Federal investigators obtained the grand jury subpoenaes while trying to understand what exactly happened leading up to Epstein’s suicide in what CNN reports to be “a new and significant phase in what appears to be a criminal investigation into the workers responsible for Epstein’s detention.”

Epstein was found hanged in his cell in the early morning hours nearly two weeks ago. The multimillionaire financier was awaiting trial on charges that he’d run a sex trafficking ring involving underage girls.

The suicide of one of highest-profile federal inmates was said to have deeply angered top officials at the Justice Department, and investigators with the FBI and the Justice Department’s Inspector General’s Office have been probing the circumstances that led up to it. –CNN

On Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr said that several witnesses “were not cooperative,” and had “required having union representatives and lawyers before we could schedule interviews.” Barr has ordered the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general to probe Epstein’s August 10 suicide. Also under review is a prior attempt from July 23 in which Epstein reportedly told his lawyers that then-cellmate Nicholas Tartaglione “roughed him up.”

Tartaglione has denied hurting Epstein, and recently asked a judge to transfer him out of MCC and into another prison after reportedly receiving death threats from guards – including that there would be a “price to pay” if he talks about Epstein’s death.

Investigators are reportedly focusing on two guards tasked with watching Epstein, who have both been placed on leave in the wake of Epstein’s death. The official story is that they fell asleep on the job. There are also reports that the guards falsified records to show they had checked on Epstein every 30 minutes as required – which, if true could expose them to criminal charges.

In the days since Epstein’s death, reports of mistakes and mismanagement behind the walls of the hulking Manhattan facility have emerged.

Barr has cited “serious irregularities” and a “failure to adequately secure” Epstein by the jail, and has in recent days overhauled the leadership there and at the Bureau of Prisons in Washington. –CNN

Prosecutors hope to learn from the lieutenants in charge of Epstein’s cell block what exactly happened the night he died; whether guards properly conducted their rounds to check on prisoners, and how work was handed off between shifts.

“The fact that this is a grand jury investigation means that they are investigating a specific crime. It tells me that it’s something more than just ‘Let’s pick up the pieces and do a report’ like an inspector general would normally do,” said former federal prosecutor Elie Honig.

The 66-year-old Epstein, who had not been checked for hours before his death, was found unresponsive in his cell after being taken off suicide watch days earlier. He reportedly tied a bedsheet to the top of a bunk bed and swan dove with enough force to break a bone in his neck.

  1. To late to do now, but were toxicology tests given to all of the guards involved. Too many sleeping on duty to not look into whether they were slipped “mickeys”! This is not a conspiracy theory on my part, but an important part of any thorough investigation that is taken.

    • The autopsy of this guy should tell a lot. Were He to (as described above) TAKEN A DIVE off the top bunk, there would be contusions where His body contacted the concrete floor—-I suggest a cover up to explain the multiple broken bones in His neck—-Involvement in a CONSPIRACY that results in murder makes One culpable of that MURDER.

  2. Oh my….The Grand Jury is shaking tree to pacify America. I couldn’t are less about some Pedophile
    getting knocked off…..BUT, I would be interested in the ones that got away. They are the real enemies of “We the People” and most of us already know who they are. Pizzagate?
    Grand Jury is a sham/smokescreen to protect the guilty, & appease the People.

    • George,

      I agree and I know what you mean. If he is dead, then so be it, he got what he deserved whether by his own hand or possibly helped out by others then ,who cares!
      But, its just possible that Epstein’s death/possible suicide was faked to get him into either protective custody or, get him out of hot water. And he was flown or helicoptered somewhere safe while we sort out the details of his faked death and the hoax was perpetrated by the Clintons, the Duke of Winsor Prince Andrew & other high ups in the on going scandal.
      Remember, Prince Andrew visited Epstein when he was imprisioned about 2 to 3 weeks in custody! Maybe just maybe they planned something together. And I wanna know who else of the who’s who was involved too!

  3. Too little, too late. How can they be issuing subpoenas already when cases involving politicians have been going on for months (years)? Disgusting.

