Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel recently called Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers a ‘conspiracy theorist’ after he publicly called for releasing the names on the latest financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s client list.
But now, it has been revealed that Kimmel was friends with former Epstein chef Adam Perry Lang, a revelation that “was uncovered by internet sleuths and amplified by The Daily Wire’s Brett Cooper,” according to The Post Millennial.
Several posts on Kimmel’s Instagram show Lang, including a recent one in which they are seen behind the scenes at the Oscars and another one where they gathered for Super Bowl Sunday last month. And in a 2019 Eater report, Lang confirmed that he worked for the convicted sex offender in the early 2000s.
“Almost 20 years ago, as a young chef I was hired to work for Jeffrey Epstein,” Land said in a statement to Eater. “My role was limited to meal preparation. I was unaware of the depraved behavior and have great sympathy and admiration for the brave women who have come forward.”
Unsealed court records revealed that pilot David Roger testified to flying Lang and Epstein on his private jet multiple times in 2000 and 2001, in relation to Virginia Giuffre’s allegations against Epstein. According to flight logs, the chef accompanied Epstein on trips to the Virgin Islands, Santa Fe, and Palm Beach.
As per Eater, the pilot also claimed that Lang had occasionally stayed at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse on East 71st street, and at times had traveled with the pilot and his crew “to or from the airport.”
The Post Millennial added:
In December 2020, the pilot said Lang flew with Epstein, Giuffre, MIT professor Marvin Minsky, and Maxwell from Teterboro to the Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned the small island of Little Saint James.
In a September 2020 episode of the podcast Broken: Seeking Justice hosted by journalist Tara Palmeri, it was revealed that Giuffre had attempted to reach Lang about what he may have witnessed while working for Epstein, according to Eater.
Lang told the podcast in a statement that he never witnessed any sexual activity or nudity, and was unaware of any underage girls.
During her podcast, Cooper aired a clip showing Kimmel ridiculing “tin foil hatters” over recent UFO revelations before tying that into Rodgers’ comments about Epstein’s list during an interview on someone else’s podcast last month.
Last year, Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite, was convicted of conspiring with Jeffrey Epstein to recruit, groom, and abuse underage girls.
Maxwell, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence, was eventually moved to a low-security prison in Tallahassee, Florida, the Daily Mail first reported.
Maxwell will be eligible for release on July 17, 2037.
“The disgraced socialite has been moved to FCI Tallahassee, a low-security prison in the Sunshine State, near where she committed her crimes. The choice of prison by the BOP is against the recommendation of Judge Alison Nathan, who oversaw Maxwell’s trial for recruiting and trafficking underage girls for the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Judge Nathan asked the BOP – following a request from Maxwell’s lawyers – to send her to FCI Danbury in Connecticut,” the Daily Mail reported.
“However, the BOP has ultimate authority and decided against sending Maxwell there. Despite this Maxwell, 60, will likely welcome the news as she has complained bitterly about her treatment at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where she has been held since her arrest in July 2020,” the outlet added.
In June, U.S. Circuit Judge Alison Nathan sentenced Maxwell to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking. “The guideline range applicable is 188 to 235 months imprisonment,” Judge Nathan said.
Maxwell’s behavior was “heinous and predatory,” Nathan noted in his ruling, adding that she worked with Epstein to select “young victims who were vulnerable.”
“The damage done to these young girls was incalculable,” Nathan said, not only of their abuse at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell but also by having to testify about it and endure “zealous cross-examination.”
