Attorneys for investment bank JPMorgan Chase accused Democratic officials in the U.S. Virgin Islands of engaging in “quid pro quo” relationships with late financier Jeffrey Epstein in an explosive Tuesday legal filing shared with The Daily Wire.
Lawyers for the U.S. Virgin Islands filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase late last year claiming that the financial institution, which worked with Epstein from 1998 to 2013, financially benefited from his underage sex trafficking schemes. The filing from JPMorgan Chase, which is opposed to an attempt from U.S. Virgin Islands attorneys to toss the company’s defenses, alleged that the government of the territory was the entity which “most directly failed to protect public safety” and “most actively facilitated” the criminal activity.“Epstein could have lived anywhere in the world. He chose USVI,” the document said. “Discovery obtained in this case reveals why. For two decades, Epstein maintained a quid pro quo relationship with USVI’s highest ranking officials.”
