Jeffrey Epstein may be dead, but the interest in his sexual abuse and child trafficking case – along with its implications for bold-faced names in politics – won’t be going away anytime soon.
The stinky fact that Epstein was left alone in his cell, which wasn’t supposed to have any equipment to hang himself left him dead of hanging is only going to keep the questions coming. We are just learning that his cellmate was removed from the cell before the suicide took place.
"In addition, the jail had transferred his cellmate and allowed Mr. Epstein to be housed alone in a cell just two weeks after he had been taken off suicide watch, a decision that also violated the jail’s normal procedure, two officials said." #Epstein https://t.co/52dKM6v8NI

Officers should have been checking on Epstein, who was being held in a special housing unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, every 30 minutes, and, under normal circumstances, he also should have had a cellmate, according to the person familiar with the matter and union officials representing facility employees.
But a person who had been assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday, and — for reasons that investigators are still exploring — he did not receive a new cellmate, the person familiar with the matter said Sunday night. That left Epstein, who had previously been placed on suicide watch, alone and unmonitored — at least in the hours before his death — by even those officers assigned to guard him.
The person familiar with the matter spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation.
The revelations are sure to increase scrutiny of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a high-rise facility in Manhattan where Epstein, 66, was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday while he was awaiting trial on new, federal allegations that he sexually abused dozens of young girls in the early 2000s. After being found, he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. [Washington Post]
Half of the nation speculated that he would be silenced somehow. Choked on a piece of chicken, and the guards would be looking away for a minute. From the minute he was arrested, all knew that he would never make it to trial. The next thing to happen will be his little black book. It is going to disappear or get burned up in a car fire, or other.
They should be looking for any “unusual” financial transactions in the financial accounts of the guards who were on duty during the time in question.
The guards should be at the bottom of the list while their supervisors and anyone higher than them should be top choice to be questioned and scrutinized. I wonder how long before all of those start to disappear?
The number of steps that had to happen to cover this murder boggle the mind! I don’t believe in coincidence, especially when so many High Profile people stand to be implicated. Watch these jail people start having fatal accidents. Thanks, Hillary!
The one question I have is where is the ‘me too’ group? Why are they not screaming that these women accusing Epstein must be believed? Where is the far-left media, why are they not handing these two Dems out to dry with no trial like they were doing with Kavanaugh? This should show ppl just how to crooked the media and the Dems are, but many will say it’s different.
Yeah, it’s different because it’s the Dems on the hot seat being accused.
