MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter shortly after news of Jeffrey Epstein’s death broke Saturday morning to theorize about… a Russian connection?

In a series of tweets, Scarborough expressed his skepticism behind reports of Epstein dying from an apparent suicide in his New York City jail cell overnight.

Scarborough went so far to imply that the suicide explanation seemed “predictably … Russian” and “bullshit.”
