The Talented Mr. Epstein

Lately, Jeffrey Epstein’s high-flying style has been drawing oohs & aahs: the bachelor financier lives in New York’s largest private residence, claims to take only billionaires as clients, & flies celebrities... #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
2) including Bill Clinton & Kevin Spacey on his Boeing 727. But pierce his air of mystery & the picture changes. Vicky Ward explores Epstein’s investment career, his ties to retail magnate Leslie Wexner, & his complicated past. wexnerfoundation.org/about-us/lesli… #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
3) On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, home to some of the most expensive real estate on earth, exists a crown jewel of the city’s residential town houses. Leslie Wexner turned over the home to Epstein for $1, (some say) which he then renovated for $10M. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
4) With its 15-foot-high oak door, huge arched windows, and nine (Curbed says 7) floors, it sits on—or, rather, commands—the block of 71st Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
5) Almost ludicrously out of proportion with its four & five-story neighbors, it seems more like an institution than a house. This is perhaps not surprising-until 1989 it was the Birch Wathen private school. Now it is said to be Manhattan’s largest private residence. #QANON #MAGA
6) Inside, amid a flurry of menservants attired in sober black suits & pristine white gloves, you feel you have stumbled into someone’s private Xanadu. This is no mere rich person’s home, but a high-walled, eclectic, imperious fantasy seeming to have no boundaries. #QANON #MAGA
7) The entrance hall is decorated not with paintings but with row upon row of individually framed eyeballs; these, the owner tells people with relish, were imported from England, where they were made for injured soldiers. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
8) Next comes a marble foyer, which does have a painting, in the manner of Jean Dubuffet … but the host coyly refuses to tell visitors who painted it. In any case, guests are like pygmies next to the nearby twice-life-size sculpture of a naked African warrior. #QANON #MAGA
9) Despite its eccentricity the house is curiously impersonal, the statement of someone who wants to be known for the scale of his possessions. Its occupant, financier Jeffrey Epstein, 50, admits to friends that he likes it when people think of him this way. #QANON #MAGA
10) A good-looking man, resembling Ralph Lauren, with thick gray-white hair and a weathered face, he usually dresses in jeans, knit shirts, and loafers. He tells people he bought the house because he knew he “could never live anywhere bigger.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
11) He thinks 51,000 square feet is an appropriately large space for someone like himself, who deals mostly in large concepts—especially large sums of money. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
12) Guests are invited to lunch or dinner at the town house—Epstein usually refers to the former as “tea,” since he likes to eat bite-size morsels and drink copious quantities of Earl Grey. (He does not touch alcohol or tobacco.) #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
13) Tea is served in the “leather room,” so called because of the cordovan-colored fabric on the walls. The chairs are covered in a leopard print, & on the wall hangs a huge, Oriental fantasy of a woman holding an opium pipe and caressing a snarling lionskin. #QANON #MAGA
14) Under her gaze, plates of finger sandwiches are delivered to Epstein & guests by the menservants in white gloves. Upstairs, to the right of a spiral staircase, is the “office,” an enormous gallery spanning the width of the house. Strangely, it holds no computer. #QANON #MAGA
15) Computers belong in the “computer room” (a smaller room at the back of the house), Epstein has been known to say. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
16) The office features a gilded desk (which Epstein tells people belonged to banker J. P. Morgan), 18th-century black lacquered Portuguese cabinets, and a nine-foot ebony Steinway “D” grand. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
17) On the desk, a paperback copy of the Marquis de Sade’s The Misfortunes of Virtue was recently spotted. Covering the floor, Epstein explained, “is the largest Persian rug you’ll ever see in a private home—so big, it must have come from a mosque.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
18) Amid such splendor, much of which reflects the work of French decorator Alberto Pinto, who worked for Jacques Chirac and royal families of Jordan & Saudi Arabia, there is one particularly startling oddity: a stuffed black poodle, standing atop the grand piano. #QANON #MAGA
19) “No decorator would ever tell you to do that,” Epstein brags to visitors. “But I want people to think what it means to stuff a dog.” People can’t help but feel it’s Epstein’s way of saying that he always has the last word. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
20) In addition to the town house, Epstein lives in what is reputed to be the largest private dwelling in New Mexico @ 26,700sf, on an $18 million, 7,500-acre ranch which he named “Zorro.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKEING Governor King sold Epstein this land. bizapedia.com/nm/zorro-ranch…
21) Epstein’s Zorro Ranch in Santa Fe County is on land he purchased from the family of former Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Gary King.
