Epstein’s private calendar included references to high-profile figures like CIA chief, Goldman Sachs’ top lawyer
By Ethan Huff // Jan 10, 2024

The circle of people who surrounded pedophile child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein after he was convicted as a sex offender is much larger than previously thought.

The so-called Epstein files show many high-profile names who associated with Epstein in the aftermath of his sex conviction, including William Burns, director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) since 2021. In 2014, Burns had three separate meetings scheduled with Epstein, according to Epstein's private calendar, followed by a personal visit by Burns at Epstein's Manhattan townhouse.

Kathryn Ruemmler, a White House counselor under President Barack Obama, reportedly had dozens of meetings with Epstein in the years following her stint in Washington, D.C., and before she eventually became a top lawyer at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in 2020.

Some of the other names listed on Epstein's private calendar include:

• Leon Botstein, president of Bard College, who invited Epstein and a group of young females to campus

• Noam Chomsky, a professor, author and political activist who was scheduled to fly with Epstein and have dinner at his Manhattan townhouse in 2015

"He also planned for her (Ruemmler) to join a 2015 trip to Paris and a 2017 visit to Epstein's private island in the Caribbean," note Khadeeja Safdar and David Benoit, writing for the Wall Street Journal.

Everyone associated with Epstein now in denial about it

To be clear, none of the aforementioned names appear in Epstein's infamous "black book," which recently became public. At the same time, each of these folks reportedly hobnobbed with Epstein, presumably to benefit from his wealth and connections.

Botstein claims he was simply trying to get Epstein to donate to his school when he invited Epstein and the young girls to campus for a visit. Chomsky says he and Epstein used to discuss political and academic topics, suggesting there was nothing involving sex trafficking in their discussions.

Whether or not these claims are true remains unknown as everyone is now trying to distance themselves from Epstein ever since the guy was convicted of sex crimes.

"The director did not know anything about him, other than that he was introduced as an expert in the financial services sector and offered general advice on transition to the private sector," also claims CIA spokeswoman Tammy Kupperman Thorp about Burns' connections to Epstein.

"They had no relationship."

Ruemmler did maintain a professional relationship with Epstein in connection to her role at law firm Latham & Watkins LLP, but allegedly did not travel with him, according to a Goldman Sachs spokesman.

Epstein reportedly introduced Ruemmler to numerous potential legal clients, including Microsoft Corp. co-founder and billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates.

"I regret ever knowing Jeffrey Epstein," Ruemmler now says in her defense.

Epstein's crimes against young girls first came to light publicly in 2006 when he was accused of sexually abusing underage children at his Florida mansion. In 2008, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other law enforcement entities investigated the matter and reached a deal with prosecutors.

Epstein avoided federal charges and pleaded guilty to soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution. He then registered as a sex offender and served about 13 months in a work-release program.

In 2006 when these revelations first came to light, many of Epstein's political donation recipients returned the funds. Other associates moved to distance themselves from Epstein, including his biggest known client, retail billionaire Leslie Wexner, who cut ties with him in 2007.

Epstein's bank, JPMorgan Chase, also ended up closing all of Epstein's accounts in 2013, though some bankers continued to meet with him for years after that.
