Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a Manhattan jail cell raised a whole host of red flags.
Many Americans immediately questioned the official story of suicide.
And you won’t believe who this MSNBC host said killed Jeffrey Epstein.
With the collapse of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion – which revealed the story to be a hoax – MSNBC needed a new means to deliver viewers their daily conspiracy theory fix.
The network seized on their opportunity with the death of Jeffrey Epstein.
Officials initially reported his death as a suicide, but the details surrounding his death struck many Americans as suspicious.
Why was Epstein taken off suicide watch if he tried to kill himself on July 23?
And had Epstein actually tried to kill himself in July or was he attacked?
Why did the guards not perform the mandatory cell checks the night Epstein died?
These were just some of the many questions Americans raised about Epstein’s death.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took advantage of the suspicious circumstances and floated the baseless conspiracy theory that the Russians killed Epstein to protect Donald Trump.
“A guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men’s lives ends up dead in his jail cell. How predictably…Russian,” Scarborough tweeted.
“He reportedly tried to kill himself two weeks ago. And is allowed to finish the job now? Bullshit.”
Scarborough added, “Powerful Democratic and Republican figures breathing a huge sigh of relief—as well as a Harvard professor or two.”
Scarborough was not the only MSNBC host or contributor to float a conspiracy theory about Donald Trump or the Russians killing Jeffrey Epstein.
MSNBC contributor former Democrat Senator from Missouri Claire McCaskill also hinted that the Russians may have had a hand in foul play that led to Epstein’s murder.
McCaskill tweeted, “Something stinks to high heaven. How does someone on suicide watch hang himself with no intervention? Impossible. Unless…..”
And “AM Joy” host Joy Reid went so far as to allude that William Barr gave the guards a stand down order to allow Epstein to kill himself or for Epstein’s murderers to carry out the killing.
“Can we say this again? So this facility is run by the Department of Justice, meaning William Barr’s Department of Justice?”
Reid continued, “Donald Trump’s name comes up whenever Jeffrey Epstein’s name comes up and other people, too. He’s no longer a threat to those people because he can’t talk about them anymore.”
Reid only doubled down on her tin foil hat nonsense when Attorney General Barr announced an official investigation into Epstein’s death.
“And yet again we are left to rely on William Barr for the investigation; the man who only does what protects Donald Trump (one of the people Epstein was an embarrassment to); whose father once hired Epstein as a teacher, and who refused to recuse himself.”
Reid continued, “Does anyone trust William Barr to ever tell us what happened to Epstein? If so, on what do you base that trust?”
MSNBC’s conspiracy mongering surrounding Donald Trump and Russian collusion provided a short term sugar rush boost to their ratings.
But when that story fell apart, viewers abandoned the network realizing they had been lied to.
MSNBC risks destroying the channel for good with a new conspiracy theory alleging that the Russians worked on behalf of Donald Trump to kill Epstein so that his relationship with a pedophile never came to light.
