UNSEALED: Jeffrey Epstein's CLIENT LIST: Full List of People Named

Now, let me get this straight, Epstein killed himself after being on suicide watch and somehow the cameras were not functioning at the time and apparently no one was watching him? And then all of the sex tapes he produced / possessed are nowhere to be found? Maxwell has been tried and convicted for her part in procuring young women to service their clientele but to date there has been no prosecution or even charges against any of the rich, politically connected clients that these same girls were servicing? Does anyone else smell the stench coming out of our Justice department? READ MORENude Photos of Girls Seized From Jeffrey Epstein Mansion

Legal documents filled with the names of friends, victims, business partners and "alleged perpetrators" associated with Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking crimes are finally set to be unsealed.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleged in a 2016 deposition that she was a teenager when she was forced to have sex with George Mitchell, a former Senate Majority leader who represented Maine from 1980-95, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.

The documents refer to 'alleged perpetrators' or individuals accused of 'serious wrongdoing', as well as law enforcement officers and prosecutors. 

The material was first filed in a defamation case brought by Roberts in 2015 against Ghislaine Maxwell, who is now serving 20 years in prison for sex trafficking and recruiting minors for Epstein.

Why Hasn’t Anyone From Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Little Black Book’ Been Arrested Yet?

Legal action against Epstein’s alleged associates has been confined to civil lawsuits by victims and attorneys general, despite the evidence available for criminal prosecutions, such as Epstein’s little black book and the testimonies in the Maxwell trial.

The scandal waiting to explode is why law enforcement has ignored this ever-growing sex trafficking ring. We need an explanation for why people are not being charged and prosecuted. Is this an instance of classic influence peddling corruption in law enforcement? Why no action? The silence is now deafening.

I don't know why the entire country is not protesting over this obvious scandal of protecting the rich and powerful.

Investigators and prosecutors should investigate all sex crimes, following the evidence they uncover, including following up on any victim disclosure of sexual assault or exploitation.

Prominent Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre singled out a list of eight alleged associates, known as the “Epstein Eight,” in her civil lawsuit against Maxwell. On Nov. 18, New York judge Loretta Preska promised to unseal the identities of the eight individuals, with the lone exception of “Doe 183,” Insider reported.

Radaronline: RadarOnline.com has obtained a 15-page affidavit from former “sex slave” Virginia Roberts, in which she instructs a top legal team to seek criminal charges against Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz, and other high-powered pals of multi-millionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein — including, potentially, Bill Clinton!

In her affidavit, Roberts clearly refers to Dershowitz, Prince Andrew, and Clinton, and reveals that she has instructed her lawyers — who include a former federal judge, Paul Cassell, and victims’ rights expert Bradley Edwards — to bring the men to justice.

“I have directed my attorneys … to pursue all reasonable and legitimate means to have criminal charges brought against these powerful people for the crimes they have committed against me and other girls,” she stated in the affidavit obtained by Radar. "These powerful people seem to think that they don’t have to follow the same rules as everyone else. That is wrong.”

Roberts declared, "I will cooperate fully in the investigation and prosecution of Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, or any of their friends who participated in the sexual abuse of minors."

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what crown one wears, what side of the political aisle one falls on, what designer one walked the runway for, or how much money one has: if the Epstein files reveal that you, either actively or passively, engaged in abusing underage girls, you need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

There cannot — and should not — be any debate about this.

Who were Jeffrey Epstein's clients? Full List of People Named: 

Alan Dershowitz 

When Jeffrey Epstein found out in 2005 that he was being investigated by police for the sexual abuse of underage girls, he called Alan Dershowitz.

Attorney Alan Dershowitz, credited with helping Epstein get the notorious plea deal in Florida in 2008, flew on his former client’s plane several times between 1998 and 2005. In 2019.

Dershowitz freely admits that he visited Epstein’s Little Saint James Island, the criminal sanctuary of Jeffrey Epstein.

HillTV noted that December 2000 travel records found on Epstein's plane mentioned a "massage" that was scheduled for "AD."

In shades of “I did not inhale,” Alan Dershowitz admitted he got a massage at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion but insists he kept his underwear on and never saw an underage girl there.

A local news report from WPLG about Dershowitz at the Epstein mansion shows Dershowitz stating emphatically, “I never saw an underage woman” at Epstein’s mansion. But it also shows a transcript of Epstein’s former butler’s sworn testimony stating Dershowitz had been there when “young ladies” were around.

The deposition documents suggest Dershowitz procured Epstein’s controversial deal in order to provide immunity for himself against rape allegations.

LawAndCrime: One such powerful individual that Epstein forced then-minor Jane Doe #3 to have sexual relations with was [REDACTED], a close friend of Epstein’s [REDACTED]. Epstein required Jane Doe #3 to have sexual relations with [REDACTED] on numerous occasions while she was a minor, not only in Florida but also on private planes, in New York, New Mexico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In addition to being a participant in the abuse of Jane Doe #3 and other minors, [REDACTED] was an eye-witness to the sexual abuse of many other minors by Epstein and several of Epstein’s co-conspirators. [REDACTED] would later play a significant role in negotiating the [Non-Prosecution Agreement] on Epstein’s behalf. Indeed, [REDACTED] helped negotiate an agreement that provided immunity from federal prosecution in the Southern District of Florida not only to Epstein, but also to “any potential co-conspirators of Epstein.” Thus, [REDACTED] helped negotiate an agreement with a provision that provided protection for himself against criminal prosecution in Florida for sexually abusing Jane Doe #3. Because this broad immunity would have been controversial if disclosed, [REDACTED] (along with other members of Epstein’s defense team) and the Government tried to keep the immunity provision secret from all of Epstein’s victims and the general public, even though such secrecy violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act.

The redactions are believed to refer to Dershowitz because the language is almost identical to a Florida court document previously leaked to–and reported by–Politico’s Josh Gerstein in 2014. The 2014 document was later stricken but not before Gerstein identified Dershowitz as the person accused.

A Harvard Law professor, Dershowitz had also joined former President Donald Trump’s legal team during his first impeachment fight.

More recently, he told CNBC he was advising lawyers for MyPillow CEO and election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell in a defamation suit.

Alan Dershowitz is listed in Epstein's black book on page 71.

Epstein recorded 10 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

In November 2012, the deposition testimony reveals, Epstein wrote Dershowitz, “I love that I get a Christmas card and present from [former assistant U.S. attorney] Matt Menschel [sic], the guy that put me in jail.”

Dershowitz replied, “Appropriate. Christmas celebrates the birth of another innocent Jewish guy who was crucified.”

In May 2013, Epstein wrote to Dershowitz, “Where are you for summer?” Dershowitz replied that he’d be on Martha’s Vineyard before adding, “Where are you. I called you a couple of times when I was in NYC. Miss you.”

JewishBusinessNews: It seems Alan Dershowitz cannot escape the whole Jeffrey Epstein scandal. He has once again been accused of taking part in one of Epstein’s sexual debauchery parties.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the Jeffrey Epstein story comes back up for air. It’s like the Energizer Bunny: the story keeps going, and going, and going… In the latest revelations, according to The Daily Beast, a victim of the late pedophile, rapist and sex trafficker Epstein has come out and accused former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz of being involved in a threesome that the woman was forced into by Epstein at the late rapist’s New York mansion.

Sarah Ransome’s newly released deposition has rekindled allegations that top attorney Alan Dershowitz was involved in the abuse of underage girls.

CBSNews: She said she met Epstein when she was 22, introduced by a young woman she encountered at a New York nightclub who (she later discovered) was paid to recruit her.

Ransome flew to Epstein's private island, Little St. James, thinking she was going on a vacation, she writes: "It sounded so amazing – and then boof, you're on this island, and that's it. Lock and key. There is no escape. There is no one to hear your screams and cries."

"It was made very clear to me, that first trip, that if I ever went to the authorities, if I told my parents, if I told my friends, if I ever left, Jeffrey said to me, 'I will kill you. I will hunt your mother and father down, and I will kill them.'"

And she claims that she had been forced into a threesome with Dershowitz and an unidentified woman.

Ransome describes Maxwell as an "aristocratic pimp" who facilitated Epstein's assaults.

For his part, Dershowitz has adamantly denied Ransome's allegations.

"She has no idea what my genitals look like," Dershowitz told The Daily Beast from a restaurant in Israel, where he was sitting down to dinner. "She made it all up."

Virginia Giuffre has also previously claimed that she had sex with noted attorney Alan Dershowitz.

“I had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz at least six times,’’ Giuffre wrote in a 2015 court affidavit, per the Miami Herald. “The first time was when I was about 16, early on in my servitude to Epstein and it continued until I was 19.”

Giuffre, wrote in court documents that she was “required to be sexually exploited by Defendant’s adult male peers.” That included Dershowitz. Giuffre “asserted that she’d had sex with Dershowitz at least six times, in Epstein’s various residences, on his island, in a car, and on his plane.” 

Dershowitz denied Giuffre’s claims, calling her a “prostitute” and a “bad mother” to her children.

In 1997, Dershowitz argued against statutory rape laws, saying the age of consent should be 15.

The deposition was released as part of Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre's lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell.

From the deposition:

Q. Tell me what happened during that encounter.

A. I walked in the room — walked in the house. Jeffrey and [REDACTED] and Alan were there.

Q. what happened after you walked in the house?

A. I — it was really strange, because [REDACTED] didn't like me. And so when I arrived, we had — I think — I can't remember if I had, like, water or whatever. [REDACTED] took me upstairs. I remember there was a room. I didn't quite understand what was going on at the time. I knew obviously something was going on, because I never met [REDACTED] socially. So [REDACTED] started undressing me in the room. She started undressing me by the bed. We got on the bed. I kind of knew what was going on from that. The girls were often forced to have sex with each other for Jeffrey's pleasure, so it was just another occasion, I guess. Jeffrey then walked in the room. He started masturbating under his clothes. He put his hand in his trousers. A few minutes later Alan walked in the room. He started undressing, he got on the bed with [REDACTED] and myself, and we basically had a three-way sexual interaction.

Q. Was Alan fully unclothed?

A. During — when? At what specific — he walked in with clothes.

Q. And he got fully undressed?

A. Yes.

Q. So you saw his entire naked body?

A. Yes.

Q. Did you notice anything specific about his body?

A. Not that I recall. I mean — yeah, not that I — I can't really remember. It was quite a — it was a — it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Q. what did you do with Alan?

A. I gave him oral sex, masturbated him.

Q. Anything else?

A. He did the same with [REDACTED] He performed the same on me.

Q. Did he eiaculate?

A. He did, yeah.

Q. In your mouth?

A. No.

Q. Did you have intercourse with him?

A. No, not penetration, no.

Q. Did you see him ejaculate more than once?

A. No, I didn't see him ejaculate more than once.

Q. You didn't notice any scars?

MS. MCCAWLEY: Objection.

A. I don't recall specific markings on every man I've been with body. So it's not something — I wasn't ravishing Alan's body. I was trying to close my eyes and just get it done so I could go home and watch TV, really. So I wasn't really aware. I didn't really like kind of go, woo, his body. I don't — I don't recall his body at all. Like, I don't make a mental note of every man's body I've slept with.

Q. Other than Jeffrey, is that the first time you had sex with another man in his home or on his property?

A. Sorry, can you just repeat the question.

MR. GUIRGUIS: Or rephrase it.

THE WITNESS: I'll just read it.

MR. GUIRGUIS: If You understand it.

A. Yeah, he was the only person, Alan Dershowitz.

Q. Did you have sex with him more than once?

A. No.

Q. At the occasion you just described, did he have an erection?

A. It was — it was — it wasn't particularly hard. It was pretty disappointing.

Q. And where did he ejaculate?

A. I had given him oral sex and, well, he ejaculated — he ejaculated. I mean, there's only so many places a man can ejaculate. He didn't ejaculate on me. He didn't ejaculate in my mouth. I gave him oral and I masturbated him and finished him off. He ejaculated over himself, me. Just — there wasn't a lot of ejaculation. I don't remember a lot of sperm. I didn't see massive amounts of semen. But I just remember him ejaculating, but it wasn't in my mouth.

Ransome was asked whether or not she saw blood coming out of Dershowitz’s penis – she said no.

In response Dershowitz said: ‘I want the FBI to investigate me, everybody who’s accused me, and the lawyers. And I’m hoping that still will happen. Maybe the revelation of these documents will cause the FBI to start a perjury investigation and [a] prosecution involving both accusers and lawyers, and a lot of people who’ve gotten rich off these files’.

There have also been allegations that Dershowitz himself has attempted to fight and stall the release of the Epstein files.

Dershowitz publicly claimed he tried to unseal the 2008 records while actually trying to keep them sealed.

Among the documents made public is a photo of Ransome taken on Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St James.

The documents were part of dozens that were unsealed on a rolling basis that come from a defamation lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre, Prince Andrew’s accuser, against Maxwell.

Dershowitz denied the accusations and even went so far as to try to get her lawyers disbarred (after they sued Dershowitz for defamation, both parties settled). 

In an exclusive statement to The Daily Beast, Giuffre challenges Dershowitz’s suggestions that he’s been “exonerated” of her sexual abuse allegations.

“I was shocked to read that Alan Dershowitz is claiming that our mutual dismissal of our lawsuits against each other somehow ‘exonerated’ him,” Giuffre said. “The litigation was very stressful and damaging to my family, and to my health. We have endured years in which Mr. Dershowitz asserted my charges against him were a lie, made up out of whole cloth, perjury, and part of a purported extortion plot. He has now admitted there was no perjury, no extortion plot, and that rather than making up what I said, I honestly believed the charges I made against him.

“Whether or not Mr. Dershowitz’s admissions undermine his previous denials of the charges made against him is for others to say. The settlement agreement limits what I can say and I will abide by it unless and until I am released from it. However, those admissions are not consistent with ‘exoneration.’

Harvey Weinstein

TheDailyBeast: In July 2006, Epstein and Maxwell were snapped grinning with Weinstein at Princess Beatrice’s 18th birthday party at Windsor Castle. The Victorian-themed bash came just days before Epstein was indicted for soliciting minor girls for prostitution in Palm Beach, Florida.

Weinstein was in a tuxedo, Maxwell in a plumed mask, and Epstein in a formal white U.S. Navy SEAL uniform, with service ribbons and medals.

Jeffrey Epstein used his connections to Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to impress young women, and even helped one victim land a role in a horror movie produced by a Weinstein-owned company.

Chauntae Davies was recruited into Epstein’s trafficking ring in 2001, when she was a 21-year-old massage-therapy student in California. She says the perverted financier groomed and sexually abused her for years before she escaped in 2005.

Davies’ time in Epstein’s world included a 2002 humanitarian trip to Africa with former President Bill Clinton on the money-manager’s private jet. Actors Chris Tucker and Kevin Spacey were along for the ride.

But Epstein also introduced Davies to Weinstein, who allegedly got her an audition for Feast, a 2005 film about a remote Texas tavern fending off monsters. Davies played a character identified only as “Drunk Girl,” according to IMDb.

