Here is the filing for NINE EAST 71ST STREET CORPORATION, the corporation that owned Jeffrey Epstein's house in NY when title was transferred from Les Wexner to Epstein. Created August 25, 1989 & dissolved May 14, 2015. Jeffrey E. Epstein is listed as Chief Executive Officer. 2/
And here is the deed filed when the title was transferred from NINE EAST 71ST STREET CORPORATION to MAPLE, INC. of St Thomas, US Virgin Islands on December 23, 2011. 3/
"The reason Epstein decided to transfer ownership in 2011 from NES to Maple Inc. remains unclear. The timing of it, however, does coincide with the year — 2011 — that Epstein was forced to register as a Level 3 sex offender in New York."

"He’s reckless, and he’s gotten more so,” one former business associate told Vanity Fair of Epstein. “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.”

From article above:

"Erika Kellerhals, Virgin Islands tax attorney, is Gratitude America's secretary & treasurer. She was also secretary, treasurer & trustee of the J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation, according to a 2015 registration statement."
Erika Kellerhals is also named on the deed in which the NYC mansion was transferred to the mysterious Maple Inc. LLC. In fact, Kellerhals seems to be involved with everything Jeffrey Epstein does. She might be someone SDNY would want to talk to. 7/
Looks like Kellerhals moved from NY to St Thomas in 2003. 8/
Erika's bar admissions are interesting. Florida? England and Wales? That's... diverse. 9/
Her Linked In profiled indicates that the "boutique" law firm she started at was Losquadro and Zerbo, from 2000-2002. Did she meet Epstein while working there, prompting a move to the Virgin Islands in 2003? 9/
Apparently, as late as May 2019, Epstein was involved in a controversy with developing his second island, Great St. James, without getting the proper permits or making provisions for the endangered wildlife and coral reefs on and around the island. 10/

"Epstein continuing illegal construction on Great St. James despite stop-work order, threat of fines. St. Thomas attorney Erika Kellerhals, who has worked for Epstein for years, has been organizing the construction work on Great St. James." 11/
Kellerhals may have grown up on Staten Island. An Edward and Kathleen Kellerhals owned a popular restaurant that closed in 2014, The Corner House. 12/

In 2016, Ghislaine Maxwell put her 1910 Beaux Arts townhome at 116 E. 65th on the market for $15 million - photos within. 14/

Pages 6-10 of this Getty Images search provide photos of a party Ghislaine held there, with many notable guests, including actor Matthew Modine, Jean Piggozi, and "professional hostess" Peggy Siegal.

Per this NYT article from today, looks like Epstein bought 116 N.E. 65th for Ghislaine. Interestingly, her next door neighbor was Diandra Douglas, actor Michael Douglas' ex-wife.

"But Ms. Maxwell disappeared from the social scene after 2015, the year that Ms. Giuffre filed the defamation suit against her.

By 2016, Ms. Maxwell was no longer being photographed at events. That April, the New York townhome where she had lived was sold for $15 million.
Interesting NY Post article from 2000:

"EPSTEIN is an enigmatic figure. Rumors abound — including wild ones about a career in the Mossad and, contrarily, the CIA."

Ghislaine took a $2,000-a-month apartment on Upper East Side & began working selling real estate. One thing collapse of her father’s empire couldn’t take away from her was rich network of wealthy & influential friends she had made in lifetime of privilege.

She used them now. 19/
"“The whole place was kind of dark and surreal,” Roshan remembers. “There was a security guard in the corner. The whole thing lasted half an hour. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.” 20/

"Other party, John Doe, submitted brief in support of Maxwell, who continues to mount a last-ditch legal campaign to keep court records that allegedly contain details of sex exploits involving young girls — and other third party people — under seal." 21/

"So if he didn’t do anything, then why doesn’t he want to be identified?’’ Bohrer said."

Who is the mystery John Doe who filed an amicus brief supporting Ghislaine Maxwell? 22/
Here is the actual 19-page John Doe amicus curiae brief from March 19, 2019. 23/

“wholesale unsealing... will almost certainly disclose unadjudicated allegations against third persons—allegations that may be product of...failing memories of events alleged to have occurred over decade & half ago.”

