Latest Batch of Epstein Files Implicates LinkedIn Co-Founder, Ex-Treasury Sec., Woody Allen

'In retrospect, he seems to be a terrible version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but at the time seemed to be an intelligent person...'

(Robert Jonathan, Headline USA) More details have emerged about the extent to which pedophile pimp Jeffery Epstein mingled with the 1-percenters of American society, several of whom are now regretful over their association with the now-deceased Epstein, a convicted sex-offender at the time.

The latest trove of documents reviewed by the Wall Street Journal indicated that “the disgraced financier kept a busy schedule, filling his days with meetings with politicians, executives and celebrities, including at his New York townhouse and his residence in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

According to the latest revelations published by the news outlet, this included ex-Harvard University President Lawrence Summers, who was U.S. treasury secretary in the Bill Clinton administration and later an Obama economic advisor; billionaire Linked-In co-founder Reid Hoffman, who is a big Democrat donor; and movie director Woody Allen.

Prior documents that the WSJ reported on earlier this week suggested that Epstein met with CIA director William Burns; Noam Chomsky, a left-wing activist academic; Leon Botstein, the longtime president of Bard College; and Kathryn Ruemmler, White House counsel under Obama.

Bill Clinton himself allegedly was pals with Epstein.

Summers reportedly sought Epstein’s advice when he was trying to raise $1 million for his wife’s online poetry project. Summers’s wife, Elisa New, is a Harvard professor as is Summers.

Epstein donated millions to Harvard itself while Summers was president in the 2001-2006 time frame.

The Ivy League bastion rejected subsequent donations from Epstein after he pled guilty in June 2008 to state charges in Florida.

“In 2016, a nonprofit linked to Epstein donated $110,000 to Ms. New’s nonprofit,” the WSJ reported.

Through a spokesperson, Summer expressed deep regret about being in contact with Epstein after the Florida conviction.

New’s nonprofit similarly was regretful over accepting the Epstein cash, which was later donated to a group fighting sex-trafficking.

Hoffman said he contacted Epstein in connection with raising funds for MIT “and that he regrets interacting with Epstein after his conviction.”

The billionaire—who is currently said to be underwriting E. Jean Carroll’s rape lawsuit against former President Donald Trump—has admitted to visiting Epstein’s private island, colloquially known as “Pedophile Island,” while on a fundraising trip.

“While I relied on MIT’s endorsement, ultimately I made the mistake, and I am sorry for my personal misjudgment,” Hoffman said.

According to the WSJ, Allen “attended dozens of dinners with his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, at Epstein’s mansion”—which an Allen rep described as “group social events.”

The once-celebrated Annie Hall director, himself a casualty of the #MeToo movement, also “invited Epstein to film screenings.”

In addition to America’s movers and shakers, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak was a regular visitor to Epstein’s New York City townhouse, where they chatted about politics.

“In retrospect, [Epstein] seems to be a terrible version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but at the time seemed to be an intelligent person, socially well connected and of wide areas of interest, from science to geopolitics,” Barak said.

According to the WSJ, the leader of Israel’s leftist Labor Party said he never participated in any parties or activities with girls or women.

Summers’s spokesperson said his meetups with Epstein after the latter’s conviction—and after Harvard stopped accepting his checks—“primarily focused on global economic issues.”

Epstein supposedly committed suicide on Aug. 10, 2019, in a Manhattan lockup while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.

“The documents reviewed by the Journal, which include thousands of pages of emails and schedules from 2013 to 2017, provide new details about the nature and frequency of Epstein’s contacts with an array of powerful people long after he was a registered sex offender,” the WSJ summarized.