Epstein once counted the producer (and now convicted sex offender) as a friend, allegedly inviting him to his Paris apartment, posing with him at the 18th birthday party of Prince Andrew’s daughter Beatrice, and apparently invoking the producer’s name to show off around his victims hoping for a big break.

Weinstein and Epstein also shared certain high-profile connections, like power publicist Peggy Siegal and former President Clinton. And in 2003, the men were part of an investor group, which included media mogul Mort Zuckerman and Cablevision CEO James Dolan, bent on buying New York magazine.

Epstein once accused Weinstein of attempting to sexually assault one of his “favorite girls,” apparently leading to the end of the creepy duo’s friendship. Edwards, who has represented victims of Epstein for 12 years, says this alleged encounter occurred in the financier’s home in France.

In Relentless Pursuit (to be published March 31 by Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster), Edwards writes, “I heard various versions of this story from others, including years later from Epstein himself, who referred to Harvey as a pig.

At another point in his book, Edwards notes that Epstein allegedly introduced at least one young victim to Weinstein, as well as Donald Trump, to impress her and remind her “of all that he could continue to do for her in the future.”

Epstein listed three Miramax executives in his Little Black Book: Poster, former spokesman Andrew Stengel, and Harvey’s brother, Bob.

Meryl Poster is listed in Epstein's black book on page 44.

Epstein recorded 3 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

Bob Weinstein is listed in Epstein's black book on page 57.

Epstein recorded 1 phone number and no addresses under this name.

Andrew Stengel is listed in Epstein's black book on page 51.

Epstein recorded 3 phone numbers and 1 address under this name.

If you or anyone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, help is available. Visit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network website or contact RAINN's National Helpline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).  

George Mitchell 

Former Senator George Mitchell (D-Maine), who was the Senate majority leader from 1989 to 1995, appeared multiple times on the flight logs over nearly four years from 1994 to 1998. On at least three of these flights, Mitchell was joined by his wife Heather.

NewsCenterMaine: Virginia Giuffre claims in depositions from 2016 that she was trafficked by Epstein and his associate Ghislaine Maxwell, directed to have sex with several people, among them including New Mexico's former governor, Prince Andrew and Sen. Mitchell, 85, who represented Maine in the Senate from 1980-1995.

She's then asked by Maxwell's attorney Laura Menninger to "name the other 23 politically connected and financially powerful people Maxwell told [her] to go have sex with," to which she replies by correcting Maxwell with "they," presumably referring to both Maxwell and Epstein, and stating the following:

"They instructed me to go to George Mitchell, Jean Luc Brunel, Bill Richardson, another prince that I don't know his name. A guy that owns a hotel, a really large hotel chain, I can't remember which hotel it was. Marvin Minsky."

George Mitchell is listed in Epstein's black book on page 76.

Epstein recorded 12 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

The defense soon after again asks Giuffre about prominent men she allegedly came into contact with, asking if she had sex with anyone other than the aforementioned Andrew, Brunel, Richardson, unnamed prince, Minsky, as well as Glenn Dubin and Stephen Kaufmann — Mitchell's name is notably left out.

"I am definitely sure there is," Giuffre testfies. "But can I remember everybody's name? No." She then claims she took notes but burned them in a bonfire.

Here's Mitchell's statement, in full:

"The allegation contained in the released documents is false.

"I have never met, spoken with or had any contact with Ms. Giuffre.

"In my contacts with Mr. Epstein I never observed or suspected any inappropriate conduct with underage girls. I only learned of his actions when they were reported in the media related to his prosecution in Florida. We have had no further contact."

Prince Andrew 

LawAndCrime: Prince Andrew’s name appears in the flight logs at least twice, both times in February 1999. However, it appears that Epstein encountered Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson at least once: an entry for April 16, 1998, says that Epstein was the only passenger on the plane, and is accompanied with the note: “Met Princess Sarah Ferguson + kids on the ground.”

Ferguson and Prince Andrew split in 1992.

According to Giuffre, Maxwell introduced her to the prince — whose full name is Andrew Albert Christian Edward — and told her to “do for him what you do for Epstein.” The years-long accusations resulted in Prince Andrew finally being served with a lawsuit in late August. In the lawsuit, Giuffre claims the prince sexually abused her at two of Epstein’s properties (a New York mansion and a private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands) and also at Maxwell’s London home.

“The third time I had sex with Andy was in an orgy on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands,” she wrote in evidence to a Florida court in 2015. “I was around 18 at the time. Epstein, Andy, approximately eight other young girls, and I had sex together. The other girls all seemed and appeared to be under the age of 18 and didn’t really speak English.”

Medical records that appear to support Ms Roberts Giuffre’s claim that she was abused by Epstein or others on separate occasions were obtained by Dispatches.

The documents from New York Presbyterian Hospital show that she was admitted on 9 July 2001 after three weeks of vaginal bleeding.

We also have found evidence on Prince Andrew through one of [Epstein's] employees. We all know about Prince Andrew's disastrous BBC interview. We were with his accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, two days later. She was devastated by what she felt was his mistruth and not owning up to anything at all. Then we spoke with an employee who worked for Epstein, who positively ID'd Prince Andrew as the one that he saw groping Virginia Roberts [while she was topless on Epstein's private island in the Virgin Islands]. The FBI came and interviewed him shortly after [Epstein's] death and showed him dozens and dozens of pictures, and he said, "That's absolutely [her], I'm 100 percent sure that's the girl." So I think that's a new revelation that isn't going to go over well for him.

Andrew and Epstein went on holiday together and were pictured on a yacht in Phuket, Thailand, surrounded by topless young women. The Times of London reported that the prince’s holiday was paid for by Epstein.

According to a July 22 article from NY Magazine's Intelligencer, a number of royals and royal connections were among Epstein's contacts. That includes Prince Andrew's then-wife, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York; and Charles Althorp, Princess Diana's brother. According to Intelligencer, all three were named in Epstein's black book; Ferguson and Prince Andrew were also named in his private jet log.

Charlie Althorp is listed in Epstein's black book on page 1.

Epstein recorded 2 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

President Donald Trump claimed that he didn’t know Prince Andrew, Duke of York, even though photos show they’ve known each other since at least 2000.

Photos of the two men rubbing shoulders at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort on February 12, 2000 (one of which is pictured above) suggest otherwise, as do multiple photos of them together as recently as this June during Trump’s state visit to the U.K.

Donald Trump is listed in Epstein's black book on page 80.

Epstein recorded 10 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

The first spate of mainstream news stories picked only low-hanging fruit. The usual suspects.

That sex slaves were being recruited at Mar-a-Lago didn’t seem to register.

CourthouseNews: Giuffre’s attorneys detail similar allegations by Johanna Sjoberg, who had been 21 years old when she told the Daily Mail that Prince Andrew had groped her at a party.

“Just to briefly highlight a few, Johanna Sjoberg, testified that defendant recruited her under the guise of a legitimate assistant position, but asked her to perform sexual massages for Epstein, and punished her when she didn’t cause Epstein to orgasm,” Giuffre’s attorney Sigrid McCawley wrote in a 66-page brief.

“I just remember someone suggesting a photo, and they told us to go get on the couch,” the brief quotes Sjoberg having testified. “And so, Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put the puppet, the puppet on her lap. And so, then I sat on Andrew’s lap, and I believe on my own volition, and they took the puppet’s hands and put it on Virginia’s breast, and so Andrew put his on mine.”

Leslie Wexner 

JTA: A Jewish billionaire who lives in the Columbus, Ohio, area. Wexner made his fortune by founding The Limited, a women’s clothing brand, in 1963.

Wexner has since expanded his apparel empire to include other brands, like Bath & Body Works, Pink and, most notably, Victoria’s Secret, a once-obscure lingerie store that he turned into an empire. It’s all now under the umbrella of his company, L Brands. He is the longest-running CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Jacqueline Onassis and Leslie Wexner, 1991.

He also ventured into real estate, developing the posh community of New Albany, Ohio, where Wexner lives in a 60,000-square-foot mansion. According to Forbes, he’s worth $4.6 billion.

The Wexner Foundation is among the most prominent private Jewish charities in the world. In 2017, according to tax documents, it gave $3.6 million in charity, much (but not all) of it to Jewish educational causes, as well as more money for educational programs.

In a statement last week distributed by his foundation, Wexner wrote that Epstein “had wide latitude to act on my behalf with respect to my personal finances while I focused on building my company and undertaking philanthropic efforts.” In 2003, Wexner told Vanity Fair that Epstein had “excellent judgment and unusually high standards.”

Epstein also was involved with Wexner’s charitable efforts. In 1990, the two helped fund the construction of a new building for the Harvard Hillel. Two years later, after Wexner’s mother fell ill, Epstein replaced her on the Wexner Foundation board.

They were invested together in Wexner’s Ohio real estate development. Epstein lived in Wexner’s New York City townhouse for years, eventually acquiring it, along with acquiring a private plane from Wexner.

According to a report in the Miami Herald, another of Giuffre’s lawyers, Stanley Pottinger, submitted an affidavit saying his client said that under Epstein’s direction, she had sex with both Dershowitz and Wexner.

Another Epstein accuser, Maria Farmer, said Epstein hired her to work on a mural at Wexner’s home in Ohio in the summer of 1996, and assaulted her there. In an affidavit, she asserted that “Wexner’s security staff refused to let me leave the property” and that she was held against her will for approximately 12 hours.

Farmer said that after returning to New York, she filed a report with the police and the FBI.

Federal authorities thus far have not implicated Wexner in Epstein’s crimes, according to Bloomberg

Les Wexner is listed in Epstein's black book on page 81.

Epstein recorded 16 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

Jeffrey Epstein acquired Wexner's mansion at 9 E. 71st St., considered Manhattan’s largest. The New York Times reported that Epstein declared it to be his property in a 1996 interview. According to Bloomberg, which cited one anonymous source familiar with the matter, Wexner sold the home in 1998 to a company affiliated with Epstein. Public records show the title transfer was not made until 2011, for no money.

Before Epstein received the townhouse, Wexner appears to have used the residence for some unconventional purposes, noted in a 1996 New York Times article on the then-Wexner-owned residence, which included a bathroom reminiscent of James Bond movies: hidden beneath a stairway, lined with lead to provide shelter from attack and supplied with closed-circuit television screens and a telephone, both concealed in a cabinet beneath the sink. The Times article does not speculate as to the purpose of this equipment, though the allusion to famous fictional super spy James Bond suggests that it may have been used to snoop on guests or conduct electronic surveillance.

The 1996 Times article also noted that, after Wexner bought the residence for $13.2 million in 1989, he spent millions more decorating and furnishing the home, including the addition of the electronic equipment in the ‘James Bond’ bathroom, only to apparently never live in it. The Times, which interviewed Epstein for the piece, quoted him as saying that ‘Les never spent more than two months there.’ Epstein told the Times, which identified Epstein as Wexner’s ‘protege and one of his financial advisers,’ that the house, by that time, already belonged to him.”

NYPost: A battalion of lawyers, pilots and models who worked for Epstein stayed at a doorman highrise in Manhattan — the epicenter of the Epstein empire — in apartments controlled by him and his real estate investor brother Mark, public records show.

Many of the units at 301 East 66th St. were owned by a New York shell company registered in Columbus, Ohio, the home base of Victoria’s Secret owner and Epstein’s billionaire benefactor Leslie Wexner, according to records.

Girls recruited as models from around the world were brought to the US and the building by MC2, a modeling company run by Epstein pal Jean-Luc Brunel. The company was financed by Epstein beginning in 2003, court papers show.

In 2005, Brunel called Epstein and left a message that “he is sending him a 16-year-old Russian girl for purposes of sex,” the court papers say.

Wexner and many other wealthy “clients” of Jeffrey Epstein have taken great pains to develop sophisticated PR strategies aimed at keeping their reputations unscathed from the continuing fallout in the Epstein case. Wexner and others, such as Bill Gates, have pursued a narrative where all bad deeds are attributed to the now conveniently dead Jeffrey Epstein, while his enablers, accomplices, and close associate were merely duped by Epstein’s charisma or manipulated by his wiles. Many of these individuals, however, and particularly Leslie Wexner, clearly have something to hide.

Epstein victim Maria Farmer, says Les Wexner was part of the elite sex ring.

Jean-Luc Brunel

Jean-Luc Brunel is listed in Epstein's black book on page 8, page 95.

Epstein recorded 9 phone numbers and 3 addresses under this name.

7News: February 2022 Paris police are investigating the death of the agent, Jean-Luc Brunel, the prosecutor’s office said.

A modeling agent who was close to disgraced US financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his French jail cell, where he was being held in an investigation into the rape of minors and trafficking of minors for sexual exploitation, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.

TheGuardian: Brunel and Epstein are thought to have met for the first time in the 1980s through the British socialite and now convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, but their relationship seems to have deepened in the late 1990s. According to flight logs, between 2000 and 2005 Brunel took at least two dozen trips on Epstein’s private jet – the so-called “Lolita Express”. Only a handful of people, including Maxwell, appear more often. In 2005, Brunel transformed Karin’s US division into a new agency called MC2, with financial help from Epstein, opening offices in New York and Miami. Epstein and MC2 denied they had any business relationship, but in a sworn statement in 2010, MC2’s former bookkeeper, Maritza Vasquez, said Epstein had guaranteed a $1m line of credit for the company and directly paid for the visas of models brought to the US to work for it.

Vasquez said Brunel and models as young as 13 lived in apartments controlled by Epstein on East 66th Street in Manhattan. Epstein didn’t charge rent, but Brunel billed the models $1,000 a month, Vasquez said. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers, alleged in a 2014 court filing that the system was a cover for sex trafficking. Brunel “would offer the girls ‘modelling’ jobs”, the document read.

Glenn and Eva Andersson-Dubin

FilmDaily: Eva Andersson-Dubin met Jeffrey Epstein in 1981 when she was twenty-one & Epstein was twenty-eight. The two had an eleven-year relationship, the longest relationship Epstein ever had, before they split and Eva went on to marry Glenn Dubin in 1994 and have three children. 

Andersson-Dubin, a doctor and former Miss Sweden, is the wife of hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin. She testified for the defense in Maxwell’s case, saying that she never observed Epstein acting inappropriately with minors. Her name was said in court to have appeared in the flight logs alongside the name of one of Epstein’s accusers, referred to only as “Jane” for trial purposes.

“I don’t recall ever meeting this person,” Andersson-Dubin said of “Jane.”

Eva Andersson-Dubin the former Miss Sweden was a longtime girlfriend of Epstein’s who stayed close with him even after they broke up. When she gave birth to her daughter Celina, Epstein was the godfather.

Andersson-Dubin dated Epstein between 1983 until around 1990 or 1991, and maintained a friendship with him long afterwards. They remained so close, in fact, that her two daughters and son referred to Epstein as “Uncle Eff,” a shorthand for “Jeff” that sounds like the first letter of Epstein’s name.

Eva Andersson is listed in Epstein's black book on page 69.

Epstein recorded 15 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

Of course, Andersson-Dubin married hedge fund manager Glenn Dubin instead, who’s Celina’s father. But Epstein’s obsession switched from Andersson-Dubin to Celina. He would tell associates that if he ever were to marry, it would be Celina. Even in 2014, she was added as a beneficiary to Epstein’s trusts. Keep in mind Celina was only 19 in 2014.

