    Financier Jeffrey Epstein looks on near Judge Richard Berman during a status hearing in his sex trafficking case, in this court sketch in New York, July 31, 2019more +His alleged crimes were thrown back into the spotlight amid renewed scrutiny of the plea deal Epstein reached with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in 2007, led by then-U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta. A non-prosecution agreement allowed Epstein, a hedge-fund manager, to plead guilty to two state charges and avoid federal charges for an allegedly broad pattern of similar sexual misconduct. He would serve just 13 months of an 18-month sentence in county jail in Florida.

    The victims in that case were not made aware of the negotiations for nearly a year after the agreement was signed, according to their attorney.
    The deal is currently under review by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility. Acosta was serving as President Trump's Labor Secretary amid the controversy over his role in the deal. He later resigned from that position.

    I am not usually a conspiracy theorist, but I find this to be pretty suspicious. He had the info to take a lot of powerful people down and nothing to lose given what he was facing.

    From former SDNY prosecutor Mimi Rocah:
    "Mimi Rocah

    I’m stunned because he was on suicide watch according to
    @nypost
    . I don’t understand how he had the ability to commit suicide. I’ve never heard of that happening. Curious if other prosecutors, defense attorney friends have."

    Yeah I’m not a conspiracy theorist at all but he’d already tried to kill himself once so you’d think he’d be on suicide watch...

    I do agree with you BUT maybe information that they might eventually have been able to get out of him

    They should fire the entire line of management at this prison amd up through the warden. Then launch a criminal investigation. They had ONE job to do - keep this guy alive.

    He was basically a dead man anyway. If he managed to get out I’m sure he had a huge target on his back from all sides. The alternative was pretty much life in prison.

    This is so fucked up. This guy had so much information and now it's all gone. Someone, somewhere was paid an assload to make this happen and a bunch of pedophiles are walking free.

    Disgusting.

    I find this incredibly suspicious, especially since he was supposedly on suicide watch since July 23rd and then yesterday there was that article naming a bunch of new names as clients.

    Is it too early for conspiracy theories?

    Sure, he could have testified against other people, I just don't see that it was likely that he would.
