Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel said that an investigation should be done into his death but at the same time his alleged victims, should also get their due justice. It was in his district that Jeffrey conducted most of the crimes. He said:
“The death of Jeffrey Epstein does not end the need for justice for his victims or the right of the public to know why a prolific child molester got a slap on the wrist instead of a long prison sentence,”
More tweets demanding an answer
Massachusetts congressman Seth Moulton aired similar views. He said:
“The investigation into Epstein should continue. We need to know who was involved in his sex trafficking, and the victims deserve justice,”
The news agitated Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA), a member of the Oversight Committee. She said that Jeffrey abused and smuggled a large number of young girls. The law enforcement, prosecutors, and others abetted him in it and looked the other way while he continued to commit the crimes. She wants her committed to investigating the case. She stated:
“Epstein’s crimes were not contained to him. Congress has a duty to ensure all those who played a role in this travesty of justice answer to those crimes. The survivors of Epstein’s exploitation demand and deserve nothing less.”
Democratic presidential candidate and senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) commented that she is unaware of all details adding that the accusations were deeply troubling. She said that she would have liked to see him face the law and get punishment.
One government official also went as far as accusing Hillary Clinton and claiming her role in Jeffrey’s death.
