Chinese Doctor Says COVID-19 Release was Intentional

Jesse Martin 
Apr 30, 2022

Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, stated that the virus was “no accident.” That it was lab-produced and released with intent.

From the Gateway Pundit

“So it’s definitely not from nature and it’s definitely not an accident come out in a lab. Also, it starts from Wuhan and the Wuhan Institute of Virology get involved but I need to tell people that this is not an accident. Because I work in that lab I know how safe it is and the lab actually can never cause big pandemic world-wide and this is intentionally bring out of the lab and released in the community. And there are a lot of motives behind that but the most important thing is Chinese Communist Government develop this and they want to use it to destroy the world order. And I think that because it’s out of control we never saw it out of control in Wuhan.”

The Chinese virologist came to several conclusions about the virus, chiefly that it could, despite claims, travel between humans, that it had no animal host, and that it was lab-created.

She fled China after her discovery that the virus was produced in a lab and that Beijing was covering it all up.

What would China have to gain from this virus? Disruption of the western world order.

The western world was brought to an absolute stall by COVID-19, as economies shut down and elections were disrupted. When the virus was first released, we had a booming economy and a fantastic president, and many other western nations were doing well. Within a year, the “leader” of the US is an incompetent fool and the economy was a wreck. The rest of the free world experienced similar levels of disruption.

China, did, however, overestimate their ability to control the virus. Or perhaps, they simply didn’t care how many of their own citizens it affected.

Schiff: ‘Compelling Evidence’ Trump, Others Engaged in ‘Criminal Activity to Obstruct Congress’

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Monday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that he believes the evidence obtained by the House select committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, shows former President Donald Trump and “others” engaged in criminal activity to obstruct Congress.

Maddow said, “Do you feel like what we have learned thus far might suggest criminal behavior by members of Congress? I’m thinking specifically about these revelations today in this reporting from CNN that would indicate, in the words of one Republican member of Congress, Marjorie Taylor Greene, that multiple members of Congress believed that Trump should declare martial law just ahead of the inauguration in order to stay in power.”

She asked, “Is their indication, to your mind, in terms of the evidence you have seen, that members of Congress should be facing criminal charges for their involvement?”

Schiff said, “I haven’t reached a conclusion on that point, but I do agree certainly with the judge in California, Judge Carter, that there is compelling evidence that the president of the United States and others engaged with very possible criminal activity to obstruct Congress, to defraud the United States, to engage in conspiracy. I think that there is significant evidence of corrupt intent. Some of the revelations you mentioned go to the fact that White House counsel was telling some of these players like Mark Meadows that this is illegal, this violates the law. ”

He added, “We continue to put the facts together and learn new information every day.”

Elites Suggest Price Controls, Dystopian Travel Restrictions To “Manage” Soaring Energy Costs

Before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russia supplied the world with one out of every ten barrels of crude consumed. But as the United States, Canada, and Australia have imposed embargoes on Russian crude and some buyers in Europe are halting purchases, the global oil market is facing one of the worst disruptions since the 1973 oil crisis when the members of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) led by Saudi Arabia declared an oil ban on Western countries for their support of Israel during the Yom Kippur War.

The energy price shock of the mid-1970s led to the reduction of maximum national speed limits from 70 mph to 55 mph. The 21% reduction in speed equated to gas consumption savings.

Now the International Energy Agency (IEA) has proposed similar measures to lessen the oil shock following the Russian invasion of Ukraine and embargoes on Russian crude.

IEA said Western economies could reduce daily oil demand by 2.7 million barrels within four months by restricting how people drive, indicating the move to reduce highway speed could almost offset the 3 million barrel-a-day loss of Russian production for April.

“These efforts would reduce the price pain being felt by consumers around the world, lessen the economic damage, shrink Russia’s hydrocarbon revenues, and help move oil demand to a more sustainable pathway,” IEA said. 

The IEA has unveiled a ten-point action plan it hopes Western countries will implement to curtail oil demand.

