Surprise, surprise. The strange circumstances of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide are now unraveling.
Early this morning, two federal Bureau of Prisons employees were taken into custody. They are expected to be charged with failing to check on Epstein every half hour, as was required, and falsifying their log entries.
Say it isn’t so? You mean maybe there’s something suspicious about Epstein’s untimely demise?
Let’s go through the series of events one more time…
1. Epstein’s first cellmate, ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione, was moved out around July 23rd after Epstein was found on the floor with bruises on his neck. It was unclear how those bruises got there, but Epstein was placed on suicide watch.
2. For reasons still unknown, Epstein was taken off suicide watch on or around July 29th. He was returned to a cell in the Special Housing Unit where he first was housed.
3. He was supposedly given a new roommate, but that person was moved, and nobody replaced him.
4. On the morning of his death, there were supposedly two officers on duty to monitor Epstein. One allegedly had worked four overtime shifts in a week. The other was “augmented” from other duties, which means that person was not appropriately trained.
5. The “officers” were supposed to check on Epstein every 30 minutes, as required by the protocol set after his release from suicide watch. They did not.
6. Per the autopsy report Epstein had a broken hyoid bone in his neck which is seen in people who hang themselves, but more common in those who have been strangled.
Per the Daily Mail, Dr Michael Baden, a forensic pathologist hired by Epstein’s family to observe the autopsy, has claimed the injuries were more consistent with homicide by strangulation than suicide.
He claimed he hadn’t seen the same fractures in a suicidal hanging case in 50 years.
So there’s that.
The Daily Mail also reports, a 31-year-old woman, who claims she was trafficked and sexually abused by Epstein when she was 15, spoke out publicly for the first time on Monday to announce that she is launching a lawsuit against his estate.
During a press conference in Los Angeles, the woman – only identified as Jane Doe 15 – was spotted wearing a bracelet that read: ‘Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself’.
Yeah, well we don’t think so either.
But last night Tucker Carlson, on his nightly Fox News show, brought up a very interesting — and further disturbing — point.
Beginning his commentary with “just so you know the rules in this country” Tucker compared and contrasted the treatment Jeffrey Epstein received throughout his case to that which erstwhile “Trump associate” Roger Stone has received.
Roger Stone is not a billionaire. He did not traffic in underage girls. He did not hobnob with Bill Clinton and HRH Prince Andrew. He was, however, an outspoken Donald Trump supporter.
Tucker explained, “Stone’s main crime was lying to Congress about who he had or had not spoken to about Russia. By the time Stone’s trial began in Washington, the larger scandal that ensnared him had long been debunked.”
Nonetheless, prosecutors “argued that Roger Stone should spend up to 50 years in prison, effectively the rest of his life.”
For a process crime.
It’s a depressing and sobering look at the bigger picture here.
The crimes Epstein and his band of merry associates have committed against underage girls are horrific, and we are barely scratching the surface on how many lives were scarred by the interaction.
Death by any means is justice to an extent, but not if it seals the book of secrets as to whom Epstein’s “customers” were. They must be brought to justice as well.
So far, the same cabal of powerful and wealthy insiders who protected Jeffrey Epstein when he was alive are busily protecting themselves now.
But woe betide you if you’re a lowly Trump supporter. Then you’re dirt.
Bear that in mind, ladies and gentleman. The swamp is very much still alive.
