Epstein is no Different than Magnitsky — Martin Armstrong

This is what struck me immediately on learning of Epstein's "passing," the near certainty of which I had mentioned to a friend several days before. He asked me, "Do you mean he will be 'suicided?"

Of course, this remains just a hypothesis based on a suspicion that is based on "cui bono?" The truth of the matter will likely never be established to the satisfaction of all. Even if it is "established through evidence" in an investigation, the result won't be universally accepted, for good reasons based on previous investigations. Then the dissenters will be called conspiracy theorists. What else is new?

But I would say that there is a fundamental difference between the two cases in terms of cui bono, which you will recognize if you have been following the Magnitsky-Browder affair.

Epstein's lawyer said Epstein was not suicidal. He said that a lot of very powerful people wanted him dead, and if they really want you dead, there is no place where they can't get you.

Chilling stuff!

Eric Margolis wrote this a few weeks ago, FYI:

But none was odder than the day I was invited to lunch in New York City with the by now notorious figure Jeffrey Epstein. The golden boy of Manhattan and Palm Beach society now sits in a grim jail cell accused of having sex with underage girls. He’s been doing this in plain view since the early 1990’s but, until recently, he seemed bullet-proof.

Soon after I walked into the entrance of Epstein’s mansion on E 71st Street, said to be the city’s largest private home, a butler asked me, ‘would you like an intimate massage, sir, by a pretty young girl?’ This offer seemed so out of place and weird to me that I swiftly declined.

More important than indelicacy, as an old observer of intelligence affairs, to me this offer reeked of ye old honey trap, a tactic to ensnare and blackmail people that was old when Babylon was young. A discreet room with massage table, lubricants and, no doubt, cameras stood ready off the main lobby.
