Was Epstein Murdered to Protect Attorney General Barr and President Trump?
Did Jeffrey Epstein a convicted felon of sex crimes who had connections to William Barr’s father, Donald J. Trump and possible scores of the world’s most powerful men end his life in a strangulation murder while in federal custody? Is his alleged suicide a murder cover-up?
Convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein death on Saturday morning in Federal custody is suspiciously convenient for the current Attorney General and President of the United States who both had reason for wanting him dead just hours after hundreds of pages of court documents were unsealed in New York Federal Court allege new details of sexual abuse claims against Epstein, accomplices and started to reveal accusations against some of the richest and most powerful men in the United State and around the globe.
Manhattan federal prosecutors last month charged Mr. Epstein, 66, with sex trafficking of girls as young as 14. The indictment renewed attention toward how Mr. Epstein — who was incredibly wealthy and had several opulent homes, a private jet and access to elite circles — had escaped severe punishment in an earlier investigation into his abuse of girls more than a decade ago in Florida.
Epstein had avoided federal criminal charges in 2008 after prosecutors brokered a widely criticized deal with former Trump Labor Secretary Alex Acosta that allowed Epstein to plea to state charges of solicitation of prostitution from a minor and serve just 13 months in jail.
The new federal indictment of Epstein made international headlines because it focused attention a number of many wealthy and influential men in government, politics, business, academia, science and fashion that had personal relationship with Epstein. Many including Donald J. Trump, Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew of Britain and the retail billionaire Leslie Wexner traveled and spent a great deal of personal time with Epstein.
The story that is not being reported is the relationship that the president and attorney general each had with Jeffrey Epstein.
President Trump’s long association with Jeffrey Epstein, and their mutual attraction to young under age women had already been well documented by the press which had already been highlighted by a women who had filed a lawsuit, later dropped claiming that Donald J. Trump raped her after her being introduced to him by Jeffery Epstein.
Some believe that President Trump’s third wife and the current First Lady of the United State was introduced to the president by Epstein. So it is ironic that this morning President Trump pointed the finger at the Clintons through a You Tube video that Trump retweeted. Ironically, President Trump is not the only one with ties to Epstein.
Conveniently, President Trump is now on vacation and out of the limelight.
In 1973, Attorney General William Barr’s father Donald, the headmaster at Manhattan’s Dalton School, hired Epstein as a calculus and physics teacher even though Epstein had not earned a college degree as he dropped out of New York’s prestigious Cooper Union.
Several former students told NPR they remember seeing Epstein surrounded by female students at Dalton, though none recalled any incidents of misconduct…
"It was just kind of a general circle of girls," says Scott Spizer, who graduated from Dalton in 1976. "He was much more present amongst the students, specifically the girl students; during nonteaching hours ... it seemed just, it was kind of inappropriate."
"There was a mild sense of creepiness," says Kerry Lawrence, also in the class of 1976. "When you had a faculty member that girls were paying attention to, it was somewhat disconcerting."
The New Yorker wrote in a 2003 profile on Epstein with regard to his tenure at the school…
“he was something of a Robin Williams–in–Dead Poets Society type of figure, wowing his high-school classes with passionate mathematical riffs.”
Donald Barr the William Barr’s father did not do as well at the Dalton School. According to a 1974 New York Times article, the “controversial” headmaster tendered his resignation after a fight with the board of trustees.
When Jeffrey Epstein was indicted Attorney General Barr drew a great deal of criticism and speculation from observers for refusing to recuse himself from involvement from overseeing the new federal prosecution. Many in the opinion media pointed out that while Barr wouldn’t step back from the Epstein case, he did recuse himself from an internal Justice Department probe of current Labor Secretary Alex Acosta’s involvement in approving a controversial no-prosecution deal with the wealthy financier a decade ago.
Why would Barr recuse himself from the Acosta probe and not from the Epstein case? Was Barr concerned about the possibility of revelations about his father, Donald Trump, other powerful men - became open speculation.
Today it has been reported that Attorney General Barr visited the Midtown Correction Center (MMC) where Epstein was house two week ago when he attempted suicide.
It’s fair to ponder what other evidence collected from the seizure at Jeffrey Epstein’s offices and residences by federal investigators exists, who it might implicate. Does that evidence include videos, photos, documentation, even a diary that would implicate William Barr’s father and Donald J. Trump?
What we do know is Epstein’s connection with President Trump was real. We know that a trail for sex abuse and trafficking of young taking place at the same time the President was campaigning for re-election could have been at best problematic.
President defense of the former Secretary of Labor Acosta’s sweetheart Epstein plea deal raised more than eyebrows given Trump’s past admiration and involvement with the sex offender. Many asked justifiably why Trump was involving himself in anything that would further entwine himself in anything connected to the past or latest prosecution of Jeffery Epstein?
The cache of previously sealed legal documents, released that provided new, disturbing details about what was going on inside Mr. Epstein’s homes and how his unindicted accomplice recruited young women and girls, including from a Florida high school. Is this cache the tip of the iceberg?
What happens to that evidence? Will it conveniently disappear in part or in whole now that Epstein is dead? On Friday former New Mexico Governor and Secretary of State Bill Richardson as well as Senator George Mitchell were tied to women that Epstein pimped out to the world’s wealthiest.
Will federal prosecutors indict the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 57 accused of being the madam who procured underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein? Is she already co-operating with the FBI, a victim's lawyer has suggested? Is she about to meet an untimely death as well?
Virginia Roberts Giuffre now 35, one of Epstein's most vocal accusers, has said that she may now have turned on the disgraced billionaire financier. Giuffre has alleged she was recruited by Maxwell to have sex with rich and powerful men in 2000 while, aged 16, she was working as a towel girl at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.
According to press reports Maxwell before Jeffery Epstein’s death was at great risk because the records seized by federal investigators have so much evidence against her. Does that evidence suddenly vanish along with any testimony she may have given prosecutors, now that Epstein is dead? Maxwell was named in the 2008 Florida case against Epstein as his 'madam' and 'sex trafficker' but no action was taken against her and she has denied any wrong doing.
Jeffery Epstein’s “suicide” or murder creates more questions, it could also protect a lot of people including possibly the reputation of President Donald J. Trump and William Barr’s father. It could impact the stock market as confidence in President Trump erodes over his involvement in Epstein’s death. Expect us to stay on this story that is fastly evolving.
