Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Provokes a Swirl of Conspiracy Theories



GUEST: Jeet Heer, national-affairs correspondent at The Nation. His latest article is entitled, "Epstein’s Death Demands Investigation, Not Conspiracy Theories"

BACKGROUND: The New York Times this week published an op-ed entitled, "Jeffrey Epstein and When to Take Conspiracies Seriously." The lengthy piece attempted to say that, "Sometimes conspiracy theories point toward something worth investigating. A few point toward the truth."

In the immediate aftermath of Epstein's death President Trump himself immediately promoted a conspiracy theory that the Clintons were involved.
