Banking On Epstein – Jeffrey Epstein Victims Sue Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan

As victims of Jeffrey Epstein sue Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan, we ask: “Why aren’t they also going after Barclays and Jes Staley also?”

Whilst yesterday grubby groper Ghislaine Maxwell got to get out of her cell for a few hours to max out on a novel nosh-up consisting of a vegan turkey replacement named Tofurky®, news was breaking that Deutsche Bank AG and JPMorgan Chase & Co. were being sued by two unnamed women in connection to her late lover, Jeffrey Epstein, being enabled by them.


Clearly making a stramash out of the fact that there’s still plenty of Epstein cash floating around, two separate lawsuits filed in the U.S. District for the Southern District of New York on Thursday allege the financial institutions knowingly benefitted from “assisting, supporting, facilitating, and otherwise providing the most critical service for the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking organisation to successfully rape, sexually assault, and coercively sex traffic” the women in spite of their having knowledge about Epstein’s nefarious activities.



Going further the anonymous plaintiffs allege that both firms were happy to “earn millions of dollars” facilitating a since croaked and already convicted paedophile criminal and “chose profit over following the law.” Here were institutions, the alleged victims stated, ignored “red flags” and of them, Bradley Edwards, a lawyer in one of the cases, stated: “The time has come for the real enablers to be held responsible, especially his wealthy friends and the financial institutions that played an integral role. These victims were wronged, by many, not just Epstein. He did not act alone.”



They add that Epstein would have been unable to keep his sex trafficking operation going without “the assistance and complicity” of banking institutions and that the involvement of Deutsche and JP Morgan gave “the appearance of legitimacy.”


In another part of the filing, featured in the, it was further observed that the two firms “knew that Epstein would use means of force, threats of force, fraud, abuse of legal process, exploitation of power disparity, and a variety of other forms of coercion to cause young women and girls to engage in commercial sex acts” and “also engaged in repeated acts of racketeering activity to support the Epstein organisation.”


Tellingly, the online title also shared: “[Deutsche] was fined $150 million by state regulators in 2020 for failings which included not intervening as Epstein paid women’s tuition and gave suspicious payments to Russian models and women with Eastern European names. The [firm] had a responsibility to monitor his accounts because he was a registered sex offender.”


Whilst Deutsche told The Hill that “this claim lacks merit” and JPMorgan “declined to comment,” one is left asking why these two women haven’t also gone after another key player in this matter, Barclays, and its quite rightly now disgraced Epstein ‘bestie’ former CEO, Jes Staley.

Debbie Staley Jes Staley
Disgraced Boston, Massachusetts born “casino banker” Jes Staley pictured living it up with his wild-eyed wife Debbie Nitzan Staley. The pair visited Little St James, the island owned by Jeffrey Epstein, just months before Mr Staley took up his role at Barclays in 2015 in spite of the now croaked paedophile’s 2008 conviction for sexual offences against minors. In 2020, shamelessly attempting to justify his position, the banker declared: “Obviously I thought I knew him well and I didn’t. For sure, with hindsight with what we know now, I deeply regret having any relationship with Jeffrey.”
Jes Staley in Epstein-Maxwell Little Black Book
The now left-out-in-the-cold American financier was listed in the infamous ‘Little Black Book’ sometimes wrongly accredited to being Jeffrey Epstein’s – but mostly that features the addresses of contacts of ‘The Bouncing Czech’s’ decidedly deviant daughter – and had six contact numbers as well as an email there. He was clearly a very close associate of the dodgy duo, whatever he now claims.

Little St James Paedo Island
Little St James – now quite understandably better known as ‘Paedo Island’ – was not only the scene of meetings between the now former Barclays CEO and the now croaked paedophile. It was also allegedly one of the locations where Prince Andrew abused the woman he paid £12 million to in spite of claiming to have never met, Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Since Epstein’s rather suspicious death in 2019, various “garish” items on the island have been removed – amongst them gargoyles and sculptures of cockatoos and a cow. Unsurprisingly, the island remains for sale and currently Margo Lynch of Christie’s International Real Estate is laughably attempting to flog this hellhole and neighbouring Great St James as “an island hopper’s dream” for £91.3 million – down from £94.5 million in March this year and prior valuations of £181.8 million. One is simply left asking: “Who’d call places where countless people were abused a ‘dream’? They’re more like a ‘nightmare’!” Margo Lynch must be on either crack, acid, the hooch or all of the aforementioned.

  1. Why only 2 survivors are filing suits against the banks? Good question why Barclays doesn’t get to join the party.

    So difficult for me to fathom there’s no justice or agencies filing suits either. Seems the message is, if you have lots of money, you can do whatever you want, hurt whoever you want and not pay any penalties.
