There Is a Long List of People for Whom Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Represents What Might be a Narrow Escape, We do not Believe it was Suicide
We do not necessarily ascribe to Joe Scarborough’s conclusions that “The Russians” are responsible for Jeffrey Epstein’s death but we do believe he was murdered. In fact, in our opinion, he lacked the moral compass he would have needed to end his own life. He was a narcissist. He always lived in an illusion, a universe wherein he was the sun around which all others circulated – his planets – so-to-speak. Epstein was too much of an arrogant, cavalier, “holier than thou” type to take his own life. And suicide requires guts, something he lacked. Epstein believed, wholeheartedly it would seem, that he had done nothing wrong or that his friends in the highest echelons of our government, those who had provided him an extraction plan in escapades prior, would save him this time as well.
He would not have killed himself. For people like Epstein that would have been seen as a weakness, an admission. He pleaded innocent. He was prepared to brandish any weapon at his disposal to escape unscathed and it was that threat that we believe got him killed.
Whether or not an honest, transparent and complete inquiry into his death will be completed remains to be seen. The FBI and the Justice Department have threatened to do such an inquiry. But in our view those agencies are shadowed by Trump’s orbit, tainted by his influences; and perhaps those of Epstein himself even in death. We therefore have our doubts. We are certain, however, that the lack of oversight at the jail was too easy, almost worthy of a novel. If you start with the conclusion that he was murdered, you will find what you are looking for. It’s all there.
THE CLINTON THEORY? TRUMP?
Our President’s decision to use this episode as an opportunity to create a sordid conspiracy theory surrounding the Clintons we see as equally suspect, ill-advised or just plain childish. Donald Trump would have been better suited to remain silent about the Epstein death than to begin a campaign against the Clintons, who are not at this juncture politically relevant. In so doing, he who hath protest too much has shined a bright light in the wrong direction, upon himself.
President Trump lives in a world where the personification of Nietzsche’s “Ubermensch” is the essence of his being. Demoralizing others to make yourself all the grander is his modus operandi; and he had as much reason to want Epstein dead as many, many others. It is suspect, indeed; but speaks more to Trump’s opportunism and ability to manipulate the basest of human conditions than anything else.
By spending the weekend using Twitter to raise serious questions about Epstein’s death and at the same time draw blood from a former political rival, President Trump drew attention not away from himself as a possible conspirator in the death of Clinton’s (and Trump’s) once sexual predator buddy but by our estimation, towards his own potential involvement. That is not to say that we believe that our President murdered someone, quite the contrary.
But, would he have nixed the idea had one of his wealthy financier, sexually depraved friends suggested it to him? We think not. Would President Trump have directed anyone looking to take out Epstein toward those better suited to do the job right? Well… perhaps. Is President Trump likely relieved that Epstein is dead? Most definitely. The Clintons likely share in that relief and they too are not alone. There are so many others for whom Epstein’s death is a possible gift, we could go on for pages through the annuls of decades of Epstein’s history.
Suffice it to say, the more Trump points to Clinton, the more we think people should be directing their attention at Trump’s history, his financial encounters with Epstein. We don’t think it is an implication of guilt; but rather a red flag to tempt the bulls to run. We would guess that President Trump and his associates past and present have substantial records of the Mar-a-Lago connection to Epstein’s sexual enslavement of young girls. We suspect even more, that the man in Trump’s administration upon whose watch Epstein died, Attorney General Barr, may well be someone who deserves scrutiny. It was all too easy.
And this time last week, we could have seen this coming. If Barr moves forward with a deep and unabashed scrutiny of the Epstein death, then his former legal involvement with Epstein, however far removed, diminishes in relevance. If he pays it only lip service than we should all be very skeptical of his involvement.
We have our doubts either way.
THE PONZI SCHEME, EPSTEIN’S EARLY YEARS AND INFLUENTIAL CONNECTIONS
Epstein has a long history of escaping conviction, each with a similar pattern and conclusion. He defrauds or debases, winds up on the long list of possible suspects but somehow doesn’t find himself on the short list. In the 90’s he defrauded elderly, disabled and trusting people out of millions in an elaborate Ponzi Scheme. It may have been the first major Ponzi scheme in US history. Yet, in the end, his partner Stephen Hoffenberg went to jail for 18 years while Epstein’s name disappeared from any judicial or investigative inquiries linked to the case. Those with the power to explain why have either died or remain forever silent.
Hoffenberg has said that he will tell his story. We would be curious to hear it. We wonder now if he is short for this world like his former partner. There were a lot of people involved in those early years; and it would seem that Epstein kept his associates close and his enemies closer. How he was unnamed in multiple judicial inquiries into fraud, Ponzi schemes, illicit sexual activity, tax evasion and the list goes on is where the US justice system should start looking. But this could be a collision course with an outcome far too explosive, much like Jack Nicolson’s tirade in “A Few Good Men”. Can we actually handle the truth?
We will continue to update this story. For now, we are subdividing areas of relevance, as we view it, with collections of articles related to the subject matter.
We would like to provide a little history as the architectural underpinning of our theory.

