Jeffrey Epstein

Contents

Public life

An American billionaire financier and sex offender. He worked at Bear Stearns early in his career and then formed his own firm, J. Epstein & Co. In 2008, Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, for which he served 13 months in a county jail and house arrest. Epstein had also been accused of financial crimes and was known for having a mysterious persona.[3][4]

The source of Epstein's wealth is also a topic of debate. It is possible that much of it came from defrauding investors in the Towers Financial Corporation, which was seemingly a Ponzi scheme.[5]

Role in #Pizzagate

Jeffrey Epstein is a level 3 registered sex offender and alleged child trafficker. He has pled guilty to criminal charges for solicitation of prostitution from a minor in Palm Beach, Florida. Although he was sued numerous times by victims in civil trials, Epstein has never faced criminal charges for engaging in and soliciting sex with minors on his personal aircraft (aka "Lolita Express") or his Caribbean island, Little St James, colloquially known as "Orgy Island." Victims have argued that the island is a hub for housing minors who are bought from trafficking rings and abused by its elite visitors.[6]

He maintains very close connections with some of the most elite men and women in the world, some of which include Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, Robert Maxwell, Prince Andrew, and the late Michael Jackson. [7] Bill Clinton in particular has flown on Epstein's private aircraft, the "Lolita Express" 26 times.

Epstein has said that he was founder of the Clinton Global Initiative, part of the Clinton Foundation.[8][Archived Version] It was revealed during the Swiss Leaks scandal that Epstein has also given money to the Clinton Foundation, even giving at least $25,000 one year after his arrest.[9][Archived Version]

He was in a relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell during the time in which he was engaging in sexual relations with underage girls. Epstein's victims claimed Maxwell acted as a "madam" to assist in procuring victims on Epstein's behalf. Maxwell maintains a close friendship with the Clintons, even after Epstein's arrest, even being invited to Chelsea's wedding. Maxwell's current initiative, The TerraMar Project, provides millions of dollars in funding to the Clinton Foundation.[10][Archived Version]

Jeffrey Epstein is also referred to in the Podesta emails, if briefly, in relation to an email from Tina Flournoy writing to tell John Podesta of a tweet from Katherine Miller regarding a news article about Jeffrey Epstein.[11] The article referenced is Buzzfeed's "Plenty Of Innuendo, But No Hard Evidence Of New Clinton Sex Scandal" by Ken Bensinger. It is one of the few (and perhaps only) that attempts to clear Bill Clinton of any wrongdoing in relation to Epstein. Given that neither Flournoy, nor Katherine Miller's tweet, said whether the article was good or bad for the Clintons, one might assume that the Clinton team knew of it in advance and perhaps even collaborated in its construction, as they had with other news organizations as evidenced in other Podesta emails. Nevertheless, based on his response, Podesta seemed pleased with it.

Solicitation of Prostitution from a Minor and the Palm Beach Trial

Generally Accepted Facts from Wikipedia

In March 2005, a woman contacted Palm Beach police and alleged her 14-year-old daughter had been taken to Jeffrey Epstein's mansion by an older girl and paid $300 after stripping and massaging him. She had undressed, but left the encounter wearing her underwear.

Police started an 11-month undercover investigation of Epstein, followed by a search of his home. Subsequently, they alleged that Epstein had paid several escorts to perform sexual acts on him. Interviews with five alleged victims and seventeen witnesses under oath, a high-school transcript and other items they found in Epstein's trash and home allegedly showed that some girls were under 18. A search of Epstein's home found large numbers of photos of girls throughout the house, some of whom had been interviewed earlier by the police. Papers filed in 2006 alleged that Epstein installed concealed cameras in numerous places on his property to record sexual activity with underage girls by prominent people for criminal purposes such as blackmail.

