Just days after filing a case against JPMorgan Chase for allegedly aiding Jeffrey Epstein, Attorney General Denise George has obtained a crushing verdict.
This is the most surprising turn of events that has occurred since Epstein, a rich banker and alleged pimp to world elites, was arrested for sex trafficking teenage girls and later showed up dead in a New York City jail where he was awaiting trial for those charges.
The Hill reports that on Tuesday, December 24, George filed a complaint against the financial behemoth JPMorgan Chase, accusing the Wall Street firm of turning a “blind eye” to the behavior of the late infamous billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
“Virgin Islands Attorney General Denise George said in a complaint filed in a Manhattan District Court that JPMorgan Chase facilitated the trafficking of minors for sexual abuse at the hands of Epstein. In her lawsuit, George accused the bank of knowingly “provided and pulled the levers through which recruiters and victims were paid.”
George also said in the case that the banking behemoth ignored warning signs for years while providing banking services to Epstein and his linked firms and entities, frequently profiting from account deposits.
Attorney General Eric Holder stated that JPMorgan Chase was “indispensable to the operation and concealment of the Epstein trafficking enterprise.”
“Upon information and belief, JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint,” George alleged, “and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank.”
Now, about a week after filing the complaint, Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan has sacked Attorney General Denise George.
The Daily Mail states:
In a statement released on Sunday, US Virgin Islands Governor Albert Bryan Jr. announced that he had “relieved Denise George of her duties as attorney general this weekend” without providing any specifics.
George, who served as attorney general of the territory for four years, filed a major case against JPMorgan on Tuesday, accusing the bank of ‘knowingly supplying and pulling the levers via which [Epstein’s] recruiters and victims were paid.’
She did not notify Bryan of her intention to bring the case, and the episode was the last straw in the governor’s increasingly strained relationship with her, a person acquainted with the situation told the Virgin Islands Consortium.
The representative for Bryan informed DailyMail.com that rumors claiming the JPMorgan lawsuit as the basis for George’s departure were ‘not totally correct.’
Richard Motta Jr., the governor’s spokesperson, declined to speak more, stating in a statement, ‘I am not authorized to discuss personnel-related specifics.’
Monday morning, George did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
Governor Bryan, who is chosen by the territory’s citizens, released a statement on New Year’s Day stating, ‘I relieved Denise George of her duties as attorney general this weekend.’
Bryan stated, ‘I thank her for her service to the people of the Territory during the past four years as Attorney General and wish her the best in her future endeavors.’
