After a weekend insinuation that Russia had something to do with millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s death, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough brought up lack of oversight by President Trump and Attorney General William Barr on his show Monday morning.

Epstein, 66, was found dead Saturday in what officials described as an apparent suicide. Given his powerful stature and ties to wealthy politicians, conspiracy theorists seized on the moment with some accusing the Clinton family of being involved and others blaming Trump. Scarborough Monday compared the financier’s death to a mafia hit and then placed some of the blame on Trump and Barr.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is what we did see in mob cases,” Scarborough said. “It makes no sense. There’s no way that the Justice Department should have left this man sitting in that jail cell by himself and there is no explanation that the attorney general, there’s no explanation the Bureau of Prisons can give.

“There’s no explanation that anyone can give to explain why he was and whether that launches a million conspiracy theories or not, this attorney general and this president have a lot to answer for,” he added.

Scarborough first appeared to blamed the Russians after news first broke of Epstein’s death on Saturday morning.

“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,” he wrote.

“He reportedly tried to kill himself two weeks ago. And is allowed to finish the job now? Bullshit. Powerful Democratic and Republican figures breathing a huge sigh of relief—as well as a Harvard professor or two,” Scarborough added.

Sunday, Scarborough backed on his blaming the Russians. He tweeted, “Dear Russians, if you are watching, I do not think you killed Jeffrey Epstein. But you did screw us in the 1972 Olympics basketball final.
PS—Thank you for helping us win World War II. And for Tolstoy. He’s good.”

In a new Twitter post on Monday, Scarborough blamed Epstein’s death on the Justice Department, tweeting, “Bipartisan outrage is rising over Epstein’s inexplicable death. How could the Justice Department have allowed that to happen? Republicans and Democrats want to know.”
