Co-conspirators: people who allegedly knew about Epstein-Maxwell sex trafficking network, helped them run the network, and/or promoted them allowing them to expand the network
Sarah Kellen, Nadia Marcinkova, Adriana Ross, Lesley Groff,
were all co-conspirators who helped run
Epstein's trafficking operation.
, influential literary agent who established Edge Foundations
and ran a scientific salon which featured prominent billionaires, scientists, artists, novelists, journalists, and musicians all mingling together and discussing topics. One of Brockman's clients, Evgeny Morozov, published an article after Epstein's death: Jeffrey Epstein’s Intellectual Enabler
which duped Brockman as Epstein's "intellectual enabler" who allowed Epstein to infiltrate the intellectual world of elites and forge so many connections and in many instances acted as his personal PR agent: the author shares an email that Brockman sent back in 2013: Jeffrey Epstein... with his beautiful young assistant from Belarus... will be in Cambridge in a couple of weeks... You are one of the people I suggested [he meet]... He also got into trouble and spent a year in jail in Florida... Last time I visited his house (the largest private residence in NYC), I walked in to find him in a sweatsuit and a British guy in a suit with suspenders, getting foot massages from two young well-dressed Russian women... At that point I realized that the recipient of Irina’s foot massage was his Royal Highness, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.
Edge Foundations received between 2001 and 2015 $638k from Epstein’s various foundations. In many of those years, Epstein was Edge’s sole donor.
influential entertainment publicist who allowed Epstein access
to the world of Hollywood elites and helped rehabilitate his image after 2008. Highly connected with NYC elite and owner of one of the top media marketing firms, she organized and hosts events such as film screenings, to which she invites prominent figures. 3 former Siegal employees describe the relationship between Siegal and Epstein as symbiotic whereby Siegal would obtain gifts from Epstein and she would allow Epstein access even after his 2008 conviction (he was seen two months after release from jail at one of her events). One ex-employee shared with THR
screenshots (mentioned in the article linked earlier) of a chat with a colleague from July 2010, in which this staffer overheard Siegal talking on the phone with Epstein. “OMFG Jeffrey Epstein”
the employee typed to her colleague. “She’s like, ‘You’re not dating anyone, right?’ And he’s like, ‘Well, I am, but you know, she’s very young.’ And she’s like, ‘Stop!’”.
Another employee believes Siegal, who primarily employs young women, was aware of Epstein as an ongoing risk. “She said to me”
this person asserts, “Make sure you stay away from Jeffrey at that [upcoming firm-hosted] party.’”
French modeling agent who was Epstein's friend and in whose modeling firm Epstein invested $1 million. He has been accused
of rape by numerous models. Virginia Roberts claimed
to have been forced to have sex with him as well and that Brunel was a key figure in Epstein's trafficking network.
Clients: people who allegedly had sexually exploited girls from Epstein-Maxwell trafficking network
, to whom Virginia Roberts and Johanna Sjoberg were trafficked, and who was a known close associate of Epstein even after his conviction in 2008. There is footage
which shows Prince Andrew in Epstein's mansion + a photo
of the prince with Virginia Roberts (when she was 17) and Ghislaine Maxwell. Prince Andrew was also seen
getting a foot massage from a young woman at Epstein's apartment.
, former Israeli prime minister with whom Virginia Roberts claims
to have been forced to have sex, and who was photographed
visiting Epstein's Manhattan townhouse (which he admitted in addition to visiting Epstein's Caribbean island but denied the rest obviously). The same cameras captured multiple girls/women leaving Epstein's townhouse within hours of the PM visiting/leaving the townhouse.
, hedge-fund billionaire who has close ties to Epstein and who Virginia Roberts alleges
was the first powerful man Ghislaine Maxwell directed her to have sex with in 2001. Glenn's wife Eva Andersson-Dubin,
a model and former Miss Sweden was Epstein's ex-girlfriend and a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell. Former house manager for the Dubins, Rinaldo Rizzo, described a horrifying 2005 encounter
when the Dubins brought a 15-year-old girl to work as a nanny, the girl was shaking and crying as she described to the house butler and his wife about her dealings with Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein's personal assistant, Sarah Kellen, in the US Virgin Islands. Maxwell pressured the girl to have sex and took her passport when she refused, threatening the girl not to speak about the incident. A month into her employ, the Dubins took the girl with them to Sweden, where she was dropped off at an airport. The couple remained close friends with Epstein even after his 2008 conviction, with Eva writing in an email to Epstein’s probation officer in 2009: "I am 100% comfortable with Jeffrey Epstein around my children”.
, the lawyer who Epstein called back in 2005 when he was made aware of the police investigation into his pedophile network. He helped Epstein negotiate his plea deal and he was also on the legal defense team of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump's regarding his impeachment. Virginia Roberts and Sarah Ransome claimed
to have been forced to have sex with him.
former US Senator and Senate Majority Leader with whom Virginia Roberts claims
to have been forced to have sex. Mitchell said
back in 2002: “I would certainly call [Epstein] a friend and a supporter.”
