According to CNN, Attorney General Bill Barr says he will recuse himself from anything involving the Jeffrey Epstein case.

While in South Carolina, Barr joined a firm that had represented Epstein. Barr's father also hired Epstein to teach at the private Dalton school, despite him not having a college degree.

"I'm recused from that matter because one of the law firms that represented Epstein long ago was a firm that I joined for a period of time," Barr said, according to a NBC News producer.

Some have raised questions about Barr's connection to Epstein.
