    Yes people who threaten high political figures get suicideded in Bulgaria too. Happy to see the free America is learning from us. One small critic though. When you suicide someone make sure they find a notebook that points other "problematic" people as partners in crime. P.S thats actually a thing here look it up xD . Welcome to the modern world people.

    I made hundreds of millions and can afford the best lawyers that money can buy-I think I’ll just commit suicide and give up.

    Like Acosta said he was an "intelligence asset" (CIA and Mossad) and blackmailer. Whitney Webb did great research!:

    After his death, the government should strip all of his remaining assets to combat against debt.

    How does this reporter know that Epstein died by suicide just hours after they found the body? Is this reporter a medical examiner / coroner? My oh my, how they do jump to conclusions.

    "A child rapist mysteriously died in prison".

    Considering it's a well known fact that child rapists are treated like chew toys in prison. I honestly feel like they're insulting our intelligence by acting like no one knows the real reason the animal was put down.
