(Breitbart) – Actor Alec Baldwin claimed that financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was killed by the Russian state, which Baldwin said is now “in charge of everything” as a result of the Trump presidency.
Epstein, who was facing charges of child sex trafficking, was found dead in his cell on Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. The timing of his death, as well as the fact that he had been taken off suicide watch, has fanned multiple conspiracies about whether he was murdered in order to prevent him from ever revealing damaging information on powerful people and politicians.
The Saturday Night Live star added fuel to fire over those conspiracies by arguing Epstein was murdered by the Kremlin.
“The Russians killed Epstein,” Alec Baldwin said on Sunday, “They’re in charge of everything now.”
The Russians killed Epstein.
They’re in charge of everything now.

Baldwin has long been obsessed with the supposed relationship between President Donald Trump and Russia, despite the Mueller report finding no evidence of collusion and Washington imposing various sanctions against the Putin regime.
In May, the 61-year-old comedian warned that the U.S. was “being played” by Russia over a “pee-pee tape” and Trump would soon start a war to divert people’s attention away from it. There remains no evidence of the existence of such a tape nor has Trump made any meaningful steps toward any kind of military intervention.
Some of these conservative trash websites want to thrill you with the headline: BARR DECLARES WAR ON FBI.
This country is being played by Putin.
Over a “Peepee Tape.”#ImpeachTrump

Several Hollywood stars suggested that the Russian government played a role in Epstein’s death.

Epstein suicide. Sure. Seems likely. Probably what happened.
Hey, folks, we’re Russia now. Enjoy it.

Is that the same thing as Putin’d? https://t.co/VtCOA5HqmZ

It is disturbing that a powerful billionaire accused of sex trafficking minors, who was already on suicide watch, has died while in federal custody, his many secrets about other powerful men going with him to the grave. This sounds like something that would happen in Russia, no?

I guess they think a country dumb enough to elect Trump is stupid enough to believe Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide. Or not. Love that they did it on the traditional Friday night/early Saturday morning “document dump” time when they know the fewest people will follow it. pic.twitter.com/GRpCOlh5B1

Federal custody of Epstein was overseen by **these notes here** William Barr. ‘Shady’ doesn’t even begin to describe this. https://t.co/O3Z4RhyXsw

Bill Barr’s DOJ took him off suicide watch. The same Barr who works for Trump. The same Barr who had to recuse in Epstein case in Florida. Tge sane Barr who refuses to recuse himself in NY & who’s father hired Epstein even though unqualified to teach KIDS.

The can of Jeffrey Epstein’s worms has been opened. And they will be crawling all over some very powerful people. Have a nice vacation Mr. President.

Remember the scene in the Godfather? Tom Hagen who talks of Roman traitors to Frankie Pentangeli who then kills himself… life imitating art? Powerful people didn’t want Epstein to talk. I want to find out who.
