Assertions and speculations spread like wildfire. Epstein was murdered. He isn’t dead at all, he was ferreted out of jail and taken to Israel. He killed himself. The video cameras in jail malfunctioned (were turned off on purpose). Epstein paid off guards so he could engineer his covert escape. He’s dead, a victim of the rising Clinton body count. Trump is in the Epstein scandal up to his eyeballs. And so on.
I call your attention to two writers who are digging into Epstein’s seemingly endless, high-level connections. One is Wayne Madsen (Twitter), whose recent article is posted at Intrepid Report: Politics and pedophilia: a demonic mix.
The other is Whitney Webb (Twitter), at MintPress News: Mega Group, Maxwells and Mossad: The Spy Story at the Heart of the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal.
Both these articles delve into Epstein’s international relationships, particularly in, or dedicated to, the State of Israel. Webb’s multi-part series is massive.
These two articles (and others) are written against a background everyone is now familiar with—Epstein’s trove of knowledge about powerful men having sex with his underage girls, and the undoubted blackmail material Epstein possessed that could be used to control such men.
It’s unclear how much of this material would have emerged, in convincing detail, if Epstein’s trial had taken place. Certainly, during the proceedings, the press would have had a field day with it. The recent federal charges against Epstein involved sex trafficking of minors. In bringing evidence in court, it’s entirely possible that specific “customers” would have been exposed, at least by implication, if not directly.
In my non-legal opinion, a great deal of wrangling would have occurred around the issue of naming names of customers. The judge might have ruled that names had to be omitted in the courtroom.
If so, why isn’t Epstein still present in jail awaiting trial? Perhaps in recent months, he had made private threats to name names unless he was somehow taken off the hook. If his powerful cohorts and handlers believed he was becoming unstable,
