Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao admitted in a tweet “we knew” about Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking underage girls but attended a party where Maxwell was present anyway.

“Pao, a former partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, said Maxwell was at the firm’s holiday party in 2011, more than two years after Epstein was first convicted of soliciting sex from a 14 year old,” reports Business Insider.

“[Maxwell] was at the Kleiner holiday party in 2011, but I had no desire to meet her much less have a photo taken with her,” Pao tweeted last night. “We knew about her supplying underage girls for sex, but I guess that was fine with the ‘cool’ people who managed the tightly controlled guest list.”

As Mike Cernovich notes, Al Gore was also at the event where no spouses were allowed.

After Pao was asked to elaborate on her tweet, she placed her Twitter account on lockdown.

After her tweet garnered media attention, Pao tried to clarify it ny noting that Maxwell had been accused by victims of taking part in the abuse as early as March 2011.

“To be clear, the press had described her as supplying underage girls for sex, but she had not been charged so I guess it would be more accurate to say we ‘suspected’ v ‘knew,'” said Pao in a follow up tweet.

When another Twitter user accused Pao of appearing to be “fine” with it, Pao responded, “What I said made no difference here.”

During that period, Jeffrey Epstein had been keen on pursuing relationships with Big Tech leaders and dined with the likes of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Google cofounder Sergey Brin in March 2011.

Epstein also met with Microsoft founder Bill Gates multiple times following Epstein’s first conviction for sex crimes in 2008.

Maxwell is currently in prison after being arrested by federal agents on Thursday at her secretive New Hampshire home.

According to reports, she may be willing to give up information on big names who were complicit in Epstein’s activities in exchange for a plea deal, although Epstein was reportedly willing to do the same and was found dead less than a month later.

Video: Bill Gates Again Acts Weird When Asked Directly About Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein

Why is he smirking?

Published

Bill Gates was once again asked directly by a reporter about his history with now deceased elite pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and once again Gates reacted oddly.

In an interview with ABC Australia, the reporter Sarah Ferguson went there, asking Gates if he has regrets consistently meeting with Epstein in the past “against [his wife] Melinda’s advice and wishes.”

“You’re going way back in time, but yeah, I will say it for the over 100th time, yeah, I shouldn’t have had dinners with him,” Gates responded with an odd smile.

“Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people. Is that what Melinda was warning you about?” Ferguson followed up, as Gates appeared unconfortable at the line of questioning.

“No, I mean its… No, I had dinner with him, and that’s all,” Gates awkwardly responded.

When Ferguson asked Gates if he regretted the “relationship” between the Gates Foundation and Epstein, Gates dismissed the notion, stating “There never was any relationship of any kind.”

Watch:

Odd that, because Gates had several meetings with Epstein, and flew on Epstein’s notorious ‘Lolita Express’ private jet.

The New Yorker also revealed in 2019 that Epstein worked with Gates to funnel $2 million dollars to MIT for unspecified projects, donations that the research lab tried to cover up.

All of this happened five years AFTER the sex trafficker was convicted of soliciting a minor.

Melinda Gates is on record as saying “I did not like that [Bill] had meetings with Jeffery Epstein. I made that clear to him. I also met Jeffery Epstein exactly one time. I wanted to see who this man was and I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door.”

“He was abhorrent, evil personified,” Gates’ now ex-wife told CBS mornings host Gayle King, adding “I had nightmares about it afterward. That’s why my heart breaks for these young women. That’s how I felt, and I am an older woman. He was awful.”

Last time Gates was asked about Epstein he fixated on the fact that “he’s dead now.”

While in Australia Gates was present at the Australian Open Tennis tournament, where he watched Novak Djokovic storm to victory.

    Virgin Islands AG Fired Three Days After Suing JPMorgan Over Jeffrey Epstein

    Published

    As we noted last week, US Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan for allegedly reaping financial benefits from Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation – less than a month after George secured a $105 million settlement with Epstein’s estate, which agreed to liquidate Epstein’s islands and cease all business operations in the region.

    Three days later, George is now unemployed, after Governor Albert A. Bryan Jr. fired her for allegedly filing the suit against JPMorgan without his permission.

    New Documents Reveal Alleged Epstein Victim Claimed To Have Copies Of ‘Blackmail’ Sex Tapes He Made Of Associates

    According to the complaint, for “Over more than a decade, JPMorgan clearly knew it was not complying with federal regulations in regard to Epstein-related accounts as evidenced by its too-little too-late efforts after Epstein was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges and shortly after his death, when JPMorgan belatedly complied with federal law.”

    It goes much deeper than just the JPMorgan lawsuit…

    The suit against JPMorgan Chase was not the whole scope of George’s pursuit of the remnants of Epstein’s network of conspirators. Although Little St. James (“Pedo Island”) and its adjacent island owned by the Epstein estate went up for salein March 2022, action taken by George kept the premise of any sale from going through. Acting in her former capacity as US Virgin Island Attorney General, she placed criminal activity liens on the islands from a civil racketeering lawsuit. That lawsuit was filed in 2020 following Epstein’s “death” in August of 2019. The suit alleged that Little St. James Island was used as part of a network of shell companies that Epstein manipulated to conceal the activities of his human trafficking network.

