DoJ's N721AL flew from Manassas to Teterboro and from there to US Virgin Islands yesterday (8/11/19). Apparently they picked up NYPD people from Teterboro.

8. +1

A person would think the FBI would have the necessary permissions to search lined up the day of the arrest.

5. Maybe what they will find there

is the reason he killed himself, assuming he knew the search was coming.

9. Or maybe the real purpose of the raid

is to seek and destroy any evidence linked to Trump -- or plant evidence linked to the Clintons/Dems.

11. Destroy/plant evidence ... that is an evil but possible thought

some one could have been collecting DNA sample all this time, waiting for the perfect opportunity ...

Makes me sick to think about it.

13. That makes the most sense to me.

Barr paid Epstein a visit in prison...who knows what was exchanged during the conversation. Now Epstein is dead and maybe Barr has to do some clean up in aisle 5? Wouldn’t surprise me a bit.

everything, nothing will be found.

20. If the full truth ever does come out,

we’re all going to have to face some tough truths about some of our political heroes. No party is going to be immune to this. No one is clean. But one is going to believe it about our guy.

This just doesn't make any sense to me. None of it does.

I don't trust Barr as far as I can throw him.

21. Because the conspiracy speculation has taken hold in some media, he might be looking for scapegoats

to put it to rest enough to move on to something else. I trust Barr to be corrupt - that is how far I trust him.

14. There was a large fire on his island about 6 months ago

Maybe all the evidence has already burned up? Or maybe Epstein took it with him to his place in Paris, where the Feds will never be allowed to search.(?) When Epstein was arrested in July he had just returned from a long visit in France.

near the town of Red Hook. Who knows the depths of depravity that took place there.

18. Tweeted this the day Epstein died.

FBI get thee fast to the Lolita Island and open those safes. Track down safes in Switzerland, Panama and Ukraine. Without doubt there is video evidence to support investigations!

22. A couple of quick points

First, let me comment, safes are not hard to open for the FBI.

Second: The Trump administration has made a habit of blaming the victims for the crimes they have perpetrated and are perpetrating.

The women who are being held to task in the child trafficking that organized crime has, and is conducting, are molls, who have themselves been victimized as teens and forced to manage their operation as a means of deflecting prosecution if the facts were uncovered by the media. That is typical of how any sensitive mafia operation involving prostitution takes place. Any brothels will typically be managed by women, with armed men being everpresent.

Though Trump might not have been "complicit" in the operation and management of the ring, that does not get him a "get out of jail free" card. That SHOULD be obvious, but the media lapdogs are so blind as to fall for an obvious ploy be congressional Republicans to mute the affair.

29. Guy had friends in high places.

How else could Epstein have enjoyed the services of the corrupt Alex Acosta, former US Attorney and Sec. of Labor, in charge of combatting child sex trafficking; and USAG William Barr, whose father hired the diploma-less Epstein as a teacher at The Dalton School?
