After Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself in 2019, JPMorgan Chase went to the US Treasury Department and suddenly turned over 13 years’ worth of suspicious activity reports. The bank handled more than $1 billion in transactions for Epstein between 1998 and 2013.
The only reason why this information is coming out now is because the US Virgin Islands is suing JPMorgan Chase for facilitating Epstein’s child trafficking operation on their territory, while obviously knowing what he was up to.
The question right now is whether the bank will settle the case to prevent it from going to trial—which could result in some more of Epstein’s high-rolling, child sex-trafficking clients being outed.
The attorney suing Epstein is named Mimi Liu. She’s highlighting the obvious here. Why did JPMorgan Chase wait until after Epstein’s death to mention that, oh, by the way, this guy had a billion dollars in suspicious transactions?
Epstein was not a regular customer at JPMorgan Chase. He wasn’t a depositor. He was a client of the bank’s, which means he was running all his financial transactions through the institution. Epstein was running money through the bank even after he finished serving his first sweetheart sentence for child molesting. Epstein was forced to register as a lifelong, high-risk, repeat sex offender in New York in 2011. It was only 2013 that JPMorgan Chase finally fired him as a client.
JPMorgan Chase’s suspicious activity reports to the Treasury Department have never been made public. Attorney Mimi Liu says that the bank ignored Jeffrey Epstein’s obvious child sex trafficking and blackmail empire because he was such a lucrative client. She’s suing the bank for $190 million on behalf of the US Virgin Islands, although the final number could end up being much more.
The bank claims that this was all the US Virgin Islands’ fault, because the territory was too cozy with Epstein. The logic on that one is kind of fuzzy, but maybe the bank is signaling that it has evidence of transactions from high-ranking government officials who were paying Epstein for sex with kids. Epstein was, after all, providing boys and girls to political, social and entertainment elites across the spectrum and then blackmailing them.
That’s according to Ghislaine Maxwell, who admitted to a friend that Epstein had videotapes of all his friends and guests with the trafficked children at his properties in New York and USVI. Those tapes either disappeared from Epstein’s safe in Manhattan, or are in the possession of the FBI, which is even scarier. No wonder we can’t get Republicans in Congress to impeach Joe Biden. (Yeah. We just went there.)
Let’s not forget that the lead prosecutor for the US government on Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial was Maureen Comey, the daughter of the disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, who concocted the Russia collusion hoax. The world just isn’t small enough for that to have been a coincidence. Maureen Comey conveniently got Ghislaine Maxwell for trafficking children to no one in particular. Where’s the damned client list?
The case brought by the US Virgin Islands against JPMorgan Chase is a bit of a wild card. It is a civil case, so that makes it more difficult for the Justice Department to step in the middle of it and start hiding things from the public. Those suspicious activity reports that the bank filed after Epstein’s death are likely a treasure trove of information about his trafficking and blackmail empire. A billion dollars in transactions is a staggering amount of money.
It wouldn’t be very difficult for an amateur forensic accountant to start picking those transactions apart. They’d simply have to look for high-profile people who paid Epstein smaller amounts of cash at first for encounters with children, and then paid him hundreds of thousands or even millions later when the blackmail scheme kicked in. How much money from the Clinton Foundation ended up in Jeffrey Epstein’s accounts? Inquiring minds want to know!
This is all something that could end up happening, but only if JPMorgan Chase allows the case to go to trial. They have until October 23rd to reach a settlement agreement, and if that doesn’t happen, anything goes in the trial. The bank will probably settle, won’t they?
