US Virgin Islands Makes Shocking Allegation Against JPMorgan CEO In Jeffrey Epstein Lawsuit

Jamie Dimon

An attorney for the U.S. Virgin Islands alleged in federal court that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon knew about Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking crimes.

“Jamie Dimon knew in 2008 that his billionaire client was a sex trafficker,” attorney Mimi Liu told Manhattan U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff at a Thursday hearing, CNBC reports.

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

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.”

A U.S. judge ruled earlier this month that JPMorgan Chase must provide additional records from CEO Jamie Dimon relating to the lawsuit.

JPMorgan Chase has attempted to dismiss the lawsuit and shift legal responsibility onto former executive Jes Staley.

From Fox Business:

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.

“If Staley is a rogue employee, why isn’t Jamie Dimon?” Liu said at the hearing.

“Staley knew, Dimon knew, JPMorgan Chase knew,” she added in reference to Jeffrey Epstein’s criminal activities.
