Musk: Virgin Islands Epstein subpoena ‘idiotic on so many levels’

Makes Statement0 Comments

Musk responds to the U.S. Virgin Islands government’s subpoena for documents in its lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase involving Jeffrey Epstein, calling it “idiotic” and “absurd.”  and denying ever bsing advised by him. The government said its investigation revealed JPMorgan “knowingly, recklessly and unlawfully provided and pulled the levers through which Epstein’s recruiters and victims were paid.”

This is idiotic on so many levels:

1. That cretin never advised me on anything whatsoever.

2. The notion that I would need or listen to financial advice from a dumb crook is absurd.

3. JPM let Tesla down ten years ago, despite having Tesla’s global commercial banking business, which we then withdrew. I have never forgiven them.

Virgin Islands subpoenas Musk for Epstein documents

Court filing0 Comments

The US Virgin Islands subpoenas Musk to obtain documents in its litigation against JPMorgan Chase bank regarding the activity of Jeffrey Epstein when he was a customer. (The Virgin Islands government accuses the bank of “knowingly benefiting” from Epstein’s sex trafficking.) The filing states that Epstein “may have referred or attempted to refer” Musk to JPMorgan as a client, adding:

The Government contacted Mr. Musk’s counsel via email to ask if he would be authorized to accept service on Mr. Musk’s behalf in this matter, but did not receive a response confirming or denying his authority.

The subpoena seeks all communications between Musk and JPMorgan regarding Epstein, communications between Musk and Epstein himself, and all documents regarding fees that Musk paid to Epstein or to JPMorgan regarding Musk’s accounts or relationship with JPMorgan. It also asks Musk for all documents relevant to Epstein’s involvement in human trafficking and his procurement of girls or women for commercial sex.
