The Stench of ‘Snow White’ Staley – When Will Anything But Innocent Casino Banker Jes Staley Finally Fall?

As “serious and new” allegations emerge against disgraced banker Jes Staley, when will the sickening stench of his links to Jeffrey Epstein finally result in his being taken down

In May 2018, the casino banker and very, very, very close chum of the since croaked paedophile Jeffrey Epstein that is James Edward Staley (AKA ‘Jes’ to this greedy sod’s few remaining mates) was forced to pay a fine of £642,300 ($793,127, €730,016 or درهم2.913 million) and return of £500,000 ($617,000, €568,000 or درهم2.3 million) of his bonus also after being caught out for “breaching the standard of care required” when he attempted to unmask a whistleblower whilst CEO of Barclays.


Now, as JPMorgan Chase proceed with their case against this 66-year-old Boston, Massachusetts born man who was also their group chief executive between October 2018 and November 2021, Barclays have further sought to distance themselves from Staley.


In a statement released earlier this week to its shareholders, the firm suggested the latest allegations concerning how bankers financed and enabled the sex trafficking operations of Jeffrey Epstein (and thus also in reality Ghislaine Maxwell): “The board has noted the recent allegations made in the context of proceedings involving Mr Jes Staley’s former employer, and against Mr Staley himself, in relation to events a few years prior to his joining Barclays. These allegations are serious and new.”


This morning on Twitter, Matthew Steeples asked: “Are Barclays taking the allegations against their “Snow White” and “Beauty & The Beast” loving former CEO Jes Staley and his involvement with the late paedo Ponzi schemer Jeffrey Epstein seriously enough?” As of 11am on Thursday 30th March 2023, the majority of respondents unsurprisingly favoured the answer: “No; new CEO should speak.”

Attempting to stop further fuel being added to this toxic fire, however, they added: “Barclays itself has received no material new evidence from regulators or law enforcement agencies since Mr Staley left in November 2021.”


Worse still were recent revelations that, in July 2010, Staley had begun a 1,200 strong chain of emails with Epstein featuring all sorts of deviancy. The worst of it included codewords that allegedly related to young girls and included correspondence that numbered:


Staley: “Maybe they’re tracking u [sic]? That was fun. Say hi to Snow White.”


Epstein: “[W]hat character would you like next?”


Staley: “Beauty and the Beast.”


Epstein: “Well, one side is available.”


Asked of the “Snow White” correspondence previously, Staley’s lawyer stated: “[The emails were innocuous]… We wish to make it expressly clear that our client had no involvement in any of the alleged crimes committed by Mr Epstein, and code words were never used by Mr Staley in any communications with Mr Epstein, ever.”


Going further himself in 2020, the 66-year old, Massachusetts born Boston Red Sox fan and Democratic Party donor whined: “Obviously, I thought I knew [Epstein] well and I didn’t. For sure, with hindsight with what we know now, I deeply regret having any relationship with Jeffrey.”


Current JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon – described by CNBC as “one of the most powerful titan’s of Wall Street” and a billionaire who received the Legion d’Honneur courtesy of President Macron in November 2022 – is now about to face a grilling in connection to the scandal also.


Though his spinners are painting Jes Staley as “the rogue employee” and trying to salvage the reputation of Dimon – who has a £393 million ($485 million, €446 million or درهم1.8 billion) stake in the firm he’s been in charge of since 2005 – an attorney for the U.S. Virgin Islands in the case against JPMorgan Chase this week stated:


  • “If Staley is a rogue employee, why isn’t Jamie Dimon?”
  • “Staley knew, Dimon knew, JPMorgan Chase knew.”
  • “They broke every rule to facilitate his sex trafficking in exchange for Epstein’s wealth, connections and referrals.”


Responding, Patricia Wexler, a spokesman for JPMorgan pointedly prattled: “Jamie Dimon has no recollection of reviewing the Epstein accounts.” Mr Dimon, a 67-year-old New York born father of three, faces an under-oath interview in May in early May, Banking Dive yesterday reported.


Discovery continues in this case and further hearings will continue into the autumn of 2023, but frankly, the question on everyone’s lips is: “Will Jes Staley finally be thrown to the wolves and end up as one of the very few exposed in a case that clearly involves many, many, many other very famous faces?”

