Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 10, 2019

Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in his jail cell in New York City, ABC News reported Saturday. The wealthy financier and sex offender was found dead in his Lower Manhattan jail cell, where he was awaiting trial for federal sex trafficking charges.

Epstein's death will most certainly be feted in uncountable locales all over the world since it appears to mean that his untold secrets and acts will be buried along with him.

However, my heart goes out to all the women who were seeking to have their stories told and their exploitations confirmed. Anyone who watched The Wire might now wonder how a man who already tried to commit suicide wasn't on 24-hour surveiled suicide watch. Very suspicious.

There are reports now that Epstein may have been taken off suicide watch in recent days. It's also reported that he hanged himself.

Being on suicide watch means that he wouldn't have had sheets or anything that could be fashioned into a hanging device. Obviously, he found a way to successfully do so.

Jeffrey Epstein Found Injured in NYC Jail Cell

Ex federal prosecutors are saying that because of the circumstances Epstein's death will likely be investigated. It's not a conspiracy that Epstein was connected to a host of powerful, connected, influential people who stand to lose quite a lot if they're implicated in nefarious activity with him. To state the obvious isn't conspiratorial, it's matter of fact. People had a vested interest in Epstein keeping their secrets even as he faced life imprisonment.

If there is an investigation, so be it due to the magnitude of the issues surrounding and involving Epstein, as long as it's pursued for the purposes of justice and not outrageous post mortem persecution nor cover up.

I have little doubt that Epstein was a coward due to the manner he allegedly used others to feed his perversions. But many people had deep interests in what Epstein knew and how he might have chosen to leverage that information if he chose to do so. Now those people are breathing a lot easier for the moment, if not forever.

A completely legit non-political question

Does this shield all of the people who might have been implicated in his various crimes since the investigation was into HIS crimes? Are the materials that have not been taken as evidence already unavailable now?

Any physical evidence is still there, but it will be a harder to authenticate it, and obviously any testimony that would have come from Epstein will not come.

A lot of rich and powerful people benefit from Epstein's "suicide." The people making light of those who question the circumstances surrounding his death are literally doing the bidding of oligarchical pedophiles. Nulli, you need your head examined.

Epstein death does NOT preclude federal invesitgators and prosecutors from continuing to investigate any Epstein co-conspirators or anyone who covered up crimes he committed.

I'm not normally conspiratorial, but Epstein was supposed to be in NY State's custody before the Drumpf DOJ stopped the transfer in somewhat extraordinary fashion. Now I wonder how much of the evidence DOJ has gathered will simply disappear. The only people who know what was recovered are the case agents. Would not be hard for Barr to lean on someone in order to black hole that stuff, or for it to go missing from an evidence room and an electonic list. I don't trust Barr as far as I can throw that lard ass.

The sitting President of the United States was friends with a billionaire who ran a pedophila ring, who just died under mysterious circumstances. His supporters have immediately pivoted to "but clinton, but vince foster, but but but but" instead of just being non pieces of ---- for once in their lives and saying "wow this is crazy, the FBI must get to the bottom of this immediately."

I don't ignore any of them. Anyone connected to Epstein needs to be looked at and charged wherever possible. But nobody in here who supported Clinton nearly 30 years ago is calling people who question the circumstances of Epstein's death "conspiracy theorists."

#75 | Posted by JOE at 2019-08-10 01:21 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

Epstein killing himself is something that should not and could not happen (without assistance).

Even without a previous suicide attempt. The charges he faced and his notoriety warranted a 24 hour suicide watch. A past attempt should result in an automatic 24 hour suicide watch.

So that leaves either one of the following by prison authorities:

1. Criminal neglect
2. Turning a blind eye
3. Active participation in Epstein's death

The first would warrant, at a minimum, everyone in the chain of command being removed from office.

The second and third would warrant charges against some and removal from office for the remainder of those in the chain of command.

It's natural to suspect that Epstein was murdered simply because the lives and careers of some powerful, well connected people were about to come crashing down. (and still could). There's plenty of motive there.

It's just as possible that Epstein reached the end of his rope and was terrified of what lay in store for him. He was a good candidate for suicide or murder no matter how you look at it.

I would never trust any investigation conducted by AG Barr or any agency he lorded over.

That means we're probably never going to know the truth.

I think that you are 100% correct, but this isn't the first time someone has committed "assisted" suicide in NYC jails, so I fear that repercussions will be minimal at best.

While the identities of J. Doe and John Doe #1 were kept from the public, the Judge in this case knows their identities, both live in NYC. Coincidence? Maybe, but any investigation should start with them.

Only ONE of Epstein's known associates has the kind of stroke with the DOJ to get this done. Why did Barr initially recuse himself from this case, and the a couple of days later unrecuse? What happened in that time? The FBI served search warrants at Epstein properties. Hmmmm, what did they find that Barr would take the unusual step of unrecusing himself and then take the extraordinary step of blocking Epstein's transfer of custody to NY State. We know that Barr will go to pretty much any length to protect BLOTUS. This smells like Combover Quisling's diaper!

This is either another colossal screw up by the @realDonaldTrump Administration, or something nefarious happened. @HouseJudiciary Committee has oversight over the Fed Bureau of Prisons. Let's hope @TheJusticeDept won't obstruct Congress from looking into the death of Epstein.

The usual partisan folkx have all made comments here about this benefitting one side or the other, but here's a fact:

At this point AOC, Bernie, Ted Cruz and Mark Meadows could put out a joint statement right now and they'd all be the same.

The absence of justice for children being sexually abused and trafficked by the rich and powerful is just disgusting.

Statement Of Manhattan U.S. Attorney On The Death Of Defendant Jeffrey Epstein

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: "Earlier this morning, the Manhattan Correctional Center confirmed that Jeffrey Epstein, who faced charges brought by this Office of engaging in the sex trafficking of minors, had been found unresponsive in his cell and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter of an apparent suicide. Today's events are disturbing, and we are deeply aware of their potential to present yet another hurdle to giving Epstein's many victims their day in Court. To those brave young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you, and our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment – which included a conspiracy count – remains ongoing.

We continue to urge anyone who feels they may be a victim or have information related to the conduct in this case to please contact 1-800- CALL FBI."

Not buying it. Billionaires don't just commit suicide.

He had the money and means to fake his own death. Too convenient.

Alex Jones aka Bill Hicks probably gave him some pointers.

Well hello, seems like you are confused, surely you're referencing Bill Clinton's 28 trips aboard the Pedo Express and visits to Epstein's pedo island.

Are there flight logs of Trump aboard Epstein's plane?

This is easily a both parties issue, unless you prefer to be blind, in that case have a good evening.

This is not a BOTH PARTIES issue. Only one of epstein's former associates currently has the power to thwart any investigation into him. And we've already seen the attorney general will ruin his own reputation and credibility to defend trump.

A 2016 HuffPost investigation found that suicide is almost entirely preventable behind bars.

"People often say, ‘Well, if somebody wants to kill themselves, they're going to kill themselves,'" Margo Schlanger, a law professor at the University of Michigan who specializes in criminal justice, told HuffPost at the time. "That's false. If you run a jail with an appropriate degree of suicide prevention, you get almost zero."

What's not so obvious is that the pictures of him in a gurney were photoshoped.
His head is out of proportion. The original pictures were taken from EMT files.

I'm not so sure he was killed. Maybe shipped off to Israel and given a new identity.

Is there any way to confirm the body? Epstein worked for Mossad, I highly doubt they would allow him to be murdered.

His island has intense security, I'm certain there is something going on there as well.

The "officer" who took the vault contents from NY was wearing a mask, unlike all of the other police. Why is that?
