In 2013, disgraced hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein was a well known child trafficker and pervert. Just five years earlier, Epstein was sentenced to 13 months in prison for soliciting underage girls in Palm Beach County, Florida. Since then, more victims have come forward. In 2019, Epstein was charged for running a sex trafficking ring and engaging in sex acts with girls as young as 14. Epstein was facing a 45-year prison sentence for his crimes, but before he could work with prosecutors, he reportedly committed suicide in his prison cell.
If Jeffrey Epstein was a known child sex trafficker, why did one of the world’s most influential billionaires, Bill Gates, ride on one of Epstein’s private jets in 2013? Why would Bill Gates seek this kind of company? A breaking report from CNBC finds that Bill Gates met with Epstein just a few years after Epstein got out of prison for soliciting underage women. According to the report, Gates met with Epstein to “discuss ways to increase philanthropic spending.”
A spokesperson for Bill Gates didn’t deny that the two had met and rode privately on a plane together. According to flight logs, Gates and Epstein flew from New York to Palm Beach, Florida in March of 2013. The two rode together privately with no other passengers on board. Gates was reportedly flying with Epstein to meet his family. Gates did not ride on Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” which allegedly transported underage girls to and from his private island.
In 2000, Gates stepped down as CEO of Microsoft but remained the company chairman through 2013. He is well known for his philanthropic pursuits with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, so why would the multi-billionaire want to convince pervert Epstein to increase his philanthropic spending?
Gates spokesperson Bridgitt Arnold told Business Insider that Epstein pursued Bill Gates aggressively but the two did not share “any account of a business partnership or personal relationship.” Epstein classified himself as an “informal advisor” to Gates, but Epstein reportedly hyped his connection to Gates to appear important. Arnold said, “Epstein never provided tax, estate or services of any kind to Bill Gates.”
Strangely enough, Jeffrey Epstein’s will (written two days before his untimely death) listed a former Bill Gates advisor as an executor of the will. Bill Gate’s former science advisor, Boris Nikolic, was listed as a “successor executor” of Epstein’s estate. Nikolic is a biotech venture capitalist. After leaving Gates in 2014, Nikolic founded several gene-editing businesses. In fact, Nikolic possessed a $42 million stake in one gene-editing company, Editas Medicine Inc. Right now Nikolic is distancing himself from the fact that he was included as an executor of Epstein’s will.
To date, much of Bill Gate’s “philanthropy” revolves around investments in genetic engineering and reckless vaccine distribution in third world countries. According to 2017 tax filings, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has at least $32 billion in assets. Bill Gates himself is worth over $100 billion. So why would Bill Gates take a private plane ride with a known child sex trafficker to convince him “to increase his philanthropic spending?”
It turns out, Jeffrey Epstein also had an interest in genetic engineering. According to scientists who spoke with the child sex predator, Epstein expressed interest in impregnating up to twenty women at a time at his New Mexico ranch to create “genetically superior” babies from some of the most successful people in society. At one time, he even expressed interest in preserving his penis after death using cryogenics.
No matter the case, it is apparent that Jeffrey Epstein was a very influential businessman, even after being convicted of trafficking young girls. His criminal, morally-repugnant, and decadent lifestyle apparently slipped by the good judgment of well-known political figures, British royalty, and billionaire philanthropists.