Jamie Dimon Prince Andrew
In November 2013, Jamie Dimon dined with his firm’s then client Jeffrey Epstein’s former ‘bestie’ Prince Andrew at Buckingham Palace. Of this ritzy escapade, the ‘Financial Times’ reported: “It must have been a welcome spot of light relief for Jamie Dimon. Only days after he finally agreed to a $13bn settlement with US mortgage regulators, the boss of JPMorgan – and dozens of his corporate clients – were sitting back amid the splendour of Buckingham Palace, enjoying a fine dinner and performances by the Royal Philharmonic and the English National Ballet. The event, hosted by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, reflects growing enthusiasm by the Royal Family to use its premises to promote business interests. But it also risks stoking criticism over its apparent commercialisation and its intimacy with business.” Other guests included the former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan, the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Indian industrialist Ratan Tata and the event was organised by another “close personal friend” of the Duke of York, “the veteran City dealmaker” David Mayhew.
“I was her parents’ worst nightmare” – words said by James Staley his very self – will be ringing in the ears of swivel-eyed Debbie Nitzan Staley in the wake of her husband’s former company’s decision to not (yet) payout £22 million the couple were expecting. No doubt that’ll mean one less holiday for her and her two daughters on their 90-foot long gin palace ‘Bequia’ in the coming years.
The now left-out-in-the-cold banker 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 Ghislaine Maxwell – and had six contact numbers as well as an email there. He was clearly a very close associate of the dodgy duo, whatever he may continue to claim.
930 Park Avenue Jes Staley Debbie Staley
Mr and Mrs Staley have owned two apartments at 930 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10028 (#6N and #6S) for some years now. The 22-unit building is described by as “an elegant Renaissance Revival style building comprised of Roman brick, terra cotta, limestone, and granite.” The landmarked, “intimate” pre-war cooperative building was designed by Schwartz & Gross and “offers full services amenities including a full-time doorman, canopied entrance, fitness room and storage.” Conveniently for the Snow White and Beauty & The Beast loving banker: “Pets and in-unit washer/dryers are permitted.”
Jes Staley house Southampton
Acccording to, “the banker with nine lives” Jes Staley and his wife Debora Nitzan Staley purchased a Hamptons property for £10.7 million ($13.2 million, €12.1 million or درهم48.5 million) in October 2021 in spite of already owning a smaller 1-acre “spread” in Southampton. Of it, remarked: “The new place, in the snooty Murray compound in Southampton, sports the essential deeded beach access by way of a hedge-lined grass path. Also, at 2.6 acres, the property is much larger than their current one-acre spread. While the house itself is reportedly a teardown, there’s a sunken tennis court with pavilion, and a gunite pool. The building envelope for the new house is 12,400 square feet, plus a full basement. (Here in the Hamptons, we call the basement the ‘lower level.’ It usually includes a home theater, wine storage, gym, and rooms for staff.) At $1,000 a square foot for high-end building work… well, you do the math for a 12,000 square foot house. The listing says the land has potential to be an important Southampton estate.’ Guess that’s where the Staleys are going with it. Just don’t mention Epstein at the housewarming.”
Allegations about Mr Staley and blackmail and corruption have been doing the rounds for some years now.
Jes Staley (pictured here visiting Downing Street in London when he was the CEO of Barclay’s and still considered ‘Mr Acceptable’ in polite circles) has also been named in a separate lawsuit brought by victims of Jeffrey Epstein. In it, one victim, named only as ‘Jane Doe 1,’ has claimed Staley watched on willingly as Epstein “sexually grabbed young women in front of him” and “benefitted from their close relationship in the receipt of massages, private jet flights with victims or co-conspirators of the operation, and other things of value.” Going further, ‘Jane Doe 1’ added: “[Staley] was the key to making all of Epstein’s depraved dreams of sexual abuse and sex trafficking of countless young women possible.”
Twitter reacts
Twitter users are now predicting the demise of Jes Staley. On 25th March, one user named David remarked: “They’ve got the goods on [him]… He’ll likely be the star of the 3rd chapter in the #Epstein saga due to the sheer volume of accusers and documented dirt on him.”
