Alleged child sex-slave ringleader Jeffery Epstein was found dead in his cell in a New York prison on Saturday morning.
The evidence seems overwhelming that he was guilty of being a purveyor of a pedophilia sex ring.
He was already found guilty on other charges in Palm Beach, Florida over a decade ago, but received a light sentence for the crimes committed. Former Labor Secretary Alex Acosta was forced to resign from his post after it was reported that, as a U.S. attorney in the case, he agreed to the lenient plea deal with Epstein.
It has been known for some time now that Epstein had befriended many high-ranking politicians and celebrities figures, including Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. Prince Andrew of England, the Saudi Crown Prince, and former Senator George Mitchell are also on his list of acquaintances. According to statements he made over the years, Epstein had also acquired a significant amount of dirt on the people around him.
A lot of people affiliated with Epstein were probably breathing a sigh of relief on Saturday once news of his death broke.
But they shouldn’t be.
They’re Not Off The Hook Yet
Attorney General William Barr warned those under investigation in the Epstein case to not get too comfortable in the wake of his death.
Barr said, “Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein. Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it.”
Epstein wasn’t exactly coy about his role in the alleged crimes.
Last year, he told New York Times reporter James B. Stewart that he had knowledge that would implicate famous people in his sick crimes.
Stewart wrote in today’s edition that “The overriding impression I took away from our roughly 90-minute conversation was that Mr. Epstein knew an astonishing number of rich, famous, and powerful people, and had photos to prove it. He also claimed to know a great deal about these people, some of it potentially damaging or embarrassing, including details about their supposed sexual proclivities and recreational drug use.”
These connections have led many to speculate that there is a conspiracy behind Epstein’s death.
I’m not one prone to believing in conspiracy theories generally, but even I have to admit this one seems fishy.
Despite Attorney General Barr’s assertion that these people shouldn’t “rest easy,” those implicated in Epstein’s crimes have a better chance of escaping justice now that the ringleader is dead.
Evidence Of Conspiracy
There are many odd coincidences surrounding Epstein’s death. But are they really coincidences? Time will tell.
It has been widely reported that, following an apparent suicide attempt three weeks ago, he was placed on suicide, only to be removed hours before his death. He also had a cellmate who was moved to another cell before his initial attempt.
Prison guards were supposed to check on him every half-hour. However, they went hours without checking on him. It has been reported that there are no cameras in the cell where he was found, with the nearest ones being in the adjacent hallway.
Just this morning, CBS reported that “shrieks and screams” were heard from the cell. However, the report did not clarify if it could have been the guards trying to revive Epstein following his hanging. It has been reported that he hung himself with a bedsheet.
All of this looks bad and deserves a thorough investigation—one that Barr, the DOJ, and Congress have promised to carry out.
Of the many conspiracies out there, the most commonly cited one revolves around the Clintons.
For years, there have been rumors floating around the internet that the Clintons have ordered the killings of political opponents.
If they were going to have anyone murdered, Epstein would clearly be at the top of the list.
However, so far we simply don’t have enough information to properly accuse the Clinton’s of being involved.
Jumping To Conclusions
It is disappointing to see many of my fellow Conservatives accuse the Clintons of murder when we don’t know all the facts. That goes against the principles of the Constitution we all work to defend on a daily basis.
Even the Clintons—who I loathe—deserve due process under the law.
If you take away anything from this article, please take this: Wait for all the information to come out before blaming the Clintons.
If they actually ARE involved, it would have wide-ranging ramifications for our country and should not be treated lightly.
I fear that many who are blaming the Clintons are doing so because they are political opponents rather than accusing them based on actual facts.
That is exactly what the Left does, and it’s just as wrong when it comes from conservatives. Just look at the recent El Paso shootings and the Russia Conspiracy, both of which President Trump was accused of having a hand in.
Let’s not be hypocrites and do the same thing we rightfully accuse the Left of doing.
If the facts point in that direction, then I would be at the front of the line calling for justice to be done.
At this time, we don’t know all the facts and should withhold judgment.
It could very well have been a murder, but that doesn’t mean that the Clinton’s were behind it; Epstein had plenty of people who would want him dead.
Let’s not rush to judgment.
We are better than that.
