Nonetheless, one huge factor stays:
What about Jeffrey Epstein’s shoppers and pals. We all know he frolicked with high-powered rich males like Invoice Clinton and Invoice Gates.
These two and others like Wall Avenue titan Leon Black are all saying they’d no thought what Jeffrey Epstein was doing and remorse giving him the credibility that got here with assembly them.
However is that plausible?

“I had nightmares about it afterward. So my coronary heart breaks for these younger ladies.”
Now, Musk — who’s now beneath investigation by the Biden administration — seems to be questioning why Epstein, who reportedly hung himself in lock-up after his arrest — and Ghislaine are the one ones being punished since there seem like many others who have been concerned of their ‘actions,’ in accordance with varied stories.
