AG Barr: Epstein’s
death was a
‘perfect storm
of screw-ups’
By MICHAEL BALSAMO
The Associated Press

ABOARD A US GOV-
ERNMENT AIRCRAFT
— Attorney General Wil-
liam Barr said he initially
had his own suspicions
about financier Jeffrey Ep-
stein’s death while behind
bars at one of the most se-
cure jails in America but
came to conclude that his
suicide was the result of
“a perfect storm of screw-
ups.”
In an interview with
The Associated Press,
Barr said his concerns
were prompted by the nu-
merous irregularities at
the Manhattan jail where
Epstein was being held.
But he said after the FBI
and the Justice Depart-
ment’s inspector general
continued to investigate,
he realized there were a
“series” of mistakes made
that gave Epstein the
chance to take his own
life.
“I can understand
people who immediately,
whose minds went to sort
of the worst-case scenario
because it was a perfect
storm of screw-ups,” Barr
told the AP as he flew to
Montana for an event.
Barr’s comments come
days after two correction-
al officers who were re-
sponsible for guarding the
wealthy financier when he

falsifying prison records.

Voice of the people

After reading a commentary by Steve

a subject that I’ve been writing about
for some time. Transparency. At the
council meetings I have attended for the
past several years, it is a cut and dried
process. The “docket” is voted on. I have
never witnessed any questions asked or
explanations giving on anything. I know
it is a boring read, because I try to go
