Breaking: Judge Orders That Case Against Epstein Is Over Following His Death

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a scathing letter to Barr that “heads must roll” after the incident few days after Epstein’s death.

“Every single person in the Justice Department — from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer — knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him,” Sasse wrote.

It seems that we will never find out everything about Epstein’s friend who would have been dragged down with him.

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the sex trafficking case in New York against Jeffrey Epstein to be dismissed following the financier’s death in a Manhattan jail earlier this month.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman signed a “nolle prosequi,” ruling that the case will be dismissed, according to a copy of the document obtained by The Hill.

Judge Richard Berman had said at a hearing on Tuesday that he was legally bound to dismiss the case. Prosecutors said at that hearing that an investigation into Epstein’s alleged crimes would continue, and that the dismissal would not prevent them from charging possible co-conspirators in the future.

Epstein’s lawyers could not immediately be reached for comment on Thursday.

Epstein, a wealthy 66-year-old money manager who once counted U.S. President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton and Britain’s Prince Andrew as friends, was arrested on July 6 and pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking charges involving dozens of girls as young as 14.

Berman had previously said he would allow the criminal case against Epstein to continue until after the disgraced financier’s accusers had a chance to testify in court.

More than a dozen women who accused the financier of sexual abuse shared their stories in a courtroom on Tuesday.