1 -Reduce speed limits on highways by at least 10 km/h

Impact*: Saves around 290 kb/d of oil use from cars, and an additional 140 kb/d from trucks

2 – Work from home up to three days a week where possible

Impact: One day a week saves around 170 kb/d; three days saves around 500 kb/d

3 – Car-free Sundays in cities

Impact: Every Sunday saves around 380 kb/d; one Sunday a month saves 95 kb/d

4 – Make the use of public transport cheaper and incentivise micromobility, walking and cycling

Impact: Saves around 330 kb/d

5 – Alternate private car access to roads in large cities

Impact: Saves around 210 kb/d

6 – Increase car sharing and adopt practices to reduce fuel use

Impact: Saves around 470 kb/d

7 – Promote efficient driving for freight trucks and delivery of goods

Impact: Saves around 320 kb/d

8 – Using high-speed and night trains instead of planes where possible

Impact: Saves around 40 kb/d

9 – Avoid business air travel where alternative options exist

Impact: Saves around 260 kb/d

10 – Reinforce the adoption of electric and more efficient vehicles

Impact: Saves around 100 kb/d

Today’s oil price shock could be a redux of the mid-1970s oil crisis as it may suggest price controls are next. Prime Minister of Italy Mario Draghi stated Friday that price controls could be coming to the natural gas markets, likely meaning petrol is next.

Mark Twain once wrote, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.” Baby boomers who remember the mid-1970s and the pain a commodity shock caused most likely understand today’s turmoil is far from over.

What is lurking dead ahead is stagflation; what may be lurking beyond that is far, far worse.

Hillary Clinton Finds A Way To Blame Trump For Russia And Ukraine Crisis

Carmine Sabia
February 27, 2022

If we examine the facts of the Ukraine situation we know that Russia annexed Crimea during the administration of former President Obama and are currently engaged in a war with Ukraine during the administration of President Joe Biden.

We also know that during the administration of former President Donald Trump the United States had a friendlier relationship with Russia and there was no war between Russia and Ukraine.

But when looking for someone to blame for the current war, former Secretary of State of 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton picked former President Trump in an op-ed for The Atlantic.

“Republican leaders are abandoning core tenets of American democracy even as the stakes in the global contest between democracy and autocracy are clearer and higher than at any time since the end of the Cold War,” she said in the piece that used the word “democracy” 47 times.

What is hilarious is that it was President Biden, in 2021, who said Ukraine had to clean up corruption in its government before it could join NATO.

“It depends on whether they meet the criteria. The fact is they still have to clean up corruption,” he said. “The fact is they have to meet other criteria to get into the Action Plan.”

“They have to convince, and it’s not easy,” he said. “I made a speech, years ago, to the Rada saying that — that Ukraine had an opportunity to do something that’s never occurred in the history of Ukraine: actually generate a democratically elected and not corrupt — led by oligarchies in any of the regions — nation.”

The irony of Hunter Biden’s dad saying that Ukraine has to stop corruption aside, fast forward one year and Ukraine is a hero in the eyes of the administration. And Clinton thinks the war is the fault of Republicans.

“Trump has always had a personal attachment to Putin,” she said. “which we don’t need to belabor here, and a long-standing admiration for dictators and disdain for democracy—going all the way back to his admiration for the brutal Chinese crackdown in Tiananmen Square decades ago.”

She said that Putin was a threat to “the promise of democracy — freedom, rule of law, human rights, self-determination” and then praised RINOS Rep. Liz Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger for “braving the ire of their party,” which she said was “determined to discredit or co-opt the idea of democracy.”

“Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois are braving the ire of their party to serve on the House committee investigating January 6,” she said, though she never said what the relationship between January 6, 2021 and the current war between Russia and Ukraine is.

“We need a strong democracy in the United States to win the global argument with autocracy,” she said. “A strong democracy is also a precondition to mobilizing the resources necessary to deter aggression and compete economically and militarily.”

She gave hero status to Cheney and Kinzinger for not “going along with the Trump-led attack on American democratic institutions and legitimacy at precisely the time when we need to set an example for the world.”

“Sometimes it seems as if Liz Cheney is the only prominent Republican able to connect the dots between these domestic challenges and our international standing,” she said.

But, again, this war is happening at the same time Democrats have control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives and as former President Trump is a private citizen.

Her op-ed comes at the same time as some are saying that she should be the Democrat nominee for president in 2024 and after she gave a speech at the New York Democrat Convention that some perceived to be her dipping her toes in the water.

