Is there a D candidate roundup on Jeffrey Epstein?


Which candidates are going to fall for the “official story” that Epstein is dead and/or dead as a result of suicide?

Obviously, it will be a powerful campaign position that Trump had Epstein killed in order to cover up child rape, so which D candidates do you think are going to run with that?

I read somewhere that he was taken off suicide watch because he said that the marks on his neck were from someone attacking him. Is it too far-fetched to believe that if someone wanted him dead they would want to make it look like a suicide? I'm not saying it happened, but I'm not ruling it out either.

That somewhere was here, from a random Twitter account.

Twitter is not a reliable or legitimate news source.
No legitimate news source is running with that story.

to touch this, particularly with all the conspiracy theories out there including, I might add, Trump having Epstein killed to cover up child rape and/or human smuggling. It's all conjecture and horse feathers at this point and would only provide a quicksand moment for the candidate who waded in.

Too few facts, great gobs of creative fiction at the moment.

An accusation like that requires some evidence first. Trump wasn't the only rich and powerful person associated with Epstein.

Many people have their suspicions about who whacked Mr. Epstein. But I dont think a presidential candidate should use it as a political argument.

I would like to know the evidence that Trump was behind this. There are people who we dont even know that wanted Epstein silenced.
