The only trouble with the conspiracy theory that hundreds of prominent and powerful people wanted Jeffrey Epstein dead is that Jeffrey Epstein might have wanted Jeffrey Epstein dead even more than they did. But that's mere conjecture. His mind is beyond being read. Of course, the evidence of his alleged crimes didn't die — the "meticulous" records he kept live on, along with the names of Mr. Epstein's patrons, clients, marks, however you might classify the celebs drawn into the pulsating estrogenic bubble of his life, humming that old tune "Thank Heaven for Little Girls…."
I'm a little surprised that Attorney General William Barr didn't have a heart attack upon learning the news. With Mr. Barr already fully engaged cleaning up the mighty mess in the Department of Justice, the FBI, and elsewhere — considerably aggravated by Robert Mueller's bungled operations — another stink bomb leaves federal law enforcement beskunked, bothered, and bewildered. And now the FBI is being sent into investigate? That's rich.
