Dems slam Trump for spreading Epstein conspiracy

The apparent suicide of disgraced money manager Jeffrey Epstein has prompted investigations, and widespread indignation among lawmakers, lawyers, and Epstein’s alleged victims. It’s also provoked a flood of baseless conspiracy theories - most prominently by the president the United States.

Donald Trump on Saturday retweeted a conservative commentator who said in part that Epstein "had information on Bill Clinton & now he's dead." And Trump’s son complained that Twitter was burying the corresponding hash tag for one that claimed Trump was behind Epstein’s death.

A spokesman for Clinton tweeted this was “Ridiculous, and of course not true — and Donald Trump knows it.

Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?” The financier, who did once count both Trump and former President Clinton as friends, was arrested on July 6 and pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 to 2005.

2020 democratic candidates Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke slammed Trump for claiming his predecessor was involved in a murder coverup.

Citing a city official, New York Times reported on Sunday that New York City's chief medical examiner is confident Epstein died by hanging himself in the jail cell where he was being held without bail, but is awaiting more information before releasing her determination.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr said he was "appalled" to learn of Epstein's apparent suicide in federal custody.

The FBI and the Department of Justice's Inspector General have opened investigations.

Lawyers for several women who say they were sexually abused by Epstein plan to file lawsuits this week against his estate.

A document filed by his lawyers last month listed his total assets at about $559 million, including two private islands and four homes.

One residence, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is worth an estimated $77 million.

Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, said on Saturday that the investigation into conduct described in the Epstein indictment, including the conspiracy count, will continue despite Epstein’s death.
