Epstein's Vast Network of Financiers and Politicians
Summarizing the relationships held by Jefferey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell is a troublesome undertaking. It seems far too bizarre a situation for most to ponder. Perhaps that's why assessment of the situation is often relegated to a "wildly irrational conspiracy theory" by those that are unfamiliar with the horrific details of this child sex trafficking operation; traversing the worlds of high finance, elite science, covert intelligence, and international politics.
When looking deeper; the specific network held by both Epstein and Maxwell is nothing short of globally impressive and significantly influential. It is important to stay mindful of the history sowed by the Maxwell family; alongside their billionaire media empire. The leverage gained through access to, and subsequent blackmail of, highly influential individuals provided Ghislaine, Jeffrey and conspirators with the tools to enable the abuse and trafficking of minors on an international scale.
As shown by a now deleted biography web page made by the Edge Foundation: 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. How did this person from Long Island access and develop such worldly, powerful relationships? How did he amass such wealth? How did he maintain these relationships; especially after becoming a convicted sex offender in 2008? Examining his extended network may provide further context.
We must first understand the specific relationships that enabled Maxwell and Epstein (alongside individuals who ignored the pair's troubled pasts for financial gain); exploring this far-reaching network helps to illustrate how this operation perpetrated atrocities with legal impunity.
It may be a surprise to some; but the name Jeffrey Epstein is well known throughout "power broker" circles. It would be accurate to describe him as a friend of royalty, and Wall Street mainstay (even more so it seems, after serving time for child sex crimes and registering as a sex offender in 2008).
It's important to preface; these relationships have been organized to demonstrate the capacity in which Epstein and Ghislaine interacted with the individual. Efforts have been made to present all relevant information with respect to the level of implication/incrimination; it's understood that certain relationships of Epstein's and Maxwell's may have been business-like in nature. However, there are several individuals that are directly implicated, (after Epstein's 2008 conviction) and at best neglectful of the serious illegal activities undertaken by Epstein and Maxwell.
It is simply impossible to capture the broad scope of this complex network without meticulous deliberation. Think of this as a central depository of information that can be used to demonstrate the far-reaching access and influence of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. An introductory piece, that acts as a bird’s eye view of the network in question.
This will be three-part article. This article will focus on the financer and political connections Epstein and Maxwell had. The second part of the article will focus on the influence the duo had within the International and Public Policy circles. The final article will focus on celebrity connections.

Demonstrating Epstein and Ghislaine's relationships: Finance, Royalty & Politics
Jes Staley Former VP of J.P Morgan; Most recently CEO of Barclays
Staley is present in Epstein's black book. Staley visited Epstein during his 2008-2009 prison stay, while working as Jamie Dimon's V.P. at J.P Morgan; Staley and Epstein made contact regularly. Staley has recently stepped down from his recent role at Barclays, following an internal investigation that also found he sent over 1,200 emails to Epstein, some containing the term "Snow White", possibly referencing an often-used colloquialism for cocaine (or prostitutes). Staley is seen alongside Epstein, Bill Gates, Boris Nikolic and Larry Summers in the photo heading this NYT article linked below:
Jamie Dimon, CEO of J.P Morgan
During Epstein's prison stay in 2008, he received a call from then U.K Cabinet Minister Lord Pete Mandelson; who was in pursuit of a meeting between himself and one Mr. Jamie Dimon, current CEO of J.P Morgan. It's important to note that J.P Morgan has also had a history of mysterious deaths at their firm. $1.3B of cocaine was seized from a freighter ship owned by J.P Morgan, demonstrating that their boats have been used for illegal trafficking purposes in the past:
Larry Summers; Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve and Former President of Harvard; Current Harvard Professor
Summers is present in Epstein's Flight logs. Larry Summers has been photographed with Epstein several times, alongside other fellow Ivy League science professors, such as Steven Pinker and John Brockman.
