Real Hedge-Fund Managers Think Epstein’s Actual Business Was Blackmail

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor.

“I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record.

Kass was well-connected on Wall Street, where he’d worked for decades, so he began to ask around. “I went to my institutional brokers, to their trading desks and asked if they ever traded with him. I did it a few times until the date when he was arrested,” he recalls. “Not one institutional trading desk, primary or secondary, had ever traded with Epstein’s firm.”

When a reporter came to interview Kass about Bernie Madoff shortly before that firm blew up in the biggest Ponzi scheme ever, Kass told her, “There’s another guy who reminds me of Madoff that no one trades with.” That man was Jeffrey Epstein.

“How did he get the money?” Kass kept asking.

Given this puzzling set of data points, the hedge-fund managers we spoke to leaned toward the theory that Epstein was running a blackmail scheme under the cover of a hedge fund.

  3. Just like J Edgar Hoover of the FBI, had “Dirt Files” on America’s “Rich and Powerful”(including Presidents, politicians, and anyone with any influence at all), which gave him enormous POWER over The Establishment, and was able to manipulate them. Such was Hoovers power that even Presidents couldn’t afford to ‘cross’ him.

    It is SO much easier today, with electronic surveillance, and of course hidden camera’s(not to mention BRIBERY….I mean “DONATIONS”.
    Once you’ve got dirt on someone, you own them. How else could Israel hold such absolute power over the “Most Powerful Nation on Earth”? AND, of course, it helps if you own the country’s Monetary system as well.

  4. A news story yesterday broached the subject that noone seems to know where his money comes from. Benfactors bought his megamillion Manhattan digs – they mentioned a Wexner ( who ever he is ). This Wexner seemed to really like Epstein. It looks like the “Lolita Express” was full of donors.
