Sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s private island has attracted much attention because it involves many prominent figures, including countless global elites and celebrities from all walks of life and even former US President Clinton. It is rumored that Chief Justice John Roberts, who had done absolutely nothing about the 2020 presidential election fraud case, had been to Epstein’s island. And another ineffectual American judiciary, the former US Attorney William Barr, who just left the Department of Justice before Christmas, is also intriguely tied to Jeffrey Epstein.

In 1973, at the age of 20, Epstein dropped out of Cooper Union and New York University’s Courant Institute. Without a college degree, Epstein was hired as a tutor at the Dalton School teaching calculus and physics. Dalton School is a well-known private high school in New York City, and the principal at that time was William Barr’s father, Donald Barr. Barr Sr. served as the principal of the Dalton School from 1964 and resigned in 1974 after a disagreement with the school’s executive board. It can be seen that the relationship between the Barr family and Epstein began as early as the 1970s.

Barr Sr. was also a science fiction writer. He once published a science fiction novel called Space Relations: A Slightly Gothic Interplanetary Tale, which tells a story that happened on a planet ruled by an oligarch. The novel has many descriptions of enslaved persons, pedophiles, compulsive behaviors, especially the rape of young girls. The sexual violence and sexual portrayal in this novel happen to have many similarities with Epstein’s sex trade and sex trafficking in reality. Even on eBay, the sellers who sell this novel directly promote the connection between the novel and Epstein in its description.

In 1983, President Reagan nominated Barr Sr. to serve as a member of the National Education Research Council, and his son William Barr also began to emerge in American politics. From 1973 to 1977, William Barr was employed by the Central Intelligence Agency. In the 80’s, William Barr Joined the law firm Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge, but also spent a year working under the Ronald Reagan administration in handling Whitehouse internal legal affairs. From 1989, William Barr served as Assistant Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, and Attorney General in the Bush Sr. administration until he left office in 1999.

After William Barr stepped down as the attorney general of the Bush Sr. administration, from 1994 to 2008, he did corporate legal work for GTE and its successor company Verizon Communications, which made him a multimillionaire. From 2009 to 2018, Barr served on the board of directors for Time Warner. In the meantime, Barr was briefly of counsel to the firm Kirkland & Ellis. From 2010 until 2017, he advised on government law enforcement and regulatory litigation related matters. An interesting coincidence, Kirkland & Ellis is the same firm that represented Epstein in 2008. Court records also show that Kirkland & Ellis had been representing Epstein’s case until 2011, during which time Barr worked at that very firm.

Barr became attorney general for the second time in February, 2019. On August 10, 2019,      Jeffrey Epstein, accused of being a sex trafficker of minors, committed “suicided” and died in his prison cell in Manhattan, New York. Since previously Epstein had attempted suicide in the month prior to his death, he was put on a suicide watch. However, for some unknown bizzard reasons, on the night before Epstein’s death, the suicide surveillance mode was deactivated, so Epstein managed to “hang” himself with a bedsheet, just days after being taken off the suicide watch. The autopsy revealed multiple fractures in Epstein’s neck. It is also worth noting that a few days before his death, his cellmate was conveniently transferred out of the cell. Moreover, according to the latest report of the New York Daily News on the 28th, that man who last shared the prison cell with Epstein also died last month supposedly from the COVID.

Epstein’s suicide raised red flags and caused uproar in the society, and the public challenged how this bizarre incident could even occur inside prison. William Barr, then the US Attorney General, claimed to be deeply concerned and demanded a thorough investigation. Barr stated and I quote, “I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death.”

Despite Barr’s promise back in August 2019 that the FBI and the Office of Inspector General will get to the bottom of what happened, and there will be accountability, until the day Barr left office, he has not delivered and finding on the Epstein’s suicide investigation to the American public. To this today, no one knows who ordered to take this high-profile detainee Epstein off the suicide watch, or who arranged to remove Epstein’s cellmate from his cell, and ultimately the real cause of Epstein’s death remains to be a mystery.
