Staley Sued – Disgraced Banker Jes Staley Pursued By J. P. Morgan

As disgraced ‘casino banker’ Jes Staley gets sued by J. P. Morgan, Matthew Steeples calls for other noxious names linked to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to also face justice

Father of two James Edward Staley (AKA ‘Jes Staley’) is facing further woes in the wake of the death of the friend he once wanted to give a “heartfelt hug,” the late paedophile Ponzi schemer Jeffrey Epstein.


Yesterday, with news shared by Anna Wise in, that his former employers, the New York based bankers J. P. Morgan, “wants “to hold Mr Staley personally liable for any financial penalties that J. P. Morgan may have to pay in two related cases,” came further woes for a man exposed as somewhat sinister after revelations about his bizarre ‘Snow White’ referencing emails to his croaked chum emerged in February.


Of the latest development, Wise observed:


“It also wants to force Mr Staley to repay wages that he earned during the time he was allegedly aware of the abuse and repeatedly ‘personally observed’ Epstein’s behaviour.”


“‘In light of Staley’s intentional and outrageous conduct in failing to disclose pertinent information and abandoning (J. P. Morgan’s) interests in favour of his own and Epstein’s personal interests, (the bank) is entitled to punitive damages,’ J. P. Morgan said in its lawsuit. A lawyer for Mr Staley had no comment.”


“J. P. Morgan’s case was filed after the bank was sued by the government of the US Virgin Islands, as well as by a woman identified as Jane Doe, who was allegedly abused by Epstein.”


“Previous lawsuits have shown Mr Staley and Epstein exchanged hundreds of emails and text messages over the years, and they were seen to have a close relationship that went beyond the professional relationship a banker would have with a wealthy client.”


“The bank continues to deny the allegations in its lawsuit but appears to allege Mr Staley may have committed sexual assault.”


“It notes in its lawsuit that the anonymous Ms Doe described a ‘powerful financial executive’ who could ‘use his clout within JPMorgan to make Epstein untouchable.’”


“Mr Staley left J. P. Morgan in 2013 to become CEO of London-based bank Barclays.”


“He resigned last year after a report by British regulators into his past links with Epstein.”


Going further, in a statement to The Guardian’s banking correspondent Kalyeena Makortoff, J. P. Morgan additionally added:


“While the conduct Epstein was accused of is despicable, the lawsuits against JPMC are misplaced and without merit. The plaintiffs have made troubling allegations concerning the conduct of our former employee Jes Staley, and if true he should be held responsible for his actions.”


“At the time, we could not have imagined any of our employees would engage in the type of conduct alleged. We expect all of our employees at every level of the firm to act with honesty and integrity. If these allegations against Staley are true, he violated this duty by putting his own personal interests ahead of the company’s.”


Now, again today, I remind readers of a key fact in this matter: Why haven’t those that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficked to yet to face justice? The clock is still ticking and there is still time for the many other powerful, pugnacious people linked to this sordid story to be brought to justice.

Pictured Top – Jes Staley and his Brazilian interior decorator wife Debora Nitzan Staley living it up at a Barclays sponsored bash in happier times. The website ‘Wagcenter’ references how her family founded the data centre company Aceco and “sold the bulk of it to KKR in 2014.”


Jes Staley, at the time a senior JP Morgan executive (left), with former treasury secretary Lawrence Summers and Jeffrey Epstein in 2011 at the latter’s Lenox Hill, New York mansion.
That mansion – known as the ‘Paedo Palace’ and situated at 9 East 71st Street, Lenox Hill, New York, NY 10021, USA – was sold for about £36 million in March 2021 after being placed for sale for £69 million in September 2020. Epstein got it “free” from his close “chum” Leslie Wexner, but claimed to have paid £14.5 million for it in 1998. He met with Staley there on multiple occasions.
“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 – 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 next claim.
The ‘Beauty & The Beast’ email trail will now forever haunt the former JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Barclay’s banker.
Jeffrey Epstein - Jes Staley blackmail(1)
Allegations about Mr Staley and blackmail and corruption have been doing the rounds for some years now.
In times past Labour peer Lord Mandelson – ‘Mandy’ to his dear and always very wealthy muckers – described the former Barclay’s boss Bob Diamond as “the unacceptable face of banking.” Peter Mandelson, meanwhile, was quite happy to hang out with Jeffrey Epstein, a mutual mate of his successor Jes Staley, at his £10 million Paris paedo pad circa 20th January 2007 in spite of the taxi driver turned sex trafficker having been charged with soliciting a woman for prostitution in August 2006. Lord Mandelson and Jeffrey Epstein are pictured here celebrating the latter’s birthday with wine and a cake presented by a diminutive butler named Valdson Viera Cortin. Clearly, Epstein owned the bankers and their cohorts more than they owned him.
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.”