Epstein made news previously in New Mexico. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
22) He twice attempted to contribute to King’s campaigns, but King returned the money. King received $15,000 from Epstein in 2006 when King first ran for attorney general and $35,000 from companies connected to Epstein for his gubernatorial campaign this year. #QANON #MAGA
23) Also in 2006, Epstein gave $50,000 to the re-election campaign of then-Gov. Bill Richardson. Richardson said then he’d give the money he received from an Epstein-affiliated company, Zorro Trust, to local charities. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
24) Epstein est a charity called "Gratitude America Ltd. In 2016 & 2017, Gratitude America Ltd. funded an all-girls school in Manhattan, a youth tennis program, cancer charities, Harvard’s famous theater troupe: Hasty Pudding.. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING bigdatabase.com/Big-DB/USFound…
25) ...posh New York arts societies at Lincoln Center and the Met, and a nonprofit linked to the wife of a former Harvard president who flew on Epstein’s private jet, dubbed the “Lolita Express” by the press. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
26) In 2016, Gratitude America Ltd. shelled out $110,000 to Verse Video Education. The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based nonprofit produces the PBS show Poetry in America, whose creator and host is Harvard professor Elisa New. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING verse.com
27) Verse’s 2016 tax return named New as the group’s president but doesn’t include specific donors for its $1.38 million in total contributions. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
28) New is married to Summers, Harvard University’s former president, who hobnobbed with Epstein in elite international relations groups and, like Bill Clinton, flew on Epstein’s private jet. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING harvard.edu/about-harvard/…
29) Vanity Fair’s 2003 feature mentions Epstein proudly displaying Summers’ letter of commitment to “the Epstein Program for Mathematical Biology and Evolutionary Dynamics” at Harvard. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING stage.edge.org/memberbio/jeff…
30) Epstein “says he was reluctant to have his name attached to the program, but Summers persuaded him,” the article said. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
31) Mr. Epstein is a former member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York Academy of Science and a former Rockefeller University Board Member. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
32) Epstein owns Little St. James, a 70-acre island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the main house was renovated by Edward Tuttle, a designer of the Amanresorts. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING

Was Epstein a CIA dark asset / blackmailer of foreign governments? Time will tell.
33) There is also a $6.8 million house in Palm Beach, Florida, & a fleet of aircraft. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING According to a rather lurid Daily Beast article published in 2010, a police search of the property turned up:
34) Large, framed photos of nude young girls, and similar images... stashed in an armoire and on the computers seized at the house (although police found only bare cables where other computers had been). #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
35) Some bathrooms were stocked with soap in the shape of sex organs, and various sex toys, such as a "twin torpedo" vibrator, cream, & lubricants available at erotic specialty shops, stowed near the massage tables set up in several rooms upstairs. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
36) Epsteins fleet of aircraft include: a Gulfstream IV, a helicopter, & a Boeing 727, replete with trading room. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
37) Epstein flew President Clinton, actors Chris Tucker & Kevin Spacey, supermarket magnate Ron Burkle, Lew Wasserman’s grandson, Casey Wasserman, & a few others, on a mission exploring problems of AIDS & economic development in Africa. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
38) Epstein is charming, but he doesn’t let the charm slip into his eyes. They are steely and calculating, giving some hint at the steady whir of machinery running behind them. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
39) “Let’s play chess,” he said to me, after refusing to give an interview for this article. “You be white. You get the first move.” It was an appropriate metaphor for a man who seems to feel he can win no matter what the advantage of the other side. #QANON #MAGA
40) His advantage is that no one really seems to know him or his history completely or what his arsenal actually consists of. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
41) He has carefully engineered it so that he remains one of the few truly baffling mysteries among New York’s moneyed world. People know snippets, but few know the whole. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
42) “He’s very enigmatic,” says Rosa Monckton, the former C.E.O. of Tiffany & Co. in the U.K. and a close friend since the early 1980s. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-ne…
Ties to Princess Diana burying Rosa's Stillborn Baby...
43) Rosa Monckton also has a daughter with Down's syndrome: Domenica. thetimes.co.uk/article/parent… Recently won a ruling on a right to act for disabled children.
