Jeffrey Epstein was moving ‘a lot of dough’ in an investment fund linked to an ex-girlfriend’s husband

Published

on

In a new twist in the ongoing questions about where Jeffrey Epstein got his billions, Vanity Fair has details about a very close relationship he holds with the family of an ex-girlfriend.

Epstein once dated a former Miss Sweden for years, before she ultimately met her husband and had a family. Eva Andersson-Dubin, who is now a doctor, married billionaire founder of Highbridge Capital Management, Glenn Dubin. It’s thought that’s how Epstein was able to connect with Dubin’s investments.

When Dubin sold off a piece of Highbridge to JPMorgan Chase for “an undisclosed amount,” Epstein got the fee, but a source close to Dubin disputes he had much of a roll outside the relationship itself. Dubin then introduced Epstein to other hedge fund managers. Things have changed now, the family said in a statement.

They “are horrified by the new allegations against Jeffrey Epstein,” the statement said. “Had they been aware of the vile and unspeakable conduct described in these new allegations, they would have cut off all ties and certainly never have allowed their children to be in his presence.”

Vanity Fair reported that another former Highbridge portfolio manager, Daniel B. Zwirn, held $150 million in Epstein’s fund.

“Dubin prevailed upon Epstein to invest substantially in [Zwirn’s] fund, touting Zwirn’s reliability and business and investment acumen,” Epstein’s lawyers wrote in a court filing from 2010.

Zwirn’s hedge fund ran into problems with the Securities and Exchange Commission when the chief financial officer illegally moved money around without authorization between international and domestic funds to help purchase a Gulfstream jet. Zwirn voluntarily informed the SEC of the transactions and liquidated the fund. Epstein sued to get his money back and won nearly all $150 million.

One day, Kusnan had a brief meeting with Epstein in his Manhattan mansion. A person who has heard the story recalled Kusnan being led into a small room by a butler. Epstein was sitting on “a raised platform, like a throne, with two strikingly gorgeous young Eastern European women standing beside the chair.” Epstein “dismissed” the butler, then “walked backed to his office and sitting on the fax machine was the signed paperwork” from Epstein agreeing to the multi-million-dollar investment.

It’s still unclear how exactly Epstein made the majority of his billions, but these investments provide a glimpse into some of it.

On Monday, while the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump dragged on, Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani took to Twitter to assert that he never, in fact, was looking for "dirt" on former Vice President Joe Biden and his family:

Jane Raskin is doing a masterful job defending me in my role as defense counsel. As she pointed out, I did not dig up dirt on Joe Biden. The information RE his outrageous criminal conduct was handed to me, along with a video tape, 4 witnesses &...

‘Like watching someone get worked up over a dog show’: Internet mocks ‘corrupt’ Pam Bondi trying to impeach the Bidens

Published

on

President Donald Trump's legal team brought up Pam Bondi at the end of the first day, where she proclaimed that the Republicans didn't want to have to address Joe Biden, but they're now forced to because the House brought it up. It was a hilarious claim since it has been the Republican's excuse for Trump breaking the law to begin with.

Bondi was criticized for basically doing what Ukraine refused -- smear the Biden family and put them on trial. But as one professor and legal analyst pointed out, if what the Bidens had done was illegal, Attorney General Bill Barr would have prosecuted them. It's been nearly four years and he still hasn't.
