Unless there's video of him committing suicide, I'm always going to question whether it was suicide. If there is video, I'm going to question what type of corruption allowed it. Simple belief that the guy should die for his crimes? Bribing someone to allow it to happen? Someone else intervening to ensure it happened?
Yeah, this is very... well, Russian in its feel.
...but recently, MSNBC's resident "I will say any dumbass thing" pundit Joe Scarborough said the same thing. Of course, he--and his "network's" meaning--was aimed at Trump, because they are still soaking the diapers over 2016.
It also shows a remarkable ignorance of American history, if he thinks suspicious deaths are not the stock and trade of this nation, from the streets, to every level of law enforcement.
But this wasn't some random half-assed jail in the middle of Nowhereville, Indiana. This was a federal holding. He was on suicide watch so there shouldn't have been anything in his cell that would have allowed him to kill himself. Cams not working, cellmate removed, no guard on duty. It's either A) Murder or B) Gross negligence. If it's the latter, that facility's staff need to be held accountable. When they Baker Act someone, they are placed in a room with someone with a bed with no sheets, no pillow case, solid walls with nothing to mount on and they even take your shoe laces. This Federal prison placed him on suicide watch and just left it all to chance?
I get why everyone jumped on the Clinton killed Epstein thing because of all the alleged suicides that the Clintons are associated with (plus it's just plain fun). But according to many accounts, there were LOTS of rich, powerful people that were going to face the music due to his testimony. That would have been a really fun circus to watch, which is the real tragedy here. I doubt anybody mourns that asshat but the fallout would have been delicious
I hope that someone mourns him. Even the worst of people should be loved by someone.
I think that the most likely thing is suicide, but I think someone, likely Epstein, greased some palms to make it possible. As far as murder, I think there are people with a lot more to lose than Bill Clinton or Donald Trump. Given the current state of Britain and the fact that everyone already hates the next king, I would rate the royal family as higher on the list of suspects than any US politician.
