Fox News host Jeanine Pirro isn’t one to mince words — and when it comes to the reported suicide in jail of alleged sex trafficker and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Pirro has made it clear that she isn’t ready to accept the “official” story.
Pirro revealed in an exclusive interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight that she has a lot of unanswered questions left on Epstein’s death — and she was even open to speculation that Epstein may not have ended his own life.
Not buying it
In the nearly 30-minute interview, Pirro touched on her latest book, the “Deep State” plot to take down President Donald Trump, and her thoughts on some of the top Democrats fighting for the chance to face off against Trump in 2020.
About two-thirds of the way through the interview, however, the topic shifted to Epstein’s death — and Pirro wasted no time in pointing a speculative finger at Epstein’s former cellmate, a disgraced New York City police officer indicted for a quadruple murder.
Pirro said she believes Epstein’s cellmate was actually the perpetrator of an assault against Epstein in late July that was initially reported as an unsuccessful suicide attempt but has since come under more scrutiny. With that in mind, the judge, who hosts Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox on Saturday nights, had a hard time buying the medical examiner’s official determination of suicide.
“Epstein’s cellmate, on July 23, when [Epstein] allegedly tried his first attempt at suicide, is a guy named Nicholas Tartaglione — who is a former cop from Westchester when I was a DA in Westchester,” Pirro told Breitbart. “And he’s the kind of guy who would not be beyond flapping someone that he thought was a pedophile or rat.”
Pirro went on to note that “Tartaglione has been indicted and is in jail for the alleged murder of four individuals. His lawyer denies that he did it, but Epstein said, ‘This guy tried to kill me,’” the judge continued. “So I want you to match that up with the fact that he was out of the suicide unit within six days, OK?”
Pirro said “it appears to” her “that quite possibly, maybe he [Epstein] didn’t try to commit suicide, maybe he was not depressed, and maybe he was a victim of an assault. Because I don’t know anyone who snaps out of a serious depression where you attempt to take your life in six days. And so, that kind of leads me to believe that there was not an attempted suicide on July 23,” the judge added.
“Now fast-forward — now what we’ve got is a mess that is so screwy where the cameras aren’t working, his cellmate has moved out, everybody’s asleep, we’ve got non-corrections officers, and now we’ve got a medical examiner who comes in and says, ‘Ah, it’s suicide,'” she remarked, hinting at some of the troubling details surrounding the 66-year-old’s sudden death that just don’t add up.
So many questions, so few answers
Pirro then pointed to her career as a prosecutor when referencing a report that Epstein’s hyoid bone in his neck had been broken during his death, an injury that can occur in suicides by hanging, but is more common and prevalent in homicides by strangulation. That pertinent fact — as well as the quick announcement on that conclusion even with multiple probes still open on the matter — gave the Fox host pause in accepting the Epstein’s death as a definite suicide.
“We don’t know why the cameras weren’t working. We’ve got corrections officers that we know are not speaking. We also know that there were people asleep,” Pirro said. “Were they really asleep? Who can corroborate that? Something that might look like a suicide, until you’ve got all the circumstantial facts surrounding it, you should put ‘pending’ until all the facts are known. And [the medical examiner] didn’t do that. What’s the rush?”
Still, Pirro says, “I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I really don’t care. I don’t know who killed him or if anyone killed him, but I know my business and what I know is that there was a rush here. On a case that could go either way, you do not rush the way she rushed to get out a decision because any one of those other investigations can indicate that there was foul play here.”
