Not only do you and I and everyone else who watches the news think there’s something fishy and squirrelly and every-other-animal-ly with Epstein’s death, but so do his lawyers.
More from the execrable Talking Points Memo:
In a statement, Epstein’s lawyers said his defense team “fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of Mr. Epstein’s death.”
That will include, they wrote, “legal action to view the pivotal videos — if they exist as they should — of the area proximate to Mr. Epstein’s cell during the time period leading to his death.”
In a statement Friday, Dr. Barbara Sampson, chief medical examiner of New York City, said she had determined “after a careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings” that Epstein had died of suicide by hanging in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
Before his death, in order to avoid spending time in his cell, Epstein “paid numerous lawyers to visit the jail for as many as 12 hours a day” so that he and the lawyers had access to the private meeting room used for attorney-client visits, the New York Times reported Saturday citing unnamed people who saw the meetings.
Look I think that some people are exaggerating what happened because let’s face it, people love conspiracy theories way more than they love the truth. BUT, it’s still very weird. And if no one else goes down in the wake of his death, if it’s just brushed under the rug, there are going to be a lot of loud angry voices. And I’m gonna be one of them!!
Well that’s it for Saturday. We hope you’re having a great weekend!
Have an open thread, friends.
