As Jeffrey Epstein’s “fat cat” banker Jes Staley faces allegations that he “personally observed” his chum abusing young women, isn’t it time that his shameless shushing simply stopped? Silence is certainly not golden in this sordid saga
Ponzi peddling paedo Jeffrey Epstein and noxious nonce Ghislaine Maxwell went to see Pope John Paul II in 2003, but though they likely sought his blessing, it was always a case of “follow the money” for these two. Far more important in enabling their nefarious activities were big-baller bankers and now one of the most important of that number, former Barclays and JPMorgan head honcho Jes Staley, is facing fresh woes over his connections to the decidedly deviant duo.
“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” whined Staley in 2020 of his links to the croaked sex fiend abuse. Last night though, the MailOnline shared that the former boss of Barclays is now additionally being accused of ‘personally observing’ Jeffrey Epstein abusing young women, according to a victim’s lawsuit filed against JPMorgan.
The paper’s Jamie Phillips surmised:
“He has now been named in a lawsuit filed by one of Epstein’s victims, a woman known only as Jane Doe 1. She is suing JP Morgan, where Staley was chief executive until 2013 and had Epstein as a client.”
“The lawsuit, filed at Manhattan federal court, alleges that Staley was aware of Epstein trafficking women and witnessed him abusing them… The woman also claims Staley would often visit Epstein at his homes, which included ‘the massage room’ within his townhouse in New York, as well as his private island in the US Virgin Islands and a ‘victim stash house’ in Manhattan.”
Staley – who also took his wife on their 90-foot yacht named Bequia to Epstein’s ‘Paedo Islands’ in 2015 and whom exchanged 1,200 emails with the paedophile from his JPMorgan email account between 2008 and 2012 alone and goodness knows what communications elsewhere – stands accused in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan specifically of:
“[Being] a regular visitor of Epstein’s … and personally observed Jane Doe 1 as a sexual trafficking and abuse victim at times including through his departure from JP Morgan in 2013.”
“To be clear, during his years as a top executive at JP Morgan, Staley was not only one of Epstein’s closest pals, but more importantly, he was a frequent visitor at Epstein’s townhouse, including visiting the massage room; Staley met many of Epstein’s trafficking victims, including Jane Doe 1; Staley visited the Epstein-owned victim stash house apartments at [an address on the Upper East Side], and Staley personally observed the sexual abuse of young women, including Jane Doe 1.”
“These actions were within the scope of Staley’s employment at JP Morgan.”
“As a result of Staley’s direct and actual knowledge of Epstein’s sex-trafficking venture, JP Morgan had direct and actual knowledge of Epstein’s sex-trafficking venture.”
Curiously Barclays had also previously counted Ghislaine Maxwell as a top-drawer client. The firm turfed out the pension pot plunderer’s dodgy daughter unceremoniously in February 2021, a day after the ‘buyer’ of her Kinnerton Street, Belgravia mews house deposited £130,000 there.