Lynn Forester De Rothschild: Founding and Managing Partner of The Council for Inclusive Capitalism, Independent Director of E.L Rothschild Family Investment Office (which holds majority ownership of The Economist Media Group)
Seen in Epstein's flight logs before her marriage to Sir Evelyn, is displayed as "Lynn Forester". Lynn and Epstein flew out of the same airport that would eventually become the stage for his 2019 arrest; Teterboro, NY.
According to the NY Post and New Yorker respectively; Lynn was responsible for introducing Epstein to Maxwell and Alan Dershowitz: She also sold her NYC townhouse to Epstein for 80% below market value.
Peter Soros, Manager of Soros Management Fund, Nephew of George Soros
Present in Epstein's black book.
Glen Dubin, Founder of Highbridge Capital Management, Founding Member of the Robinhood Foundation charity
Glen was found in Epstein’s black book. Glen Dubin and his wife, Former Swedish model Eva Andresson-Dubin (who also formerly dated Epstein) are both implicated heavily in Epstein's operation.
Their family butler has testified that he witnessed a 15-year-old girl (then employed as a baby sitter by the Dubin’s) admitted to being forced into having sex with Epstein by Maxwell." Epstein and Maxwell had physically threatened to harm her and seized her passport to keep her on the island, according to the butler’s statement."
A Miami Herald article outlines Dubin's (and others) involvement in Epstein's operation. According to Vanity Fair, Glen Dubin introduced Epstein to then JP Morgan VP, Jes Staley: According to the New York Post; Epstein had told the Dubin's he "wanted to marry" their teenage daughter.
Donald Trump, former U.S President
As per Business Insider's detailed timeline, Donald Trump maintained a relationship with Epstein and Maxwell spanning decades. Epstein child sex trafficking victim Virginia Guiffre was recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell at Trump-owned Mar-A-Lago, demonstrating that at least one of Donald's businesses participated in (and failed to protect staff from) child human sex trafficking and abduction. Trump eventually banned Epstein from Mar-A-Lago in 2005 for harassing a members underaged daughter.
A profile written by Maximum Golf Magazine reporter Michael Cochran, illustrates just how friendly the former president and Epstein were. Epstein and Maxwell both traveled on Trump's private plane with a younger woman described by Cochran as appearing "between the ages of 15 and 20 years old".
According to journalist and author Michael Wolff, Epstein disclosed that he believed a plea deal could be reached with prosecutors by offering to reveal secrets about former presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
Ten years later, Trump told New York Magazine that he’d known Epstein for 15 years. “Terrific guy,” said Trump. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
Trump’s name appears on the flight log for Epstein’s plane, and Epstein’s brother claimed that Trump flew on the aircraft “numerous times” A sex crime complaint was filed against Donald Trump and Jefferey Epstein in 2016, alleging a 1993 child abduction and rape (concealing the identity of the victim for safety reasons). The judge subverted due process and refused to grant a trial for either complaint attempt; an unsettling trend in the handling of many accusations that attempted to seek justice for the victims of Epstein's operation.
Trump has also denied knowing Prince Andrew (established Epstein sex trafficking conspirator), despite speaking fondly of him in the past. Trumps brother; Robert Trump is also present in Epstein's black book along with his wife Blaine.
When asked about Ghislaine Maxwell, Trump responded "I've met her numerous times over the years, I wish her well; whatever it is". Trump's late lawyer, Roy Cohn, had previously assisted Epstein and Les Wexner in legal matters and provided legal guidance for MEGA Group (among other high-profile clients and organizations).
Perhaps in an effort to get ahead of the narrative, Trump suggested he had knowledge regarding abuse on Epstein's island perpetrated by Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton in 2015 at a CPAC convention; but has failed to address troubling details surrounding his long-time relationship with Epstein.
It's extremely concerning that (at least) 2 former U.S presidents have decades long relationships, and apparent implication within Epstein's child sex trafficking operation.
Edgar Bronfman Jr. of the Seagrams fortune, Father of Claire Bronfman; who was charged for her role in the NVIXM sex trafficking cult sting of Kieth Raniere and conspirators
Seen in the black book. Edgar's daughter Claire participated in NVIXM's "sex trafficking pyramid scheme" that employed tactics common to human trafficking, also used by Epstein; where victims of trafficking are encouraged or forced to recruit others.
