A massive Twitter thread from the popular conservative account of Tom Elliot unleashed a series of “business links” between the late Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Gates, whose influence and policy positions are rightfully worrying most regular people.
Elliot began the thread by giving credit to the author of a revealing tome outlining the complex web of deceit and corruption and sourced a lot of his shorter tweets to her.
The thread begins by saying: “1) “Epstein has made many millions out of business links with the likes of @BillGates” — 2001 Evening Standard article” while linking to a video below in which Gates is confronted during an interview about his relationship with Epstein.
“One of the issues that stopped you is that of your relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Do you regret the relationship that you maintained with him against Melinda’s advice and wishes?” Gates is asked in the clip.
Gates replies: “I’ve said that um, I mean, this is you’re going way back in time. But yeah, I knew audience I will say for the, you know, over 100 time, maybe I shouldn’t have had dinners with him.”
When noted that “Epstein had a way of sexually compromising people” and that his ex-wife may have tried to warn him about that, Gates continued to deny any further involvement with the mysterious financier.
“No. I mean, it’s no, I had dinner with them. And that’s all and I regret the relationship the acquaintance that I had dinner with him and the relationship between the foundation and Epstein, which never was any relationship of any kind,” he responds.

The thread continued, starting as far back as 1995 when Epstein is alleged to have “described Gates as a close friend.”
The full thread finishes:
2) While working 1995-96, Epstein victim Maria Farmer said Epstein described Gates as a close friend
3) In the late 90s, Microsoft was in business w/ two separate businesses run by Ghislane Maxwell’s sisters (Magellan & CommTouch), the latter of which Gates personally invested in.
4) Gates’ former chief tech officer & coauthor of “The Road Ahead,” Nathan Myhrvold, was a passenger on the Lolita Express at least twice, said he stayed regularly at Epstein’s houses, & organized an Epstein trip to Russia, meant to help its nuclear program w/ U.S. supercomputers
5) In 2006, Gates hired Melanie Walker to serve as “senior program officer” for the Gates Foundation. Previously she had been Jeffrey Epstein’s “science adviser,” but began her career w/ him in 1992 after he proposed helping her become a Victoria’s Secret model.
6) Walker introduced Gates’ science adviser, Boris Nikolic, to Epstein. In 2013, Epstein, Gates, & Nikolic attended an event together w/ then-JP Morgan’s Larry Summers. Nikolic was listed as the “successor executor” of Epstein’s estate, though he declined after it became public.
7) In 2014, Epstein “directed” Gates to invest $2 million to MIT’s Media Lab, which happened after a Microsoft VP introduced MIT Media Lab’s Joi Ito, who helped Epstein after his first arrest.
8) In 2013, Bill & Melinda Gates attended an event at Epstein’s NYC home, after which Melinda began counseling Bill to sever his Epstein connections.
9) Gates dined w/ Epstein in 2014 to discuss their collaborative philanthropy; soon thereafter the Clinton Global Initiative — Gates being one of its main benefactors — announced Hillary’s “No Ceilings Initiative.” Epstein’s “philanthropy” is closely tied w/ both the Gates & CGI
10) Epstein was working w/ the Gates Foundation to create a partnership w/ JPMorgan for its “global health charitable fund,” from which Epstein would have received fees.
11) Gates said Epstein was his “ticket” to winning the Nobel Prize, per his ex-staffer to the Daily Beast. Norwegian media have reported Gates and Epstein met personally w/ the Nobel Committee.
Suffice it to say, there are a lot of questions surrounding Gates’ seemingly outsized influence arising from his charitable work. With books and a lively Twittersphere to continue discussing, perhaps we will slowly get to the bottom of this.
