It is rumored that Epstein's lawyer has made a proffer to the prosecutors: Epstein will agree to cooperate with the investigation, including giving up the names of individuals that paid for activities with underage girls in exchange for a maximum sentence not to exceed 5 years.
The conventional wisdom among his friends was that Epstein has been victimized by greedy, morally dubious teenage girls and unscrupulous lawyers. "I've never condoned paying for sex, but if the young lady lied about her age it's her own fault," explained one socialite, who along with Wilbur Ross and Leon Black hobnobbed with Epstein at a Southampton movie screening just two months after his release from "community control" in Florida.
And here’s a woman who’s a fixture on the Manhattan and Hamptons circuit: "From a cerebral and business side he's worshipped. He's incredibly charming and handsome. He's an extraordinary package, so I can see why people don't want to believe what they hear. If people come out of jail and are still successful, people are very forgiving, shockingly so."
And here’s a distinguished scientist: “I always judge things on empirical evidence. He always has women ages 19 to 23 around him, but I've never seen anything else, so as a scientist, my presumption is that whatever the problems were I would believe him over other people."
Why was Epstein so easily rehabilitated? He was smart. Attractive. Rich. And that is a potent combination. As David Patrick Columbia, editor of New York Social Diary, explained it for the Times: “A jail sentence doesn't matter anymore. The only thing that gets you shunned in New York society is poverty.”

I do truly believe, based on the preponderance of evidence presented, that WJC was and continues to be a bad person. And just like most serial killers, the spouse always knows that something is up. And in this case I do believe she is culpable, as well as more than likely maleficent.
I also wish that people like trump would have kept his mouth shut about it on Twitter and whatnot. I like trump for a lot of reasons, but him talking about the Clinton body count actually takes away credibility. It gives the left, and the people actually involved with this creep ammo. Now they can turn it into a meme and laugh about it, even knowing deep down they are surrounded by and in some cases are these monsters.
When we met in 1986, Epstein’s double identity intrigued me — he said he didn’t just manage money for clients with mega-fortunes, he was also a high-level bounty hunter. Sometimes, he told me, he worked for governments to recover money looted by African dictators. Other times those dictators hired him to help them hide their stolen money.

This is not neccessarily about Epstein but it is relevant.
The husband of a friend of mine did security for foreign affairs in the Middle East during the 80's and 90's. He had a diplomatic status+passport. Went to places like Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan - Enough said.
He told me that he went through military training with and was close with one of the individuals who did security for the Clintons (let's call him Mike) going back to when WJC was AG back in Arkansas and running for Governor. There were some weird things going on back then - the word was funding was raised in dubious ways like trafficking coke and women. Housing schemes etc. Both Clintons were regular coke users and even arranged orgies with young women and drugs. Most campaign cash came from trafficking coke directly from Colombia and Peru and they had strings of mules with routes all the way to the White House. This was before WJC even was governor. In private they were extremely rude and abusive to staff and security, especially HRC.
Once Clinton become president in 1993 "Mike" followed WJC into the White House and was part of his permanent security detail. And business continued as usual with the coke smuggling plus now arms were traded as well. Lewinski was but a trivial incident compared to what perversions WJC did during his presidency. The rest is history I guess.
"Mike" took his own life shortly after 9/11. I was told The scary part is that most of the "old guard" Clinton inner circle security all died in the same manner over a period of a decade or so. All accidents or suicide - suicide - suicide.
Victor Thorn amongst others tried to expose this in his book "Clinton Murder Volume". He was found shot dead on a mountain somewhere like many others.
The Clintons are pure evil and naturally they had to get rid of Epstein because of what he knew about what WJC had done during his visits to Lolita island.

Maybe the only way to guarantee his protection was if his enemy’s thought someone else had already completed the hit.
So they create the suicide fiasco complete with enough shady details to convince everyone that it was probably an assassination. His enemy’s all sit back calmly thinking someone else did the dirty work for them, all the while he’s at camp David spilling the beans on everyone.
Hey, a guy can dream right. . .
