  1. I wasn’t shock. Seen it coming from day one. But I refuse to accept that it was Suicide

      Jimmie Smith so you got a crime black bob mueller?

    • there’s NO evidence that it was anything BUT suicide. Epstein didn’t have any defensive wounds and there are hand/finger marks on a neck when one is strangled. There were none. There’s been no reports that there were drugs in Epstein’s body, so you can’t assume that.
      Sorry, but you’ll have to forgo conspiracy theories because it doesn’t fit with facts. Epstein killed himself because he knew he wouldn’t be able to get away with his crimes like he was able to in Florida years ago.

    • @ceciliaFX i see your point. I disagree but i respect and understand your opinion on the matter. Can you explain why the cameras were turned off during his incarceration under suicide watch? You have to admit thats a little strange no?

    Good Judge. Hope the victim’s get some resolve the pain.

    I hope there is as much justice as is possible. (All his assets go to no one but victims. Oh, and lawyers, and court fees…)

  4. This is about finding out what other powerful people were involved in Einstein’s crimes against these women.

  5. Hope they take em all down

  6. So speaking….they will give the victims a hearing and dismiss the case. Can’t see justice at all. The called ‘Elite’ continue to harm children and get away with this. Awful.

  7. If you are with a person and while you are with this person and they do a murder both are charged. Why is Epstein co-conspirators any different???

    • @ Paul. For real. It doesn’t seam like our FBI or DOJ is going after it. Why? Could it be that those organizations belong to corporations and not WE THE PEOPLE?

    • @D W I see your eye’s are not wide shut…

    • @Paul Brown back at you fellow American. Keep pushing.

    • Many, if not most, if not all of them might have been intelligence assets. Hence the sweetheart deal for Epstein himself, hence the non prosecution agreement for ALL of his co-conspirators and potential co-conspirators. Hence why Alexander Acosta told the Trump Administration when he was being vetted to be Secretary of Labor that the reason why he gave Epstein the sweetheart deal was because he was told by someone above him that Epstein worked in intelligence and was above his pay grade and he should back off.

    • @Jonathan Rose that is exactly what is going on. How do we deal with this?

    Suicide or not the victims in this case deserve justice. And those who were also involved with Jeffrey Epstein all deserve to be brought up on criminal charges in accordance to current U.S. criminal law.

  9. Let the victims speak and give them his money! Why is he allowed to protect his money after his death! He was murdered and we deserve to know who did it and see them bought to justice! You shouldn’t be allowed to buy the Justice System! Somebody in that prison was complicit and was paid off! And somebody MURDERED him and everybody knows it!

      Becausethe person has to all alive and found guilty . Epstein is not the only wealthy person to off himself before trial to stop or limit financial forfature.

  10. Good move. Let’s hope it’s real. These victims can identify the perverts that Epstein was selling them to. Those big wigs are guilty of serious human rights violations. Many are in top government and corporate positions. AMERICA DOES NOT TOLERATE THAT. PERIOD

  11. Show some respect for the victims by not showing that monster’s face on loop.

    Someone standing up for the victims, thank God.

    This investigation Must continue to the end. No matter who goes down.

    He could have destroyed alot of rich and so called powerful people. They were not going to let him give them up

  15. Saw it coming-no one believes it was a suicide, no one! Justice must pursue all involved with epstein! All!

  16. Co conspirators can join Epstein, or answer to their bad deeds in court…. they have had a life to enjoy , at the very least, the few years they have left they should be made an example, and discourage the next generation of their kind

  17. Who is next to be suicided behind closed doors !?

  18. I think Epstein had SO MUCH information on high profile politicians/industrialists that he couldn’t be allowed to testify! Remember the Washington madame who “conveniently” committed suicide JUST before she was to testify about WHO was in her little black book!

    • Alex Jones is a whacko…
      Some of his points were actually valid though.

    • Blanca Blanco | August 27, 2019 at 8:10 PM | Reply

      In 2016, her lawyer unsuccessfully attempted to have her records unsealed claiming the information her records contain would be highly relevant to the 2016 presidential election. Coincidence?

  19. Remember Epstein case is a conspiracy case just cause he’s dead doesn’t mean people won’t get in trouble.

  20. Do we still have a Supreme Court justice that is a vegetable?
