Yesterday it was reported that the July 23rd security footage of Jeffrey Epstein’s first alleged suicide attempt in his prison cell, which Epstein and his lawyers said was an attack by murderous cellmate Nick Tartaglione, was somehow lost.
As the footage of Epstein’s eventual death two weeks later was reported to not exist due to ‘camera malfunctions,’ reports in alternative media about the first suicide attempt (or attack) having no footage went viral.
Today, as if in reaction to that fervor, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold wrote a letter to Judge Kenneth Karas stating the US government had miraculously recovered the tapes.

To quote Tartaglione’s attorney, ‘we look forward to seeing it.’