The Daily Mail recently published never-before-seen photographs of Jeffrey Epstein and others on a trip to Disney World (above) in 2004. The shocking photos show Epstein with several young girls surrounding him, one asleep on his lap.

According to author Kirby Sommers, who is a sex abuse survivor, the young girl in the photo asleep in Epstein’s lap has been identified as the daughter of Eva and Glenn Dubin. The youngest, who was in his lap was then 9-year-old, Celina Dubin. Maya Dubin was also on the trip.

A group of ten people were on the all-expenses paid flight, including former girlfriend and suspected accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, his personal assistant and suspected trafficker Sarah Kellen, and Slovakian model Nadia Marcinkova.

Virginia Giuffre, the most outspoken of all of Epstein’s victims appears to confirm that the girl on Jeffrey Epstein’s lap is indeed, then 9-year-old Celina Dubin. The eldest child of Glenn and Eva Dubin.

Guiffre accuses Eva and Glenn Dubin of being her “tester couple”. The first couple she was sex trafficked to by Epstein. Guifree also states that Eva Dubin was his first Madam.

Virginia Giuffre claims that Eva Dubin’s medical degree is fake and was purchased for her by Epstein.

There is also speculation that a photograph of a bare-bottomed young girl, aged 5 or 6, that was given to the FBI by Virginia Guiffre, may be a photo of Celina Dubin.

Glen Dubin is listed in Epstein's black book on page 15.

Epstein recorded 8 phone numbers and 3 addresses under this name.

VanityFair: Perhaps the most eye-opening of the names is hedge-fund billionaire Glenn Dubin, who Giuffre alleges was the first powerful man Epstein and Maxwell directed her to first have sex with, sometime in 2001. Dubin and Epstein’s friendship has been well documented ever since it was revealed last month that Epstein had invested millions in Dubin’s hedge fund Highbridge Capital and helped engineer JPMorgan’s acquisition of Dubin’s firm. (Epstein had previously dated Dubin’s wife, the former model turned physician Eva Andersson.) After Epstein’s release from a Florida prison in 2010, Andersson reportedly wrote a letter to his probation officer asserting it was okay for Epstein to be around their children. In an email statement, a spokesperson for Dubin wrote: “Glenn and Eva Dubin are outraged by the allegations against them in the unsealed court records and categorically reject them.”

In a sworn deposition, Rinaldo Rizzo, the former house manager at the Dubins’ Palm Beach mansion, described a harrowing incident in which a 15-year-old Swedish girl showed up at the house and said Epstein and Maxwell had tried to force her to have sex at Epstein’s private Caribbean island. When she refused, Maxwell took her passport.

“Was she in fear?” a lawyer asked.

“Yes,” Rizzo recalled.

“You could tell?”

“Yes. She was shaking uncontrollably.”

Later in the deposition, Giuffre was asked about details of her alleged sexual encounter with Dubin.

“What words did Ghislaine Maxwell tell you to go have sex with Glenn Dubin?” Maxwell’s lawyer said.

“It was the same all the time, all right?” Giuffre responded. “They want me to go provide these men with a massage.“

The girl was distressed, the worker — Rinaldo Rizzo — recalled, and “sat in the stool exactly the way the girls that I mentioned to you sat at Jeffrey’s house, with no expression and with their head down.”

The girl told him she had just been “on an island” and didn’t know how she got to Dubin’s house.

“She said, ‘They asked me for sex; I said no,'” Rizzo told lawyers.

She also introduced herself to him as “Jeffrey’s executive assistant, personal assistant,” a disturbing claim given her age, Rizzo testified.

Rizzo said he and his wife, who also worked for the Dubins, were so upset by the teen’s tale they quit their jobs. "We just couldn't deal with it," Rizzo said.

Ghislaine Maxwell

The Maxwell family has drawn scrutiny for its association with the Bronfman family, which counts NXIVM child trafficking cult benefactors Clare and Sara Bronfman as members. Jeffrey Epstein served as patriarch Edgar Bronfman’s tax mitigation specialist when he worked for Bear Stearns in the 1970’s.

In her deposition, the daughter of the late British media mogul Robert Maxwell said she doesn’t even remember Giuffre even though flight records show the two traveled together on Epstein’s private jet at least 23 times.

She dodges questions about whether she believed Epstein sexually abused minors. “I can only testify to what I know. I know that Virginia is a liar,” she said. Her lawyers instructed her not to answer when asked whether some 30 young women were lying when they told Palm Beach police that Epstein molested them.

BusinessInsider: Giuffre's memoir was included in evidence as part of her since-settled lawsuit against Maxwell. Giuffre describes Maxwell as an integral part of Epstein's sex ring and describes her as actively recruiting and grooming underage girls to meet Epstein's sexual needs. But Giuffre also alleges that Maxwell herself participated in sex acts (page 25), and played a key role in manipulating the girls.

According to journalists Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper, who wrote a book about Epstein called "A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein", Maxwell was actually the reason why Clinton was associating with Epstein.

The book alleged that Clinton and Maxwell were having an affair. It said that Clinton visited her Manhattan home numerous times and the pair were even spotted dining out together.

Newsweek: Maxwell and Clinton traveled on a private jet owned by billionaire Ron Burkle, as part of the former president's work with the Clinton Foundation.

Ronald Burkle's name was found in Jeffrey Epstein’s black book and on Epstein’s private jet log. Burkle took what were described as humanitarian trips to Africa with Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private Boeing 727, the Lolita Express. Following the Africa trip, Burkle reportedly returned home via a commercial jet, referring to Epstein as "creepy".

Maxwell and Clinton reportedly grew closer after a trip to China in February 2005.

The British socialite joined the former president on a visit to the Taj Mahal.

Maxwell was a guest at Chelsea Clinton's wedding in July 2010.

A former aide to the president, Doug Band, told Vanity Fair that he tried to ban Maxwell from any future events in October 2011, but said Clinton was resistant to the idea.

J. Doe 23 is deceased but was accused of 'serious wrongdoing', the documents state. They are not identified by name.

Maxwell's lawyers strongly objected to the release of any material related to J. Doe 36, who is described as an 'Epstein affiliate'.

By Bryan Llenas, FOXNews

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Jane Doe, who wishes to protect her identity, said Maxwell sexually abused her beginning in 1991 in Florida. She said the abuse continued until she was 16.

“She did rape me. I would say it’s more than 20 or 30 times,” she said. “She is just as evil as Jeffrey Epstein … She is a rapist.”

Jane Doe claims years of sexual abuse came to an end only after she became pregnant with Jeffrey Epstein’s baby. At age 16, she had an abortion.

Suspecting that she had told her grandparents about the abortion, and fearful she would talk to authorities, Doe says, Maxwell, Epstein and others gang-raped her one last time as punishment. “Ghislaine was a part of it,” Doe said. “I was drugged.”

A virgin and a child at the time, Doe explained, Maxwell would use toys and penetrate her with her fingers.

“When this started, she told me that Epstein was getting upset because I kept bleeding, and that she was helping so that it wouldn’t hurt so much because it should be satisfying.”

She claimed Maxwell was not always in the room when she was abused by Epstein, but that when she was it was to teach her how to satisfy the convicted pedophile.

“It was her more or less, coaching,” Doe said. “Do it this way and do it that way, because once you become a model, this is what they’re going to expect from you.”

“She is an evil person. I don’t believe that Jeffrey Epstein could have obtained the magnitude of victims that he had had it not been for her,” Doe said. "She destroyed what was supposed to be the best years of my life, being a teenager and being a cheerleader.”

By Dan Adler, VanityFair

A woman identified as Jane Doe claimed that the late financier Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell repeatedly raped her in 2008. Doe, who was then a 26-year-old real estate broker in Florida, said in the filing that Epstein and Maxwell issued brutal threats afterwards in an effort to prevent her from reporting the assaults to the authorities, including saying that they would feed her to alligators. Doe claimed that, for over five months, Epstein trafficked her to other men and coerced her to participate in the trafficking of other young women and girls. Epstein allegedly forced Doe to undergo genital surgery and perform sexual acts for photographs and videos.

According to the suit, in late 2006 or early 2007, Doe was working as a real estate broker in Palm Beach, where Epstein owned a mansion, and her employer introduced her to Epstein and Maxwell, who was referred to as “G-Max.” Doe was told by her employer that Epstein was looking to rent or buy real estate from him, but that she should work with Epstein only on a cash basis and that she shouldn’t process his ID. Epstein rented a property for more than $10,000 per month in cash that he gave to Doe, and Maxwell began a campaign, including expensive gifts and the promise of “highly placed employment,” to persuade Doe to work for Epstein.  

In early 2008, Doe agreed to consider the offer and visit Epstein’s home to discuss potential employment. When she arrived, the lawsuit claimed, Epstein was naked, and “firearms were in full view and displayed to Plaintiff for the purpose of frightening and intimidating her.” With Maxwell’s assistance, he allegedly raped Doe. Epstein forced Doe to accept about $200 as “compensation,” and Doe tried to leave and said that she would call the police. Maxwell then appeared to call the police herself, and two people claiming to be police officers arrived and threatened to arrest Doe for prostitution, take her eight-year-old son away, and have her, her son, or both of them deported.

“Crediting and fearing these threats,” the lawsuit said, “and further crediting that these two individuals were in fact police officers, Plaintiff refrained thereafter from contacting law enforcement or commencing civil litigation out of fear for herself and her family.” Immediately afterwards, according to Doe, Maxwell and Epstein forced Doe to drive with them in her car to pick up her son. They drove around two hours to a hotel in Naples, Florida, while Doe cried. Epstein and Maxwell stopped the car at a body of water filled with alligators, where Epstein allegedly told Doe “in explicit detail that, as had happened to other girls in the past, she would end up in this body of water and be devoured by the alligators, should she ever reveal what Epstein had done to her.” Doe said that she feared that Epstein would follow through on the death threat until she learned of his death in 2019.

Sarah Kellen

Politico: Epstein's victims say they were key to grooming and deceiving them and allowing Epstein to operate with impunity. In fact, most of Epstein’s victims were introduced to him through other women, according to the 12 victims I’ve spoken with over the past year and a half, as well as dozens of allegations in court and in the media. Often, victims say, it was the women around Epstein who tried to make them feel comfortable, as if what they were experiencing was normal or harmless.

After his release, a number of female socialites and professionals helped to welcome Epstein, by then a registered sex offender, back into elite circles. His abuse then continued, court documents assert.

In Epstein’s world, women both were victims of a hostile environment and sometimes also reaped the benefits of their association with him, or worse.

None of this would have been possible just with Ghislaine Maxwell riding around in a car. Epstein’s victims needed to be arranged, compensated and instructed to bring more victims. A second tier of women employed as “assistants” kept the wheels of the sex- trafficking enterprise turning.

None of these women has been charged with wrongdoing connected to Epstein, but they have been named in legal documents and by victims. Sarah Kellen, Nadia Marcinkova, Lesley Groff and Adriana Ross all were named as unindicted co-conspirators in Epstein’s 2008 non-prosecution agreement. According to lawsuits filed by Epstein’s victims, court testimony and police reports, Kellen, Groff and Ross were tasked with scheduling and managing the teenage girls coming in and out of his houses, including collecting contact information, taking messages and arranging the girls’ travel.

Kellen (who has also gone by the name Sarah Kensington), 41, was Epstein’s personal assistant. In lawsuits and victim interviews, she has been described as Maxwell’s “lieutenant,” or second in command. Multiple victims have said in court documents that she was instrumental in their abuse, including escorting them up to Epstein’s room. When police began investigating Epstein’s behavior in Florida in the mid-2000s, they sought an arrest warrant for Kellen, though the Palm Beach County state attorney’s office denied the request, citing insufficient evidence.

It’s Kellen whom Courtney Wild, 33, remembers most vividly from the day she first walked through Epstein’s doors in Palm Beach in 2002. Wild was just 14, still in middle school with a mouth full of braces. To her, Kellen’s friendliness made the situation seem normal.

“You’re 14 years old and you go to a mansion, and then Sarah Kellen—I mean, she’s a beautiful woman, too, she’s very nice, you know—escorts me upstairs,” Wild said in an interview. “It’s weird. But I just kind of went with the flow of what everybody else was doing.” (In 2008, Wild sued the federal government for violating the rights of Epstein’s victims by striking his non-prosecution agreement without their knowledge, a case that is ongoing. She has been a public advocate for victims’ rights since and has spoken openly about her story.)

Once she was recruited, Wild says she was told she had another option: Instead of having sex with Epstein, she could be paid to recruit others. And she wasn’t alone. During a raid on Epstein’s house in 2005, police found phone logs, signed by Kellen, with the names of teenagers who were called for confirmation of “work.” Epstein essentially was running an enterprise at Royal Palm Beach High School. According to victim testimony given to the Palm Beach police, each teen would earn around $200 if she brought a new friend to Epstein. This spread throughout the school. Although Palm Beach is known for its wealth, surrounding towns are less affluent. For girls from underprivileged families, $200 was a big deal. Wild was living in a trailer park at the time with a mother who struggled with addiction. She told me she feared she would become homeless without the money she was earning from Epstein.

Kellen visited Epstein during and after his first incarceration multiple times, according to prison records. But she considers herself one of Epstein’s victims, too. Born into a strict family of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she started working for Epstein when she was 22, after divorcing her first husband, and becoming estranged from her parents and community. “When Sarah was targeted by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, she, like many of their victims, was struggling financially and emotionally,” her spokesperson said in a statement.

Wild told me it’s upsetting for her to hear that Kellen calls herself a victim. “How could you do this?” she said tearily. “She was over the age of 21 … so I feel like she was in a state of mind to make good and bad decisions, and she repeatedly made the wrong decision.”

Beyond Maxwell and Epstein’s assistants was a larger, more informal network of women who were lured by Epstein’s gifts—cash, trips, college credits, apartments or access to his powerful contacts—to bring other women to him. In some cases, they scoured nightclubs or restaurants for Epstein’s type, which he described to Wild and other victims as “the younger the better.”

By Louise Boyle, DailyMail

Jeffrey Epstein's female fixer, who allegedly procured underage girls for him to sexually abuse and was the keeper of his little black book, was still socializing with the convicted pedophile in 2012.

Sarah Kellen was seen cozied up to Epstein in February 2012 as they walked along Madison Avenue in Manhattan deep in conversation, before heading to Epstein's $77 million townhouse.

Kellen was accused of making massage appointments for Epstein and pressuring young girls into not talking to police who said they were 'intimidated and frightened by her,' according to the Miami Herald.

Several alleged victims told police they were taken to Epstein's massage room at his Palm Beach mansion by a woman named Sarah after she laid out the massage oils.

According to flight logs, Kellen also traveled on Epstein's private jet with former President Bill Clinton on at least 11 flights between 2002 and 2003.

Kellen was given federal immunity under Epstein's non-prosecution agreement in 2007, made with former Miami federal prosecutor and Trump administration Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta.

