Deceased sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein helped raise funds for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) Media Lab in the years prior to his death, as the university ignored his conviction for soliciting underage prostitutes to exploit the fiend’s wealthy connections.
The New Yorker obtained records showing that Epstein served as an intermediary of sorts between the M.I.T. Media Lab and some of the world’s most influential donors. Epstein helped to rake in $7.5 million for the lab, with investor Leon Black allegedly giving $5.5 million and globalist technophile Bill Gates allegedly giving $2 million.
The M.I.T. Media lab was well-aware of Epstein’s history as a sexual abuser at the time, but looked the other way because he was bringing in so much cash. Joi Ito, director of the M.I.T. Media Lab, referred to Epstein as “he who must not be named” because of the child sex predator’s toxic reputation.
M.I.T.’s president, L. Rafael Reif, has admitted his university’s ties with Epstein and apologized for them publicly. He wrote last month, “with hindsight, we recognize with shame and distress that we allowed MIT to contribute to the elevation of his reputation, which in turn served to distract from his horrifying acts. No apology can undo that.”
But according to internal e-mails leaked from the M.I.T. Media lab, there was far more of a connection between Epstein and the university than administration officials led the public to believe.
“Could you re-up/top-off with another $100K so we can extend his contract another year?” Ito wrote to Epstein in 2014 about a researcher at the firm, and Epstein responded affirmatively.
“Make sure this gets accounted for as anonymous,” Ito wrote of an Epstein donation. Peter Cohen, who was formerly the M.I.T. Media Lab’s Director of Development and Strategy, made the order explicitly: “Jeffrey money, needs to be anonymous. Thanks.”
The M.I.T. Media Lab also went through great lengths to conceal Epstein’s involvement in helping procure massive donations from the world’s elite.
“This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein,” Ito wrote in one email.
“For gift recording purposes, we will not be mentioning Jeffrey’s name as the impetus for this gift,” Cohen replied.
The donation was ultimately recorded as “Gates is making this gift at the recommendation of a friend of his who wishes to remain anonymous,” according to the report. Gates officially denies working closely with Epstein.
Gates’ spokesperson told the New Yorker that “any claim that Epstein directed any programmatic or personal grantmaking for Bill Gates is completely false.” However, it was reported in 2013 that the two men met at that time to discuss “ways to increase philanthropic spending,” according to a CNBC report.
Epstein played up his ties with Gates to leaders of the M.I.T. Media Lab.
“Gates would like a write up on our one science program for tues next week,” Epstein wrote to Ito in one e-mail.
The email records make it clear that Black was tied very closely to Epstein as well.
“Can you ask Jeffrey to ask Leon that?” Cohen asked about whether Black wanted his donation to be anonymous, before adding, “We can make it anonymous easily, unless Leon would like the credit. If Jeffrey tells you that Leon would like a little love from MIT, we can arrange that too. . . .”
In the fall-out from the New Yorker exposé, Ito was forced to resign from his position as the director of the M.I.T. Media Lab.
“After giving the matter a great deal of thought over the past several days and weeks, I think that it is best that I resign as director of the media lab and as a professor and employee of the Institute, effective immediately,” he wrote to his former colleagues.
“Because the accusations in the story are extremely serious, they demand an immediate, thorough and independent investigation,” Rief wrote in response to the scandal.
A University system that has become an incubator for cultural Marxism nationwide has shown yet again that it has no scruples when it comes to putting money in its coffers.
Ghislaine Maxwell Expected to Be Housed in Same Prison Where Jeffrey Epstein Died Mysteriously
Jeffrey Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by the FBI yesterday, in news widely celebrated by supporters of transparency and justice, but she may never get an opportunity to tell secrets about all of the powerful individuals serviced by Epstein’s illicit network.
Reports indicate Maxwell is likely to be housed in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City, the same facility that housed Epstein during his death. Epstein’s death was ruled by official authorities as a suicide despite his broken neck while guards were absent and nearby surveillance videos were destroyed.
Maxwell’s case is being moved to the Southern District of New York, which is the jurisdiction where she is being charged. She is expected to be transported to New York on Friday, where she will be either housed at the MCC or the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss was asked during a recent press conference about what authorities are planning to do to ensure Maxwell’s safety.
“As you know, we are sensitive to that concern and certainly we’ll be in dialogue with the Bureau of Prisons about it,” Strauss said to deflect the question.
Maxwell faces charges of conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and two counts of perjury.
Big League Politics reported earlier this week on how the courts are ordering the destruction of documents detailing Maxwell’s alleged role in Epstein’s pedophile network:
A federal judge has ordered the attorneys of Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre to destroy documents related to Ghislaine Maxwell, an Epstein confidant who has been frequently named as his former collaborator in child sex trafficking.
Senior U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska made the determination in lawsuits Giuffre and her attorneys, Cooper and Kirk, have filed against Maxwell and former Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz. Preska rejected Dershowitz’s attempt to change a protective order to receive documents for his defense in the defamation case while ordering Giuffre’s attorneys to destroy documents from a previously-settled case involving Maxwell.
Preska wrote in her decision that “discovery materials designated CONFIDENTAL cannot be disclosed or used outside of the confines of the Maxwell action” and “that properly designated discovery materials may only be disclosed to specific groups of individuals, including attorneys ‘actively working on’ the Maxwell litigation.” Preska believes that Giuffre’s new attorneys do not meet this standard.
“As a practical matter, the Court would be surprised – shocked, even – if Cooper & Kirk was not in some sense “using” the Maxwell discovery in its representation of Ms. Giuffre in her action against Mr. Dershowitz,” Preska speculated. “And, even if it was not doing so, Cooper & Kirk is not ‘actively working on’ the Maxwell matter such that disclosure of discovery materials to it would be permissible under the plain terms of the protective order.”
Because of her assumptions, Preska is ordering all of the Maxwell documents, with the exception of Giuffre’s testimony in the case, to be destroyed effective immediately.
The deep state may be getting ready to remove another loose end in Maxwell before she can release sensitive information exposing influential globalist predators.
