    Maybe it's a warning for him to keep quiet?

    Did he have a rope around his neck and smell like bleach?

    He shouldbe protected, kept alive, if only for the slightest chance for more info.

    We'll see what happens, I hope you are right.

    If this was a suicide attempt, will they consider him too insane to hold trial?
    If it's not a suicide attempt, they need to put him in solitary with camera on him at all times. Watch who visits and no outside food allowed in his cell.

    On the other hand, it may be a self inflicted cry for help because he fears they are coming after him.

    Insane? Based on what? He has cause to be highly despondent and suicidal, but that is perfectly rational in his situation.

    Strange. Most of Clintons' friends commit suicide by shooting themselves in the back of their head.

    Posing a question, if he's legally labeled insane, regardless if he is or not, doesn't that muddy testimony he might give against other pillars of leadership?

    I can't see the type of people postulated by such a theory as taking that chance, I think if an operative of theirs had their hands around Epstein's neck, he would be room temp. Him saying nothing at all is much better for them than trying to spin any testimony

    Based on what I think you're asking, there are 2 kinds of "insanity" that you might be referring to.

    The first it basically fitness for trial. In a nutshell, if someone can't understand what is happening to them, you can't put them on trial. If, for instance, Epstein suffered brain damage and has no higher brain function, they are unlikely to ever try him. The somewhat good news is that he'd stay (I think) in a jail-like medical facility until he either dies or achieves enough brain function to stand trial.

    The other kind that you might be thinking of is the insanity defense. That is a remarkably poor defense in the child molestation arena, although it has been tried before. I doubt his trial team would go with that.

    If they raise some sort of mental issue, it may impact a jury's view of his capacity to tell the truth. But, realistically, I'm not sure he'd be able to testify in his own defense. All sorts of conduct could come in and be used against him.

    Any sort of testimony he might have against other participants in his escapades would come in the form of leverage for a plea deal. If THAT happens, he likely would be required to testify against those he implicates. In that situation, any evidence of mental issues does become important, too.
