  • I think Epstein had SO MUCH information on high profile politicians/industrialists that he couldn’t be allowed to testify! Remember the Washington madame who “conveniently” committed suicide JUST before she was to testify about WHO was in her little black book!

  • She's my President says:

    MSNBCannibals trying to get ahead of Epstein story knowing Epstein's Black BOOK has MSNBCannibals' names all over the place!

  • His suicide was his final act of control. He won bigly, as the supreme magat says. Good luck getting any money from the trust. It’s hilarious!

  • This guy was no different than the serial killers we loathe, he murdered souls, countless souls and to assist him into the hereafter and allow him to hide his assets from the victims is pure evil.

  • Gilbert Witherspoon says:

    After the old slave owners die off ; the children reap the benefits of slavery: that's why Reparations are in order!!!

  • one crying in the wilderness says:

    The victims may get some justice, but those that were involved will go scott free because they're considered to be to big to fail.

  • So many conspiracy theories , what's a girl to think?
    Hmmm, could be like the movie FX with a switch and bait.
    Could be all the people involved had him murdered, they are rich and powerful.
    Could be suicide, but a
    narcissist generally doesn’t take their own life, they just ruin or murder others.
    Unfortunately for the victims, they will fight for years before seeing anything if ever.
    Sad to say no one will be punished and no one will pay for the crimes committed.
    Smh, this is what holds the reins of our country.
    Powerful people who believe they are above the law.
    And Aren't They…
    Yes, They Are…

  • gregory t. ferguson says:

    I'd almost bet that the offer of 100 million he made, probably happened and he's in another country, drink in hand with a little umbrella sticking out of the top

  • What I really don't understand or I'm missing something. These young ladies were minor. Where was the parents? What parent would let them be out all time of night with grown adults. The parents are responsible to protect their children. Would any of you let your daughters be with a bunch of adults. Unless the parents was dead, they are supposed to protect them. I need someone to explain this to me. Someone must have known those girls was under age. If Jeffery is dead, then he will face God and his punishment. Please understand I'm not judging anyone, but every time I read or see something in the paper or on the computer, this question comes in my head. Where was the Parents?

  • The victims have a right to justice, and Epstein's co-conspirators (no matter who they are) should be held accountable. Even if they are or where royalty or presidents.

  • This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; (2 Timothy Chapter 3) Do you have any idea what is really about to happen?! Your media and politics wont save your souls. Wake Up!!

  • I like how MSNBC believes he killed himself 😂 Proof our mainstream media is your mortal enemy. They work for the deep state!

  • How deep does the rabbit hole go? Jeffrey Epstein was just the tip of the iceberg, the present front for a dark underbelly that existed long before he came along, and sadly will continue to thrive when all of the fall-out from this case dies down. It's no secret that pedophilia & elitism work hand in hand, and has done for many years. I'd like to know who the big perpetrators are behind the scenes who are happy to remain anonymous and for all the blame to fall on the shoulders of a dead man….. maybe that was the plan all along. I really hope all the perpetrators are exposed and charged for their crimes towards innocents all over the world, I really do. There is always hope, if nothing else🤞

    Karma works in mysterious ways ⚖️

  • I would like to see Prince Andrew , the royal liar, go down! Everyone adores British royals, but they are nothing but glorified criminals, hiding behind their titles and money!

  • The 3 young women with a Look of Bold, Raw, Pride took my breath away as I flashed across the World and thought how many young girls( these are young women,the victims were “girls”-children- a difference exists), were being channeled thru these expressions.These Moments are Power.The truth is, this issue can remain fromt and center from now on!

  • Young Katzenjammer says:

    Justice will be done …
    AG William Barr (Saturday 08/10/2019): "I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning …"
    Captain Renault (Claude Raines) / Casablanca: "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"
    TANJ

  • There will not be 1 moment from this forward where this issue can not be kept Right in the front( of course there are other factors that will not allow it- pedophiles on Boards…) because next week, a new Pedophile will be caught, estimated 1 in 7 children( it does not have to get allthe way to this stage to be just as damaging). Judge Girl Power!Hero!

  • Do you want to become a part of shaping the exciting World trop Rock rock music association the fastest-growing new John review

  • Counterfit Mimic says:

    no pictures of dead children in sandyhook. it never happened. same actors in sandyhook with columbine… its all fake. epstein isnt dead. he got let out of prison by government officials.

