Federal Judge; ‘Numerous Prominent American Politicians’ to be Implicated in Epstein Files
U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska indicated on Wednesday that thousands of people will be implicated, including ‘numerous prominent American politicians, when sealed documents related to the Epstein case are released. Preska is referring to more than two dozen depositions and investigative reports prepared for the case. The sealed documents contain potentially “life-changing” information according to a lawyer for one unidentified person fighting the disclosure of the files.
Epstein committed suicide under mysterious circumstances early last month, but it has not stopped the investigations from continuing, and the ramifications from falling on many.
Epstein was awaiting trial for accusations of child trafficking.
The files are currently sealed, but they seem to be the smoking gun that could bring down some very powerful people.
The Blaze reports:
Preska was referring to more than two dozen depositions and investigative reports. The sealed documents contain potentially “life-changing” information according to a lawyer for one unidentified person fighting the disclosure of the files.
The files are related to accusations from Epstein’s alleged victims that also implicate “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known Prime Minister and other world leaders.”
Just ahead of Epstein’s suicide, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals released a tranche of documents that identified some of his alleged accomplices, including Prince Andrew, and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democrat.
Other third parties identified in the sealed documents will be able to argue their case to keep them sealed before they are released.
So the real question is what will become unsealed, and what crazy things happen from here on out?
The suicide is raising more questions than answers about how such a high-profile prisoner such as Epstein was allowed the opportunity to kill himself.
The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose made out of a bed-sheet.
Epstein was not supposed to be alone in his cell, but he was. The guards were supposed to check in on Epstein every 30 minutes, but they left him alone for hours. The cameras were not working. One of the two workers who were assigned to guard Epstein wasn’t even a full-fledged federal correction officer.
Epstein also was supposed to have a cellmate, but that inmate had apparently left for some unknown reason. The inmate was not immediately replaced as required by protocol.
He had been downgraded to “special observation status,” which required two guards to make separate checks on him every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed.
Epstein’s own lawyer has claimed that he would not have committed suicide.
The Feds are investigating the suicide itself, almost immediately declaring that there was something very fishy about the incident.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr said he was “appalled” when he was informed of the suspicious suicide.
‘We will get to the bottom of what happened at the MCC,” Barr said in a statement, “and we will hold people accountable for this failure.”
What happened to Epstein? We may never know. He definitely had more motive than most to end it. But there are obviously THOUSANDS of people, many important, who as well had plenty of reason to have him eliminated.
Many of them definitely had the means to do so.
It is a sad case with an unknown number of victims. There needs to be justice for all involved.
