Jeffrey Epstein's Society Friends Close Ranks thebea.st/VqKRC3?source=…
12/2/10
A handful of America's media and entertainment elite—including TV anchors Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos, comedienne Chelsea Handler, and director Woody Allen—convened around the dinner table of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Epstein had completed a 13-month sentence that spring for soliciting prostitution from a minor in Palm Beach. Now he was hosting a party for his close friend, Britain's Prince Andrew, fourth in line to the throne.
British press seized on the story, spinning out weeks of headlines about the 16-year relationship between Epstein and Andrew, with salacious details of underage "masseuses" and even a cozy weekend in Balmoral.
Members of parliament began calling for Prince Andrew's resignation as Britain's trade envoy, and when another photo surfaced of Andrew and a 17-year-old concubine Epstein had allegedly "loaned" him, even Britain's business secretary wouldn't confirm the royal could keep his role
But the story mysteriously drowned in the Mid-Atlantic.

“A jail sentence doesn’t matter anymore. The only thing that gets you shunned in New York society is poverty.”
Sure enough, that night in 2010 no one mentioned that Epstein had just doled out millions of dollars in civil settlements to 7 girls who allege that he paid them to perform erotic massages & sexual acts when they were underage. They are among the 40 victims turned up by the FBI.
But at the time, this particular swath of Epstein's elite Rolodex had no idea that the Prince would soon renounce Epstein as a friend, nor that the royal's ex-wife, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, would hysterically apologize for letting Epstein pay off some of her debts.
Former Bear Stearns CEO James Cayne had just endorsed Epstein on his science foundation's website (which has been since removed).
"I've never condoned paying for sex, but if [she] lied about her age it's her own fault," said one socialite, who along w WILBUR ROSS &
LEON BLACK hobnobbed w EPSTEIN at a Southampton movie screening just 2 mos after his release from "community control" in Fl.

You don't say...
Much of Epstein's entrée into NY society can be credited to Ghislaine Maxwell, the well-connected daughter of the late press magnate (Soviet Intel asset) Robert Maxwell. Epstein started dating her in the 90s. The relationship ended but they remain close.
2 victims had just publicly alleged that Ghislaine procured them for Epstein, one at 15 from a Mar-a-Lago locker room. Virginia Roberts, who was Epstein's sex slave for several yrs said "Ghislaine sent me... for Brazilian waxes. He wanted me to look pre-pubescent."
NY friends were suddenly hesitant to talk about Maxwell. "She's a high-end 'fixer'," so what?

"No one in café society gives a damn that a 15yr old girl gives massages," says one frequent charity-benefit guest.

"She gets people into parties and runs around for a lot of people."
As to the fallout from her association with Epstein, he says,

"If you're Mike HUCKABEE it would matter but not if you're Ghislaine Maxwell."

Hmph...🤔
Top publicist Peggy Siegal has organized for Epstein, "I and many others that know him describe him as brilliant," says Siegal.

"His unique mind is what attracts the world's smartest people to his home."

No honey..not really.
Sept 2010 with Siegal's help, Epstein hosted a Break Fast after Yom Kippur. A group of 120 friends brought their children over for a buffet dinner.

One attendee, JONATHAN FARKAS, a New York real-estate heir, has known Epstein for 35 years and visited him while he was in prison
"The side I've been reading about is a side I don't know," he says. Farkas considers Epstein one of the smartest people he knows and often asks him for investment advice. "Unless I've seen it, I don't focus on it," he says.
"From a cerebral &business side he's worshipped," says socialite Debbie Bancroft. "He's incredibly charming & handsome. 🤮 I can see why people don't want to believe what they hear. If people come out of jail and are still successful, people are very forgiving, shockingly so."
Renowned scientists whose research Epstein has generously funded through the years also stand by him. (Duh🙄)

Prof Lawrence Krauss, a theoretical physicist has planned scientific conferences with Epstein in St. Thomas and remained close with him throughout his incarceration.
"Jeffrey has surrounded himself with beautiful...young women but they're not as young as the ones that were claimed. As a scientist I always judge things on empirical evidence and he always has women ages 19 to 23 around him..."

(Reminder, male scientists have penises.)
Though colleagues have criticized him over his relationship with Epstein, Krauss insists, "I don't feel tarnished in any way by my relationship with Jeffrey; I feel raised by it."

Case in point.
