Too bad Epstein can no longer be convinced to participate in this investigation.

It’s almost like somebody wanted him out of the way.

The FBI is investigating British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and several other people linked to U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, according to two law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation.

They said a principal focus of the FBI’s investigation is Maxwell, a longtime associate of Epstein, and other “people who facilitated” Epstein’s allegedly illegal behaviour.

Maxwell has not been accused of criminal wrongdoing. Her lawyers Jeffrey Pagliuca and Ty Gee did not respond to a request for comment.

The FBI also is following up on many leads received from women who contacted a hotline the agency set up at its New York field office in the wake of Epstein’s arrest in July, the sources said.

One of the sources said the probe remains at an early stage.

The sources declined to give further details or identify the people they are looking at apart from Maxwell. However, they said the FBI has no current plans to interview Britain’s Prince Andrew, a friend of Epstein’s who stepped down from his public duties in November because of what he called his “ill-judged” association with the well-connected money manager.

I am going to pay attention to this investigation because I am convinced that somebody associated with Epstein took him out. 

I never thought it had anything to do with Prince Andrew and the royal family since they would have difficulty infiltrating the New York prison system, and it also seems a little heavy handed for them. 

I dismiss the Clintons as suspects for the same reason, and I also doubt, despite Right Wing conspiracy theories to the contrary,  that Bill and Hillary are murderers. 

No, the likely suspect would be somebody working in the Justice Department or with connections to the New York prison system. 

Can you think of anybody like that?
