Epstein Sex Trafficking Lawsuit Targets JP Morgan As Defendant … Plaintiff Is The Virgin Islands


Jeffrey Epstein may be long dead and gone, but people will be sorting through the mess he left behind for a long time to come.

JP Morgan is now feeling the heat for dubious dealings with Epstein that the Virgin Islands’s AG alleges to be part of a pattern of criminality, and of ‘turning a blind eye’ to the infamous sex trafficking perpetrated by Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire friend of the rich and powerful.

USVI Attorney General Denise George said her suit filed on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court was part of an “ongoing effort” to hold accountable those who facilitated Epstein’s activities. Epstein brought many of his victims to his villa on Little St James, the private island he owned.
“Human trafficking was the principal business of the accounts Epstein maintained at JPMorgan,” the USVI complaint states.

Sounds pretty serious. What exactly is the lawsuit about?

“Over more than a decade, JPMorgan (JPM) clearly knew it was not complying with federal regulations in regard to Epstein-related accounts as evidenced by its too-little too-late efforts after Epstein was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges and shortly after his death, when JPMorgan (JPM) belatedly complied with federal law,” states the complaint filed by US Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George.
…The lawsuit claims that JPMorgan Chase failed to make proper regulatory filings that could have tipped off the government to Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking ring of underage girls through private islands he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In particular, the government argues that JPMorgan Chase should have given Epstein closer scrutiny as a client after he entered a guilty plea to soliciting prostitution with a minor in Florida in 2008

So, is JP Morgan having their feet held to the fire over a ‘didn’t file the paperwork’ issue, or is there something more to this story?

The documents submitted by the US Virgin Islands’ (USVI) attorney general accuse JPMorgan of “turning a blind eye” to illegal activities committed by Epstein – a client of the bank – on his private island, Little St James, which is part of the Caribbean US territory.
The USVI attorney general, Denise George, said the bank should have known about the financier’s crimes and should have reported them as part of anti-money laundering laws.
“JPMorgan knowingly, negligently and unlawfully provided and pulled the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid and was indispensable to the operation and concealment of the Epstein trafficking enterprise,” the lawsuit states according to reports. “Human trafficking was the principal business of the accounts Epstein maintained at JPMorgan.”

Turning a blind eye… should have reported them… knowingly, negligently and unlawfully…

The case is not just about failing to file paperwork. It’s alleging a coverup.

The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages for violating sex-trafficking, bank-secrecy and consumer laws. It claims that the bank concealed “wire and cash transactions that raised suspicion of a criminal enterprise whose currency was the sexual servitude” of women and girls. –Guardian

Since Epstein rubbed shoulders with so many rich and powerful friends, it makes you wonder how many other suits are quietly being drafted by legal teams around the world.

Jeffry Epstein may or may not have actually killed himself. But his ghost continues to haunt those who knew him.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
