Big banks to face lawsuit over Epstein ties

Epstein news

JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank knowingly benefited from their links to sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein, the suits claim.

A US judge has cleared the way for three lawsuits to move forward against banking giants JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, alleging both companies knowingly benefited from their relationships with convicted sex predator Jeffrey Epstein. Manhattan District Judge Jed Rakoff issued the four-page accusation on Tuesday, with a fuller statement to be published “in due course.”

The first lawsuit against JP Morgan, filed by an unnamed “Jane Doe” representing a group of the pedophile’s victims, argues the US-based bank “knowingly benefited from participating in a sex trafficking venture” led by Epstein, who was a client there from 1998 through 2013, and “negligently failed to exercise reasonable care to prevent physical harm.”

The US Virgin Islands’ own suit against JP Morgan alleges the bank enabled the late predator’s sex trafficking operation, though Judge Rakoff also threw out three of the four claims in that suit.

Mimi Liu, the lawyer for the US Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned a private island, claimed current JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon was aware that his “billionaire client was a child trafficker” at the time of his felony conviction for soliciting prostitution from a minor in 2008. Dimon kept him as a client for another five years anyway.

JP Morgan’s lawyers had argued the plaintiffs failed to meet the threshold of proof that they had known about or participated in Epstein’s sex trafficking operation. Brad Edwards, Doe’s attorney, countered that the disgraced financier’s trafficking activities would have been “impossible without the assistance of JPMorgan Chase, and later Deutsche Bank,” arguing the pedophile was given special treatment because he brought in wealthy clients.

Eight of the 12 claims from Doe’s lawsuit against Deutsche Bank, which took on Epstein as a client in 2013, even though he had been a registered sex offender since 2008, were also dismissed.

Rakoff’s decision allows the plaintiffs to pursue further pretrial discovery. Former JP Morgan CEO Jes Staley, a central figure in both lawsuits against the bank who resigned in 2021 over his links with Epstein, is reportedly due to be deposed later this week. Court filings show he exchanged over 1,200 emails with Epstein, with more than a few referencing young women.

Last week, Rakoff tentatively scheduled trial dates for both JP Morgan cases for October 23.

  1. Money Talks, Bullshit Walks, even when the lucre is filthy and confirmed!
    Had Jamie Dimond dropped Epstein, the Zionist ramifications to the Banks would have been damaging, so they couldn’t afford for Epstein to be booted from their banks. That could have precipitated a bank collapse a few years back!
    Even the Caribbean Banks have a sense of morality that won’t tolerate the Khazarian Zio-Communist’s mafia-like behaviours when it comes to ritual sacrifice, adrenalchrome and human organ profits, and international child trafficking and prostitution pay-off that need to be…’laundered’…!
    But…the FBI knew this, especially with the occultic Chabad facilities on Little Saint John’s Island, while conveniently ignoring the *logbook (*a legal document as per FAR Part 91) of passengers flown on the ‘Lolita Express’ who are implicated in Epstein’s pedophilia / grooming Zionist Khazarian-led lifestyle.
    Why do you think Ghislaine Maxwell has a Submersible Vessel Operators Licence? The kids were transported around via submarine (out of sight-out of mind) and disembarked in the cave at LSJ’s on the east end of the island, right under the Little Temple’ that has the gold dome and blue & white Israeli stripes painted on the sacrificial Temple itself.
    This is why tonnes of cement were brought-in and used to fill-in the submarine base at LSJ about the time of Epstein’s second arrest, thus remove the evidence! But-
    The FBI knew this as well, as did the ‘guests and visitors’ to LSJ!
