Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who is running for the Republican nomination for president in 2024, has made a daring promise to expose Jeffrey Epstein’s “client list” if he is elected president. Ramaswamy is one of the candidates for the Republican candidacy. On Friday, Ramaswamy turned to Twitter to make his demand known in response to the news that Deutsche Bank had settled a lawsuit with Epstein’s claimed sexual abuse victims for $75 million. The case had been filed against Deutsche Bank by the victims.
On Friday, Ramaswamy posted a message on Twitter in reaction to a news report that discussed Deutsche Bank’s agreement to pay $75 million to settle a lawsuit brought by alleged victims of sexual abuse committed by Epstein. “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t act alone. Where’s the client list?”
“Release it now. I’ll do it as President,” he added.
This promise was made by Ramaswamy at a time when there has been a recent uptick in the general public’s interest in the identity of persons who are connected in some way to Epstein, a well-connected billionaire and convicted sex offender. Before Epstein’s death in 2019, which was later determined to be a suicide by hanging, he was charged with many charges of child sex trafficking prior to his death in a Manhattan jail cell. It was common knowledge that he moved around in high-society circles and that he had maintained relationships with a large number of notable persons.
The class-action lawsuit that was initiated against Deutsche Bank by two unnamed women who accused the bank of assisting Epstein’s trafficking activities was recently resolved by the bank through the payment of a settlement of $75 million. The ladies alleged that the bank intentionally benefited from engaging in Epstein’s sex-trafficking organization, impeded enforcement of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, and negligently failed to prevent physical injury. The women also claimed that the bank blocked enforcement of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and failed to prevent physical harm.
The Wall Street Journal’s most recent articles have revealed additional well-known people with connections to Epstein. These individuals were mentioned in Epstein’s private itinerary even though they weren’t mentioned in his famed black book or flight logs. According to Epstein’s itinerary from September 8, 2014, meetings with Bill Gates, Leon Black, Thomas Pritzker, and Mortimer Zuckerman were scheduled for that day. There are contacts between Epstein, CIA Director William Burns, and former MIT Professor Noam Chomsky, according to other records obtained by the Journal.
The idea that Epstein was a spy or agent who was gathering “blackmail material” on the most influential persons in the world is strengthened by the discovery of his secret calendar. Why Epstein met with the CIA Director or the former White House lawyer is a mystery.
According to the Wall Street Journal story, the meetings took place after Epstein had served time in prison in 2008 for a sex offence involving a juvenile.
A recent article from The New York Times claims that Peter Thiel most certainly met with the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein “several” times in 2014.
Ramaswamy is not the only candidate who has pledged to make public records of great public interest available. The leading Republican and prospective presidential contender, former President Donald Trump, recently declared that he would make all documents pertaining to President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination public. Trump directed the release of over 2,800 uncensored papers to the National Archives website while in office, although he kept a small number back due to concerns about national security, law enforcement, and foreign policy.
In 2018, Trump’s office gave the justification that the public’s immediate interest in disclosure outweighs any measurable harm to national security, law enforcement, or foreign affairs. Trump has now committed to reviewing those redactions throughout the course of the following three years and releasing the remaining material early in his conceivable future term.
When asked if there was anything in the JFK archives that the public ought to be worried about, Trump declined to answer, saying he didn’t want to talk about it. However, he emphasized the fact that he had already made assassination-related materials public.
