Congressman Spells Out ‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’

November 14, 2019 Updated: November 14, 2019

While posting on Twitter about the open impeachment hearing on Nov. 14, a Congressman spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) spelled the phrase out using the first letter of 23 different posts.

The content of the tweets, though, were focused on the impeachment efforts against President Donald Trump.

In the first tweet in the series, which was posted last, Gosar wrote: “Evidence of a link between foreign aid and political investigations simply does not exist. The longer this circus continues the clearer it becomes that @realDonaldTrump has done absolutely nothing wrong.”

That “E” was followed by another post that started with “P.”

“President @realDonaldTrump voluntarily chose to release the transcript of his phone call which clearly shows he did nothing wrong. This impeachment circus is a total sham, and Adam Schiff is the clown at the center of it all,” Gosar wrote.

After some noticed Gosar’s spelling out of “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” Gosar added another missive joking about what he’d done.

“Epstein didn’t kill himself” refers to financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was found unconscious in his New York prison cell on Aug. 10.

Epstein, 66, was pronounced dead 67 minutes later.

While the New York City medical examiner later ruled the death a suicide, a number of people have suggested Epstein was actually murdered. According to one survey, only a third of American voters believe that Epstein committed suicide.

Dr. Michael Baden, a forensic specialist hired by Epstein’s brother Mark Epstein, claimed that Epstein might have died from homicide, but Dr. Barbara Sampson, the city’s medical examiner, stood by the suicide conclusion.

Mark Epstein later said that contusions on Epstein’s wrists and several other injuries remained unexplained.

“Those are unexplained. Was he handcuffed and struggled? Was someone holding his wrists?” he said. “The marks on his wrist are unexplained.”