    However, that suit was settled between the Epstein estate and George’s office in early December 2022. Under the agreement, Epstein’s estate would pay over $105 million to the Government of the US Virgin Islands as restitution. In addition to that sum, the liens preventing the sale of Epstein’s islands become removed under the condition that half of the proceeds from the sale will also be given to the US Virgin Islands through a trust it has opened to allocate the money to fund government programs to fight sexual abuse on the archipelago. “This settlement restores the faith of the People of the Virgin Islands that its laws will be enforced, without fear or favor, against those who break them. We are sending a clear message that the Virgin Islands will not serve as a haven for human trafficking,” Attorney General George stated upon the announcement of the settlement in one of her last acts before being fired.

    Despite the resolution of the US Virgin Islands’ direct case against the assets held by the Epstein estate, questions still linger about its operations in George’s jurisdiction. 

    One of the most mysterious and perhaps most vital to examine of those shell companies, Southern Country International, was the first internationally operating bank to be opened in the US Virgin Islands by Epstein in 2014. The bank opened when John Percy de Jongh Jr. served as the governor of the territory. During his term, de Jongh appointed present-governor Albert A. Bryan Jr. into his administration as Commissioner of the US Virgin Islands Department of Labor. Despite not having much activity on its books, Southern Country International would renew its license with the US Virgin Islands five times before Epstein’s purported demise.

    By the time Epstein died, his Virgin Islands based bank had less than $700,000 in assets. However, in December of 2019, months after his purported suicide, Epstein’s estate transferred a whopping $15.5 million into Southern Country International. In under a month, the bank’s assets diminished to less than $500,000. Mark Epstein, Jeffrey’s brother and executor of his estate, stated that the bank was used to pay existing debts of the assets he had control over. Though the bank was not explicitly referenced in the press release on the December settlement, that announcement does detail the Virgin Islands action against Southern Trust Company, a holding company which points to a larger scale of Epstein owned enterprises connected to Southern Country International. It is unclear how the allegations made in George’s lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase connect to the posthumous activity conducted by Epstein’s Virgin Islands banking operation.

    Following her dismissal, Assistant Attorney General Carol Thomas-Jacobs has been named to an interim position to fill George’s vacated seat. She will inherit the office as it joins an on-going list of plaintiffs who have taken action against large scale banks relating to their accounts with Epstein. Just over a month before George’s filing, multiple class action suits were filed against JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank alleging each institution knowingly profited from Epstein’s criminal activity. Those suits coincided with another filed against Epstein associate Leon Black, the billionaire who previously served as CEO of Apollo Global Management before his relationship with the pedophile thrust him into the spotlight.

    The civil suit against Black alleges that the disgraced financier raped the plaintiff in 2002 at a mansion owned by Epstein. A spokesman for Black told Forbes that the claims made against their client were “categorically” false. Their response to Forbes follows one of a similar like from Deutsche Bank who told the publication that the suit filed against them “lacks merit.” Despite the magnitude of these lawsuits, the gravity of George’s suit against JPMorgan Chase surely made the biggest splash in the once-stagnant waters of the cesspool of the Epstein debacle. However, the firing leaves little hope that the waves caused by her last act as Attorney General will wash any truth to shore.

    New Documents Reveal Alleged Epstein Victim Claimed To Have Copies Of ‘Blackmail’ Sex Tapes He Made Of Associates

    Expressed desire to “walk away from this” after threats to her safety

    An alleged victim of the deceased elite pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has claimed that she has digital copies of ‘blackmail’ sex tapes Epstein made of his associates.

    Not one of Epstein’s ‘clients’ has been named since his mysterious death or during the sex trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, yet unsealed documents from Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit against Maxwell have revealed that another accuser, Sarah Ransome (pictured above earlier this year at Maxwell’s sentencing), says she stashed away in secret locations copies of sordid tapes recorded by Epstein.

    An email from Ransome reads “When my friend had sexual intercourse with [redacted] and [redacted], sex tapes were in fact filmed on each occasion by Jeffrey,”

    The email, apparently addressed to New York Post reporter Maureen Callahan, continues “Thank God she managed to get ahold of some footage of the filmed sex tapes which clearly identify the faces of [redacted] and [redacted] having sexual intercourse with her. Frustratingly enough Epstein was not seen in any of the footage but he was clever like that.”

    “I will be more than willing to swear under oath and testify in court over these sex tapes,” Ransome further declared, adding that she had told someone close to her where to find the back up copies of the videos “in case anything happens to me before the footage is released.”

    In the email, released after a judge ordered documents to be unsealed last month, Ransome also claims that the friend who provided her with the footage was “humiliated” by police after she attempted to expose the crimes, and then a redacted authority “heavily intimidated her, roughed her up,” and forced her to keep quiet.

    Ransome also notes that her friend was “1000% certain that the FBI did a cover-up” and that someone, again redacted, had threatened to kill her. She also suggested that the lives of those close to her were in danger and that the CIA was hacking her communications.

    In a further email to the reporter, Ransome suddenly seemed to lose interest in being involved, stating that she would “like to retract everything I have said to you and walk away from this,” reasoning that she feared for her safety.

     “I wish you the best of luck on catching Epstein and company,” Ransome wrote.

    It has long been thought that Epstein and Maxwell made videos of sexual encounters between the women they were trafficking and elite associates as a form of insurance for themselves. Both Virginia Guiffre and Maria Farmer, another alleged victim, have said this was the case.

    There was speculation that both Epstein and Maxwell would reveal names as part of a plea deal. Of course, Epstein never made it out of jail, and Maxwell likely knew she wouldn’t either if she said anything.

    Both Guiffre and Farmer recently dropped their cases against Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, with Giuffre saying she made a ‘mistake’ in accusing Dershowitz of sexual abuse.

    Giuffre also accepted an out of court settlement from UK royal Prince Andrew, thought to be worth $12 million.
