Back in late August, it was revealed Jeffrey Epstein, two weeks before his supposed suicide, put $577 million in a bulletproof trust fund.
“Estate lawyers and other experts say prying open the trust and dividing up the financier’s riches is not going to be easy and could take years,” the AP reported on August 22.
But more than preventing his victims from receiving compensation for his acts of abuse, the trust fund effectively locks down the names of people involved in his child-sex-blackmail scheme.
By putting his fortune in a trust, he shrouded from public view the identities of the beneficiaries, whether they be individuals, organizations or other entities. For the women trying to collect from his estate, the first order of business will be persuading a judge to pierce that veil and release the details.
Did Epstein commit suicide? We have no way of knowing for sure. There is very little verifiable evidence this is the case. The state announced “suicide” is a given fact, according to the corporate media now referring to Epstein in the past tense.
It’s another example of how the corporate media faithfully reads from government scripts and refuses to ask the appropriate questions and demand evidence when officials make statements. Investigative and skeptical journalism is no longer acceptable, that is unless it attacks the establishment’s political enemies.
Notice how the corporate stenographic media has zero questions about Epstein’s highly suspicious suicide, the broken cameras, supposedly sleeping guards, and the autopsy that reveals Epstein (or his double) probably died from strangulation, not as the result of a prison sheet with low thread count designed to rip and tear if a prisoner attempts suicide by hanging in a cell designed to prevent suicides.