Epstein had set up a system of young women recruiting other women for his massage services. Two housekeepers stated to the police that Epstein would receive "massages" every day whenever he stayed in Palm Beach. In May 2006, Palm Beach police filed a probable cause affidavit saying that Epstein should be charged with four counts of unlawful sex with minors and one molestation count. His team of lawyers included Gerald Lefcourt, Alan Dershowitz and later Ken Starr. Epstein passed a lie detector test in which he was asked whether he knew of the underage status of the girls—although lie detector tests are generally not admissible in a court of law.

Instead of following police recommendation, the prosecutors considered the evidence weak and presented it to a grand jury. Former chief of Palm Beach police Michael Reiter later wrote to State Attorney Barry Krischer to complain of the state's "highly unusual" conduct and asked him to remove himself from the case. The grand jury returned only a single charge of felony solicitation of prostitution, to which Epstein pleaded not guilty in August 2006.

Irregularities within the Legal Proceedings

Violation of the Criminal Victims Rights Act

Prosecutors signed a plea agreement in secret with Epstein without notifying his victims. This is a violation of the Criminal Victims Rights Act ("CVRA"). The CVRA enumerates the rights afforded to victims in federal criminal cases. The Act grants victims eight rights.[12][Archived Version] The specific right relevant in this case is the following: 4. The right to be reasonably heard at any public proceeding in the district court involving release, plea, sentencing, or any parole proceeding. [Emphasis Added] The statute's definition of "Crime Victim" is a person directly and proximately harmed as a result of the commission of a Federal offense...[13][Archived Version]

A Alan Dershowitz
Epstein Attorney, Alan Dershowitz
Journalist and Attorney Rachel Stockman, of ABC Chief Legal Correspondent Dan Abram's LawNewz, discussed the matter:[Archived Version]
In my opinion, the young women make it clear from a series of documents obtained through discovery that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Southern Florida violated the very spirit of the federal law meant to protect victims. Not only do prosecutors negotiate a carefully worded non-prosecution agreement with Epstein’s attorneys, they apparently don’t notify dozens of his alleged victims until after the deal has been signed. When the feds did send out notifications in 2008, documents reveal the FBI made it appear as if the investigation was still ongoing, even though they knew full well that a deal had been reached with Epstein to end the investigation.  If that’s not bad enough, attorneys for the alleged victims also presented evidence that prosecutors worked with Epstein’s attorneys to prevent the public disclosure of the non-prosecution agreement. In my view, the U.S. Attorney’s office would never have taken such action in a criminal case if they hadn’t been heavily influenced by Epstein’s slew of heavy-hitter attorneys which include Alan Dershowitz, Kenneth Starr, Roy Black, and Jay Lefkowitz.

It is interesting to note that Epstein's attorneys have refused to acknowledge his victims as victims because the attorneys believe the underage girls willingly participated.[14][Archived Version] Unfortunately for Mr. Epstein, US law provides that minors are incapable of consent, which is why statutory rape is a strict liability offense.[15] There is one cultural subset, however, that does share Epstein's attorneys' view that minors can consent. That is one of the founding principles of pedophile organizations like NAMBLA.[16][Archived Version]

In December 30, 2014, a federal civil suit was filed in Florida against the United States for this violation of the Crime Victims' Rights Act in agreeing to the 2008 plea. This case is discussed further under the [Civil Trials section]

Plea Bargain for Unidentified and Undisclosed Co-Conspirators

In the US, there is a right of public access to criminal proceedings. This right extends to the identity of criminal defendants. From Chapter 24 of the book, "Lessons from the Identity Trail: Anonymity, Privacy and Identity in a Networked Society ":

There are... strong restrictions precluding the anonymity of criminal defendants. The trial courts in southern and central Florida, for example, experimented with a system in which some cases involving defendants believed to be particularly dangerous were kept in a secret docket that was not made part of the public record. This practice was severely criticized by the court of appeal, which said that it violated the First Amendment right of the public, a right that extends to the docket sheets themselves.

