‘Blood On Their Hands’: Here’s Who An Epstein Attorney Is Blaming For His Death

Published

on

The media, politicians and the courts are to be blamed for Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide, one of his attorneys said Saturday.

Marc Fernich, an attorney for the late multimillionaire found unresponsive in his jail cell Saturday, said he was outraged and called out a “hysterical” press, “overzealous” lawyers and “pandering politicians” in a statement to Fox News.

“I speak as an outraged citizen and defense lawyer, not as a representative of Jeffrey Epstein’s defense team,” Fernich said. “There seems plenty of blame to go around for this unthinkable tragedy.”

The 66-year-old financier was arrested July 6 for charges related to allegedly sex-trafficking minors in New York after previously pleading guilty in 2008 to two counts of prostitution, one with a minor, in Florida. He had been denied bail and denied house arrest after a judge said that he was a flight risk.

Epstein had been on suicide watch after being found injured in his cell July 25. It is not officially confirmed whether he was still under suicide watch before his death Saturday.

Fernich said he blamed prosecutors “bent on locking up a presumptively innocent man posing no real danger or flight risk,” as well as “jailers who appear to have recklessly put Mr. Epstein in harm’s way” for his client’s death.

Taking a swipe at the media, Fernich said he also blamed the “breathless reporters” who were “clamoring to recharge Mr. Epstein with dated crimes.”

He called for a full investigation into Epstein’s death. Attorney General William Barr also said Epstein’s death “raises serious question” and called for an investigation.

“All these actors appear to bear some responsibility for this calamity. All seem to have a share of Mr. Epstein’s blood on their hands. All should be ashamed of their behavior,” Fernich added.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    Bill KKKlinton and the rest of the DemoKKKrats are nothing more than modern day Ku Klux Klan Members without the white hoods.

  • Shotzy says:

    He’s placing blame in the wrong direction….. enough said.

  • Gerald Cline says:

    BS…! #Clinton/murder.inc assassinated Jeffrey Epstein. We all know it….

  • Thelastpresident says:

    Why should this lawyer Mr. Fernich protect the Clinton’s?

  • Gary schuy says:

    We all know who’s behind all this. He made the Hierarchy of the Democrats look bad. New York always was the Hotbed for the Democrats and their Scandals. They had to shut him up.

  • Chris says:

    Hes a damn sex offender and a pedophile who shouldve been dead long ago. Good riddence. Theres a special place in hell for this S.O.B.

    • william Souther says:

      Right, right. We all agree on THAT! However, is it right that the people who fueled that demand get to skate, scott free? This was going away for life either way…but all the dirty, sick, elitists who would have been taken down with him…are now off the hook.

      • jj says:

        You can say & believe what you want, but the truth is; Slick Willie & Hitlery ARE being investigated, you’re just not hearing about it. Haven’t you ever heard of the “ELEMENT OF SURPRISE?” Trust & believe that they will be hanging until they stop twitching. Military Tribunals are going on right now. Trump is taking down A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT OF PEOPLE, WORLDWIDE! Stop being so impatient, do you know everything that’s going on? NO! All you doom & gloomers need to quit. I guess you want some of them slipping through the cracks. It’s a VERY, VERY BIG OPERATION! Think about it, do you want the enemy knowing what you’re doing behind the scenes? WELL? DO YA?

        • Doug says:

          If Hillary and Bill were being investigated it would be all over Twitter by now

          • GL says:

            No, I don’t think it will be all over twitter, or anywhere. I really believe it’s being done but we aren’t told anything. All hush, hush. Why would the investigators want it known they are working on all these crooked politicians? Clinton’s will go down. I just know it.

    • Marilyn says:

      Why are they worried about it? It’s saving the taxpayers a lot of money and having to hear about it anymore. Nobody to blame but himself.he did the crimes and he made the noose. Now he’s where he should be.

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    I find it extremely odd, while under suicide watch, no one was apparently watching. Was a guard paid off and told to look the other way? I hope they’ll investigate the guards!

  • Craig says:

    Sounds like Mr. Fernich is trying to not be on that suicide list.

  • STEVE says:

    FOLKS…..IF YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT LAWYERS…..JUST REMEMBER THIS……IF THEY GET “PAID” BY THEIR CLIENTS, THEY WILL “SAY” OR “DO” ANYTHING….LEGAL OR NOT….MOST LAWYERS “FEED OFF THE BOTTOM” LIKE CATFISH…..JUST REMEMBER THAT

  • Doris says:

    No matter what crime a person is accused of in this country, he is innocent until proven guilty. We demanded it for Judge Kavaugnah and no one is above the law. We know nothing until an investigation. A guard or someone on the inside could have hated him enough to kill him. I haven’t even seen how he committed this “suicide”. We all can have suspicions, but that doesn’t make them true. So Pipe Down!

