If Jeffrey Epstein was murdered: Who would have him killed?
While Jeffrey Epstein’s death was ruled a suicide, a second autopsy found that his wounds were more in line with homicide. The injuries on his neck, the second autopsy found, were consistent with strangulation victims, not suicides.
Also, even if Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, the conditions where he could do it were so bungled that foul play would be all but suspected. Both guards who were supposed to watch Jeffrey Epstein were distracted and ended up being charged with falsifying prison records. The tape of Epstein in his cell mysteriously vanished.
Even before the second autopsy came out, conspiracies abounded about Jeffrey Epstein’s death. A wealthy investment banker who led a pedophile ring, Epstein was rumored to have several rich & powerful friends who may have also been clients. These clients, including US presidents, would have a vested interest in him not talking.
True or not, the conspiracy theories show a distrust of the rich & powerful in the US on both the left and the right. Among the conspiracy theories about who killed Jeffrey Epstein, these are the most popular.
Current US President Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein were friends for decades. They met in the New York social scene in the 1990s and moved in the same circles in Palm Beach, too. According to sources, Trump and Epstein often frequented the same bars & clubs.
Like Jeffrey Epstein, Trump has also faced accusations of having sex with minors. One dropped a lawsuit in 2016 where she alleged that Trump assaulted her and threatened her family if she went public with the story. If the woman coming forward was also connected to Epstein, it would connect a sitting US president to a pedophile ring.
Also suspiciously, the day after Epstein died, Trump tweeted the conspiracy theory that Clinton killed Epstein. Why would Donald Trump boost the conspiracy theory that Bill Clinton killed Jeffrey Epstein the day after Epstein died? Could Trump have ordered members of his cabinet to take Epstein out?
After Jeffrey Epstein’s first sex crime conviction, Trump reportedly distanced himself from Epstein. When asked in interviews, Trump claimed he barely knew Epstein although their friendship was well-documented for years. Also, Trump named two members involved with Epstein to his cabinet: Alex Acosta and William Barr.
Alex Acosta was the US attorney for Florida who engineered Jeffrey Epstein’s lenient plea deal. Trump appointed him as Secretary of Labor. He also appointed US Attorney General William Barr, whose father was the head of the Dalton School, and hired Epstein to teach math.
Former US President Bill Clinton also had ties to Epstein and had flown a few times on the “Lolita Express,” Epstein’s private jet. Allegedly, Clinton also had an affair with Epstein’s girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell. The rumors of this affair add to Clinton’s reputation for being unfaithful.
While in office, Bill Clinton was impeached for having an affair with a 21-year-old-intern, Monica Lewinsky, in the oval office. While this has no connection to Epstein, it cemented Clinton’s reputation for lusting after younger women.
#Pizzagate and how the Clintons could kill Jeffrey Epstein
The conspiracy doesn’t stop with Bill Clinton’s wandering eye. A rumor that the Clintons were running a sex trafficking ring out of a pizza shop in Washington, DC spread during Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. #Pizzagate alleged that Hillary was sending secret codes to top democrats to run a sex trafficking ring.
Conspiracy theorists link Clinton’s ties to Epstein with Pizzagate to hypothesize the Clintons killed Jeffrey Epstein. Although the Clintons no longer have federal power, they have connections to high-ranking New York City and State corrections officials who could’ve feasibly made sure Epstein was “taken care of” so he didn’t dish any dirt on Bill.
The British Royal Family
Amid Prince Andrew, Duke of York’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, rumors about the Royal Family’s possible involvement are turning up. Similarly, there was a conspiracy that the Royal Family was responsible for Princess Diana’s death. Currently, there are rumors that Prince Andrew may meet a mysterious end due to his liaison with Epstein.
Buckingham Palace strongly denies the allegations that Prince Andrew took part in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring. Lawsuits and affidavits from victims say otherwise. Recently, Prince Andrew appeared on the BBC to defend himself. Due to criticism of his body language, he looked more suspicious after the interview.