THE ELITE CIRCLE OF EPSTEIN’S FRIENDS AND INFLUENTIAL ASSOCIATES
STEPHEN J. HOFFENBERG, J. EPSTEIN & COMPANY, FINANCIAL TRUST COMPANY, THE DALTON SCHOOL, PANAM AIRWAYS
(Daily Mail) A disgraced former business partner of Jeffrey Epstein, who was jailed for almost 20 years for his role in a massive Ponzi scheme, has implicated the billionaire pedophile in the same fraud that landed him behind bars.
Epstein’s former boss, Steven Hoffenberg, has claimed his one-time protégée was ‘totally in the mix’ of the scheme that saw 200,000 investors defrauded to the tune of $460 million through his Towers Financial Corp in the 1980s.
The Hoffenberg claims are not new, but he reiterated them again in an interview with Quartz magazine this week, adding: ‘He was my colleague daily, seven days a week.’
After Epstein was arrested last Saturday on child sex-trafficking charges, Hoffenberg claims began to pick up steam again, offering a plausible explanation for his mysterious and seemingly infinite wealth, the New York Post reports.
THE SUICIDE THEORY IN THE MEDIA
Joe Scarborough still seems to have zero regrets for the cavalier insinuations he made about Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious death over the weekend.
After Epstein was found in his jail cell after what was described as an apparent suicide, Scarborough reacted to the suspicious circumstances of the financier’s death by suggesting the Russians (and possibly President Donald Trump) might’ve had something to do with this. The MSNBC host was accused of advancing conspiracy theories by making those remarks without any evidence, but Scarborough shrugged off those criticisms by saying he was making a “glib, offhanded comment” at the time.
On Monday’s Morning Joe, Scarborough repeated himself by acknowledging how he “glibly” spoke of Epstein’s death.
“This is what we see in mob cases…It makes no sense. There’s no way that the Justice Department should have left this man sitting in that jail cell by himself and there is no explanation that the attorney general, there’s no explanation the bureau of prisons with give. There’s no explanation that anyone can give to explain why he was and whether that launches a million conspiracy theories or not, this Attorney general and this president have a lot to answer for.”

Correctional officers at the New York City prison that was housing Jeffrey Epstein didn’t check in on him for hours leading up to his apparent suicide on Saturday, which occurred after his cellmate was transferred for reasons that were not immediately clear.
Epstein, 66, was found unconscious in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, and later pronounced dead, raising questions about how the wealthy financier, imprisoned on sex trafficking charges, could have been able to kill himself while in a high-security facility just over two weeks after being placed on suicide watch.
For “several hours” leading up to his death, correctional officers hadn’t checked in with Epstein — despite being required to visit him every 30 minutes, a person familiar with the situation told Fox News.
The Washington Post first reported the news Sunday night.
Additionally, Epstein was supposed to have a cellmate. But the person who was assigned to share a cell with Epstein was transferred on Friday before the 66-year-old’s death, according to the Post. It was not immediately clear why the cellmate was transferred or why no one else was assigned to room with Epstein.

ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR
Attorney General William Barr won’t recuse himself from involvement in the new charges filed against alleged sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein by federal prosecutors in New York, according to a Justice Department official.
Barr made the decision on Tuesday after consulting with career ethics officials at the department, said the official, who asked not to be identified discussing a sensitive matter.
Barr weighed whether he would have to remove himself from involvement in the case in part because Epstein had previously hired lawyers from the law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Barr served as counsel to the law firm before becoming attorney general.
Attorney General Barr announces investigation into Epstein’s death by suicide amid reports the convicted sex offender wasn’t on suicide watch when he died
In a statement, Barr wrote that he was “appalled” to learn Epstein was found dead while in federal custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, and said his death “raises serious questions that must be answered.”
Barr also announced an investigation would be opened in the Office of the Inspector General into the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death, in addition to the previously announced FBI investigation into the incident.
Although Epstein was hospitalized and reportedly placed on suicide watch in late July, he wasn’t on it at the time of his death.
Attorney General William Barr released a statement through the Department of Justice on Saturday announcing the the Office of the Inspector General would launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death by apparent suicide while in federal custody.
Epstein, a 66-year-old wealthy financier charged with sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy, was found unresponsive in his cell at 6:30 a.m., and was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead after staff “immediately” started “life-saving procedures.” The death was by hanging, The New York Times reported. Epstein, who pleaded not guilty, was being held without bail while he awaited trial.