Kellen, along with fellow executive assistants, Lesley Groff, Nadia Marcinkova and Adriana Ross, were named in Epstein's 2008 sweetheart deal as 'potential co-conspirators'. She remained fiercely loyal to Epstein after the deal and along with Marcinkova, visited him dozens of times in jail.

Kellen was asked by a lawyer: 'Would you agree with me that Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein used to share under-aged girls for sexual relations?'

She replied: 'On the instruction of my lawyer, I must invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege.'

Kellen and her fellow assistants were generously compensated for working for Epstein, where they made themselves available 24/7 and were 'indispensable to his personal and business success', according to a 2005 article in the New York Times.

'They are an extension of my brain,' Epstein told the Times. 'Their intuition is something that I don't have.'

Epstein paid each assistant more than $200,000 a year and the position came with perks – access to top hairstylist Frédéric Fekkai, private jet trips and meals from New York's top restaurants.

After avoiding prosecution, Kellen, 40, took steps to conceal her sordid past.

She went from a blonde to a brunette and re-emerged as Sarah Kensington (she also goes by the aliases Sarah Lynnelle Vickers and Sarah Bonk, according to public records.)

US District Judge Alison Nathan sentenced Ghislaine Maxwell to twenty years in jail.

In discussing the scope of Maxwell’s function in Epstein’s sex-trafficking scheme, Nathan recognized Kellen as “a understanding participant within the felony conspiracy” and mentioned she was “a criminally accountable participant.”

One of the victims within the trial, Carolyn, testified that at one event, Kellen took nude images of her.

It’s not clear why prosecutors haven’t introduced felony charges against Kellen.

Rina Oh

By Kate Briquelet, TheDailyBeast

Oh said she was studying at the School of Visual Arts when a friend introduced her to Epstein, who she hoped would become her patron. Epstein allegedly offered to pay for a few of her school credits, as well as a gallery space in Soho.

She was 21 at the time and living in the New York suburbs with her parents when a friend introduced her to the man who would become what Oh described as a rich, older boyfriend. “I found myself a really great art patron who’s going to buy artwork from me,” she initially thought.

The artist claims she believed she and Epstein were in a relationship; she considered him her older rich boyfriend. Asked whether Epstein was also in a relationship with Giuffre, Oh replied, “I’m not going to answer that. I just know she was around him a lot.”

Giuffre took to Twitter to slam Oh as “a deranged woman who was NO victim” and called for authorities to investigate her as a “co-conspirator.” She also railed against Oh’s participation in the victim compensation fund. “Rina- if you read this I hope you live in shame for the rest of your life,” Giuffre wrote. “You don’t intimidate me any longer & the physical & mental scares you left me with should be enough to put your a** in jail…”

As more victims and witnesses come forward, their stories highlight the difficulties prosecutors face in deciding whether to charge Epstein’s alleged accomplices, who also identify as victims of Epstein themselves. Sarah Kellen and Nadia Marcinkova, two co-conspirators in Epstein’s Florida case, broke their silence after his arrest to say (through spokespersons) that he sexually abused them for years.

Giuffre told the podcast Epstein introduced her to Oh in New York, and alleges that Oh was involved in abusing her during some S&M activity. “Rina was willing to do whatever Epstein wanted,” Giuffre said, adding that Oh was upset Epstein didn’t invite her to travel to the Caribbean with other young women he abused. Epstein cut Oh from his circle sometime after Giuffre informed him Oh wanted to join their entourage, Giuffre said. “I never saw Rina again after that conversation,” Giuffre told the podcast.

Oh admitted that she took Giuffre shopping on St. Mark’s Place for a “sexy” schoolgirl outfit after Epstein called her and said, “You would know where to go. Take her there.”

Oh never questioned why Epstein wanted then 17-year-old Giuffre in school-girl attire. Oh replied, “I wasn’t asking any questions; I just did as I was told. You don’t ask questions. You’re not privy to ask; that’s rude. You’re dealing with a billionaire.”

When countered that Giuffre was a child, Oh pushed back: “Seventeen to me is not a child. Seventeen is a minor… And 17 is of legal age in New York State.”

Oh was 22 at the time, while Giuffre was 17 and Epstein 48.

Two of Epstein’s accusers, in fact, say Oh did more than that. Marijke Chartouni, a friend whom Oh introduced to Epstein when she was 20, told me she was sexually assaulted by both Oh and Epstein in her first, and only, encounter with him. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of Epstein’s most vocal victims, who says she was recruited into Epstein’s orbit by Maxwell, also accuses Oh of violence. In a draft of a memoir filed as evidence in a defamation lawsuit, Giuffre wrote that Oh “loved bondage, whipping, hitting and cutting her sex partner with little sharp knives until they subdued [sic] to her punishment in agonizing pain.” In an interview, Giuffre showed me a scar on her upper thigh that she said came from one of these sex acts. She was 17 at the time.

Giuffre is accusing Oh of cutting and slashing her during "sadomasochist" sex acts "for Epstein's pleasure."

“What Rina did cannot be let go. The control she possessed over me, it wasn’t just a cut. She demeaned me.”

In response to Giuffre’s claims, Oh told us, “I did not participate in any type of S&M activity with Virginia or anyone else in Epstein’s orbit.”

“If Virginia was abused in that manner, it was absolutely not with me,” Oh said.

Giuffre fired back in a lawsuit from December claiming Oh’s defamation case was retaliation and an attempt to punish Giuffre for Twitter posts — including one saying Oh “procured & partook in the abuse of minors” — that are protected free speech under the Constitution.

“My line in the sand is… did you have the ability to get out?” Giuffre told The Daily Beast. “If you did, why didn’t you? Especially people like Rina. She wanted to be there. She was complaining [Epstein] wouldn’t take her places. That doesn’t sound like a victim to me.”

“I was seeing a man named Jeffrey. To this day, I still believe I was in a relationship with him,” Oh said. “That’s how much he victimized me. He made me believe we were in a relationship. It wasn’t until I spent a week with Jeffrey and Ghislaine in Florida that I started seeing the scope of his manipulation.”

The artist claims she spent a week with Epstein and Maxwell in Palm Beach, Florida, in March 2001—along with another young woman in her 20s—and that the couple took her to Mar-A-Lago a few times. Looking back, Oh suspects the creepy duo was shopping her around to their rich friends.

Oh added, saying she only brought three women to Epstein’s Upper East Side home.

Oh admits to delivering three young women to Epstein’s New York mansion. “I was in the room when Marijke and I were both victimized by Epstein,” Oh told the podcast.

Marijke Chartouni found the woman who recruited her for Jeffrey Epstein 20 years ago, she felt a sense of closure and relief. Here was someone who could confirm that the perverted financier sexually assaulted Chartouni, not only because she was a witness but because she participated in the disturbing encounter.

As The Daily Beast previously reported, Chartouni was a 20-year-old model in 2000 when a friend named “Rina” brought her to Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse. During the visit, she says, both Rina and the financier assaulted her. Chartouni didn’t tell a soul about the encounter until after Epstein’s arrest in July 2019.

Leon Black 

Leon Black, one of the billionaire cofounders of Apollo Global Management, the publicly traded private-equity and investment firm with around $350 billion under management. According to Bloomberg, Black has a net worth of nearly $10 billion.

Leon Black is listed in Epstein's black book on page 70.

Epstein recorded 5 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

In 2012, Black took a yacht from a family vacation in the Caribbean to go to a cookout at Epstein’s Virgin Islands home.

As previously reported by The Post, Epstein was listed as a director on the board of Leon Black’s charity, the Black Family Foundation, between 2001 and 2012. READ MORE: Leon Black flew model to Florida to have sex with Jeffrey Epstein, lawsuit claims

An investigation by Apollo’s board of directors revealed Black paid Epstein $158 million in fees and services, loaned him over $30 million and made a $10 million donation to Epstein’s charity before the two cut off their relationship in 2018 over a “fee dispute.” READ MORE: Leon Black Claims 'Extortion’ By Russian Model: The Latest Scandal Plaguing The Epstein-Linked Billionaire, Explained

VanityFair: Black paid Epstein $158 million for advice on issues including tax, estate planning, and structuring that, saved Black between $1 billion and $2 billion. Somehow, we are supposed to believe that Jeffrey Epstein, a college dropout who taught math for about two years at the Dalton School, on the Upper East Side, and then worked at Bear Stearns before being fired, is responsible for between 10% and 20% of Black’s net worth. (Even by Wall Street standards, the fees Black agreed to pay Epstein were preposterous. “You could buy a law firm for what Leon agreed to pay Epstein,” a retired CEO told me.)

Leon Black is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Bill Gates

LawAndCrime: A former butler to dead sex offender Jeffrey Epstein spoke to a French news channel and said that Epstein courted some famous guests at his Paris apartment, including former Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon, Prince Andrew and Bill and Melinda Gates.

Time: In an investigation carried out by the New York Times in 2019, it was revealed that Gates had met with Epstein on multiple occasions from 2011, when Gates was still chairman of Microsoft, including at Epstein’s mansion. Epstein also spoke with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and JP Morgan Chase about a proposed multibillion-dollar charitable fund.

The emails between Ito and Epstein showed that Gates was “directed by Epstein” to donate $2 million to the research lab in October 2014, six years after Epstein was found guilty of soliciting prostitution from a minor.

Gates also met with Epstein in New York in 2013, and flew on one of his private planes to Palm Beach, Business Insider previously reported.

TheSun: Bill Gates reportedly asked Jeffrey Epstein for advice on how to end his “toxic” marriage with wife Melinda amid reports of his alleged affair.

It was also reported Gates “had an affair with a female staffer" and “asked employees out while he was married".

Board members are said to have carried out an investigation into the billionaire’s romantic relationship with a Microsoft engineer in late 2019 after she claimed in a letter she had a sexual relationship with Gates for a number of years.

NYPost: Bill Gates courted Jeffrey Epstein in the twisted belief the well-connected pedophile could help him get a Nobel Peace Prize.

Gates joined Epstein in a trip to Europe in March 2013, according to Dagens Næringsliv, Norway’s largest business newspaper.

The pair visited the Strasbourg home of Thorbjorn Jagland, who at the time was chair of the committee which awards the Peace Prize, the paper noted, saying Gates was being touted as a recipient at the time.

Gates “thought that Jeffrey would be able to help him, that he would know the right people, or some kind of way to massage things, so he could get the Nobel Peace Prize, which is what Bill wants more than anything else in the world.”

In a 2019 interview with the Wall Street Journal, months after Epstein’s death, Bill Gates denied that he’d ever been particularly close to the sex offender.

Wexner and many other wealthy “clients” of Jeffrey Epstein have taken great pains to develop sophisticated PR strategies aimed at keeping their reputations unscathed from the continuing fallout in the Epstein case. Wexner and others, such as Bill Gates, have pursued a narrative where all bad deeds are attributed to the now conveniently dead Jeffrey Epstein, while his enablers, accomplices, and close associate were merely duped by Epstein’s charisma or manipulated by his wiles. Many of these individuals, however, and particularly Leslie Wexner, clearly have something to hide.

Ehud Barak

TheJerusalemPost: Former prime minister Ehud Barak was a “frequent guest, almost a fixture” at convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in New York before Epstein’s death in 2019, according to a new book by journalist Michael Wolff.

Too Famous: The Rich, The Powerful, The Wishful, The Damned, The Notorious – Twenty Years of Columns, Essays and Reporting, to be released on Tuesday, features Barak’s relationship with Epstein in great detail.

According to Wolff, Barak worked hard to rehabilitate Epstein’s image following a Miami Herald story in 2017 that broke the allegation of rape, molestation and sex trafficking of underage girls that turned into an arrest in July 2019.

Epstein and Barak, along with the former’s lawyer, Reid Weingarten, reportedly asked Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist and senior counselor to the president who they described as a “new friend,” for a PR strategy to publicly exonerate Epstein.

Barak, who reportedly excused Epstein’s crimes as merely prostitution and claimed it is “no longer called prostitution... it is something else, much worse,” once joked to Epstein that they have “nothing to worry about” as the secrets “are safe,” according to Wolff.

Barak and Epstein also reportedly claimed that former US attorney-general William Barr was the most powerful man in the United States during Donald Trump’s presidency.

Trump “lets someone else be in charge until other people realize that someone, other than him, is in charge,” Epstein reportedly said.

According to the Herald, Barak was named within the confidential documents as one of the people the plaintiff was trafficked to and forced to have sex with.

Ehud Barak is listed in Epstein's black book on page 69, page 95.

Epstein recorded 7 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

TheJerusalemPost: Ehud Barak, head of the Israeli Democratic Party, was caught on camera entering the Manhattan townhouse of Jeffery Epstein with his face hidden, on the same day that a large group of women were seen entering the sex offender's home, the New York Daily News reported.

The photos were taken in January 2016, after Epstein arrived in New York from an overseas trip, according to the Daily Mail. At least four young women were seen going into the home within a matter of hours.

At the time, the Daily Mail reported that the four women included friends of Epstein Sue Hamblin and Jennifer Kalin as well as Russian model Lana Pozhidaeva. The fourth women, who remains unidentified, was seen joining Epstein on a trip to Teterborough Airport in New Jersey, where Epstein keeps his plane.

"I was there, for lunch or chat, nothing else. So what?" said Barak. "I never attended a party with him. I never met Epstein in the company of women or young girls."

The Israeli politician added that he had also been to Little St. James, Epstein's private island in the US Virgin Islands known as the "Island of Sin" – even after revelations that Epstein used the island for underage sex, although he claimed that he had not been to any parties or met girls there.

Epstein financed much of an investment of several million dollars formerly made by Barak in the company Reporty Homeland Security, according to Haaretz. Now called Carbyne, it develops call-handling and identification capabilities for emergency response services.

Michael Chertoff, who ran Homeland Security under former president George W. Bush, serves on Carbyne’s advisory board. Chertoff wrote the Patriot Act, which authorised sweeping digital surveillance of Americans.

Peter Thiel, one of the founders of Paypal, Facebook and Palantir, is also a Carbyne investor.

Thiel is an avid Trump supporter, and is heavily invested in military and intelligence companies. Thiel’s Palantir is described as making use of “war on terror tools to track American citizens”.

Today, Carbyne is in the process of expanding in the United States. The firm hired LSN Partners to lobby for the Build Back Better Act and the potential $500 million in subsidies for 911 call center updates therein, according to public disclosures required by the Lobbying Registration Act.

The LSN lobbyists listed on its disclosure forms include Tom Quinn, a former legislative director for then-Rep. Peter Visclosky (D-Ind.), and José Fuentes, a former communications director for USAID and former staffer for the Office of the Vice President and the Department of Defense.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has challenged Barak to explain why he was paid over $2 million by the Wexner Foundation in 2004 for what was described as a research program, when Epstein was among the foundation’s trustees. Barak was not in public office at the time. The Jewish philanthropist Leslie Wexner and Epstein were close friends and business associates at the time.

Neighbors in a New York Apartment building owned by Epstein’s brother said that Barak was a “frequent presence” in the building, The Daily Beast reported last year.

Residents told the outlet that they knew when the politician was in the building because there were “flashy cars” outside and his security detail in the lobby.

