As the Department of Justice (DOJ) refuses to release the “client list” of Jeffrey Epstein, new names of powerful elites connected to the deceased child trafficker continue to emerge.
When Epstein was found dead in a New York City jail cell in August 2019, he was awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges.
After his death, Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell did face trial and was convicted over her role in the sex trafficking operation.
For trafficking women and underage girls to Epstein’s associates, Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
However, authorities have refused to reveal who exactly they were trafficking their victims to.
Meanwhile, Epstein’s infamous “little black book” of contacts is known to contain many famous names.
While not proof of any wrongdoing, the prominent politicians, businessmen, and entertainers are all listed in the book of Epstein’s contacts.
Now, New York magazine has compiled a list of high-profile individuals known to have met with Epstein who do not appear in the black book. Its reporting is based on documents obtained by The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.
The names include:
- Apollo Global Management co-founder Leon Black
- Bard College president Leon Botstein
- Google co-founder Sergey Brin
- CIA Director William Burns
- Professor Noam Chomsky, whose meetings with Epstein included a dinner with director Woody Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn
- Former U.S. Virgin Islands first lady Cecile de Jongh, who is accused of helping Epstein get visas for his alleged victims
- Bill Gates, whose ties to Epstein have been well known for years
- FedEx board member Joshua Cooper Ramo
- Former diplomat Terje Rød-Larsen
- Edmond de Rothschild Group chairwoman Ariane de Rothschild
- Goldman Sachs general counsel Kathryn Ruemmler
- JPMorgan executive Jes Staley
- Former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers
- PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel
New York’s list also includes Prince Andrew and former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
However, Andrew and Barak’s names do in fact appear in Epstein’s black book.
In April, the Wall Street Journal reported in April that Epstein’s calendar was packed.
On one day alone, Sept. 8, 2014, he had scheduled meetings with Gates, Black, Ruemmler, and Botstein, as well as with Hyatt Hotels chairman Thomas Pritzker, media owner Mortimer Zuckerman, and adviser Barnaby Marsh.
The previously unreported documents reviewed by the Journal include thousands of pages of emails and schedules dating from 2013 to 2017.
The Times said it had obtained Epstein’s schedules “through a public records request to the attorney general for the U.S. Virgin Islands, which had sued Mr. Epstein’s estate.”
Several of the power players identified in the documents gave statements to the Journal.
The CIA said Burns “did not know anything” about Epstein and that the two had “no relationship.”
Summers said he “deeply regrets being in contact with Epstein after his  conviction.”
Meanwhile, Ruemmler said, “I regret ever knowing Jeffrey Epstein.”
A Goldman Sachs spokesperson added that Ruemmler’s relationship with Epstein was professional.
Barak acknowledged that he often met with Epstein, but never “with girls or minors, or even adult women in improper context.”
The Edmond de Rothschild Group, which had previously claimed Ariane de Rothschild had no connection to Epstein, admitted that that claim was inaccurate.
The organization said de Rothschild “was … unaware of any questions regarding his personal conduct” when she met with him.
Chomsky, meanwhile, said in an email to the Journal that his association with Epstein is “none of your business. Or anyone’s. …
“I knew him and we met occasionally,” he admitted.
“What was known about Jeffrey Epstein was that he had been convicted of a crime and had served his sentence,” Chomsky added.
“According to U.S. laws and norms, that yields a clean slate.”
Epstein’s relationship that still raises the most cause for concern, however, is his close friendship with former President Bill Clinton.
Clinton was a frequent flyer of Epstein’s private jet, the “Lolita Express.”
The plane was set up with beds and is where multiple victims have stated their abuse took place.
Clinton is also believed to have visited Epstein’s private island known as “Pedophile Island.”
The remote Carribean island is the main location for abuse as identified by Epstein’s victims.
Epstein was also a regular visitor at Clinton’s White House.
Visitor logs show Epstein visited Clinton’s White House 17 times during his presidency.
Democrat President Joe Biden’s DOJ, meanwhile, is still withholding the “client list.”
