Republican Senator John Kennedy: Christmas Ornaments and Jeffrey Epstein ‘Don’t Hang Themselves’

Republican Senator John Kennedy has claimed that Jeffrey Epstein did not hang himself. The billionaire sex offender was found dead in his prison cell, while an autopsy concluded he had committed suicide. There are many conspiracy theories about Epstein’s death, but it is very odd to hear a senator share them.

Kennedy made the remarks during a Senate hearing broadcast on CSPAN.

“How can I put this,” Kennedy began. “Christmas ornaments, drywall and Jerry Epstein – name three things that don’t hang themselves.”

Kennedy was obviously referring to Jeffrey Epstein.

“That’s what the American people think,” he said. “That’s what the America people think and they deserve some answers.”

Kennedy was questioning the Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons Kathleen Sawyer. He asked Sawyer to take a message to the people who know what happened to Epstein.

Kennedy is a strong supporter of President Donald Trump.
