Jeffrey Epstein allegedly had a secret diary that contained information about his friendships with powerful people which he kept as an ‘insurance policy.’
Pedophile Epstein – who palled around with notables including Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump – was said to have kept a ‘meticulously detailed’ diary of his many friendships with the rich and famous, according to the Mirror.
Sources told the newspaper that Epstein, a convicted sex offender who faced federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York, kept the diary as a form of insurance.
It’s existence supposedly became known when Epstein’s alleged victims’ lawyers obtained a statement from Prince Andrew as part of US authorities’ investigations.
The former financier, 66, was found hanging in his prison cell shortly before 7am and was rushed to nearby New York Presbyterian-Lower Manhattan hospital where he was pronounced dead.
His death came just hours after a US court unsealed a bombshell cache of documents pertaining to a 2015 lawsuit filed against Epstein’s longtime girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, were unsealed, revealing damning new details about Epstein’s alleged crimes.
NYC’s Chief Medical Examiner has completed Jeffrey Epstein’s autopsy but said Sunday more information is needed before a cause of death can be determined.
But, now that he’s dead, there’s speculation that Epstein’s secret diary surfacing could lead his powerful friends to panic about what he’d written.
‘All Jeff ever had he bought, including his friends,’ a source told the Mirror. ‘He used his wealth to buy buddies and then bestow his money on those he courted.’
The sourced added that Epstein ‘knew’ that being friends with rich and famous people ‘brought him protection’ and that was why he kept the detailed diary – ‘in case he ever needed it.’
Word of Epstein’s secret diary broke as the alleged victims of his sex trafficking and federal authorities said they intend to keep pursuing their cases against him, despite his death.
Lawyer Jack Scarola, who represents many of Epstein’s alleged victims, told the Mirror that his clients are ‘hopeful that other victims may be relieved of some of the fear that has prevented them from coming forward while Epstein was still alive.’
In addition, Scarola noted, ‘There is little doubt victims who have not yet come forward have information that will help bring Epstein’s co-conspirators, enablers, recruiters, and fellow traffickers to justice.’
He also said that his clients wouldn’t ‘rest easy until all of those who participated in Epstein’s crimes are brought to justice – no matter their past or current station in life.’
US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement Saturday: ‘To those brave young women who have already come forward and to the many others who have yet to do so, let me reiterate that we remain committed to standing for you.
‘And our investigation of the conduct charged in the Indictment — which included a conspiracy count — remains ongoing.’
Berman’s reference to the conspiracy count suggests that accomplices to Epstein’s crimes could soon face charges….
