Judge Orders JPMorgan Chase to Provide Additional Documents From CEO Relating to Jeffrey Epstein Sex Trafficking Lawsuit


In light of the recent banking collapses, news relating to Jeffrey Epstein has fallen under the radar over the past few days.

Recall that the U.S. Virgin Islands sued JPMorgan Chase for ‘enabling’ and ‘facilitating’ Jeffrey Epstein’s sex crimes.

U.S. Virgin Islands Sues JPMorgan Chase for ‘Enabling’ Jeffrey Epstein Sex Crimes

Former U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George accused JPMorgan Chase of “knowingly providing and pulling the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.”

The complaint was filed in Manhattan District Court.

The lawsuit claimed JPMorgan Chase ignored the truth surrounding Epstein and his crimes to keep him as a client.

On Thursday, a U.S. judge ruled that JPMorgan Chase must provide additional records from CEO Jamie Dimon relating to the Jeffrey Epstein lawsuit.

"JPMorgan has spent the past few months fighting in court to shield its CEO Jamie Dimon, but today a big setback," Fox News host Laura Ingraham said.

"A judge has ordered JPMorgan Chase to hand over more documents to the U.S. Virgin Islands concerning its CEO Jamie Dimon," Fox News Senior National Correspondent Kevin Corke explained.

"That request is actually part of the territory's lawsuit against the bank, accusing it of aiding Jeffrey Epstein and his sex trafficking ring."


Fox Business reported:

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan said the bank must turn over requested documents from 2015 to 2019 – a period after which JPMorgan had dropped Epstein as a client.

The Virgin Islands lawsuit claims Epstein used his accounts at the bank to pay for more than 20 sex trafficking victims even as top executives repeatedly flagged troubling abuse allegations against him.

JPMorgan has tried to dismiss the lawsuit, noting the Virgin Islands government has already settled with Epstein's estate for more than $100 million.

The lawsuit comes as the bank has filed two complaints in federal court, claiming former bank executive Jes Staley, protected Epstein and engaged in sexual assault while working for the company.

JPMorgan wants the former private banking chief, Jes Staley, to reimburse the bank for damages it might incur in the other lawsuits and return eight years of compensation.

"Staley's acts of disloyalty occurred repeatedly, lasted for years, and persisted despite numerous opportunities to correct them," JPMorgan wrote in court filings as it demanded Staley return eight years of compensation.
