The curious circumstances surrounding the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein are beginning to look even more confounding as it is revealed the serial pedophile felt no remorse for his actions just months before his alleged suicide.
In a series of interviews with Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business Network, Epstein showed no remorse and instead downplayed his crimes, over a decade after it was determined he had sexually assaulted at least 40 underage girls in southern Florida.
He even compared himself to Robert Kraft at one point, who had a manual and oral act performed on him by massage workers who were well past the age if consent on two occasions at a Florida day spa.
‘Only he went somewhere, and they came to me,’ explained Epstein.
He also refused to be identified by the very thing he was in life, and will be remembered for in eternity.
‘I just want you to know I’m not a pedophile,’ he told Gasparino during one interview.

Epstein made light of his previous criminal activity, unaware at the time that he would soon be back behind bars.
‘Maybe the only thing worse than being called a pedophile is being called a hedge fund manager,’ joked Epstein.
Gasparino is very clear from the start that Epstein saw himself as above the law, and as he saw it learned nothing from his brief time behind bars.
‘I should point out that Epstein, based on our conversations, didn’t seem like he believed he committed much of a crime,’ he notes early in the piece.
‘He was at times dismissive, and at others, he displayed gallows humor at his predicament, which was growing more acute by the day.’
He continues: ‘It was around this time, in March, that just about every major bank had stopped doing business with him amid the frenzy of press activity. Friends abandoned him or minimized their relationship.’
Things deteriorated from there, with most of his professional dealings already dried up prior to his arrest according to Gasparino.
Epstein meanwhile painted himself as the victim.
‘It’s hard to believe that not so long ago people actually thought I was a good guy. And now people are ashamed to say they knew me,’ he noted at one point.
Gasparino was never one of those people however, though he does say that he would have liked more time with the pedophile
I wish I had more from him because we learn about evil by watching it unravel before our eyes.
