You did hear the CNN report referring to 'confiscated explosive materials'.

Re: Epstein Accuser Says Bill Clinton Partied on Pedophile Island

Jesus said that there were a variety of reasons that man could not marry.

These were that some were not born that way, (Eunuchs'/Gay?), some because men made them that way (choice/lifestyle/career?), and some for the sake of Kingdom of God, (Priests?).

Frankly, I am not entirely sure.

Re: Epstein Accuser Says Bill Clinton Partied on Pedophile Island

Two points stand out.

Firstly, why it is relevant that her boyfriend died in jail.
Secondly, that he is apparently unsure if it was murder or suicide. Given that he had already said that Epstein died in jail, why did he need to go further.
