Disgraced multimillionaire and accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide over the weekend in his New York jail cell.
That’s what we know… but the Epstein saga is wrought with speculation and questions that won’t end anytime soon.
Epstein has been connected to many high-profile names in D.C. (with former President Bill Clinton being the most notable) – many of which were supposed to be revealed during Epstein’s upcoming trial.
Even President Trump tweeted over the weekend what many are calling a ‘conspiracy theory’ about the Epstein-Clinton connection.
But we’d like to deal with the facts and what we KNOW.
First, we know Epstein was a despicable person who exploited countless under-age girls.
Second, we know Epstein was connected to many politicians and high-profile millionaires and billionaires.
Third, we know Epstein’s death is being investigated by the FBI and that Attorney General William Barr wants answers.
According to a weekend report from The Hill, Barr decried the death of Epstein in federal custody while he awaited charges on sex trafficking, saying the apparent suicide "raises serious questions."
"In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death," Barr said in a statement.
We will not speculate on what those “serious questions” are… but we know that the death under federal custody just shortly before he was supposed to stand trial does at least raise eyebrows.
What this also means is that the Epstein saga is far from over. In fact, his death may turn up the spotlight on his life and connections even more.
According to a report from Newsmax, sexual abuse victims of Epstein "deserve to be made whole for the lifelong damage he caused," attorney Lisa Bloom tweeted Saturday morning following reports of his death.
Predator Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. On behalf of the victims I represent, we would have preferred he lived to face justice.
Our civil cases can still proceed against his estate. Victims deserve to be made whole for the lifelong damage he caused. We’re just getting started.

So for Bill Clinton, or anyone else that’s been connected to Epstein… buckle up! This Epstein rollercoaster isn’t going away anytime soon.
