According to court records made public by the Southern District of New York, Jeffrey Epstein introduced Kathryn Ruemmler, an attorney for the Obama White House, to staffers of JPMorgan Chase in 2019.
NOTE: Kathryn “Kathy” Ruemmler is an attorney who formerly served as Principal Deputy White House Counsel and then White House Counsel to President Barack Obama. Previously a partner at Latham and Watkins co-chairing its white-collar defense group, Ruemmler joined Goldman Sachs in 2020 as a Partner and Global Head of Regulatory Affairs. In 2021, she was promoted to Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel.
The report was released in response to a lawsuit filed by the government of the U.S. Virgin Islands against JPMorgan for allegedly aiding Epstein in the sex trafficking of minors to the Virgin Islands.
The court documents claim JPMorgan processed many wire transfers from Epstein to several women and allege the bank failed to adequately investigate the Democrat insider’s dubious past.
Just last month, the bank settled a legal dispute in the Southern District of New York, paying the accusations of Epstein $290 million because the bank had covered up the billionaire’s sexual abuse.
The U.S. Virgin Islands government allegedly assisted Epstein’s trafficking network, according to JPMorgan’s defense.
The lawsuit claims that the well-connected financier offered money and favors in exchange for immunity to high-ranking Virgin Islands government officials.
After being abruptly sacked in December 2022, the Virgin Islands’ Attorney General, Denise George, admitted under testimony that Epstein had “political influence over or with the Governor” of the Caribbean territory.
