An extensive report from the Wall Street Journal has unveiled a new list of alleged associates of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The people mentioned in the Wall Street Journal‘s report had not been previously known associates of Epstein’s.
The new list of names comes after the Wall Street Journal uncovered a trove of previously unreported documents that included emails and Epstein’s private calendar from 2013 to 2017.
All of the following information is from a Wall Street Journal report that was condensed by New York Magazine:
Ehud Barak, former Israeli prime minister – “Ehud Barak, former Israeli prime minister and longtime Israeli politician was a regular guest of Epstein’s at his Upper East Side townhouse in the years from 2013 to 2017.”
Leon Botstein, president of Bard College – “Epstein had roughly two dozen meetings scheduled with Botstein over the four years covered in the documents, mostly at his townhouse.”
William Burns, CIA director – “Epstein had three scheduled meetings in 2014 with Burns, who was at that point the deputy security of state in the Obama administration.”
Noam Chomsky – “Epstein arranged several meetings with Chomsky in 2015 and 2016, when he was teaching at MIT… as well as a flight with Epstein aboard his private jet to New York to have a dinner at his townhouse with film director Woody Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn.”
Joshua Cooper Ramo, a FedEx board member – “Epstein scheduled more than a dozen meetings over the four years with Ramo, who was at that point a co-CEO of Henry Kissinger’s consulting company.”
Kathryn Ruemmler, Goldman Sachs general counsel – “Epstein scheduled more than three dozen meetings with Ruemmler, starting in 2014, after she left the White House counsel’s office and joined the private sector as a partner at the law firm Latham & Watkins.”
Terje Rød-Larsen, Norwegian diplomat – “He was such a fixture at Epstein’s New York townhouse between 2013 and 2017 that the staff knew to have cucumbers ready for his gin… also received a personal loan from Epstein, as well as a donation to his nonprofit.”
Epstein, a former financier and broker, was first convicted on child prostitution charges back in 2005. Despite this, Epstein was able to grow increasingly powerful over the next decade-plus until he was eventually arrested again in July 2019 on charges of sex trafficking minors in both New York and Florida.
About a month after his arrest — on August 10, 2019 — Epstein died in his cell in what was ruled a suicide by hanging, which has been a source of constant conspiracy in recent years.
Following Epstein’s death, the only other person that has been charged in connection to his sex trafficking crimes is British socialite e Ghislaine Maxwell, who was convicted on charges of sex trafficking, child sexual abuse, and prostitution back in 2021.
