Jeffrey Epstein Dead In Apparent Suicide
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Aug 10 2019

Jeffrey Epstein has died after having reportedly committed suicide in his jail cell, according to multiple news reports. A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 am, the NY Post reported. The ambulance went to NYC Downtown Hospital. Epstein had previously been moved to a suicide watch unit after being found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck on Jul 23, a week after his bail request had been rejected.

Jeffrey Epstein Dies Of “Suicide”
Caitlin Johnstone, Aug 10 2019

Disappointing everyone yet surprising no-one, accused sex trafficker and alleged billionaire Jeffrey Epstein has “committed suicide.” Details are muddled and conflicting. CNN reports:

The NYT reports:

Mr Epstein hung hanged himself and his body was found this morning at roughly 7:30.

Some reports claim that Epstein has been on suicide watch due to a prior alleged suicide attempt three weeks ago when he was found unconscious with bruising on his neck, others deny it:

If he wasn’t, it’s weird because he obviously should have been, and if he was, it’s weird because it failed. Prisons vary greatly in how they implement suicide watch protocol, but at bare minimum it should mean that unsafe objects have been removed from the prisoner’s cell and monitoring has been greatly increased. Stockton University criminal justice professor Christine Tartaro told CNN in an interview on the subject in 2017 that on suicide watch “there should be constant, one-on-one eyes on inmates.”

Following Epstein’s arrest last month on federal sex trafficking charges, many people predicted that exactly this would happen, some half-jokingly and some not. This is because, as Whitney Webb of Mint Press News documented in a recent book-length trio of articles, Epstein appears to have been involved in a complex Mossad-tied sexual blackmail operation and had close ties with many powerful people, including Donald Trump and the Clintons. The narrative that the Clintons have a penchant for “suiciding” their enemies was already a viral idea in right-wing conspiracy circles, and many of the early prognostications of Epstein’s fate came from that side of the political aisle. But those voicing skepticism about Epstein’s death today come from all across the political spectrum, from left to right and from fringe to mainstream.

Others, of course, have been bleating about Russia for no reason. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tweeted, to thousands of retweets and tens of thousands of likes:

This story is nuts. I personally am on record disagreeing with those on both sides of the aisle who’ve been claiming that the Epstein scandal was going to lead to mass arrests of extremely powerful people in Faschingstein, because the swamp protects itself.

We see that today clearer than ever. Whatever happened in that prison cell today, it made some nasty swamp monsters very happy. former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti tweeted:

    As long as Giuffre’s testimony stays in the public domain. TPTB can’t suppress it, but they could make it illegal to quote it, like the shooter’s manifesto in Christchurch NZ?