So, who might have been around Epstein 15 years ago? 24/

"Well I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him," Trump said. "He was a fixture of Palm Beach. I had a falling out with him a long time ago, I don't think I've spoken to him for 15 years. I wasn't a fan." 25/

Lewin "has represented corporate & individual clients in significant & high-profile matters involving allegations of securities & financial frauds, money laundering, foreign interference in U.S. elections, & violations of (FCPA) & Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)." 26/
Nick served "for more than a decade as a fed prosecutor with U.S. DOJ & senior FBI official — including as Special Counsel to former FBI Directors Robert S. Mueller III & James B. Comey, & then as Deputy Chief of Criminal Division in U.S. Attorney’s Office for SDNY." 🤔 27/
So John Doe is probably not a guy who runs a bodega on corner by Epstein's shadow office, but rather someone w/ 💰in need of counsel w/ experience in "high-stakes U.S. & cross-border regulatory & criminal enforcement actions, investigations, & complex commercial litigation." 28/
Per @KlasfeldReports "The government's post-argument briefing also contains a revelation that one of the people Epstein paid after @jkbjournalist 's "Perversion of Justice" series was "named and featured prominently in the Herald." 29/

@KlasfeldReports @jkbjournalist Interesting article that talks about Epstein's childhood and may explain the origin of the mysterious Maple Inc to which he transferred the title of his NYC mansion. /30

@KlasfeldReports @jkbjournalist 😳"During 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton’s campaign consulted Bill’s post–White House Secret Service logs because they were worried Trump would bring up Bill’s close association with Epstein and wanted to get ahead of the story, a source told me."
@KlasfeldReports @jkbjournalist "Andrew, who visited Epstein’s Virgin Island hideaway, once brought Ghislaine & Epstein to stay at Craigowan Lodge in grounds of Balmoral." /33

@KlasfeldReports @jkbjournalist Comprehensive list of prominent people who might be a little nervous about their Epstein connections right now. 34/ rollingstone.com/culture/cultur…
"Of Epstein’s famous former cronies, Prince Andrew has arguably been the most directly implicated in the criminal allegations against Epstein." 35/
🔥 Holy cow. This 2015 Guardian article about Epstein. How had I not seen this?

"Virginia Roberts also alleged in a new affidavit filed on Friday that she was so badly assaulted by Epstein’s friends that she thought she might die." 36/

Read the whole article linked above. It's a doozy. Interesting the mention of Thailand, since Prince Andrew vacationed with Epstein there. Thailand is often a destination for those in search of...unsavory sexual activities. 37/
""Epstein specifically told me... him doing this was so that they would 'owe him,' they would be 'in his pocket,'" Roberts explained." 38/ bangkokpost.com/world/1711387/…
""If I left Epstein... he could have had me killed or abducted, and I always knew he was capable of that if I did not obey him," another alleged victim, Virginia Roberts, said during a hearing." 39/
Nice catch. Pence's trip mysteriously cancelled the same day as Epstein sealed indictment. 40/

Comprehensive spreadsheet of Epstein's flight manifests. 41/

"But [Prince Andrew's] association [with Epstein] dates back even further as duo were pictured in 2001 partying with topless women on yacht in Phuket, Thailand. 42/

"Epstein was open about his interest in sex, presenting it as his only vice. He did not drink, smoke cigarettes, or take drugs. He was a germaphobe who hated shaking hands." <Venn diagram = germophobes who sexually assault females> 43/

Contractor who spent 6 years installing WIFI system at Epstein's island compound says young girls everywhere; mysterious temple used as workout room. 44/

Private investigator says Epstein has traveled with 2 female procurers recently. 45/

Good question by @haveahavanese who wants to know more about Epstein's mother and upbringing. Here are his parents, Seymour Epstein and Paula Epstein, both far right. 46/
@haveahavanese "The three-story house at 3742 Maple Ave. is bigger than many of others on block, but it was divided into 3 apartments. The Epsteins rented middle one. Jeffrey was the older of the two children, nicknamed Bear. His brother, Mark, was 2 years younger, nicknamed Puggie. 47/
“They were so gentle, the most gentle people,” a former neighbor says. “Simple. The most simple people in the world.” 48/
Jeffrey Epstein's mother is at front right, with 2 small children in front of her. Is this a young Jeff Epstein, or his brother Mark? 49/
"Epstein revealed he feels high-school students aged 17 to 18 years are “old” & that he does not remember if he had sexual contact w/ Dalton students after he was a teacher there."/50 thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epstei…
"Jeffrey Epstein didn’t abuse underage girls in a vacuum. He had enablers. And friends. For a few years in the ‘80s, I was one of his friends — in the transactional, Manhattan meaning of that word — and I got a preview of his sickness." 53/

