Are we witnessing another scandal unfold before our eyes?
Possibly, according to new reports.
The former CEO of Barclays, Jes Staley exchanged over 1,200 emails with convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein.
Within those emails were strange code names such as “Snow White” which has many people believing that Staley and Epstein were talking about trafficking children.
You might remember other code words like “pasta” or “hot dog” or other code words representing vile things have surfaced before and even been corroborated by the FBI.
Is that what was going on here?
Or did Staley just really love Disney movies?
We report, you decide.
According to reports Staley lawyers claim his client had strictly a business relationship with Epstein; which is hard to believe if the two reportedly went out for drinks and set codes to each other using Disney character names.

The Guardian shared these details:
The former Barclays chief executive Jes Staley reportedly exchanged 1,200 emails with disgraced financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein over four years, some of which featured unexplained terms such as “snow white”.
The report detailing the cache of emails comes less than two weeks after Staley resigned from Barclays after being shown the preliminary conclusions of a regulatory investigation over his links to Epstein.
The City watchdog had been investigating how the banking boss described his links with Epstein to the bank, as well as the information that was subsequently relayed by Barclays to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The results of that investigation have not yet been made public, and Staley intends to contest the findings.
The inquiry was launched after emails between Staley and Epstein, dating back to Staley’s time at the Wall Street bank JP Morgan, were handed to UK regulators by their counterparts in the US.
Those emails reportedly showed a close relationship between the two men, according to the Financial Times, citing sources familiar with the emails. And while many of the emails sent between 2008 and 2012 were in relation to arranging drinks or discussing news articles, the regulator noted that certain terms were unexplained.

How many more wealthy business men were emailing Epstein?
There’s probably too many to count.
