In principle, I'd be pretty comfortable with $1 million, but there is an obvious verification problem based on the fact that Trump's minions will be in charge of the investigation. As a Bayesian prior, I'd put a far higher probability of the death being caused by somebody from the Trump camp than from the Clintons. It may be time to recall the Trump quote: "I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side." Probably no skeletons in that closet...

Why not Trump and Clinton? In most important cases people work together.

Trump is very comfortable working with people like Putin, Kim and Duterte. Somebody with slightly democratic leanings, I don't think so. There is certainly no evidence to date for such a thing.

Privates should hate, because they kill each other. Generals should be friends, they don't kill, they talk

Here's a theory. Like Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lamb's, they simply found a dead man with Epstein's face. He, instead, is on his way to parts unknown. When you have zillions, anything is possible, including bribing the coroner.  :D

Why so complex? It's not about Epstein's face, it's about Epstein's memory. Death is a perfect way of erasing it.

I was sure the man was going to die the day he was arrested. C'mon, he was a danger for at least three countries. And my predition was accurate, unlike yours. It's politics, dude, the same for the last six thousand years.

Whitey Bolger suffered the same fate as did the Serbian mass murderers in the Hague luxury prison.

So Trump is pissing all over the prime minister of Sweden because a friend of the Kardashians is being prosecuted for a violent attack that he carried out in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago. Because Trump had seen a video on the internet (just slightly edited) demonstrating the innocence of said wrapper.
Minor update. Trump’s favorite black dude was found guilty of assault by the Swedish court, but merely sentenced to a conditional prison term. In other words, he got away with it. Whether the political meddling played a role or not in the lenient sentencing we shall probably never know.

The US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has warned that if Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement there will be no chance of a US-UK trade deal being passed by Congress.

Nancy has been saying that for at least a couple of months, and definitely means it. Meanwhile, if there were any doubt that Mitch Fucking McConnell was as corrupt as Trump, that has been removed. And as slimy, which is an accomplishment! Basically, another Putin stooge with a nod to the evangelicals.

So, imagine having a tight budget for both time and money. Then the grand fucker comes to give a speech, and your choice is to come and listen or to forfeit your hard earned time or money. Hardly fair! https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/17/politics/workers-trump-speech-attend-pto-no-pay/index.html