A resident told the outlet they were in the elevator with Hebrew-speaking security guards and another said she regularly saw a guard posted outside an 11th-floor apartment. A further resident said they saw a security detail in the lobby on at least a dozen occasions.

The building has been tied to the financier’s alleged New York trafficking ring, The Daily Beast reported.

Asked about his stays by The Daily Beast, Barak said: “Despite the fact that there was no wrongdoing on my part, and that there is not even the faintest suspicion of wrongdoing on my part, I’m not going to address these questions because in the current political environment in Israel, the mere fact of my response to such a question is churned up as spin in the political game.

“As a former prime minister I’m accompanied by bodyguards everywhere I go,” he added.

The Daily Mail’s online news site last year rejected an ultimatum by Barak to retract a “libelous” article insinuating he socialized with young women at the home of Epstein.

The US-based DailyMail.com said it stood by the story “100 percent,” and denied as “absurd” Barak’s claim that the decision to re-publish three-year-old photos of him entering the New York mansion of the disgraced billionaire was a bid to help his political rivals ahead of the elections. (The article did not appear in the main Daily Mail tabloid newspaper in Britain.)

Epstein’s black book included a short section labelled Israel that contained contact information for two former prime ministers, Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, as well as several other individuals with Israeli government email addresses.

Ehud Olmert is listed in Epstein's black book on page 68.

Epstein recorded 3 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

Bill Clinton

Giuffre was also an eye-witness to many guests passing through Epstein's social orbit, including then-presidential candidate Al Gore and President Bill Clinton. Giuffre describes Gore as dedicated to his wife (page 109), but didn't say the same for Clinton. Though she didn't have a sexual relationship with Clinton, Giuffre said she saw him with two young women while on Epstein's island (page 110).

Former President Bill Clinton traveled on Epstein’s plane several times over a two-year period, in many cases internationally. The records indicate that he was often accompanied by someone identified as “Doug Bands,” whose name is curiously similar to former longtime Clinton aide Doug Band.

On one of those trips, Clinton was a passenger along with supermodel Naomi Campbell, who has since pushed back on speculation about her connection to Epstein and Maxwell.

On Sept. 21, 2002, Epstein took Clinton, actor Kevin Spacey (who has faced sexual abuse allegations of his own) and others from JFK airport to an airport in the Azores, the autonomous Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.

Clinton is making headlines after the files have shown that Giuffre said that she once saw the former president on Epstein's island with "two young girls."

Guiffre said: "You know, I remember asking Jeffrey what's Bill Clinton doing here [on Epstein's island] kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me favors."

"He told me a long time ago that everyone owes him favors. They're all in each other's pockets."

Court filings show that Clinton traveled on Epstein’s private plane the “Lolita Express,” 26 times. Clinton allegedly flew with a softcore porn actress listed under "massages" in Epstein's address book. Maxwell was also a guest at Chelsea Clinton's wedding.

Karyna Shuliak is reported to be Epstein’s last girlfriend before he died in 2019. Karyna arrived in the U.S. from Belarus in 2009 when she was twenty years old and shortly thereafter met Jeffrey Epstein. 

Jeffrey Epstein court doc names 70 people who ‘knew of sex trafficking and underage victims,’ according to ‘sex slave’

Trump, spoke highly of the financier to New York magazine in 2002.

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with,” Trump said. “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it – Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Given Epstein’s illegal behavior was an open secret, which Trump may have participated in, you seem to have Trump expressly praising a pedophile, and then promoting the government official who helped prevent Epstein from receiving real justice for his crimes.

Former President Donald Trump took at least seven trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private plane — far more than was previously known, according to newly released flight logs. Clinton took 26 flights with Epstein and underage girls. (Epstein's flight logs/black book are online). The prison had two cameras/guards watching Jeffrey Epstein but the guards fell asleep and both cameras malfunctioned on the same day he died in his jail cell. Does anyone else smell the stench coming out of our Justice department?

Donald Trump 

LawAndCrime: Long before ascending to the perch of the 45th president of the United States, Trump’s admitted ties to Epstein and Maxwell have been well-documented. In 2002, he told New York Magazine that he has “known Jeff for fifteen years,” and called him a “terrific guy.”

Independent: Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's girlfriend briefly discussed Epstein's hidden cameras and sex tapes with CBS News 60 Minutes producer Ira Rosen, also making clear that there were tapes of both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. The conversation took place in 2016 and she reportedly told Rosen that, given Trump’s involvement in the upcoming election, she would not release any information derived from the tapes relating to Clinton until after the election and she would only do so while also exposing Trump. Up until now, she has done neither.

In 2020, after Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested and charged with grooming young girls for abuse by Epstein, Trump wished her the best.

Trump first appears in Epstein’s flight logs in April 1993. Months later, he took two trips on Epstein’s plane around the time Trump’s daughter Tiffany Trump was born. Trump, along with Epstein, Maxwell, and others, flew from Palm Beach, Florida to Teterboro, New Jersey, on Oct. 11 and Oct. 17, 1993; Tiffany was born in Palm Beach on Oct. 13, 1993.

Tiffany, along with her mother Marla Maples (whom Trump wed in December 1993 and divorced in 1999), were guests on Epstein’s plane in May 1994.

The next year, on August 13, 1995, Trump and his son Eric Trump flew on Epstein’s plane, again from Palm Beach to Teterboro.

Trump appears to have hitched a ride from Florida to the tristate area on Jan. 5, 1997, joining Epstein, Maxwell, and others on a flight from Palm Beach to Newark, N.J.

A handwritten entry in the flight logs shows a trip that Trump and the Dubins took from the Palm Beach International Airport to the Newark Liberty International Airport.

The other named passengers, besides Trump and the Dubins, are Jeffrey Epstein ("JE"), Ghislaine Maxwell ("GM"), Mark Epstein, and someone identified as "Didler" or "Didier." The date of flight is listed as January 5, 1997. The log lists the model of the plane as a Gulfstream II, under the tail number N908JE.

Former President Donald Trump took at least seven trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private plane — far more than was previously known, according to newly released flight logs.

Epstein’s personal little black book, which was leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 10 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him. 

Epstein victim Maria Farmer claims Ivana Trump, President Trump’s ex-wife, frequently accompanied Ghislaine Maxwell when she went to recruit pre-teen girls for Epstein.

SacramentoNewsReview: A California woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her a quarter-century ago when she was 13 has gone to ground, says her former attorney, deepening the mystery surrounding “Katie Johnson.”

“Recent attempts to reach … her have revealed that she has disconnected her telephone number,” Evan Goldman, a New Jersey attorney who represented Johnson in late 2016, wrote in an email.

“Katie Johnson” and “Jane Doe” are pseudonyms the woman used to sue Trump and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in California and New York federal courts, before Trump was elected president in 2016 and before authorities say Epstein hung himself in a jail cell in August while facing child sex trafficking charges.

Woody Allen

SheKnows: “Woody was a very close friend of Epstein’s,” Doe’s lawyer Brad Edwards told Daily Beast in 2021. “They hung out quite frequently. I cannot comment beyond that.”

Allen has never formally been charged with the sexual abuse of his then-7-year-old daughter Dylan Farrow, but he was also definitively not cleared of suspicion, with a 1993 decision not to go to trial hinging upon Dylan’s mental health needs despite an attorney who found “probable cause” to prosecute Allen.

What he cannot deny, however, is a friendship with the late Jeffrey Epstein, who was once an esteemed New York City financier with many wealthy, famous clients much like Allen. After a 2008 conviction on charges of procuring a child for prostitution and soliciting a prostitute, to which Epstein pleaded guilty, he saw some of those high-profile friends begin to play down their closeness — but not Allen.

One of Epstein’s victims who filed a lawsuit against the late criminal specifically names Allen as a part of Epstein’s social circle.

“On one occasion, Jeffrey Epstein forced [Priscilla Doe] to serve hors d’oeuvres at Epstein’s private party with Woody Allen,” says the lawsuit, per the Daily Beast. “This server’s role was forced upon [her] in order to demean her, frighten her, and impress upon her the need for her to conceal the commercial sex trafficking enterprise he was running.”

TheDailyBeast: Adoptive father, Woody Allen, took a 7-year-old Dylan up to the attic of their Connecticut country home and molested her.

Allen is not afraid of defending powerful men who have been credibly accused of sexual misconduct. He’s served as one of Roman Polanski’s most vocal defenders, saying the fugitive filmmaker is “a nice person” who’s “paid his dues” for raping a 13-year-old girl and then fleeing the country, and in the immediate wake of the sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, accused the movie mogul’s victims of conducting “a witch hunt” against him, before walking it back.

And then there’s his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.

It’s not clear when Allen and Epstein first crossed paths, though the two were longtime friends and neighbors on Manhattan’s Upper East Side for years. The director and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, have been photographed a few times leaving the financier’s townhouse—including in September 2013, five years after Epstein pleaded guilty to child prostitution charges, when a Page Six headline declared: “Woody Allen pals around with child-sex creep.”

Around the same time, Epstein hosted another dinner at his New York home, where he introduced Allen to a connection at MIT. Joi Ito, former director of the MIT Media Lab, “met other influential individuals at meetings with Epstein, including Woody Allen, a senior executive at the Hyatt Corporation, and a former prime minister of Israel,” according to a report commissioned by the school on its ties to Epstein.

The duo also reportedly had another mutual friend: Allen’s former teenage mistress, model Christina Engelhardt, who was 16 when she began dating the director in 1976. Their secret relationship lasted eight years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Engelhardt tells The Daily Beast that she worked as a personal assistant for Epstein in the early 1980s, back when he “wasn’t there yet” when it came to sex-trafficking underage girls. She says she told Epstein that she’d dated Allen, but that the two New Yorkers weren’t friendly yet.

As The Daily Beast previously reported, Epstein and Allen also had mutual friends in Paris. Former French politician Jack Lang—who’s publicly defended Allen amid Dylan’s child sexual abuse allegations—claimed he met Epstein in 2012 at a party hosted by Princess Camilla of Bourbon Two Sicilies. The socialite threw the party in Allen’s honor.

One victim of Epstein even mentioned meeting Allen in a lawsuit she filed against the financier’s estate. The woman, referred to as Priscilla Doe, says she was a 20-year-old dancer in New York when Epstein began abusing her in 2006 until 2012—including when he was on “work release” at the Palm Beach County lockup.

Tom Barrack

BusinessInsider: Tom Barrack's links to the Mueller investigation and ties to Michael Jackson, Harvey Weinstein, and Jeffrey Epstein were thrust into the spotlight on Tuesday after an activist investor published a scathing letter calling for his resignation as CEO of Colony Capital.

TheGuardian: Barrack has been a business associate and confidant of Trump’s for decades. They met through their mutual work in real estate, and in the 1980s and 1990s, Barrack, Trump, and the socialite and sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein formed a trio of “nightlife musketeers”, the journalist Michael Wolff wrote in his book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. When Trump ran for president, Barrack, working with Manafort, raised millions of dollars for his campaign.

Tom Barrack is listed in Epstein's black book on page 69.

Epstein recorded 9 phone numbers and 1 address under this name.

AsiaTimes: Many came to understand they could rely on the jet-setting host as a pimp.

The British tabloid the Daily Mail published photos showing Barak appearing to hide his face in a neck warmer as he entered Epstein’s mansion in January 2016. A number of young women were photographed entering the residence on the same day. Three of the four are named and identified as being above the age of consent.

Mark Epstein 

NYPost: A battalion of lawyers, pilots and models who worked for Epstein stayed at a doorman highrise in Manhattan — the epicenter of the Epstein empire — in apartments controlled by him and his real estate investor brother Mark, public records show.

Many of the units at 301 East 66th St. were owned by a New York shell company registered in Columbus, Ohio, the home base of Victoria’s Secret owner and Epstein’s billionaire benefactor Leslie Wexner, according to records.

Girls recruited as models from around the world were brought to the US and the building by MC2, a modeling company run by Epstein pal Jean-Luc Brunel. The company was financed by Epstein beginning in 2003, court papers show.

In 2005, Brunel called Epstein and left a message that “he is sending him a 16-year-old Russian girl for purposes of sex,” the court papers say.

In addition to his secretaries, Epstein worked with his longtime lawyer Darren Indyke, who occupied a two-bedroom apartment at the East 66th Street building between May 2000 and February 2009, public records show.

Indyke’s apartment was owned by Ossa Properties, a firm controlled by Mark Epstein.

David Koch 

David Koch is listed in Epstein's black book on page 31.

Epstein recorded 2 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

According to The Daily Mail: Epstein was invited to a party at David Koch’s house in September, 2010 – just months after Epstein had been released from prison.

Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with high-profile guests from the worlds of politics, banking, Hollywood and philanthropy at a Hamptons party just two months after his release by the state of Florida for soliciting a minor.

Among those guests were two men who currently serve in President Trump’s cabinet and his most trusted legal adviser.

CBSNews: Trump began surrounding himself with cabinet members and advisors closely knitted to the Kochs. Vice president elect Mike Pence, White House Counsel Don McGahn and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, for example, are all connected to the Kochs in various ways.

Koch is responsible for getting many Congressional Republicans elected.

David, helped bankroll and shape 2010′s conservative Tea Party movement and founded the hugely influential conservative organization Americans for Prosperity in 2004.

APICCIANO: Koch is listed by Forbes as the 15th richest man in the U.S., and is worth some $45 billion. Koch Industries’ PAC and employees contributed $2.8 million to GOP candidates during the 2020 political cycle, noted the Journal.

The brothers were revealed as the powerful stealth engineers of a radical right movement in the U.S. in the ground-breaking 2016 book “Dark Money,” by New Yorker writer Jane Mayer. The Kochs funded ultra-conservative think tanks, peppered universities with hundreds of rightwing academics and used their wealth to boost an army of conservative politicians into office.

The family money also bankrolls the American Legislative Exchange Council which pens template bills for conservative politicians to introduce in state legislatures across the nation. And Koch plotted back in February to overturn a Trump loss at the polls.

Trump pulled the US from the Paris agreement, because the Koch network of funders spent an estimated $1 billion telling the Republican Party what to do, over the last few election cycles. Charles D. and David H. Koch, the Kansas-based billionaires run a chain of refineries (which can process 600,000 barrels of crude oil per day) as well as a subsidiary that owns or operates 4,000 miles of pipelines that move crude oil.

TruthOut: The head of the EPA is the person responsible for protecting our air, land, and water. Trump chose Scott Pruitt, a longtime ally of the fossil fuel industry, to lead that agency. Pruitt is known for his unusually close ties to the that industry, which are extensive even by Republican Party standards.

As Oklahoma’s Attorney General, Pruitt sued the agency he now runs many times. A CMD review of Pruitt’s emails showed that he allowed the industry to write the comments that he filed with federal agencies. The Koch Brothers’ network of shell “advocacy groups,” which CMD has analyzed at length, turned out in force to support Pruitt’s nomination.

Other Trump cabinet appointees are also closely allied with the fossil-fuel industry, including Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross, Transportation Sec. Elaine Chao, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and of course Rex Tillerson, who led Exxon for years.