WHO Signs Contract with Deutsche Telekom to Build Global Digital COVID-19 Jab Certificate

While the world focuses on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the WHO has quietly partnered with Deutsche Telekom to develop a global digital COVID-19 jab certificate.

The contract between the global health agency and telecommunications company aims to use QR code-based software to display proofs of vaccination anywhere in the world.

In addition to the experimental COVID-19 injections, the app will include other vaccinations the WHO deems necessary for the global population.

The public-private partnership intends to build the digital infrastructure to force citizens to “show their papers” anywhere on the planet.

Another “conspiracy theory” confirmed for those that warned about digital vaccine cards for the past two years.

Reuters reported:

The World Health Organization has signed a contract with Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) subsidiary T-Systems to build a software solution for global electronic verification of coronavirus certificates, the telecoms company said.

The QR code-based software solution will be used for other vaccinations as well, such as polio or yellow fever, T-Systems said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that the WHO would support its 194 member states in building national and regional verification technology.

The financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Health is a strategic growth area for T-Systems,” said T-Systems Chief Executive Officer Adel Al-Saleh.

T-Systems previously worked with SAP (SAPG.DE) to develop Germany’s Corona-Warn-App tracing and verification app and a Europe-wide digital COVID-19 vaccine verification system.

While the World Focuses on Ukraine, Globalists Like the World Economic Forum’s Klaus Schwab Charge Ahead

Joe Hoft
February 23rd, 2022

The world is reporting on Russia’s Putin who just ‘took over’ Ukraine after signing agreements with two Ukrainian republics who called for their independence from Ukraine.  But the real threat from globalists is being virtually ignored.  

The media and the world are focused on Russia’s ‘evil’ Vladimir Putin who just signed an agreement with two independent republics in Ukraine.  This came after Biden and Kamala Harris warned for weeks about Russia invading Ukraine.

But while the world focuses on Ukraine and Russia, there is a more formidable force that few are really speaking of – the New World Order.  Yesterday former US Rep. and current the Dean of the Robertson School of Government at Regent University spoke about this.  She summarized her thoughts on Ukraine by suggesting that maybe this is just a distraction, keeping our focus on Putin rather than the global elites who are stripping away our civil liberties.

The World Economic Forum is one entity that many associate with globalism and the New World Order.  After the recent protests in Canada and the harsh crackdown on those who protested, Canada is looked at in a new light.  Prime Minister Trudeau is considered the Castro of Canada for his actions.  While he claimed in Parliament that the people wanted to be free in the town of Ottawa, the truckers were protesting for their freedom from Trudeau’s harsh mandates related to COVID.  Trudeau’s comments on freedom were shocking after all he has done to the people in that country.

But maybe this is no surprise.  Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum bragged about Trudeau and others in the Canadian Cabinet who have been groomed for globalism.  In a video that is being taken down from some social platforms, Schwab shared on this topic.

Trudeau’s Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland is in Trudeau’s Cabinet.   She also supportive of Trudeau’s actions to remove civil liberties from the people of Canada.  As we reported, her grandfather was a high-level Nazi in World War II and she is a fan of George Soros.  She is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Board of Trustees.

We have shared numerous warnings from individuals like Italy’s Archbishop Vigano who has shared:

DEAR AMERICAN PEOPLE, DEAR FRIENDS, for two years now, a global coup has been carried out all over the world, planned for some time by an elite group of conspirators enslaved to the interests of international high finance. This coup was made possible by an emergency pandemic that is based on the premise of a virus that has a mortality rate almost analogous to that of any other seasonal flu virus, on the delegitimization and prohibition of effective treatments, and on the distribution of an experimental gene serum which is obviously ineffective, and which also clearly carries with it the danger of serious and even lethal side effects. We all know how much the mainstream media has contributed to supporting the insane pandemic narrative, the interests that are at stake, and the goals of these groups of power: reducing the world population, making those who survive chronically ill, and imposing forms of control that violate the fundamental rights and natural liberties of citizens. And yet, two years after this grotesque farce started, which has claimed more victims than a war and destroyed the social fabric, national economies, and the very foundations of the rule of law, nothing has changed in the policies of Nations and their response to the so-called pandemic.

