Uber-rich pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s death in his jail cell certainly smells fishy. It was officially ruled a suicide. But given all the dirt he potentially had on powerful people, including President Trump and Bill Clinton, Epstein’s supposed suicide while prison guards were sleeping seems a bit too convenient.
We’ll probably never know for sure if there was a conspiracy to kill Epstein.
But we DO know for sure that Epstein was at the center of a conspiracy of powerful men to rape teenage girls.
According to witness statements and Manhattan prosecutors, Epstein lured dozens of teenage girls as young as 14 into performing sex acts with him and his guests at his mansions in New York City and Palm Beach, Florida. Once recruited, they were groomed to return again and again, to have sex with him and powerful people around him.
Police knew about this for years, yet Epstein was protected by his powerful connections. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to “prostitution” charges in Florida and spent only 13 months in a local jail – but he was allowed to leave jail for 12 hours every day for “work!”
Beyond Trump and Clinton, Epstein was also linked to a whole layer of rich Wall Street types and their politician cronies. Dozens of powerful people undoubtably knew about his crimes, and dozens more helped him avoid the consequences.
These powerful people are a slice of this country’s ruling class. Their participation in and protection of the systematic rape of young girls shows this capitalist ruling class exactly for what it is.
