Epstein’s ‘bizarre’ treatment during stay in jail filled with multiple oddities: Washington Post investigative reporter

Published

on

Appearing with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Washington Post investigative reporter Carol Leoning noted multiple irregularities in the way convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was treated while in jail that may have contributed to his death.

During her appearance on “AM Joy,” Leoning was asked about the facility and what measures are taken to prevent suicides.

“I’m not an expert on this facility, but I believe there are a lot of protections to prevent this kind of thing from happening,” she confessed. “We just don’t know enough yet to say how it happened just as we still don’t know, two weeks later, what happened on July 23rd. I think that, you know, it’s scary and worrisome for conspiracy theorists to spread rumors about what could or should have happened, but it is reasonable to ask the question what do we know, what do the tapes show and when was the last time somebody saw him alive?”

“My understanding is if someone exhibits suicidal ideation and they attempt to actually hurt themselves, they would then be on suicide watch, and it wouldn’t be brief,” Reid prompted. “There’d be a constant monitoring of that person. Does it read as logical to you someone this famous being accused of predation on children — which normally can lead to violence against you in prison, these are people targeted, people who allegedly molest kids — would it make sense to you to take someone like that who’s that high profile off suicide watch?”

“No. I mean, everything about this, Joy, is so odd,” Leoning remarked. “The July 23rd incident is a red flag. The fact he was in a cell with a roommate who is about four times his size and is an accused — a former police officer who’s accused of killing four people — the fact that was his roommate is also odd.”

“Again, that’s back to July 23rd. I don’t know understand how they run the prison. I just know these things sort of stand out as bizarre, and now he’s dead an, honestly for his victims, you know, what in the world should they feel at this moment?” she added.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.

Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.