Epstein's black book lists
a dozen numbers for him under the heading “Piper, Rudnick,” the name of the Washington law firm where Mitchell was a partner.
, former US governor, Congressman, Secretary, and Ambassador to UN with whom Virginia Roberts alleges
she was forced to have sex. Richardson visited
Epstein’s 7,000-acre Zorro Ranch in New Mexico and Epstein donated $50k to Richardson’s 2002 and 2006 gubernatorial campaigns, and Bill Richardson's name appears in Epstein's black book.
former CTO of Microsoft
and co-founder of Intellectual Ventures,
he has been close with Epstein for years. Sources
mention Epstein visited Myhrvold’s investment firm Intellectual Ventures
, and brought along “young girls” who looked like “Russian models", and that Myhrvold spoke openly about borrowing Epstein’s private jet and staying at Epstein’s houses in Palm Beach and Manhattan. Myhrvold has also been accused of having underage sex by Alan Dershowitz, of all people.
, prominent MIT scientist with whom Virginia Roberts alleges
she was forced to have sex, and who received
a $100k research grant from Epstein in 2002, the first from Epstein to MIT. He most likely met Epstein via his literary agent, John Brockman.
, The Simpsons
creator to whom Virginia Roberts alleges
to have given a foot massage on Epstein's private jet.
Close business associates: people who had a close business relationship with Epstein/Maxwell, who probably knew/suspected about the sex trafficking network
, a billionaire corporate titan who handed Epstein sweeping powers over his finances, philanthropy and private life, authorizing Epstein to borrow money on his behalf, to sign his tax returns, to hire people and to make acquisitions
according to NYT
. The NYT article details their close relationship, and how Epstein's sexual predatory behavior goes back to him working with Wexner and how Wexner enabled him to continue without consequences.
Mohammed bin Salman,
the Saudi crown prince who Epstein mentioned
to a NYT reporter visited him many times. The NYT article linked also mentions Epstein having a framed photograph of the Saudi prince in his Manhattan mansion, in addition to other prominent figures (including figures with various sexual scandals like Woody Allen and Bill Clinton). Epstein's jet was reported
to be in Riyadh at the same time as crown prince was present on the eve of 2016 US election. Epstein also had a Saudi passport. The NYT articled linked earlier also mentions Epstein working with Elon Musk trying to get the Saudis to invest in Tesla.
, CEO, Chairman, President of Towers Financial Corporation who hired Epstein
in 1987 as a consultant for $25k a month; they traveled the world together on Hoffenberg's private jet. Hoffenberg pled guilty for running one of the biggest Ponzi scheme in US history and filed a lawsuit in 2018 calling Jeffrey Epstein as an uncharged co-conspirator who "knowingly and intentionally utilized funds he fraudulently diverted and obtained from this massive Ponzi scheme for his own personal use to support a lavish lifestyle."
Hoffenberg says that this was what propelled Epstein to obscene wealth.
, former US Treasury Secretary and president of Harvard University to which Epstein donate
at least $30 million during Summers's tenure, and Epstein was given an office at Harvard for his personal use. The two served on foreign relations advisory panels together, and Epstein's special connection with Summers was the subject of an article in 2003: Mogul Donor Gives Harvard More Than Money
, which describes Epstein cultivating a relationship with various Harvard elites.
, former director of MIT Media Lab who invited Epstein to the lab after meeting him in 2013 (after Epstein's 2008 conviction as a sex offender) and that the lab accepted money through foundations controlled by Epstein. Ito himself visited Epstein's residences, including Epstein's home in the Caribbean, twice, according to NYT
. Most likely met Epstein via his literary agent, John Brockman.
, prominent US physicist and science popularizer, who worked at ASU and was the director of Origins Project,
to which Epstein donated $250k over the years. Krauss defended
his continued relationship with Epstein in 2011 (after Epstein's 2008 conviction as a sex offender) saying: "Jeffrey has surrounded himself with beautiful women... and he always has women ages 19 to 23 around him, but I've never seen anything else...
". Krauss also was found guilty of violating
ASU sexual harassment policies in 2018 and retired after.
, multi-millionaire CEO, who was a longtime friend of Ghislaine Maxwell and in whose mansion she was allegedly hiding
at one point.
Other close associates: people who are connected to Epstein/Maxwell and who probably knew/suspected about the sex trafficking network
, Sultan and prime minister of Brunei and one of the wealthiest billionaires in the world who met
Epstein and Bill Clinton in 2002 when they traveled to Brunei in Epstein's private jet. In 1997, the Sultan was sued by a former Miss USA who said she was held as a sex slave, drugged, and molested by Brunei’s royal family. The lawsuit was dropped after the Sultan and his brother claimed diplomatic immunity. The Sultan and his brother are infamous
for their sex parties and their harems composed mainly of underage girls.
