Jeffrey Epstein’s Dead

Jeffrey Epstein is dead.  Right now, his death is being reported as a suicide.  Undoubtedly, there are a lot of powerful people who are breathing a sigh of relief this morning.

When someone like Jeffrey Epstein dies, the natural impulse is to say, “Good riddance” and maybe to mourn that he didn’t suffer more.  What is often forgotten is that Epstein couldn’t have done what he did if he didn’t have powerful people protecting and enabling him.  From what little came out before Epstein death, this scandal sounded like it had the potential to be an American Profumo Affair.

Now that he’s dead, expect to see all those stories and investigations pushed to the side.
