 — torched the Department of Justice as having “failed” by allowing Epstein to apparently kill himself and commented that the pedophile’s “co-conspirators” may be thinking they got “one last sweetheart deal.”

“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 added.

The Nebraska Republican went on to say that Epstein’s “previously attempted suicide” should have warranted him being “locked in a padded room under unbroken, 24/7, constant surveillance.”

“Obviously, heads must roll,” demanded Sasse.

Sasse continued on to say that it “should have been abundantly clear” that suicide was not out of bounds for Epstein, as he would have gone to “any lengths to avoid being held accountable for his crimes.”

The Nebraska senator then continued his railing of the Justice Department, pointing out that they “should not have allowed this to happen” as the department was “responsible for Epstein’s custody and prosecution.”

“His death not only deprives his victims of the opportunity to confront him in court and to see him held accountable for his crimes, but also makes it harder to unravel his ring and to hold accountable the many other powerful men who raped and exploited these children,” added Sasse.

On Saturday, Epstein was found dead in his cell in New York where he was being held for federal sex trafficking charges without bail. A source said that the FBI was investigating the apparent suicide.

His suicide is a blessing in disguise perhaps. There is a paper trail and lots of people that can still be indicted. Who knows if Epstein would tell the truth? Let the facts stand and flush out the rest. Epstein saved taxpayers some money.

Fishy, fishy!
If he really IS DEAD, it’s the Clintons!
If he had “a body double”, who knows!

The FBI is not going to get to the bottom of ANYTHING regarding the truth. Their days of fighting crime have been over since the early 1990’s. They are nothing but a cover-up operation for the many criminal politicians in high places. What we’ll hear is going to be what is known as hogwash.

To Phyllis,

Missed the nut again, didn’t you? You really are needy.

The information exposed in the previous trial might have bearing in current investigations. Statutes of limitations aside, IIIRC NY just waived them for crimes of this nature, those exposed before can be exposed again.

Suicide bunch of BS, another Clinton style murder. No padded cell no 24 hour watch. Hope they do a truthful fact based autopsy.
Hope the fbi has that list of pediphiles, if we can trust the Federal Bureau of Incompetency

This article is total bullshit. Sasse is an idiot. AG Barr is a Godsend for the American people, and Sasse’s attacks simply illustrate his need for publicity.

The FBI has photos, notes, and electronic files detailing Epstein’s many victims. Let’s hope they sue his estate into bankruptcy.

More importantly all that evidence may mention some of his co-conspirators, who could be pressured to give up others. Epstein’s 2008 trial had videos and DVDs showing other participants in crime. Why couldn’t they be reused? Why weren’t those persons prosecuted then?
