Epstein hired multiple lawyers to meet with him to avoid being kept in cell before his death: report

Published

on

On Saturday, The New York Times published an account of the final days of high-powered wealth manager Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead of apparent suicide in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center while facing trial for child sex trafficking.

One of the key new revelations from the report is that Epstein despised his cell, which was “cramped, dank and infested with vermin” — so he used his vast wealth to exploit a legal loophole in the prison system that would let him spend most of his time outside of it: hire a bunch of lawyers to come and talk to him for hours and hours so he could get a private room to himself.

During these marathon sessions, Epstein’s legal team reportedly kept emptying the vending machines.

Epstein, who ran a billionaires-only offshore hedge fund whose clients still remain a secret, has long gotten out of accountability for his actions using his fortune — most famously, to obtain a sweetheart plea deal from prosecutors when they first began investigating his “sex parties” in the mid-2000s, and then to rehabilitate his public image in the aftermath of those allegations.

MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes blasted Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for white supremacy on Monday.

Hayes played clips of Carlson discussing white supremacy on-air.

"If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns, of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It is actually not a real problem in America," Carlson falsely claimed. "This is a hoax."

Hayes blasted the segment.

"Tucker Carlson wants you to believe the concern about white supremacy in America is a hoax, which is very convenient for a guy who's show has been dabbling in it for years," Hayes noted. "The truth is that white supremacy is alive and well in this country, on TV and certain corners of the internet where racists get together and post this stuff."

Republican blasted as ‘embarrassment to the state of Texas’ by Lincoln Project strategist: ‘You’re laughable’

Published

on

The anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project is moving into Texas, with new spending against Sen. John Cornyn, a major figure in the GOP majority and a close ally of the president.

Cornyn, unhappy about this, lashed out at the group on Twitter.

This cabal of political consultants is all in it for the money. If they actually cared about the country, they wouldn't be working to advance the socialist, anarchist agenda of the radical left. Pathetic. https://t.co/gkRKJswCyo
