Billionaires Bill Gates and Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a brief history of meetings, according to a new book by Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie Brown.
The former Microsoft CEO joined the disgraced financier at his Manhattan townhouse at least three times in the early 2010s, including one time during which he stayed late into the night, according to an excerpt of Brown’s new book, “Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story,” which will be released on Tuesday.
Epstein was trying to secure a deal with Gates through his charity, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in which Epstein would help the foundation secure funds, claiming he “had connections to trillions of dollars of his clients’ money,” and reap 0.3% of “whatever money he raised,” Brown wrote, citing a 2019 New York Times report.
Gates also flew with Epstein on the financier’s private jet in 2013 from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, the new book says. Epstein had a house in Palm Beach that played a large role in his alleged sex-trafficking ring, according to prosecutors. Epstein first pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution from a minor in 2008 in a case dating back to 2005.Bill Gates visited Jeffrey Epstein’s NYC townhouse multiple times, new book claims | Fox Business
