Epstein

Like so many others, I’m having trouble taking Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide seriously. Yes, we should, of course, but my word…

Steven Hayward pretty much nailed it on Twitter:

And

That pretty well sums it up, doesn’t it? Everything we know tells us Epstein was a bad man, but how in the world does the main witness in one of the most important cases the government has manage to hang himself. In short, it has been a very long time since the government has encouraged us to have confidence in it. And this event has made it quite a bit worse.

Steven also says this in his article:

Attorney General Barr is asking for an FBI investigation and and Inspector General investigation. Why an IG investigation, too? Maybe he doesn’t trust the Clinton-friendly FBI? (On the other hand, if this IG report takes as long as most of them do to finish, we’ll be dead from global warming before we see it.)

Yep.

Jonathan Turley adds:

The suicide comes a day after the release of documents implicating an array of powerful figures around the world. Epstein catered to friends from Bill Clinton to Prince Andrew. The timing has already caused some to question whether this was a true suicide or an effort to get rid of a man who was becoming a major threat to major players in politics and business. Given the low likelihood of success for Epstein, 66, in his criminal case and the prospect of spending the rest of his life in jail, a suicide attempt was likely. However, that raises the question of how a man who was once on a suicide watch could be allowed the material, let alone the opportunity, for a suicide.

And if I understand the timeline, only a few hours after he was taken off suicide watch. Which doesn’t explain why nobody checked on him for at least several hours that night.

Prison officials say that Epstein was declared dead at 6:30 am. They say the cause was cardiac arrest but reports indicate it was a suicide. Two weeks ago, Epstein was was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

It is the timing that is likely to spur conspiracy theories. Documents released yesterday detail allegations by Virginia Giuffre that she was told to have sex with an assortment of Epstein’s friends, including former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, former U.S. Senator George Mitchell; asset manager Glenn Dubin, modeling executive Jean Luc Brunel, the late MIT scientist Marvin Minsky, Prince Andrew and Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz. The next day, Epstein is dead.

Unless one counts revenge on his so-called friends, it is rather hard to see what Epstein had to live for, looking at a long criminal proceeding and then most likely life in prison, but:

Yet, how could such a high suicide risk be allowed the opportunity for a suicide? At a minimum, a suicide would indicate gross negligence by the prison officials in Manhattan. Much like the murder of Whitey Bulgar at Hazelton, the death would only be possible with an utter lack of competence by correctional management and staff.

This is how huge conspiracy theories start when nothing at all makes sense. Attorney General Barr would be well advised to build a hot enough fire under his subordinates to get some answers rather quickly because I can’t think of anyone who believes the government’s story at this point. All I’m hearing is a disagreement on whether it was the Clinton Crime Family or the Deep State if there is either a distinction or a difference between them.

This is one of those times when justice delayed is decidedly justice denied, and the American people are pretty much fed up with the bullshit.

    Well, me thinks it will serve to close a lot of other mouths. Suicides end in cardic arrest. Dead is dead however the way in this world.
    And whatever the evidence in his safe could be planted through a safe hack. Probably “wiped, with a cloth” though. 🙂

    I used to think I was a fool for believing in conspiracy theories. The fact is, though, that in earthly terms we are caught in a net. Of course, God is able to cut the threads.

    I do get tired of reading all the dumb comments at so many of the sites.
    But here’s one that drew a smile and a laugh from over at AT…

    It is well known that Trump made several trips to Epstein’s Orgy Island. On one occasion he was disguised, in uniform, as a Peruvian field marshall. Another time he went uniformed as a Belgian admiral with a Hitler mustache. Other times he simply “stowed away” in the wheel well of Epstein’s jets (it is known that he preferred the wheel well of the right main gear). What is not as widely known is that rather than slightly post-pubescent young Lolitas, Trump’s partying involved hiring elderly Russian housekeepers to urinate on his bed while he watched. And if he continues to slander the Clintons, Hillary will release the videotapes she has documenting his activities.