The fossil-fuel connection runs deep in the Trump Administration. The Sabin Center analyzed lower-level appointments in agencies responsible for energy, the environment and natural resources. It found that more than half of those appointed “appear(ed) to lack expertise and/or experience” related to their new responsibilities, while more than one-quarter “had close ties to the fossil fuel industry.”

With Trump’s pullout from the Paris agreement, the US becomes one of only three nations that is not part of that agreement. One of the other two, Nicaragua, wants a stronger agreement. The other is Syria, which is in the middle of a catastrophic civil war.

With the help of the Koch Brothers, Trump and the Republican Party have “moved in the opposite direction from virtually the rest of the world,” wrote Jane Mayer.

It’s time the world began to hold them to account.

Bill Barr

Heavy: While it was once thought that Barr would be recusing himself from having oversight on the Epstein prosecution, on July 9, it was clarified that Barr consulted with career ethics officials at the department, and concluded that he only needed to recuse himself from the internal Justice Department probe of Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, and his involvement of approving a highly controversial no-prosecution deal with Epstein back in the 2008.

There is concern over William Barr’s involvement in Epstein’s case, not only for the way he handled Robert Mueller’s testimony over the Russian probe, but because of his personal ties with Epstein himself.

In 2009, Barr joined the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, the same law firm that represented Jeffrey Epstein in 2008 which ended in a no-prosecution.

The deal was made between Acosta, who previously worked at Kirkland & Ellis, and was the Miami U.S. attorney at the time, and Kirkland & Ellis senior partner Jay Lefkowitz, along with colleagues Kenneth Starr, Gerald Lefcourt, and Alan Dershowitz. Court records show Kirkland & Ellis continued to represented Epstein through 2011, while Barr worked at the firm.

Frank Figliuzzi, a former FBI Assistant Director for counterintelligence said that Barr’s Father, Donald Barr, once hired Epstein to teach at Dalton School, a private academy in New York City. Back in 1973, even though Epstein had not obtained a college degree, Donald brought Epstein, who was only 20 years old, and had dropped out of both Cooper Union and New York University’s Courant Institute, was brought board to teach calculus and physics.

NYPost: The jail where Jeffrey Epstein apparently hanged himself was a nest of corruption in the early ’90s, according to one of late mobster John Gotti Sr.’s top associates — who insists it’s still a place where almost anything can be bought if you have the bucks.

“If he killed himself someone had to have helped him,” said Lewis Kasman, a onetime close confidant of the Dapper Don who visited the godfather several times at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in 1992.

“There are cameras going 24/7 and they’re watching 24/7. Someone had to give [Epstein] the equipment to kill himself and he had to pay for it dearly,” said Kasman, who has kept abreast of conditions in the lockup.

Kasman added: “That facility for years had issues of corruption, with correction officers bringing in food or cellphones for wealthy people.”

The former Gambino bean counter noted that Gotti, who did time both in the jail’s 9 South and 10 South units, its most secure wings, still managed to get his favorite steak dinner sneaked in: “He had Peter Luger’s whenever he wanted.”But Kasman said the facility was “totally disgusting — worse than Guantanamo Bay.”

“There are roaches crawling all over you — in every orifice — when you sleep. The Bureau of Prisons’ answer to that is that they can’t spray. It’s toxic.”

Reps for the jail did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

This story has been updated to remove references to a purported visit to the MCC by Attorney General William Barr because the source of the information did not have direct knowledge that the visit took place.

Lewis Kasman, a former mobster and top associated of John Gotti Sr., told the Post that Barr made a secret visit to Metropolitan Correctional Center two weeks ago “about the time Epstein was found in his cell with bruises around his neck.”

“When does that happen?” Kasman asked. “The attorney general never visits jails. Something’s not right there.”

CNBC: Epstein took his own life in August while awaiting trial on charges he sexually abused girls as young as 14 and young women in New York and Florida in the early 2000s.

His death cast a spotlight on the federal Bureau of Prisons, which has been plagued by chronic staffing shortages and outbreaks of violence. The indictment unsealed against the officers shows a damning glimpse of safety lapses inside a high-security unit at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.

But the indictment also provided new details that reinforce the idea that, for all the intrigue regarding Epstein and his connections to powerful people, his death was a suicide — as the city’s medical examiner concluded — and possibly preventable.

A lawyer for Thomas, Montell Figgins, said both guards are being “scapegoated.”

The attorney general also sought to dampen conspiracy theories by people who have questioned whether Epstein really took his own life, saying the evidence proves Epstein killed himself. He added that he personally reviewed security footage that confirmed that no one entered the area where Epstein was housed on the night he died.

Epstein was placed on suicide watch after he was found July 23 on his cell floor with bruises on his neck but was taken off the heightened watch about a week before his death, meaning he was less closely monitored but still supposed to be checked on every 30 minutes. He was required to have a cellmate, but he was left with none after his cellmate was transferred out of the MCC on Aug. 9, the day before his death, the indictment said.

Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell when the guards went to deliver breakfast. One of the guards told a supervisor then that they hadn’t done their 3 a.m. or 5 a.m. rounds, according to the indictment.

“I think it was important to have a roommate in there with him and we’re looking into why that wasn’t done, and I think every indication is that was a screw-up,” Barr said. “The systems to assure that was done were not followed.”

Epstein’s death ended the possibility of a trial that would have involved prominent figures and sparked widespread anger that he wouldn’t have to answer for the allegations.

Even with his death, federal prosecutors in New York have continued to investigate the allegations against Epstein. Barr, who has vowed to aggressively investigate and bring charges against anyone who may have helped Epstein, said investigators were making good progress in the case.

“They are definitely pushing things along,” Barr said. “I’ll just say there is good progress being made, and I’m hopeful in a relatively short time there will be tangible results.”

LawAndCrime: After the federal Bureau of Prisons released confirmation of Epstein’s death, Barr reportedly surprised many officials by not allowing the Bureau to control the narrative. Instead, Barr released his own statement regarding the situation.

“I was appalled to learn that Jeffrey Epstein was found dead early this morning from an apparent suicide while in federal custody. Mr. Epstein’s death raises serious questions that must be answered. In addition to the FBI’s investigation, I have consulted with the Inspector General who is opening an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death,” he said.

As more information about the circumstances of Epstein’s suicide emerged, Barr remained hands-on in the response process. He quickly placed two prison officials on leave after learning they had broken protocol by not checking on Epstein every 30 minutes the night of his death, and immediately removed MCC warden Lamine N’Diaye from that post.

Barr continued to comment on Epstein investigation in the intervening days, telling reporters that there were “serious irregularities” at MCC the following Monday.

“I was appalled, and indeed the whole department was, and frankly angry to learn of the MCC’s failure to adequately secure this prisoner,” Barr said at a New Orleans police conference two days after Epstein’s death. “We are now learning of serious irregularities at this facility that are deeply concerning and demand a thorough investigation. The FBI and the office of inspector general are doing just that.”

“We will get to the bottom of what happened and there will be accountability,” he promised.

Barr took things a step further, announcing that he was removing the acting director of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Hugh Hurwitz from that role. Barr announced he was replacing Hurwitz with Dr. Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, who served as BOP Director from 1992 to 2003.  

TheSun: When Epstein was found hanging from a cloth tied to a bed frame on August 10, 2019, investigators turned to his cellmate Efrain "Stone" Reyes.

Reyes was transferred out of Epstein's cell the previous day before Epstein's shocking suicide in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan. rocked the Department of Justice.

Sources, including Reyes' niece, told the Daily News that Reyes was moved to a private detention center in Queens, which holds witnesses that cooperate with investigators.

Reyes was taken from the privately-run jail for meetings with investigators following the multimillionaire sex offender's death.

One of those meetings included an interview with the Attorney General himself, who was said to ask Reyes questions about staff at the detention facility he and Epstein were housed in.

"What (Reyes) believed happened. Just basically that. He told them everything. He cooperated with Barr," the source continued.

MCC officers Tova Noel and Michael Thomas both pled not guilty to sleeping on the job and falsifying records on the night of Epstein's suicide.

Montell Figgins, an attorney for Thomas, said it would be shocking if Barr did in fact directly question Reyes, given how the Justice Department is handling the case.

Reyes, who was serving time for his participation in a drug ring in public housing across the Bronx, died of Covid-19.

Narativ: Ben-Menashe and Robert Maxwell’s involvement in Iran-Contra raises new questions about Attorney General Bill Barr’s continued oversight of the Epstein case. Why? Because Barr played a significant role in the Iran-Contra cover-up.

During his first stint as A.G. under President George HW Bush, Barr sided with the President and granted clemency to Reagan administration officials who participated in the scandal. As prosecutor James J. Brosnahan characterized him, “If you want a presidential cover-up, Barr is your guy.”

George W. Bush

RadarOnline: Prince Andrew’s ex-lover Lady Victoria Hervey recently took to social media to reveal a whole slew of different conspiracy theories, including her claim that the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein knew about 9/11 before it happened, and even suggests that the attacks on 9/11 were an inside job.

According to Lady Victoria’s Instagram Story on Thursday, not only did Epstein know about the September 11th attacks on the Twin Towers before they happened, but he even allegedly bought plane tickets “as souvenirs” of the horrifying and heartbreaking national tragedy.

Victoria Harvey is listed in Epstein's black book on page 25.

Epstein recorded 1 phone number and no addresses under this name.

The painting of Bill Clinton wearing a blue dress while lounging in a chair wearing red high heels has been seen by millions, but few have seen the unsettling George W. Bush painting.

A painting showing former President George W. Bush in the Oval Office playing with paper airplanes in front of two collapsed Jenga Towers was found in Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan mansion.

In early 2006, Epstein was charged in Florida with "multiple counts of molestation and unlawful sexual activity with a minor." The New York Times reported that it was 18 months after the charges were raised that Wexner cut his ties to Epstein.

President George W. Bush appointed Wexner to serve in the Honorary Delegation to accompany him to Jerusalem for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel in May 2008.

It is worth noting that Leslie Wexner, who set up Jeffrey Epstein in various homes - including the largest private mansion in all of New York City which he gave to Epstein for the princely sum of $1 (and which already included surveillance cameras as per a 1996 article in The New York Times) was a major political contributor to the Bush family. As recently as 2015 Wexner cut a check in the amount of $500,000.00 to Jeb Bush who was a candidate in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. Wexner’s wife, Abigail, made similar contributions to the Bush family.

Epstein accusers recently filed a civil lawsuit against J.P. Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank for enabling Epstein’s sex trafficking operation, Reuters reported. The lawsuit alleges that former J.P. Morgan executive Jes Staley was an operative in Epstein’s sex trafficking, according to Bloomberg. J.P. Morgan and Deutsche Bank are fighting to dismiss the lawsuits on the grounds that they did not benefit from or participate in Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.

TheNewYorkTimes: When compliance officers at JPMorgan Chase conducted a sweep of their wealthy clients a decade ago, they recommended that the bank cut its ties to the financier Jeffrey E. Epstein because his accounts posed unacceptable legal and reputational risks.

Yet Mr. Epstein, who had been charged with sex crimes and pleaded guilty in 2008 to solicitation of prostitution, remained a JPMorgan client until 2013.

The main reason, according to six former senior executives and other bank employees familiar with the matter, was that Mary C. Erdoes, one of JPMorgan’s highest-ranking executives, intervened to keep him as a client.

Part of her rationale was that Mr. Epstein played a lucrative role recruiting new customers to JPMorgan’s private-banking division, which caters to ultrawealthy people and families, the six employees said. That made him an especially coveted client.

James E. Staley, who ran the bank’s asset-management division, which included the private bank, from 2001 to 2009, built JPMorgan’s relationship with Mr. Epstein.

Jes Staley is listed in Epstein's black book on page 79.

Epstein recorded 8 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

During that period, Mr. Epstein introduced Mr. Staley to dozens of wealthy people who became valuable customers of the private bank, a person with knowledge of the relationship told The Times.

Mr. Epstein, had loyal allies at JPMorgan. While he was incarcerated in 2008 and 2009, Mr. Staley visited him at the Palm Beach, Fla., office, where a judge had permitted Mr. Epstein to spend time during his sentence.

In 2009, Mr. Staley was promoted to lead JPMorgan’s investment bank. His successor as head of the asset-management business was Ms. Erdoes, regarded by her colleagues as an expert at wooing wealthy customers.

That December, a hedge fund run by Bernard L. Madoff was revealed to be a multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme. JPMorgan had served as Mr. Madoff’s primary bank for more than two decades, a role that prosecutors later said had enabled him to “launder billions of dollars.”

Officials at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ordered JPMorgan to review its client roster to make sure that customers were not violating laws or depositing tainted funds at the bank, according to four of the former bank employees.

Presented with the compliance officers’ recommendation that Mr. Epstein be kicked out of the bank, Ms. Erdoes protested that he was a valuable client, according to the six former employees, some of whom were senior executives with direct knowledge of the events. Losing Mr. Epstein would mean potentially losing connections to other lucrative clients, she warned.

Four of the former employees said that they were under the impression Ms. Erdoes was acting in the interests of Mr. Staley, who maintained a strong relationship with Mr. Epstein.

The dispute over whether to jettison Mr. Epstein grew so heated that it became widely known in the bank’s executive suites, three of the former employees said.

Ms. Erdoes ultimately prevailed. A compliance officer left the bank after losing the battle, the three employees said.

In January 2013, regulators were unhappy with JPMorgan’s progress in weeding out potentially bad actors, and the comptroller of the currency’s office publicly ordered the bank to improve its processes for detecting money laundering and rigorously scrutinizing customers.

Later that year, Mr. Staley left JPMorgan and joined a hedge fund. Around that time, JPMorgan cut its ties to Mr. Epstein.

After being expelled by JPMorgan, Mr. Epstein moved his business to Deutsche Bank, where he opened dozens of accounts. Compliance officers at the German bank raised concerns about Mr. Epstein and transactions that they regarded as suspicious, and they tried to get the bank to end its relationship with him. Executives overruled their concerns.

Deutsche Bank stopped doing business with Mr. Epstein in June 2019.

Ms. Erdoes, who joined JPMorgan in 1996, remains in charge of the asset-management division, which has more than $2 trillion in assets. She also has a seat on JPMorgan’s powerful operating committee.

Time: Barclays chief executive James Staley is one of the few high profile executives to lose their job due to links with the late sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein. Staley announced his departure from the bank Monday, following an investigation.

Barclays said in its statement that “the investigation makes no findings that Mr. Staley saw, or was aware of, any of Mr. Epstein’s alleged crimes,” but said “the board is disappointed at this outcome. Mr Staley has run the Barclays Group successfully since December 2015 with real commitment and skill.”

TheHill: The U.S. Virgin Islands filed a lawsuit against banking giant JPMorgan Chase, accusing the Wall Street corporation of turning a “blind eye” toward the conduct of the late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George said in a complaint filed in a Manhattan District Court that JPMorgan Chase facilitated the trafficking of minors for sexual abuse at the hands of Epstein.

The lawsuit was filed in a Manhattan District Court by Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George who said the bank of knowingly “provided and pulled the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.”

“Upon information and belief, JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint,”

The attorney general said JPMorgan Chase was “indispensable to the operation and concealment of the Epstein trafficking enterprise.”

