Jeffrey Epstein was Davos on Steroids


He hung out with the CIA director, Obama's WH counsel, the chairman of LinkedIn and more...but where are the foreign players?

So, the Wall Street Journal has produced two more brilliant Epstein scoops (here and here) that shed further light on my story last week about Epstein’s role as an elite global concierge.

I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to speculate that someone with access to the discovery in the civil suits filed by the US Virgin Islands and Jane Doe against JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank is sharing documents with the paper. That would explain why the Journal has cited the content of previously unseen emails and snippets of Epstein’s calendar in years post his 2008 conviction as a sex offender.

Turns out that in Epstein’s “pretend penitent era” for want of a better description (he told everyone that the 17-year-old he “solicited” had not told him her true age) his home was like a sort of Davos on steroids.

The list of US VIPs he held meetings with gets longer by the minute. Venture capitalist Reid Hoffman flew with him to his Island. The CIA director William “Bill” Burns met with Epstein when he was the deputy secretary of state in 2014 and, reportedly, he thought Epstein was just a rich guy.

“The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector,” a CIA spokesperson said. (I cannot be the only person marveling at the apparent porousness of our State Department, and the lack of basic background information supplied to the guy now in charge of the CIA).
