Remember when Barr recused himself from the Epstein case?

Because of past family connections to Epstein?

Then changed his mind shortly thereafter?

Someone gave him a talking-to and forced him to un-recuse.

Why was it so important - and to whom - that Barr remain involved?

17. Look at how he's "holding" her hand. He's got a vice-like grip on it and she's not holding his back.

Plus her face looks blank. Nothing there.

21. Wow, Ivanka looks just like...

...an underage Eastern European sex slave. Wonder where daddy ever got the idea to dress her up like that?

12. And who had the power to make it happen in the first place.



"Can you believe the Democrats thought Epstein would talk, Bill?"

"Well. Barring something untoward."

5. Barr was "partially" recused, I guess....

While it was once thought that Barr would be recusing himself from having oversight on the Epstein prosecution, on July 9, it was clarified that Barr consulted with career ethics officials at the department, and concluded that he only needed to recuse himself from the internal Justice Department probe of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, and his involvement of approving a highly controversial no-prosecution deal with Epstein back in the 2008.

Barr did not recuse himself from Epstein’s current prosecution in Manhattan, and is now instructing the Department of Justice’s inspector general to open a probe into the disgraced financier’s death. Before Epstein’s alleged suicide, he was facing 45 years in prison if convicted of conspiracy and sex trafficking dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida.

There is concern over William Barr’s involvement in Epstein’s case, not only for the way he handled Robert Mueller’s testimony over the Russian probe, but because of his personal ties with Epstein himself.

9. Barr and Epstein likely have a decades long personal acquaintance.

Last edited Sun Aug 11, 2019, 05:18 PM - Edit history (1)

Barr born 1950, Epstein born 1950. Edit Epstein born 1953.

Barr's father hired Epstein age 20 (William Barr then 23) to teach math at Dalton School.

15. I don't think Epstein got a college degree.

He may have gotten a degree of STD, but no PhD.

19. That was a mistake by me. Epstein born 1953 Wm Barr born 1950

Point is that Epstein age 20 came to work at Dalton School where Wm Barr's father was headmaster. Wm Barr was then 23 and likely became acquainted with Epstein initially at that times.

22. People kept thinking Barr wanted to work for Trump because of some strong opinion on Laws

and the power of the presidency and other legal shit.

but i think it's more likely that it was all about protecting themselves .