  4. The coroner can estimate the time of death pretty close to the actual TOD. If there are reports indicating that guards did a check and those times overlap with the TOD, they’re clearly lying. Too many convenient coincidences in this murder… Cameras malfunctioned, shady ex-cop murdering roommate, the Clinton Clans involvement and their record of suicided individuals. Yeah, Epstein knew he was a dead man walking the moment this new arrest was exposed and it was clear it would not receive the same sweet deal as in Florida!

    • The cameras are the key—-Whom were Those responsible for the security of all the cameras and the recordings? Follow the money trail and convict the conspirators. 30 to Life.

  5. Subpoenas moving quickly in Epstein’s death. Wonder when subpoenas will be issued over F.B.I.and D.O.J. in regards to F.I.S.A. warrants illegally obtained for the political purposes of spying on a candidate and a sitting President? Maybe they haven’t got enough subpoenas printed for distribution and the man power to deliver that quantity?

  6. This is a complete political farce! Nothing will ever come of this investigation and anyone with an ounce of intelligence will realize this to be true. Why does the average intelligent person eat this garbage up as if it were manna from heaven? Every person in this country knows that almost all of the politically corrupt in Washington have had a hand in Epstein’s death. Here is a question that I would like to ask the American voting public. Do you not think that it is high time that we stop swallowing this tripe and get back to trying to get along with each other instead of being a divided country? So What. A pedophile has met his end on this earth. I believe it to be one more evil person has gone to meet his maker and will then be judged according to his deeds on earth. Not to worry though, because of all of the people involved in his death, they too will be found out and judged accordingly. So let us get back to helping one another instead of tearing each other down and taking our beloved country down as well. The Rooster has Crowed!!!

    • Allowing a “contract murder” in a facility such as this make us like China or other socialist GULAGs where nothing comes into the light—–America is either a free country, or, just another despotic sewer/swamp.

  7. Guards asleep while on duty, falsifying logs, camera not working everything primed for Epstein to commit suicide! Second degree murder on the part of the guards. Where did the orders come from and how much were they paid? First one who talks goes free!

    • First one to talk better disappear in a hurry, and watch his back for the rest of his (probably not very long) life.

  8. when the prison guards and employees are corrupt it is the ultimate INSULT to a punishment phase of our Justice system. If they are found out to be corrupt send THEM to Prison and make them pay by sending them to those who they used to oversee IN the system! If they find a prominent citizen responsible for killing Epstein, then that person should be executed publicly for more crimes than can be listed here.

  9. I certainly hope people realize this is nothing more than a distraction from the real criminal story. The one about FISA abuse and a corrupt FBI and DOJ. Probably not, because this whole sex thing is so much more attractive to people. It’s like holding up a ball of shinny foil for a racoon and saying look at this while I swing this hammer down on the back of your head. I amazed at how easy the public is distracted from the real issues.

  10. The Clintons are like Al Capone except their murders are more discrete.
    Al liked to be sensational like in the St Valentines hit of seven men.
    The Clintons are more intelligent and try to make their murders look like suicides.
    While we will never know the real numbers of victims, I think that they are probably similar.

  11. Everyone involved in the mysterious death of Epstein ought to be indicted as accessories to murder. The guards, who said they fell asleep, especially. And then, why hasn’t anyone subpoenaed (sp?) the video tapes, or have they mysteriously stopped working during that time of his death? WE WANT ANSWERS, NO COVERUPS. Hey Chelsea, proud of your mom and dad?

  12. No one is ‘cooperating’ because they are guilty. Duh!
    There is just too much wrong with this episode in history.
    Malfunctioning equipment, sleeping on the job, falsifying records, threatening the cellmate, lawyers who insisted the perv get off suicide watch. Too many high-honcho’s on his little black book list . . .
    Come on! Bill and Hitlery did it AGAIN!
    Anybody with an ounce of brain matter can see that.
    The political power this family cabal has is unlimited. They built their empire on favors & blackmail just like Epstein did. That’s why he and Ol’ Bill got along so well!
    Hitlery knew all about it. She’s the brains in the family.

  13. Epstein had to go. It didn’t matter if it was done in such an unbelievably impossible to swallow manner. Just shows the contempt they have for the general public. They couldn’t care less if we believe the official story. He had to be gotten rid of, and they’ll just lie about the details. Deny, deny, deny.

  14. They need to confirm through DNA, fingerprints and dental records that it is actually Epstein’s body and not just a look alike
