Jeffrey Epstein Transactions Were Flagged, Report Reveals

According to newly released court documents, JPMorgan began raising red flags in 2006 about its Financial transactions relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and discussed with former executive Jes Staley about his close relationship with the multimillionaire sex trafficker. Staley was accused of sexually assaulting at least one woman in Epstein’s orbit.

Three lawsuits filed against JPMorgan in federal court in Manhattan have uncovered fresh information regarding the Wall Street giants who allegedly helped fund Epstein’s worldwide sex-trafficking operation.

The allegations also showed that Staley, a former JPMorgan executive, was close with Epstein and had secret email exchanges with the sex offender in which they referred to ladies in Epstein’s inner circle by using the names of Disney princesses. Trials for the associated civil lawsuits, including one brought by the U.S. Virgin Islands, are set to begin in October.

A recent court judgment claims that former Barclays head Jes Staley sexually abused a woman at Epstein’s villa in the Virgin Islands. He told her that he was authorized by Epstein to do anything he pleased with her.

Staley, 66, has acknowledged having been acquaintances with the infamous late financier Epstein, but he has denied any involvement in sexual attacks on females trafficked by Epstein.

A report reveals that one email specifically mentioned Jes’s friendship with Epstein as why JPMorgan kept doing business with him.

The most recent batch of emails was disclosed as part of Jane Doe’s legal motion asking the court to certify the lawsuit as a class action. More than a hundred of Epstein’s victims may join the lawsuit if Doe succeeds.

JPMorgan board reviewed the bank’s investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Epstein and his connections to Staley in an email sent in June 2013.

According to the report, in July 2008, the private bank risk team at JPMorgan reported Epstein to the bank’s anti-money laundering department due to his excessive cash transactions and media reports alleging his participation in prostitution and underage sex.

The email disclosed that the bank’s risk management had recorded his poor history and classified him as high-risk.

The newly discovered emails reveal that JPMorgan officials had worries regarding Epstein as far back as 2006 but did not terminate his account at that time.
