Straight-Arrow Prosecutors: Video Footage of Jeffrey Epstein's Cell During His First Attempted " " " Suicide " " " Attempt Has Been " " " Inadvertently " " " Erased

Sure, that's exactly what must have happened.

See, they did preserve video footage.

It's just that, they preserved video footage from an entirely different tier of the jail.



In a Thursday filing, Swergold admitted that the Metropolitan Correctional Center had preserved footage amid the investigation -- only it was the wrong cell in the Lower Manhattan jail.

"The Government has learned that the MCC inadvertently preserved video from the wrong tier within the MCC, and, as a result, video from outside the defendant's cell on July 22 23, 2019 (i.e. the requested video) no longer exists," the letter reads.

Don't worry, though. This is all on the up-and-up.

A corrupt cop currently on trial for a quadruple homicide while working with the drug cartels is trying to prove that it wasn't he who caused Epstein's neck injuries that day.

A lawyer for Epstein's one-time cellmate, Nicholas Tartaglione, has been seeking the footage in order to prove that his client -- a former cop who is awaiting trial for a quadruple homicide -- is not responsible for the neck injuries Epstein sustained while they shared a cell weeks before the suicide.

The letter claims MCC staff were misled by a computer system that wrongly listed Tartaglione as being housed in a different cell during those dates -- and therefore kept the footage from outside that incorrect cell.

Prosecutors say they realized the mistake after the facility turned over footage on Jan. 3.

Via Instapundit, who comments:

So Epstein was put in a cell with a dirty cop linked to Mexican cartels? Really?

When this broke, I joked that Hillary Clinton had paid a corrupt cop to kill Epstein.

Why a cop? Because they can move in and out of jails and they know enough people who can "forget" to note that they entered at such and such a time.

Why corrupt? Well, obviously if you're going to pay a cop to do a murder, you'd like him to be corrupt.

And of course: Democrat politicians know a lot of corrupt cops.

I imagine the Clintons have a long list of dirty cops they can, and occasionally do, hire for sundry purposes.

I just said that as a joke, just riffing on the most obvious scenario.


Well, who knows. This particular guy is trying to get the videotape to prove his innocence, and certainly he himself didn't erase the videotape.

Still, this is all extremely suspicious.

My first thought was "Well we sure don't want any dirty cops, one foot in the government, the other foot in organized crime in Jeffrey Epstein's cell."

But our straight-arrow betters had a different thought entirely. Apparently they thought, "That's exactly the kind of guy we want in the cell with the politically-inconvenient Epstein."

Why is it that the sort of person a casual observer thinks of as the most likely sort of man to be a paid assassin taking care of someone else's political problem is the exact same sort of man the Democrats put in the same cell as Jeffrey Epstein?

The government and civil "service" and law enforcement aren't really this corrupt that they could attempt not one but two arranged "suicide attempts" and then just delete the videotape and expect their fellow civil "servants" to cover for them, are they?

Are they?!

Is this what America really is?
