Trump defends sharing baseless conspiracy theory about Epstein’s death by man who pretended to hang himself with toilet roll to prove Clintons were involved

Trump defends sharing baseless conspiracy theory about Epstein’s death by man who pretended to hang himself with toilet roll to prove Clintons were involvedDonald Trump has insisted he was justified in promoting a baseless conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein’s death because the man he retweeted “has half-a-million followers”. The US president shared a tweet on Saturday by right-wing commentator Terrence K Williams, who baselessly suggested in the video post that the Clinton family had the paedophile financier killed due to former president Bill Clinton’s past association with him. “He had information on the Clintons, and the man ended up dead,” Mr Williams said in a rambling two-minute diatribe. It was posted the same day Epstein was found hanged in his New York prison cell in what the FBI said was an "apparent suicide". On Tuesday, it was reported two guards fell asleep briefly on the night of the 66-year-old's death, then attempted to falsify records. Epstein was facing new sex trafficking and conspiracy charges over allegations he operated an international child sex trafficking ring. He was set to stand trial next year and was facing 45 years in jail if convicted. Asked by reporters outside his New Jersey golf resort on Tuesday to clarify his retweet of Mr Williams, Mr Trump said: “He’s a big Trump fan. That was a retweet, it wasn’t from me, that was from him, but the man has half a million followers, a lot of followers.” The president also said Mr Williams was a “very highly respected conservative pundit”. > Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happenJefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead > > I see TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! > > RT if you’re not SurprisedEpsteinSuicide ClintonBodyCount ClintonCrimeFamily pic.twitter.com/Y9tGAWaAxX> > — Terrence K. Williams (@w_terrence) > > August 10, 2019Mr Trump's comments came after Mr Williams doubled down on his conspiracy theorising when he sarcastically pretended to try and hang himself on video with toilet roll to purportedly show Mr Epstein could not have killed himself.Last year, Mr Williams was cut short by Fox News during an interview for being too racist, when he called an Asian-American New York Times journalist "Crazy-nese" and said there was "something wrong with them fortune cookies that Ling Ling's eating".Asked by one reporter if he really believed the Clintons were involved in Epstein’s death, Mr Trump suggested there was merit to the conspiracy theory when he said he had “no idea” if it was true, but that Mr Clinton had been on Epstein’s private plane.Mr Trump also noted attorney general William Barr had ordered an investigation into Epstein's death, adding: “I want a full investigation, and that's what I absolutely am demanding."Epstein’s death came a day after new legal documents, unsealed by a court, provided more details about the numerous young girls the financier is said to have abused over several decades.The documents related to a defamation lawsuit brought by Virginia Giuffre, who said she was abused over a period of years by Epstein and members of his circle, which included a number of high-profile men from the worlds of business and politics.

QAnon Believers Crushed After Mueller Report Fails to Lead to Hillary Clinton’s Arrest

QAnon Believers Crushed After Mueller Report Fails to Lead to Hillary Clinton’s ArrestPhoto Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast / Photos by GettyWhile most of Donald Trump’s allies braced for the release on Thursday of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, believers in the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory approached the long-awaited publication with a sense of thrill. For years, QAnon fans have been mocked for believing that Mueller was secretly in league with the president, working hand-in-hand to uncover Satanic rituals committed by top Democrats before shipping them off to Guantanamo Bay. They had been told it was ridiculous to base their entire political worldview on a series of anonymous clues posted on internet message boards—including one that claimed Hillary Clinton was secretly arrested in October 2017.Now, after all the chanting and waving of “Q” signs at Trump rallies, their hour of vindication was at hand.Liz Crokin, a leading QAnon promoter, predicted on Wednesday that Mueller’s report would uncover leading Democrats committing crimes that are “punishable by death.” “I think the Mueller Report will reveal some indicators that the real crimes that took places were committed by Hillary Clinton, Obama, and some of their associates,” Crokin told The Daily Beast. Crokin wasn’t alone. “Patriots’ Soapbox,” a 24-hour YouTube livestream devoted to decoding QAnon clues, urged viewers to check back Thursday for a “BIG day.” Joe Masepoes, a QAnon promoter whose pro-QAnon videos have been shared by celebrities like former baseball star Curt Schilling, urged his followers to “be here tomorrow.”But when the Mueller report arrived on Thursday morning, it contained none of the bombshell, global pedophile cabal-destroying revelations QAnon fans had predicted. Instead, it detailed a Russian campaign of electoral subterfuge that benefited Trump’s election efforts, along with repeated attempts by the president to impede investigations into his conduct. Unhappy QAnon believers were left to grapple with the letdown. As the report’s lack of QAnon proofs became clear, the Patriots’ Soapbox livestream quickly moved onto other topics like human trafficking. The channel’s viewers weren’t fooled, though. The comment section quickly filled up with disappointed QAnon fans. On Voat, a Reddit-style forum alternative popular with QAnon fans, believers lamented the fact that they had been duped again. “Trump is toast,” said one poster who said he wouldn’t vote in 2020 after the disappointment. “Lied to us to extend his re-election. Good luck Q peeps. I’m done here.”This isn’t the first time QAnon loyalists have been promised confirmation of their bizarre ideas, only to be disappointed. In June 2018, “Q”—the anonymous person or group of people behind the vague clues that have been strung into QAnon—had promised that a Department of Justice inspector general report would bring down Clinton. That report didn’t include the revelations QAnon believers were promised either. One angry, armed QAnon believer responded to that let-down by shutting down a bridge near the Hoover Dam with an improvised armored truck. While QAnon believers grappled with what the Mueller report actually meant, the movement’s foes—including those in Trumpworld—took the opportunity to gloat. Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka, whose frequent attacks on QAnon have made him a top enemy of Q-heads, took to Twitter on Thursday to urge QAnon believers to “LeaveTheCult.”“As of this morning: Q and QAnon are dead,” Gorka tweeted.Read more at The Daily Beast.