Individuals like Michele Bachmann and Archbishop Vigano are right.  We must stand together for freedoms and life.  We are the majority. 

Panicked Left Using Old Tactics to Try to Derail Durham Probe

The Left is reviving old tactics from Bill Clinton-era Whitewater scandal in a panicked attempt to prevent the public from knowing the full scope of the Russia-collusion hoax, according to a report in Just the News.

During the 1990s investigation into the Clintons’ role in the Whitewater Development Corporation and its real-estate shenanigans, Hillary Clinton’s response — a trial balloon of her infamous invocation of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” involving Monica Lewinsky—was to attack government prosecutors as “politically motivated” and “allied with the right-wing opponents of my husband.”

Clinton and her allies in the media have recently trained similar fire on Special Counsel John Durham, Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert W. Ray told Just the News.

“I think one of the things that grew out of the [Whitewater investigation] is that everybody came to the conclusion that the best way to defend was to go on offense in the political realm to undermine the legitimacy of the prosecutor,” Ray said. “That’s the playbook.”

True to form, Hillary took to Twitter on Feb. 16 to describe as a “fake scandal” Durham’s evidence of the Clinton campaign’s involvement in the Russia hoax.

(Tony SifertHeadline USA) The Left is reviving old tactics from Bill Clinton-era Whitewater scandal in a panicked attempt to prevent the public from knowing the full scope of the Russia-collusion hoax, according to a report in Just the News.

During the 1990s investigation into the Clintons’ role in the Whitewater Development Corporation and its real-estate shenanigans, Hillary Clinton’s response — a trial balloon of her infamous invocation of the “vast right-wing conspiracy” involving Monica Lewinsky—was to attack government prosecutors as “politically motivated” and “allied with the right-wing opponents of my husband.”

Clinton and her allies in the media have recently trained similar fire on Special Counsel John Durham, Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert W. Ray told Just the News.

“I think one of the things that grew out of the [Whitewater investigation] is that everybody came to the conclusion that the best way to defend was to go on offense in the political realm to undermine the legitimacy of the prosecutor,” Ray said. “That’s the playbook.”

True to form, Hillary took to Twitter on Feb. 16 to describe as a “fake scandal” Durham’s evidence of the Clinton campaign’s involvement in the Russia hoax.

Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones. So it’s a day that ends in Y.

The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.

For those interested in reality, here’s a good debunking of their latest nonsense.https://t.co/iYY8Uxuogx

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 16, 2022

“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones,” Clinton wrote. “The more his misdeeds are exposed, the more they lie.”

The media is eager to comply, with Newsweek claiming in a pro-Hillary piece that “Durham’s filing isn’t the damning evidence that Trump and other conservatives have claimed.”

Vanity Fair has also stepped into the fray, arguing in a Feb. 15 article that “Trump and company got the whole thing hilariously, mortifyingly incorrect.”

And the New Republic called for an end to the investigation altogether, as reported by the Gateway Pundit.

“It’s all fiction, straight out of the Josef Goebbels School of Political Communication,” claimed writer New Republic writer Michael Tomasky, implying that Trump was, in fact, colluding with Russia, contrary to all the evidence that indicates otherwise.

“If you are doing X—setting fire to the Reichstag, say, or cooperating with the Kremlin to win a presidential election—you accuse your opponent of doing the thing that you’re doing,” Tomansky acknowledged.

Such double-deflections have been standard in the leftist playbook, popularized by former Hillary Clinton mentor Saul Alinsky.

For his part, Ray argued that “the current Durham probe has raised serious questions that need to be answered about whether the Clinton campaign was able to lure the FBI and intelligence community into impacting the electoral process by investigating Trump on a false premise.”

On Fox News, meanwhile, former assistant FBI director Chris Swecker suggested that there may be a long and arduous road still ahead in unraveling the criminal misconduct.

Before reaching the very top—a takedown of Hillary, herself—Durham may need to flip a number of mid-level perpetrators, he said, according to the Blue State Conservative.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘Fake Scandal’ Attack on Durham Probe Revives Strategy from Whitewater Era

John Solomon
February 22nd, 2022

A quarter-century ago as Whitewater prosecutors closed in on evidence that Bill and Hillary Clinton both gave factually inaccurate testimony, the then-first lady unleashed a blistering attack that stunned a capital city that in those days was far less rancorous.

