Sen. Ted Cruz is not happy that former billionaire financier and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell Saturday morning.

As many do, he wants answers to how this was allowed to happen in a federal prison.

His tweet is very similar to the sentiments shared by Attorney General William Barr in his statement released on Saturday.

“Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered.”

The Inspector General and the FBI are investigating.
