Fox News host Tucker Carlson left viewers shocked last night after declaring that authorities in New York had no recordings of calls made by former inmate Jeffrey Epstein because they had all been deleted.
“So it looks like the NYPD deleted the recordings of 911 calls from the jail. So we thought well how about about the FBI? We called over to the FBI to say do you have any 911 recordings from the jail, from the federal lockup, and we got no response,” said Carlson on his primetime show.

Speculation has percolated since Epstein’s death in August 2019 that jail officials and former associates of the disgraced pedophile philanthropist murdered him under the guise of a suicide. Carlson questioned why the Department of Justice has failed to reach a conclusion on the matter after three and a half years.
Before he could be brought to trial, Epstein was found dead in his cell from an apparent hanging despite being held under suicide watch. Guards at the jail have maintained that no protocols of his supervision were broken, but DOJ continues to interview those involved and hopes to reach a conclusion soon. Critics have charged that the investigation is under political pressure to avoid implicating any of the powerful associates of Epstein and his co-conspirators.
Epstein was a wealthy financier of Democratic caucuses, especially former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. His gifts to the Clinton Foundation as well as the foundation for Microsoft founder Bill Gates put Epstein in touch with some of the wealthiest individuals in the world who regularly traveled to his private island.
After being indicted on child abuse charges, Epstein and co-conspirators were discovered to have recruited young girls and recruited them for sexual purposes and other acts that the accused maintained her not true and were not known by the Clintons, Gates, and other associates.
