Investigative journalist Liz Crokin made this revelation during her April 10 appearance on "Right Now with Ann Vandersteel" on Brighteon.TV. Crokin has been doing a deep dive into the Epstein story for a long time.
According to Vandersteel, the Epstein boomerang is back in flight with JPMorgan and other banks being targeted for their role in moving money for the convicted sex offender. She added that the government of the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) has a lot of questions for JPMorgan.
Crokin, an award-winning author and documentary film producer, said the USVI filed a complaint against JPMorgan late last year. Moreover, the USVI subpoenaed four other individuals – three of them billionaires – in its lawsuit against the bank. As the case moves forward and certain documents are unsealed, Crokin said people are starting to see more information about it.
"What the [USVI] is claiming is that Epstein was using JPMorgan as his main bank, and his bank accounts were used for his sex trafficking operation," Crokin replied to Vandersteel's question about the USVI's moves. "They claim that JP Morgan not only knew about it, but basically helped him cover it up."
According to her, the original complaint mentioned "co-conspirators" or individuals who participated either directly or indirectly and conspired with Epstein in a pattern of criminal activity related to sex trafficking. It also alleged that Epstein brought high-profile clients to JP Morgan in exchange for turning a blind eye to his criminal activity.
"Some of these people … were part of Epstein's pedophile ring, but maybe [he] used to bring them as clients to JPMorgan. JPMorgan then, in effect, will continue turning a blind eye to his criminal activity as the [USVI] is alleging."
According to Crokin, the individuals subpoenaed by the USVI are as follows: Google co-founder Sergey Brin, real estate investor Mortimer Zuckerman, Creative Arts Agency co-founder Michael Ovitz and Hyatt Hotel chair Thomas "Tom" Pritzker. Vandersteel zeroed in on Pritzker, a member of the well-known Pritzker family that funds several charities.
Crokin then pointed out that the majority of the Pritzkers are very left-wing, using much of their money and philanthropic efforts to push transgenderism. They are also major donors to the Democratic Party, with Tom himself being one of the biggest donors to Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign.
According to the investigative journalist, an interesting fact about Pritzker is his history of being aligned with Epstein. Crokin mentioned a lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein's victims, alleging that she was forced to have sex with Pritzker. If Giuffre's allegation is true, it would make Pritzker a criminal accomplice in Epstein's sex trafficking enterprise. (Related: FBI routinely covers for sex-trafficking pedophiles like Jeffrey Epstein.)
Another interesting thing about Pritzker is that he was No. 1 in Epstein's black book. Crokin pointed out that the late sex offender, who was found dead in his jail cell back in 2019, was probably trying to tell people that Pritzker was his No. 1 guy, client or co-conspirator.
Crokin said information showing Pritzker's ties with Epstein and the allegations against the Hyatt Hotel chairman was open-source. However, the mainstream media is acting ignorant about why someone like him was subpoenaed by the USVI.
