JPMorgan Exec and Epstein Had ‘Close Personal Relationship’, Exec Loved Little St. James Island

New unsealed portions of a lawsuit revealed that over 20 of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking victims were paid through JPMorgan accounts, the banking giant’s former executive privately discussed the allegations surrounding him as far back as 2006, and there was a ‘profound’ friendship between the exec and Epstein.

According to Law and Crime, one of the portions of the lawsuit the Virgin Islands government filed accusing JP Morgan Chase of “complicity” in Epstein’s crimes alleged “These women were trafficked and abused during different intervals between at least 2003 and July 2019, when Epstein was arrested and jailed, and these women received payments, typically multiple payments, between 2003 and 2013 in excess of $1 million collectively. Epstein also withdrew more than $775,000 in cash over that time frame from JP Morgan accounts, especially significant as Epstein was known to pay for ‘massages,’ or sexual encounters, in cash.”

The portions were previously redacted and the megabank has attempted to have the lawsuit dismissed according to the outlet, calling it a “meritless” reach into “deeper pockets” following the Virgin Islands’ more than $100 million settlement with Epstein’s estates.

The Virgin Islands government unsealed more of their lawsuit Wednesday revealing that JPMorgan knew about Epstein and accused predator and owner of the MC2 Modeling Company Jean Luc Brunel, a French modeling scout.

According to the lawsuit, “Financial information also reflects payments drawn from JP Morgan accounts of nearly $1.5 million to known recruiters, including to the MC2 modeling agency, and another $150,000 to a private investigative firm,” and as early as 2006, JPMorgan’s Global Corporate Security Division flagged “[s]everal newspaper articles . . . that detail the indictment of Jeffrey Epstein in Florida on felony charges of soliciting underage prostitutes.”

Epstein would later enter into a non-prosecution agreement that enabled him to serve a light sentence that predated his prosecution for federal sex trafficking prosecution.

JPMorgan’s risk management division in an email thread four years later discussed new allegations against Epstein: “See below new allegations of an investigation related to child trafficking – are you still comfortable with this client who is now a registered sex offender.”

The newly unredacted portions discussed Epstein’s “close personal relationship” to JPMorgan’s then-senior executive Jes Staley, who later became CEO of Barclays and resigned when his ties to Epstein were revealed. “Between 2008 and 2012, Staley exchanged approximately 1,200 emails with Epstein from his JP Morgan email account. 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.”

The Virgin Islands claim Staley sent one of those emails on Nov. 1, 2009, from Epstein’s Little St. James, while Epstein was imprisoned in Florida.

According to the suit the email stated, “So when all hell breaks lo[o]se, and the world is crumbling, I will come here, and be at peace. Presently, I’m in the hot tub with a glass of white wine. This is an amazing place. Truly amazing. Next time, we’re here together. I owe you much. And I deeply appreciate our friendship. I have few so profound.”

The suit alleged that Staley replied a month later saying, “I realize the danger in sending this email. But it was great to be able, today, to give you, in New York City, a long heartfelt, hug,” and that December, Epstein allegedly sent Staley a photograph of a young girl, whose image was redacted in the suit.

The unredacted portions also included messages about “Snow White.” According to the suit, Staley sent an email to Epstein in July 2010 saying, “Maybe they’re tracking u? That was fun. Say hi to Snow White,” according to the lawsuit. Epstein allegedly answered, “[W]hat character would you like next?” and Staley replied, “Beauty and the Beast.”

Epstein then answered, “well one side is available,” according to the suit.

    I wonder if Menendez (D-NJ) is still flying down to DR with his Dr. friend to diddle little girls,, I frequently see a SAM flight from DC heading to DR on weekends.

    I want to see the full list of clients that frequented Epstein’s pedoparadise. I’m sure we won’t be surprised, but these roaches must be brought to justice. Somebody’s got to pay the “bill.”

    still no justice, our children under attack, our votes do not count just fake ballots.

  • Susan says:

    So, it begins…no wonder they are burning the country down in order to deflect from what is coming!

  • Ron says:

    Well certainly. The Morgan family is one of the Deep State families that carries on the secret dealings generation after generation. They probably profit from Epstein’s business somehow.
