Posted on 08/13/2019 7:25:33 PM PDT by cringeworthy
On July 25, 2019, the New York Post reported that Manhattan federal prosecutors were conducting an ongoing investigation' of "uncharged individuals connected to Jeffrey Epstein, according to court papers filed that day. Relevant to that investigation were "images of nude or partially-nude individuals which had been seized from Epstein's residences, which, if released to the public, would impede...the Governments ongoing investigation of uncharged individuals... The implication was strong that "uncharged individuals" were in the photographs. Why would the leaking of photographs "impede" the investigation of "uncharged individuals," unless the individuals were themselves in the photographs? This might certainly cause some uncharged individuals to flee to avoid arrest. That would certainly impede an investigation.

“On July 25, 2019, the New York Post reported that Manhattan federal prosecutors were conducting an ongoing investigation’ of “uncharged individuals connected to Jeffrey Epstein”
SURE... I believe that. LOL
Use it for the same things Epstein did.
“Yeah, Epstein is dead...but we need to keep all the evidence against him top secret until at least November of 2020... Preferably forever”.
That about it?
To quote humor columnist Dave Barry on an *entirely* unrelated matter,
"Whoa! Get a load of the torts on that plaintiff!"
According to Blacks law dictionary, evidence is any species of proof, or probative matter, legally presented at the trial of an issue, by the act of the parties and through the medium of witnesses, records, documents, exhibits, concrete objects, etc. for the purpose of inducing belief in the minds of the court or jury as to their contention. Electronic information (like paper) generally is admissible into evidence in a legal proceeding.
But the establishment of probable cause is hard to define. Although the Fourth Amendment states that “no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause”, it does not specify what “probable cause” actually means. The Supreme Court has attempted to clarify the meaning of the term on several occasions, while recognizing that probable cause is a concept that is imprecise, fluid and very dependent on context. And that becomes opinion rather than existence.
The Fourth Amendment requires that any arrest be based on probable cause, even when the arrest is made pursuant to an arrest warrant. Whether or not there is probable cause typically depends on the totality of the circumstances, meaning everything that the arresting officers know or reasonably believe at the time the arrest is made. So unless there is some action on film which identifies the pictured as accomplishing a crime, there isnt anything to arrest for. And nudity, by itself, is not a felony. Indecent exposure is a gross misdemeanor on the first offense if the person exposes himself or herself to a person under the age of fourteen years. The punishment for a misdemeanor indecent exposure conviction is probation up to a year or two in jail and a fine. Not sure which will be applied but these are VIP people.
If a guy’s dead, do they still need a search warrant to collect evidence from his property?
The property belongs to someone, so yes, unless the new owner decides to give explicit permission to go in and search for anything to be used at any time for any investigation. Though even then written consent is needed to prevent issues further down the line. The warrant is the best course of action, in any case.
Even with permission it could be later stated that there was no probable cause to enter, as not only was there no specified search parameters but no warrant means no approval by a judge, making anything obtained inadmissible. Some sort of record is necessary to keep rulings from being overturned and evidence withdrawn.

They will of course arrest everyone with evidence, and put them on ‘suicide watch’
Who has the list of these very important people and when will it bereleased, or leaked ? The public has a right to know. Who are the pedophiles nextdoor?
Photo evidence? The ashes piled in the incinerator you mean.
The only people who might get these pictures released would be Judicial Watch. Congress doesn’t care, and Law Enforcement needs to protect their masters.
True. You can run a search and find out if predators live near you. But that doesn't apply to the super powerful and super wealthy.
Go for it, Judicial Watch!
I agree with Tacrolimus1mg on this. Get a search warrant. You cannot anticipate everything, but at some point someone might have a legal argument on probable cause. Eliminate possible probable cause challenges by getting a search warrant.
I hope they gave Clinton operatives time to scour the place before they went in. It’s been about a month.
Fredo has as much as admitted it was an Epstein client. But what if people like Chucky Schumer are in the photos?
Re what if Schumer were in the photos. Well, first he’d had to have balls to qualify. On the other hand, he is the biggest schmuck in Congress so that would qualify him for “horndog” of the month.
I just hope Chucky, spawn of the devil, is in some of Epstein’s photos. They would be worth a fortune to someone who sold them to a newspaper.
Headlines: “Epstein photos prove that Schumer has balls despite rumors to the contrary”.
“Photos prove that Schumer is the biggest prick around”.
“Photos prove Schumer’s parents were gorillas”.
I bet a zillion those unnamed individuals will be tipped off.