44) rosamonckton.com/index.php/home/ Rosa also authored three documentariess on BBC1 on various aspects of disability. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
45) Even acquaintances sense a curious dichotomy: Yes, he lives like a “modern maharaja,” as Leah Kleman, one of his art dealers, puts it. Yet he is fastidiously, almost obsessively private—he lists himself in the phone book under a pseudonym. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
46) He rarely attends society gatherings or weddings or funerals; he considers eating in restaurants like “eating on the subway”—i.e., something he’d never do. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
47) There are many women in his life, mostly young, but there is no one of them to whom he has been able to commit. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #EPSTEINARREST
48) He describes his most public companion of the last decade, Ghislaine Maxwell, 41, the daughter of the late, disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell, as simply his “best friend.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
49) He says she is not on his payroll, but she seems to organize much of his life—recently she was making telephone inquiries to find a California-based yoga instructor for him. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
50) Epstein is still close to his two other long-term girlfriends, Paula Heil Fisher instagram.com/p.h.fisher/, a former associate of his at the brokerage firm Bear Stearns and now an opera producer, and Eva Andersson Dubin, a doctor and onetime model. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
Paula Heil Fisher seems to have either deleted her old stuff from pre-2014 or she perhaps joined Instagram around then... #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #EPSTEINARREST
52) He tells people that when a relationship is over the girlfriend “moves up, not down,” to friendship status.) #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING

Moving on up, to employee? #EPSTEINARREST
53) Some of the businessmen who dine with him at his home—they include newspaper publisher Mort Zuckerman, banker Louis Ranieri (Time's 25), Revlon chairman Ronald Perelman, real-estate tycoon Leon Black,... #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
54) ...former Microsoft executive, now chef, Nathan Myhrvold, Tom Pritzker (of Hyatt Hotels), and real-estate personality Donald Trump—sometimes seem not all that clear as to what he actually does to earn his millions. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
55) Certainly, you won’t find Epstein’s transactions written about on Bloomberg or talked about in trading rooms. “The trading desks don’t seem to know him. It’s unusual for animals that big not to leave any footprints in the snow,” says a high-level investment manager. #QANON
56) Unlike such fund managers as George Soros & Stanley Druckenmiller, whose client lists and stock maneuverings act as their calling cards, Epstein keeps all his deals & clients secret, bar one client: billionaire Leslie Wexner, the respected chairman of Limited Brands. #QANON
57) Epstein insists that ever since he left Bear Stearns in 1981 he has managed money only for billionaires—who depend on him for discretion. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
58) “I was the only person crazy enough, or arrogant enough, or misplaced enough, to make my limit a billion dollars or more,” he tells people freely. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
59) According to him, the flat fees he receives from his clients, combined with his skill at playing the currency markets “with very large sums of money,” have afforded him the lifestyle he enjoys today. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
60) Why do billionaires choose him as their trustee? Because the problems of the mega-rich, he tells people, are different from yours & mine, & his unique philosophy is central to understanding those problems:.. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
61) "Very few people need any more money when they have a billion dollars. The key is not to have it do harm more than anything else…. You don’t want to lose your money.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
62) He has likened his job to that of an architect—more specifically, one who specializes in remodeling: “I always describe [a billionaire] as someone who started out in a small home and as he became wealthier had add-ons. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #EPSTEINARREST
63) He added on another addition, he built a room over the garage…until you have a house that is usually a mess. It’s a large house that has been put together over time where no one could foretell the financial future & accompanying needs.” #QANON #MAGA

Fixer anyone? - Declas
64) He makes it sound as though his job combines roles of real-estate agent, accountant, lawyer, money manager, trustee, & confidant. But, as with Jay Gatsby, myths and rumor swirl around Epstein. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
65) Here are some of the hard facts about Epstein—ones that he doesn’t mind people knowing: He grew up middle-class in Brooklyn. His father worked for the city’s parks department. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
66) His parents viewed education as “the way out” for him & his younger brother, Mark, now working in real estate. Jeffrey started to play the piano—for which he maintains a passion—at five, & he went to Brooklyn’s Lafayette High School. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
67) He was good at mathematics, & in his early 20s he got a job teaching physics and math at Dalton, the elite Manhattan private school. While there he began tutoring the son of Bear Stearns chairman Ace Greenberg and was friendly with a daughter of Greenberg’s. #QANON #MAGA
69) Wife of the late Alan Greenberg: opengovus.com/new-york-state… Kathryn Olson Greenberg, still a lawyer today who is also a trustee of the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
70) Soon he went to Bear Stearns, where, under the mentorship of both Greenberg and current Bear Stearns C.E.O. James Cayne, he did well enough to become a limited partner—a rung beneath full partner. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
71) He abruptly departed in 1981 because, he has said, he wanted to run his own business. Thereafter the details recede into shadow. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
72) A few of the handful of current friends who have known him since the early 1980s recall that he used to tell them he was a “bounty hunter,” recovering lost or stolen money for the government or for very rich people. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #EPSTEINARREST
CIA Operative???
