The Wall Street Journal has revealed a number of probable names in Jeffrey Epstein's black book, based on research into his connections and meetings with the rich, famous, and prominent.
The Journal investigated Epstein's dealings between 2013 and 2017, long after he was a registered sex offender known to have preyed on underage and young girls. Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting and procuring a minor for prostitution.
Some of the Journal's findings suggested that the people in question didn't know what Epstein was doing or protected themselves against associations with his sexual proclivities, while others are more questionable.
Epstein had associations on both sides of the political aisle, the Journal said, referring to meetings with several backers and major donors to former President Donald Trump as well as his longstanding relationship with former President Bill Clinton and a brief period in which he held meetings with Bill Gates.
Many of those listed in the Journal's piece said they didn't know about Epstein's sexual abuse of young girls or thought he had been rehabilitated.
Others cut ties with him after his arrest in 2019 for further sex trafficking. A version of the black book is said to contain nearly 1,000 names of business and personal associates.
