Now, Epstein’s death comes as a shock as it came the day after a trove of court documents was unsealed, providing new details about Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking with several high-powered men.
Presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that his retweet was simply Trump “changing the conversation.”
“This is another example of our president using this position of public trust to attack his political enemies with unfounded conspiracy theories and also to try and force you and me and all of us to focus on his bizarre behavior,” O’Rourke told CNN’s Jake Tapper.
O’Rourke’s fellow presidential candidate, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), also blasted the “recklessness” of Trump’s retweet on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“It’s the same tactics and same language not just as white supremacists, but of the Russians, if you look at the intelligence reports of how they’re coming at our democracy.” Booker went on to say, “He’s been using the Clintons as a means for a lot of this false accusations this is a nation now where we’ve seen horrific acts… people’s lives being threatened because this president whips up hatred this is a very dangerous president we have right now,” he added.
The Clinton’s even had their spokesman Angel Ureña speak out to respond to Trump’s retweet by writing “Ridiculous, and of course not true – and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?”
