Virgin Islands AG: JP Morgan Facilitated Epstein’s Sex Trafficking

  • A new lawsuit from the US Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George accuses JP Morgan Chase of facilitating Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking scheme and covering it up.
  • “Human trafficking,” the lawsuit alleges, was the “principal business” of Epstein’s accounts at the bank, but the bank “turned a blind eye” for more than a decade “because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank.”
  • Epstein died in jail in 2019 while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
  • His arrest also led to a widespread reckoning for his powerful friends and associates — including Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Leslie Wexner — as well as organizations like Harvard University, JP Morgan, and Deutsche Bank.
