Just days after the release of 2,000 sealed FOIA files, Child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was discovered dead in his prison.
Recently charged with sexually abussing dozens of young girls in the early 2000s, the politically connected financial and registered sex offender died of apparent suicide while in prison.
The billionaire supposedly hanged himself in his jail cell in Lower Manhattan, according to various U.S. accounts.
This happened after the court un-sealed over 2,000 previously sealed documents as requested by multiple media sources as FOIA. Details in the un-sealed report has the clintons written all over it.
Details from one of the Unsealed Document states that “Bill Clinton held a private event on Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island, according to one of Epstein’s victims. Clinton had previously denied ever being on the island.”
According to NBC news, in his New York City jail cell with marks around his neck, “Epstein, who faces a possible 45 years if convicted on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy, was found to be semi-conscious.
The news “Jeffrey Epstein Found Dead in Prison” was a sensational gist for conspiracy theorists and far-right pundits who went to Twitter to suggest that Esptein’s injuries might somehow be related to former State Secretary Hillary Clinton.
After documents were unsealed yesterday revealing that top Democrats, including @BillClinton, took private trips to Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophilic, sex island— he was found dead in his cmassiveell.

Beyond the unsubstantiated claims of Bill Clinton’s involvement in Epstein’s death, the video also contains misinformation; for instance, it says that Epstein died while being monitored on suicide watch. Officials have said Epstein in fact was not on suicide watch when he died.
