A scathing report from the Wall Street Journal claims that numerous high-profile muckety mucks met with Jeffrey Epstein after he was convicted sex offender. A CIA director, leftist Noam Chomsky, Obama's White House counsel, and a Rothschild met with Epstein, according to a new report that cites the convicted pedophile's private calendar.
Epstein reportedly had three meetings with William Burns in 2014. At the time, Burns was deputy secretary of state before President Joe Biden appointed him as director of the Central Intelligence Agency in 2021. The WSJ exposé claimed that Burns first met Epstein in Washington, and then later visited the convicted pedophile's townhouse in Manhattan.
CIA spokesperson Tammy Kupperman Thorp said Burns met with Epstein when he was preparing to leave government service.
"The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector," Thorp said. "They had no relationship."
Epstein also met Obama White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler "dozens of times" after she left the administration but before joining Goldman Sachs as a top attorney, according to the disgraced financier's calendar. Within weeks of leaving the Obama White House, Epstein allegedly planned a lunch at his townhouse in August 2014.
A Goldman Sachs spokesperson said Epstein asked Ruemmler if she would be interested in representing Bill Gates and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In 2015, Ruemmler was scheduled to visit Epstein's private Caribbean island – Little Saint James. However, Ruemmler stated that she "never accepted an invitation or an opportunity to fly with Jeffrey Epstein anywhere."
Through a spokesperson, Ruemmler said, "I regret ever knowing Jeffrey Epstein."
Epstein allegedly connected Ruemmler with Ariane de Rothschild – a member of the infamous Rothschild family and now chief executive of the Swiss private bank Edmond de Rothschild Group. Ariane allegedly had more than a dozen meetings with Epstein.
The Rothschild family member reportedly bought nearly $1 million worth of auction items on Epstein's behalf in 2014 and 2015.
"Mrs. de Rothschild was named chairwoman of the bank in January 2015," the Wall Street Journal reported. "That October, she and Epstein negotiated a $25 million contract for Epstein’s Southern Trust Co. to provide 'risk analysis and the application and use of certain algorithms' for the bank, according to a proposal reviewed by the Journal."
Bard College President Leon Botstein "invited Epstein, who brought a group of young female guests, to the campus," according to the report.
The Wall Street Journal claimed that leftist activist Noam Chomsky was "scheduled to fly with Epstein to have dinner at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse in 2015."
Chomsky told the WSJ, "First response is that it is none of your business. Or anyone’s. Second is that I knew him and we met occasionally."
In 2014, Epstein allegedly met with Joshua Cooper Ramo – then co-chief executive of Henry Kissinger's corporate consulting firm.
The report noted, "None of their names appear in Epstein’s now-public 'black book' of contacts or in the public flight logs of passengers who traveled on his private jet."
In February, there was a report that Epstein had a very close relationship with a former top JPMorgan Chase executive and would email photos of young girls. The banking executive and Epstein referred to women that Epstein procured for Jes Staley as different Disney princesses, according to court documents.
In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution.