Mrs. Clinton called the Whitewater probe “an effort to undo the results of two elections,” claiming it was run by a “politically motivated prosecutor who is allied with the right-wing opponents of my husband.”

Prosecutors have been “looking at every telephone call we’ve made, every check we’ve ever written, scratching for dirt, intimidating witnesses, doing everything possible to try to make some kind of accusation against my husband,” she declared in that 1998 interview with NBC’s “Today” show.

Twenty-four years later, Mrs. Clinton launched a similar attack on Special Counsel John Durham, the current federal prosecutor investigating the conduct of her 2016 campaign and its efforts to falsely portray Donald Trump as a Russian stooge.

Durham has indicted a lawyer for Clinton’s campaign and revealed in a recent court filing that computer execs allied with her campaign exploited their access to Internet DNS data in an effort to spy on Trump and find derogatory information linking him to Russia.

She responded by calling the revelations “fake news” and suggesting they came close to meeting the “actual malice” standard for libel of public officials.

Former Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert W. Ray, who eventually wrote the final report accusing Mrs. Clinton of lying to investigators, found a healthy dose of déjà vu in her fresh attack on the Durham probe.

“I think one of the things that grew out of the independent counsel statute and the politicization of prosecution of, or investigation of, high-level government officials is that everybody came to the conclusion that the best way to defend was to go on offense in the political realm,” Ray told Just the News in an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast.

Ray said the goal of such attacks is “to undermine the legitimacy of the prosecutor, and also to turn public sentiment against the prosecutor, to the point where, you know, the public just feels relief and exhaustion over any efforts to hold anybody accountable.”

“So that’s the playbook,” he said.

Ray succeeded original Whitewater Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, whose investigation of the Monica Lewinsky affair led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment on grounds he lied in a federal deposition about having sexual relations with the White House intern.

Ray’s completion of the investigation after impeachment closed the book on the core allegations about the Whitewater land deal in Arkansas, the Clintons’ relationship with a failed Arkansas savings and loan known as Madison Guaranty, Mrs. Clinton’s legal services for that S&L and other scandals wrapped into the probe, including the firing of the White House travel office staff in 1993.

While the Whitewater probe led to numerous convictions, including S&L owner and Whitewater business partner James McDougal, Ray ultimately decided there was insufficient evidence to indict either of the Clintons and sustain a conviction.

But his final report included a stinging rebuke of both Clintons, including findings that:

  • Bill Clinton “knowingly gave evasive and misleading answers concerning” his relationship with Lewinsky.
  • Hillary Clinton gave inaccurate testimony when she denied working on a legal document for the S&L known as an option agreement. ”Documentary evidence established that Mrs. Clinton did participate in the drafting of the option agreement,” the report said.
  • Hillary Clinton gave ”factually inaccurate” testimony when she said her role in bringing Madison Guaranty to her Rose Law Firm was essentially to see that McDougal pay an outstanding bill.
  • Hillary Clinton gave false testimony when she denied having input on the firing of the White House career travel office staff in 1993 after Bill Clinton became president. “The independent counsel concludes that Mrs. Clinton’s sworn testimony that she had no input into Watkins’ decision or role in the travel office firings is factually inaccurate,” the report said.
  • The appearance of missing Rose Law Firm billing records inside the Clinton White House residence after they had been subpoenaed by a grand jury raised serious concerns about obstruction of justice.

“There were some serious question about whether or not Hillary Clinton had told the truth to our investigators,” Ray recalled. “And while ultimately I decided that it wasn’t appropriate to bring a false statements or obstruction of justice prosecution, I did in the final report make findings.”

Ray said the biggest lesson for Durham’s probe from the earlier Whitewater probe is that the Clintons’ political attacks in the court of public opinion can, and will, have an impact on the prosecutor’s timeline to seek justice in the court of law.

“Even before you get to a five-year statute of limitations, I think it’s just generally true … that an investigation takes on a life, it has a course of years to accomplish its desired objectives. And then after that, it’s really a case of diminishing returns,” he said.

