Politicians and alleged victims have reacted angrily after Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in a prison cell, with Donald Trump sharing a conspiracy theory about the disgraced financier’s death.
The 66-year-old’s suicide came as he awaited a trial over sex trafficking allegations.Sponsored link
It has been reported that Epstein was not on suicide watch, despite the fact he attempted to take his own life a few weeks ago.
On Twitter, the US president retweeted a right-wing comedian’s unsubstantiated claim surrounding the incident, which suggest Bill Clinton was involved.
But that conspiracy theory was just one of many circulating on the internet, with theories around Mr Trump’s involvement among them.
Both Mr Clinton and Mr Trump have denied being privy to Epstein’s alleged scheme.
Mr Trump admits he used to be an acquaintance of Epstein, but said he fell out with him more than 15 years ago.
