White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday Aug. 11, addressed President Trump’s retweet about conspiracy theories on the death of financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, saying on “Fox News Sunday” that he “wants everything to be investigated.”
Conway was responding to a question from Fox’s Bill Hemmer about Trump’s retweet of a post blaming, Epstein’s death on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton.
“There is some unsealed information implicating some people very high up. … I’m not saying anything beyond that. But I will say that there’s always this rush to say, ‘We need transparency, we need accountability,’ when it involves fictional accusations like collusion with Russia to swing an election,” she said.
She also pointed out that Attorney General William Barr has opened an investigation into the apparent suicide, but said she couldn’t elaborate much further on the details of the investigation.
“The attorney general took action immediately when he learned of the death of Jeffrey Epstein and there is an active investigation,” Conway said. “I think those victims should have justice and they’ve been looking for justice for many, many years.”
“I think that this was the ultimate macabre final episode to a man who clearly was an evil monster doing terrible things to young girls,” she added.
Conway said that despite the millionaire financier’s death, his crimes and those linked to them will continue to be investigated.
“This seems to be very concrete in that Jeffery Epstein has done some very bad things over a number of years, and so let’s continue to investigate that,” she said. “I don’t think that somebody’s crimes and the accountability for that necessarily perishes with them.”
