There are two options as far as I’m concerned: RFK Jr. either was aware that Epstein was a sleazebag and likely intelligence plant running a blackmail operation and was perhaps compromised himself or else he is the worst judge of character in all of human history and now he’s lying to cover his tracks.
In either case, he’s lost my support forever.
Honestly, the BEST you can say is that RFK, Jr. was a gull. The worst you can say is… far worse. But in terms of RFK, Jr. being dishonest about this, well, there really is no question, is there?
