Exposing Epstein’s allies
“Epstein’s enablers flew on his jets and visited his island and did multi-million-dollar deals with him even after he was convicted and jailed on a charge of soliciting underage girls for prostitution. Now they are starting to be held to account for their complicity.”

Citing Epstein scandal, MIT workers demand Reif testify at 401(k) trial
“The group of current and former MIT workers who are suing the school over its 401(k) plan won’t get Fidelity Investments CEO Abigail Johnsonon the stand. But they’re still pushing to get MIT President L. Rafael Reif to testify at next week’s trial, and they’re using the ballooning Jeffrey Epstein scandal in pursuit of that goal.
The plaintiffs made a court filing early Monday arguing that Reif should be required to testify, based on his response to Friday’s New Yorker exposé about the MIT Media Lab’s ties to Epstein. The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported that the Media Lab knew about Epstein’s sex offense conviction and tried to hide his ties to donations it accepted.”