“Memories fade, the country moves on, the political process moves on,” he continued. “So you know, you’re not talking about a stretch of five years to be able to accomplish results. It’s kind of in the 18-months-to-three-year category. You get in there, you do what you can do, and then you have to get out. And that’s all the time that you have.”

Ray said the current Durham probe has raised serious questions that need to be answered about whether the Clinton campaign was able to lure the FBI and intelligence community into impacting the electoral process by investigating Trump on a false premise.

“That’s why it’s so important to get to the bottom of this,” he said. “I don’t know whether or not John Durham will be able to pin the tail on the donkey.”

The decisions inside the Clinton campaign to drum up the Russia collusion allegations “weren’t made, you know, just in a vacuum,” Ray said. “There were people who, obviously, were pulling those levers, and it’s not clear whether they’ll ever be able to hold those responsible, or accountable. But it doesn’t diminish the fact that this is important.

“And it needs to be followed through, whether by this particular prosecutor or, ultimately, by Congress, should Republicans take control of the House and/or the Senate, in the midterm elections.” 

Ghislaine Maxwell’s Family Fears For Her Safety After Death of Epstein Associate

Carmine Sabia
February 20th, 2022

OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.


Ghislaine Maxwell’s family is now concerned for her safety after a man who was known as Jeffrey Epstein’s pimp, was found dead in his prison cell of what has been called a suicide.

It is alleged that Maxwell, who was convicted of sex trafficking last year, introduced the deceased fashion designer, Jean-Luc Brunel , to Epstein, The New York Post reported.

“It’s really shocking,” Ian Maxwell, a sibling of Ghislaine, said to The Post. “Another death by hanging in a high-security prison. My reaction is one of total shock and bewilderment.”

He said that her family “fears for her safety” after the deaths of Epstein and Brunel.

“Despite the psychiatrist advising to the contrary, she was deemed a suicide risk and they are continuing to wake her up every 15 minutes in the night. It’s a complete violation of prisoner rights and human rights,” he said of her treatment in prison.

Maxwell insisted his younger sister is not suicidal, and said that it was “ironic” that Epstein and Brunel who died of apparent suicides were not on suicide watches in their respective prisons. Epstein had been taken off suicide watch shortly before his death in August, 2019.

Last month, Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, officially requested a retrial after a juror in the case told media that he used his own experience of being sexually abused in order to influence his peers on the jury to reach a guilty verdict.

French modelling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, who is alleged to have gotten more than a thousand women and girls for Epstein to sleep with, was found during a check around 1 AM in his cell, hanging, The Daily Mail reported.

Unfounded conspiracy theories began quickly.

“Nothing to see here. Merely coincidental. No, I know what you’re thinking. Another suicide, right? We’ll, take our word for it. And, no, we’re not going to show you any pathology reports or crime scene photos. Go away. Wait for the invasion. Just go,” culture commentator Lionel said.

“Jean-Luc Brunel has “committed suicide” He was accused of procuring young girls for Jeffrey Epstein to abuse Friend of Ghislaine Maxwell & named by Virginia Guiffre as one of her abusers He was awaiting trial in France for sexually abuse I’m no conspiracy theorist but..,” former prosecutor Nazir Afzal said.

It comes days after Prince Andrew, 62, agreed to settle Virginia Roberts’s lawsuit accusing him of sex abuse after they met through Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Roberts accused Brunel, 76, of procuring more than a thousand women and girls for Epstein to sleep with and he was awaiting trial in France for raping minors.

His death in an alleged hanging will fuel conspiracy theories around the Epstein affair after he also died in prison while awaiting trial in what authorities say was a hanging.

However video cameras were not running at the time he died in the cell he shared with another inmate.  

Prosecutors in Paris confirmed Brunel was found hanging in his cell in La Santé, in the south of the capital city, in the early hours of Saturday morning. It is not known whether Brunel was sharing a cell or whether there was any CCTV footage inside. 

“A night patrol found his lifeless body at about 1am,” a source set to The Daily Mail. “A judicial enquiry has been launched, and early evidence points to suicide.”

He was indicted in December 2020 after being interrogated by a magistrate and a specialist unit of anti-pedophile police for two days.

He was arrested at Charles de Gaulle airport attempting to get on a plane to Dakar, Senegal when claiming he was heading on vacation.