TheDailyBeast: At the end of December, U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan over the bank’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. She was terminated days later.

“Between 2008 and 2012, Staley exchanged approximately 1,200 emails with Epstein from his JP Morgan email account,” states a newly-unredacted portion of the filing. “These communications show a close personal relationship and ‘profound’ friendship between the two men and even suggest that Staley may have been involved in Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation. They also reveal that Staley corresponded with Epstein while Epstein was incarcerated and visited Epstein’s Virgin Islands residence on multiple occasions.”

In 2021, the Financial Times reported that U.S. financial regulators had examined Epstein and Staley’s emails, some of which included the cryptic words “snow white.” At the time, a lawyer for Staley told the press, “We wish to make it expressly clear that our client had no involvement in any of the alleged crimes committed by Mr. Epstein, and code words were never used by Mr. Staley in any communications with Mr. Epstein, ever.”

The lawsuit alleges that “Epstein paid more than $600,0000 to Jane Doe 1, a woman who—according to news reports contained in JP Morgan’s due diligence reports—Epstein purchased at the age of 14.”

In the lawsuit, Epstein and his inner circle also are accused of withdrawing large sums of cash and making 95 foreign remittances with no known payee. READ MORE: 3-Count Felon, JPMorgan Chase, Caught Laundering More Dirty Money

Charlie Rose

Charlie Rose has been accused by 34 women of sexual misconduct spanning three decades.

Charlie Rose is listed in Epstein's black book on page 47.

Epstein recorded 2 phone numbers and 1 address under this name.

Epstein made recommendations for Rose, giving him the names and phone numbers of five women he thought the anchor should hire as assistants.

One woman was described as “world’s most perfect assistant she used to work for Harvey Weinstein he’s lucky if he can get her.”

Rose hired three of the women Epstein recommended.

One of the women said she didn’t know Epstein recommended her. “I was being offered up for abuse,” said the woman, who was later one of 34 other women to accuse Rose of sexual harassment.

Rose, who also worked as a journalist and host for CBS News, was suspended indefinitely in 2017 after the allegations were made public. In a statement, Rose said, “I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior.” He was later fired.

Now 77, Rose remains out of work in the media world.

Mark Middleton

Mark Middleton, the presidential advisor who introduced Jeffrey Epstein to Bill Clinton, was found dead by hanging using a cheap extension cord … with a gunshot wound to his chest. His death was deemed a suicide. A few months prior, a woman linked to Middleton was found dead using a similar extension cord. There’s something sinister happening here.

In 1994, the Clinton campaign asked Middleton to seek out funds from Les Wexner, and his money manager Jeffrey Epstein.

The Daily Mail reported it learned through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that Epstein visited the Clinton White House at least 17 times. The Daily Mail reported Middleton admitted Epstein into the White House on seven of those 17 known visits.

Middleton’s family told authorities he had been depressed, but that Middleton did not leave a suicide note.

Several individuals close to Epstein also died in mysterious circumstances. For instance, in 2020, Hollywood producer Steve Bing (who was close with Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton) died after falling off the 27th floor of his apartment building. While the official cause of death is “suicide,” some claim that he was killed in “Russian-mafia style” because he knew too much.

Jean-Luc Brunel – the fashion agent who procured over 1,000 girls for Epstein – was found dead in his jail cell. Again, the official cause of death has been deemed suicide.

On May 7th, 2022, Middleton died suddenly at age 59. He was found hanging from a tree with a cheap Dollar Store-type extension cord around his neck and a gunshot wound to his chest. According to authorities, Middleton trespassed on Heifer Ranch (about 30 miles from his house) and used a table to construct makeshift gallows.

Mark Middleton is listed in Epstein's black book on page 76.

Epstein recorded 11 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

A year before his suspected suicide, Epstein boasted of his ties to powerful Saudi leaders, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the New York Times reported.

Epstein's address book had listings for a “Saud, Prince Solman” - widely believed to be MBS’s father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz - and MBS’s cousin and former Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.

Bandar Prince is listed in Epstein's black book on page 69.

Epstein recorded 1 phone number and 1 address under this name.

Among the Saudi entries in Epstein’s address book – maintained by his staff, stolen by his butler, and then seized by the FBI – was Prince Salman of the ruling Saud dynasty. Two US numbers were listed: one with a Washington, DC area code, and another corresponding to northern Virginia, just outside the capital.

Solman is listed in Epstein's black book on page 49.

Epstein recorded 2 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

It is likely in reference to the current King Salman, who at the time of the butler’s tenure (2004-05) was a prince. Salman’s son, the current de facto ruler Mohammed bin Salman, was a teenager at the time.

Mohammed Jameel is listed in Epstein's black book on page 29.

Epstein recorded 2 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

However, the Saudi connection appears to have transcended generations.

The sudden rise of MBS, who is seen as Saudi Arabia's de-facto ruler, has been marked by controversy - most notably the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul.

The Daily Beast reported in July that the FBI found an expired Austrian passport for Epstein - along with piles of cash and dozens of diamonds - in a safe at his Manhattan mansion.

The expired passport had Epstein's photo, a fake name and Saudi address.

Before Jeffrey Epstein met Donald Trump, 1987, Epstein, though a Jew and not allowed in Saudi Arabia under any normal legal circumstances according to law, lived in that country. Epstein was even issued a Saudi passport under a non-Jewish name but with Epstein’s photo.

Insider reported that Jeffrey Epstein's private jet was spotted over the Arabian Peninsula on the eve of Election Day 2016.

Two people of note were in Riyadh at roughly the same time.

  • The first person is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, who at the time served as the kingdom's Minister of Defense and Second Deputy Prime Minister. On November 8, the state-owned Saudi Press Agency reported that bin Salman, also known as MBS, and his father, the Saudi king, bestowed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., with the Order of King Abdulaziz, a civilian award for distinguished service to Saudi Arabia.
  • The second person is Jeff Bezos, the billionaire co-founder and CEO of Amazon. On November 9, the day Epstein's jet returned to Paris, MBS held an unrelated meeting with Bezos, several Amazon executives, and two Saudi ministers.

Wikipedia: Joseph Francis Dunford Jr.(born December 23, 1955) is a retired United States Marine Corps four-star general, who served as the 19th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from October 1, 2015, until September 30, 2019.

As of February 10, 2020, Dunford joined the board of directors at Lockheed Martin, serving on the Classified Business and Security Committee and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. He is also on the board of a New York private equity firm, following a path taken by other prominent retired 4-star officers, such as David Petraeus (who went to work for the global investment firm KKR) and Ray Odierno (who became a senior advisor at JPMorgan Chase). In May 2022, he joined the board of directors at Satellogic, an Argentine satellite company.

One noteworthy attribute that Epstein and his apparent friend MBS share is a history of being accused of blackmail. In January, Bezos' chief of security accused the Saudi kingdom of gaining unauthorized access to Bezos' personal messages and photos. According to The Daily Beast, the Saudis planned to blackmail Bezos, who purchased The Washington Post in 2013, as punishment for his paper's aggressive coverage of their own columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, whom Saudi agents assassinated in Istanbul.

Doug Band 

NYPost: Former President Bill Clinton did visit deep-pocketed perv Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “Pedophile Island” — despite his camp’s insistence to the contrary, a onetime top advisor says in a blistering new tell-all.

Clinton made the trip in January 2003, one of dozens of times he flew aboard Epstein’s private jet, the “Lolita Express,” former close aide Doug Band claimed in a wide-ranging interview with Vanity Fair.

Band — who rose from Bubba’s body man during his second term in office to the most trusted adviser of his post-presidential life — told the mag that he tried for years to keep Epstein at a distance, but that Clinton just couldn’t stay away.

Clinton receiving a neck massage from Chauntae Davies, who later accused Epstein of rape. Clinton has not been accused of any sexual misconduct regarding Epstein’s victims.

Band also recalled for the Vanity Fair piece that Epstein made outlandish boasts during the humanitarian trip, including that he invented the concept of the derivatives trading market.

Band said he encouraged Clinton to sever ties with Epstein after that, but that in early 2003, the former president visited Epstein’s private Caribbean retreat, Little St. James — also known as “Pedophile Island.”

In an unusual move given their close working relationship at the time, Band said he declined to join Clinton on the trip.

The Clinton camp insisted to Vanity Fair that the former president had never set foot on the island and provided “detailed travelogue entries of the period in question that did not contain a visit,” the mag said.

Chelsea Clinton, the former president’s only child, maintained a friendship with Maxwell — inviting Maxwell to her 2010 wedding — long after Epstein’s misdeeds were public knowledge, in what Band characterized as a grab at high-society lifestyle.

Bill Richardson 

Bill Richardson is listed in Epstein's black book on page 91.

Epstein recorded 4 phone numbers and no addresses under this name.

NYPost:  Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson has been accused in a newly unsealed lawsuit of covering up a pay-to-play scheme he allegedly used to fund “sexual services and sexual favors” while serving as his state’s chief executive, a report said.

In 2008, Richardson was accused in a suit of running a kickback scheme to enrich himself — and fund a debauched lifestyle — while defrauding New Mexico taxpayers, a local NBC affiliate reported.

“Richardson obtained money for himself; money for his campaigns; money for his political organizations; lavish meals, entertainment, and travel; wine and liquor, sexual services and sexual favors,” the suit states, according to the news station.

Federal prosecutors probed the allegations in 2009, but Richardson and his associates were not indicted, the report said.

In a new suit filed in May, but unsealed last week, Richardson, 72, is accused of using his office to cover up the scheme and thwart the investigation, the Daily Mail reported.

The suit, filed by two New Mexico residents under the Fraud Against Taxpayers Act, claims Richardson installed “operatives” in the state government to cover up the scheme, according to the Mail.

“To date, upon information and belief, Bill Richardson has managed to evade being deposed under oath about his graft,” the suit states.

“As Governor, Bill Richardson controlled the hiring of all state employees in the executive branch. He used his control to carry out corruption, and to cover it up,” it adds.

Maddy Mahony, a spokesperson for Richardson, said in a statement that the newly unsealed suit was completely unfounded.

Richardson has drawn headlines in recent months after it was revealed Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre said she was directed to have sex with him while being trafficked by the multimillionaire pedophile and alleged cohort Ghislaine Maxwell.

Richardson has denied having sex with Giuffre.

Larry Summers

By Zachary D. Carter, HuffPost

series of stories detailed the long, disquieting relationship between alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and Larry Summers, a prominent economist, hedge fund adviser, former Clinton and Obama administration official and one-time president of Harvard University.

While at Harvard, Summers wooed Epstein as a donor, and apparently was successfully counter-wooed into Epstein’s social circle. Epstein gave $9 million to Harvard over the years, beginning with a $6.5 million donation in 2003. The two men remained friends for years, long after Summers had been forced out of his university perch. In 2011, about eight months after Epstein was released from prison and classified as a class-three sex offender for soliciting an underaged prostitute, Summers attended a party at Epstein’s palatial Manhattan mansion, where he was photographed grinning alongside Epstein, billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates and James E. Staley, a former JPMorgan Chase executive.

Throughout the past year, as Epstein’s second criminal trial dragged this shameful past back into public view, Summers has been conspicuously close-mouthed about what he knew and when he knew it. There are, after all, few flattering things to be said about one’s connection to an international sex criminal. Epstein’s first arrest was in 2006. His prosecution was amply covered by Florida newspapers and national outlets including The New York Times. One of his defense attorneys was Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz, whom Summers knew well. And shortly after Summers resigned as Harvard’s president (he remained on the economics faculty), the school’s own newspaper reported that the university had decided against returning Epstein’s gift. Conversations were underway about what to do about the Epstein problem.

All of which raises two distinct possibilities: Either Summers was ignorant of Epstein’s wrongdoing, itself an act of staggering incompetence, or he knew what had transpired and simply didn’t care. Is Larry Summers a fool or an enabler?

Joe Biden seems to be satisfied with whatever the answer to that question might be. On Thursday, Bloomberg News reported what had been rumored for weeks: Summers has been advising Biden on economic recovery strategies for the ongoing coronavirus collapse.

This prompted immediate outrage from the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, where Summers is loathed for, well, just about everything he has ever said or done. But Summers isn’t just a bad choice for a Democratic nominee trying to win over reluctant progressives. There are plenty of neoliberal economists out there. But none of them are nearly as toxic as Summers. He is someone you only turn to if you don’t give an iota about your own reputation.

Over the past three decades, Summers has amassed a policy record of almost unrivaled social ruin. As a Clinton Treasury official in the early 1990s, Summers advocated for the rapid privatization of Soviet assets after the fall of the U.S.S.R. ― a disastrous policy that allowed a few oligarchs to seize control of the country and led to the enthronement of Vladimir Putin. Summers’ protege in that debacle — another Harvard man, economist Andrei Shleifer — was eventually sued by the U.S. Department of Justice for allegedly abusing his position to defraud both the American and Russian governments. Harvard paid $26.5 million to dismiss the charges in 2005, ten years after Summers had blurbed Shleifer’s book, ”Privatizing Russia”: “The authors did remarkable things in Russia, and now they have written a remarkable book.”

The “tawdry Shleifer affair,” as it became known around Harvard, was instrumental in spurring Summers’ downfall as Harvard president. But the straw that broke the camel’s back was a speech Summers gave in which he argued that women are biologically predisposed to mediocrity in the sciences. Two years after Summers was forced to resign as university president, the global economy collapsed ― led to disaster by a slate of financial deregulation Summers had helped force through during his tenure as Clinton’s Treasury Secretary.

But while the 2008 crash ravaged Summers’ intellectual reputation, his political prowess remained strong enough to land him a job as chair of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council, where he overruled other experts and undershot the size of the economic stimulus package ― a decision that ultimately allowed the unemployment rate to hit 9.8%.

Summers also appeared in the “Lolita Express” flight logs.

Tom Pritzker 

Thomas Pritzker is a member of one of the wealthiest families in the United States, known for owning the Hyatt hotel chain and Royal Caribbean cruise company. He is one of eleven billionaire heirs of the Pritzker family and is CEO of the Pritzker Organization and executive chairman of Hyatt.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot is flanked by Penny and Tom Pritzker

Almost everyone knows by now that “John Doe” who has been fighting to keep his name from being released is Thomas Pritzer. In 2019 Virginia Giuffre made it clear she had “no sympathy” for Pritzker, then known as the anonymous man objecting to the release on the basis it could harm his privacy and reputation.

ChicagoTribune: On the same day Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed sweeping anti-harassment legislation, another Pritzker was among the wealthy business and world leaders mentioned in newly unsealed court records tied to alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein in New York. That was Friday. Today, a spokeswoman for the governor said he wasn’t aware his cousin Tom Pritzker knew Epstein.

Later Friday, court documents unsealed in New York painted what was described as a chilling sex trafficking operation by millionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein, who a day later was found dead of an apparent suicide in a Manhattan jail cell. Those documents mentioned the names of some prominent politicians and businessmen, including Hyatt hotels magnate Tom Pritzker, 69. All involved have denied wrongdoing.

Thomas Pritzker is listed in Epstein's black book on page 45.

Epstein recorded 13 phone numbers and 2 addresses under this name.

