Feds Knew About Over $1B in Human Trafficking Transactions After Epstein’s Death

Recent court disclosures indicate that federal authorities had knowledge of over $1 billion in suspicious “human trafficking” transactions connected to the late financier Jeffrey Epstein.

These revelations, dating back 16 years, have emerged in the wake of Epstein’s death in 2019, shedding new light on the sinister activities of the notorious sex offender.

Mimi Liu, representing the U.S. Virgin Islands, made this explosive revelation during a recent hearing in a Manhattan federal court on Thursday, CNBC reported.

She argued that JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the United States, had notified the Treasury Department about these transactions after Epstein’s passing, adding a layer of complexity to an already contentious legal battle.

Liu didn’t mince words, stating, “‘Epstein’s entire business with JPMorgan and JPMorgan’s entire business with Epstein was human trafficking.”

She made this assertion while advocating for a summary court judgment in favor of the plaintiffs — the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The $190 million lawsuit alleges that the bank played a role in facilitating Epstein’s sex trafficking of young women during his time as a JPMorgan customer, spanning from 1998 to 2013, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

Liu highlighted a $9 million series of transactions involving payments to women and questionable withdrawals from Epstein’s accounts at the bank, CNBC reported.

These transactions were purportedly linked to the facilitation of over 20,000 sexual encounters, considering Epstein’s pattern of disbursing several hundred dollars for each sexual liaison.

“JPMorgan was a full-service bank for Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking,” Liu asserted during the hearing.

The disgraced financier was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges when he met his demise in a Manhattan jail cell, an incident officially classified as suicide.

The Virgin Islands alleged that the bank maintained a business relationship with Epstein for an extended period, disregarding multiple internal warning signs and his 2008 admission of guilt in a Florida sex crime, according to CNBC.

Liu contended that as early as 2006, the bank had amassed extensive financial data related to Epstein, which served to substantiate his involvement in “sex crimes involving children.”

JPMorgan has vehemently denied having any knowledge of Epstein’s involvement in a sex trafficking operation during his tenure as their client.

The bank has also retaliated with allegations of its own, claiming that high-ranking officials in the territory extended favors to Epstein, including tax concessions and waived “sex-offender monitoring requirements,” in exchange for financial incentives, according to the Daily Beast.

JPMorgan’s filings reveal that Cecile de Jongh, the former first lady of the territory, managed Epstein’s affairs while her husband served as territorial governor, the Daily Mail reported.

Epstein also made notable donations to local politicians, including Democratic Virgin Islands Delegate Stacey Plaskett, according to Insider.

Felicia Ellsworth, representing JPMorgan, argued that it was inappropriate for the judge to determine the bank’s knowledge before the trial and also contended that the U.S. territory lacked the legal standing to file a lawsuit, CNBC reported.

She also argued that JPMorgan had notified the feds about Epstein’s transactions multiple times, including as early as 2002, the Daily Mail reported.

Ellsworth went on to challenge the Virgin Islands’ claim that their client had impeded investigations into Epstein, asserting that the bank had proactively pursued information from federal authorities concerning their ongoing inquiries into Epstein’s behavior.

The legal battle awaits U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff’s verdict on Thursday’s motions.

A decision on expediting the resolution of major legal disputes is expected by the end of September, ahead of the Oct. 23 trial.

Back in June, Rakoff gave his preliminary approval to JPMorgan’s $290 million settlement with women who claimed they were abused by Epstein.

    This dirtbag probably had so much dirt on the rich and powerful than hung out with him. He was killed in prison to keep him quiet. Glad this asshole is gone.

    • Sharon says:

      Yes he is gone, but now we will never get the names of the people who Epstein provided girls for. They have the names and I am sure they have been destroyed.

  • Tamirose170 says:

    It’s a fluke that Joe Bidens’ brother, James – just happens to own the island next to Epstein Island, right? Is it also a fluke that both Epstein and Water Island (name of J. Bidens) both have submarine ports and Ghislane Maxwell had her Submarine Operator license…..Just has to be a coincidence that young children were seen on BOTH islands and IF they ever caught wind of a “raid” at Epstein, that Epstein Island was cleared and then they miraculously re-appeared – – just a fluke, right? I’d like to see the Flight Logs for All the trips Joe, James and Hunter Biden have made to anywhere within that 25 mile radius…..

  • Go trump says:

  • Louis says:

    …and the BULLSHIT just keeps on coming. This is just another BULLSHIT report, trying to solidify the FALSE premise that Epstein committed suicide.

    NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH…

    Epstein was a psychopath – NOT a sociopath. There’s a difference.

    Some sociopaths are narcissists. Some narcissists are sociopaths. But ALL psychopaths ARE narcissists. Sociopathy is a learned behavior. It’s learned by others or the environment. Conversely, psychopathy is NOT a learned behavior. It is genetically contrived. They’re born w/ it. It’s in their DNA. In other words – they’re wired like this from birth. Therefore, (and again), the difference between sociopaths and psychopaths is this: ALL psychopaths are narcissists – not just some. In other words, they are in love w/ themselves, i.e. they will do/say whatever it takes to save themselves. Bottom line: They will (and have) KILLED to save their own lives. Psychopaths are the most dangerous people on the face of the earth. They are NOTHING as they appear and can ‘sell’ their outward appearance of character masterfully. They are extremely intelligent, (most are ‘Mensa material’), creative and charming. However, their most effective attribute is that they are master manipulators who continuously utilize everything and everyone around them as tools to be used for their convenience and/or entertainment. Also dangerously present: THEY HAVE NO CONSCIENCE – NONE. Therefore, they have no remorse – for anything…especially if it results in negative consequences for others, and especially if the negative results are caused by them. They also do not possess the ability to feel others’ pain. Collectively w/ everything mentioned, this is why it is EXTREMELY difficult to try and get ANY psychopath to fail a lie detector test. It’s also the reason why it’s so difficult to convict them. They can (and will) outsmart the most intelligent and experienced, not only in law enforcement, but also clinical psychology experts. Additionally, they also believe they’re above the law and will be able to escape ANY punishment given to them by the law.

    Prime examples of a psychopath: O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony.

    Therefore: It is LUDICROUS to believe that Jeffrey Epstein would take his own life. Yes, he was in prison. But he had EVERY reason to believe it was just another ‘temporary setback’ in his life…that he would be either found ‘not guilty’, or all charges would be dropped. Why? BECAUSE HE HAD THE MEANS AND RESOURCES TO BUY HIS WAY OUT. He had done it before, (SEVERAL times), and he was MORE than confident he could do it again.

    So, again, WHY WOULD HE KILL HIMSELF?! HE DIDN’T. Jeffrey Epstein is alive and well (and hidden)…and continues living the lifestyle of which he has been accustomed to. How do we know this?

    Facts:

    FACT: The night Epstein allegedly committed suicide, there was an inexplicable and mysterious ‘black out’ for several minutes at the prison. In addition and to compound the situation, emergency power did not automatically activate. Result: There was a ‘blackout condition’ at the prison w/ NO power whatsoever for several minutes until power was finally restored.

    FACT: When power was finally restored, everything came back ‘online’ – everything but the cameras which were in proximity of Epstein’s cell.

    FACT: To this day, it is not known who discovered Jeffrey Epsteins’ body. The report only states that an ‘anonymous guard’ discovered his body lying on the floor from outside his cell. It also (conveniently) states the body could not be readily identified, as it was covered w/ a sheet. Also stated was the fact that guards were told to immediately seal off the area around his cell, and that no one, (not even the head guard), was allowed to go inside the cell. They were to wait for a ‘special team’ to go in and remove the body.

    FACT: When his body was removed, there was ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE confirming the body was that of Jeffrey Epstein – NONE. No video, (all the cameras were mysteriously turned off). No witnesses, (to this day, the records of those removing the body are sealed and cannot be accessed, per the 6th District Federal Court of NY).

    FACT: There continues to be conflicting stories given, not only by the M.E. and coroner about the results of the autopsy, (manner of death, cause of death, etc.), there continues to be conflicting reports given by almost every LEO who was on the scene. Almost ALL have changed their stories, (some drastically), at least once since the incident.

    FACT: After the autopsy report was made public, SEVERAL SME’s, (subject matter experts) around the world ALL agreed there were ‘numerous inconsistencies’ pertaining to the ‘Cause of Death’, (strangulation), and ‘Manner of Death’, (suicide). Statements regarding the position of the body, where/how it was found, and the alleged method used were all contra-indicated w/ suicide. Additionally, after examining the X-rays, they also concluded the ‘Cause of Death’ was more appropriately caused by strangulation – not suicide.

    JEFFREY EPSTEIN IS ALIVE AND WELL, AND LIVING HIS LIFE AS HE ALWAYS KNEW HE WOULD.