Claire was photographed with Richard Branson (also in Epstein's black book) during a conference held on his private Necker Island. This article highlights how NVIXM used established manipulation techniques intertwined in "spiritual teachings" in aims of encouraging an increase of openness to suggestion in their followers; a known cult strategy.
Leon Black; Former CEO of Apollo Global, Former Board Member of The Museum of Modern Art
Black loaned Epstein $158 Million. Currently facing a lawsuit accusing him of rape; Leon Black's connection to Epstein is damning for both Apollo Global and the Museum of Modern Art, of which Black sat on the board of.
Mort Zuckerman; CEO Boston Properties
Zuckerman is present in Epstein's black book. Mort Zuckerman has been accused of sexual assault by Guzel Ganieva, Mort has received a subpoena to provide testimony in the trial of Leon Black to explain his own involvement:
Lord Anthony Bamford, CEO of J.C Bamford
Bamford is present in Epstein's black book. Here is a detailed account of Bamford's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Evelyn De Rothschild, British Economist, Financier & Media Mogul
Prince Andrew, Duke of York
Andrew and Epstein had a relationship spanning decades, originally meeting in 1999. The Duke of York is implicated in Epstein's child trafficking operation and has been accused of child rape by Maxwell accuser Virginia Guiffre. The royal family has made an effort to bury this story and protect Andrew; adding to an unsettling pattern, that reveals a systematic failure to seek justice for the victims of Epstein, and co-conspirators.
Richard Branson; Financier, Founder of Virgin Airlines
Branson is present in Epstein's black book. Branson is also a Co-Founder of Storm Management Modeling. Branson also served on the board of the International Centre for Missing and Abused Children (alongside Hilary Clinton) and owns a private island himself (Necker Island). Now deleted "Who We Are" ICMEC webpage that displays a photo of Hillary Clinton.
In Scott Picken's YouTube video, he is filming from Branson's Necker Island, during a trip he spent with Branson and friends. He mentions that Branson has another "very private island, so private, no one even knows about it" called Mesquite Island. 1 minute and 43 seconds through this video Picken also states: "and that's the temple, what's interesting about the temple is Nelson Mandela, Desmon TuTu, Jimmy Carter and many, many other important people come together here to solve global issues".
Epstein's island also had a temple that many prominent global leaders visited. At the end of this video, when Scott goes up to the roof of the estate; two massage tables and two girls in a small hot tub are seen. Picken mentions that "guys are getting massages" and then appears to be asked if he'd like a massage from one of the girls (which he declines):
Michael Bloomberg, former New York Mayor 2002-2013, Founder of Bloomberg
Andrew Cuomo, former New York Governor 2011-2021
Cuomo, alongside Kerry Kennedy, is present in Epstein's black book. Cuomo has been accused of several sexual harassment and abuse crimes and has a history of attempting to deny justice to victims of sex crimes. According to the NY Post, Kerry Kennedy stated she "slept in the bathroom" to avoid Cuomo's abuse. His accusers (Charlotte Bennett, Lindsey Boylan, Ana Liss, Alyssa Mcgrath, Virginia Lematis, Anna Ruch, Karen Hilton and several anonymous victims) and their accusations are summarized here.
Bill Richardson; former New Mexico Governor
Richardson is present in Epstein's black book. Richardson himself has recalled at least one occasion that he visited Epstein's Zorro ranch. Epstein's now infamous "Zorro Ranch" mansion is located in New Mexico. Richardson is directly implicated in Epstein's operation.
George Mitchell, Oil Family Heir, former Disney CEO and Politician (served under Clinton and Obama, also a Senator for Maine, 1980-1995 and Honorary Knight of the Order of the British Empire)
Mitchell is present in Epstein's black book. George Mitchell and Bill Richardson have been accused of direct involvement in Epstein's child sex trafficking operation by Virginia Giuffre. This is particularly troubling as Mitchell oversaw the Philadelphia Archdiocese compensation fund for victims of clergy sex abuse back in 2018. Mitchell is directly implicated in Epstein's operation.
Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman
Epstein flew to visit bin Salman on the eve of 2016 U.S Election. Bin Salman visited Epstein's home "many times," as was disclosed in a 2018 NYT interview with Epstein, conducted in Epstein's NYC apartment by James B. Stewart. Bin Salman manages the Saudi Sovreign Wealth fund; a large investor in both Tesla and Amazon (among a range of other financial products). Epstein had an Austrian passport, listing a Saudi Arabia address. It was found in a locked safe in Epstein's home along with over $70,000 in cash and loose diamonds, court papers revealed.
In this same article linked above, Stewart reported: "I’d never met Epstein before. I had contacted him because my colleagues and I had heard a rumor that he was advising Tesla’s embattled chief executive, Elon Musk, who was in trouble after announcing on Twitter that he had lined up the funding to take Tesla private.
Epstein may have been attempting to establish the impression of a business relationship with Elon Musk; it's unknown if Epstein was in fact advising Tesla or Musk in any capacity, it's possible he was merely another Wall Street Tesla investor (with access to a lot of capital) from Musk's perspective.
However, according to the Business Insider, Epstein and his entourage were provided with a private tour of Musk's Space X facility in Hawthorne, California, in 2012. It appears Epstein was indeed trying to gain access to Musk; and had hoped that Kimbal Musk's relationship with one of his ex-girlfriends would provide opportunities of access to Elon. Musk and then spouse, Talulah Riley also allegedly visited Epstein's house during a busy day of several business appointments.
It is also of note that Bin Salman's Saudi Sovereign Wealth Fund purchased a significant stake in Tesla shortly after it was reported that Epstein was "working in some capacity" with Tesla. It appears that Epstein may have been responsible for sourcing this investment on Tesla's (or possibly his own) behalf.
Jeff Bezos, Founder of Blue Origin, Former CEO and Current Board Member Amazon
Bezos attended a dinner with Epstein (after Jeffrey was a known sex offender). Bezos also attended a book reading where Ghislaine Maxwell was also present. Bezos was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to meet with Crown Prince MBS (bin Salman) on the eve of the 2016 U.S Election. "On November 9, the day Epstein's jet returned to Paris, MBS held an unrelated meeting with Bezos, several Amazon executives, and two Saudi ministers.
The Saudi Press Agency said they "discussed fields of cooperation and investment opportunities available according to the Kingdom's Vision 2030," the crown prince's signature economic initiative." Epstein was also in Riyadh on this date. "Kingdom's Vision" is constructed alongside the World Economic Forum's "Great Reset" and efforts made by the "Council for Inclusive Capitalism" (a strategy by financers to expose people of poverty to higher debt exposure, and subsequent debt slavery).
All three aim to complete their goals by the year 2030. All three organizations possess overlapping circles; many of whom possessing a relationship with Epstein or Maxwell. Similar to Musk, Bezos may have been engaging with Epstein to gain access to investments otherwise out of reach; such as bin Salman and Henry Kravis of KKR (KKR is a major Amazon investor and has inked multiple real estate deals with Amazon since 2011).
Bill Clinton, Former U.S President
Clinton is Present in the Epstein flight logs. Bill's wife, Hillary, held a campaign fundraiser at Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick's house; located next door to Epstein's NYC apartment. As mentioned earlier in this article Donald Trump used this very same location for his 2016 campaign fundraiser.
Clinton travelled to Africa alongside Epstein, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker in 2002. As confirmed by this 1995 copy of a Trilateral Commission ledger; Clinton also served on the Trilateral Commission alongside Epstein, Henry Kissinger, George Soros and David Rockefeller: Bill has denied traveling to Epstein's island (although victim testimony suggests otherwise). Trump and Clinton possessed a strong relationship prior to the 2016 election; and Trump has donated multiple times to the Clinton Foundation:
Al Gore, Former U.S Vice President (Serving under Clinton)
Al and his wife Tipper Gore are alleged to have visited Epstein's Island.
