Charities say they never got the donations Jeffrey Epstein claims he made - NBC News

This just keeps getting more interesting by the minute. I cannot imagine how anyone could bullshit so many for so long. Why did no one call out his lies before now?? Is actual tax fraud involved?

Charities say they never got the donations Jeffrey Epstein claims he made - NBC News


In press releases for the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, Epstein claims he donated to more than 100 organizations after pleading guilty to a state charge in a deal with federal prosecutors in Florida and registering as a sex offender in 2008. From 2015 to 2017, Epstein's foundation, Gratitude America Ltd., which was first revealed by the Daily Beast, gave away $1.84 million to charities around the country, according to federal tax filings. Epstein also said he gave $30 million to Harvard University prior to his 2008 plea deal.

But some of the alleged recipients of Epstein's donations said they had not received any donations or they disputed the size of his gifts. In addition, the Chronicle of Philanthropy keeps a running database from 2006 of major gifts more than a million dollars and has no record of any gifts from Epstein, according to staff writer Maria DiMento.

NBC News reached out to 56 charities that were listed as grant recipients in multiple press releases from Epstein's foundation or his foundation's IRS filings between 2010 and 2017. Thirty-two organizations did not return requests for comment. Of the 24 organizations that responded, 10 said they had no record of any donations from Epstein or Gratitude America.

For example, Epstein lists New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art as a recipient of contributions from the Jeffrey Epstein Foundation between 2010 and 2012. According to a spokesperson for the museum, however, "The Metropolitan Museum of Art has not received any major donations from Jeffrey Epstein or his foundation, only that he purchased tickets to two benefits in the early 1990s."

Other organizations that said they had no record of a donation included Duke University, Ohio State University and the Metropolitan Opera. The Elton John AIDS Foundation said it had not received a donation, but Gratitude America's filings show a donation.

Five organizations confirmed donations from Epstein or his foundation. The Santa Fe Institute says the last donation it received from Epstein was in 2010. The institute lists its mission on its tax filing as a "transdisciplinary research community that expands the boundaries of scientific understanding." Jenna Marshall, spokesperson for the institute, said in an email that Epstein's behavior was "appalling" and that SFI had not accepted any money from him since 2010. "Following news of Mr. Epstein's actions," Marshall said, "the SFI leadership team held a meeting and unanimously decided the Institute would not accept any donations from Mr. Epstein

1. Why did no one call out his lies before now??

Because he has the goods on so many in power. He works for one of our strongest "allies" and they got videos. Orgy Island was set up as a trap, as were his mansions in NY and FL.

Last year, The Guardian reported that Epstein’s “little black book” contained contact numbers for A-listers including Tony Blair, Naomi Campbell, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Bloomberg and Richard Branson.

In a 2006 court filing, Palm Beach police noted that a search of Epstein’s home uncovered two hidden cameras. The Mirror reported that in 2015, a 6-year-old civil lawsuit filed by “Jane Doe No. 3,” believed to be the now-married Giuffre, alleged that Epstein wired his mansion with hidden cameras, secretly recording orgies involving his prominent friends and underage girls. The ultimate purpose: blackmail, according to court papers.

“Jane Doe No. 3” also alleged that she had been forced to have sex with “numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders.”
