Just in case you missed it, Gates and Epstein are deeply connected.
The tech billionaire and the financier met several times, and had several business dealings together according to an older report from Business Insider.
Other outlets highlighted their meetings and business connection as well.
This is something that we can’t forget, and maybe through the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell even more information will be revealed on Gates’ involvement with Epstein.
Bill Gates wonders why people just can’t trust him, but with figures like Esptein in his life and on his ledger people have every right to be suspicious of him.
Take a look:
Business Insider had all the details:
An email written by the MIT Media Lab Director Joi Ito says Gates was "directed by" Epstein to donate $2 million to the research lab in October 2014.
That joins several other reported run-ins between the two wealthy men, years after Epstein was convicted of two counts of soliciting underage girls for prostitution in Palm Beach, Florida in 2008. In July, Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy, and he committed suicide in jail in August.
A spokesperson for Gates told Business Insider that "Although Epstein pursued Bill Gates aggressively, any account of a business partnership or personal relationship between the two is categorically false," and denied the contents of the email from Ito, saying "Any claim that Epstein directed any programmatic or personal grantmaking for Bill Gates is completely false."
CNBC reported this:
Microsoft founder and multibillionaire Bill Gates said Wednesday that he “made a mistake” meeting with convicted sex criminal and wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein to discuss philanthropy.
Gates, speaking at The New York Times Dealbook Conference in New York, said he thought his discussions with the now-deceased money manager would bring in billions of dollars for his global health efforts.
But “that was a mirage,” Gates said. “None of that money ever appeared, and I gave him some benefit by the association, so I made a doubly wrong mistake there.”
Epstein, 66, had amassed a long list of famous and wealthy contacts – including Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump – years before he died in a Manhattan federal lockup in August facing charges including sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking conspiracy. His death was ruled a suicide.
