People keep asking me "Why would Epstein WANT to kill himself?!"

Because it is a plausible theory that person most responsible for getting Jeffrey Epstein off of the suicide watch was...Jeffrey Epstein.

If he didn't want to kill himself, that is the last thing Epstein wanted.
After walking away in 2008, Epstein went back to his life of jet setting extravagance for another 11 years.

Until July 6 of this year, just over a month ago.
11 more years of traveling the world, staying in some of the world's most exclusive hotels, hobnobbing with the rich and famous, enjoying life in his NY mansion, his New Mexico ranch and, of course, that now infamous private island in the Caribbean.
This a guy who's assets were, according to his lawyers, set a minimum of $500 million dollars.

This is a guy who could wake up in the morning in NY and go "Hey I feel like lying on the beach in the French Rivera by the time the sun goes down" and then he makes it happen.
Most people have no idea what it means to be this wealthy, to have that kind of freedom.

We all have to be somewhere everyday, we have to be doing things, we have families, jobs, church events, things to take the kids to.

This guy had none of that.
Total and complete freedom to literally do whatever the hell he wanted to do whenever and where ever the hell he wanted to do it.

All that ENDED a month and a half ago.

And he **KNEW** it.
People tweet me "he was gonna beat this rap, he knew he was gonna lawyer his way out of it, he was walking, he had no reason to kill himself!"

You could not be MORE wrong.
They had enough to send this guy to prison for the rest of his life back [checks card] 2008.

That's even **WITHOUT** the search warrant to comb through his NY mansion and all the EVIDENCE they found in there.
Epstein knew he had drawn his LAST BREATH as a free man on July 6, 2019. He had a MONTH to think about that.

He's 66 years old. Even if he stays in excellent health, he has only around 20/25 years left to live.

And he's gonna spent all those years in a place like this.
They already have everything. They found all his records. all his carefully organized photos, any videos he made...

The only way he gets a reduced sentence is if they NEED him for something.

People keep missing the POINT about where this is headed.
It's not really ABOUT HIM.

It's about his CO-CONSPIRATORS and the CORRUPT PUBLIC OFFICIALS that let them and Epstein all walk off in 2008.

They don't really NEED anything from Epstein because they already have it all.
You think they pulled Epstein to throw him in an interview room & SWEAT him to try to pull the names of the corrupt officials out of him that gave him that sweetheart deal in 2008?

They don't know, he has to talk, or they'll NEVER find it out?
They already know who all these public officials were. They grabbed Epstein and served the search warrant to get the evidence on the co-conspirators.

Epstein, it's becoming clear, actually wasn't this brilliant financial trader. That was a cover story.
It's very likely Epstein made his money through various illegal enterprises.

Like money laundering and black mail. And to be successful at that kind of thing, laundering money and black mailing people for huge sums, what do you need to have?

Carefully kept records.
Epstein has a month to reflect on the brutal truth:

He's not getting a deal this time because Trump's people **literally** are out to take down this entire cabal.

And he's got NOTHING to offer them for a reduced sentence.
So for 1 month living in these tiny cells this guy who used to literally be able to jet off to any part of the world he wanted to visit and cavort in, is slowly realizing he is NEVER GETTING OUT.

So...is it **plausible** this guy would want to kill himself.

Yes it is.
Did he kill himself?

I have no idea. We're still waiting for more evidence. But people who confidently dismiss this theory maybe need to think it out again.

Addendum: Keep focusing on why this on-going case is being run out of the SDNY PUBLIC CORRUPTION UNIT.

That's very important.

People keep forgetting it.