KirbySommers: Pritzer was Hillary Clinton's second biggest donor, giving her campaign $16.6 million in 2016.

He was known to frequently dine with Epstein—one of these dinners, which was attended by Woody Allen, was referenced in an internal MIT email.

Penny Sue Pritzker is an American billionaire businesswoman who served as the 38th United States secretary of commerce in the Obama administration from 2013 to 2017.

Marvin Minsky

TheVerge: Virginia Roberts Giuffre testified that she was forced to have sex with MIT professor Marvin Minsky, as revealed in a newly unsealed deposition.

Minsky, who died in 2016, was known as an associate of Epstein, but this is the first direct accusation implicating the AI pioneer in Epstein’s broader sex trafficking network. The deposition also names Prince Andrew of Britain and former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, among others.

In the deposition, Giuffre says she was directed to have sex with Minsky when he visited Epstein’s compound in the US Virgin Islands.

A separate witness lent credence to Giuffre’s account, testifying that she and Minsky had taken a private plane from Teterboro to Santa Fe and Palm Beach in March 2001. Epstein, Maxwell, chef Adam Perry Lang, and shipping heir Henry Jarecki were also passengers on the flight, according to the deposition. At the time of the flight, Giuffre was 17; Minsky was 73.

A pivotal member of MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Lab, Marvin Minsky pioneered early self-training algorithms, most notably in his 1969 book Perceptrons. He also developed the first head-mounted display, a precursor to modern VR and augmented reality systems.

Minsky was one of a number of prominent scientists with ties to Jeffrey Epstein, who often called himself a “science philanthropist” and donated to research projects and academic institutions. Many of those scientists were affiliated with Harvard, including physicist Lawrence Krauss, geneticist George Church, and cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker. Minsky’s affiliation with Epstein went particularly deep, including organizing a two-day symposium on artificial intelligence at Epstein’s private island in 2002, as reported by Slate. In 2012, the Jeffrey Epstein Foundation issued a press release touting another conference organized by Minsky on the island in December 2011.

BostonMagazine: Richard Stallman, a MacArthur genius grant recipient, Internet Hall of Fame inductee, and well-known computer scientist at MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, has resigned from his post after defending MIT’s ever-expanding web of Jeffrey Epstein connections.

Specifically, Stallman leapt to the defense of the late Marvin Minsky, co-founder of MIT’s AI Laboratory. 

A Medium post written by an MIT alum last week revealed that Stallman replied to a female student’s email about an anti-Epstein protest with a long message in which he opts to defend Minsky in an odd and pretty sickening way—by arguing that sex with a child isn’t always assault.

Legally, sex between a 73-year-old and a 17-year-old constitutes statutory rape.

After the email chain came to light, Stallman wrote an email to the MIT community announcing his resignation. “I am doing this due to pressure on MIT and me over a series of misunderstandings and mischaracterizations,” he wrote.

Stillman joins a list of MIT community members who have resigned over connections to Epstein and his donations to the university. The director of the MIT Media Lab, Joi Ito, resigned after a bombshell New Yorker story revealed the lengths the Media Lab went to to intentionally conceal its connections to Epstein. Two other members of the Media Lab resigned earlier, citing guilty consciences over the university’s Epstein ties.

Peter Listerman

LawAndCrime: Back in 2016, the New York Post ran a story alleging that convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had moved beyond having his assistants “troll local high schools” for girls, and instead had begun “importing his playmates from Russia.”

One of the men who allegedly “procured” such girls for Epstein and other affluent men is Peter Listerman, was reportedly “running scared” when reporters approached him earlier this month at a film festival asking questions about his ties to Epstein, according to a report from the Daily Beast Monday.

According to the report, Listerman’s reputation for “matchmaking,” in which he would connect rich men to young models, has been notorious for decades, citing multiple interviews wherein Listerman brags about the number of women he’s hooked up with rich men.

But when reporters refused to relent about his supposed role in exploiting teen models, Listerman refused to respond, eventually blocking the Daily Beast reporter from his Instagram and Facebook pages. But the online news outlet did catch up with model Krista Goncharova, who provided further details regarding Listerman’s reputation and behavior, referring to him as “the world famous seller of young models to oligarchs.”

Salon: Lawrence Krauss: A world-renowned cosmologist who authored "A Universe From Nothing" and ran the Origins Project formerly at Arizona State University, Krauss was among the most academically accomplished of the New Atheists. In 2018, though, he was dismissed from his job as director of the Origins Project after an investigation found that he had violated the sexual harassment policy of the university "by groping a woman's breast while on an ASU-funded trip in late 2016." He has also repeatedly and vigorously defended his onetime friend Jeffrey Epstein, the child sex trafficker, who "donated $250,000 to the Origins Project over a seven-year span." According to a 2011 Daily Beast article, Krauss claimed, "I don't feel tarnished in any way by my relationship with Jeffrey; I feel raised by it," adding that he didn't believe the "beautiful women and young women" surrounding Epstein were underage. (Plenty of other people have said it was impossible not to realize that, and Krauss himself has acknowledged that Epstein favored "women ages 19 to 23," which surely should have been a red flag.) After a 2018 BuzzFeed article detailing some of the sexual harassment allegations against Krauss was published, a flood of further accusations emerged online, some of which I catalogued here.

Steven Pinker: To many of us early on, Pinker seemed to genuinely care about maintaining his intellectual integrity. But, once again, high expectations only meant a harder crash. Consider that Pinker has claimed that rape is often "over-reported." To support this, he cites right-wingers like Christina Hoff Sommers and Heather MacDonaldas primary sources. Over the past few years, he has become unhealthily fixated on "political correctness," social justice and "wokeness," and participated in the 2017 "Unsafe Space Tour" of college campuses, organized by the right-libertarian magazine Spiked. It also came out, much to Pinker's chagrin, that he'd assisted the legal defense of sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, even appearing in photographs with Epstein taken after the latter was convicted of sex crimes in 2008. Here's a picture of Pinker with Dawkins (and fellow New Atheist Daniel Dennett) flying to a TED Conference with Epstein. Pinker's response? It's hard to make this up: despite being a vociferous "opponent" of censorship — bad ideas must be exposed to the light! Free speech must never be hindered! — Pinker blocked half of Twitter to stop people from mentioning his past links to this rapist and pedophile. Of course this backfired, drawing even more attention to the issue, a phenomenon that I call the "Pinker-Epstein Effect" (which is nearly identical to the Streisand Effect but specific to, well, Pinker and Epstein). Although Pinker was never as prominently connected to "New Atheism" as the others, his influence within the movement, partly because of his advocacy for secularism, is undeniable.

Underage Sex Ring Covered Up 

One of the main storylines of the Jeffrey Epstein criminal rampage is how the media whitewashed his crimes and behavior for so long. Some of the most powerful names in the media during the period he was operating were not only known to Epstein, but they considered him a friend.

Jeffrey Epstein was a multi millionaire who had political and business ties to some of the most rich and powerful people in the world. From businessmen to politicians at the highest levels, Epstein broke bread with them all. Yet for years the media and the rest of high society looked the other way and ignored his behavior as multiple women came forward with allegations of abuse. Even after he was convicted and subsequently received a sweetheart deal those same so called elites welcomed him back with open arms. Now after his death and the arrest of Maxwell, the real story is starting to come together and the curtain has begun to be drawn back and what it has revealed is truly disturbing.

Independent: ABC News anchor Amy Robach, in a leaked video, bitterly complained: “I’ve had the story for three years. I’ve had this interview with [Epstein accuser] Virginia Roberts. We would not put it on the air.”

In the video, she says she was threatened by the UK’s royal family, who threatened to cut off their ability to cover their family if Prince Andrew’s secrets came out. And other networks have since corroborated that, in 2015, Epstein’s lawyers contacted them and asked them to keep the story from reaching the news.

CBSNews: Annie Farmer told jurors that she accepted an invitation to Epstein's New Mexico ranch in 1996 with the hopes that Maxwell and the financier would help her with academic endeavors. She said Maxwell's presence made her believe that she would be safe with Epstein. Instead, Farmer said Maxwell massaged her upper breast and Epstein climbed into bed with her without her permission.

Farmer’s story was cut from Vanity Fair writer Vicky Ward’s 2003 profile of Epstein. Ward has claimed editor Graydon Carter bowed to pressure from Epstein, but Carter says Ward’s sourcing at the time didn’t meet the magazine’s legal standards.

EW: Clinton did come out saying, after [Epstein's] death even, that he had never been on any of his properties, and we did find that to be untrue based on our reporting.

While there are undeniable links between Trump and Epstein, the relationship between Bill Clinton and Epstein is much more involved. Flight records show that Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane at least 26 times to about a dozen international locations. Flight logs did not list any secret service detail for five flights. Epstein was also involved in some of Clinton’s projects: He was a heavy donator of the Clinton Foundation. According to attorney Gerald B. Lefcourt, Epstein was also “part of the original group that conceived of the Clinton Global Initiative”.

Doug Bands (Office of William J. Clinton) is listed in Epstein's black book on page 4.

Epstein recorded 5 phone numbers and 3 addresses under this name.

In addition to his work launching the Clinton Global Iniative, Epstein also donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2006 through his own personal charity, according to the Daily Beast. That donation came after Epstein developed a close personal relationship with Bill Clinton during a month-long trip to Africa in 2002.

Trump's labor secretary Alex Acosta played an important role in ending the investigation against Epstein. In 2008, as a U.S. attorney in South Florida, Acosta brokered a plea agreement with Epstein that allowed him to escape serious punishment for earlier allegations of sexual misconduct. READ MORE: Edward Snowden warns ‘Julian Assange could be next' after John McAfee and Epstein's ‘suicides'

Trump-Acosta's Record on Sex Trafficking

Acosta proposed that the Labor Department cut 80 percent of the funding to a program dedicated to combating human trafficking, forced labor, and child labor. The cuts, proposed for the 2020 fiscal year, would slash the budget of the International Labor Affairs Bureau, which prepares reports on child labor and trafficking, but also provides funding to nongovernmental groups in foreign countries working toward nipping child labor and sex trafficking at the bud. At his Wednesday press conference, when asked about the proposed cuts, Acosta defended them by stating that the money went to grants “for foreign countries.”

At the same time, and perhaps more cruel still, the Department of Labor decided to place a moratorium on special visa certifications offered by the agency to human trafficking and extreme labor-abuse victims. Since 2015, the Department of Labor has directly granted visa certifications, attesting to a victim’s allegations and their willingness to comply with law enforcement cases against their traffickers and abusive employers.

As of July 1, victims will have to appeal to a separate criminal law enforcement agency, like the FBI, to validate their claims before the Labor Department will agree to the certification. Given federal and state law enforcement’s tendency to treat sex trafficking victims, as well as consensual sex workers, as criminals themselves, the suggestion that these agencies are best equipped to verify victims’ claims is troubling. (In discussions of trafficking, it’s always worth noting the purported prosecution of sex traffickers has, time and time again, been used to ensnare consensual sex workers and their communities, rendering these workers ever more vulnerable to violence and trafficking.)

Furthermore, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services last year began deporting individuals who have been denied trafficking visas. This, together with the Labor Department’s new policy, risks a chilling effect on those undocumented immigrants who would speak out against their traffickers.

“Don’t we want criminal prosecutors to be consulted whenever someone says that they are a victim of trafficking?” Acosta replied on Wednesday, when pressed on his department’s new, harsher visa policy. His words betrayed, once again, a profound disregard for the lives of victims. When someone says they are a victim of trafficking, the most important first step should be to provide that person the means and the security to escape their situation. Exposure to higher risks of deportation and criminalization, as the new Department of Labor policy ensures, are not the responses trafficking victims need. (The Intercept)

Pastor Bill Losasso, Founder and President of the Florida Dream Center told 10News the potential budget cuts are "disgusting."

Few people on earth are so exploited as children trafficked into the sex trade. And now they are being exploited again, by President Donald Trump.

“My administration is putting unprecedented pressure on traffickers at home and abroad,” Trump declared in January at a White House meeting on trafficking. “My administration is fighting these monsters, persecuting and prosecuting them, and locking them away for a very, very long time. We’ve had a tremendous track record — the best track record in a long time.”

I’ve been reporting about human trafficking all over the world since the 1990s, so part of me is thrilled that a president is highlighting this issue. Ivanka Trump has made it a signature issue, and she organized the White House event. The president used the occasion to announce a new White House position to oversee anti-trafficking efforts, and all this high-level attention could be very helpful.

Yet it’s increasingly clear that this is less about protecting children and more about exalting Trump, whose administration is actually prosecuting fewer traffickers and making it harder for some trafficking survivors to get help. As a result, major anti-trafficking organizations boycotted the White House session.

“Over the last three years we have watched with horror as the administration has dismantled protections for trafficking survivors,” said Martina Vandenberg, the president of the Human Trafficking Legal Center in Washington, who stayed away.

“Using human trafficking for pernicious political purposes is new,” she added. “It is a Trump administration invention.”

The Human Trafficking Legal Center reports only 146 federal trafficking indictments in 2019, down from 204 in the last year of the Obama administration.

A whistleblower complaint alleges the administration diverted anti-trafficking money from well-respected nonprofits to less-effective organizations like “Hookers for Jesus.”

Rachel Lloyd, who was trafficked into the sex trade as a teenager, now runs an excellent program in New York City called the Girls Educational and Mentoring Service, or GEMS, which helps girls who have been trafficked. Lloyd said that when she realized the administration was only engaged in a PR effort, she turned down a position on an administration advisory panel and declined a $10,000 donation from Ivanka Trump for GEMS.

“Why would we give them cover and validation?” asked Lloyd, whose memoir, “Girls Like Us,” is one of the best books on trafficking.

Human trafficking is one of the pre-eminent moral challenges of our time. The International Labor Organization estimates that worldwide, some 10 million children exist in forms of modern slavery. In Cambodia, I once saw terrified young girls being sold for their virginity; in Pakistan, I saw a brothel owner determined to kill a girl who had escaped.

Trump’s exploitation of trafficking victims for his own purposes is particularly sad because this is a rare issue where Democrats and Republicans have worked productively together: Evangelical Christians and liberal feminists both have done heroic work for 20 years. Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., has done outstanding work on this issue, as has Gloria Steinem.

It’s useful for a president to speak up about trafficking, to keep the issue on the agenda. But Trump sensationalizes in lurid terms: “Women are tied up, they’re bound, duct tape put around their faces,” he has said. It’s usually more complicated than that, and survivors are irritated that Trump cites trafficking as a reason to build his border wall.

“This is an issue that doesn’t need overdramatizing,” said Lloyd, who was nearly killed by her pimp. “It’s bad enough. You don’t need to make it worse.”

Shaquana Blount, who was trafficked at age 14 in New York and is now 30, put it this way: “The president’s sensationalization of sex trafficking is a spit in the face to myself and many survivors, as his narrative does not fit ours. It is his own.”

And in 2011 and again in 2013, Christopher Rice helped to coordinate hunger strikes in protest of inhuman and degrading conditions of confinement in California's state run prison system.The hunger strikes also spurred successful litigation that would ultimately end the use of long-term solitary confinement in California.
