One of the more shocking parts of the Jeffrey Epstein horror story is that, though many people and companies knew more or less what he was up to, they kept doing business with him or associating with him anyway. They knew he was doing unspeakable things to children, or at least could guess that what he was up to was untoward, yet they kept seeing him, associating with him, and providing services for him.
Chief among those, according to a recent lawsuit, was America’s largest bank: JP Morgan, which the US Virgin Islands is attempting to hold accountable by dragging it to federal court in New York and demanding a jury trial. Fox Business News Digital, reporting on that, reports that:
U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George filed the suit on behalf of the government of the U.S. Virgin Islands, demanding a trial by jury.
In the suit, George alleges that JPMorgan Chase violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, The Virgin Islands Criminally Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and the Virgin Islands Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
In the complaint, the Attorney General for the US Virgin Islands alleges that JP Morgan was instrumental in the Epstein operation, saying:
“The Attorney General brings this action, after presenting her findings in September 2022, in her ongoing effort to protect public safety and to hold accountable those who facilitated or participated in, directly or indirectly, the trafficking enterprise Epstein helmed. The investigation revealed that JP Morgan knowingly, negligently, and unlawfully provided and pulled the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid and was indispensable to the operation and concealment of the Epstein trafficking enterprise.”
Continuing, George alleges in the complaint that financial institutions like JP Morgan can choke human trafficking networks if they step up and do so, but that JP Morgan instead “knowingly” helped Epstein with his trafficking network by facilitating and concealing his activities and network.
Further, George alleges that JP Morgan facilitated very suspicious payments, particularly wire and cash transactions, and that those were for Epstein’s “criminal enterprise whose currency was the sexual servitude of dozens of women and girls in and beyond the Virgin Islands.”
JP Morgan is also being sued by an Epstein victim for its alleged role in facilitating her abuse. That lawsuit accuses JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank of “assisting, supporting, facilitating, and otherwise providing the most critical service for the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking organization to successfully rape, sexually assault, and coercively sex traffic.”
As a reminder, JP Morgan, which allegedly did all that to help Epstein prey on young girls, recently debanked Kanye “Ye” West, severing ties with him shortly after he started making controversial comments about the Jews. The Guardian reported that the decision predated his controversial commentary, however.
Kanye, commenting on the bank severing ties with him when he left an event, said “Hey, if you call somebody out for bad business, that means you’re being antisemitic. I feel happy to have crossed the line of that idea so we can speak openly about things, like getting cancelled by a bank.”