  • Gene says:

    Yeah, he committed suicide after he was beaten to death. His girlfriend will be the next one that will turn up dead. Isn’t it funny that the Clinton’s never get caught? Their names have been associated with so many untimely and unnatural deaths yet they never get investigated.

  • william Souther says:

    How about we see proof of this guy’s death…so we can eliminate the possibility that he has been whisked off to FedWitPro!?? That asking too much???

    • Errol musk says:

      Very good point, but forget it. Too many on the Clinton payroll.

    • Phil Osborne says:

      Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but I want to know if the guy they found unresponsive was someone switched. A worker at the facility advises a van showed up at 4 AM and a bit later Epstein was not in his cell…but they founds someone there at 6:30 or so… Hope they did a DNA test to be sure it was Epstein…

  • ESR says:

    I am surprised they did not blame President Trump!!!

  • JDP says:

    If you expect the so-called news media to feel shame for anything you will be waiting a very long time for any sign. Hell freezing over comes to mind.

  • chris says:

    wow, he didn’t even mention Trump’s name???? But, is Epstein really dead though????

  • stevor says:

    epstein being dead is LAUGHABLE. Sure, the fellow pedophiles want him to be unable to rat them out but I’m betting that Epstein had an “insurance” policy whereby if he died somebody who was holding all the evidence would leak it so the pedophiles let him do a “Tim McVeigh” and pretend to die but really go to some remote island and is now sipping drinks with little umbrellas.

    • Errol musk says:

      Yes. Epstein would not be so foolish as to not have an ‘insurance policy’ whereby “if anything happens to me I have someone who will spill the beans”. The dumbest moron would do that.

  • Nancy Sanders says:

    We all know he didn’t commit suicide. We may be small-town folk and not very bright according to the Clintons, but we have enough brightness to know his death wasn’t natural, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out.

  • Keren says:

    Anyone who is a witness for the prosecution of Epstein should have immediate 24 hour protection.. This was no accident. Until we hear the REAL results for cause of death, we need to hold out. The forensic examination of the body will decide. It is evident when a person is “hung” (strangled) or when they hang themselves. Although with the history of witness suddenly dying/committing suicide, perhaps we’ll never know. There are those saying that the body removed from the cell was NOT Epstein, and the ambulance that took him away was unmarked, no video recording, and no license tags….. Lots of questions that only time will tell…..

    • Errol musk says:

      Very very good point. There’s a huge possibility that a homeless person was taken out and replaced Epstein. But for say $200 000 dollars most people, guards, doctors, etc will do anything, sorry to say.

    • Gayle says:

      I also read an article from a former inmate of the same prison said there is NO way he could have committed suicide, based upon the layout of the inmate’s rooms.

  • Panhead says:

    clintonbodycount for the regime is an America knows all to well it death penalty! to have incriminating proof against the Dem/Lib party, you will soon be a statistic, an incurable statistic,,the regime waste no time sending you to the other side.

  • David says:

    The only unthinkable tragedy is that the scumbag did not get a chance to testify against all the other scumbags that were abusing little girls. Otherwise it saved the court costs and prison expenses

  • Errol musk says:

    BS He was murdered. we aren’t that dumb please.

  • Buffalo Billl says:

    Everybody knows it was the Clintons doing what they do best. Killing anyone that can expose them and the truth behind their lies.

  • Cheryl Detar says:

    “There seems plenty of blame to go around for this unthinkable tragedy.” REALLY? Unthinkable tragedy? Wonder if his victims feel that way?

  • DPB says:

    Another suicide that protects Hill and Billy

  • Stephen Russell says:

    Blame elites: DC CA NY alone for demise aside courts, 2 ALL blame

  • Clifford L. Cake says:

    Epstein’s “suicide” was the first bi-partisan act of Congress in 20 years.

  • Aline says:

    This was NOT a tragedy, fernich! It was a BLESSING to rid of an evil piece of crap! Now, 9.3 million to go!

  • jimmie boswell says:

    there, are too many who wanted him dead to not investigate this. nor is the lifespan of incarcerated pedophiles, that great and their are people with big bucks involved. nor has their been released, the cause of death or verification of a body.

    he, should of been on an attempted murder watch also. he even had enough money, to buy his way out and flee the country.

  • Don says:

    His death isn’t any closer than Supreme Court Judge Scalia’s death being tied to the Clinton’s. The 100 or so are really just a coincident. Like the sperm on ML dress!

  • Gayle says:

    You would this guy was a snowflake, blaming everyone ELSE for Epstein’s death. I guess the fact he committed multiple horrendous crimes doesn’t mean HE is responsible?

  • Dawn C says:

    His attorney calls it an “unthinkable tragedy” There are many of us who beg to differ with that opinion.

  • Beverly Arnold says:

    According to article in today’s WSJ, Epstein’s attorneys requested he be removed from suicide watch.

  • The Deano says:

    They should have nailed his nuts to a chair and thrown him in the river.
