Epstein's client list
NPR watch: Columbia gumshoe digging deep
I turned on the radio this morning and the Morning Edition lady was interviewing Khadeeja Safdar from the Wall Street Journal. Safdar is a graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism, where America’s future top reporters learn how to really challenge the elite and shake up the status quo. Safdar has done a couple pieces on Jeffrey Epstein; recently she did a semi expose on Noam Chomsky’s financial dealings with Epstein. However I’m thinking she didn’t dig deep enough to find out what kind of services, beyond strange banking transactions, Epstein provided the good professor. I only read the part you could see before the pay wall kicked in.
In the case on the radio this morning Deutsche Bank was sued for misreporting payments to Epstein that they were handling and will have to pay out millions- yes DB will have to find a way to cough up millions- to the victims in Epstein’s sex trafficking and blackmail operation.
Khadeeja said David Boies (“boys”) was representing the victims. This would presumably include Virginia Giuffre, the cute, young blonde in the photo with Andy, Duke of York and Ghis, his procurer. Boies is one of America’s most famous power attorneys. He has three mansions and a yacht and a vineyard, has been married three times (the 2nd with the woman he stole from his former law professor- married at the time), charges $2000 an hour, has a net worth between 25 and 50 million, but as the NYT points out, is just a regular guy because he’s from rural Illinois and prefers suits off the rack. Here’s a list of some of his former clients, all underdogs just trying to get justice from the establishment:
George Steinbrenner and the NY Yankees
Theranos Health Care (Boies also served on the board here, as did Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, James Mattis and other people’s choice award recipients.)
Maurice Greenberg (CEO of AIG)
He also represented the US government in its lawsuit against Microsoft, where Boies famously grilled Bill Gates for days. Boies won that one, but the case was overturned in appeals court and Gates got to keep his monopoly and continue his work on perfecting viruses of the digital and pharmaceutical variety.
Back to the Epstein case: WSJ’s reporter Safdar was asked by the Morning Edition shill what the response was from the defendant, Deutsche Bank. Her canned answer sounded like a statement from the DB defense team. Then she talked about other banks involved with Epstien, and how much the defendants could be expected to receive in damages (I think it was between $75,000 and $5 million).
Then the bombshell: Safdar gave us what we’ve all been waiting to hear from the mainstream media and she read off a list of some of the major clients in Epstien’s sex and blackmail operation. Here’s a partial list of those names:
· Bill Cl…
Heh, just kidding. For some reason neither Morning Edition nor WSJ’s Safdar wanted to talk about that part of the equation. However, these cases are not finished and we can take heart: Boies is on it!
