Well, as @It's HK-47 pointed out, Trump couldn't just have Epstein arrested the moment he got into office.Have a source on that? I've been curious as to why now as opposed to lets say a year ago, because they've had the evidence for a long time.
Criminal investigations of any kind take a lot of time, even moreso when it's done on the federal level. Keep in mind that Trump and the DOJ were bogged down by the Mueller investigation and the very obstructive combined efforts of the Democrats, the mainstream media, and the Neocon holdouts like John McCain and Bill Kristol.
However, between Trump aggressively stacking the judiciary with his guys and the Democrats shooting themselves in the foot over Brett Kavanaugh, combined with the fact that in the past year and a half leading up to the Epstein arrest, we saw major federal crackdowns on child sex abuse and human trafficking in general, I think something is up.
Where there's this much smoke, there's bound to be at least a spark or two. My best guess is that Trump's been using the DOJ to go after human trafficking and child sexual abuse as aggressively as he can, and it's likely that Epstein was one of the bigwigs who was implicated in a prior investigation.
Since Epstein already had a record but got off very easily and Trump viewed him with enough suspicion to ban him from Mar-A-Lago years before he even entered politics, it'd be a fairly open and shut case against him.
The fact that his arrest uncovered a bunch of dirt on other heavy-hitters in the New York raid alone is troubling to say the least.
Now, I personally think the Pizzagate crowd are largely unhinged Dale Gribble types who probably would have been in the left-wing 9/11 truther crowd a decade ago, but then again, with these weird things, I can definitely see why so many people would jump to conspiracy theories.
Q-Anon is likely just some 4chan shitpost that was taken way too seriously by Facebook grannies and redneck Boomers but there is a kernel of truth to the basic premise of the shitpost.
There definitely IS an internal struggle in the federal government and we see this with the FBI more than any other of the federal agencies right now.
The FBI's claims that white supremacists are the real terrorist threat to America while at the same time, trying to go out of their way to exonerate left-wing extremists like Antifa and Black Lives Matter and downplay the danger of the Islamic fundamentalist movement abroad is very suspicious.
Especially after another FBI memo around the same time indicated that white supremacist criminal activity was on the decline after several major crackdowns, while at the same time black supremacist groups were becoming more violent and far more militant than ever before and so were leftist and anarchist groups, with the implication that many of these black supremacist militants were collaborating with the militant leftists.
Personally, I don't think that the FBI is intentionally covering for some Satanic pedophile death cult comprised entirely of the global elites. But I do think there is an internal struggle within the FBI defined by an ideological conflict.
This conflict is likely one between the mostly conservative and centrist elements who just want to do their job and bring criminals to justice and the more left-leaning or neoliberal agents who are more politicized overall and more willing to accept financial backing from Silicon Valley or the Democratic Party.
I think the main internal struggle within the FBI is between those with actual integrity who want to put sick fucks like Epstein behind bars for good versus the more shady elements who will be more willing to look the other way if it means they can get massive financial support from wealthy benefactors in places like Hollywood or Silicon Valley.
I don't think there's some Illuminati of Moloch-worshipping freaks running the world, as that honestly is some low-quality Jack Chick-tier lunacy.
But there is definitely some sort of major internal conflict within the federal government and possibly a low-intensity coup in the making within these upper echelons of power. Occam's Razor would indicate that this internal struggle is mostly divided along lines of social and political ideology and is also exacerbated by those seeking more financial or political clout.
Epstein's death has only raised more questions and has made things more foggy and chaotic. He was a dead man walking any way and there was no way he could get off easy like he did in 2009.
It's honestly just as likely of him to have actually committed suicide in his cell as it would be if someone in high places had him assassinated.
