Epstein’s Guards Were Working Extreme Overtime

There are so many stories and conspiracy theories about Epstein’s death, all of them or none of them could be true.

The guards on Jeffrey Epstein’s unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for shortages in staffing the morning of his apparent suicide, according to The Associated Press.

They reported that the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit, where Epstein was staying, was being guarded by a guard who was working his fifth consecutive day of overtime and another guard who was working mandatory overtime. Epstein was reportedly supposed to be checked on in his cell every 30 minutes, and that did not occur the night of his ostensible suicide.

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, expressed his outrage in a letter to Attorney General William Barr, he wrote “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.”

There are so many stories and conspiracy theories about Epstein’s death, all of them or none of them could be true. The questions we need to be asking, however, are the ones we still don’t have the answers to, for instance who is Jeffrey Epstein? Where did he get all his money? What associations with our government or other governments did he have? Could he have been working for an Intelligence agency, American or Foreign? In fact, has anyone even considered that Jeffrey Epstein could have been an intelligent source, and his island could have been the ultimate trap to ensnare political power players for either control or information? That is the question people should be asking.