73) He has a license to carry a firearm. For the last 15 years, he’s been running his business, J. Epstein & Co. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
74) Since Leslie Wexner appeared in his life—Epstein has said this was in 1986; others say it was in 1989, at the earliest—he has gradually, in a way that has not generally made headlines, come to be accepted by the Establishment. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
75) He’s a member of various commissions and councils: he is on the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the Institute of International Education. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING (#2 article)
76) His fan club extended to Cayne, Henry Rosovsky, the former dean of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and Larry Summers, Harvard’s ex president. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
77) Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says, “I’m on my 20th book…. The only person outside of my immediate family that I send drafts to is Jeffrey.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
78) Real-estate developer and philanthropist Marshall Rose, who has worked with Epstein on projects in New Albany, Ohio, for Wexner, says, “He digests and decodes the information very rapidly, which is to me terrific because we have shorter meetings.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
79) I included Mouldy Locks (Rose Marshall) because Marshall Rose reminded me of her. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING Looks kind of like Chloe Malle.
80) Also on the list of admirers are former senator George Mitchell and a gaggle of distinguished scientists, most of whom Epstein has helped fund in recent years. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
81) They include Nobel Prize winners Gerald Edelman, Murray Gell-Mann, and mathematical biologist Martin Nowak. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
82) When these men describe Epstein, they talk about “energy” & “curiosity,” as well as a love for theoretical physics that they don’t ordinarily find in laymen. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
83) Gell-Mann rather sweetly mentions that “there are always pretty ladies around” when he goes to dinner chez Epstein, and he’s under the impression that Epstein’s clients include the Queen of England. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
84) Both Nowak and Dershowitz were thrilled to find themselves shaking the hand of a man named “Andrew” in Epstein’s house. “Andrew” turned out to be Prince Andrew, who subsequently arranged to sit in the back of Dershowitz’s law class. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
85) Takinga break, but read a good article on Epstein's money moving and charitable giving...surprisingly from the Daily Beast.

86) Epstein gets annoyed when anyone suggests that Wexner “made him.” “I had really rich clients before,” he has said. Yet he does not deny that he and Wexner have a special relationship. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
87) Epstein sees it as a partnership of equals. “People have said it’s like we have one brain between two of us: each has a side.” “I think we both possess the skill of seeing patterns,” says Wexner. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
88) “But Jeffrey sees patterns in politics and financial markets, and I see patterns in lifestyle and fashion trends. My skills are not in investment strategy, and, as everyone who knows Jeffrey knows, his are not in fashion and design. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
89) We frequently discuss world trends as each of us sees them.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
90) By the time Epstein met Wexner, the latter was a retail legend who had built a $3 billion empire—one that now includes Victoria’s Secret, Express, & Bath & Body Works—from $5,000 lent him by his aunt. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
91) “Wexner saw in Jeffrey the type of person who had the potential to realize his [Jeffrey’s] dreams,” says someone who has worked closely with both men. “He gave Jeffrey the ball, and Jeffrey hit it out of the park.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
92) Wexner, through a trust, bought the town house in which Epstein now lives for a reported $13.2 million in 1989. In 1993, Wexner married Abigail Koppel, a 31-year-old lawyer, and the newlyweds relocated to Ohio; in 1996, Epstein moved into the town house. #QANON #MAGA
93) Public documents suggest that the house is still owned by the trust that bought it, but Epstein has said that he now owns the house. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
94) Wexner trusts Epstein so completely that he has assigned him the power of fiduciary over all of his private trusts & foundations, says a source close to Wexner. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
95) In 1992, Epstein even persuaded Wexner to put him on the board of the Wexner Foundation in place of Wexner’s ailing mother. Bella Wexner recovered and demanded to be reinstated. Epstein has said they settled by splitting the foundation in two. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
96) Epstein does not care that he comes between family members. In fact, he sees it as his job. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
97) He tells people, “I am there to represent my client, and if my client needs protecting—sometimes even from his own family—then it’s often better that people hate me, not the client.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #EPSTEINARREST
98) “You’ve probably heard I’m vicious in my representation of my clients,” he tells people proudly; Leah Kleman describes his haggling over art prices as something like a scene out of the movie Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING thecitadelle.org/our-story/
100) One reporter, in fact, received three threats from Epstein while preparing a piece. They were delivered in a jocular tone, but the message was clear: There will be trouble for your family if I don’t like the article. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
101) On the other hand, Epstein is clearly very generous with friends. Joe Pagano, an Aspen-based venture capitalist, who has known Epstein since before his Bear Stearns days, can’t say enough nice things: #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