The plea bargain (official title is a Non-Prosecution Agreement or NPA) in Epstein's case provided protection from prosecution for his unidentified "co-conspirators." According to the Daily Mail, the plea bargain was written as such, "The United States agrees that it will not institute any criminal charges against any potential co-conspirators of Epstein, including but not limited to Sarah Kellen, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff or Nadia Marcinkova." [Emphasis Added] It is clear there were other unidentified co-conspirators. The most likely being Ghislaine Maxwell, who would eventually be called Epstein's "madame" in civil suits. Another is Prince Andrew, who that Daily Mail article was discussing.[17] A third is Jean Luc Brunel, owner of MC2 who brought in Eastern European child models for Epstein, discussed further below.

Not surprisingly, it is unheard of for co-conspirators/co-defendants to be kept anonymous in a legal proceeding. Texas Attorney Michael Lowe writes:[18][Archived Version]

A Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Marie Villafaña
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Marie Villafaña
The NPA [or Plea Bargain] is VERY strange mostly due to the government’s grant of immunity to unknown and uncharged co-conspirators. This is unenforceable and borderline unethical. No lawyer can bargain on behalf of a client for whom he does not represent. That’s what was done here. What if one of the alleged co-conspirators wanted to have their day in court? It seems unlikely but every person charged has that right. Also, what if the government were to violate the NPA and prosecute one of the co-conspirators? Epstein couldn’t seek to undo the NPA because he lacks standing to do so. An NPA like this is simply not done and is unheard of in federal and state criminal law circles.

Here is a PDF of the Non-Prosecution Agreement: File:Epstein NPA.pdf

However, emails by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann Marie Villafaña to Epstein's attorneys show that was exactly the prosecution's intent - hiding information from the judge in addition to the public: “I will include our standard language regarding resolving all criminal liability and I will mention ‘co-conspirators,’ but I would prefer not to highlight for the judge all of the other crimes and all of the other persons that we could charge.”[19][Archived Version]

Holding Grand Jury Proceeding Against Palm Beach PD's Recommendation

Prosecutors employed a grand jury against Palm Beach PD's recommendation - the case did not require a grand jury hearing - and likely "threw the case" so only one criminal charge survived. For those unfamiliar, a grand jury is different from a trial jury. "A grand jury simply makes a predicate determination of whether there is probable cause that a crime has been committed and that the person accused committed the crime. In contrast to the trial jury's strict standard of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, this probable cause standard has been defined as 'a reasonable ground of suspicion supported by circumstances strong enough in themselves to warrant a cautious person in the belief that the named suspect is guilty of the offense charged.' In essence, the grand jury merely initiates a criminal prosecution."[20][Archived Version]

The crimes Epstein would be charged with were felonies but not capital offenses, thus a grand jury was not required. "In Florida, a grand jury indictment is required only to try a person for a capital offense; i.e., one where the death penalty may be given. Otherwise, the state attorney has concurrent authority to file a formal accusation of the commission of a crime (an "information"). The information is used routinely to charge individuals in Florida."[21][Archived Version]

However, prosecutors called a grand jury because they claimed the evidence in the case was "weak." This infuriated the Palm Beach PD who thought there was an immense body of evidence:[22]

As the case progressed, state attorney Barry Krischer, who also ran Florida's crimes against children unit, became increasingly reluctant to mount a prosecution. He said the local victims were not credible witnesses. Rather than charging Epstein, Krischer took the bizarre step of referring the case to a grand jury. America remains one of few countries in the world to still use grand juries to decide whether to prosecute a case. Two recently decided against indicting police officers who killed Mike Brown and Eric Garner. There is no judge presiding over a grand jury--instead, prosecuting attorneys, typically with close working relationships with the police, instruct the jury on the law. These attorneys hold a great deal of sway over the final results. It is no surprise, therefore, that the rich and powerful are keen for cases against them to go to a grand jury, where the prosecuting attorney, whom they may personally know, is able to "advise" the jury on what legal decision it should take. 

