Yes, but so far they're largely unfounded.

This much we know: Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said.

Staff members tried to revive him, but Epstein was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The bureau said Epstein's death was an "apparent suicide," and authorities believe Epstein hanged himself, a law enforcement source said.

The New York City medical examiner's office hasn't released the official manner of death.

But Trump shared a tweet and video from conservative comedian Terrence Williams that claimed -- without evidence -- that former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were responsible for Epstein's death.

The tweet also incorrectly claimed that Epstein died while on suicide watch.