"When we met in 1986, Epstein’s double identity intrigued me — he said he didn’t just manage money for clients with mega-fortunes, he was also a high-level bounty hunter.? 54/
"My wife-to-be was then a military historian, with a book about to be published. Interview Magazine photographed her in a buttoned-up military shirt, with a taut khaki tie. Epstein had chatted her up at a few parties. The military look fooled him not at all." 55/
"I’d met [Ghislaine Maxwell] several times with Epstein; we were also “friends,” in that transactional Manhattan way. 'If you lose 10 pounds, I'll fuck you,' she said, with my wife standing next to me." 56/
The Shell Game: Untangling Convicted Sex Predator & Child Sex Trafficking Jeffrey Epstein’s Offshore Money Web 57/

"On multiple occasions I saw Epstein exit his helicopter and board his private jet with children—female children,” says a former air traffic controller at the airstrip in St. Thomas." 58/

"Locals say Epstein was flying in underage girls long after conviction for sex crimes—authorities did nothing to stop him. “It was like he was flaunting it,” says employee at St. Thomas airstrip. “But it was said that he always tipped really well, so everyone overlooked it.” /59
“One incident in particular really stands out in my mind, because the girls were just so young. They couldn’t have been over 16. Epstein looked very angry and hurled his jacket at one of them."/60
"Per employees, the girls arrived w/ Epstein aboard one of his two Gulfstream jets. Between January 2018 & June 2019, flight records show, the jets were airborne at least one out of every three days. They stopped all over world, sometimes for only a few hours at a time." 61/
"Netflix, FX & Annapurna Pictures are among Hollywood companies parting ways with Peggy Siegal, movie & television publicist who reportedly used her connections to get accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein into splashy premieres & parties. 64/

"Siegal, known for her thick Rolodex and sway over annual awards races in film & television, was fired last week from consultant role on Netflix’s Emmy campaign strategy following stories that documented how Siegal helped Epstein access to A-list events". 65/
"Siegal reportedly allowed Epstein to pay for her travel.
Netflix has also cut ties with Siegal. Her company had sent out invitations for screenings and promotional events that have yet to take place. She will no longer be involved in Netflix events." 66/
"Parties close to FX Network said Siegal will no longer be used for promo duties & "tastemaker" events for shows “Trust” & “Feud." She was also dismissed from oversight of Aug premiere of Annapurna’s “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?”, being marketed by United Artists Releasing." 67/
"I obtained phone logs that show Jeffrey Epstein called Charlie Rose dozens of times, including to recommend potential assistants. I spoke to one who said she was sexually harassed by Rose. She told me, “I was being offered up for abuse.” 68/

"Another entry reads, 'Jeffrey Epstein wants to talk to you before you call these two girls." 69/
Video testimony of Katie Johnson detailing several sexual encounters with Donald Trump at the age of 13, at the home of Jeffrey #Epstein . 70/

"The Jeffrey Epstein scandal “already seems bigger than Weinstein,” per source involved in litigation against Epstein. Per attorney David Boies, some 2,000 pages of documents are set to be released in the next “10 days to two weeks.” 72/

"Sources said some of the men named in the first batch of documents include former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson; former Middle East envoy and senator George Mitchell; and former Microsoft chief technology officer Nathan Myhrvold." 73/
"Meanwhile, mystery of who Jeffrey Epstein is remains as vexing as when scandal first broke. Although Epstein had documented ties to Wall Street stalwarts like Leon Black & Glenn Dubin, no one has yet provided a convincing explanation for how he made his fortune." 74/
"Accused pedophile and wealthy Manhattan financier Jeffrey Epstein was found injured and in a fetal position inside his cell at a New York City jail, according to sources close to the investigation.

Epstein was found semi-conscious with marks on his neck." 76/
"Two sources tell News 4 that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, while a third source cautioned that the injuries were not serious and questioned if Epstein might be using it as a way to get a transfer." 77/
"A fourth source said an assault has not been ruled out, and that another inmate was questioned." 78/
"Sources said investigators questioned Tartaglione, and the former cop claimed not to have seen anything and didn’t touch Epstein, sources said.

Epstein is now on suicide watch inside MCC. Attorneys for Epstein did not immediately return calls for comment." 79/
"For the next 16 years, that document gave Epstein unmatched authority over Wexner’s financial affairs — and it corresponded to a period in which Epstein came to control or own valuable assets that previously belonged to Wexner or his companies". 81/ nyti.ms/2ZbjDIJ
"Over the years, Epstein obtained a NY mansion, a private plane & a luxury estate in Ohio — today valued at roughly $100 million all together — previously owned by Wexner or his companies. At the same time, he drove a wedge between Wexner & longtime associates and friends." 82/
"Book says after writing letter to Gov Ron Desantis urging him to investigate, she has received at least a dozen messages with comments Like, ‘You don’t want to get into this,’ ‘Let it go,’ and “Little girl you are barking up the wrong tree.’ 83/
