Steve Mnuchin has a mysterious link to Epstein pal accused of procuring young models: report

Published

According to a report from the Daily Beast, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s name appears on legal documents for a modeling agency run by a friend of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who also has been accused of sexual assault.

The reports states that years ago, “Mnuchin [was] listed as the official state point of contact for Next Management Corporation, a company formed in 1988 by modeling-industry insiders Jean-Luc Brunel” at a time when Brunel was accused of drugging and raping at least three models. Brunel has also been accused of supplying young models to Epstein — a charge he has denied.

According to the Beast, Mnuchin name is found on documents filed with the New York Department of State for Next Management Corporation, explaining, “According to department officials, the DOS process is the person who files a company’s registration papers and receives lawsuits and other official documents on their behalf—usually a lawyer or some other legal representative.”

Representatives for Mnuchin said he was unaware that his name was listed in connection with the company, but that he is a longtime friend of Faith Kates, who co-founded the Next modeling agency with Brunel and his brother.

“Mnuchin has been friends with Kates for approximately 30 years, according to the Treasury Department official, and once helped Kates set up a business ‘as a friend,'” the Beast reports. “A spokesperson for Kates confirmed the two had been friendly for decades. She said Mnuchin had offered Kates business advice when she started Next Management Company and served as her real estate broker.”

As for Kates, she is at a loss how Mnuchin’s name popped on on the legal docs for Brunel’s modeling agency.

“Ms. Kates was never involved with Next Management Corp. in any way,” a spokesperson said. “Given that, she never designated anyone, including Sec. Mnuchin, to be a DOS process or any officer or director of Next Management Corp.”

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.

A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.

The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.

"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