Indeed, records available now online show just how much evidence there was and the existence of so many substantiating witnesses, even by the prosecutions own admission - which private emails would later reveal. It also appears clear that the use of a grand jury gave Epstein and his attorneys time to re-torment his victims through verbal threats and use private investigators to harass the police and victims in their personal lives to discourage them from testifying.[23][Archived Version]

Possibility of Bribery

As would be revealed in civil trials discussed below, House manager Alfredo Rodriguez "testified that Epstein made large contributions to the Palm Beach Police Department, and in return was given PBPD baseball hats to put on the dashboard of his various cars to avoid being stopped or ticketed by local police. Retired Police Chief Michael Reiter, in his own deposition, acknowledged that, in addition to earlier donations to the police department (which are fairly common in well-heeled Palm Beach), Epstein had recently given the department $100,000 for some sophisticated equipment. The police were still researching the purchase when Epstein came under suspicion, and Reiter ordered the money returned."[24][Archived Version]

In situations where there are ethical questions regarding the police force involved in investigating a case, an independent prosecution should be brought in. That did not happen in this case.

Unusual Sentence

Epstein was only sentenced to 18 months, and of that, served only 13. He was not sent to a state prison but rather was "segregated in a vacant wing of the county stockade."[25] In addition, "Epstein was let out on work release six days a week for up to 16 hours a day."[26] "During his yearlong house arrest, Epstein flew around the country on his private jets to conduct business, with approval from the court and his probation officer. He also went to Home Depot and Sports Authority for large periods of time, all approved by his probation officer."[27]

Ex-U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta stated, “Epstein appears to have received highly unusual treatment while in jail. Although the terms of confinement in a state prison are a matter appropriately left to the State of Florida and not federal authorities, without doubt, the treatment that he received while in state custody undermined the purpose of a jail sentence.”[28]

Civil Trials involving the "Lolita Express" and "Orgy Island"

Generally Accepted Facts from Wikipedia

On February 6, 2008, an anonymous Virginia woman filed a $50 million civil lawsuit in federal court against Epstein, alleging that when she was a 16-year-old minor in 2004–2005, she was "recruited to give Epstein a massage". She claims she was taken to his mansion, where he exposed himself and had sexual intercourse with her, and paid her $200 immediately afterward. A similar $50 million suit was filed in March 2008 by a different woman, who was represented by the same lawyer. Several of these lawsuits were dismissed, and all other lawsuits were settled out of court. Epstein made many out-of-court settlements with alleged victims, and some cases remain ongoing. A December 30, 2014, federal civil suit was filed in Florida against the United States for violations of the Crime Victims' Rights Act in agreeing to the 2008 plea; it accuses Alan Dershowitz of sexually abusing a minor provided by Epstein. (See Two Jane Does v. United States.) However, the allegations against Dershowitz were stricken by the judge and eliminated from the case after Dershowitz's attorney argued that they were baseless. A court document alleges that Epstein ran a "sexual abuse ring", and lent underage girls to "prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders".

Virginia Roberts

Also goes by her married name, Virginia Giuffre.[29] She is one of Epstein's victims, first solicited by his madam, Ghislaine Maxwell at Mar-A-Lago, the Palm Beach resort owned by President-elect, Donald Trump.[30] She is one of the two Jane Does in the federal civil suit case mentioned above. The ongoing status of that legal proceeding is available here. For more details on the plaintiffs' claims in this case, see this Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgement as a Matter of Law.

Irregularities within the Civil Trials

No New Criminal Prosecutions Based on New Victims

Federal Statute of Limitations does not apply as the crimes involve human trafficking.[32][Archived Version]

This is particularly notable, as the complaint in Jane Doe 43 v Epstein et al claims that Epstein's activities continued after 2007, which is the term his non-prosecution agreement covers. For more, see "Jane Doe 43 v. Epstein" on the page of this wiki, Jeffrey Epstein Legal Documents.

