Epstein guards expected to face criminal charges this week: report

Source: The Hill

Two of the correctional officers who were guarding Jeffrey Epstein when he killed himself are expected to face federal criminal charges this week, the Associated Press reported Monday.

The guards are expected to be charged as early as Tuesday with falsifying prison records, two people familiar with the matter told the AP. These would be the first charges associated with Epsteinís death.

Federal prosecutors speculate that the guards did not check on Epstein every half-hour as required and faked log entries to say they did. The guards had rejected a plea bargain the federal prosecutors had offered, the AP reported Friday.

Both guards were reportedly working overtime due to staff shortages, and both have been placed on administrative leave while the FBI and Justice Departmentís inspector general investigates.

2. If you're going to claim Epstein was killed...

...then the guards were involved so they should be indicted anyway.

3. Are you claiming they don't know how he died?

Because I don't know how anyone can know that, yet. If pressure is on them and they know something, they might turn honest.

5. I think he was a coward who was allowed (however) to escape justice.

I expect this is going to blow the hell up in a lot of low information RWers faces. As usual.

7. Wasn't Epstein's death not long after Bill Barr visited the federal lock up and when both ....

... security cameras went bad?

I think the guards were all but told something like, "Nice house and family be a shame if anything
happened to 'em."