  • I notice CNN or fox has not covered this story. Hmm 🤔 cover up. What about the video of the area around Epstein’s cell that was rendered unusable?

  • Why hasn't Ghislaine Maxwell been arrested yet? Because she knows too much and the rich and powerful want us to forget about her.

  • Everyone expected Epsteins death. This is ridiculous. The guy got murked. Can you "news" people please stop pretending like nothing happend.

  • Epstein was held at a Federal prison facility. The DOJ is in charge of all Federal prisons. William Barr is in charge of the DOJ. William Barr's father has direct ties to Epstein.
    William Barr should have recused himself from this case.

    No one has answered the question: How did Epstein become a billionaire? Was he blackmailing rich and powerful men? Epstein wasn't the only child molester. There are a lot of other billionaires who should be indicted. Is that why William Barr refused to recused himself? Besides Individual-1, who is William Barr protecting?

  • As far as him being murdered goes….. Who is in power? Clinton's or the Trump's? Who oversees the prison system! The attorney general!!!!

  • Gee, i wonder who called this out over two decades ago…Oh. That's right. Alex Jones. And while Alex Jones was calling this out, MSNBC was knowingly covering up these crimes!

  • Marlon Mudzudzu says:

    I have a feeling they are going to just 'brush' the whole 'suicide' thing under the carpet and hope people eventually forget.

  • How could the judge say that the "suicide" was unexpected? Every one that has an ounce of sense expected it. He was even on suicide watch a week before. What an ignorant statement.

  • Epstein's money should 've been frozen by investigative committee since he was in middle of an investigation. Dirty money at that?! If a drug dealer is arrested his assets are seized even if drug dealer has not been proven guilty yet. Seize Epstein's money and property until investigation is complete and source of money is revealed. Build wall with his money as a symbol of stopping sx trafficking children.

  • Ruban Raj Kumar Ganesan says:

    Judge found his death shocking and unexpected.

    Judge, the death was prophesied by so many the day he was denied bail. It was so expected, had this been a movie the most common word used in its review would be cliched.

  • Hey MSNBC PRAVDA the pedophile ring gripping our country won. FBI murdered Epstein. You and your gang are safe. Break open the champagne!

  • Case is over..now we will have more victims..give them a few bucks..epstein family gona sue and get more..or testify against somebody who aint dead

  • Exploitation in different forms

    At INTERPOL, we work to ensure police are trained and equipped to identify and investigate cases of human trafficking in all its forms, including:

    For forced labour or domestic servitude;

    For sexual exploitation;

    For forced criminal activities, such as begging, pickpocketing or online crime;

    For the removal of organs.

    Protecting children

    Minors are particularly vulnerable to trafficking, as they are more easily manipulated and often don’t realize they are the victims of crime. Some may feel they are being protected by their so-called employers, particularly if they are given meals and accommodations.
    INTERPOL recognizes the crucial role played by child protection units, social services and NGOs in our member countries. We regularly engage and involve them in our activities to ensure children are given the proper attention and care throughout investigations and operations.

    INTERPOL's response to human trafficking

    We strive to empower police in our member countries to investigate and handle cases of human trafficking. This is done via:

    Training: building long-term capacity by sharing the latest investigation and victim interview techniques with officers;

    INTERPOL’s policing capabilities and expertise: tools and systems for sharing intelligence globally;

    Global operations: concrete action in the field to disrupt and dismantle human trafficking networks;

    Partnerships: working across sectors to improve the ways in which trafficking can be identified, reported and investigated;

    Events and conferences: gathering experts from across the world;

    Specialist groups which focus on frontline police work and the exchange of operational information;

    Resources: covering general information, international legislation, and law enforcement guides and manuals.

    Human trafficking vs. people smuggling

    Closely connected to human trafficking is people smuggling, or smuggling of migrants.
    In this case, smuggling networks facilitate the illegal entry of an individual into a country of which he is neither a citizen nor a permanent resident. Although migrants can fall vulnerable to human trafficking, generally speaking, once the smuggler has been paid, the relationship between the migrant and the smuggler ends.

  • fairy princess or something whatever says:

    When the prosecutors ask to dismiss the case it tells you all you need to know about justice!! This woman deserve respect!!
