Top Google, JP Morgan and Hyatt Officials Probed in Jeffrey Epstein Lawsuit

(Ken Silva, Headline USASome of the world’s most powerful businessmen are having their connections to Jeffrey Epstein scrutinized, thanks to recent action in two lawsuits against JPMorgan Chase for allegedly helping the deceased pedophile finance his human trafficking network.

According to reports, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon was deposed this week as part of a lawsuit anonymous Epstein survivors filed against the bank last November. Dimon is also expected to be deposed by the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands—where Epstein had his infamous “pedophile island”—in May.

Additionally, the USVI attorney general has issued subpoenas to Google co-founder Sergey Brin, Hyatt Hotels executive chairman Thomas Pritzker, venture capitalist Michael Ovitz and billionaire U.S. News & World Report owner Mortimer Zuckerman, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“The subpoenas from the U.S. territory’s attorney general seek any communications and documents related to the bank and Epstein,” WSJ reported Friday, citing anonymous sources. “The four men are some of the wealthiest people in the U.S., and it couldn’t be determined why they were being asked for the communications and documents.”

Meanwhile, the USVI is looking to further expand its lawsuit against JP Morgan. Lawyers for the U.S. territory filed a motion Monday, seeking to add a new obstruction charge.

The proposed complaint also contains a new detail, alleging that bank executives openly joked about Epstein’s pedophilia.

“Epstein’s behavior was so widely known at JPMorgan that senior executives joked about Epstein’s interest in young girls,” the USVI attorney general said in the proposed expanded complaint.

JP Morgan has yet to respond to the USVI’s latest filing. The bank has denied any wrongdoing in the matter.

The USVI and survivor lawsuits filed against JPMorgan Chase came after Epstein’s estate reached the $105 million settlement with the U.S. Virgin Island’s government last November.

Epstein died at a federal jail in New York in August 2019 while awaiting trial. He had pleaded not guilty to charges of sexually abusing dozens of girls, some as young as 14 years old.