House Manager Alfredo Rodriguez and his Obstruction of Justice Trial

From Wikipedia

On June 18, 2010, Epstein's former butler, Alfredo Rodriguez, was sentenced to 18 months incarceration on an obstruction charge for failing to turn over, and subsequently trying to sell, a journal that he said recorded Epstein's activities. FBI Special Agent Christina Pryor reviewed the material and agreed it was information "that would have been extremely useful in investigating and prosecuting the case, including names and contact information of material witnesses and additional victims". Epstein allegedly lent girls to powerful people to ingratiate himself with them and also to get possible blackmail information.

Little Black Book

That "Little Black Book" is the basis for individuals in the "Additional Material Witnesses or Participants" section below.

The Identified and Unpunished Co-Conspirators

Sarah Kellen

Sarah Kellen is specifically mentioned in the Palm Beach Police Department Probable Cause Affidavit.[Archived Version] She was Epstein's personal assistant and would take the victim's names and phone numbers.

Nada/Nadia Marcinkova

Nada Marcinkova has been identified by victims as an active participant in Epstein's illicit activities. According to reports, Nada Marcinkova was a victim herself initially and bought from her Eastern European parents by Epstein for use as a sex slave.[34] However, over time it would seem she herself would also turn into an aggressor.

From Gawker:

[Redacted] advised that things escalated within the home as Epstein would instruct and pay [redacted] to have intercourse with his female friend, Nada Marcinkova. [Redacted] explained the intercourse included strap on d*ldos, large rubber penis' [sic] and other devices that Epstein had at his disposal. Epstein would watch them have intercourse and masturbate himself. Occasionally, Epstein would then join in during the female on female intercourse and provide oral sex to both [redacted] and Marcinkova. This occurred during the time [redacted] was sixteen years of age.[Archived Version]

Jean-Luc Brunel is discussed further below.

Additional Material Witnesses or Participants

Epstein's butler/house manager, Alfredo Rodriguez, kept a "Little Black Book" of all of Epstein's contacts. To make it easier for a potential buyer, Rodriguez seemingly circled all individuals he thought could provide material information regarding Jeffrey Epstein's crimes.[35] The list is as follows:

Individuals that received massages (presumably erotic), based on Rodriguez's information

It should be noted, Virginia Roberts, has said in court papers that "massages" at Epstein's Palm Beach mansion were "always sexual."[36]

MC2 Modeling Agency, Jean-Luc Brunel, and Accusations of Sex Trafficking

Jean-Luc Brunel is a 50-plus French playboy who was formerly part owner of Karin, a Paris-based modeling agency.[39] Epstein made a $1 million wire transfer to Jean Luc Brunel’s offshore bank account in September 2004, just as Brunel was setting up his own MC2 modeling agency.[40]

"Perhaps most disturbing, in terms of possible sex trafficking, was Epstein’s relationship with Jean Luc Brunel, owner of the MC2 modeling agency. According to a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, an alleged victim said that Epstein, assistant and girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, Brunel, [house manager Alfredo] Rodriguez, and Marcinkova ‘deliberately engaged in a pattern of racketeering that involved luring minor children through MC2, mostly girls under the age of 17, to engage in sexual play for money.’" [41][Archived Version]

In 1988, “60 Minutes” interviewed models who said they were drugged and raped by Brunel.[42] "Brunel 'ranks among the sleaziest people in the fashion industry. We’re talking about a conveyor belt, not a casting couch. Hundreds of girls were not only harassed but molested.'"[43]

Jeffrey Epstein stole or was authorized to use a DynCorp and State Department tail number, N474AW

