- Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns had three meetings with Jeffrey Epstein in 2014, when he was deputy secretary of State and after Epstein was convicted of child sex exploitation, documents indicate.
Epstein’s “black book” of contacts and flight logs shows Burns first met with Epstein in Washington before Burns visited the convicted sex offender in his Manhattan townhouse, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
- Burns, who became CIA director under Joe Biden in 2021, met with Epstein while he was preparing to leave his position in the government, CIA spokeswoman Tammy Kupperman Thorp said.
- “The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector,” she said. “They had no relationship.”
