Wonder why that is, do you think...?

Obama is no longer, president, BTW. This is Trump's watch, and his alone.

Epstein is a Clinton thing, not Trump. But nice try.

All the Trump/Epstein good buddy stories , complete with photos , stories ad nauseam just a couple of weeks ago and now at the high drama suicide finale of Trump's good life long buddy , how many stories on the news sites / Sunday Shows mentioning the friendship ???
0 !
Zilch !
Not One !
Can you say OOPS!
Just another case of the socialists stepping on their own appendages again in their zeal to get Trump .
And who can blame them when their proclaimed final and best hope is " BIDEN 3030 "
I mean can you imagine how senile the guy will be in 3030 ?

A lot of the reports on Epstein compiled by law enforcement, were released to the pubic on the day before Epstein was found dead in his prison cell.

You'd think these reports would be a gold mine, a treasure trove of information on what the rich and famous (and powerful) have been doing, where they've been doing it, and who they've been doing it with. Enough leads for the media to pursue, research, network, cross-check, and find out salacious and revealing stories, for at least as long as "The Dossier" kept them occupied (several years).

But has the media jumped in with both feet, as they did with a faked "dossier" about Donald Trump?

Nope. No curiosity.

Most of them haven't even mentioned the release of the documents.

Will they ever?

Why was a man who had already attempted suicide in jail, taken off Suicide Watch just a few weeks afterward? Who took him off?

Why did the guards detailed to keep him alive anyway, not do so? Why did they not follow mandated procedures, in one of the highest-security prisons in the country, for the highest-profile prisoner they had had in a while? Did they have anything better to do that night?

Jeffrey Epstein's guards 'did NOT check his cell according to procedure' the night he hanged himself

by CHRIS SPARGO and ANDREW COURT and JENNY STANTON and MEGAN SHEETS FOR DAILYMAIL.COM
PUBLISHED: 23:58 EDT, 10 August 2019 | UPDATED: 09:45 EDT, 11 August 2019

Guards at Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan jail did not follow procedure and check on prisoners every 30 minutes the night the pedophile took his own life, a source has revealed.

The source told the news agency that two jail guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center are required to make separate checks on all prisoners every 30 minutes, but that procedure was not followed overnight. In addition, every 15 minutes guards are required to make another check on prisoners who are on suicide watch.

The decision to remove Epstein, who was possibly the most high-profile inmate in the federal jail system, from suicide watch has both baffled former wardens and veterans of the federal prison system alike.

A separate source revealed to DailyMail.com that Epstein actually told prison guards and fellow inmates that he believed someone had tried to kill him in the weeks before his death. The insider, who had seen the disgraced financier on several occasions during his incarceration at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, also claims that the normally reserved Epstein seemed to be in good spirits. 'There was no indication that he might try to take his own life,' the source told DailyMail.com 'From what I saw, he was finally starting to adjust to prison. I think he was comforted by the rigidity of his new life.'

But his suicide comes two weeks after he was hospitalized following what may have been an initial attempt to take his own life.

The news that guards failed to follow procedure and Epstein's fears of being a target come amid growing outrage that the pedophile escaped justice and his alleged victims may never get closure they so desperately need.

Epstein was arrested by the feds on President Trump and AG Barr's watch. All of this material was released on Trump and Barr's watch. And it appears that there is more to come, as other child sex crimes and criminals who have have previously been given a free pass are now going to be investigated and hopefully held accountable.

All of this stuff could have been done during the Obama's eight years. But no. Two AG's - Holder and Lynch - and crickets.

Instead, it is now, during the Trump administration, that these people are being brought to justice and held accountable.

It was front page news on every mainstream media source I have seen and a top story on the evening news. Trump's name shows up in the docs too as a passenger on the plane of the guy he claims he hardly knew. The release did get overshadowed by the demise of Epstein.

He was taken off suicide watch on purpose, just look at the recent document release. Let him kill himself and all those dark secrets regarding former and current politicians from both sides of the aisle die with him

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote Saturday in a scathing letter to [Attorney General] Barr that “heads must roll” after the incident.

“Every single person in the Justice Department — from your Main Justice headquarters staff all the way to the night-shift jailer — knew that this man was a suicide risk, and that his dark secrets couldn’t be allowed to die with him,” Sasse wrote.

Epstein’s removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and the facility’s chief psychologist, said Jack Donson, a former prison official who worked for the Bureau of Prisons for more than two decades.
