OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Explosive information has come to light as the public awaits the pending release of the full “client list” kept by the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The U.S. Virgin Islands government has unsealed portions of the federal lawsuit that had previously been redacted, some of which shows former JPMorgan executive (and later Barclay CEO) Jes Staley’s relationship with Epstein.

Staley and Epstein exchanged roughly 1,000 emails between 2008 and 2012. Newly unsealed information reveals an odd exchange between Staley and Epstein, where they make references to Disney characters, according to Fox News.

“These women were trafficked and abused during different intervals between at least 2003 and July 2019, when Epstein was arrested and jailed, and these women received payments, typically multiple payments, between 2003 and 2013 in excess of $1 million collectively,” according to the unsealed passages.

In detailing the lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, the U.S. Virgins Islands noted: “Epstein also withdrew more than $775,000 in cash over that time frame from JPMorgan accounts.”

The suit also notes that “Epstein was known to pay for ‘massages,’ or sexual encounters, in cash.”

Now, the U.S. Virgin Islands are pushing for more documents to be released.

“Now, more than 20 employees at the US bank, including star managers, are having their communications scrutinized in two lawsuits, and some are set to testify under oath about their alleged involvement. As more senior staff get dragged in, lawyers for JPMorgan are trying to prevent chief executive Jamie Dimon from being deposed in the suits brought by an alleged Epstein victim and the US Virgin Islands, where the disgraced financier had a home,” the Financial Times reported.

The outlet added: “The Barclays board had backed Staley before he was forced to resign because of the emails, some of which contained unexplained references to ‘Snow White’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ while others would eventually be shown to contain what the US Virgin Islands lawsuit describes as ‘photos of young women in seductive poses.'”

Last December, then-US Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase regarding the bank’s financial dealings with Epstein, alleging that the Wall Street finance behemoth benefited from his sex trafficking escapades while subsequently failing to report suspicious activity to the authorities.

Virgin Islands Governor Bryan fired George after the lawsuit against JPMorgan was filed three months ago.

Attorneys for JPMorgan responded in court to the US Virgin Islands, alleging the territory “did nothing to stop” Epstein’s sex-trafficking operation and is deflecting blame by suing the bank for facilitating the now-dead financier’s scheme.

JPMorgan alleged in court that the Virgin Islands government “granted Epstein and his businesses lucrative privileges and massive tax incentives.”

The island’s civil action comes on the heels of lawsuits filed in December by two women against JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank who also accused Epstein of sexual abuse, claiming that the financial institutions benefitted from the late pedophile’s sex trafficking.

They accused JPMorgan of having “provided special treatment to the sex-trafficking venture, thereby ensuring its continued operation and sexual abuse and sex-trafficking of young women and girls,” the civil action stated.

“Without the financial institution’s participation, Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme could not have existed,” the lawsuit noted further.

“The time has come for the real enablers to be held responsible, especially his wealthy friends and the financial institutions that played an integral role,” Bradley Edwards, a lawyer in the case against Deutsche Bank, told The Wall Street Journal.

The outlet noted further that George’s lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase comes less than a month after she settled a separate lawsuit with Epstein’s estate for $105 million.

Epstein was found dead in his New York City jail cell in 2019. A medical examiner ruled that he died by suicide.

Previous reports noted that former President Bill Clinton hung out with Epstein far more than previously known.

Epstein allegedly visited Clinton frequently at the White House.

Unearthed visitor logs also show that Epstein visited the Clinton White House at least 17 times during Clinton’s first term in office.
