- Denise George, Virgin Islands Attorney General, was fired after filing a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase for allegedly facilitating, sustaining, and concealing Jeffrey Epstein’s human trafficking network.
- The lawsuit stated that JPMorgan Chase ignored evidence of human trafficking for over a decade due to Epstein’s financial influence and the potential clients he could bring to the bank.
- Mere days after filing the lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase — scheduled for trial in 2023 — Denise George is summarily removed from her position as Virgin Islands Attorney General.
Denise George, the Virgin Islands Attorney General, lost her job after suing JPMorgan Chase for allegedly facilitating, sustaining, and concealing Jeffrey Epstein’s human trafficking network.
The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, accused the bank of ignoring evidence of human trafficking for over a decade due to Epstein’s financial influence and promised business deals.
The lawsuit alleged that “JP Morgan turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint, and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank”
“These decisions were advocated and approved at the senior levels of JP Morgan, including by the former chief executive of its asset management division and investment bank, whose inappropriate relationship with Epstein should have been evident to the bank.”
The lawsuit pointed out, “Indeed, it was only after Epstein’s death that JP Morgan belatedly complied with federal banking regulations regarding Epstein’s accounts.”
This action came after Epstein victims accused both JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank of “complicity” in the sex trafficking scheme.
While Epstein died before his trial, his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
George’s lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase is related to the proposed class action lawsuits filed against the bank and Deutsche Bank, which are currently pending and scheduled for trial in 2023.
The removal of George from her position as Attorney General, just days after filing the lawsuit, raises questions about the influence of big banks and their potential involvement in corrupt and exploitative practices.