“Brunel was suspected of having been part of a global underage sex ring organized by the late American multi-billionaire Epstein, who committed suicide in 2019, while awaiting trial for numerous sex crimes,” The Daily Mail said.

Bernie Madoff’s Sister and Her Husband Dead in Suspected Murder-Suicide: Cops

Jackie Salo
February 20th, 2022

The sister of late fraudster Bernie Madoff and her husband were found dead in Florida in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities said Sunday.

Sondra Wiener, 87, and her spouse Marvin, 90 — whose lives were among those destroyed by Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme — were discovered dead from gunshot wounds in their home Thursday afternoon in Boynton Beach, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies received a call at 12:55 p.m. about the couple being unresponsive in their residence, authorities said.

“Upon arrival, deputies located an elderly female and male deceased from a gunshot wound,” the sheriff’s office said.

Detectives from the Violent Crimes Division are investigating their deaths as a murder-suicide, authorities confirmed. It wasn’t immediately clear who killed who, but the couple’s kin requested that authorities shield the name of Marvin, citing Marcy’s Law, which allows relatives to protect the names of crime victims.

Medical examiners remove the body of Mark Madoff, the son of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff, after he hanged himself in his New York apartment on the second anniversary of his father's arrest for perpetrating Wall Street's biggest ever fraud, in New York, December 11, 2010.

Wiener and her husband had not been spared by her brother’s financial crimes, with the couple reportedly losing $3 million when his Ponzi scheme came crashing down in 2008.

“She lost millions in this whole thing,” a source told The Post in 2009.

Before Madoff’s crimes came to light, the siblings appeared close. The Wieners had lived near his Palm Beach estate in the BallenIsles Country Club, a gated enclave home to celebrities such as Serena and Venus Williams. 

60 Minutes interviewed Bernie Madoff's son, Andrew (shown), for a story that will provide the first inside account from the immediate family of the man who stole billions of dollars. Image is a screen grab.
Andrew Madoff died of mantle-cell lymphoma in 2014.

But in 2009, they downsized after selling the house for $575,000, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

Wiener had been among one of five relatives who received packages filled with pricey heirlooms allegedly mailed by Madoff and his wife, Ruth, on Christmas Eve 2008 — just days after the financier’s sons turned him over to authorities for defrauding his clients.

Though the sister did not work for Madoff Securities, her son Charles, 50, toiled there for decades, once serving as the director of administration.

Bernie Madoff pleaded guilty in 2009 to running a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.

Another of Wiener’s sons, David, confirmed in 2009 that his parents had suffered financially as a result of the Ponzi scheme. 

“Yes, my family’s a victim. More so than anybody else. It’s very painful,” he told The Post.

No further details were immediately released about the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

The deadly incident at the couple’s home was first reported by Boca News Now.

In an e-mail sent to residents in the couple’s Valencia Lakes neighborhood, a community leader confirmed the deaths.

“Let me start off by stating that as many of you have heard, we had a tragic situation on Barca Boulevard regarding the passing of Sondra and Marvin Weiner,” said the e-mail obtained by Boca News Now.“Our thoughts and condolences go out to their family. There is currently an investigation pending. All I can say is at this time there is no security or safety threat to anyone in the community.”

Bernie Madoff, who pleaded guilty in 2009 to running the Ponzi scheme, died in federal lockup in Butner, NC, in April as he was serving a 150-year sentence. He was 82.

His devastating financial crimes have been linked to a number of tragedies.

His elder son, Mark, hanged himself on the second anniversary of the fraudster’s 2008 arrest and left behind a bitter note.

“Bernie, now you know how you have destroyed the lives of your sons by your life of deceit. F–-k you,” wrote Mark, 48.

The convict’s younger son Andrew also blamed their dad for his recurrence of the rare cancer mantle-cell lymphoma, which killed him in 2014. Andrew also was 48 when he died.

“One way to think of this is the scandal and everything that happened killed my brother very quickly. And it’s killing me slowly,” Andrew told People magazine before his death.

Madoff’s ripoff was also tied to the suicides of three investors, including a hedge-fund executive, Charles Murphy, 56, who jumped his death from the luxury Sofitel New York Hotel in 2017 after his firm invested $7 billion with the financier.