, who was a known friend and associate of Epstein. Numerous photos and videos show Trump and Epstein together at parties, especially at Mar-a-Lago. Mar-a-Lago appears to have been a key location from where Maxwell recruited some of the girls, Virginia Roberts being one of them. Virginia Roberts mentions
"I didn’t physically see him [Trump] have sex with any of the girls
" and “Donald Trump never flirted with me
”, however Trump's close relation with Epstein and some of his statements ("Epstein likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side
") seem to indicate that Trump, at the very least, was aware of / suspected Epstein's trafficking operation.
, who was a close friend of Epstein and who flew
at least 26 times with Epstein on his private jet. Virginia Roberts claimed to have seen Clinton on the island but said
"he never behaved inappropriately
", however his close relationship with Epstein and the fact that he has been to Epstein's private island and jet seems to indicate that Bill Clinton, at the very least, was aware of / suspected Epstein's trafficking operation.
, prominent American actors who flew
with Bill Clinton, Ghislaine Maxwell, and Chris Tucker on Epstein's private jet "Lolita Express" to Africa in 2002 (and, according to flight logs, the Azores). Kevin Spacey is accused by multiple people of sexual assault/harassment of minors.
, famous TV journalist and talk show host who corresponded with Epstein
dozens of times in the 2000s. Epstein gave Rose the names and phone numbers of 5 women he thought the anchor should hire as assistants, one of whom was a former Harvey Weinstein assistant. Rose hired 3 of the women Epstein recommended, one of whom would eventually be one of 34 other women to accuse Rose of sexual harassment saying: "I was being offered up for abuse”
. Rose also attended a diner headlined by Prince Andrew in Epstein's NYC mansion in 2011 after Epstein's jail release.
, US billionaire whose name is mentioned in Epstein’s black book and on Epstein’s private jet log. Burkle took trips
to Africa with Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private jet "Lolita Express". According to a 2008 Vanity Fair feature about the former president, “Burkle’s usual means of transport is the custom-converted Boeing 757 that Clinton calls ‘Ron Air’ and that Burkle’s own circle of young aides privately refer to as ‘Air F**k One.’ ”
, US attorney and former Secretary of Labor who in 2008 agreed to Epstein's controversial plea deal
, whereby Epstein was to serve only 13 months in a private wing of the county jail, permitted to leave for 12 hours a day as 'work release'; in addition the deal granted immunity to any potential co-conspirators. The plea deal shut down the ongoing FBI investigation into more potential victims and the powerful people part of Epstein's network.
I will make three additional points:
- Keep in mind that the number of pedophiles that victims were able to identify is small (the identified ones were most probably the ones who were introduced to the victims, like Prince Andrew). In fact, Virginia Roberts stated there were much more people, but she couldn't identify them. How many world leaders, politicians, CEOs, business executives, etc. would you be able to identify? Probably a very tiny portion. Underage girls especially.
- Epstein's blackmail operation probably went beyond a pedophile blackmail ring, he had potentially damaging information on non-pedophile prominent figures regarding their own illegal sexual activity (or socially unacceptable / damaging / taboo sexual activity like soliciting prostitution) and drug use. The NYT reporter who was invited by Epstein for an interview in 2018 mentions this in his article:
He also claimed to know a great deal about these [rich, famous, and powerful] people, some of it potentially damaging or embarrassing, including details about their supposed sexual proclivities and recreational drug use.
He said people in Silicon Valley had a reputation for being geeky workaholics, but that was far from the truth: They were hedonistic and regular users of recreational drugs. He said he’d witnessed prominent tech figures taking drugs and arranging for sex (Mr. Epstein stressed that he never drank or used drugs of any kind).
3) Epstein and Maxwell have dined with / socialized with / photographed with / had a business relationship with various other famous figures like Woody Allen, Mike Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Stephen Hawking, Murray Gell-Mann, Frank Wilczek, Reid Hoffman, etc. Epstein would often invite these prominent elites to lure in even more rich famous powerful people to his social circle.
It is hard to know whether they were clients of Epstein's pedophile operation, whether they knew of Epstein's operation, or whether they were totally oblivious. Many of them are one-time visitors to Epstein's island or attended a business diner with Epstein/Maxwell, or socialized at an event with Epstein/Maxwell, so I have not included them in the list of close associates. I personally think that people who visited Epstein multiple times at the very least suspected Epstein's sex trafficking operation (Epstein's accuser mentioned
: "you could not spend time around Epstein and not know what was going on
*"* because Epstein would have underage girls around him all the time; Epstein allegedly had a physical urge to rape 3 times a day at least). Even one-time visitors probably suspected something was wrong. For example
, Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Al Gore and his wife Tipper were seen on Epstein's island and were introduced to some of the underage girls. I'm not sure how these underage girls were introduced, but such a thing should be an instant red flag for anyone. Probably these rich famous people didn't care much or dismissed it because all the other rich famous people in the event would not raise the issue, an obvious instance of groupthink.