102) Joseph K. Pagano has flied on Epstein's Lolita Express as well as many others. Joseph K Pagano (born 1944) is listed at ### N S####### Dr Aspen, Co 81611 and has no political party affiliation. He is a male registered to vote in Pitkin County, Colorado. #QANON #MAGA
103) Joe Pagano: "I have a boy who’s dyslexic, & Jeffrey’s gotten close to him over the years. Jeffrey got him into music. He bought him his first piano. And then as he got to school he had difficulty in studying so Jeffrey got him interested in taking flying lessons.” #QANON
104) Rosa Monckton recalls Epstein telling her that her daughter, Domenica, who suffers from Down syndrome, needed the sun, and that Rosa should feel free to bring her to his house in Palm Beach anytime. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #ROSAMONCKTON #PRINCESSDIANA #EPSTEINARREST
105) Some friends remember that in the late 80s Epstein would offer to upgrade the airline tickets of good friends by affixing first-class stickers; the only problem was that the stickers turned out to be unofficial. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
106) Sometimes the technique worked, but other times it didn’t, and the unwitting recipients found themselves exiled to coach. (Epstein has claimed that he paid for the upgrades, and had no knowledge of the stickers.) #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
107) Many of those who benefited from Epstein’s largesse claim that his generosity comes with no strings attached. “I never felt he wanted anything from me in return,” says one old friend, who received a first-class upgrade. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
108) Epstein is known about town as a man who loves women—lots of them, mostly young. Model types have been heard saying they are full of gratitude to Epstein for flying them around, and he is a familiar face to many of the Victoria’s Secret girls. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
109) One young woman recalls being summoned by Ghislaine Maxwell to a concert at Epstein’s town house, where the women seemed to outnumber the men by far. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
110) “These were not women you’d see at Upper East Side dinners,” the woman recalls. “Many seemed foreign & dressed a little bizarrely.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
111) This same guest also attended a cocktail party thrown by Maxwell that Prince Andrew attended, which was filled, she says, with young Russian models. “Some of the guests were horrified,” the woman says. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
112) “He’s reckless,” says a former business associate, “and he’s gotten more so. Money does that to you. He’s breaking the oath he made to himself—that he would never do anything that would expose him in the media. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
113) Right now, in the wake of the publicity following his trip with Clinton, he must be in a very difficult place.” #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
114) According to the S.E.C. & other legal documents unearthed by VANITY FAIR, Epstein may have good reason to keep his past cloaked in secrecy: #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
115) ..his real mentor, it might seem, was not Leslie Wexner but Steven Jude Hoffenberg, 57, who, for a few months before the S.E.C. sued to freeze his assets in 1993, was trying to buy the New York Post. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
116) He is currently incarcerated in the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts, serving a 20-year sentence for bilking investors out of more than $450 million in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American history. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
118) This is where the leftist corrupt media attacks Trump w/ Hoffenberg ties.
louisianavoice.com/2016/07/06/pon… #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING 7/6/2016...
119) When Epstein met Hoffenberg in London in the 1980s, the latter was the charismatic, audacious head of the Towers Financial Corporation, a collection agency that was supposed to buy debts that people owed to hospitals, banks, and phone companies. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
121) But Hoffenberg began using company funds to pay off earlier investors and service a lavish lifestyle that included a mansion on Long Island, homes on Manhattan’s Sutton Place and in Florida, and a fleet of cars and planes. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
122) Hoffenberg & Epstein had much in common. Both were smart & obsessed with making money. Both were from Brooklyn. According to Hoffenberg, the two men were introduced by Douglas Leese, a defense contractor. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING linkedin.com/in/douglas-lee…
123) Epstein had been running International Assets Group Inc. (I.A.G.), a consulting company, out of his apartment in the Solo building on East 66th Street in New York. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
124) Though he has claimed that he managed money for billionaires only, in a 1989 deposition he testified that he spent 80 percent of his time assisting people recover stolen money from fraudulent brokers and lawyers. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
125) He was also not above entering into risky, tax-sheltered oil and gas deals with much smaller investors. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
126) A lawsuit that Michael Stroll, former head of Williams Electronics Inc. (a major pinball machine mfr in the 70s and 80s), filed against Epstein shows that in 1982 I.A.G. received an investment from Stroll of $450,000, which Epstein put into oil. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
127) In 1984 Stroll asked for his money back; four years later he had received only $10,000. Stroll lost the suit, after Epstein claimed in court, among other things, that the check for $10,000 was for a horse he’d bought from Stroll. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING
128) “My net worth never exceeded four and a half million dollars,” Stroll has said. #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING arcade-museum.com/manuf_detail.p… WMS Industries in 2013 later became a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Games.
