BROOKLYN, NY –
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide should never have happened at the facility where he was being detained and claimed the guards have no excuse for not monitoring him more closely.
“It’s a jail rather than a prison. A jail is a place you hold people when they’re awaiting trial. A prison is where you put them when they finally get sentenced. Those are more permanent places,” he said Tuesday on “America’s Newsroom.”
Giuliani added, “There’s absolutely no excuse for this. What happened here, to me, is mind-boggling. It’s impossible to happen. It’s a relatively small facility. This isn’t Rikers Island… with many, many different buildings. One building. Almost everything is within view if you want it to be, of the guards… The guy was a high-risk prisoner, wasn’t he? He’s a guy that there are probably 50 very important people that have a motive to kill him… We know there are some people that are in a lot of trouble because of Epstein. They know who they are. There’s tremendous motive to kill him.”
