The Epstein-Intelligence Connection - Part 3 | Epstein's Unknown Years
Epstein “had a relationship with a woman, that her father was very wealthy, and that’s how he started his own money.” - Maritza Vasquez
Little is definitively known about Epstein's life post-Bear Stearns, a period shrouded in as much mystery as the man himself. Mainstream media often glosses over this era, reducing it to vague mentions of Epstein becoming a "money manager for billionaires" or “striking out on his own.” But this phase of Epstein’s story, rich in speculation and scarce in concrete detail, is arguably one of the most intriguing.
Beyond the sparse, often reluctant coverage lies a web of fascinatingly shady characters and twisted tales. These accounts offer a glimpse into a world where Epstein's path crossed with figures like Douglas Leese, a man whose own story is as shadowy as it is disputed. Contradictory narratives from former friends, journalists, and associates paint a picture that is difficult to decipher but impossible to ignore.
This article delves into the murky waters of Epstein's activities and connections during this enigmatic period. From rumors of espionage to questionable financial dealings, we explore the various threads that make up this complex tapestry. Brace yourself for a journey into a chapter of Epstein's life that many have bypassed, but few have truly understood.
What Happened after Bear Stearns
Epstein's story post-Bear Stearns, in the early 80s, is a time that Epstein's professional life appears to take a shadowy turn, one that's been partly illuminated by his former friend, journalist Jesse Kornbluth.
Kornbluth, a personal friend of Epstein’s, shared some juicy tidbits of his life back then. He recalls describing himself as "working for governments to recover money looted by African dictators." However, there's a twist in the tale. Kornbluth also claims that Epstein occasionally played both sides of the fence by "subcontracting to those same autocrats to help them hide their stolen money."
Kornbluth's revelations and his work at Bear Stearns moving money offshore for the wealthy demonstrate that Epstein was comfortable walking the line of legality and morality. Let’s explore how Epstein was not just a financial guru but a master of manipulation, playing a high-stakes game with international implications.
