Billionaire who gave Jeffrey Epstein power of attorney in order to manage his finances says Epstein stole "vast sums of money"

One of the enduring mysteries of the super-wealthy pedophile Jeffrey Epstein is where, exactly, he got his money: a former math teacher, he styled himself a personal financial manager catering exclusively to billionaires, but had few-to-no clients, and did not own or trade assets that anyone could locate.

 

That said, there is one client of record for Epstein's "money-management" business: Leslie Wexner, the billionaire CEO of the company that owns Victoria's Secret and Bed, Bath and Beyond, whose finances Epstein managed for many years.

Wexner broke ties with Epstein after he was indicted on prostitution charges, but has said little since. Now, in a 564-word letter to the trustees of his family foundation, Wexner revealed that Epstein had power of attorney over his finances, and that he used that power to "misappropriate vast sums of money" from Wexner, only some of which Wexner was able to recover.

Wexner says he had no knowledge of Epstein's sex-trafficking enterprise -- which was generally considered to be an open secret, with Epstein's wealthy friends calling his private jet the "Lolita Express" -- prior to the charges.

Wexner detailed how Epstein transferred $21.2m from various Wexner family charities and to a charity that Epstein controlled called COUQ. Wexner said that Epstein eventually transferred $46m worth of securities and a property in the Virgin Islands to a charity controlled by Wexner's wife, which Wexner said was a way to repay funds misappropriated by Epstein from Wexner family foundation accounts.

Epstein reportedly exploited his connection with Wexner to procure young girls for sex, representing himself as a Victoria's Secret modelling agent.

“I first met Mr. Epstein in the mid-1980s, through friends who vouched for and recommended him as a knowledgeable financial professional,” Mr. Wexner wrote in the letter to the foundation. “Mr. Epstein represented that he had various well-known and respected individuals both as his financial clients and in his inner circle. Based on positive reports from several friends, and on my initial dealings with him, I believed I could trust him.”

That trust included a so-called power of attorney, which enabled Mr. Epstein to hire people, sign checks, buy and sell properties, and borrow money — all on Mr. Wexner’s behalf.

Mr. Wexner defended his decision to give Mr. Epstein power of attorney, calling it “common in that context” and saying, “He had wide latitude to act on my behalf with respect to my personal finances.”

Despite his “sweetheart” deal and having seemingly evaded justice, billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested earlier this month on federal charges for sex trafficking minors. Epstein’s arrest has again brought increased media attention to many of his famous friends, the current president among them. 

Back in 2007, when Jeffrey Epstein was under scrutiny and his finances were under pressure, the convicted pedophile cut a deal with New York real estate titan Andrew Farkas to be a partner in a small marina on Saint Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. This deal, according to Bloomberg, gave Epstein his entry into the world of luxury yachting, a business investment that would fit his lifestyle and the lifestyle of the wealthy that he spent decades courting...

If you search the news, you will find very little to nothing in the corporate media about pedo Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Israeli intelligence. This connection is obvious—from Epstein’s connection to the Zionist Les Wexner and especially his Mossad handler, Ghislaine Maxwell, the daughter of documented Mossad operative and double agent Robert Maxwell. 

Former Israeli Prime Minister and former head of Israel's Military Intelligence Directorate, Ehud Barak, entered into a "partnership worth millions" with Jeffrey Epstein in 2015.

The corporate media will bury the Acosta accusation that Jeffrey Epstein worked for shadowy intelligence groups. 

He's pals with a passel of Nobel Prize–winning scientists, CEOs like Leslie Wexner of the Limited, socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, even Donald Trump. But it wasn't until he flew Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker to Africa on his private Boeing 727 that the world began to wonder who he is.
