Child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein claimed he made a fortune trafficking weapons and drugs, and former associates claim he worked with intelligence agencies around the world, according to a new report.
Vicky Ward, a journalist who was one of the first to cover Epstein nearly two decades ago, wrote in a new piece at Rolling Stone that Steven Hoffenberg, a former Epstein associate she visited in prison in 2002, said Epstein operated in intelligence circles around the world.
Hoffenberg, who was in prison for a Ponzi scheme, said he was conned by Epstein, who took millions from him and then cooperated with federal prosecutors in providing information against Hoffenberg.
Hoffenberg “claimed that Epstein moved in intelligence circles,” Ward wrote, adding Epstein became enraged when she asked him about Hoffenberg. Ward said Epstein threatened her personally if she wrote about his relationship with Hoffenberg, whom Epstein claimed not to know. Ward said Epstein’s reaction was similar to how he responded to questions about his relationships with young girls.
Hoffenberg told Ward that Epstein learned how to move money off-shore and that he was mentored by a British arms dealer, Douglas Leese, who died a decade ago.
Jeffrey Epstein’s newly discovered 1997 address book, published by Insider on Tuesday, connects dozens of new names to Epstein and traces previously known relationships back to the 1990s. One of the new names belongs to Cristina Greeven Cuomo, a New York editor and entrepreneur. She married Chris Cuomo, a CNN anchor and brother of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, in 2001.
The book lists Greeven Cuomo under a minor misspelling of her birth name, Cristina Greeven. Her entry refers to Manhattan File, a New York society magazine she published after her father purchased it in 1994. The same entry includes an office address in the New York City neighborhood of SoHo, an office phone number, and a home phone number. In the ’90s, Greeven Cuomo was known for hanging out with socialites like Alex von Furstenberg and the former CNN producer Pamela Gross. The latter appears in both “little black books” and is now a close friend of Melania Trump.
It’s unclear why Greeven Cuomo is listed in the 1997 address book. She serves as the editor in chief of The Purist, a wellness website she founded in 2017. A message left with The Purist seeking comment from Greeven Cuomo was returned almost immediately by Chris Cuomo, who declined to comment for the record or make his spouse available.
In the fall of 1982, a money manager named Harold Levin got a phone call that would change his life. A lawyer representing Leslie H. Wexner, the founder and CEO of the women’s apparel retailer The Limited, said Wexner was looking for a financial adviser. Would Levin be interested? Levin most certainly was. In Columbus, Ohio, where Levin lived, Wexner was a legend. Wexner grew The Limited from a single Columbus store into a global retail empire that included mall fixtures Abercrombie & Fitch, Victoria’s Secret, and Bath & Body Works.
Levin landed the job after six months of grueling interviews. He wasn’t making Masters of the Universe money—Wexner paid a salary of $250,000 a year—but it was enough for Levin to move his family into a 6,000-square-foot house across the street from Wexner in Bexley, Columbus’s most exclusive suburb. By 1986, Wexner ranked sixth on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans, with a net worth estimated at $1.4 billion. “In New York, I had bankers constantly taking me out to dinner,” Levin told me. Once, a banker arranged a private tour of Le Bernardin. “The kitchen was so clean, you could eat off the floor,” Levin remembered. Wexner entrusted Levin with increasingly ambitious projects. Starting in the mid-1980s, Levin purchased thousands of acres of farmland in New Albany (population 414) on the outskirts of Columbus, where Wexner planned to build his very own town modeled on an 18th-century Georgian village. “Les sent me to Richmond, Virginia, to look at architecture he wanted to copy,” Levin said.
Disgraced government employee Dr. Anthony Fauci is longtime friends with the current Joe Biden White House science adviser Eric Lander. The late accused human trafficker Jeffrey Epstein claimed that he funded Lander, and records reveal that Lander met with Epstein after Epstein’s conviction for pedophilia. Epstein, of course, was good friends with Fauci’s ally and vaccine-pushing partner Bill Gates.
Eric Lander recently said that he desires a vaccine for the NEXT pandemic (meaning, another pandemic AFTER Coronavirus) within 100 days of its emergence. When the U.S. Senate confirmed Lander for the position of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director, Fauci chimed in to confirm that he is longtime friends with the Epstein-funded scientist. Fauci said, “I look forward to working with Dr. Lander, who personifies collaborative and cross-disciplinary science. Eric has been a valued colleague and friend for many years. He is a true polymath – a scientific leader, geneticist, molecular biologist, mathematician, teacher, and science communicator whose keen intelligence and vision will serve the research enterprise well.”
A prestigious New York prep school that has come under criticism for teaching first-graders about masturbation in a highly detailed video presentation once employed infamous pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a teaching position during the 1970s, National File confirmed Tuesday.
As National File previously reported, first-grade students at the $55,000 per year Dalton School were reportedly shown videos explaining and encouraging masturbation as part of “sex education lessons.” The video features child cartoon characters uttering phrases such as “Sometimes, I touch my penis because it feels good,” and, “Sometimes, when I’m in my bath, or when mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too.” One character is told “it’s okay to touch yourself and see how different body parts feel.”
Dalton School has a long and prestigious history as an education facility for the children of wealthy families, and has employed several noteworthy figures in its history. One such figure is William Barr, erotic novel author and father of disgraced former Attorney General Bill Barr, who served as the school’s headmaster in 1974. Barr saw fit to hire Jeffrey Epstein to a teaching position in 1974, as reported by the New York Times.
