Let’s thumb through Jeffrey #Epstein’s Little Black Book.

1/ A word of caution: just because someone’s name & contact information appear in the Epstein Black Book, which dates from 2004-5, does NOT automatically suggest that he or she was involved with the (“alleged”) sex trafficking.
2/ I’d like to think Elie Wiesel, for example, was not being "massaged" by teenagers. Same with Ralph Fiennes, Paul Allen, Julie Taymor, and Simon LeBon. Epstein made a point of meeting influential people, and not all of them shared his depraved sensibilities.
3/ On the other hand, there are some people in there who, while probably innocent of raping minors, are villains nonetheless: Henry Kissinger, Rupert Murdoch, David Koch…and Conrad Black, undeserving beneficiary of a Trump pardon.
4/ There are Rockefellers & Rothschilds in the Epstein Black Book, a clutch of politicians, numerous Hollywood movers & shakers, fashion-industry big-wigs, and royals including the Duke & Duchess of York (Prince Andrew—“Andy,” to Jeffrey).
5/ Other interesting names in the Epstein Black Book: Tom Barrack, Tony Blair, Mike Bloomberg, Jimmy Buffet, Tom Ford, George Hamilton, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Ted Kennedy, Charlie Rose, Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker.
6/ It’s not just men: Candace Bushnell, Janice Dickinson, Minnie Driver, Liz Hurley, Joan Rivers, Barbara Walters are all in it.
7/ The Black Book was smuggled out by a former Epstein employee, Alfredo Rodriguez, who refused to turn it over to the FBI in 2009 unless he was paid 50 grand. When the government refused, he tried to peddle it to the lawyers of the Epstein victims.
8/ Per the affidavit, Rodriguez claimed to have additional information that he described as a “Holy Grail & Golden Nugget” that would show the full scope of Epstein’s crimes. Eventually, the FBI arranged to pay him, seized the Black Book, & arrested him.
9/ Gawker somehow got a hold of the Black Book and published it in 2015. A handful of the entries were circled by Rodriguez—supposedly because they were either key witnesses or otherwise important to the FBI’s case against Epstein.
10/ We can’t ask him, because Rodriguez—who said he needed the 50 large as an “insurance policy” in case Epstein came after him—died in prison of a “long illness.”
11/ The first circled names belongs to Flavio Briatore, the Italian “businessman” & fraudster. He is involved with Benetton & racing & dated Naomi Campbell AND Heidi Klum; he is father to Klum’s daughter. He also fixed a race in 2008, so apparently fraud is a thing with him.
12/ Another Epstein BFF is the French model agent Jean Luc Brunel, who is a complete piece of shit—and exactly the sort of dude you’d expect Jeffrey to pal around with. Here, read this:
13/ Courtney Love is both in the book AND circled? WTF?
14/ Other circled names: Les Wexner, Peter Soros (nephew of George), Ehud Barak, Alan Dershowitz and—because of course—Donald Trump. Trump has LOTS of contact info in the book, more than most.
15/ Ivanka Trump is in Epstein’s Black Book. So’s her mom, as well as her uncle and then-aunt: Robert and Blaine Trump. Her brothers are not.

None are circled.
16/ FWIW, I’ve looked through this four times now and did not see Bill Clinton’s name in there, although it is reported to be. Am I just Clinton-blind at this point? Was it redacted somehow? The page torn and stashed in the basement of Comet Ping Pong? No idea.
17/ ICYMI in my earlier threads, Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s longtime girlfriend and apparent partner in crime, is in the book a bunch of times, always circled. She is the daughter of the late Robert Maxwell, business partner of Semion Mogilevich, head of the Russian mob.
18/ Again, I caution you—and myself—from taking too much away from an address book smuggled out by a disgruntled employee to make some extra money. Especially one published by Gawker. For all we know, this was leaked by design, to muddy the waters.
But the Epstein story isn’t over by half, methinks. It’s too fascinating, there’s so much we don’t yet know, and Trump & some of his key allies appear to be involved.
