A private calendar owned and used by the late financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein details the meetings he once held with major figures in the worlds of business and politics.
As reported by the Daily Caller, the newly-unearthed documents reveal that Epstein once met with Kathryn Ruemmler, former counsel for the Obama Administration, on numerous occasions after she left government and before she joined her current job at Goldman Sachs. Their first meeting took place in August of 2014.
Epstein first met with Ruemmler to discuss her possible representation of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a far-left organization named after and run by the Microsoft founder and his now-ex-wife. In response to the new claims, a spokesman for Gates claimed in a statement that Epstein never worked for Gates in any official capacity.
Epstein and Ruemmler ultimately met over three dozen times over the next few years, during her time as a defense attorney for the white-collar law firm Latham & Watkins.
“In the normal course, Epstein also invited her to meetings and social gatherings, introduced her to other business contacts and made referrals,” said a spokesman for Goldman Sachs. “It was the same kinds of contacts and engagements she had with other contacts and clients.”
Epstein subsequently connected Ruemmler with Ariane de Rothschild, the current CEO of Edmond de Rothschild Group, a private bank in Switzerland. The bank ultimately ended up hiring Latham & Watkins to help deal with U.S. regulations. Epstein himself would go on to make business deals with Edmond de Rothschild Group, including a contract for $25 million in 2015 between the bank and Epstein’s own Southern Trust Co.
Back in 2019, Edmond de Rothschild released a statement claiming that Epstein had never met with Ariane de Rothschild. Since the release of the new calendar, the bank has issued a new statement acknowledging that the prior statement was false, and admitted that Epstein met with her from 2013 to 2019, during which time she introduced him to major American finance leaders, recommended law firms, and consulted with each other on taxes and various financial risks.
Epstein was arrested in July of 2019 on sex trafficking charges, having been previously arrested and convicted in 2008. While awaiting trial, Epstein died by mysterious circumstances in his jail cell, giving rise to numerous theories about the true nature of his death.
