Editor's note 8/15/19

 President Trump thinks it must have been a conspiracy that allowed Jeffrey Epstein to escape suicide watch to kill himself. It’s true, and here’s more. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has not had a permanent director since May 2018, and the bureau is seriously understaffed. The Metropolitan Correctional Center, where Epstein was housed, is functioning with 70 percent of the needed correctional officers. The Trump administration’s 2019 budget proposed cutting more than 1,000 Bureau of Prisons positions, while projecting an increase in the prison population. It’s a conspiracy of irresponsibility, and Trump is making it worse. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
