You knew this was coming, but this quick? #ClintonBodyCount Is Trending on Twitter Following Epstein’s Death
JEFFREY EPSTEIN FOUND DEAD IN PRISON! But all media says he died by SUICIDE! The 66-year-old financier was hospitalized in July after he was found unresponsive in what appeared to be a possible suicide attempt. He was put on immediate, round the clock suicide watch, so either he’s a really sneaky suicidal guy, or prison guards are the most incompetent in history in New York, or… well, you fill in the blank after thinking about who is breathing and who is breathing a sigh of relief today.
In July Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York City jail, reportedly put under suicide watch. Yet Saturday he reportedly hanged himself?
This came the DAY AFTER several top Democrats including Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Governor Bill Richardson were implicated in unsealed Epstein court documents.
Within an hour #ClintonBodyCount was trending on Twitter.
Epstein’s body was found on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, said Aja Davis, a spokeswoman for the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. She could not immediately say how he died, saying that her office would need to examine the body.
But a source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, told Reuters that Epstein took his own life, confirming earlier reports by ABC News and other media outlets.
Attempts to reach officials at the center for comment were not immediately successful. Epstein’s lawyer Reid Weingarten also could not be reached.
Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls as young as 14, from at least 2002 to 2005.
Last month, Epstein was found unconscious on the floor of his jail cell with marks on his neck, according to media reports. Officials were investigating that incident as a possible suicide or assault. It was not clear whether jail officials had taken any special precautions afterwards.
Epstein, 66, was confined to the correctional center while he appealed a district judge’s refusal to let him live under 24-hour guard in his opulent townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
The charges against Epstein were announced more than a decade after he pleaded guilty in Florida to state prostitution charges after a deal with prosecutors that has been widely criticized.
A woman who accused Epstein of keeping her as a sex slave said one of the financier’s associates had instructed her to have sex with at least a half-dozen prominent men, according to a court filing unsealed on Friday in a civil lawsuit.
Epstein had previously been moved to a suicide-watch unit after being found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck on July 23, a week after his bail request had been rejected.
Epstein, a self-described “collector” of rich and powerful people, had links to a Who’s Who of prominent political and business figures. That circle, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton and billionaire Leslie Wexner, all distanced themselves from the financier after his July 2019 arrest.
U.S. prosecutors said Epstein used his wealth and power to sexually abuse dozens of young girls for years at his homes, paying them hundreds of dollars in cash for each encounter and hundreds more if they brought in more victims.
The alleged crimes occurred at Epstein’s residences in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida, from 2002 to 2005, involving minors as young as 14. The U.S. accused Epstein of “creating a vast network of victims.”
