Well, that didn’t take long. After Jefferey Epstein’s alleged suicide Saturday morning, former Democratic congressional candidate Pam Keith took to Twitter to let everyone know that Epstein’s suicide is the fault of Republicans.

Keith, a lawyer and former Navy JAG, pinned the blame squarely on Attorney General Bill Barr who serves the government of the United States which is currently being led by President Donald Trump, who is a Republican. Therefore…Republicans.

Trump seems to have the same ties to Epstein that almost every ridiculously wealthy person on the east coast. They all traveled in the same social circles and rubbed elbows at the same parties. He also knew enough about Epstein to have him banned from his Mar-a-Lago country club in Florida. There can be no doubt that Trump knows more than he’s telling, even if it’s just gossip (but I suspect it is much more). However, it seems a bit…hopeful to suppose no one has more to lose than 45.

Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s jet – known as the “Lolita Express” more than 26 times. The Clintons have nothing but politics. Their entire fortunes are based on being political figures. It is the only legacy they have. Trump only has the presidency to lose, and that’s not even the 4th most lucrative thing he’s done in his life.

That’s not to say that Trump is guilty of anything…or Clinton for that matter. These are all allegations, and after today it seems that’s all they’ll ever be. But it feels like a desperate stretch to supposed Trump is the most concerned with Epstein’s utterances, or that he has the most to lose.

But hey, this is 2019 and Twitter’s gonna Twitter.
