New ‘Trove’ Of Jeffrey Epstein E-Mails Reveals Some Of The Celebrities And Business Moguls Who Had Meetings With Him



The most frustrating aspect of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal – you know, aside from the whole grooming and trafficking vulnerable teenagers for old, depraved millionaires side of things – is that it doesn’t seem like we’ll ever get the whole truth. The victims will never get full closure or justice, and the world will never see Epstein’s full list of co-conspirators, and you can only assume that’s because too many powerful people are involved.

Still, we are given occasional revelations in the form of leaked Epstein e-mails or files, and a lot of the time it’s names we’ve known about for a while or were only rumoured up to that point.

This week, some new information via a ‘vast trove’ of Jeffrey Epstein’s private calendars and e-mails have been shared by the Daily Mail. They show that Epstein courted the world’s elite even after serving 13 months in jail for having sex with underage girls – and being labeled a registered sex offender.

It’s actually a really long list, so let me just copy & paste the names and highlights from the article below:

Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson

Prince Andrew has admitted to being friends with Epstein for more than a decade. He flew on his private plane numerous times, stayed at his properties and even visited Epstein’s island in the Caribbean, witnesses have claimed. 

David Blaine and Chris Rock

David Blaine’s only previously known connection to Epstein was appearing in his black book of contacts but the two men appear to have had a friendship, the records suggest.

In June 2013 Epstein had a dinner with the futurist Pablos Holman and a ‘Jessica Joffe’, which appears to be the actress of the same name.

The schedule says: ‘David Blaine will stop by toward the end of dinner.’ …

The calendar also says that ‘maybe Chris Rock’ would be coming, the first time that the comedian has been linked to Epstein. In 2002 Epstein did invite another comedian, Chris Tucker, on a trip to Africa with former President Bill Clinton aboard Epstein’s private jet.

A source close to Rock said that he did not attend the dinner. The source admitted that Rock was friendly with Woody Allen – the comedian has previously said he has watched the director’s movie Annie Hall more than 80 times – but that Epstein may have confused him with Tucker. 

Bill Gates

Gates and Epstein had several meetings as the pedophile tried to persuade him to be the face of a fund where wealthy investors put in at least $100million each. …

In April 2011 Gates was scheduled for a dinner with former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers and Jes Staley, who at the time was the head of JP Morgan. … On September 8 the schedule said that at 10am Epstein was to meet Gates and billionaire Tom Pritzker at the Park Hyatt hotel in Manhattan.

They were to walk to the office of Leon Black followed by a meeting with Mort Zuckerman, both billionaire investors.

Later that day, Gates and Epstein would meet Kathy Ruemmler, the former Obama White House counsel, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan. …

Epstein rolled out the red carpet with some of his most important friends: Thorbjorn Jagland, the former Norwegian politician, and Norwegian diplomat Terje Rød Larsen, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers and his wife and Eva Dubin.

Woody Allen

Epstein’s friendship with director Woody Allen was known but the closeness of their relationship comes to light through the calendars. …

Later that month the calendars say that Epstein would ‘depart LA for ranch with Woody Allen’, apparently referring to Epstein’s New Mexico ranch.

On December 29, the schedule says that Allen was ‘in PB (Palm Beach) with Jeffrey’.

September 2014 was one of the busiest months for their friendship and there was a dinner with former Obama White House counsel Kathy Ruemmler and Pay Pal founder Peter Thiel.

Jes Staley …

The logs show that Staley met Epstein at least 31 times from 2010-2015, many of which were after work hours at 6pm or 7pm. …

But the most disturbing calendar entries feature mention of Epstein making sure that ‘wine’ was available for Staley during his visits – in what appears to be a possible codeword for something else. …

On September 9, 2014, the diary noted a 7.30pm appointment with Staley. It read: ‘HAVE JES’S WHITE WINE AVAILABLE’.

On November 20 that year next to a 5.30pm appointment, the schedule said: ‘Jes Staley (MAKE SURE WE HAVE WHITE WINE).’ ///

On December 4, 2009, Staley told Epstein via email: ‘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’.

The next day, Epstein wrote to Staley: ‘You were with Larry, and I had to put up with . . .’ and attached a picture of a young woman, which is redacted in the court document.

Staley responded: ‘Don’t tell me, a French wine.’

Epstein replied: ‘Always thoughts of alcohol.’

In other previously released Epstein and Staley talked about Disney princesses including one message sent in July 2010.

Staley told Epstein: ‘Maybe they’re tracking u? That was fun. Say hi to Snow White’.

Epstein responded: ‘(W)hat character would you like next?’

When Staley said ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Epstein replied: ‘Well one side is available’.

(Using wines and Disney princesses as code names for trafficked girls? Sounds like exactly the sort of thing Epstein and his sex trafficking ring would do. Anyway, let’s continue…)

Irina Shayk, Wendi Murdoch and Richard Branson

The sole mention of Shayk is on February 14, 2012. At the time the Russian model was in high demand and appeared on the cover of magazines like Esquire UK and was dating soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. …

Wendi Murdoch, the former wife of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is listed under a September 27, 2012 entry. …

The note says that ‘Richard Branson may join the dinner’.

Peter Thiel

Tech billionaire and early Facebook investor Peter Thiel had several meetings with Epstein, the calendars show. …

He was also the chairman of analytics company Palantir, which works closely with the Department of Defense. …

The two men met for dinner at Epstein’s New York mansion on the 12th with Woody Allen present, the schedule says.

The following day Epstein met Thiel on his own from 2pm to 4pm after which Bill Burns, the current director of the CIA who was deputy secretary of state at the time, joined them for an hour. …

A source close to Parker said that the meeting ‘never happened’ although it was scheduled to take place.

Norway’s Crown Princess Mette-Marit appears in the calendars in September 2013, with Epstein’s scheduler writing: ‘Princess Mette to arrive today and stay until Thur Sep 26’. …

Tommy Mottola, the former chair of Sony Music, is mentioned twice with reminders for Epstein to call him, once in June 2013 and another time in January 2014.

Through a spokeswoman Mottola confirmed he had spoken to Epstein.

He said: ‘Mr. Epstein and I shared some mutual acquaintances, and he called me several times to request concert tickets, as many people do’. …

Others who appear in the calendars include Former Norwegian Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik who had an 8.30am breakfast with Epstein in October 2013.

So I feel most of these names we knew about or had at least been connected to Epstein already, but still pretty shocking to see some of the details there. The saddest part is that there are definitely more big names involved and most we will never hear about. Too many of the rich and powerful stand to lose too much if the full list of names were ever to become available.

Obviously, it should be said that just because some name or celebrity was in Epstein’s calendar, it doesn’t necessarily mean they should have any fingers pointed at them. Epstein was peak high society; anyone who was even semi-famous has probably been at a dinner/party that he was hosting or attending. Doesn’t mean they got on his plane, flew to his island, or had sex with any of the girls he trafficked.

In the end though, Epstein got off too easy and so will most of his peers. Who knows? Maybe some kind of Snowden/Assange figure will manage to reveal all before going someday. We can only hope.