Voat user Freed0mFighter uncovered a special report on Occurrences: Foreign and Domestic (archived)(original PDF) identifying the fact that one of Jeffrey Epstein's suspected trafficking aircraft shared the same tail number (N474AW) as a State Department Bronco used under contract by DynCorp. The use of this tail number by the Department of State and DynCorp can be corroborated by official government records.[44] This would mean that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked underage girls using a tail number registered by DynCorp and during the same time period as DynCorp when they trafficked minors in Bosnia and other parts of the Balkan states. If issued by some sort of accident or if one of the two aircraft was decommissioned, the statistical odds of just two craft sharing the same number would still be over 1 in over 900,000.[45] See also DynCorp section on Connection to aircraft shared by Jeffrey Epstein, the CIA, and DynCorp and Connection to identified criminal activities in Bosnia

Swiss Leaks and the HSBC Banking Scandal

The Guardian reported that Epstein kept funds in a controversial Swiss branch of HSBC known for its criminal clients. "The HSBC files show Epstein connected to several Geneva accounts, one of which was in his own name and contained $3.5m. He gave $25,000 to the Clinton charity in July 2006, the year after he was arrested following a complaint he sexually abused a 14-year-old teenager in Florida, according to tax disclosures from Epstein’s New York-based nonprofit, the COUQ Foundation."

Eternal Youth

Epstein finances several different science initiatives through The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation. From Wikipedia:[69]

The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation is a private science foundation known for establishing the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University with a $30 million gift to the university. The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics is considered the first department of its kind to study the evolution of molecular biology with the sole use of mathematics. It is also one of the first departments to develop mathematical models of how human cancer cells evolve as well as infectious bacteria and viruses such as HIV.

The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation is also known for giving one of the largest amounts of funding to individual scientists around the world. Since 2000, the Foundation has given approximately $200 million a year to many notable scientists including Stephen Hawking, Marvin Minsky, Eric Lander, Lawrence Krauss, Lee Smolin, George Church, Ben Goertzel, Kip Thorne, Gregory Benford and numerous Nobel laureates, including, Gerald Edelman, Murray Gell-Mann, Gerard ’t Hooft, David Gross, and Frank Wilczek. Over the years, the Foundation has convened many of these scientists in conferences to discuss the consensus on fundamental science topics such as gravity, global threats to the Earth and language.

The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation is based in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was established in 2000 by New York financier, science philanthropist, and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the Chairman and CEO of a New York investment firm called the Financial Trust Co. Officially registered as J. Epstein VI Foundation, the "VI" stands for Virgin Islands, where Epstein owns a private island called Little Saint James near St. Thomas. The foundation's board includes Cecile de Jongh, the wife of the Governor of the islands, John de Jongh.

In addition to supporting science and education, Epstein sits on the board of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee at Harvard University. He is also actively involved in the Santa Fe Institute, the Theoretical Biology Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and the Quantum Gravity Program at the University of Pennsylvania. Epstein is also well acquainted with Harvard's ex-president Larry Summers—the two served together on the Trilateral 
Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

There has been much controversy to the foundation and money given to Harvard by Epstein. Many called upon Harvard to return donations after his conviction for using underaged girls for his own sexual pleasure, as well as to gain favor with prominent politicians and businessmen. Many other people and institutions returned donations after Epstein's prosecution for such was made public. However, Harvard refused to do so, or disassociate itself from Epstein.

One of the studies the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University published in 2008 was on preventing or reversing aging called, Aging and Immortality in a Cell Proliferation Model. The abstract is as follows:[70]

We investigate a model of cell division in which the length of telomeres within a cell regulates its proliferative potential. At each division, telomeres undergo a systematic length decrease as well as a superimposed fluctuation due to exchange of telomere DNA between the two daughter cells. A cell becomes senescent when one or more of its telomeres become shorter than a critical length. We map this telomere dynamics onto a biased branching diffusion process with an absorbing boundary condition whenever any telomere reaches the critical length. Using first-passage ideas, we find a phase transition between finite lifetime and immortality (infinite proliferation) of the cell population as a function of the influence of telomere shortening, fluctuations, and cell division.
